It’s that time again. The annual Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here and getting into full swing. Access to the public will open up July 15th and run through July 31st. More on the details of the sale can be found here. But today it’s all about the shopping. Welcome to The Ultimate Midsize 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide!
As per usual, this guide is created with curves in mind. And the hero categories this year were surprising. A lot less shoes and SO many gorgeous bracelets. I’ve organized it by category below. I would also recommend adding anything you think you’ll want to your wishlist to make sure that if it does sell out, you’ll be notified if it comes back in stock. It’s a much easier way to make sure you’re getting your fave pieces. Happy shopping friends!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Dresses
While it may be mid-July, dresses are a year-round staple for me. They also happen to be the perfect transition piece between seasons if you live in the South. There are a lot of staple colors this year with a few fun colorful finds. But there are also several dresses that would be perfect for fall weddings or your next date night. I’m eyeing up the silk options for the top of my list.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Beauty
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a sucker for a good beauty product. Skincare is my jam. But I’m also falling back in love with makeup. Truthfully, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale offers some of the best steals for beauty products that rival Black Friday prices.
Whether you’re in the market for luxury hair or skincare or simply need a new curling iron, there are amazing brands with killer deals. I’m a big fan of T3 as well as Oribe and Silk. And seeing as I find myself perpetually losing my slip hair ties (the only ones I use), it’s the perfect time to restock.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Tops
If you follow me on the gram, you’ll know I’m a dress gal often. But after digging through pages of clothes, I was amazed and SO happy to find so many brands featuring tops that work for us curvy gals. I paid close attention to waist bands, straps, and ties.
I’m loving the simplicity of the first top as well as a few tops are either cropped or will tuck easily. I’ve added cardigans because they are such a great seasonal transition top. And a few pieces that give me Nantucket beach vibes.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: WELLNESS
It wouldn’t be a WSS midsize Nordstrom Anniversary guide without some activewear. Heavens knows I’m V picky about it and wash a ton of it. Personally, I’m quite content with my Amazon sports bras & Athleta leggings. But I’m always on the hunt for more running shoes and functional but cute layers. There’s also the athleisure look for the days when I want to wear something cozy but also want to look fire.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Comfies & Undergarments
I like to think of this section as a collection of things to give yourself but also make great gifts. And of course, there’s Spanx. Another life essential that is a steal during the anniversary sale. I snagged the shorts pajama set last year and it’s one of my most worn staples.
I’ve also sworn by UGG slippers for years. They were the thing that got me through long hours on set when my feet were dying. I knew I would get to go home and wear them. It’s the little things when you’re standing 14+ hours a day.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Jackets
Jackets always feel like a hit-or-miss part of the anniversary sale for me. But this year there are a few that felt unique and had the potential to get as much love as my unstructured blazer. The long vest, as well as the leather blazer, are something I don’t own anything like. Plus, I love a pink moment.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Bottoms
We know by now I am obsessed with my Spanx leather leggings. They are a curvy girl essential and a great sale every year. But I did happen upon some other sneaky pieces this year that I think will make our fall looks next level! Also, I do realize there’s quite a bit of leather in my guide this year – but I’m here for it.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Accessories
I have to say I wasn’t expecting to find so many cute pairs of sunnies this year. Or to see some of the best Beis luggage pieces in the sale. Alas, we are all about manifesting the best for our lives so I’ll happily embrace it. The one thing I always include, when it’s in the sale, is the wolf travel jewelry cases. They are a bit more luxury but well worth the money.
I’ve used the smaller square for the last few years but have my eye on the flatter piece to accommodate necklaces more easily. If you’re a ring person, I would definitely suggest the square as it’s a bit more geared towards that.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022: Best Shoes
I know you didn’t think that I would do an entire post without shoes. Come on now. We’re better friends than that. If you missed my most comfortable heels post, you’ll know I have a thing for 3 inches or higher. There weren’t nearly as many options here as in previous years. But there are a few I could easily fall in love with.
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE 2022: BEST Jewelry
Last but not least, if I could only shop from one section this year, this would be it. And seeing how you babes always ask about my jewelry with reels, this is your sneak peek at what I’ll be rocking in upcoming looks.
I’m usually not a bracelet gal but there are so many chic options. I also really feel like a regular watch is in my future. The ring choices are simple but sparkly – my vibe. I truly can’t get enough of all the pieces in this section of the guide. It just makes me so happy! Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, even if they are pretend, right?
If you’re shopping, I’d love to know what you’re eyeing up this year. Let me know in the comments below! And if you’re on the hunt for something, feel free to DM me. I love helping you babes find the best items. Until next time. Happy shopping friends! Xoxo, Savvy
