Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Try On Haul: The Ultimate Guide to this year’s sale!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 in-store early access try-on and my top picks from the sale
I have to admit I do love me some Nordstrom and I also love a good sale! So Nordstrom’s anniversary sale is one of my favorites of the entire year. You can snag BRAND NEW fall pieces at pretty discounted prices – booties, denim, cardigans/sweaters, coats, accessories, athletic wear – all NEW styles to fill your fall wardrobe!
AND many of the brands are some of my FAVORITE big names, so I especially like to save on these or invest in something I’ve had my eye on.
Click the brand name below to be taken to the respective sale pages for each. Sometimes I find it’s easier for me to shop this way!
There are also great deals on items for the home, baby/kid’s stuff, and beauty products as well. I’ll be covering all of these categories over the next few weeks!
I spent a few hours yesterday in-store putting together a (hopefully) helpful try-on because I know not all of you have a store near you! My store of course did not have everything (I don’t think any store does!) but I have also included some extra picks at the bottom of this post. I’ll also be making an online order this week and doing a try on of those things at home, stay tuned!
As far as my purchases this year I tried to take it slow and be superrrr thoughtful. I actually invested in A LOT last year, so truth be told I really didn’t need much this year! I went for quality pieces that I knew I would wear a ton, as well as a few investment pieces I can keep wearing year after year. Plus I FINALLY scooped up this Barefoot Dreams Blanket I’ve been eyeing for two years now!
PS: Nordstrom always has FREE SHIPPING & FREE RETURNS!
Their customer service is top notch and a big reason why I love shopping with them!!

My Approach to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019
I’m a pretty casual person, I don’t really stray far from my comfort zone of comfy tees, neutral colors, cozy fabrics, and mom-friendly everything! I look for versatility – “capsule” items I can style multiple ways/things I can dress up or dress down, wear for a few seasons, etc.; I look for value – something I will get a lot of use out of through several years and seasons; I look for practicality – pretty and useful! That’s how I like my purchases haha. And I look for worth – is the item actually a good deal considering the sale price, but would I also invest in this item even if it was not on sale. AKA am I really scoring an awesome deal on something I love?
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Sizing Info
I am 5’8″ and typically wear a medium, 8 or 29 as far as sizes go. My body shape is curvy/hourglass/athletic shape, and I am a 34D bra size or large. I also have broad shoulders (swimmer life), muscular thighs and wide feet (size 9 in shoes).
Unless I note otherwise, I am wearing my normal size in all pieces!
About My Links
Items in this post (and in most of my posts here on the blog) are affiliate links. This means I am affiliated with the retailer and make a small commission when an item is purchased “through” my link (aka when you click on it). This does not affect the price you pay AT ALL. You do not pay any extra by clicking on an affiliate link! The small commission I make from a purchase helps me make a living and helps my family pay the bills just like any other job.
One thing to note about links is that if you are on mobile and it opens in-app the purchase does not get linked back to me. No big deal, I totally understand and LOVE the convenience of apps myself! But I do get this question and wanted to clarify.
I just want to take a sec to say THANK YOU! Thank you for taking the time to read my post and support my family and I, it is so so appreciated more than you will ever know!!

Outfit details are linked at the bottom of each photo. CLICK THE WORDS (ex. “COAT”) UNDER THE PHOTO TO SHOP EACH ITEM!
NSALE Coat Try-On
Barbour Jacket ($220)
I grabbed this jacket!! I fell in love with the color and I can see myself wearing it all fall! Size down one!
Barbour Oversized Rain Coat ($253)
LOVE this coat! It’s very oversized, I am wearing one size down from my normal here and it’s still huge but that’s the fit!
North Face Hooded Parka ($240)
This is a GREAT option if you’re looking to invest in a moto jacket, very worth the price in my opinion, comes in a few colors also! Below is a photo of the slightly higher-priced BlankNYC one that I own and is also part of the sale again this year! I am wearing my normal size in both!
BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket ($125)
From last year but part of the sale again this year in gray and light brown!
This was one of my investment pieces from last year and I have already gotten much more than my money’s worth out of it! I love the length, I love that it’s super lightweight and I love that it keeps me warm! I didn’t get it purposely for traveling but being so lightweight it was awesome for that! I wore it everyday as my winter coat and it’s ThermoBall technology kept me super warm during our cold NY winter. I plan on wearing it again this winter!
