TOP 20 Favorites Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

What I Bought at Nordstrom

It’s not too late to gain early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which starts tomorrow at 12:30pm EST (10:30am MST). You can sign up for a Nordstrom card here.

I flew into Denver for the sale, and have done nothing, but shop and shoot… to help you with the sale. There will literally be 100’s of pages of stuff to sift through when the sale goes live… so you are already saving yourself time by being here. Yay!!

I shopped in TWO Denver Nordstrom stores, both stores had different things, and there will be additional pieces online that I didn’t see in the stores. ALL of my picks are posted by category including home, plus-sizes, kids, jackets, boots, etc., here.

And if you want to browse the catalog first or get all the dates and details, you can find all of that information here. The VIDEO version of this with more detail is here.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites

#1 | Halogen Plaid Coat

This is a beauty! As I predicted in my catalog preview video here, this color combination is just gorgeous! If you get tired of black and gray in the winter months, consider a standout piece like this!!

#2 | L’Agence Blazer

This bold blue blazer will look good on almost any skin tone! I think you will also find this color surprisingly versatile… I LOVE the gold buttons. This is an investment piece. It WILL sell out.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a brown blazer with windowpane checked pants and black pumps

#3 | Nordstrom Signature Blazer

I’ve started adding more brown basics to my wardrobe last year and this year, I plan to continue adding even more standout shades like this brown blazer! It’s lightweight and perfect for layering, but cut large enough so you can easily layer it over a thin sweater. If you run hot, or live in a warmer climate, you will love the weight of this jacket.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a gray lightweight faux leather moto jacket by BLANKNYC

nordstrom anniversary sale top favorites featuring BLANKNYC soft faux leather jacket in blush

#4 | Gray BLANKNYC Moto Jacket

I LOVE how lightweight and effortless this BLANKNYC jacket is. It will be perfect if you live in a warmer climate like Texas, Florida or California. Grab the jacket in gray or blush.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a black moto jacket by Treasure & Bond

#5 | Treasure & Bond Moto Jacket

This jacket is SO cool and luxe looking… you will absolutely LOVE it!! Scoop this one up if you do not already have a black leather jacket. Also, grab the scarf by Sole Society.

nordstrom anniversary sale top favorites featuring All Saints pink moto jacket

#6 |  ALLSAINTS Moto Jacket

I’m not sure this picture does this jacket justice. It’s GORGEOUS!! I absolutely love the color too, but I already have one that is very similar to this color so I didn’t need this. If you don’t already have a blush tone leather jacket, and want a beautiful alternative to black, I think this is an awesome option.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a longline checked blazer by 1.State

nordstrom anniversary sale 2019 featuring checked pencil skirt and longline blazer by 1.State

#7 | 1.State Checked Blazer

This longline checked blazer by 1.State is SO cool and modern. The ruched, 3/4 sleeves and hemline give this classic print some modern updates. There is a matching pencil skirt you can grab if you work in an office (see above). The fit and length are wonderful.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a burgundy faux fur jacket by Frame

#8 | Frame Faux Fur Jacket

I mean… SO good! I love that it is a bit shorter which is great if you are petite. The color is unreal! This is another piece that will definitely sell out.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a white cable knit turtleneck sweater by Vince

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a white cable knit turtleneck sweater by Vince

#9 | Vince White Turtleneck Sweater

I am a huge fan of turtlenecks and I love how this Vince turtleneck will actually STAY UP. No floppy neck!! The cable knit gives the sweater some interesting texture and it’s actually thin enough that you can layer it under jackets and blazers.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a black cardigan by Vince

#10 | Vince Black Cardigan

I’m a huge fan of Vince knits because they are higher quality. This black cardigan is an ideal length and will go with everything this fall. If you want a softer color, see another option below.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a brown longline duster cardigan by Leith, high rise, flared jeans by Good American and Vince Camuto peep toe booties

Leigh Cardigan

This brown-ish red is such an interesting color and a softer alternative to black. It’s also quite long and dramatic. This might replace the very popular Leith circle cardigan! It’s GOOD.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring vince camuto blouse with grommetsNordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring vince camuto blouse with grommets

#11 | Blouse with Grommets

So nice, I bought it twice! The grommets on this short-sleeve blouse by Vince Camuto give it a fresh and modern feel.  It’s an elevated basic that you will wear again and again.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a black puff sleeve tee by Something Navy

