EEEK! The NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE 2018 is finally here! If you’re as crazy about the sale as I am you’re probably sipping coffee to try and stay awake so you can get all the goods before getting some much-needed shut-eye. I’m snagging everything I know I want online for in-store pick-up… and anything I can’t pick up, I’ll have shipped to the house. I’m currently in Charlotte to shop the sale as soon as the doors open since we don’t have a Nordstrom back home. Then I’ll be rushing back so I can start preparing try-ons, photos, and posts. I told my photographer to be prepared haha!

Continue reading for links to 15 things I’ll probably throwing into my shopping bag.


REBECCA MINKOFF SMALL LEOPARD CROSSBODY // I saw this bag and immediately started drooling! I absolutely love leopard print and fortunately, it’s all over the sale this year. Shoes, bags, scarves – love it so much. I purchased this bag in an almost identical style last year in army green, but like this one 100x more!
SOLE SOCIETY FAUX LEATHER TOTE // This is the perfect tote bag for work (or casual of course). I can see it going super fast because last year’s version flew off the shelves. It was even hard to come by after the sale was over. This one comes in two colors but I’m loving the cognac. 
TORY BURCH SMALL MARSDEN LEATHER TOTE // OH! Tory gets me every year. Last year it was the boots (btw totally worth it), and this year it’s this adorable small tote with chain link detailing. There are several Tory Burch bags on sale but this is my fav because I don’t own anything like it and I think it would be easy to carry for all occasions and holds all the necessities.  
BLONDO NOVA WATERPROOF BOOTIE // I personally feel like this is going to be one of the most popular booties of the sale because it comes in a bunch of colors and would go with just about anything. Every year wardrobe basics are the most popular because you can wear them over and over and over. And there’s nothing better than a “goes with everything” tan bootie. 
SAM EDELMAN CAPRICE KNEE HIGH BOOT // Next to the leopard crossbody bag, THIS is the item I want the most. I absolutely love the high heel and how chic it looks in black. They also have a beautiful tan pair as well that I think will sell out first. I feel like I reach for black more often and they easily stay cleaner longer. OR you can always buy both haha!
SPERRY SHEARWATER WATERPROOF BOOT // Okay, I almost passed these over until I saw a picture of them on another blogger’s post. The color combo of the blush & white is to die for and right up my alley. Plus, I love Sperry’s quality and comfort! Last winter I wore my Hunter rain boots (also part of the sale they are amazing!) which totally worked but I’d love to have some snow dedicated boots like these. 

AG EX-BOYFRIEND JEANS // I bought the distressed version of these last year and they were SO hard to get ahold of because I didn’t snag them right away. I highly encourage you to get what you want asap because certain things don’t get fully restocked. These jeans are amazing quality, super comfy, and wear well with so many casual outfits. FYI size down (I had to get a 23)!

LEITH BOXY CARDIGAN // This cardigan will be a must-have. Leith cardis go so fast every year and are always super soft. I love that they always make one in blush for all us pink obsessed gals lol. If you like the pink, definitely snag, it’s usually the first to go!
ZELLA LIVE IN CROPPED LEGGINGS // I own three pairs of Zella Live In leggings in the full-length style. I spotted the cropped version in this year’s sale and really want to try them (they also come in grey). I literally live in my Zella leggings in the fall and winter and I’m hoping the cropped version will work well with my petite height and the full length go under my heels (which totally works with tall boots). 

DIPTYQUE CANDLE SET // I want this set every year and always find a reason not to buy it. But not this year! I love how beautiful the glass jars look styled throughout the house after the wax burns down. I have one in our bathroom currently that holds my lip gloss and eye cream – it looks so pretty!

VINCE CAMUTO KENTVI SANDAL // I own a black version similar to this sandal and wore them nonstop last year – literally nonstop. They are such a good transitional piece from Summer to Fall and look cute with shorts and a tee (I’m even wearing booties to shop the sale today – it seemed appropriate lol). 
DOLCE VITA TOBIN STUDDED BOOTIE // These booties are a little out of my regular “style” comfort zone but I’m really drawn to them. I love Dolce Vita and their shoes are always super comfy. They also come in cognac and white but I’m loving the look of the grey. I think they would look awesome with a babydoll dress or shorts and a tee!

CHARLOTTE TILBURY PALETTE // Okay, this will ABSOLUTELY SELL OUT! I’ve heard every blogger and her momma talk about this palette and for good reason… gorgeous! I can’t wait to get my hands on it so I can use it in a tutorial. 
CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIP KIT // This lip kit comes with my favorite lip liner Pillowtalk! It’s the only liner I’ve worn for weeks now and looks good on lots of different skin tones. It comes with two lip colors I believe are limited edition or brand new because I couldn’t find the shades online before the sale started. Two really good pinky neutrals!

TREASURE & BOND PANAMA FELT HAT // This hat is seriously a treasure, like the name implies. Y’all know I’ve been obsessed with a similar hat in a summer style the past couple months so I really want this one for fall. This color goes with EVERYTHING! And it also comes in black. 

Don’t forget you can shop A LOT more items via the drop-down menu at the top of the blog where it says Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 (you can also click for my sale guide).

Enjoy the sale and head back here for another sale post tomorrow!