Nordstom Sale 2019 Sweaters & Cardigans
I forgot to take a photo of myself in THIS Caslon sweater/tunic but it was the first one in my story try on! Great sweater that I could see myself wearing all fall and winter. It’s nice and long so you could definitely pair it with leggings! It’s oversized but I like the way the medium fits me, you could size down one if you wanted though! The fabric is super soft and stretchy like cashmere!
Wearing a s/m in the cardigan, this is my FAVORITE of all the Barefoot Dreams cardigans! CLICK HERE for my post on styling the Leith dress multiple ways! For sure a closet staple in my book!
NSALE Tees, Tops & Dresses
Lace Trim Cami ($26) – comes in a bunch of colors!!
I purchased these items last year during the sale as investment pieces! All fit TTS!
If you are looking for a great pair of leggings I highly recommend the Zella Live-In High-Waist Leggings ($39)!
NSALE Shoes & Boots
Madewell Mules ($55)
OBSESSED. These will sell out, I cannot believe the price!!
Ugg Slip-On Sneaker ($65)
Love these, anything slip-on is life when you’re a busy mom! These one in a few colors and fit TTS, the perforated detail and slight platform I think are really beautiful and for Ugg the price point is great! I did not grab these only because I own a super similar pair by Steve Madden, but I have to admit I like the perforated detail on these better than my plain ones and these are CHEAPER! Haha I should have waited for the sale!)
These are my riding boots of choice for the sale! Born is an incredible company, very high quality, so for $160 I think these are a steal. They also fit perfectly around my big calves with room to spare sooo SCORE! And I tried on the regular, NOT the wide calf (but the option is there if needed). I just love the two-tone of the different textures, the inside is cool, the heel is perfect and they are comfortable. Checks everything off my list!
Vince Camuto Perforated Bootie ($99)
Love this color bootie, it is so versatile for the fall! I have a similar pair that I wore ALL the time last year! The heel height is 2″ which is perfect for everyday wear. This would be a closet staple in my opinion!
I found another SUPER similar pair that is also part of the sale for under $60! CLICK HERE!
Steve Madden Loafers ($59)
Snake print is in! I can handle it in a small/sbutle shoe like these and I thin they would work well in my wardrobe because most of my clothes are neutral/non-patterened. So adding a pop or color or pattern to your shoe is a good way to spruce up any look. These were a little tight on me so I sized up a 1/2 size, and they come in a bunch of colors/patterns!
Vince Camuto Bootie ($99)
These are SO sleek and chic! I’m obsessed!! I love that the toe is a little more narrow and they come in a bunch of colors/patterns! Snake print is in for this season but I don’t think I’m quite there yet to fully invest in a snake print boot haha. But I do love this color (foxy suede) and the black! I did not snag these even though they are my top bootie pick of the sale, only because I own a SUPER similar pair from last year!
Adidas Sneaker ($64)
LOVE these sneaks! I own them in a lighter color but I’m digging the copper stripes! They fit TTS and are super comfy, I wore them while hiking the volcano in Maui and they are my sneaker of choice for everyday use. This is the cheapest I have seen them and I’ve kept my eye on them!!
These are gorgeous! If you have somewhere nice to wear them I would definitely recommend. The arch/heel is a bit high for me but I love the style and they were comfortable as far as heels go!
These are CUTE. I don’t own anything like them but I’ve been eyeing the style since last year so when I saw the price I scooped them right up! This brand is fully waterproof which is convenient, the hidden wedge is super subtle (I didn’t even notice it at first!) and they fit TTS!
Cheaper, SUPER similar option linked HERE! (Under $50 by Caslon!)
Hunter Mid-Calf Boots $89 (reg. $140!!)
I highly recommend investing in Hunters if you’ve been eyeing them! THESE are my absolute favorite pair I’ve ever owned – they are durable, functional (I use them in the garden, on the farm and whenever it rains or snows!) and they’re cute! Plus I LOVE the mid-calf height because I have wider calves and these fit awesome, there’s a little room around my legs which is so much more comfortable. For Hunter you cannot beat this price, it’s rare to see ANY styles under $100 let alone one as cute as this!
PHEW thanks for bearing with me through that you guys! Below are shoppable images separated by category, they include try on items plus some extra favorite I saw while browsing online!
If you scroll all the way down I have all the try on pieces in one place as well. I hope this helps, happy shopping guys!!
