My Most Used and Worn Purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 After scouring every page of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year, I was pleased to see some pieces I own and love included in this year’s product offerings. While I may not have been lucky enough to purchase all of these things on sale, maybe you’ll be able to get a deal on them! The pieces I’ve chosen to include in this post are all items included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that are some of my most worn and used purchases. If you’re looking to narrow down your cart and happen to see the need for any of these items in your life, they all come highly recommended by me! 

CZ Diamond Pendant

I had no idea when I purchased this during last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale that I would wear it nearly every day. I am kind of an off-and-on necklace wearer or at least have been in the past. After putting this piece on for the first time now I feel naked without it. I believe it says not to shower or workout in it to keep the material looking good as new, but I do both in mine and haven’t had any problems with the material turning. I may purchase a backup one during this year’s sale to have on hand just in case. One day I’d love to upgrade mine to the real deal, but for now, you truly can’t tell the difference! 

Dyson Cordless Vacuum

My parents gave me my Dyson Cordless Vacuum for Christmas and I was so thrilled I made them skip me the next time it came to be my turn to open a present because I wanted to set it up. Once you’ve used a cordless vacuum I imagine it would be hard to switch back, and this one does such an awesome job! It holds a charge long enough for me to vacuum the areas I need it to and is lightweight and easy to maneuver. Who knew as a mid-twenty-year-old I could become so passionate about a vacuum, but here we are! 

Madewell Jeans

I have a love-hate relationship with jeans. Finding pairs that fit my legs while also fitting my waist can be a challenge. After getting a pair from Madewell a few years ago they are practically all I wear now. I will definitely be ordering a pair or two from the sale in my most worn washes to give the ones I have a bit of a break.

Barbour Quilted Jacket

Although I was bummed that there weren’t any waxed Barbour jackets included in this year’s sale, I am glad that there are a few quilted ones available. I have a grey one released in a spring collection and get a lot of wear out of it in both the spring and the fall thanks to Alabama’s milder weather. The brown color of this one would be so pretty for fall! 

Marc Fisher Booties

I’ve purchased two different pairs of booties from past Anniversary Sales, and my Marc Fisher pair is my most reached for. The colors offered and pointed toe make them chic while also being versatile. I order a half size up from my typical shoe size in most booties! 

Longchamp Le Pliage Tote

I have loved Longhamp’s nylon totes since I was in 8th grade and my larger size one still gets a lot of use. Currently, it has been my workout bag if I’m going to a workout class after being in the office, but it’s also so easy to fold up and pack with you on a trip if you suspect you’ll need a versatile tote. The expandable version included in the sale looks like it would be awesome as a weekend tote too! 

Michele Watch

I wear my Michele watch practically daily and although the styles offered in the sale differ from what I own I have no doubt it would be a great everyday piece for anyone in the market! It’s a great price point for a high-quality and stylish watch.


I so wish I had never tried Olaplex’s products but now that I have there’s no turning back. There No. 3 product is an amazing leave-in product to revive my hair and I alternate the shampoo and conditioner with another set when my hair needs some help looking healthier! 

I’d love to know if there are any products you’ve seen in the sale that you own and love.

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wishlist

 Like I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I use the Nordstrom Sale as my chance to fill holes in my closet for the season ahead before I’ll actually need to start wearing the items. Last year, I made it a point to pay attention to what items I felt were missing in my closet when picking out outfits in the winter and fall so that I could purchase them during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While I wish I were good about sticking to what I “need”, this sale roundup contains a few items I “want” as well. 

Since I am able to start shopping the sale tomorrow, these items are hanging out in my cart until I have the opportunity to check out. You can click directly on the items in the image below to be taken to all the details about the piece!

NSale Preview Favorites

 If you follow other bloggers, I’m sure you have already seen lots of information regarding the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Usually, at this point, I would have already shared some posts on the subject too, but I’ve only just had a chance to scroll through the sale to see what all is being offered. 

Keep scrolling for the clickable image!

Access to the sale is broken up into tiers based on how much you’ve spent on the site over the course of the year and whether or not you have a Nordstrom Credit Card. Since I have a card, I will be able to begin shopping on Friday. I’m not one to open up credit cards at various retailers, but the Nordstrom card definitely has perks that are worth it to me, including shopping the sale early before items sell out. I believe if you apply now, approval can still occur in time for you to take advantage of shopping early. If you’re not interested in doing that (which I totally understand), you’ll be able to begin shopping the sale on July 28th. The sale will end for everyone on August 8th. 

The reason the sale is so hyped up is that it allows you to shop the newest pieces for upcoming seasons before the time comes to wear them. This is WAY better to me than having to wait until the end of a season to purchase items that I won’t be able to wear until the following year! 

Below you will find my favorite finds from previewing the sale! You can click directly on the items in the image below to be taken to where they can be purchased once you have access to the sale!

My Daily Summer Routine

 If you read yesterday’s post, then you’ve already read that life has been busy (in the best way) lately. Gone are the days of a relaxing summer week with no plans, and while sometimes I would love to go back to that, I know I’m not good at relaxing and prefer to keep myself busy. In some ways, I’ve probably added more to my plate than necessary this summer, but the more the merrier, I suppose. 

Whenever I ask y’all what type of posts you’d be interested in seeing routines always fall high on the list. Since that’s what y’all seem to want to see, I’ve put together a very generalized version of my daily summer routine. It’s subject to change depending on the day and what I have going on for work since I do have a full-time job, a couple of very flexible freelancing gigs, and a blog I’m hoping to be better about keeping up with! And let’s not forget a social life and love of reading and sleep, haha! Here’s a look at what I’m up to on a given day.

Are you more of a morning person or night owl in the summer?
