My Top Clothing Picks: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

The votes are in, and you guys want to see my top picks for this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

In case you don't know what the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is, this is basically the best time of year for anyone who loves fashion. Nordstrom pre-releases all the new Fall arrivals, marks everything down to killer sale prices, and then at the end of the sale all the prices get marked back up to normal retail! Pretty bomb, right?!

So the thing to keep in mind about this sale is that people are SERIOUS about it, aka things sell out fast. If you are shopping online and you see something you have to have, check out right then! It is all free shipping. Seriously I can't even tell you how many times I added things to my cart and then kept browsing and by the time I got to check out, multiple things in my cart were already sold out.

Nordstrom usually does a couple re-stocks throughout the sale, but they are never full restocks. So again, if you see something that you really want, CHECK OUT IMMEDIATELY.

Another good tip for this sale is also think about gifts for family and friends! I usually browse through everything twice: the first time looking for items I want for myself, and the second time thinking about anything I can use as gifts for holidays or birthdays within the next year! The accessories category usually comes in clutch on this one (think Kendra Scott, blanket scarves, purses, and my favorite....the Voluspa candle sets and Kennebunk plush throws)!

Once I get my online orders in, I will do a try-on haul on my Instagram stories, so stay tuned for that!! Some of the items I have already tried on in-stores, so for those I included some sizing information to help.


Trouve Rib Funnel Neck Sweater

This was one of the first items to sell out, and I'm crossing my fingers they do a re-stock! I love it in this color, and it also comes in a gorgeous red. I managed to snag one in red online, so this will be included in my try-on haul when I receive it!

SALE: $52.90 // AFTER SALE: $79.00

Halogen Side Tie Cashmere Sweater

This sweater is available in 4 other colors. Cashmere under $100, Yes, please!

SALE: $89.90 // AFTER SALE: $129.00

Treasure & Bond Long Knit Duster

This is a one size fits all and it is definitely long, so if you're short like me you'll for sure need to wear it with heels.

SALE: $65.90 // AFTER SALE: $99.00

BP. Textured Stitch V-Neck Pullover

Great layering piece, and comes in multiple colors. These run a little oversized.

SALE: $25.90 // AFTER SALE: $39.00

Gibson Ribbed Cozy Fleece Twist Back Top

How cute is that back?!

SALE: $42.90 // AFTER SALE: $64.00

Leith Rib Wrap Sweater

Such a good sweater staple. For my musicians out there, this also comes in black! #concertattire

Keep in mind this sweater is cropped, though. If you are like 5'2" or below you can get away with it as a normal sweater, but if you are taller than that you will want to wear it with something high-waisted. Leith runs true to size (I wear an XS).

SALE: $39.90 // $59.00

Halogen Cashmere Button Sleeve Sweater

This runs true to size, so if you want a more oversized sweater look, size up.

SALE $89.90 // AFTER SALE: $129.00


BP. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee

This comes in 6 colors, is so soft, and the price is amazing. Stock up, my friends! These run true to size. I can wear an XS for more fitted, or S if I want slight looseness to it.

SALE: $11.90 // AFTER SALE: $17.00

BP. Raw Edge Scoop Neck Tee

Same style of shirt, long sleeves. These are going to be a staple all Fall and Winter. Available in 6 colors, definitely stock up on these guys, too!

SALE: $18.90 // AFTER SALE: $29.00

Topshop Elbow Sleeve Turtleneck Top

Perfect top for concerts and gigs! Topshop runs small plus this top is super fitted, so size up!

SALE: $15.90 // AFTER SALE: $25.00

BP. Lace Cami

So this thing sold out within HOURS online and in-store, but I'm crossing my fingers they do a restock! If they do, stock up. Perfect layering tank!

SALE: $$22.00 // AFTER SALE: $35.00


Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover

This guy sold out immediately last year but it is currently still in stock in most sizes/colors, so if you want one snag it now! This is seriously the SOFTEST material, you're going to want to live in this thing. It runs large.

SALE: $51.90 // AFTER SALE: $78.00

Gallery Hooded Parka with Faux Fur Liner

If you love the military green anorak jackets but want one with a little more warmth, this is your guy!

SALE: $146.90 // AFTER SALE: $220.00

Halogen Tie Sleeve Trench Coat

If you don't own a trench coat yet, it's time, my friend. It is a classic and can be worn year round!

SALE: $124.90 // AFTER SALE: $189.00

Badgley Mischka Double Face Wool Blend Wrap Front Coat

Another classic: the wool coat. If you've been on the hunt, might as well get one on sale! It also comes in a gorgeous lavender.

SALE: $229.90 // AFTER SALE: $349.00

BLANKNYC Cloud Nine Drape Jacket

You guys, this jacket is SO SOFT. Honestly I want one in every color.

SALE: $59.90 // AFTER SALE: $90.00


PAIGE Hoxton High Waist Skinny Jeans

These are straight up my favorite jeans I have ever owned. The material is so soft, they have the perfect amount of stretch, and the high waist is incredibly flattering. If you only buy one pair of jeans from this sale, it should be these. They are currently sold out online, but both Austin stores still have them in stock + crossing my fingers for a re-stock (seriously considering buying a second pair)!

SALE: $109.90 // AFTER SALE: $189.00

Madewell Drawstring Track Trousers

Can you tell I'm on board with comfy dress pants? I like tacos, yall, give me a break.

SALE: $64.90 // $98.00

Rag & Bone Ankle Skinny Jeans

These were my other favorite pair of jeans that I tried on in store! Really soft + some stretch.
