I’ve had a chance to peruse some of this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale offerings, both in person and online. My approach is not to focus on what’s “New And Now,” but rather look for pieces that will have some staying power, and add long-term value to a wardrobe.
Here are my top “First Round Draft Picks.” I’ve also updated my SHOP page with some additional items, and will continue to update periodically as I get deeper into the sale.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks (First Round)
Just a reminder, some pieces do sell out quickly, but may either be returned or restocked during the course of the sale. If you see something you like but it’s sold out in your preferred color or size, just bookmark it and keep checking back.
Wear It Now
Though the sale includes mostly Fall merchandise, I’ve spotted a few pieces that can slot right into your Summer wardrobe.
An easy, breezy dress for hot summer days. Machine washable too!
More “Wear It Now” Options…
Saw a lot of really nice jackets included in the sale!
Spendy but stunning. This (very) lightweight lambskin jacket is a beautiful honey color. (Not quite as orange as it looks online.) The description says that it runs large, but my usual size Small was a good fit when I tried on in the store. Plus size option. It’s in my shopping cart, may have to pull the trigger…
There are a lot of moto jackets included in the sale. This one is faux leather, and that deep burgundy is versatile alternative to black. I like the clean look, not a lot of extraneous hardware, and what there is, is subtle.
More Statement Jackets…
While they may not be as flashy, these are the pieces that can be the backbone of a wardrobe, and prevent those “nothing to wear” days…
It may be tough to think about sweaters at the moment, but a simple, v-neck cashmere sweater is always a great piece to have on hand once the weather cools down. This one is budget-friendly, and available in several colors. Plus-size option too!
I tried this jacket in the yellow, but it wasn’t the right yellow for me. I was impressed with the fabric and fit though. In black or navy, this could be wardrobe workhorse. (And if it suits your coloring, the royal blue could be a nice accent piece.)
A sleek, weatherproof ankle boot that will dress up or down. Also available in Taupe and Herb (dark sage green) suede.

Underneath It All…
And I always pick up a bottle of the Delicates Fabric Wash during the sale. I use this for all of my lingerie and delicates, including silk tops.
