To be perfectly honest, and I’m probably going to sound like the most un-blogger-blogger with this statement, I was really underwhelmed by the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 and the multitude of offerings. That’s not to say there aren’t some diamonds in the rough. Plus, I know some of y’all are still shopping the sale or have plans to, so I pulled together my picks from this year’s sale. These items are ALL either items I already personally own or by brands that I trust.
It’s important for me to preface this post by saying that this sale is not the end all be all to sales. Do not feel like you have to make a purchase because everyone you follow on Instagram or the blogs you read are telling you to do so! You know your budget, you know what you need and don’t need. Don’t feel the peer pressure! Plus, this year is a whole other beast in itself so if you simply can’t budget right now for shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020, then don’t worry. These items will still be there later.
With the climate of our world right now and all the uncertainty, I wanted to make sure I curated a list of picks that were practical items or things I’ve personally tried. Some of these are investment pieces and others are simply tried and true in my closet.
Truly one of my top picks year after year. I love my GloPro Microneedling tool, it’s one of my go-to skincare tools in my arsenal. It’s made a huge difference on my skin. The microneedles serve to regenerate the skin cells and help cell turnover to assist in a more fresh and wrinkle free face. I love the sets BeautyBio puts together, too. Their skincare is some of my favorite – especially the creams and serums. See my review on why these beauty products are worth the investment in this blog post.
My absolute favorites. I love the regular rise and these undies are worth every penny, but even more so when snagged at a sale price! I wash all my delicates carefully and Hanky Pankys hold up for quite sometime. Highly recommend!
Another tried and true item in my home. I love these Nest Fragrances reed diffusers. I constantly have one in our entryway and our living room. Both the scents are subtle, yet fresh. Plus, these diffusers last a good deal of time. Grab the set of two and you should be good for at least 6 months!
So I don’t personally own this hairdryer, but my mom does and uses it for travel, so I’ve gotten to try it out on trips with her. Definitely worth the price, and what a difference it makes when drying your hair! Works well and quickly, plus it’s lightweight to pack.
Bought these Cole Haan sneakers from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale two years ago, and they’re still on of my go-to pairs of casual kicks. I wear them so much and they’re ultra comfortable. I’ve worn them all day walking golf tournaments or out for the day on vacations, and they’re seriously one of my favorite pairs of casual sneakers. You can see them styled in this prior Nordstrom Anniversary sale blog post.
The ultimate classic tote. I have two of these totes and swear by them. The fabric is durable, as are the straps, so you can carry all your items, including a laptop. In my opinion this is the ultimate travel or work tote. Plus the expandable option is super helpful.
Purchased these in last year’s sale and every time I wear them, people think they are the real deal! A great purchase that won’t have you upset if you happen to misplace them in the future. These diamond-looking studs are truly timeless. 1ct studs also available, shop the 1ct studs here.
These are the best high-end wine glasses. They feel substantial in your hands, and they’re timeless. If you take care of these bad boys, hand wash after each use, then this stemware will be in your collection for years to come. We received the red wine glasses as a wedding gift and love them.
The ultimate in preppy outerwear. I love, love my Barbour jacket and wear it every single season. I have this waxed cotton one, but the quilted option is timeless. See how I previously styled my Barbour jacket here.
My favorite indulgence! I love, love Jo Malone anything. She makes my favorite perfumes and body care products. This exact body & hand wash is in my shopping cart this year.
I’m addicted to the slip on sneakers, and now I have my mom addicted to them, too! They’re so comfy and easy to wear pretty much anywhere. I wrote a complete review of the Tulip perforated slip-on sneakers that you can read here.
Have these pajamas in green and love them so much. They’re super comfy and a great steal when on sale! They also don’t pill after washing. I will preface by saying I do wash and dry pretty much all my clothing on the delicate cycle. Grab them while you can, sizes are going fast.
I’m a self-admitted Frame denim addict. While I don’t have this exact pair of Frame jeans, I have a light blue denim pair in the same style and they’re so flattering! Frame denim is super expensive, but when you can snag pairs on sale, it makes them totally worth it!