#12 | Puff Sleeve Tees by Something Navy

Remember the bodysuit by Something Navy that I pretty much wore with everything this spring??? Well, now it comes in a tee version, no annoying bodysuit. If you have narrow shoulders like me, this tee will be a heavy hitter NOW into fall… I grabbed both white and black.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a brown blazer with brown felt hat, white turtleneck by Tibi and dark wash skinny jeans by L'Agence

#13 | Felt Hat

How stinkin’ cute is that hat??? I LOVE the python detail and the color is just perfect…especially if you are adding more brown tones to your wardrobe. I’ll probably wear this hat now to music festivals here in Telluride and definitely into the fall season.

nordstrom anniversary sale top picks featuring dark wash ankle jeans by L'agence

nordstrom anniversary sale top picks featuring dark wash ankle jeans by L'agence

#14 | Dark Wash Ankle Jeans by L’Agence

I’ll probably want to wear these every single day. They are that flattering and versatile. They are this year’s Rag & Bone jeans. I’m not sure if you remember, but there was a pair over the last couple of years that I talked about loving so much, especially the length. These ankle jeans are the perfect length if you are petite. They fit like normal skinny jeans. If you are tall, they will fit like true ankle jeans and frame a pair of shoes beautifully.

#15 | Good American Flared Jeans

My butt looks lifted and that is ONLY because of these jeans. They are THAT good. Plus, they are flared! Yay for something different in the jean department. With Good American jeans, be sure to size down one size. I’m wearing a size 0. These are very soft and stretchy and feel more like yoga pants. They are also belly button high rise.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a black silky midi skirt, gray BLANKNYC moto jacket and black Vince Camuto short sleeve blouse

#16 | Silky Midi Skirt

This is such a gorgeous basic skirt! I love the conservative hemline for the office or special occasions, dinners. It’s great if you want to cover a bit more of your legs and knees. I paired it with that cool grommet blouse from above and the gray BLANKNYC moto jacket.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a brown floral print dress by Sam Edelman

#17 | Floral Dress by Sam Edelman

This floral print dress that I highlighted in the catalog does not disappoint! It’s just gorgeous. I really like the sophisticated print, the shoulder detail and the cinched waist. Add a waist belt for even more contrast and waist definition. A jacket layered over the dress would work to create a waist too!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring python print waterproof booties by Blondo

#18 | Blondo Python Waterproof Booties

Waterproof and super cool!! These are perfect for those of you living in places where you get copious amounts of rain, sleet, snow, etc. I love the python print and the edgy u-shaped side cutouts. The cool gray jeans are by Topshop. Size UP with Topshop jeans. I’m wearing 28 x 30, which is the perfect length for my 5’4″ frame.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought favorites featuring a black puff sleeve tee by Something Navy

#19 | Gorjana Necklaces

I am excited to see more jewelry online, but in store…I fell in love with the Gorjana necklaces. I bought three that I can mix and match and layer. The long pendant necklace you see pictured above, is adjustable so you can make sure it falls to the sweet spot, just under your bust.

charlotte tilbury mini eyeshadow palette

#20 | Charlotte Tilbury Mini Palette

The size of this palette is ideal for travel! I also love how pigmented Charlotte Tilbury’s eyeshadow is… The shimmer shades  aren’t as sparkly as they appear.

  1. Hi Erin

    You wore a Robert Lee Morris sculptural loop necklace in a recent how to wear a camo video I cannot locate this item (I tried your link ) do you know wedge I might find it
    Thank you also did you prefer the frame faux fur or the less expensive burgundy one from Nordstrom

    1. Looks like the necklace sold out. I bought it from Bloomingdales. I checked and it’s not there. Dillard’s also carries Robert Lee Morris, but not there either. I prefer the Frame jacket because of the color. It’s more of a cool red tone. The Sanctuary one has a lot more orange… more of a spicy or warm red.

  2. I prefer matte shadows- my eyes are a mess due to years of rubbing them because of allergies, so i really can’t wear shimmery shades. Do you know if charlotte tilbury, or anybody, makes palettes that are just matte? Also, i’m curious. When you purchase a new piece such as moto jacket, do you pass the older ones on to charity or friends, etc or do you just keep them all as a collection?

  3. What are the cat eye tortoise shell sunglasses you have picture with the Halogen Plaid Coat and the Camel Blazer? I did not see a link for those.

