My top picks at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened this week and it did not disappoint. I arrived at Nordstrom, MOA on Tuesday at 8:30 am - right when the sale opened up to Icons. My stylist and good friend met me at the door, and together we cruised through all the sale items, picking the best of the best.

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is so good because they offer something for everyone at every price point. It's easy to get overwhelmed and go overboard at this sale. My advice... just have fun and pick items that work for you and your lifestyle.

And here they are - my top ten picks of the 2020 Sale!

#1 Barefoot Dreams Cardigan

OK - you can't get any cozier then this super soft cardigan. It's like wearing your favorite blanket - and I can't get over the print! This is going to become one of my go-tos for staying comfy at home. I've already worn it over a tank with my new Ugg joggers - what's even better then being comfy? Feeling comfy AND cute. I purchased my usual size small.

#2 Slip Hair Scrunchies

I have been wearing these hair scrunchies since December, and they are definitely my favorites. They not only look classy and lux in a pony, but are super cute around your wrist. (I always have a scrunchi on my wrist when I wear my hair down.) Super excited that these were a part of the Nsale. BONUS- the set came with a cute leopard print scrunchi... so gotta love that!

#3 Free People Bralettes

These Free People bralettes are already a staple in my closet, so when they showed up on Anniversary, I was like yes please! These bralettes are so cute layered under deep V tops, tank tops, even strappy sundresses. They show just enough peek-a-boo while still making you feel put together. I ordered these in every color in my usual size small.

#4 ATM Dress

I am in love with this dress. I had this picked before going into the store, and when I saw it in person, I knew it would become a favorite. I love the gray/black stripe, the contrasting pocket adds just enough detail, and the fabric is so good. This dress is at a higher price point, but with ATM, you get what you pay for. I wore this the other night to a meeting layered under a denim button-down with gold slides... polished and put together. I'll also be styling this dress with my favorite designer sneaks and denim jacket or layered under a slouchy sweater. An excellent quality dress that you can easily dress up or down.

#5 Rag and Bone Fedora

I don't own a fedora. I have no idea why, but I don't have one. When I saw this at Anniversary, I snagged it right away. This wool and felt hat is such good quality and I love how comfortable the fit is. If you don't own a fedora, grab this one. It's gong to be a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.

#6 Pleated Sleeve Sweatshirt

This top had me at the sleeves. Seriously - I walked by the rack and immediately grabbed this sweatshirt and said - CHECK OUT THESE SLEEVES! This sweatshirt is super soft and the fit is so good. Also - you can't beat TopShop prices. I purchased this in my usual size small.

#7 Leather Moto Jacket

I was blown away at the quality of this leather moto jacket and at such a good price point. The blush color is right on trend - the perfect neutral addition to my fall wardrobe. I can't wait to layer this jacket over my favorite sweaters and hoodies. Because I plan to layer, I did size up two to a size 8.

#8 Cloud Athletic Shoes

I discovered Cloud athletic shoes back in April, and they have become my new favorite workout shoes. My legs don't feel fatigued and they are super comfortable. I typically swap out my workout shoes every 6 months to be sure I get the support I need. With the markdown on these Cloud sneaks, I ended up buying two pairs... one for inside workouts and the other for outdoor. When you find your favorite athletic shoes on markdown, just get them. End of story.

#9 Ugg Joggers

I'm a Minnesota girl and I'm ALWAYS cold. In the summer I freeze from the air-conditioning... and in the winter I freeze because - Minnesota. I wear comfy pajama pants year round and I'm always on the lookout for cute pairs. These uggs are so comfy - the inside feels like a fuzzy blanket. These joggers are warm and the fit is so cute - not at all sloppy. I don't know about you, but I love feeling cozy as well as put together. I purchased these joggers in the gray and the navy in my usual size small.

#10 Barefoot Dreams Blanket

So what's all the hype about these fuzzy blankets? Only that they are incredibly soft and warm. And spoiler alert - they get even softer with each wash. Also - who doesn't want a cute leopard print throw hanging out in their house. This blanket has already been traveling room to room with me at home... I'm thinking we are going to become inseparable in the coming months. And again - excellent price point at the Anniversary sale.

Hopefully some of my favorites will become some of your favorites. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale literally has something for everyone! I can't wait to hear about all your favorite picks.

Happy shopping!
