Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Must-Haves – August 2020

blog

You know I love a good sale! I’m always excited to work with Nordstrom. This year with COVID, they made it a priority to add more casualwear and loungewear to the mix in order to help people with work-from-home options during this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

 

The sale is going on between August 4th – 18th for card members then from August 19th – 30th for the public. You can easily shop online or in-store. To get into the early access options, you’ll need to log in to your account (if you haven’t done this already, you’ll be asked to create one).

 

If you need help shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, we have a special personal styling offer for you available for the month of August! Get a 5 item suggestion for only $45 to shop with me, and to shop with Lexi it’s only $30. Purchase your Shopping Session here and you’ll receive a quick Style Questionnaire to fill out.

 

Below are all my personal favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and a few options I’ve already purchased for clients. Browse through to see comments on fit and what I love about each product.

 

Puff Sleeve Midi Dress

Maggy Puff Sleeve Dress - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Maggy London // Puff Sleeve Pleated Midi Dress

Sale Price $99 // After Sale $164

 

The mock neck is a great alternative to have in your closet when it comes to dresses. This dress can be worn spring through fall simply by switching sandals to boots.

 

Feathers Underwire Contour Bra

Natori // Bliss Perfection Underwire Contour Bra

Sale Price $39.90 // After Sale $68.00

 

Natori is my go-to bra for clients because it fits perfectly. It’s never too tight, and the cups don’t gap. It’s a sexy classic staple for your lingerie.

Off-the-Shoulder Sweater

Leith // Off-The-Shoulder Sweater

Looking for something sexy to wear for fall? Try an off the shoulder sweater to show some skin. Sweaters that are more fitted or have lower necklines are less frumpy.

 

High Waist Raw Hem Crop Flare Jeans

KUT from the Kloth Kelsey Jeans - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Kut From The Kloth // Kelsey High Waist Raw Hem Crop Flare Jeans

Sale Price $58.90 // After Sale $89.50

 

Looking to try a new denim style? This crop flare can be worn with your favorite tee or blouse tucked in. It looks great for fall with a fitted bootie and a slouchy sweater, too.

 

Mod Stripe Ruffle Trim Midi Dress

Julia Jordan Ruffle dress - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Julia Jordan // Mod Stripe Ruffle Trim Midi Dress

Looking to update your casual jacket? Kut from the Kloth has a great budget option. What I love about this is the versatility of it. Pair it with jeans, a dress, or a skirt.

 

At Your Leisure High Waist Leggings

At Your Leisure High Waist Leggings - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Beyond Yoga // At Your Leisure High Waist Leggings

Sale Price $69.90 // After Sale $115.00

 

If you’re going to invest in any leggings for fall, make them sparkle! Pair it with all your sweaters and you’ll feel simultaneously dressed up and comfortable.

 

Tweed Blazer

Halogen Tweed Blazer - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Halogen // Tweed Blazer

Sale Price $79.90 // After Sale $149.00

 

This blazer is the coolest option in the mix. It fits comfortably and it’s not too tight. It compliments broad shoulders, yet it doesn’t have an oversized look, so if you’re petite you can still pull this off. It has enough room to button it up but you’ll always end up wearing it open.

 

Amazing Cozy Wrap Jacket

Zella Amazing Cozy Wrap Jacket - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Zella // Amazing Cozy Wrap Jacket

Sale Price $58.90 // After Sale $89.00

 

I know it’s hard to think of cooler weather right now when it’s so hot out, but this jacket will be a great option to throw on so you can leave the house and still feel stylish. Use it while running errands or to stay warm while working on the computer.

 

Washed Organic Cotton Ankle Jogger Pants

Washed organic cotton jogger pants - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Zella // Washed Organic Cotton Ankle Jogger Pants

Sale Price $45.90 // After Sale $69.00

 

Zella is a go-to for clients and these joggers are easy. Get the Beige Pumice color to add some life to your brighter tees, because you probably have lots of black pant options already in your closet.

 

Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

Donna high waist skinny ankle jeans - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Kut From The Kloth // Donna High-Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

Sale Price $58.90 // After Sale $89.50

 

Haven’t found the right high-waist pants? These are just the right fit: not too high or too stiff of a denim. I’m short but not a petite fit, and these are not overwhelmingly high on me.

 

Ofira Sunrays Diamond Mini Stud Earrings

Sunrays diamond stud mini earrings - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Bony Levy // Ofira Sunrays Diamond Mini Stud Earrings

Sale Price $394.90 // After Sale $595.50

 

If you’re looking for classic, everyday stud earrings, these are it! The crinkled metal around the center stone makes it unique and you’ll never go wrong pairing these with anything.

 

Cubic Zirconia Sterling Medallion Necklace

Medallion Necklace - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Argento Vivo Sterling Silver // Cubic Zirconia Sterling Medallion Necklace

Sale Price $44.90 // After Sale $78.00

 

Delicate necklaces are the go-to of the moment. What I love about this medallion necklace is it has just enough sparkle. Easily layer it with other delicate necklaces for a unique look.

 

Val Bootie

Cole Haan Val Bootie - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cole Haan // Val Bootie

Sale Price $99.90 // After Sale $200.00

 

I’m loving the sale price for all the Cole Haan options! I love the detailing on top for these booties. They’re perfect to add some interest to a regular denim and sweater look.

 

Kensington Chelsea Boot

42 Gold Kensington Bootie - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

42 Gold // Kensington Chelsea Boot

Sale Price $99.90 // After Sale $159.95

 

I’m still a fan of the white bootie. It’s a refreshing piece to have in your shoe options for fall. It’ll brighten up any look, and it’s just beautiful.

 

Blazer Low SE Sneaker

Nike Blazer Low SE sneaker - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nike // Blazer Low SE Sneaker

Vania Half d’Orsay Pump

Cole Haan Vania Half d'Orsay Pump in red - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cole Haan // Vania Half d’Orsay Pump

Sale Price $89.90 // After Sale $160.00

 

Comfortable heels that are stylish? Thank you Cole Hann for these beautiful pumps. They come in other colors, but I decided to share the red because it can be an option for holiday time too.
