My 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks [Fall Essentials]

It’s that time again! Time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Today is the first day for Anniversary Sale Early Access Event which is opened up exclusively for Nordstrom cardholders and it runs through July 19th. In case you’re like me and are already craving cool temps, cozy sweaters and cute booties by mid-July, then I’ve got you covered! Today, I’ve rounded up my top picks of the sale! Want to know my secret? I shop for my Fall Essentials on Day 1 of the sale because honestly, the prices just can’t be beat. I’ve broken down my picks into categories to make it easy for you to do some shopping. I’ve already placed my own personal order, but I’ve got more than a few things still left in my cart and on my wishlist! So many of these items go fast and some even before the full access public event, so if you see something that strikes your fancy, I would snag it ASAP!

Come and take a peek at the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access picks I’m eyeing for Fall!


Who else is trying to fight the urge for warm and cozy sweaters and cardigans?! I’m stocking up because they are the perfect layering piece to throw on at night at the end of Summer and start of Fall and then as a daily wardrobe essential as the temps cool down closer to Winter. Deep burgundy, olive green, camel & cognac and of course, classic black are going to be hot colors for Fall!

I’m loving this black moto jacket as a slightly edgier layering piece for girls’ night or date night. 

I snagged this black and white striped tee for $11.90 to wear yet this Summer or to layer underneath any of these cardis! And I couldn’t help myself with this Camo & gray colorblocked baseball tee. Camo and colorblocking are going to be huge again this Fall so get ready to see a lot more of it!



As you can see, this round-up is shoe-heavy. What can I say? I had a baby 3 weeks ago and shoe shopping is what kept me sane during my pregnancy. Also, it might be a bit before my body bounces back, but shoes, well they always fit!!

Bold prints, studded mules and slides, cut-outs and perforated booties are super hot and on-trend again this Fall. Update any of your classic flats or booties for these options with a bit more detail and pizzazz! 


This is the time to stock up on essentials like pillows, throws and towels! My absolute all-time favorite bath towels are available during the sale and I grabbed 2 more white and 2 more gray. They are just the best.

You might recognize my animal print throw from around the house! The N-sale is one of the best times of the year to grab any Barefoot Dreams items [their sweaters and cardigans are the best, too!] I have more throws than I can count, but they are perfect to lounge on the couch with or to keep near you in bed or to stash in the guest room. They are a bit of a splurge, but you can not go wrong with these blankets. Trust me!! I’ve been using them for several years and they never get old!


There are a few things I’m eyeing here, but haven’t pulled the trigger. These are slightly higher ticketed items, so are not as easy to mindlessly toss in the cart! If you’ve ever wanted a Michele watch but didn’t want to pay the amount on the price tag, now is your chance. I’m in LOVE with this silver and gold combo watch with diamonds, but may have to just keep waiting. Or perhaps I can hint to a certain someone for our upcoming anniversary at the end of the month 🙂 I also really love the all gold one.
