Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Picks

Yay y’all! I’m so excited that it’s finally here – NSALE Early Access for Nordstrom Cardholders is here! I’ve spent some time digging through everything on sale and picking the best of the best!

To get started, I wanted to pull out the first things that caught my attention and create a few easy fall-inspired outfits with them. I’ll also be making note of items I think will sell out first – the ones you’ll want to purchase ASAP. I have a pretty good idea of which ones they are based on previous years experience.

For this post, I’m putting together simple outfits with items that I LOVED and felt like you needed to know about ASAP. But stay tuned, I’ve got lots more coverage coming too! I hope to do a 6 items 3 ways like I did last year too as well as a few other easy ways to shop and help you sift through all the pages of on-sale product. So just keep checking back for more!

[UPDATE – 7/13 @6:00 PM] – What are the can’t miss CLOTHING/SHOES items that will probably sell out fast?

  1. Dreamers by Debut sweater in off white (wearing XS)
  2. Dreamers by Debut Cardigan (wearing XS) – I wore with lace-trim tank in outfit below (later in this post)
  3. Madewell utility jacket (going to include in tomorrow’s blog post)
  4. BP Stripe Pocket Tee (I got size XS) – you’ll see me styling this MULTIPLE ways in this post and future posts because it’s a great basic and fits very well
  5. BP Cardigan in cream – super cute, great price, and easy to put outfit together with, all around good purchase
  6. AG Jeans and/or Rag & Bone Jeans – they’re both amazing. I’m actually not sure if they’ll sell out but I think they’re both just great pairs of jeans and would highly recommend them.
  7. Vince Camuto Fileana Bootie (run TTS) 
  8. Vince Camuto Karina Peep Toe Bootie – runs TTS 
  9. Stuart Weitzman Elevated Boot (size down 1/2 size) 

NSALE Pick - olive sweater, vince flats

Dreamers by Debut sweater in Olive (wearing XS)| Price: $45 – marked down to $25.90
Gosh I can’t even explain how amazing this material is. Honestly, Dreamers is by far one of my absolute favorite brands for sweaters. They always have the best-feeling and even better fitting materials and cuts for sweaters. It’s no wonder their stuff sells through so fast every year during the sale. I highly recommend snatching this one up in every color while it’s still in stock! It’s a GREAT item! (here’s a picture of it untucked if you want to see that too!)

AG Jeans (Run TTS) | Price: $245 – marked down to $163.90
I’m still trying to decide if I want to keep these or not, but I really liked the wash on them and the distress. The fit is also great – I also love how AG Jeans fit!

Vince loafers (size down ENTIRE size)| Price: $250 – marked down to $164.90 
These loafers were LOVE at first sight. I mean, I don’t even feel like I need to explain why they’re a good investment because just LOOK at them. Am I the only one that feels this way? I think they’re beautiful. The color, the cut, everything. This shoe was just an all around WIN for me and I’m so happy to have them join my shoe team :) you’ll be seeing them a lot – just a heads up!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 5

BP Plaid Button-Up Shirt (wearing size XS) | Price: $49 – marked down to $31.90
This BP Plaid shirt comes in 3 different colors; I also go the black and white plaid print too. It’s a longer length (which is nice!) and super lightweight which is great for layering like I did here.

Caslon crew neck long sleeve tee | Price: $29 – marked down to $19
I’m a sucker for a good crewneck striped tee. If you don’t already have one, I’d grab yourself this one on sale for $19! NOTE – I can’t find this online yet! I’ll let you know when it goes live.

Rag & Bone 10 in. Ankle Skinny (run TTS)  | Price: $198 – marked down to $131.90

Vince Camuto Fileana Bootie (run TTS – color TAUPE) | Price: $149.95 – marked down to $99.90
I tried on all 4 mushroom/taupe/neutral-colored booties included in the sale and these were BY FAR my favorite pick as far as versatility and wearability for putting together outfits. If you’re looking for a go-to bootie for Fall, these are what you want!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 3

BP Lace Trim camisole (XS) | Price: $35 – marked down to $22.90
It’s a really thin material, but I actually REALLY love this tank. I got size XS and it fits pretty well – although it doesn’t have much stretch. If you’re unsure of which size to get, I would size up.

