Are you sick of seeing #NSale information EVERYWHERE? 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is hyped up so much because it really is THE shopping event of the summer. It’s not like a regular sale where overstocked items or out of season items are discounted. Rather, it’s the opposite! There are so many great NEW items on sale. I shop the sale to invest in workout clothes and quality staples. I don’t fall for just buying anything and everything because it’s on sale. I’m not one to purchase the same sweaters and dresses as everyone else. I am very choosy, and I wanted to share my absolute favorites with you below. This is not sponsored, just my honest opinions. 

First, let’s go over all of the details on this sale:

Now on to the categories that I mostly shop during the sale:


This sale is the PERFECT time to invest in quality workout gear, and it is the first category I visit when I shop the sale each year. If you’re big busted, try out Wacoal sports bras (and regular bras too). I love their sports bras because they keep the girls from slapping me in the face when I run. Nike tanks are my favorite loose fitting tops to wear at the gym, and I got both of these in black and in white. Have you tried Zella leggings? If not, you’re missing out! They are so nice, and even when they’re not on sale, they’re still less expensive than Lululemon leggings. I ordered these in pink today. 


How cute are these Nikes?! Great for the gym and cute for casual errand days too. Nordstrom doesn’t offer many shoe brands that don’t use animal products, but all of the above are vegan. LOVING the over the knee boots! If you don’t have a pair, invest now! 


I almost always overlook the home section online and in store. If you’re in the market for new sheets/bedding, this is such a great sale for you. My favorite part is the Voluspa candles!


Jeans can be so expensive, so waiting to buy designer jeans until the sale comes especially is so smart. 

Have you shopped the sale yet?
