I can’t believe it’s only five days until the first round of shoppers can start accessing The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’ve said it so many times, but it’s my favorite time of the year (aside from the obvious, Christmas). This year there are some really great basics like denim and cozy loungewear, plus some extra accessories like sunglasses and hats. Below you’ll find eleven of my must-haves.. items I’ll be buying and predict to be popular.


Tom Ford Georgina 57mm Gradient Lens Square Sunglasses

ON SALE $263.90 | later $395

I can’t wait to try on these sunnies! I’ve always wanted a pair of Tom Ford frames and love this color way. The gold and tan goes perfectly with my color palette for fall.


Frame Ripped High Waist Raw Hem Crop Skinny Jeans

ON SALE $146.90 | later $220

I tried Frame denim for the first time during last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and was hooked. I love that they make lots of options with an inseam under 27″, perfect for all my petites! A great pair of distressed skinnies are a staple for fall.


Tory Burch Carson Convertible Leather Crossbody Bag

ON SALE $299.90 | later $498

This was the first item on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wishlist! I immediately looked for a Tory Burch bag and love this style. It’s big enough to fit all of the essentials but can also be worn as a crossbody or over the shoulder.


Thread & Supply Wubby Colorblock Fleece Pullover

ON SALE $45.90 | later $78

This was a no-brainer. The wubby pullover is a must-have every sale season and this one could not be cuter. I love that they used a colorblock design and added a little leopard (and we all know I can’t pass up on that!).


1.State Cozy Knit Top

ON SALE $38.90 | later $59

I was so excited this top was included in the sale. I own it in white and this color in a different material already and have to have this one too! It’s my favorite fall color and the fit is amazing. It’s such a versatile piece that will take you from late summer all the way through to winter.


MAC Mini Lipglass Trio


I’ve become pretty picky about my beauty buys but this gloss trio caught my eye right away. I love the variety of pinks and nudes perfect for everyday wear.


Steve Madden Forever Chain Pointed Toe Mule

ON SALE $49.90 | later $89.95

I feel like the Steve Madden mule has become a staple of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Last year they debuted something similar but this year’s version with the chain detailing is even better!


Treasure & Bond Snakeskin Print Trim Wide Brim Wool Panama Hat

ON SALE $38.90 | later $59

I will pretty much buy ALL of the hats this year! Last year they went so fast, especially the snake print. I love that this one is a different color way than any other I own. The perfect accessory!


Clare V. Simple Leopard Print Suede Tote

ON SALE $299.90 | later $540

I am in loveee with this tote bag by Clare V. It comes with a black and white striped strap so that you can also wear it over the shoulder. This brand of bag is always high-quality and this bag in particular will look amazing paired with a basic black top and jeans!


Sam Edelman Derika Leather Boot

ON SALE $149.90 | later $239.95

A pair of tan suede knee-high boots is a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale essential. The pair I bought last year got more wear than any other shoe I own. They pair well with so many outfits.. dresses, skirts, jeans, and leggings!


Barefoot Dreams In The Wild Throw Blanket

ON SALE $119.90 | later $180

This item probably needs no explanation. The Barefoot Dreams blanket is hands down the most popular Nordstrom Anniversary Sale item every single year. They go like hotcakes (seriously, don’t hesitate) and this year they added new colors! I will probably buy three, including the new caramel color and black & white.

Happy Wishlist Making!
