Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tried and True Favorites

Since the Nordstrom sale is starting soon (July 9th for me), I thought I would also share some items that I have purchased in the past. Some I purchased through Nordstrom, but when you can get a good deal on them, you don't pass it up. 

So here are some of my tried and true/favorites that I definitely recommend. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tried and True Favorites

Barefoot Dream Circle Cardigan

I bought this cardigan in 2020. With everyone being home all the time, I wanted a cozy soft cardigan to wear around the house when I wasn't wearing my robe. I still wear this around the house all the time. I got it in a dark gray which isn't available this year, but you can't go wrong with any color. I got a size small in it.

BlankNYC Moto Jacket

I have a slightly different jacket than this as mine was from several years ago. I still wear this all the time. I wore it to the rodeo a few weeks back since it got colder in the evening. Mine also comes with a hood that you can unsnap (which is how I often wear it). I get so many compliments on my jacket and love it so much. Plus the zippers are heavy duty and well made. I got a small in this as well.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Kit

I have used this kit so many times in the past, but now that I have extensions, it is time to purchase it again. This is incredibly hydrating. I use the mask in the shower, the primer before blow drying my hair.

Halogen Open Front Pocket Cardigan

I have this cardigan in green. I got it in 2020 and wear it all the time in Fall. I got it in a small. It is very soft and has held up very well after many washes.

Hanky Panky Underwear

I always stock up on this brand of underwear each Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I like the way it fits, it washes well and are very comfy.

Kate Spade Mini Confetti Studs

These studs are amazing. They are so cute and I had wanted them for years, but never scored them in the anniversary sale (until a few years ago). These make an amazing gift and are very loved in my life.

Longchamp Le Pliage Tote

I did not get my Longchamp tote from the Nordstrom sale as I got mine in Paris at the Longchamp store. I LOVE this thing. I take it on all of my work trips since I also carry a large Michael Kors tote. This way when I got out in the evenings or during lunch, I have another purse. This folds up so small and is very practical. It also repels water and anything else you may spill on it. I have it in black.

Madewell Transport Tote

I got this tote for a birthday gift a few years ago. I have since bought a few new straps from Madewell and love it. It is perfect for a day out, travel and even as a tote for your kids things.

Olaplex Bond Maintenance Kit

While I haven't purchased this kit, I have purchased all three items separately.  But you get this kit for $99 when it is a value of $126. This is what I have been using for the past couple months on my hair and I LOVE it.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

I got these leggings about 6 years ago or so. I wear them very often. Mostly on girls nights or date nights, but they make me feel like a million bucks. They suck everything in, wash very well and go with everything. You can dress them up or down. I wear a size small. I am 5'9" and they even fit my tall frame.

Ugg Slippers

These slippers are my favorite. I have had them in so many colors and continue to get them when mine wear out. Right now I have the light gray pair, but I really like this pink pair. I sized up to a 9 in them for maximum comfort.

I have more favorites from Nordstrom, but none of them are featured this year (like Tory Burch items), so I just shared what is available and what I really do love and use all the time.


  1. I haven't shopped the sale in a while, but I did get a Longchamp tote and spanx during one of them!

    1. Those are two of my favorite items. I buy a bunch and send back a lot as either it wasn't as expected or it didn't fit.

  2. I like your style!! I want to add some of these to my upcoming road trip shopping list! -

  3. Yessss to those Spanx leggings! Seriously the best ever! I always feel GREAT when I wear them.

    1. Same. They suck everything in in all the right places and always make me feel good when wearing them!

  4. Maybe I need a Barefoot Dreams cardigan. Regine

    1. Oh they are so cozy. I live in mine at home during the Winter.