Dreamers by Debut Cardigan (wearing XS) | Price: $55 – marked down to $35
Heads up – this cardigan will FOR SURE sell out fast. This brand always sells out SUPER fast. I love how cozy this one is (it also comes in a mushroom color if you think that would match your Fall wardrobe better! I got both colors #noShame)

Madewell Jeans | Price: $135 – marked down to $89.90
These run TTS (I’m wearing size 25 for reference) and the wash is a little lighter. I like that they’re high-waisted too. For a lighter wash denim, I found them to be flattering.

Halogen ‘Corbin’ Slide Loafer (run TTS) | Price: $89.95 – marked down to $59.90
No joke, I got these in 3 colors because I love them so much. I have a feeling the leopard ones are going to sell out insanely fast online because they were already GONE in the store within a few hours (crazy!). Runs TTS.

nordstrom anniversary sale picks, gibson tie front sweater

Gibson Tie-Front Top (XS) | PRICE: $59 – marked down to $39.90
Love this top y’all. The fabric is incredibly soft and the fit is perfect. I loved it so much I got in all 3 colors – picked up the grey and black as well. It’s just such an easy throw-on-and-go piece and looks good with jeans, leggings, for going out, or just casual running around town.

Vince Camuto Karina Peep Toe Bootie – runs TTS | Price: $149.95 – marked down to $99.90

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 11

Woven Heart Cable Sweater | PRICE: $55 – marked down to $35
Wearing size XS here; it fits a little oversized but I think that’s a good thing in this case (YASS cozy fall sweaters with hot chocolate!). I’m pretty sure this sweater will sell out really fast, so snatch it if you want it!

Rag & Bone 10 in. Ankle Skinny – runs TTS | Price: $198 – marked down to $131.90

Vince Camuto Karina Peep Toe Bootie – runs TTS | Price: $149.95 – marked down to $99.90

nordstrom anniversary sale Trouve boat neck sweater, AG Jeans, halogen slides

Trouve boat neck sweater in grey (wearing XS) | Price: $69 – marked down to $45.90
Wearing size XS – love the neckline of this sweater. And it’s got a longer hem which is nice (not quite tunic-length though fyi). This sweater is a great find though and super versatile!

AG Jeans | Price: $245 – marked down to $163.90

Halogen ‘Corbin’ Slide Loafer| Price: $89.95 – marked down to $59.90

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 17

Madewell Rhyder Cardigan (wearing XS) | Price: $98 – marked down to $64.90
I’ve had this cardigan on my list for months now and was SO excited to see that it was included in the sale! And I’ve never seen it in this color – love it! It’s SO soft!!

Dreamers by Debut sweater (wearing XS)| Price: $45 – marked down to $25.90

Rag & Bone 10 in. Ankle Skinny – runs TTS | Price: $198 – marked down to $131.90

Stuart Weitzman Elevated Boot (size down 1/2 size) | Price: $798.00 – marked down to $499.90
I was SO surprised to see that these were on sale! But obviously really excited too! I have the SW Highlander boots (ones with the heels) and wear them all the time, but have been looking for a a flat (or low heel) alternative to wear when I want to dress more casual. These are perfect and so flattering on and SUCH a great deal!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks

BP Stripe Pocket Tee (wearing size XS) | Price: $29 – marked down to $18
I picked this tee up in white because I felt like that was the most versatile, but this comes in SEVERAL colors. The material is great (more on the cotton side and not much stretch), but it lays well if you know what I mean? With the right bra, it’s not see through if you’re worried about that. And for $18, it’s a great basic white v-neck tee!

Leith Olive Cardigan (wearing size XS) | Price: $79 – marked down to $52.90
I’m always game for an olive cardigan in Fall and this one is a very versatile shade of green. I’m going to work on styling it a few different ways for y’all, but I wanted to draw your attention to it as a great find first.

