Hi friends! In addition to style, I think y’all see me as a valuable resource for travel over any other vertical I cover. With that said, I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite travel items that are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The best thing about stocking up on staple travel items during Nordstrom sale is, of course, that you’ll get a discount but they are less likely to be sold out because I feel like not as many people are vying for them the way they are clothing for themselves, their husband or their kids. So, here we go! Here are my five favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale travel picks! 


nordstrom anniversary sale travel luggage

Nordstrom 20-Inch Spinner Carry-On

I purchased the Nordstrom hard case luggage set last year and used it on a few trips. The set is currently sold out but the carry-on bag isn’t. I am actually using it on this current trip to Miami. It has really handled being thrown around between planes and airports well so far, so it’s safe to say it’s Alyson Haley approved!

Original Price: $139.00 | Sale Price: $103.90

nordstrom anniversary sale travel long champ la pliage tote



Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir Leather Tote

If you’ve followed me for a long time, you know that I have a deep love for Longchamp Totes. I have accumulated quite a few since my love for them began my junior year of college. I placed my order for this pink one included in the Nordstrom Sale but have yet to receive it. I will let you know what I think about quality once it arrives but, I need you to take a look at the price. It is certainly one of the best deals of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that I have found! This is a really high quality bag! 

Original Price: $530.00 | Sale Price: $354.90

Athleisure Items

There’s only a few things worse than getting on a long flight in something you’re uncomfortable in. You’re already uncomfortable sitting in a small space and potentially talking to strangers you want nothing to do with so I always think these sales are a great time to stock up on comfortable items, like athleisure pieces, that could work well for the gym or while you’re in the air!

Here are some that I really like from the sale:

S’well Insulated Water Bottle

It’s so important to stay hydrated when you’re flying. A great way to do that while also being conscious of the environment is by opting to purchase an insulated water bottle that you can wash out and refill, as needed. S’well products during the sale are a really great deal right now and they keep your drinks hot and / or cold for a long time!

There are a few other styles available from the sale HERE and HERE.

Original Price: $35.00 | Sale Price: $22.90


nordstrom anniversary sale travel herschel bag

Herschel Travel Tote

I’ve clicked in to check out many products by this brand over the past couple of years but have never pulled the trigger on trying any of them out for myself. On the first day of Early Access, I saw this tote bag came in a couple of colors and told myself to go back and grab it. I always opt for pink so I was kind of glad that, when I did, it wasn’t available for me to be tempted by. Black is such a great color to opt for when it comes to travel bags because you really just have no idea what you’ll be exposed to during your travel days!

This bag is spacious and roomy! I love the rounded top, which allows you to pack in just a couple more things 😉 #canyoutellimachronicoverpacker And, the price is impressive considering how much space this has for your belongings, how sturdy the straps are, how many small small storage pockets there are on the outside, etc. I think you get a lot for what you’re paying for!

Original Price: $80.00 | Sale Price: $53.90

I also think it’s worth mentioning that two of the little travel jewelry cases that I use are also included in the sale! I reviewed them both in THIS post from a few months ago! 🙂 

Hope you’re enjoying the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! What do you want to see next from me? Beauty or Home? Weigh in below and I’ll try and it to you soon! 

Don’t forget! Public Access starts on Friday! I’ll have a full roundup of my favorites from the sale with new try-on images and reviews on products I purchased at the beginning of Early Access and have finally received in the mail! What are y’all hoping is restocked? Let me know in the comments below! xo.

I’m most hoping for restocks in some of the sweaters and coats! Those are what I’m looking at most and what I would love to have ready for fall (at a discounted price 🙂 )

    Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate all of your work on the N Sale. I’ve gotten such great pieces based on your recommendations. I’m sure it’s not always fun to do, but it really is helpful, especially for those of us without a Nordstrom in our state.
