In a hurry? Go straight to my picks below!


Ummm sneakers under $50? YES. PLEASE. Usually buying a pair of really affordable sneakers means you're sacrificing quality, but not with these!!! I was so surprised to find these perfectly rated sneaks for only $49.90.

Kiiind of felt like I was being punked when I read that price tag along with the reviews, but they're the real deal! Regularly these shoes are $80, but thanks to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 price, you can get them for a KILLER deal right now.

These sneakers come in four super cute neutral colors, including the cutest pink that I was SUPER tempted to buy… I ended up getting the white because they were a little more practical, and I knew I would wear them more, but the pink is seriously SO cute, too!

My other favorite pair of sneakers from the sale this year are the P448s that I talked about in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shoe post – but if they're out of your price range, these sneakers are a GREAT alternative at such a crazy affordable price. They're also super, super comfortable and run true to size.

These are the perfect neutral sneakers you can add to any outfit with jeans, a skirt, joggers, pretty much anything. I really, really love these – their versatility and price are TOPS.

$29 mom jeans!!!

Oh hello $29 mom jeans. I am FREAKING out over these!!!

But first, the BACK STORY: when I first tried these on (while trying on ALL the jeans from the Anniversary Sale) I did not love them at all. I tried on my normal size & a size up, and they were just really uncomfortable and unflattering (camel toe no thank youuuu).

HOWEVER, I'm always continuing my research throughout the sale and analyzing reviews of what everyone is buying, and these were coming in with super, super high reviews which totally threw me. I was curious enough to go back to Nordstrom to try them on again. I grabbed one size up, and then I grabbed two sizes up, and two sizes up was the golden ticket. I LOVED them!!!

These jeans, like a lot of other things from the BP. brand, run really, really small. So if you're thinking about buying these I would suggest buying two sizes up. Once I did that they truly fit perfectly – exactly how you would expect jeans of this style to fit. A baggy, super comfy, relaxed mom-jean kind of fit.

I seriously can't stop raving about these now that I got them in the right size! They are SUPER comfortable, really, really cute, and the 2021 jean style that everyone's looking for right now. (But at the MOST affordable price!!!)

I'm serious – these jeans are $29 right now. Grab them while your size is still in stock!!!

Rib sweater

This cute sweater is definitely a new fave of mine! It's a nice crop fit, but not so cropped that your belly button is showing. Especially if you're wearing high-waisted jeans, this sweater is the perfect length! I love love love the look of it, especially in this gorgeous, neutral oatmeal color – but it also comes in black, red, or brown.

If you like to add a new, really soft, staple sweater to your closet every cold weather season, I promise you that you will LOVE this one!! Especially at it's crazy affordable $39.90 price point (regularly $60!!).

My FAVE – this Brixton hat!

Okay – probably my most favorite item in this whole outfit!!! I've always loved Brixton hats, and this Joanna Straw Hat is one that I own in a few colors because I love it so so much. I'm especially in love with this vanilla shade!

This color is perfect for the rest of the summer months, but also perfect for transitioning into a neutral, fall style. I am definitely a white, cream, and tan dresser in the fall, and I'm so excited to add this hat to SO many of my outfits this year!

If you don't have a cute hat in your wardrobe yet, I seriously can't recommend this one more! Especially for bad hair days… I never thought I could feel fabulous on a bad hair day, but after wearing Brixton hats it's changed my “bad hair day” game forever!

Not to mention – usually, Brixton hats like this are $55, but for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this hat is only $35.90!! That's a crazy amazing deal on such a high quality accessory. And don't forget you can only get this hat for $20 off for one more week!

Faux leather tote

Alright – confession here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 has completely SOLD OUT of all bags under $50… SUCH a bummer! BUT, I did try out this bag and although it's not on sale and it's $51, it was TOO GOOD to not include in this post!

The faux leather this bag is made of is extremely, extremely soft – it seriously feels like real leather! It's absolutely gorgeous, and comes in three different colors. I'm obsessed with the taupe because I think it looks so pretty with neutrals including cream, white, and tan – but the brown is a really great fall staple, too. And of course I love all things pink so the blush is definitely a fave as well!

A $51 bag that legit feels like real leather?! I was sold SO fast on this one!

I do have to say: one reviewer wrote that the bag ripped, so I would caution you that if you buy this bag you DON'T want to weigh it down with 50 lbs of stuff. You would want to use it for items like a light sweater, phone, wallet, keys – not for anything extremely heavy like a laptop for example. It's a really nice medium-sized bag, so as long as you don't weigh it down with ultra-heavy stuff it's super versatile!

This bag has LOTS of great pockets on the inside & outside as well! I'm super excited about it and can't wait to wear it all year round. Again, this bag looks like a designer, real leather bag, but it's only $51. IT'S SO GOOD!
