This year I will be shopping from home and on-line because… three kids. Momma has a hard time leaving the flipping house these days. I do a majority of my fall clothes shopping during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale because they have all the latest fall style essentials and you get free shipping and free returns. This year the sale starts on July 21st but if you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you get early access which begins on my birthday, July 13th! Yaas. Let the shopping begin my friends!

Jeans at the Nordstrom 2017 Anniversary sale

I always find the best jeans on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Some are designer denim and some can be found in B.P. Whatever your budget is, look for distressed boyfriend jeans, released hem, skinny jeans, and bootcut this season.

Basic Tops

At the Nordstrom sale, I like to stock up on basic tops that can be worn with everything. With that said, there are always some good steals on trendy tops that may or may not end up in my Nordstrom shopping bag. Here are some styles I am on the hunt for.

  1. Adidas Originals tank for $21

Sweaters and Cardigans

I love to purchase sweaters at the Nordstrom anniversary sale for layering throughout the fall and winter months. Cardigans are my absolute favorite because they can be styled up or down. I will also be looking out for a few pullover sweaters that can be worn now or later.

  2. Tie Hem Sweater
  3. Stripe Color Block Cardigan from TopShop
  4. Lattice Back Sweater (check out the back..so cute!)

Boots and Booties

The half yearly sale is notorious for having all of the most popular fall boots around. There are always some good boot deals from Steve Madden and Sam Edelman. Styles I am looking out for are the short booties, black boots with buckles and maybe something for winter like Sorels. What are you looking for?

  1. Fileana Split Heel Bootie
  2. Over the Knee Boot
  3. Karinta Block Heel



Slip On Shoes

VANS, Adidas Stans, slides, and flats. Yes, my friends, there will be some good steals on it all I am sure. Last year I bought some VANS and have worn them to the core. It is time to re-stock the comfy shoe situation and the Nordstrom sale is when to do it. I think I am going to buy another pair of VANS and maybe the Adidas Superstars if they go on sale.

  1. Adidas Super Stars  and Stans On Sale for $60 Now
  2. VANS old School Sneakers in BLUSH!
  3. Halogen Ankle Wrap Flat

Designer handbags like Rebecca Minkoff always have a deep discount at the Nordstrom 2017 Anniversary Sale. This is the perfect time to buy an investment purse that will go with everything in the closet. I love a good crossbody bag, but you might like a saddle bag or a more structured purse. Either way, it’s a guarantee that at the half yearly sale, there will be a handbag style for everyone. Here are a few good deals that are going on now.

  1. BP Faux Leather Crossbody for only $29
  2. Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody for $149
  3. Madewell Paint Stripe Tote



Jackets and Coats

I scored last year in the jacket department and I have every intention of doing the same this year. I am looking for a jean jacket this anniversary sale. That is my goal. Other styles to look out for are leather jackets, military style coat, and long dusters.

  1. Ripped Denim Jacket
  2. Suede Moto Jacket comes in two colors
  3. Life Changer MOTO Jacket for only $66!




I always make sure to get some jewelry at the Nordstrom 2017 Anniversary Sale. Just something simple that will be a style staple for my wardrobe through the year. Kendra Scott usually has a few things on sale. But, if that isn’t your jam, no worries, here are some simple styles that I absolutely love.

  1. Madewell Angelflip Necklace
  2. Kendra Scott Filagree Earrings
  3. Madewell Hoop Earrings



Workout Gear at the Nordstrom 2017 Anniversary Sale

Last year Nordstrom had tons of Zella on sale and I lived in them. I mean actually lived. So, I am betting that their comfy workout pants will be on-sale yet again at an amazing price and I am going to purchase them before they sell-out. Last year was a close call. This is hands down my favorite workout wear brand.

  1. Zella Impulse Sports Bra for $31
  2. Zella High Waisted Crop Leggings
  3. CeCe High Waist Open Legg Legging
