Each year, I share both my beauty-related and non-beauty related picks from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale! We’ll see exactly what I end up buying tomorrow (Ambassador access online tomorrow, July 11th; all cardholders on July 12th, and everyone else July 19th), but here are my picks based on what I’ve seen so far… I’d love to hear what you’re thinking of snagging, if you are shopping the sale!

These are the sets I’m most likely to pick up; most of them are for review purposes!

Being in Arizona, I can look longingly at the gorgeous winter coats during the sale but know that there are only a handful of days when it gets cold enough to even bother, aka use the coats I already have and don’t buy more of them! Most of the year, flowy cardigans are my jam; they’re thin and lightweight enough to wear inside restaurants during the summer and are enough for early spring and later fall. I’m eyeing Caslon’s Off Duty Knit Cardigan (pink and olive green are murmuring to me) for $45.90 (regularly $69).
Look, I live in loungewear, and since I work from home, I enjoy being in cozy, comfy clothes the most! These are some items that are on my preliminary list: BP Lightweight Sweater for $25.90 (regularly $39), Halogen Modal Tee for $24.90 (regularly $39), Halogen Faux Wrap Sweater for $49.90 (regularly $79), BP Cozy Joggers for $25.90 (regularly $39.00).
Huge, huge fan of Nordstrom Lingerie’s Moonlight Pajamas, whether standalone pieces or sets, and I’ve even converted my mom into loving these so much that she actually asked for another set for her birthday (of course, me being me, I set her three sets). They’ve replaced most of my sleepwear, and I tend to mix and match depending on season (I opt for long sleeves but shorts for summer). The long-sleeve/pants sets are going for $42.90 (regularly $65), while the short-sleeve/short sets are $35.60 (regularly $55.00).
When I go out, I’m usually a jeans kind of gal, and I have several pairs and enjoy Wit & Wisdom–the price point is soft for Nordstrom, but they wear well for me. I’m thinking about the Ab-solution High Waist Skinny Jeans for $51.90 (regularly $78), Ab-solution Skinny Jeans for $44.90 (regularly $68). I’ve always had good luck with drape tops so Halogen’s Sleeveless Drape Front Top for $38.90 (regularly $59) in that bluish-teal is on my radar. I’ve been significantly reducing how many new shoes I buy, so the only ones I’m considering are Tory Burch’s Everly Ballet Flats in tan for $164.90 (regularly $248) and Flat Sandals in pink for $149.90 (regularly $228) (and if you like a chunky heel, the Everly Sandals look great; I have a similar style from last year’s sale that I love).
For the home: Nordstrom at Home’s Cotton Towels are really dense, absorbent towels that are soft while being plush and durable; I have two sets and plan to pick up a third. I cozy up in UGG’s Coastline Throw Blanket I picked up earlier this year (and loved so much I bought the matching pillows), which isn’t part of the sale, but this UGG Whisler Throw Blanket for $69.90 (regularly $98.00) looks really close. I’ll share this mini review: when it comes to luxury throws, UGG’s Coastline is my current Queen of blankets; I’ve tried the Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Throw, which is warm but not as cuddly as I like, along with Giraffe’s Luxe Throw, which is cuddly and kept me warm but is high-maintenance for washing and didn’t hold up nearly as well as I would like for the price (ridiculously expensive).
