today the nordstrom anniversary sale finally opens to the general public! it’s like christmas morning for shopping lovers everywhere and i’m SO excited to kick off the nordstrom anniversary sale with some fun posts and giveaways to treat you guys.
to start off, i wanted to put together a fun little roundup of some STAPLES of the nordstrom anniversary sale.
we all know there’s about a million cute things at the sale, but these items are amazing staples for closet, your beauty routine, or every day life. i picked these because they will make your life easier! things you’ll get at the nordstrom anniversary sale this year and use over and over and over all year long and you’ll pat yourself on the back for getting into your life AND scoring such a great deal on too.

1. zella live-in leggings: i’ve said it once and i’ll say it again! i LIVE in these suckers. and i like them just as well or even better than lululemon wunder unders PLUS these are $33.90 during the sale? are you kidding? lulu wunder unders start at $82 so, you do the math.
2. lush perfect tunic henley: if you only buy ONE SHIRT at the sale this year, let it be this one. perfect fit, a little loose but SUPER cute. $28.90
3. shawl collar open front cardigan: my favorite cozy sweater of the sale at a killer price. $31.90 (online only)
4. beautyblender makeup sponge set: throw out all your foundation brushes, this is the only one you need. i’ve never had makeup blend so flawlessly! and i use that bar soap cleanser daily to make sure my sponge is a clean canvas so trust me you want both. this thing WILL change your life. $22.95
5. hobo lauren clutch: best wallet in the whole wide world! these sold out so fast yesterday after i posted about them being 40% off, but you can still get an amazing deal during the nordstrom anniversary sale. $72.90
6. MAC look in a box – all about pink set: i kind of think HOT PINK is the new red lip! i’m seriously obsessed with this combo and i happily wore mine out of the store after sampling it at the makeup counter. all of the MAC sets are a steal during the nordstrom sale, this one is my favorite and i love that it comes with basic shadow colors and eyeliner that you’ll use over and over. $39.50.
7. marc by marc jacobs stainless steel aviator sunglasses: if you’ve never gotten yourself a nice pair of sunnies, be prepared to have your life altered. these are such a good deal too for marc jacobs!! $64.90 and so basic you can wear them with any outfit.
8. rag & bone the dre slim fit boyfriend jean: these will become your new favorite jeans! SO comfy and roomy. i have worn mine 3x (no lie!) in the past week. they define comfort on every level imaginable. $139.90
9. gym class crew neck sweatshirt and sweat pants: because you can’t wear skinny jeans and heels everywhere. and because VS sweats are about $100 a set. and because there’s nothing better than coming home from a long day and putting on your comfy cozies! $21.90 for the top and $24.90 for the bottoms. ps, i like to order regular size for the bottoms but super oversized for the tops! even more cozy.
10. frye philip riding boot: if you missed the frye boot deal i posted last week, this is for sure the best sale you’ll see for a very long time! and fryes last FOREVER. $259.90
11. philosophy purity made simple one-step facial cleanser duo: my favorite face wash of all time at a wicked good price. this will probably last you an entire year, and if you’re anything like me, you like having one at your bathroom sink and one in your shower. $52
12. MAC look in a box basic brush kit: yes i know i just told you that the beautyblender is all you need for foundation, but this set covers your eyes and has a great powder/bronzer/blush brush too! if you’ve ever wanted GOOD makeup brushes, this is an amazing set. $49.50
13. dogeared karma circle drop pendant necklace: if you need just a good, basic, dainty, every day necklace this one is perfect and super affordable. $29.90
14. neon nike frees: i cannot even adequately express how in love i am with these!! i bought the pink but i’m seriously tempted to get the neon yellow too, and i really think these will sell out fast in the cute colors. $66.90 – ps that’s almost half off for nike frees.
15. viktor & rolf flower bomb: this is my favorite perfume lately, but really if you need a new fragrance or you just ran out, NOW is the time to get it from the nordstrom anniversary sale fragrance selection. you’ll get a travel buddy and a large size for less than what you’d pay for a smaller bottle normally.
now for the GIVEAWAY!!! i really wanted to spread the love this time and so i’ll be surprising you guys with a new post and new giveaway EVERY DAY between now and next friday to celebrate the nordstrom anniversary sale!
i asked on my facebook and instagram whether you guys wanted fewer winners and bigger prizes, or more winners and smaller prizes, so i decided to do a mixture of both! today we’re going to have LOTS of winners to kick things off since majority rules 😉
