Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

Nordstrom AnniversaryAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! The time has come for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but before I dive into what I am buying personally and some recommended items, I wanted to share a few thoughts with you, especially if this is your first time shopping the sale. :-)


1. This is my 3rd year shopping the sale, and while I'm excited because it truly has AMAZING SALE PRICES for brand new Fall items, I feel like in the past it was way too easy to get caught up in the excitement of it all and buy things that weren't really my style OR that fit my lifestyle as a stay at home/work at home mom.  

With that said, I'd definitely suggest shopping the sale with a list of TOP items you're shopping for, and don't stray too far unless you find something you absolutely LOVE or is a crazy steal. Last year for me, that was the GloPro Microneedling Tool, and I am still SO HAPPY with that purchase.

GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool Face and Eye Set

It is included in the Anniversary Sale again this year at $100 off and I can't recommend it enough after using it for the past year! 30's are REAL if ya know what I mean! ;-)


2. The people that work at Nordstrom are SUPER nice people, and to be honest, I used to be super intimidated to walk into the store and ask for help. It sounds so silly now! If you're interested in checking items out at your local store, don't be shy and set up an appt. I have yet to meet any associate that isn't an absolute gem!

This North Face fleece pullover has been a go-to, so the Thread and Supply pullover in the sale is a MUST for anyone looking to stay cozy in the Fall and Winter months. Along with the Zella Live In Leggings (aka essentials) you'll be set for comfort. :-)


3. Tomorrow we're headed out for a family staycation to beach house on Whidbey Island (follow along on Instagram stories!) so I'm personally just shopping the Nordy sale online and looking forward to some happy mail when we get home. For the sale, I'm focusing on fall and winter sweaters, denim, ankle boots, some coats, handbags, and workout gear like workout leggings, workout tanks and tennis shoes. :-)

This jacket here is almost identical to a major favorite jacket in this year's sale!! TTS


Here are a few items I currently have in my cart and some top picks! Fingers crossed my final picks will arrive in the mail quickly! :-)




I basically LIVE in cozy sweaters all Fall and Winter so I can't wait to stock up on them!! The prices are too good! THIS SWEATER is my absolute TOP pick!  I love it!!!!




Over the years I have found an appreciation for some well fitting denim, and have been able to drastically declutter my closet by investing in some jeans that really fit well. For me this means fitting my petite self and maintaining excellent shape retention. Basically, they stretch and are comfortable, but don't actually stretch out and get saggy.  I personally love AG, Rag and Bone, and Articles of Society.




Remember that most of these boots and shoes are available in multiple colors! 


See those tall black boots on the left, third row down? Having owned a pair by this brand before, I can say with confidence how comfortable they are! I'm getting that boot this year in the Rust Suede, which is such a stunning color! 

I'll continue to add to update this post, but for now these are my top picks!  Next I'm focusing on coats (THIS ONE IS IN MY CART!!), handbags (this Tory Burch bag has my eye), and jewelry (I was shocked at the price on this Michele watch)!






I can't wait to share more! The sale is GOOD this year and items are already selling out, crazy as that is!!


I hope this helps you navigate the sale a little better! I'll share more as the items I bought arrive in the mail, but in the meantime, don't stress it and HAVE FUN!!


From the beach!
