OMG, y’all I am so excited for the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and have found tons of stellar things that I love! I typically find the Anni sale to be such a huge score for me in the shoe department, and this year is no different. I’m swooning over all the Tory Burch shoes in the preview and have already added these beautiful lug sole booties to my wish list! I’m also loving all the street sneaker options and had such a hard time picking one. Instead, I landed on three amazing pairs of street sneaks that I don’t think I can live without. My numero uno are these P448 Floral John Low Top Sneakers. While I have a pretty great sneaker collection already, I surprisingly have never given P448s a try — I can’t wait to finally snag a pair!
I’m also loving all of the blazers and jackets that are available in plus-size for this season. I think this blazer is such a timeless piece. I was thrilled to see that my Barbour jacket is also in the sale this year, and I definitely give it a 10 out of 10. I’m crushing on this Sam Edelman trench coat; I think it’s going to go perfectly with everything! Ooo ooo ooo…AND last but definitely not least are these black Good American jeans that have the perfect amount of distressing and are always a great fit for my curvaceous body!
Sneakers, Bags & Plus-Size Fashion: Kat’s 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview
In our predictions post, I mentioned wanting more sustainable options in the NSale and was happy to find EILEEN FISHER and Adidas options, but am a bit disappointed that there are no plus-size Levi’s or anything from Reformation (at least that has been added yet). On another note, I was stoked to see that this year’s Anni Sale has a great selection of plus-size PJs — I think it’s the most expansive collection they’ve had since I’ve been shopping the sale. I’m looking forward to a great slumber in a new set of PJs, and new slip Silk Pillowcases that will be on sale for such a steal — $120 for a set of two! I’m predicting they will be one of the first things to sell out during this year’s sale.
This year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale feels easier to shop than ever, and I’m hoping my wish list gives you some ideas to bookmark for later once you can shop the sale. You can add any of my top picks from this post to your own wish list (just make sure you stop back to this post before the sale goes live — I’ll have updates!) and you can find all the tea on the sale in general here! Also, be sure to check our guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which we’ll update as the sale continues. I can’t wait to share my at-home #DressingRoomSelfies with you all once the sale officially goes live, and am looking forward to all the great finds.
In addition to my wish list, I’ve rounded up plenty of favorite tops, jeans, loungewear, PJs, clean beauty, and all the shoes. I love everything on my wish list, and think the things I’ve picked truly speak to my style. I hope you can find some new forever pieces below!
1 / Nike Sportswear Icon Clash Colorblock Anorak: This anorak from Nike is totally my vibe! If you follow me on TikTok or IG, then you know I live for athletic wear, and this is an absolute must-have for me.
2 / BB Dakota Soft Skills Faux Shearling Coat: I’ve been on the hunt for a teddy coat forever, and I think this may be the one for me. I’m drooling over the Snow White color. I think it will be great going into the winter season.
3 / Madewell Balboa Wash The Oversized Jean Jacket: I am OBSESSED with this oversized jean jacket — especially since its a little longer than the typical jean jackets I’ve gravitated towards. I’d pair this with the BP. faux leather leggings and the Nike Air Max sneaks from my wish list above!
4 / Nordstrom Moonlight Dream Crop Pajamas: Nordstrom brought it this year with their plus size PJ options! I am loving all the PJ sets and am especially a fan of this light pink set.
5 / Sam Edelman Water Repellent Trench Coat: Is this trench coat not the most timeless thing ever?! Click through for a closer look at those oversized buttons. This will go with everything in my wardrobe and last for seasons to come.
6 / Madewell Stripes Leather Pouch Clutch: OMG, I am obsessed with this Madewell leather pouch!! They made this pattern into several different bag styles like a tote and crossbody. Personally, I’m a mini-bag and clutch kind of girl, and this one does the trick. I would pair this with these Madewell high-waisted jeans, a graphic tee, and Nike blazer low SE sneakers.
