Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Pre-Sale Picks + Info

Hello, my loves! Happy Monday!

Believe it or not … we are less than two weeks away from the launch of the the biggest sale of the year, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019! If you are in need of one large scoop of information filling you in on what you need to know for this years’ sale, you’re in luck! I have compiled a little Q&A on this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale page that should help get you up to speed and ready to tackle this beast of a sale head on! If you have any other questions, though, you can leave them in the comments here or there and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

HEADS UP! SIGN UP for my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale newsletter for exclusive updates + giveaway opportunities!

Since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale page clears up all of those basic questions, I thought I’d focus a little more on what’s going to be included in the sale here in today’s post. A couple of weeks ago, Nordstrom released the sale’s catalog, which gives us a first look at what we can expect to see included in the sale. Today, I’m going to highlight ten of the items that I will be grabbing for first when I shop the sale next week.

OKAY … so, let’s get started. Something to remember about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as you’re digesting this list of products is that this sale marks down brand new Fall merchandise. I chose the following products to share with you today because they’re all items I was drawn to and like, but also I have a feeling that they will be hot-selling items that you may want to try and score first!

With that in mind … I encourage you to implement the following ‘pro-tip’:

PRO TIP: If you are shopping the sale next Friday, for Early Access, be sure to come to today’s post to snag the items you want from my list as the big Early Access post will take some time to complete once the sale is live [and the links are then available to pull and place into the post]. The team and I are hoping that post will be up by 1:30pm EST – an hour after the sale goes live, although we will strive for earlier than that! – however, coming to THIS POST first will provide you with a way to get the following items without having to wait on me! I’m pretty sure these links will work once the sale is live.

striped sweater in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019


If there’s something that shopping the last five years has afforded me is the knowledge that the brand Halogen makes one of the softest sweaters you’ll ever come across. This sweater is a great under $50 purchase that will be available in quite a few color options this year. I especially love the colors in this striped version. I can almost guarantee this one will sell out so I would definitely make sure to come back to this post on Friday to snag it before it does!



heeled sandal in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019


This sandal is, essentially, the newer version of the Tonya Open Toe Mule that was included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year. If I think these are cuter but I’m hoping they’re just as comfortable as the Tonya’s! I expect they’ll be a hit again. I know I’ll be getting the beige color [instead of black and yellow] because .. well, Chips got my beige Tonya’s last year. They’ll go with so many outfits and will transition nicely from Summer to Fall.



corduroy mini skirt in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019BP. CORDUROY MINISKIRT

A corduroy mini-skirt is one of my favorite things to wear during the Fall season. It’s the perfect pairing with a chunky knit sweater and over-the-knee boots. While I already have an almost identical miniskirt from last year, I can’t wait to try on this cutie to help you decide if this is a good option for yours! I’m hoping there are a lot of sizing options. I love the style of it, especially for under $35!

I also have a crush on this little number, which I found during my digging as it’s not featured in the catalog! You’re welcome!


sleepwear in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019


I’ve purchased a few different sets of these pajamas over the last few years and they are easily some of my favorites. They tend to run big, I do know that, so size down but what I love about them is that the material is so soft and insanely comfortable to sleep in! I’m not sure how many color options they’ll come in for the sale but, I expect it’ll be quite a few and I’d recommend grabbing a couple of different sets if you’re able! You will seriously want to wear them every night!



adidas sneakers in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019


I don’t know about y’all but the last couple of years … I just feel like cute sneakers that also fit great have been really hard to come by. I am slightly obsessed with the white version of these and am really hoping I can get my size in them. With Adidas sneakers, you always want to go down at least half a size. If you can, try them on in the store just to see for sure what size works for you. I may have to go down a full size but … I will give y’all my recommendation in the blog post I share on July 12th!



madewell cardigan in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019MADEWELL RYDER CARDIGAN

This cardigan is always always ALWAYS a hot ticket item during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I believe it’s been in the sale for the last two years and it’s seriously everyone’s favorite. The silhouette is perfect, the material is thick and warm, and there are always really great color options. If you missed the lavender color last year, it’s being included in this years’ sale again. It has an oversized fit so keep that in mind when choosing your size. I typically go one size down in Madewell. One more thing … do NOT wait on this item. I can guarantee at least a couple of colors will be sold out by the time Public Access launches.


zella leggings in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019ZELLA SUNRAY HIGH-WAISTED ANKLE LEGGINGS

Zella makes some of my favorite activewear pieces, most especially their leggings! I always love that Zella leggings are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and especially love that they’re including a pink pair this year! Y’all know my love for pink … and these are the prettiest blush color that will transition beautifully from Summer to Fall. They’ll go great with light white and grey for this time of year and beige and brown’s in the Fall. I always go one size down in these so highly recommend you do the same if you’ve never tried them! 🙂


cowl neck sweater in nordstrom anniversary sale 2019CHELSEA28 COWL NECK SWEATER

Oh, those classic cowl neck sweaters … they always make me swoon and thirst for the cooler Fall weather. This one looks so yummy, slightly oversized, and comfortable! It comes in a few different color options and I think I may be snagging this one in two color options, the beige and cognac. The price is just too good. I will give y’all size recommendations when I try it on! Stay tuned to my post on July 12th for more insight! This might be the item I’m MOST excited to try on when I shop the sale next week.



While I truly believe Nordstrom keeps all the best products of the sale under wraps until the Early Access launch, I do think this one looks like it could be one of the best selling booties of this years’ sale! It’s so classic! If you’re needing a new pair of classic booties, these are the ones you need to go for! I love the beige color, personally! I usually go with my normal size in BP. shoes but, stay tuned to my Early Access post for an official size recommendation.

SALE PRICE: $69.90 | AFTER SALE PRICE: $109.95



I have a feeling this skirt won’t have a large inventory on the back end so, if you’ve been looking for something like this, as I have, I would RUN during Early Access to get it! I’m not sure what sizing is going to be like but I have my fingers crossed for petite and regular sizing. If I get to snag this skirt, I will be pairing it with band tee’s, sneakers, and chunky knit sweaters. The options are endless! I am seriously obsessed with this leopard print item.

SALE PRICE: $78.90 | AFTER SALE PRICE: $119.00

And that’s it for today, lovelies! There are actually a few more of my picks from the catalog on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 page so be sure to check them out! Can’t wait to share more about the sale next week! In the meantime, leave me any questions you may have in the comments below and I’ll be sure to get back to you before the sale starts!

HEADS UP: The NuFace device I talked about yesterday will be apart of the sale but I don’t have access to the product page just yet! But, yay! That’s exciting!

Before I go, be sure to stay tuned to IG stories today as it’s July 1st and I’m kicking off my July giveaways today! I’ll be giving y’all details on the first one today at noon EST on Instagram! Thanks for stopping by today! xo.

    I’m confused that you said it goes live at 12:30 PM est… doesn’t it start early in the morning July 12th? Last year I remember shopping online at like 4am opening day while I was up pumping breastmilk lol.

    Great finds. Could use another sandal or two on sale. I love the Tonya open toe mule so much last summer I ended up buying one in red and black. That cordoroy skirt is a possibility too. Hope you have a happy and fun July 4th.