Vince Camuto Madolee OTK Boot (run TTS) | Price: $239.95 – marked down to $159.90
I picked these up because I loved the color and the fact that they were actually OVER the knee. I like the detailing around the trim too! And for $160, I think they’re a great Fall purchase and will be easy to style multiple ways!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 14

Halogen Drape/waterfall front cashmere vest | Price: $149 – marked down to $98
I’m a big believer in vests – and especially drape front ones. I know they can sometimes look a little dated or feel like they’re hard to style, but if you’re working with one that’s got a good cut to it and isn’t too long or too short, then it really comes in handy when putting together Fall looks. I love using it as the finishing touch on an otherwise super simple outfit. This one is cashmere, so it’s a great weight and super soft!

BP Stripe Pocket Tee (wearing size XS) | Price: $29 – marked down to $18
I’ve already styled this tee 2 different ways because it’s such a great throw on and “sits” really well on your frame. I highly suggest this one! It’s also really thin and lightweight which is good for layering but it’s not so thin to the point of being see through.

UGG Daley Boot (run TTS) | Price: $249.95 – marked down to $164.90

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 18

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 19

V-neck white tee (wearing size XS) | Price: $24 – marked down to $15.90

BP Cream cardigan (wearing size XS) | Price: $31.90 – marked down to $49

Rag & Bone 10 in. Ankle Skinny – runs TTS | Price: $131.90 – marked down to $198

UGG Daley Boot | Price: $249.95 – marked down to $164.90

NSALE cardigan, striped tee, jeans

Caslon short-sleeve stripe tee | Price: $25 – marked down to $17.90
This tee is part of the sale every year, and I’ll continue to recommend it year after year because it’s such a great basic. You can see how I styled it multiple ways in my 6 pieces 3 ways post from last year here!

BP Cream cardigan (wearing size XS) | Price: $49 – marked down to $31.90
Can’t get enough of this cardigan. I’m really looking forward to putting more looks together with it! I think it’s hands down one of the best finds of the sale! There are a few other neutral-colored cardigans included in the sale though that I need to sift through. For now, this one is my favorite of them all! (there’s a cashmere one I want to play around with and style too but ti’s shorter and has a different fit to it)

DL Jeans | Price: $178 – marked down to $99.90

Halogen ‘Corbin’ Slide Loafer | Price: $89.95 – marked down to $59.90

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 12

Chelsea 28 Navy Bell Sleeve Top (wearing size XS) | Price: $89 – marked down to $58.90
This picture really doesn’t do this top justice. It’s so cute in person, but I think my lighting was starting to get dim when I took this photo and so it’s hard to see the details. Anyway, it’s really cute and very flattering on. I think it would so cute with a pencil skirt for work too!

Paige Grey Denim (run TTS) | Price: $199 – marked down to $130
These ran TTS as far as I could tell and I think they’re a great fit! The only thing I would say about these is that the rise is on the lower side; I usually only buy high-waisted. But if you’re okay with that, then I think you’d like these!

nordstrom anniversary sale picks 13

Pleoine peplum sleeve top (wearing size XS) | Price: $65 – marked down to $42
I thought this was a great and easy throw-on top that’s also (obviously) very on trend right now. It’s a great transitional piece as well – as it’s not very heavy weight.

denim skirt, hermes belt, white blouse, marc fisher wedges summer outfit_0106

Halogen Long Vest (wearing size XS) | Price:$99 – marked down to $65
There was one similar like this in last year’s sale (that I featured in my snapchat round up) and it literally sold out in day 1 of early access. This one is a little different this year in that its got a lot more structure. I think it runs a little big, so I would for sure size down. I like that its got the menswear-inspired vibe to it!

Halogen ‘Corbin’ Slide Loafer | Price: $89.95 – marked down to $59.90
BP. Pocket Tee (wearing size XS) | Price: $29 – marked down to $18.90

denim skirt, hermes belt, white blouse, marc fisher wedges summer outfit_0107

Leith Bell Sleeve Sweater (wearing size XS) | Price: $59 – marked down to $38.90
I love the material of this sweater. I also got it in grey – not sure which color I’m going to keep yet but I think it’s a super cute fit!

Rag & Bone 10 in. Ankle Skinny – runs TTS | Price: $198 – marked down to $131.90

Vince Camuto Karina Peep Toe Bootie – runs TTS | Price: $149.95 – marked down to $99.90
Run TTS + such a great transitional bootie that you’ll without-a-doubt get great wear out of. If you don’t already have something similar, I would suggest getting these for those in-between months to wear with light sweaters and layers.
