The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally live (click here to shop)! I’m one of those crazy people that stayed up until midnight to shop the sale as soon as it dropped. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep last night!

Some of these items I already featured in my top picks post. Although the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog is 80 pages long, there are usually several thousand items included in the sale (over 2,500 in the women’s section alone)! To save you some time, I will be doing several posts featuring different categories and the best finds from each category. Can you tell how much I love the sale?

To start, here are the items I purchased during this year’s sale! I will also be posting a try-on/review video on my YouTube channel, so stay tuned!


There were so many cute shoes this year! I definitely splurged the most in this category! I was bummed last year when I didn’t stock up on boots. Thankfully, I found a few that were similar to ones I liked last year. Also – how cute are these mules?!


If there’s one piece of clothing I’m wearing all the time in the fall/winter, it’s a sweater! Seattle can be cold and dreary 9 months out of the year, so I practically live in warm, cozy clothes. I fell in love with the block sweater when I saw it in the catalog! I ended up getting it in both colors (the tan and pink) because I couldn’t decide. The best part about the sale is you could always buy things, try them on in the comfort of your home, and return what you don’t want! How cute is this one with the yellow and grey stripes??


I had a hard time finding tops I loved in the catalog. Luckily there were plenty more to find now that the sale is live! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to stock up on essentials (like basic tees or blouses for work). This is your opportunity to get high quality tops for the same price as items at Forever 21!


I wasn’t planning on getting a jacket this year (I have so many leather jackets), but this one with the hoodie was calling my name! I bought it in both the nude and the green because it’s super easy to return the things you don’t want. And it gives me the convenience of shopping in my PJs without stressing about what happens if I don’t love the stuff I got!


I recently stocked up on pants, so I didn’t buy a lot in this category. However I did find the cutest pair of moto leggings, and some adorable high-waisted trousers too!


I haven’t been wearing jewelry as much lately, but these were calling my name! I immediately spotted them in the catalog and I couldn’t resist buying them! I also found the cutest pair from Baublebar (I bought them in the pink color) that are so glam!

What are your faves?

Now that I’ve shopped till I dropped (literally), what are some of your faves from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year? Is there anything I missed that I need to buy before it’s sold out?
