While you can’t shop — yet — you can browse, drool and add things on preview into your wish list, and then buy when your access level comes up later this month.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: 5 Cute, Casual Looks We’re Coveting
Myself? I’ve been focused mainly on the jeans. I was excited to see some MOTHER denim in the sale (including the style I’ve referred to in the past as my ‘pajama jeans’), and — new this year — a few styles from Re/Done. The Levi’s selection is boring, but for 501 fans, this pair of FRAME jeans has a decidedly old Levi’s vibe, and definitely make my heart beat fast.
We have so much more to come, but for now, just to give you a quick idea of where my head is, I pulled together five seriously cute fall looks from the #NSale pieces I’m currently eyeing up.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: Outfit Idea 1
This is easily my favorite look of the bunch. The jeans are my longtime favs, rag & bone Nina skinnies in a really pretty wash (fit is TTS, but sometimes I do size up), and the sneakers (p448 Thea sneakers) are the most comfortable sneaks I’ve ever worn. The star of the show, however, is that insanely gorgeous Reiss coat. I’m worried it’ll be too long on me (tall girls have at it) but it’s SO good I might consider a visit to the tailor.

For the times I need to go out (and therefore change out of sweatpants)…this outfit. We’re talking an easy bodysuit, the slouchy FRAME jeans I mentioned above, and some Jenni Kayne slides I’ve been dying over FOREVER.
(ps. Treasure & Bond has a more affordable pair of slides that are similar…)

I’m always tempted to buy rainboots…but they’re not nearly as comfortable as waterproof, all-weather boots. And I keep coming back to these Timberland’s. The color looks perfect, and I love how they can work with a black raincoat as well. The Clare V bag ties it all together.

I did get distracted from my denim search by all of the freaking gorgeous workout and loungewear in this sale. It is NOT to be missed. I’m obsessed with the muted colors of this Zella set, and mixing it with tone-on-tone pieces like the Nike hoodie and blush-colored Adidas makes the set feel really fresh. A welcome update from my all-black everything.
