Teen/tweens are probably my #1 MOST requested, and more difficult-to-buy-for group for back to school, gift guides, Anniversary Sale guides – you name it! People are always baffled by tweens and teens, including ME.
I’ve experienced this more with Anabelle – and I feel like, well, she doesn’t really fit into the little girls’ department anymore, but she’s not old enough for the women's department yet, she’s like right in between. BUT I'm thrilled that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has some really good “Big Girl” options this year, so here's your quick guide to shopping for all the teens/tweens in your life!
In a hurry? Go straight to my picks below!

Waffle Knit Set
This waffle knit matching set was such a great pick for Anabelle, in fact I’m kind of tempted to get her a second one! She is CRAZY picky when it comes to things being really comfortable, and she was willing to wear this (so that's saying A LOT!!) Plus, I thought it was SUPER cute on her. Win-win for the both of us!
This set comes in a two different colors – rust and a heather grey (which is what Ani chose). It's on sale for a really good price – $43.90 (Orig. $66), which is basically as if you were paying like $20 for the top and $20 for the bottom. A really good deal in my opinion!
This set is high-quality and I already know this fabric is going to be super long-lasting. When I originally found this, I was wondering if the front twist was going to show her belly, but it totally doesn't which she and I both love.
Chuck Taylor Sneakers
Anabelle has always LOVED Chuck Taylor sneakers. She’s had a pair every school year for the past several years and she just wears them to death! Not only do her feet grow enough to need a new pair every year, but they’re usually absolutely thrashed at the end of the school year. I don’t even think about saving them for hand-me-downs, because they get worn SO much AND they last her the whole school year!
I thought these ones were especially cute because they have little rose gold grommets on them, and a rose gold sparkly Converse logo on the top too!
These are on sale for $26.90 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and they're usually $40. So cute, so comfortable, such a great price, and tweens/teens LOVE them! The perfect staple in their closet that can go with almost any outfit!
Tween/Teen shopping made easy!
The tween/teen years are a hard age because they don’t want to wear little girl stuff anymore, but they’re also not quite ready for the really big girl stuff! I’m always really pleasantly surprised with Nordstrom’s teen and tween selection, and this year they have some really cute items in their Sale. We've rounded up all of our favorite tween/teen outfits below! Happy shopping!
