I’ll start by saying that I’m highly aware that times are tough, but I also know that the one thing that always helps get me through these hard times (other than wine) is some good old fashioned retail therapy. And fortunately for us, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has arrived just in time for you to make yourself feel better by hitting “check out”. And not only is this the sale of all sales to buy yourself some new fall pieces at exclusive prices, but it’s also the prime time to take advantage of rare sales on new beauty, accessories, and home pieces with prices that you just won’t find anywhere else. It ends on Sunday, so don’t sleep on this sale.
1. Socialite Crewneck T-Shirt
This tee is easily going to be a closet staple as we transition from summer to fall. The neutral snake print makes it trendier than your classic white tee, while the print is still subtle enough it can be paired with multiple different looks. Wear this tee now with a pair of distressed denim shorts and sneakers or, in a couple months from now, layered under a jacket or a cardigan.
2. Avec Les Filles Moto Detail Coat
Once you’re out of college, it’s crucial that you have a nice fall coat that isn’t just some dirty jacket you stole from a frat a few years ago. You need a high-quality piece that makes you look polished and as if you have your sh*t together, even if you actually don’t. The coat above is knocked down more than $100 off its regular price, which is an amazing deal.
3. 7 For All Mankind Dojo Wide Leg Jeans
As fall approaches, it’s time to start considering your denim situation. This pair from 7 For All Mankind is the ideal pair to purchase right now during the anniversary sale because they can seamlessly transition from summer to fall. The light wash color keeps the jeans summer-appropriate, while the trendy wide leg silhouette makes them stylish for fall.
4. Leith Cozy Long Cardigan
This cardigan comes in several different colors and is currently almost half off. I personally love a cardigan all year round. You can wear it now on a summer night paired with denim shorts, and then into the fall layered over all your basics. This cardigan is the perfect weight and length to casually layer over tanks, tees, or even over a fitted turtleneck as we move into the colder months.
5. Vince Low Top Sneaker
Everyone needs a good pair of sneakers to wear with jeans and leggings in the fall. This pair by Vince is a classic style that is sure to work with all of your fall outfits. Whether you’re running errands or heading out on the town (with your mask, of course), these sneakers are perfect for the occasion.
6. UGG Wade Throw Blanket
If you’re going to treat yourself to something from this anniversary sale, let it be this gorgeous and cozy blanket from UGG. There’s nothing more comforting and luxurious than snuggling into a premium blanket at the end of a long work day, even if it is just a work-from-home type of work day. Regardless, you deserve it.
7. Voluspa Vermeil Set of 5 Mini Tin Candles
Since we’re all spending so much time at home right now, it’s important that we do everything we can to keep our environments zen. And I know that for me, even when my room is “was she hit by a tornado?”-level-messy, if I at the very least just light a candle then it gives me an instant sense of calm. Right now you can get this pack of beautiful and high-quality candles for just under $35.
8. Supergoop! Limited-Edition Set of 3 Body Mist
Supergoop! has quickly become my go-to sunscreen over these past few months. Their products do the job of protecting our delicate skin while still respecting our need to want to look good. By that I mean, their products effortlessly fit into any beauty routine and don’t make it look like you’re wearing sunscreen even when you are. With this limited-edition value set of three, you can keep a bottle in multiple different places so that you can be confident you’re always taking care of your skin.
9. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Secrets Set
Charlotte Tilbury’s pillow talk shade has become a universal favorite among celebrity makeup artists as the perfect pinky-nude color. I personally own this shade in the lipstick and lip liner, and can attest to it being both stunning and flattering. Right now during the anniversary sale, you can even get the full trifecta of lip-enhancing pillow talk products for a major discount.
10. Too Faced Hangover Prime, Set, Refresh Set
If you, like many of us, are drinking more in quarantine (no shame), chances are your skin is showing it. Too Face’s two-piece set includes a hydrating primer and a setting spray to bring your skin back to life. Formulated with probiotic-based coconut water and skin revivers, it will instantly hydrate your skin while locking in makeup so you can face the day again.
These exclusive anniversary sale deals were already starting to sell out as I was trying to write this article. That being said, my advice to you is to follow the wise words of Ariana Grande and if you “see it, like it and want it”…then you should get it.
