Whew. Deep breaths people. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially started, which means I’m officially stressed. I’ve spent the past week scrolling through 80+ pages of sale items, filling up my shopping cart, and perfecting my wish lists; I’ve pretty much got the entire sale inventory memorized by heart now. So whether you’re waiting to shop or you’ve already started, here are some of my absolute favorite pieces from the sale.
A Chic Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Capsule Wardrobe With All The Fall Feels
Forget changing leaves and PSL season, nothing gets me more excited for fall than the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — there’s no better time to stock up on all the fall essentials and update your closet with the season’s latest trends. During last year’s sale, my focus was on purchasing an investment piece, the AllSaints Balfern Leather Jacket, to add to my forever closet.
This year, my focus is on refreshing and updating my fall closet by buying my three favorite fall wardrobe staples: boots (gimme all the lug sole Chelsea boots, please and thanks), jeans (destructed, straight-leg, high waist denim for life), and sweaters (oversized chunky knit pullovers and high-quality wool turtlenecks with modern cut-outs and asymmetrical hemlines).
Of course, those pieces are only the beginning, because this year, like every year, my wish list is bottomless, but my bank account isn’t. Keep reading to see all my favorite pieces on this year’s wish list and happy Anniversary Sale hunting, friends!
(Pssst….when you’re done here, be sure to head over our #NSale cheat sheet to see what the team has been trying and buying since the sale began. If you want to whole shebang of our coverage, check out our Nordstrom Anniversary Guide.)

1. FRAME ‘Le Original’ Jeans
I’m so excited about these FRAME jeans. They are exactly what I’m looking for in a pair of jeans: relaxed fit, destroyed details, vintage-inspired fade and figure-flattering.

2. Free People Jodie Floral Cotton Tunic
I LOVE this floral print tunic from Free People. I honestly can’t decide which color I like more — the pink or the black. The pink option is so fun and joy-inspiring for summer. If I had a vacation planned this summer, I’d definitely spring for the pink, but I’m leaning towards black because it’s so versatile and will look so good paired with some ripped jeans and strappy heeled sandals on date night.
3. PAIGE Raundi Cutout Wool-Blend Turtleneck
PAIGE’s best-selling Raundi Sweater is the perfect update on the classic turtleneck. With a relaxed fit and made from the coziest wool blend, it’s the perfect mix of style and comfort.

4. Good American Flowing Faux Wrap Bodysuit
This chic, satiny, faux-wrap bodysuit is a great addition to any wardrobe. Whether it’s the weekend or a workday, this versatile and polished top goes with everything: distressed high-rise jeans, to tailored trousers, and pencil skirts. The best part? It stays perfectly tucked in all day long.

5. Sam Edelman Wool Belted Coat
I’ve been wanting to update my outerwear closet with a belted wool wrap coat since last fall, so now is the perfect time to snatch up this affordable, cozy, and stylish coat to layer over my knitwear and jeans.

6. ALLSAINTS Lock Neck Wool Blend Sweater
It’s not a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale without investing in an AllSaints sweater. Last year, I bought the Ridley Funnel Neck Wool & Cashmere Sweater and this year I am obsessed with the Lock Roll Neck Wool Blend Sweater and all of its modern deets; like the asymmetrical hem and the raw front seam.
7. Good American The Feel Good Bodysuit
Super soft and comfortable, this flattering cotton bodysuit makes the perfect base layer and is easily a closet staple.
8. Madewell The Perfect Vintage Jean
You can’t beat Madewell when it comes to affordable and flattering denim. I’m loving these high-waisted, faded black, vintage-inspired jeans!

10. The North Face Cragmont Hooded Fleece Coat
I am absolutely OBSESSED with this stylish and comfortable fleece jacket from North Face. Its made from 100% recycled fleece, retro-inspired details, and has a longer, parka length. I love it so much I want it in all three colors!
11. Natori Bliss Perfection Underwire Contour Bra
Natori makes some of the best bras ever, and this is one of my favorites. I always pick one up whenever they go on sale. A wardrobe essential!

12. Quay Australia Gradient Cat Eye Sunglasses
I’m such a big fan of QUAY sunglasses. The affordable price point and chic styles are exactly what I look for in my sunglasses. I don’t trust myself with expensive sunnies because I have a reputation of losing them or sitting on them. So, QUAY it is.

13. Gorjana Cayne Crescent Plated Pendant Necklace
I’ve been such a huge fan of Gorjana’s boho-chic-inspired jewelry for years now! I am especially obsessed with this crescent necklace that comes in silver too.

14. Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Moisturizer
My inner Gollum comes out when it comes to my Kiehl’s moisturizer, so when I saw this giant refill on sale for under $50, I definitely might have whispered to myself “my precioussss” and added it to the cart. I’ve tried so many moisturizers/lotions for dry skin and this is by far the BEST.

15. P448 John Low Top Sneaker
I’ve heard so many good things about P448 sneakers from the TME gang that I just knew I had to get a pair when I saw they were included in the Anniversary Sale. Julieta calls these her favorite sneakers to travel in so they MUST be freaking good.

16. ALLSAINTS Donita Combat Boot
Missing out on these AllSaints combat boots during last year’s sale was one of my biggest regrets, so I was beyond stoked when I saw them back this year. Definitely one of my top picks.

17. Louise et Cie Sanji Platform Wedge Boot
These white Chelsea-inspired platform wedge booties by Louise Et Cie are one of my absolute favorite boot styles from the sale this year. I love the modern and minimal style and the sporty striped platform detail.

18. Tory Burch Chelsea Lug Bootie
Chelsea style + lug soles + Tory Burch = the perfect shoes. I’m STILL trying to decide between these and the Tory Burch Chelsea Lug booties, I love them both. I pretty much want all of the lug sole and Chelsea-style boots from this year’s sale. I am having the hardest time narrowing it down!

19. Zac Posen Yanni Sandal
Strappy statement sandals are trending hard this summer. The block heel makes these easy to wear and I LOVE that knotted detail on the front!
Hoping all your Nordstrom Sale dreams come true, xo
LOVE All the in depth research here Jess, thank you!
For the suggestion box …. I wish you would regularly have gen x and boomer POV on your blog. I’ve seen glimpses of your moms so I think you have some good candidates already. If they aren’t up for it then I’m sure it would be easy to find someone who is. You are always a mom no matter if your kids are babies, in college or out of the nest so we fit the theme and this reader would like to see more of your stylish modern content on faces and bodies we can relate to and doing things we do. Just a thought. Not looking for kooky aunt barb in her boho multi color caftans, funny shoes and spiky red hair or the 55 year old trying to dress like a sexed up divorcee either. Sadly that’s what is out there. Looking for a slightly older POV from someone who is similar to you guys that could regularly slide into some of your features.
You know that several of us are Gen X, right?
So many great pics! Thanks Jess!
