Everyone can now shop the #NSALE! .

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to EVERYONE (hip hip hooray!). Nordstrom let me know that there are going to be more restocks in the coming days, so if there’s something you really want – don’t fret! You have a good chance of snagging it. Pro tip: add the item to your Wish List and then download the Nordstrom App – it will notify you when the item comes back in stock. And of course I’ll be posting over on my Instagram to alert you guys, too!

So, here is a roundup of all the items that are either in stock right this second or Nordstrom has said will be restocked. Happy shopping!

In Stock *or* To be Restocked

  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This funnel neck pullover is really high-quality and super soft. It is pretty lightweight, so it would be a good option to wear earlier in the fall, or layer with a jacket when the temperature dips even more. The color is a beautiful tan, camel color that will go with a lot of different fall accessories.
  • Price: Originally $69.00, marked down to $39.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 25×26.
  • Quality: I’m SO pumped y’all, because this is the first pair of “mom jeans” I’ve tried on that I really love! The wash is a perfect light blue and there’s slight distressing over the right kneecap. I love that they’re not TOO baggy and they’re actually figure-flattering (which is hard to find in a pair of mom jeans!). The price is pretty great, too, at less than $70. They look great with both booties and tennis shoes.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $64.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: I thought this set was too cute not to pass up! In person it’s a gorgeous, happy pink color. This sweatshirt is a bit cropped but does not show too much stomach. However, you might want to wear a sports bra with it if you plan to be lifting your arms above your head a lot!
  • Price: Originally $68.00, marked down to $42.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: These joggers are super soft and comfortable. They are high-waisted (which I like) and the drawstring makes them easily adjustable to fit your waist. These would be cute paired with a white T-shirt as well.
  • Price: Originally $68.00, marked down to $42.90
  • Sizing: On the smaller size. I’m wearing an XS. If in between sizes, size up.
  • Quality: The quality of this sweater dress is insane – it’s SUPER thick and I could tell that it will really keep me warm in the winter months. I like that it has a small slit in the leg, but not too high (you could definitely wear this in a corporate setting). I think it looks very classy.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $59.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This turtleneck sweater is soooo soft – it really feels like a cloud! It’s a little on the thinner side so it will also be nice for layering in the fall and winter. I think the Grey Light Heather is a beautiful color and pairs well with black, blue and tan.
  • Price: Originally $59.00, marked down to $39.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This is one dress that doesn’t look like much online, but I fell in love with it in the store. The pattern and colors are so beautiful in person, they remind me of a crisp fall day when the leaves are changing! The sleeves are sheer and it has a faux tie at the waist. I think it’s so flattering and would look good on so many different body types!
  • Price: Originally $99.00, marked down to $59.90
  • Sizing: If you want to wear it as a dress, size up two sizes. I’m wearing a M.
  • Quality: This sweater offers the same thickness and quality that I love from Free People. It’s REALLY thick (and soft!) and would keep you warm in the winter months, especially paired with leggings. The camel color is a rich, multi-dimensional color and so pretty in person. If you get your normal size, it will fit more like a top rather than a dress. This was one of my favorite purchases from the sale this year!
  • Price: Originally $128.00, marked down to $79.90
  • Sizing: Runs small. I’m wearing a 1(S).
  • Quality: SO many good black dresses in the sale this year! This one is a bit of an investment, but it’s REALLY thick. You can’t see any underwear lines because the material is so thick, and the bonus is that it would keep you warm in the winter, too! The tie-waist detail is incredibly figure-flattering, and it has a small slit on both sides. I think this dress would be perfect for a date night!
  • Price: Originally $149.00, marked down to $99.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: I got really excited about this knit dress because it’s made of a soft, silky material and you can definitely tell it’s a designer dress when you’re wearing it. I just know I will throw this on over and over again this summer and fall – it’s that “easy” type of dress that looks just as good with booties as it does with tennis shoes. The black is slimming and the tie around the waist accentuates your figure. 
  • Price: Originally $195.00, marked down to $119.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: I wore a pair of Moonlight Pajamas in the hospital after giving birth – they are THAT good. The material is very soft and feels luxurious on your skin. I have a bunch of other colors from years past, but I love this year’s leopard version!
  • Price: Originally $65.00, marked down to $42.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This faux shearling bomber jacket is one of the cutest jackets in the sale this year! It has soft faux shearling on the outside and faux leather trim around the cuffs, as well as a pocket. I really like how this one is cropped but not cropped too much. In my opinion, it’s the perfect length! I think it definitely feels like a $98 jacket, so the price is awesome. 
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $54.90
  • Sizing: Runs small. I’m wearing a S.
  • Quality: I decided to get a small in this dress because I felt that the XS was a bit too tight, especially on my stomach and butt! I found that the small was a perfect fit and did not leave me feeling self-conscious. This dress would look so good paired with a chunky cardigan or blazer. I personally like adding a belt to the middle to break up the black. 
  • Price: Originally $59.00, marked down to $38.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This belt is an unusual take on animal print – the pattern is very unique and different and looks great with a lot of fall basics. Since the belt is patterned, I prefer to wear it with solids! 
  • Price: Originally $42.00, marked down to $27.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This tee is one of the trendier items in the sale. I don’t normally gravitate towards graphic tees, however I LOVE this one! It’s a light blue and lavender color, made of a high-quality material and is slightly cropped to make it easier to tuck into jeans. I personally like it styled with mom jeans!
  • Price: Originally $69.00, marked down to $44.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 25×26.
