I’m not going to lie, having 4 kids and it being summer has me a little out of it. When someone asked me if I was going to be posting a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wish list this year I was like “what sale?” “Oh yeah THE sale I cover every year… uhhh when does it start?” But then I started checking it out (LOVE that they added the preview that everyone can look at this year) and am finding so much good stuff that like yeah duh I had to write a post on it. When the sale starts depends on your status, you can check your status and when you can start shopping here. What differentiates this sale from other sales is that a lot of the stuff is brand new to the site and it’s discounted first and then will go up in price later if it doesn’t sell out. Early access begins as early as August 4th, all access is August 19th, and the sale ends August 30th, and on all days it starts at 9:30 am EST. You can also learn more about Insider benefits and the Nordstrom Credit Card here!
Okay so here is what is on my wishlist as well as some things I’m not planning to buy for whatever reason but I think are great deals. I’m breaking it down by category and have links to everything that will show you the preview site and will be shoppable whenever you can shop the sale. Enjoy and let me know if there is anything I should add to this or things that you are looking for!
Every year there is one thing I’m absolutely certain to buy in the Nordstrom Sale. And that thing is Zella leggings. They are my absolute favorite and an awesome price during the sale so I can never resist a new pair. The Live In High Waist leggings are some of my absolute favorites, and I am really into the Purple Moon color since I don’t have it yet, and I also love the crops. One of the staples of the Nordstrom Sale every year is the Barefoot Dreams cardigan so I’m sure that will sell out quickly again. I’m always a sucker for Adidas sweatshirts and for this price I’m def grabbing one and a set of comfy jammies.
One thing I was surprised and excited to see included in the sale, but also kind of mad because I just bought them regular price, is the On Cloud tennis shoes. My husband and I both bought a pair recently (really just because they are super popular and look cool) but we both love them. These will prob sell out quickly so if you want them grab them!
And of course jewelry. The first jewelry that grabbed my eye is these Crystal Huggie Hoop Earrings. I just bought a pair of Kendra Scott huggie earrings recently that I’m obsessed with so I probably won’t actually order these unless I decide I really need some gold ones. Okay that’s probably happening. There are several other huggies aka small hoop earrings included in the sale but these are the best price.
There’s lots of cute clothes so I won’t list them all here. I’m still figuring out what I’ll actually get. Topping my list is this Rachel Parcell dress for our fall pictures.
I always struggle with sharing picks here because everyone’s husbands are so different. Like mine has about 3 brands he will wear and pretty much only dresses extremely preppy. A lot of peoples husbands aren’t like that at all. But for my husband pretty much anything Peter Millar, like these shorts or this polo,will be a hit. He also loves anything with the Patagonia Better Sweater material and I love the color of this pullover! Your man will love you if you buy him this deodorant, and there are also men On Coud’s that are going to make my husband mad he already bought some.
I’m sure some of y’all could guess that kids is the very fist section I looked through. Can’t stop won’t stop with my kids clothes addiction. One of the big things I always stock up on during this sale is kids shoes. My Sperry duck boots are my favorite winter rain boots so I’m pretty stocked that they have kids ones at an awesome price in the sale this year! I always get my kids a new pair of Adidas sneakers during the sale because we love them – this year I will probably not get Maddie Grace any since she has to wear all white sneakers to school but for Tripp I definitely will! I also love these shimmery UGG boots and leopard Hunter boots.
Another thing I always buy for my kids in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Patagonia jackets! I’m planning to get my boys the Furry Friends Zip Hoodie (baby one here) but unfortunately I’m not loving the girls ones this year. They also have it in white but my kids are too messy for that. I’ll also be getting classics like Vineyard Vines polos for the boys, I think this button up is perfect for fall pictures, and love these sweet girl jammies.
As far as baby gear goes I’m not seeing a lot that I think is a great deal. The Nuna Convertible Carseat is a cult classic for a lot of moms I know and is a great deal during the sale so if you’ve been waiting on that this is the time to get it! Also the Stokke Ride On Luggage is something I always eye when we travel! We aren’t going anywhere soon so I’m not ordering but if you are definitely check them out, I think my kids would be obsessed.
My favorite thing about the home section of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finding things that I can use as gifts throughout the year. I always stock up on Voluspa candles, or things like this gorgeous serving board, and then if I’m headed to a birthday dinner or something comes up I always have a nice gift on hand that didn’t cost a fortune.
Ahhh there’s so much good beauty stuff. Oribe is one of my favorite haircare splurges and they always have a good kit in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This set is 2 of my favorites and it’s def worth the price tag. It lasts forever too! I’ve also always wanted to try Aveda Shampure and this set that has full size shampoo and conditioners, as well as a paddle brush and hand cream, is a really great deal..
