2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks
Top items I own from the sale with try on photos!
YAY! It’s here!!🥳🥳
The NSALE (Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) is traditionally a great time to snag fall wardrobe pieces as well as home, beauty and baby gear items at deeply discounted prices!
Personally, I’m not going to crazy with the sale this year, there are a few items on my wishlist, but I definitely have gone wild in the past when there were items our family needed/items I fell in love with!
This year thanks to the pre-sale preview Nordstrom offered I was able to sort through early and link up my top picks, I inked a combo of some year-after-year staples that I’ve invested in and stand by as well as some new pieces I think you guys would LOVE!
No try on this year either but I will hop on stories during public access day to show you guys some of the favorites I’ve snagged in the past!
Everything listed below are my tried and true hands down recommended sale picks, I included my top items I own from the sale with try on photos!

THE HOLY GRAIL FOR UNDER $65!!!!!
These are the BEST, no BS, they are so worth the hype! Super versatile and suck you in nicely. Highly recommend snagging these now for this price!
Check out THIS POST where I styled them multiple ways for fall!
The 2020 price is $14 cheaper than 2019, this is the lowest price I’ve ever seen WOOO!!
Oh just the coziest and softest cardigan you’ll ever feel! Seriously. Not kidding. If you have never felt the amazingness that is Barefoot Dreams, I am sorry friend, you are missing out!
Of all my BFD cardigans, I gravitate towards this one the most, I wear my normal size! Treat yourself you guys, this one is so worth it, especially being almost half price!
Soft and lightweight, this is the perfect cardigan for lounging around the house or running errands! Wearing my normal size, medium. Signature BFD softness and coziness!!
I LOVE these! They can be styled multiple ways and can be either casual or a little more dressy. I have nothing like this in my wardrobe but I can definitely see myself wearing these Fall through Spring. They are also superrrr comfy with a slight platform. I got my normal size!
Nordstrom Sale Picks: Home, Beauty & Baby Gear
SOFTEST ever and only $25! Plus they have a TON of colors to choose from! I have the light pink peony (of course haha) and white. Please, treat yourself to this luxury goodness )without the price tag) my friends!!
Lovelovelove this soft and dreamy blanket!
PRO TIP: If this blanket comes back into stock and you’ve been eyeing it, grab it in WHATEVER color they have! That’s what I did and I just plan on exchanging it for the color I actually wanted after the sale when it comes back fully into stock! Nordstrom is AMAZING with returns, even months later. It’s one of the reasons I’m a loyal customer!
Also pictured: Kennebunk blanket and heart pillow (sold out)
This diffuser is SO pretty, I love that it’s ceramic, it lights up if you want and it can diffuse for hourssssss!
This is my holy grail facial tool! The benefits of microneedling are profound and this kit is worth it because you are able to do it in your own home without the high price tag!
Don’t get me wrong, nothing beats a professional microneedling treatment, but we all can’t do those all the time and this at-home tool can help deliver the same benefits in the mean time!
Read more about the benefits of microneedling HERE! My own story is that I had horrible cystic acne and scars on my cheeks about five years ago. I tried everything, then as a last resort went for three treatments of microneedling at local medusa over the course of 6 months. Guys, my acned scars CLEARED UP. And has never come back! It was CRAZY!! Needless to say, I am a firm believer now and will never not use my GloPro!!
Legit wear these everyday, I have the rose gold!
I die over this bag each season, SO GOOD!!
I absolutely love NUNA carseats – not only are they safe (both structurally and fabric-wise, aka no harmful chemicals) but they’re also super sleek looking – pretty and functional just what I like! I know that’s probably not important to everyone but I won’t lie, I like a good looking car seat. But ALSO they are one of the safest brands on the market, we did a ton of research before investing in NUNA and I’m so happy that’s the brand we went with!
The NUNA infant car seat is also one of the safest out there and also it’s THE LIGHTEST (5.7lbs.).
Plus, check out how it gets secured (the base to floor metal leg in addition to the normal base). The metal leg that braces against the floor was a big factor that made me choose Nuna hands down, no other brand offered that extra safety feature!
I could talk for hours about NUNA but I won’t bore you, read about the awesome extra features on the product page!
Nordstrom Sale Picks: Wardrobe Staples
Slightly different leopard print for 2020 but also available in a blush pink which I love!
Mules are like fancy slippers IMO. You get the comfort of a slipper with classiness of a flat. Not to mention the convenience! Busy mom over here just needs to slip into the closest/fastest shoe knowwhatimean!?!
My IG fam LOVED these mules! Last year they sold out during early access and I was so bummed, snag them early for sure if you can!
Literally wear these everyday in the garden or at the farm and even through the winter! I love the half-calf style because they’re super easy to slip on and off and work with my slightly larger calves. On sale for freaking $89!
Slightly different cut for 2020 and only available in black but SO GOOD!
Another crowd favorite from my original try-on! And so many ways to style it so I consider it a wardrobe staple! Fit is TTS and I am wearing no-show undies but would also recommend Spanx!
Pictured above! These sneakers are SO versatile, they’re comfortable and they’re under $50. I feel like a cool mom in my Chucks haha. I got my normal size!
Because I can’t have too many plain tees, and this one is only $12.90! I grabbed it last year in four colors, it’s THAT GOOD. Comes in a ton of colors/prints and quality has been great even after multiple washes, fit is TTS.
This cardigan is a great dupe for the BFD long-lite one! Not as soft but definitely a similar look! I LOVED the color options and for half the price of the BFD cardigan/under $40 it’s a BIG win!
Zella is just one of those brands that is consistently reliable and high quality. The pieces I’ve owned for years have worn so well (meaning they haven’t really become “worn” despite the constant wearing!). This hoodie is exactly what it says – a go-to. It’s super light weight but made of that signature super-soft and stretchy Zella fabric. It’s such a great basic and the perfect addition to my wardrobe because I LIVE in these hoodies all year!
(hoping these go on sale during early access this year!)
I’ve owned Zella’s live-in leggings for a while now and even have their maternity leggings (and LOVE them, they’re also part of the sale🙌) but I’ve always wanted to try these straight leg pants. They did not disappoint, I’ll be wearing these nonstop this winter, they are SO soft and stretchy!
SO SOFT!! For real. And super lightweight so you can actually sleep in them. I’m in love! They also come in a short-sleeve nightgown version! For sure grabbing another set this year during the sale!
Nordstrom Sale Picks: Outerwear
Available in black only for 2020!
Fell in love with this trench and my IG crew confirmed that with their sweet comments! I’ve never owned a “big girl” trench so I decided to invest last year! Fit is TTS.
I love a good moto jacket and even better a good price! This one is awesome (faux suede!), fit’s really beautifully, I find it so flattering! And comes in a bunch of colors, went with my normal size- medium!
Available in black or kelly green for 2020!
Ok this one is definitely a hefty investment and one my my 2019 splurges! It’s so awesome though – gorgeous, high quality water-resistant material and functional as a rain jacket! The length is also great, it covers the butt!! I’ve always wanted a Barbour jacket and this one was love at first sight🥰 I went with a size 8 which is my normal dress size!
Slightly different look for 2020!
Tried these on in the store and they were insanely comfortable and not to mention GORGEOUS. I love the suede and the low heal, these are my pick for riding boots! I didn’t purchase these but I own one pair of Born boots and they are seriously the BEST!
