The Nordstrom Sale officially kicks off today! Therefore I’m sharing all the best items included in the sale – 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale BEST ITEMS: Jeans, Sweaters, Coats, & Shoes.
Today is the day! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially opens for early access at 12:30pm EST today. While I have to say I wasn’t incredible impressed by the sale when viewing their catalog – I am now thinking it is one of their best ones yet! Lots of really great basics and pieces you can wear for years to come. This year (similar to last year) I am all about quality over quantity. Meaning I want to find a few pieces to invest in vs. buying everything because I “need” it. Therefore, my content covering the sale will focus on pieces that can be worn in several seasons (get the most wear for your buck) or can be worn year after year – never going out of style.
I’m 100% not going to be telling you that you need everything or that you just absolutely MUST have this. Unless I truly, truly mean it and I’ll only say it about one or two pieces. Otherwise, they’re suggestions or items I think are great buys if that’s the piece you’re looking for. As I know we are all probably looking for something a little different.
In today’s post, I’m highlighting top categories (the BEST of the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) that I personally typically shop as well as ones y’all voted for via the polls I shared on Instagram stories. So hopefully you’ll find these collages + product picks helpful and that y’all love these pieces! I’ve put a heart next to my personal favorites. Earlier this week Ishared my top ten picks from the sale as well.
This morning I am shopping the sale in store so I will be sharing some fitting room try on sessions on Instagram stories later today or first thing tomorrow morning. Then check back here Monday for a full breakdown of everything I tried on – sizing, fit, recommendation, whether I brought it home, and all that!

Denim is always a great item to purchase during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Because let’s be honest, come fall + winter a great pair of jeans is what we reach for more times than not. Therefore, it is usually one of the first departments I check out. This year there are SO many great styles from Madewell – my personal favorite. They’re all under $100 while the sale is happening. Personal top picks: Madewell High Waist Slim Boyjean Boyfriend Jeans (during sale $84.90, after sale $128.00) and Madewell Ripped 10-Inch High Waist Crop Skinny Jeans (during sale $84.90, after sale $128.00). I purchased the latter pair in December of last year and that’s when the love affair with Madewell began – SO GOOD! See them styled for brewery hopping and a day in NYC.

The item I get most excited about come fall – cozy sweaters! Again, I think the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to pick up basics like sweaters. Especially if you’re up for investing a little – you can get a high quality sweater at a great price prior to the season kicking off. There are several really great ones in this years sale – lots of fabulous pullovers and Madewell is bringing the A-game with the cardigans. My number one pick though comes from Free People, it’s their Softly Structured Knit Tunic (during sale $98.90, after sale $148.00). A great sweater to wear a dress with otk boots, leggings + sneakers for a casual look, or jeans and your favorite loafers. Super versatile!
1. Pendleton Glacier Sunset Water Resistant Fleece Coat (during sale $129.90, after sale $200.00) |2. Something Navy Single Breasted Plaid Wool Blend Topper (during sale $99.90, after sale $159.00) | 3. Free People So soft Teddy Coat (during sale $98.90, after sale $148.00) | 4. Sam Edelman Double Breasted Trench Coat (during sale $146.90, after sale $220.00)| 5. BlankNYC Faux Fur Teddy Coat (during sale $64.90, after sale $98.00) | 6. Bernardo Double Face Wrap Coat (during sale $129.90, after sale $200.00)
If a new coat is on your fall/winter wish list, again the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a great opportunity to scoop one up. However, if you’re not, I would say skip this section – definitely more of a splurge/investment so it isn’t worth getting sucked into if you don’t really need a new one!
However, if you’re wanting a fun new coat that’s budget friendly, this Faux Fur Teddy Coat from BlankNYC will be under $65 during the sale! And if you are looking to invest in a quality coat that’ll be in style for years to come, I would go for this chic Double Breasted Trench Coat from Sam Edelman or this blue Double Face Wrap Coat beauty from Bernardo.
sneakers + flats: Ugg Abies Perforated Slip-On Platform Sneaker (during sale $64.90, after sale $99.00) | Treasure & Bond Rainey Mule (during sale $59.90, after sale $89.00) | Marc Fisher Zurri Pointy Toe Loafer (during sale $99.90, after sale $149.00)
boots: Hunter Original Refined Chelsea Waterproof Rain Boot (during sale $94.90, after sale $145.00) |Madewell Brenner Bootie (during sale $139.90, after sale $210.00) | Sam Edelman Welles Bootie (during sale $99.90, after sale $159.00) | Hunter Tour Packable Waterproof Rain Boot (during sale $99.90, after sale $150.00) | Frye Melissa Knotted Tall Boot (during sale $249.90, after sale $397.00) | Sam Edelman Hiltin Knee High Boot (during sale $149.90-164.90, after sale $224.00-249.00) | Marc Fisher Arletta Over the Knee Boots (during sale $159.90, after sale $239.00)
Shoes are my weakness come the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I always walk out with at least two pairs. Usually one pair of sneakers and one pair of flats or booties. This year I’m focusing on a pair of neutral loafers – the only really footwear need for my fall wardrobe. I’m 99% certain the Zurri Pointy Toe Loafer from Marc Fisher will be the pair coming home with me but we will see.
If you’ve been eyeing Hunter Rain Boots for awhile, their Tour Packable Waterproof Rain Boot will be a little over $50 off during the sale. And their Original Refined Chelsea Waterproof Rain Boot, which are so adorable, will be as well.
Similarly with Frye boots – those things are pricey!!! Therefore, if you’ve found yourself swooning over them for quite some time and have thought about pulling the trigger, now is the time. They’ll be almost $150 off during the sale – on their Melissa Knotted Tall Boot. That to me is one of those true deals and a great investment piece. Frye boots last for ever and only look better the more you wear them.
