2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: My Top Picks + What I Purchased

Happy Early Access NSALE Day, y’all! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially kicks off today for all Nordstrom cardholders, and it is SO good this year! I can’t wait to share all the deals that I got. 🙂 Yesterday, I went through every page of women’s clothing, accessories, shoes, etc. and even browsed a little home decor and beauty products that are part of the sale. I saved all of my top picks to share with you all, and I’m linking them all below. Over the next couple weeks, I’ll be sharing blog posts specifically geared toward the men’s sale, beauty exclusives, home finds, and more! Be sure to check back often or follow me on Instagram so that you don’t miss out on anything!

Before you start shopping, I want to link yesterday’s blog post because it includes some helpful tips for navigating the sale and how to become a cardholder so that you can start shopping the sale today!! Let me know if you have any questions at all, but if not, let’s get to shopping!

First, I’m sharing the items that I personally bought from the NSALE. I placed my order online yesterday (because Knoxville doesn’t have a Nordstrom … I know, crazy right?!) so I ordered more than what I’ll actually be keeping. I wanted to have plenty of options to try on to decide what I like best and to compare items for you all! I’m here to be the best shopping resource for y’all. It’s actually really nice shopping the sale online and avoiding the in-store chaos, so I highly recommend ordering online (Nordstrom offers free shipping + free returns) and you can have items shipped to your home or you can pick up your order in-store!

Linking everything that I’ve purchased so far — click on the image of the item you want to shop and it will send you directly to that item on Nordstrom’s site!

*Once my order arrives, I’ll try on everything for you all and round up the outfits in a blog post + Instagram stories. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, I’ve rounded up my top picks from a few categories that y’all said you wanted to shop from, so follow along below to see the best cardigans, sweaters, shoes/boots, comfies, accessories, bags and staple wardrobe pieces. (Just click on the words that are underlined & it will take you to the site to shop.) I’ll be rounding up my top picks from other categories in the coming days, but I wanted to go ahead and share the items below because these will be the pieces that sell out VERY quickly. I highly recommend purchasing your items asap because if you leave them in your cart for too long, they may sell out before you can checkout — just a heads up 😉

2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: My Top Picks + What I Purchased | love 'n' labels www.lovenlabels.com

grey cardigan – I grab at least one of these basic cardigans each year during the sale because they’re so perfect for transitioning into fall!

lace cami – BEST camis to layer under jackets and cardigans. I wear these year-round! (true to size // I wear the small)

AG jeans – BEST JEANS EVER, hands down!!!! I’m a jean snob (I’ve tried allll the denim), and this pair is by far my fav for skinny jeans. Great to wear with booties or to tuck down into taller boots. (true to size // they have a little stretch)

Zella leggings – These are my favorite basic, black leggings because they are high-waisted, thick enough to where you can’t see through them and they suck everything in! I size down to XS in these because I like my leggings to have a tight fit. (These stretch out a tiny bit after the first wear.)

Spanx faux leather leggings – If you buy one thing from my ‘staples’ category, let it be these faux leather leggings … and thank me later! 😉 I wear these pretty much daily in the fall/winter. So easy to dress up or down! These will sell out SO fast so grab them now! (true to size // I wear the small)

nude booties – I own these booties in last season’s style, and they go with literally every fall outfit! Multiple colors available in this style.

basic tees – STOCK UP!! Best layering tees! (true to size)

denim jacket – Everyone needs a good denim jacket for fall! This one fits a little oversized.

leather jacket – I live in leather jackets in fall/winter, and y’all this is such a good one!! This is something you can invest in now and wear for YEARS to come!

Barefoot Dreams leopard blanket – This is the blanket I rave about all the time! It’s definitely pricy for a blanket, but it’s my favorite purchase that I’ve ever made during the NSALE. They hold up so well in the wash, and they’re just overall so cozy and soft. I use mine all day at my desk and sleep with it at night, lol! HIGHLY recommend grabbing one while they’re on sale!! Comes in many colors.
