Nordstrom Sale: The Best Activewear #dressingroomselfies

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Ok, friends – here’s my workout edit for the Nordstrom Sale! More sale goodies here for you, in the form of active wear. Coming to you from Arkansas this time while visiting family, so I had to do a little ordering (in the Phoenix airport between flights, no less) online and recruited my mom to photograph since she didn’t have full length mirror (thanks, Mom!)

Thoughts: There are some good finds y’all.

You can find all of The Mom Edit’s 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks  – not just activewear – organized by category (shoes, bags, coats, etc.) by clicking on that link.

-This is the time to buy leggings for now and for the fall. The prices on some of these are insanely good. Zella are great and such a great price point and the Alo and Beyond Yoga are rarely, if ever, part of a sale this good.

-Get a cool jacket (like this mesh one or this structured one) or a great active wear sweater to easily take you from running errands to the gym.

Nordstrom Sale: Great Jackets for Street to Gym

nordstrom anniversary saleZella Max Bomber Jacket (S)  – This mesh jacket is so good. Not only is it great for workout wear but this will be a go-to piece to throw over a tank with any outfit. My mom has to stay out of the sun and she loves this jacket to keep her covered but cool because of the mesh.

Beyond Yoga Mesh Inset Leggings (S) – Beyond Yoga makes my absolute favorite leggings. They are so insanely soft (the ones that are heathered like these). They run true to size and even though they’re soft they are substantial for working out and hold you in.

The North Face Neo Knit Jacket (s) – This jacket is insanely cool. The structure and futuristic vibe are rad, but it’s also comfy. It has a great stretch but holds it’s structure. It’s long enough to cover your booty in leggings. It’s pretty perfect. TTS.

Reebok Dance Mesh Leggings (s) – These are super cool and a great price point. They aren’t high waisted though and they aren’t as quality as the other leggings I tried, but for the price? Great and the moto pattern is really cool.

Zella Cherish Wrap Cardigan (s) – Sold out! Major ugh. This is so good. It’s soft and the length of the wrap in front is perfect. And…thumbholes. I’m pretty sure this will come back in stock when the public sale starts, so we’ll keep an eye on it! Follow me on IG (@elletrain) and I’ll be sure to post it if it does.

Reebok Dance Mesh Leggings (s) – These are super cool and a great price point. They aren’t high waisted though and they aren’t as quality as the other leggings I tried, but for the price? Great and the moto pattern is really cool.

My mom is totally stealing this cardigan from me! She travels a lot and says it’ll be the best for travel. Gah, come back in stock!

Nordstrom Sale: Best Sweatshirts & Sweaters

Reebok Favorite Oversize Crew Sweatshirt (s) – This is a great sweatshirt and a perfect top layer for workout wear. It’s soft and Iove the side slits. It comes in a pink as well. Definitely oversized.

Zella Turning Point High Waist Crop Leggings (S) – These are super cute and well made. They are a little less soft because of all the cool detail, but they fit well and have good structure.
nordstrom anniversary sale north faceThe North Face Hooded Fleece Pullover (S) – This is so soft and cozy and lovely. It’s a little tough to pull on and I might actually size up for maximum coziness, but then again that might look overwhelming on my short self. Very warm. LOVE the hood/collar.

Climawear Front Runner High Waist Leggings (S) – When I pulled these out of the package I was worried…they looked like tights instead of leggings. But I put them on and was pleasantly surprised at how substantial they were. You still probably want a longer top with these because the seams are different than a typical crotch seam, but they were so super comfy. I’d wear these more as loungewear. Love the color.

nordstrom anniversary sale adidas

Adidas Originals Trefoil Hoodie (s) – I wanted to add a pop of color into this try-on sesh and this does it. Love the quality of the sweatshirt and the hood/collar shape. Cozy and bright and fun. It’s definitely warm and it was in the 90’s here when I tried all these on, hence the over-it face. It doesn’t reflect the quality of this hoodie. Ha.

Alo Elevate Leggings (s) – This is such a quality active wear brand. Love Alo. These are great leggings with cool details (more below). They’re a tiny bit long as are most full length leggings on me, but they’re substantial and quality.

Zella Don’t Sweat It Sweater (s) – Dang it. Almost sold out. It’s a great piece to throw on over your workout wear. I might size up to a Medium if they come back in stock (please!) just to get a little more length. It looks cottony but it’s actually poly, rayon and spandex so it has a different feel but the fabric seems great for active wear and has less drape than a cotton sweater would. I like it. I’m having trouble explaining, but this is another one I really hope they restock and one of the pieces I’m considering keeping.

Alo Elevate Leggings (s) – This is such a quality active wear brand. Love Alo. These are great leggings with cool details. They’re a tiny bit long as are most full length leggings on me, but they’re substantial and quality.

Nordstrom Sale: Tanks & Tees

nordstrom saleAdidas Trefoil Logo Relaxed Fit Tank (s) – Cute urban style on this tank, but it’s definitely big. I’d size down I think but I like the length.

Zella Cece High Waist Open Knee Cutout Leggings (s) – These I love. Considering a keep on these. You do have to place the cutouts at first, but then they stay put. They’re just a unique legging and a quality pair at that. Love!