  4. For what its worth, the L’ageance BLazer in your post is the sAme one (in a different color) that Meghan Markle wore at Wimbledon this last weekend.

      1. Hi erin! I recenTly discovered you! ive been watching Your helpful youtube videos and have already fOund some great Basics at consignment shops locally. My first bigger purchase will probably be a moto jacket. I just cant decide on what color…do you have any tips oN that decision? I’m tall, thin, have silver long hair, in my late 40’s. I dont want to look like a biker chick. Honey brown is what im drawn to but that pHOTo oF you above in the black moto jacket with the scarf is just stunniNg! Cant decide. BUt i know i want real leAther. Thank you, heidi.

  5. I cannot locate the coral coloured North Face rain/hiking jacket any where on you blog or the Nordstrom website. Any tips?

  6. Hi there! You truly inspired me to get my Nordstrom order IN! I ordered that pink soft ruffle jacket (cuuuuute!), multirow choker and initial necklace. I can’t wait to get them! You and I have similar style in my opinion. I own some items so similar to the ones on your shipping list. BTW, I loved the way you styled your 10 outfits. AND love your channel! Look forward to seeing more from you!

    1. It may be a glitch with my phone, but none of your links are connecting me to nordstrom.

  7. Hi Erin! I can’t locate the basics checklist. Could you resend, please. Love your videos & blogs! You do an amazing job. Thanks.

  8. Have you tried the Vince Camuto jumper on yet? I am long waisted and afraid it won’t fit correctly

    1. The red jumpsuit? Not yet. I ordered a 6P, but who knows how long or short it runs. I’ll keep you posted. Erin xo

  9. Hi Erin, Every time I click on confirm card to try and place item in my shopping cart, I get and error message. I have tried multiple times through your website and entering the site on my own:(

    1. Nordstrom had a TON of technical issues this morning, but it should be cleared up now…

  10. Yeah, Erin! Great choices! Hopefully I placed all of this order through your link. Seemed a little confusing when I left your picks and tried to get to just the full sale site. The embedded link didn’t work like I expected it to. But… I’ve never placed this big an order before and am trying to calm myself down knowing that Nordstrom is so good about returns. I order multiple choices of black “rain” coats in multiple sizes in order to get it right. When with North Face choices, black t’s and sweaters, the Nike sneakers, zella hoodie. Hoping to do a black and red travel scheme.

    1. Morning, Kathy! If you clicked on my link (any of them) I should still get credit.
      Sounds like you picked some good ones…
      Is there anything you think I need to add to my picks??
      Thanks so much!
      Erin xo

    2. What a mess! I managed to get the Stuart Weitzman booties I wanted at 3am but unfortunately was too tired to continue. Around 9am est I put a bunch of other items in my cart including the Alice & Olivia velvet jacket but due to the site being down it’s now sold out in my size. Very disappointed people on their Instagram account. First time doing their sale online and I can’t believe how horribly they handled this sale. Last year I stumbled onto the sale at the mall and got the Tory Burch boots you choose among other items so was eager to try online. Now I don’t even want the items not sold out.

      1. You are SO right. It was a freakin mess. I was very disappointed too. I was so focused on ‘my picks’ for the site, that I didn’t order (or try to order until late morning) and literally it wouldn’t go through for hours. And, I’m still not sure it did cause I’m waiting on confirmation order. That said, I’m still excited! I can’t help it…
        I hope they learn from this snafu and improve on it next year (and certainly for public access day on the 21st). TFS. Sorry you had such a hard time. Erin xo

        1. Thanks Erin,

          I’m really happy I was able to get the Stuart Weitzman boots so I can’t really complain. I did go back and get a few more items including two more boots, the Franco Sarto Paivley in the burgundy and Steve Madden grand bootie although I’m thinking these might be too young. We shall see. Bloomingdale’s has been my go to store for 30 years and they’ve been having their own sale this week. No similar Alice & Olivia velvet jacket on their site but they have a beautiful Satin Blazer and a Cropped Bow Collar jacket at 25% off. They have a gorgeous Lupita Embroidered Halter Maxi dress that would look lovely on you.

          Hope you get your order and look forward to your haul videos.

          1. Thanks Lorrie! I love Bloomingdales, but I don’t like the shipping. I don’t order from there much anymore because I don’t want to print a return label. Ha. How silly is that?? But, I will definitely check out the sale. Thank you for the heads up! I got those SW boots too!