7 / Slip Pillowcase Duo Set: I personally think this slip pillowcase duo set will sell out super-fast! I absolutely swear by my slip pillowcase to keep my skin and hair looking flawless. I originally found mine on super sale, and while I love the tropical pattern I have, I want a white set that will match my bedding.
8 / Quay Sweet Dreams 51mm Square Sunglasses: I love Quay (pronounced ‘key‘) sunnies and these are such a great price. The ombre frames are just so cute!
9 / Nike Blazer Low SE Sneaker: I love this take on classic low top Nike sneakers, and this peach and orange colorway is GOOD. These sneaks will go so well with everything!
10 / P448 John Low Top Sneaker: I surprisingly have never tried P448 sneakers, and instantly needed to have these when I saw them in the preview. The floral pattern is so fun. I always love a shoe that adds that extra pop to an outfit.
11 / Tory Burch Leigh T-Logo Sneaker: I’m a sucker for a good pair of Tory Burch shoes and these sneakers have something whimsical about them. Tory Burch has a ton of great items in the, sale and these are the only things I’m eyeing up.
12 / Free People Free People Main Squeeze Hacci Sweater: Free People has the best sweaters I’ve found that fit my plus-size and curvaceous body! Even though FP technically doesn’t sell plus-sized clothes, their size L and XL sweaters and oversized tops have always fit me perfectly. ps. Their FP Beach line also fits me so well, too!
13 / Free People My Only Sunshine Sweater: Chunky knit sweater…need I say more!? This FP sweater comes in several other great colors, too!
14 / TREASURE & BOND Plaid Blazer: This blazer gives me all the posh boyfriend-blazer vibes, and I absolutely adore the pattern and the length. This will pair well with these Good American boss skinny pants the Tory Burch boots I’m seriously considering.
15 / BP. Faux Leather Leggings: I’ve been after a pair of faux leather leggings forever, and these are such a steal! I can’t wait to give them a try.
16 / Madewell Cali High Waist Demi Boot Jeans: These jeans give me all the That ’70s Show vibes. I’m not sure that these will work for me, but I’m willing to take one for the team and give them a go!
17 / Coach Trail Leather Crossbody Bag: This is my absolute favorite bag in the entire Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I love how small it is, and the design is just pure perfection. It will pair well with everything!
19 / EILEEN FISHER Lace Espadrille: I was bummed to see that there aren’t any plus-size EILEEN FISHER clothing options in the sale this year (yet), but do really love these espadrilles. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for some surprise plus-size sustainable options in the future!
20 / Nike Air Max 270 Premium Sneaker: These come in two amazing colors, and I’ve been going back-and-forth on whether I want the black and white pair, or the orange, peach and white pair. I love all things Nike, and when I saw my brother’s pair of Air Max 270s, I had a little envy. I will definitely be snagging a pair!
A Few Things I Have (& Love) In The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Vince Camuto high-rise leggings are my favorite leggings of ALL TIME! I am quite certain they’re the most-worn piece in my entire wardrobe and I can’t live without them. I wear these to work on the regular and, well…pretty much everywhere else. They have the perfect amount of compression, and the thick waistband holds everything in while also accentuating my waist. In this year’s Anniversary Sale, they’re available in three different color; I consider them a closet must-have! See me style them up multiple ways, right here.
I own nearly 10 pairs of GA jeans alone. They are just so good, and the fit is always perfect for me! The sale preview includes several pairs of black GA jeans, and they’re all super-cute. I personally have my eye on this black high-waisted pair.
Back when I started with TME, one of my first posts was a huge Barbour jacket haul, and I ended up finding so many amazing jackets by the brand. I love the style of Barbour jackets and think they are such timeless closet staples. ps. I am wearing my Vince Camuto leggings in this photo, too!
4. UGG Slippers
I am a sucker for a good pair of slides, and when UGG came out with their Cozette slide slippers…I was sold. I bought mine at full-price, and have to say I am a little jelly that they will now be on super sale! These slippers are great for lounging around the house or taking a quick walk to the mailbox. They come in four different colors, and I have a feeling that these will be another sale item that quickly sells out!