Beyond Yoga Space-Dye Camisole with Shelf Bra (s) – I don’t typically wear all in one tanks for workout, but this one was really quality. Love it. Very flattering and a cute back. They shelf bra is lightly padded. It’s the soft heathered fabric I love from Beyond Yoga, too. A great buy right now but pretty pricey after the sale for a yoga top, IMO.

Zella Glam High Waist Crop Leggings (s) – I love these. Another on the keeping list. I love a crop legging for right now in the heat and for spring and early fall, too. These are super cute with the mesh detail and again are such quality for the price. Loving Zella.

Zella Cut Both Ways Performance Tank (s) This tank is great. It has a bit of mesh detail on the sides that I love. It’s super soft, too.

Zella Knock Out High Waist Leggings (s) –  Yeah, so I tried to add some color variation by ordering these pink leggings. They’re super cute, but um, not so much with my skintone. If you have a darker skintone they’d be gorgeous. Also, the undies line is killing me here, but obviously had to do it for try-ons. These come in black and I’d be all over that choice. LOVE the details and mesh on these. Just, the color…but I do love this color combo here. I think I should’ve tried the pink top on with the burgundy leggings though.

Beyond Yoga Sports Bra (s) – This was my favorite bra I tried out…so so comfy and yet held the girls well. I love the back of it. The cups are lined but not overly padded. This would be a bra I would wear for lounging, too, and not just for yoga or Barre3. Medium impact support.

(accidental power ranger outfit)

Zella Top Speed Tee (s) – This is a rad top. It’s just not me. But how cool is that detail and mesh? I think in black I would have had a hard time sending it back. It’s stretchy and substantial for a tee with so much mesh. But yeah, I looked like the pink Power Ranger in this for sure. Hahahaha.

Zella Knock Out High Waist Leggings (s) –  Yeah, so I tried to add some color variation by ordering these pink leggings. They’re super cute, but um, not so much with my skintone. If you have a darker skintone they’d be gorgeous. These come in black and I’d be all over that choice. LOVE the details and mesh on these. Just, the color…


nordstrom anniversary saleZella Cut Both Ways Performance Tank (s) This tank is great. It has a bit of mesh detail on the sides that I love. It’s super soft, too.

 Zella Live-In High Waist Leggings (s)  – These get so many great reviews and I now see why. They’re a great legging at a great price, especially right now. I still love my Beyond Yoga leggings but these are a solid close second. This burgundy I love and should’ve tried them with the pink top.
cute workout wearClimawear Perf Perfection Singlet (S)  – I’m not a runner so I don’t typically try out singlets but this one is so cool. I wanted to check it out because I love that high neckline. It’s a quality piece.

Reebok Lux Bold Speedwick Leggings (S) – These are comfy, but thinner and less forgiving. They do have antimicrobial fabric and a great price point, but while I like the print the looser fabric and lower rise just don’t do it for me.


Zella Mesh Inset Training Tee (s) – I’m typically drawn to tanks for working out, but this tee is a good find.

Beyond Yoga Stripe High Waist Leggings (s) – This is another thinner legging but they still hold you in well. They aren’t as heavy duty as my favorite Beyond Yoga leggings, but they’d be great for yoga and for loungewear/athleisure. SO super soft and comfy.


Zella Impulse Sports Bra (s) – LOVE this bra. It was super supportive and quality. It has seams on front that show through more fitted tops a bit though (you can see it above in the burgundy tee).

Zella Layer Me Pullover (sold out!) (s) – I think this is sold out because it looked sooo good online. It’s still cute in person but it fits somewhat oddly. The shoulders felt like they might fall off on me and it’s too long in the torso. If you’re taller than 5’4″ or have a long torso you might love it! The shape of the hemline is so good and I love how it shows off a cool bra.

Zella Autumn High Waist Moto Ankle Leggings (s) – These I love. Great quality and great fit. The color is simply gorgeous. I’m contemplating these as keepers, too. I’ve been wanting moto leggings and these are a great pair. I’d wear them for everyday with boots and a gray sweater, too.

  1. Christy Hartman on

    I’m glad you did this post. I’m was curious about a lot of these pieces.
    But I gotta say, I’m disappointed in the sale overall. I have a ton of things on my Nordstrom wish (and a gift card burning a hole in my pocket) list but NONE of them are part of the sale. Am I the only one who is underwhelmed by the sale this year?

    • Yeah, I was a little disappointed by the shoe selection this year. I went in today and, while I did walk away with a pair I’m really excited about, they were the only thing on sale I liked! Usually there are more fun flats and boots but this year the choices just didn’t do much for me. Maybe there’s more online?

  2. That last pic of you in the Zella in green…that color green looks so good on you!! Such a unique shade…love this round up

  3. I tried the Zella Glam cropped legging, wanted to love it but I found the mesh too itchy 🙁 So I think I’m staying away from mesh Zella pieces from now on. I ordered that Beyond Yoga tank because I looove their cottony heathered fabric and the convenience of all-in-one workout tanks (I wear a 32A bra, sports bras often feel like overkill but I do need a little bit of support).

    • Thank you for the feedback! I just ordered the Zella glams….but they haven’t come in yet. You would’ve saved me some time shopping…
