It’s that time again. The annual Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here and getting into full swing. The sale will open to everyone to shop on July 28th. But if you’re a member or influencer, you’ll have access soon! Ps. become a member is easy and helps you earn rewards on purchases. It’s also free!
Typically, my list for the sale is a bit more streamlined. However, this year I wanted to do an ultimate midsize Nordstrom Anniversary sale guide for all of us who are in the 8-12 range shopping. I’ve rounded up so many amazing deals. And it looks like they have added more so bookmark this page because I’ll update it. Don’t worry if it says sold out, things are constantly being added back in as they are returned/someone decides not to snag. Grab your wine and your CC friends. Let’s shop!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: 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. I’m loving the lighter mini and maxi dress vibes this year. But there are also several dresses that would be perfect for fall weddings or your next date night. I’m quite impressed with this years around up.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: 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 Tata Harper 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 2021: 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.
The black cami is actually a razorback which is perfect if like me you’re between sizes and find that certain items make you look wider by how they sit. A few tops are either cropped or will tuck easily. There’s also an open-back sweater that ties to pull in the waist. I’m obsessed.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: Best Activewear
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. That black sports bra and green jacket are calling my name friends!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: 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’ve 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. I’m also really loving the cardigan with a simple bralette many of the UK bloggers were rocking earlier this year. The grey one in the round-up is perfect for my fall wardrobe.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: Best Jackets
As a Floridian, I’m terrible at owning jackets. Living in Atlanta was a terrible shock to my body. But as things slowly return to normal and I start traveling again, my jacket wardrobe is in dire need of an update. Honestly, I would add pretty much all of these to my wardrobe in a heartbeat. But my eye is leaning heavily towards the middle row.
Plus, I love a waist tie when it’s available. I can’t imagine making a midsize Nordstrom Anniversary guide without options to highlight those curves. There are also several fabulous rain jackets and cropped jackets available!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: Best Bottoms
If there was ever a time to try Good American jeans, it’s now. And if you haven’t hopped on the Spanx leggings train, this is your yearly reminder that they are worth the hype.
I had 3 pairs of pants in my wardrobe last fall and they counted as one of them. I’ve traveled the globe with mine. Washed them a million times. And they still stick like glue. 100% worth the hype.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: Best Travel Essentials
Speaking of traveling the globe, I selected a handful of my favorite pieces that I own and adore. Both the Tumi backpack and small Wolf jewelry case are used regularly. I carry a TON of electronics when I travel and it’s easy to organize them with my backpack. Plus, there is a separate compartment for your laptop so you can easily grab it as needed between flights or on the plane.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: Best Shoes & Accessories
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. I’m tbd on investing in too many pieces while I finish my small closet makeover. Although those black heeled boots might make a liar of me.
But there are SO many gorgeous accessories that I will be snagging this year. The fake diamonds, mixed metal necklace, and straw bag are all fitting my current vibes. I’m also really into trying out new rings so don’t be surprised if there’s a dainty jewelry round-up on the blog soon. I definitely think the jewelry section is the unsung hero of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year.
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