  • Quality: I’m SO pumped y’all, because this is the first pair of “mom jeans” I’ve tried on that I really love! The wash is a perfect light blue and there’s slight distressing over the right kneecap. I love that they’re not TOO baggy and they’re actually figure-flattering (which is hard to find in a pair of mom jeans!). The price is pretty great, too, at less than $70. They look great with both booties and tennis shoes.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $64.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This shacket is SO thick and cozy! I like that it’s a little longer because it will definitely keep you warm in the winter. The colors remind me of a pumpkin spice latte with shades of brown, taupe and rust. It also has snap closures, so no annoying buttons.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $59.90
  • Sizing: I wear a medium in these because I don’t like for them to be super tight!
  • Quality: These are always the #1 selling item in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I understand why! They are universally flattering and so comfortable. They also last for a long time! The pair I’m wearing is a few years old and looks brand new.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $64.90
  • Sizing: These run a little big, size down half of a size. I’m wearing a 6.5.
  • Quality: These are very similar to the Marc Fisher Izzie boots that are my very favorite boots for fall and winter, yet the price is INCREDIBLE! I really cannot believe that these are $100 off. They look so cute with leggings and jeans and will keep your toes and feet nice and toasty. These have a thicker sole than the Izzie boots, which makes them look a little trendier in my opinion! I know it might feel weird to buy these boots in July, but I PROMISE you will be thanking yourself come October. (If you want to see some posts where I styled similar boots, check out this link.)
  • Price: Originally $249.00, marked down to $149.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: The quality of this shacket is incredible. It’s lined inside for double thickness and warmth. The buttons are functional buttons. It runs oversized so that you can easily wear a chunky or oversized sweater underneath. I love it with jeans and also with the Spanx faux leather leggings!
  • Price: Originally $49.00, marked down to $31.90
  • Sizing: TTS, I’m wearing an XS. Size up one for a looser fit. 
  • Quality: This is your perfect everyday, casual dress. It’s made of a really soft ribbed material, and the little slit at the bottom adds a feminine touch. It looks good with booties and a wool hat, or with tennis shoes and a baseball cap! It’s not see-through at all, but it is a little form-fitting – if you want a looser fit, size up one.
  • Price: Originally $46.00, marked down to $25.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: I love the new take on this Thread & Supply jacket from last year. Instead of a pullover, it’s offered in a jacket version that is a LOT easier to take on and off. It has snap closures all down the front, two pockets on the side and a front pocket with a snap closure as well. This honestly feels like wearing a blanket! It is SO cozy and makes me want to run to Starbucks and a grab a hot coffee!
  • Price: Originally $49.00, marked down to $31.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: “I’m not just a regular grandmom, I’m a cool grandmom!” That’s what Caitlin told me when I first tried on this camo tee! But seriously, I really do love this camo tee, and wearing camo does make you feel cool. I paired it with a cardigan to elevate the look. 
  • Price: Originally $19.00, marked down to $12.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 4.
  • Quality: These are the “grandmom” jeans I was referring to! I wasn’t sure I was going to like these, but they’re actually my favorite pair that I bought from the sale. Sometimes it’s nice to get outside of your comfort zone. And speaking of comfort, I think these are SO much more comfortable than skinny jeans! They have a higher waist, too.
  • Price: Originally $165.00, marked down to $109.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This colorblock cardigan reminds me of the cardigan from the Anniversary sale last year that I loved so much. I especially like the neutral colors in this year’s version. This sweater feels very soft and I really like the quality.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $59.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: This T-shirt dress is very high-quality and made of a thick ribbed material. It’s a great every day dress to run errands in! The only potential downside to this dress is that it might not work if you’re on the shorter side. I am 5’3 and you can see where it hits me.
  • Price: Originally $69.50, marked down to $44.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 7.
  • Quality: These booties are SO well made and comfortable, and I love how they’re a rich brown color. Very different and unique from the other pair of booties I got from the sale!
  • Price: Originally $189.00, marked down to $99.90
  • Quality: I love this Tory Burch bag. You can wear it with the straps attached as a crossbody, or take the straps off to turn it into a clutch. The color originally looked a little summery to me, but I found that it went with many of the fall outfits I tried on.
  • Price: Originally $268.00, marked down to $149.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 7.
  • Quality: Can you guys BELIEVE that this was the only pair of booties I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year? Usually I walk away with at least a few pairs that I wear all of fall and winter, but I was not super impressed with the booties in person this year! However, I do love this pair. And I mean love. They are extremely comfortable, come up high enough on your ankle to wear with both trendy cropped jeans and mom jeans, and they are the PERFECT color. The other tan booties from the sale had a green cast to them in person, while these were perfectly neutral. You’ll see this pair of booties over and over again throughout this blog post, as they truly went with every single outfit! 
  • Price: Originally $150.00, marked down to $99.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 7.
  • Quality: I really liked the rich cognac color of these over-the-knee boots, and knew I would want them come fall! They’re made of a really soft microsuede, and I love how trendy they look with the flared block heel. They’re a little loose on my legs just bare, but fit perfectly over a pair of skinny jeans (which is how I would most likely wear them). 
  • Price: Originally $134.95, marked down to $89.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 7.
  • Quality: These mules are a nice update from the ones from last year – I love the big chain links, as they really make a statement! The color “tan suede” is the perfect color to pair with your entire fall wardrobe. They’re also perfect to wear to work, especially if you have to be on your feet for long periods of time, since they’re super comfortable. 
  • Price: Originally $89.95, marked down to $59.90

