Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | What I Bought

What I Bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Today I wanted to share what I bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale—and EVERYTHING is still in stock!

As I put together this collage, I realized I may have purchased one too many pairs of neutral ankle booties—what can I say, shoes are my weakness. I'll probably force myself to return at least one pair because, where am I even going to wear all these shoes come fall?!

Overall I focused on practical pieces I will literally live in, from the softest cardigan known to man, to these top-rated joggers (only $38!)

1. Caslon Long Sleeve Crewneck T-Shirt: For just $15 this layering tee was a must-have. I love the subtle leopard print.

2. UGG Elisa Genuine Shearling Bootie: I was hoping my popular Ugg sneakers would be back in the sale this year, but it wasn't to be. So, I grabbed these instead mostly to share with readers throughout the fall and winter season. I think they are the perfect little Ugg boot to pair with any and every outfit. I stalked these last year and they never really go on sale besides during the Anniversary Sale (that I've seen).

3. Quay Australia It's My Way 55mm Cat Eye Sunglasses: This item was canceled after I ordered it which is a bummer, but I see they're cheaper (during the BOGO sale) on the Quay website. Nonetheless, I was just able to reorder these on Nordstrom, so we'll see if it sticks this time.

4. Caslon Aidy Water Resistant Wedge Sneaker: I've been slow to adopt the sneaker wedge trend because I haven't found a comfortable pair. Maybe this will be a winner?!

5. Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Cardigan: I've been dreaming of owning one of these for years. I hope it lives up to my expectations!

6. Zella Live-In Jogger Pants: Also in plus-size, these were a no-brainer for me. I live in joggers nowadays and I'm okay with that. Might as well get this top-rated pair!

7. Nordstrom Cubic Zirconia Pendant Necklace: Another truth is I generally just wear dainty jewelry—if I'm wearing jewelry at all. So this necklace will be perfect for adding a touch of sparkle to my everyday joggers and t-shirt look, LOL.

8. Vince Camuto Gradina Block Heel Bootie: I totally regretted not buying the popular Gigietta bootie last year, so this year I just went for it and got the Gradina. If you own the Gigietta, you do not need the Gradina. They look very similar. But I love them just the same!

I really wanted the Barefoot Dreams socks and a Patagonia fleece this year, but all those items were sold out before I had access to the sale.
