If you tuned in to my IG stories the other day you may remember me talking about how this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale looks a little different. A lot of the items are repeats of the years past and there aren’t as many total items in the sale this year. Also, some items are priced higher than I expected, so I’ll be sure to only include things that I think are good deals in my roundups. Also, I don’t want anyone to feel like they have to buy something from this sale. I think it’s a good opportunity to get some good basics, but let’s be honest, we’re all not going anywhere for a while so there’s no need to get crazy and buy 16 pairs of boots. After I did my initial scan of the preview available on the website, these are the items that I think would be great buys.
UGG Fluffette Slipper – this is going to sound funny, but with months of quarantine under my belt I have become somewhat of an expert on house slippers and one thing that I’ve realized is that not all house slippers are created equal. I’ve purchased some cheaper ones that literally fall apart after two weeks or they become deformed. I have been really impressed with the longevity of any Ugg brand shoes that I’ve had in the past and I plan on purchasing these Ugg house slippers during the sale.
Nordstrom Bliss Plush Throw – Is there anything better than laying on the couch watching TV with a cozy throw blanket? These plush blankets are in the sale every year and they are super soft and plush. They would also make great gifts to stock up on while they are on sale.
All Saints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket – I’ve purchased several leather and faux leather jackets from the sale for years and I’ve been most impressed with the All Saints Balfern leather jacket. I loved it so much last year that I purchased it in three different colors. Sure, there are cheaper options but if you’re looking for a very well made and stylish leather jacket that will last years, this is a great one.
Giraffe At Home Chenille Robe – Since we’re in a time period where it’s all about being comfy and at-home, there’s nothing better than a big fluffy robe. Sometimes I will catch myself wearing my robe for several hours after getting out of the shower. I have friends that wear their robes all day, almost like a house coat 😛 I have this robe on my wishlist and I think it’s a really good quality robe that will hold up and last a long time.
Zella All Day Oversize T-Shirt – I don’t know about you, but I pretty much live in oversized tees. I am also very picky about my lounging tees – I don’t want them to be too tight, I prefer v-necks, and slits on the sides are a bonus. This Zella Oversized T-Shirt checks all of the boxes and I seriously plan on getting a few since I wear these so much 😛
Adidas Swift Run Sneaker – I have a pair of these in grey from last year’s sale and I have worn them so many times, both casually and actually on walks. I plan on getting the black pair this year to wear with leggings, nike shorts, and other loungewear. Just a heads up these run big in my opinion, so you may want to size down.
Apple Watch® Wrapped Silicone Bracelet Strap – I wear my Apple Watch every single day and my current band is looking rough. It’s stained, has sunless tanner spots on it, and generally is hanging on for dear life. I love how sporty but cute this Michelle Apple Watch band is and I also love how it has the appearance of having links, but they are silicone.
GUCCI 55mm Gradient Cat Eye Sunglasses – I have these sunglasses and they are by far my favorite classic everyday sunglasses that I own. If you are looking for a pair of elevated basic black sunglasses, these are definitely a good buy and Gucci sunglasses typically never go on sale. These will definitely sell out quick so put them on your wishlist if you know you want them.
Nordstrom 2ct tw Cubic Zirconia Earrings – I buy these earrings EVERY single year and I have for about 4 years straight. I love the look of these CZ earrings and you don’t have to worry about losing them, misplacing them, someone stealing them, etc. I have almost all of the available sizes in both silver and gold. I cannot recommend these enough and they are usually a highly recommended item by several people every year.
Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Tote – I’ve talked about this tote for several years as one of my best kept travel secrets – it’s genius really. You start out your trip with the bag zipped up and as you travel and accumulate items, you can unzip it and BOOM you have immediate extra storage. I have two of these bags and they are always with me when we go to Europe or anywhere for long periods of time.
GHD Curve® Classic 1 1/4-Inch Curl Iron – this has been my go-to curling iron for a year now ever since my hairstylist used it on my hair when I had extensions. The GHD soft curl is made to do exactly what it says, give you soft curls with no lines, less damage, and a softer appearance because of the silicone barrel. This is the exact size that I use and this is another item that hardly ever goes on sale.
Slip Pure Silk Queen Pillowcase Duo – silk pillowcases are one item that I would take to a deserted island if I had to choose just a few things. I truly cannot live without my silk pillowcase and I mildly panic if I am ever traveling and realize that I forgot to pack one. I have tried several brands and always go back to the Slip brand because they are well made, hold up over time, and just feel a lot nicer than others that I’ve tried.