To Be Partially Restocked

Nordstrom has let me know that these items will be partially restocked… so if they don’t have your size, keep checking back!

  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 25.
  • Quality: These jeans were a little bit outside of my comfort zone and I was hesitant to try them on, but I love them! This is a great pair if you’re looking to try out the straight jean trend without spending a lot of money, since they’re marked down to less than $55. I found that they fit TTS and that they look really cute in the waist and butt area! They look great with booties, too.
  • Price: Originally $98.00, marked down to $54.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: On the hanger, this flannel didn’t look like anything special… but once I tried it on, I was wowed. There’s something about the fit and the way it hangs on your body that is spot-on! For summertime, you could style it with white denim, but I really love it with dark jeans for the fall. 
  • Price: Originally $54.00, marked down to $35.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing an XS.
  • Quality: I really like the casual look of this corduroy shirt jacket! When paired with distressed skinny jeans it creates such an effortless combinations that looks so good together! This “shacket” is also super comfy and warm!
  • Price: Originally $49.00, marked down to $31.90
  • Sizing: TTS. I’m wearing a 7.
  • Quality: I actually only bought one pair of booties from the sale this year… and the rest were tall boots, including this pair by Sam Edelman. The color of these is really a standout – they are the perfect light camel color and they’re incredibly high-quality, the suede is buttery soft to the touch. The only downside of these is you will have to buy a suede protector, since the color is pretty light, I’d be scared that they would get scuffed up or stained from excessive wear. However, they are WORTH IT! The squared-off toe is very on-trend, as is the wooden block heel. 
  • Price: Originally $225.00, marked down to $149.90

I can’t remember exactly when I first started using Olaplex (it was sometime during my pregnancy because I remember asking you guys if it was pregnancy-safe), but it has worked wonders for my hair. This trio of products (a bond strengthener, moisturizing shampoo and reparative conditioner) is formulated specifically to reduce breakage and visibly strengthen hair. Because I use heat products so often on my hair, I was in desperate need of something to help stop and reverse the damage, and I think this set has helped a TON. I don’t use it every single week since I like to switch up my hair products a lot, but I would say at least three times per month since I got it! (Which is a lot since I wash my hair only once per week lol). My bottles are almost out, so I quickly added this Olaplex Bond Maintenance Hair Care Set to my Wish List it as soon as I saw that it was a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s an awesome deal because you get a jumbo sized No. 3 Hair Perfector (8.5 oz) for the price of a normal size (3.3 oz). Everyone else I know that uses this also raves about it!

I’ll be back again soon! Xoxo
