Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Complete Shopping Guide

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

The day has arrived.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 is finally here.  I apologize if I have been a little repetitive leading up but I know the Summer is pretty breezy with daily blog reading, so I wanted to make sure I got as many reminders out to all as I could.  Now, I have been updating you for a few weeks now.  Are you a cardholder yet?  If you are, the sale is live for you now.  I hate to say it but a lot of the must have pieces tends to sell out quickly.  If you aren’t a card holder, here is my suggestion.  Start building your shopping list and adding to the cart now.  When the sale goes live to the public (which is July 22nd), DO NOT HESITATE.  You know I’m thorough.  I went through every single page.  Yes I did.  Here are my top picks separated out into different categories.  My top pick, quick before they sell out like they are in stores is this pair of leopard lace up ballet flats, they run small so size up.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Complete Shopping Guide


This long sleeved dress is absolute perfection, especially the price point.  I am totally digging this zip up denim skirt here.  This staple dress in every single color.


The Under $50 Crew

This crossbody is the perfect city bag.  I am scooping up this duffel bag for travel.  These dark rinse skinnies will go with everything.  I use my Butter nail set every single day, I am buying two of these.


These dark skinnies, at this price point (under $60!).  Paige denim for half off here.  I pretty much live in my AG denim leggings, so I am adding these to my rotation (sizes always go first in these!).  With the stretch, size down.  Hudson has a great pair of charcoal denim jeans that are on my radar.  Topshop has a great pair of distressed skinnies here.  Rag & Bone skinnies are on my shopping list this sale.  They have a cult following for a reason.  I no lie live in my black riding leggings in the Fall, you won’t regret getting these.  They look so great tucked into a pair of riding boots.  Did you miss out out on the Zella leggings last year?  Well snag them now!  Such a great price point, the crops are less than $25!  How fab are these, Alo is where it is at.  We carry it at my studio and I adore the leggings.  These Spanx faux leather leggings were sold out EVERYWHERE last year, grab them now while you can.



Ponchos are back and in a big way, how fab is this one?  I did splurge on this Burberry jacket, I’ve been eyeing it for quite some time and I love that it has a hood.  The perfect basic grey long sleeve top here.  This leather biker jacket may be coming home with me.  This soft cashmere sweater for under $100.  This open drape jacket will be your favorite piece in your closet.  Hello live in sweater for the Fall.


You know my love for all things Joie and these fringe heels are going into my shopping cart.  I love that the fringe isn’t too loud and the heel is more petite.  Now, just to narrow it down….getting them in black or camel?  I am in love with this burgundy pair of lace up ballet flats.  The perfect heel for work.  These lace up heels are completely swoon worthy.  You will wear these all the time with dresses and jeans, aren’t they so pretty?



These Hunter boots are already in my cart.  Make sure to size down in them.  I wear a 9 but Hunters run large (like a whole size large).  Let’s talk about these fringed booties, they will go with everything.  The Rag & Bone Margot booties are always some of the first to sell out.  I live in my Vince Camuto over the knee boots.  My Toms booties are the most comfortable things I own, how fab is this open toe pair?  Tory Burch riding boots are the first things to always sell out.  These Vince Camuto booties for under $100 here.  These over the knee boots are supposed to rival the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots and they are a fraction of the cost.



True story.  Every anniversary sale, I stock up on the Volupsa candle three pack.  Then, I break them up for gifts throughout the year.  Or pick up the Nest candle set.  They are such a great value bundle.  YSL Black Opium perfume is my favorite Winter scent.  You know how much I love my YSL lip stains, the sets are top of my radar.  Remember my PMD review?  I still use it and you can snag it super discounted during this sale.  The Fresh Soy cleanser itself is basically the price of this kit, definitely getting it.  If you still haven’t pulled the trigger on a Clarisonic or a Luna yet, now is the time.  I have this toothbrush and love it.  You all know how much I love my YSL lip stains, picking up this set.



Now onto my favorite!  Accessories, makeup and sets.  Okay, how gorgeous is the color and quilting of this Tory Burch bag?  This Rebecca Minkoff bag, I guarantee it is going to sell out first.  It is the most perfect Fall bag and the price point!  This bucket bag for $30 here.  This bag is stunning.  It is a Chloe esque dupe but a great price point.  The sale has the color set in burgundy and red.  Gorgeous!  Move over Karen Walker, these sunnies are the next big wave.  The Rebecca Minkoff Vanity saddle bag is going to be the hottest seller.  That is top of my list.   I bought a pair of Ugg slippers from the last sale, they are the first things on my feet when I get home every night.  How gorgeous is this drop necklace?  Oh this bra looks like it will be the best staple.

    Ahhhhhhh I want alllllll the things. I am in love with the Rebecca Minkoff bag and basically want all the beauty things. Not too interested in clothes for me this sale…but maybe clothes for baby?!?!

  13. Anna says:

    Totally shared this on Twitter! I’m planning on picking up a new bra or 2, especially because the price point of a new bra usually scares me and these are such great deals! Also looking for non-over-the-knee black boots – OTK seems to be the thing and I’m just not sure it works for my size/height. It’s going to be really hard to narrow down what I want!
