I’m doing a Nordstrom Sale post again this year, but a little different than the past years I’ve done it where I’ve done guides to the whole sale. I received access to what all is going to be in the sale a little early, but of course didn’t get around to looking at it until last minute. If you follow me on Instagram you know we’ve been budgeting and really cutting back on spending, so I’m not going to lie and say I’m buying a ton this year. In fact I’m not buying a lot at all – when going through the sale items I kept selected my top picks based on a few factors: what’s cute, what’s new, what our family needs going into fall, what’s going to sell out, and most importantly what is actually a good deal.
There are definitely plenty of good deals to be had in the sale, but there are other things that honestly are almost always marked down. 2 years ago I had to have this pair of boots that released in the Nordstrom Sale, and much to my dismay a few months later I found the exact same ones for way less than they were in the sale at Nordstrom Rack. Other sale items are new things that just aren’t impressing me. I still found plenty of stuff on my list to order though and think other people will still get good deals and value out of shopping the sale!
So here’s what I think are actually buy-worthy from the sale. I’m still breaking it down by category…
This one is different for me this year too because nothing that’s not wearable with a bump is on my radar. But there are still plenty of sale staples that if you’ve been eyeing, now is a good time to get. Like every year I get my favorite Zella high waist leggings during the anniversary sale. And because I tell everyone how Zella leggings are the best and my absolute favorites I get asked pretty regularly by friends and followers where they can get the best deals on them. And honestly the Nordstrom sale is always the best deal, but you will find them discounted randomly throughout the year and at Nordstrom rack as well. They also have maternity ones but last pregnancy I just wore the regular ones and kept the waistband rolled down.
It’s also a good time to buy jewelry like Kendra Scott earrings. But personally what I’m eyeing is a Barefoot Dreams cardigan (I still don’t own one!), this cute Tory Burch pearl ring (I love pearls) and earrings, and this bump friendly dress I fell in love with. I’ve also been looking for some cute, different shoes and these ones fit the bill! My friends with Tumi bags all love them and this one is a good deal in the sale, and the best eyelash growth serum is the best price you’re going to get on it!
I always look for cute stuff for the kids during the Nordstrom sale. I always am looking for shoes, jackets, etc. for them. Every year there is a lot from some of our favorite brands – like Tucker + Tate, Hunter, Patagonia, Nike, etc. There’s definitely a lot of good stuff included in the sale, but it’s taken some time to look at it all and try to decide what’s really a good deal or not. A few things that stood out to me are this Patagonia jacket, glitter Hunter rain bootsglitter Hunter rain boots, and Adidas boys sneakers. I was also pretty stoked to see this Noodle & Boo gift set which will make awesome gifts for my friends having babies soon! However, after looking through a lot of the baby gear I reached the conclusion there isn’t a lot of good deals there. I was also hoping for more cute clothes for Tripp. I do plan to get him a pair of our favorite boy pants, and some basic shirts. I did find this super cute fall dress for Millie, and Maddie Grace would love these sequin UGGs but I’m not buying them for her!
Tom gets just as excited as I do about the Nordstrom Sale. But what is he looking for every year? Work clothes and shoes. No joke. These Nordstrom Slacks are his favorite work pants so I’ll probably gram a couple new pairs for him, and then there were some nice golf shirts and this Barbour jacket that I love the color of!
Home is one area where I really can’t justify spending a lot this year. Except there is a plethora of amazing rugs and we desperately need a new dining room rug and I kind of fell in love with this one. I also really want this lazy susan (which would also make for a good photo backdrop) and these Voluspa candles make for great gifts and are a really good deal!
My ultimate conclusion? There are some great deals and some super cute new stuff dropping for the sale. I think it’s worth ordering the things you love so they don’t sell out and then if it arrives and you don’t love it Nordstrom offers free returns that are super easy to do through USPS (just schedule a package pickup and you don’t even have to leave your house)!
