This year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – girls edition

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just never disappoints, and this year is no different. These are two super cute outfit ideas I got for both of my girls, with pieces that can be easily mixed and matched so they’ll be getting lots of mileage out of them in the coming year.

And PS: if you have a tween/teen at home, did you know Nordstrom actually has a super handy Young Adults section that’s FULL of age appropriate and super cute options for that kinda tricky in between stage of life to shop for!

Tween Picks

Teen/tweens are probably my #1 MOST requested, and more difficult-to-buy-for group for back to school, gift guides, Nordstrom 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!

Ani’s Outfit:

  1. White V-Neck Pocket Tee – An everyday staple she’ll want to wear over and over again. This tee layers so well with tons of different jackets and sweaters for the fall. It has the cutest raw hem to give it an even more relaxed/lived in feel. Get this for just $12.99 during the sale, that’s a crazy good price!
  2. Fray Hem Wide Leg Jeans – Okay, these jeans aren’t on sale but how cute are they?! The fray hem and wide leg are huge trends right now and the pocket details are even giving us carpenter pant vibes without all of the extra bulkiness we had to deal with in the 90’s. She’ll be so cute and on trend this fall in these high waisted jeans!
  3. Faux Suede Moto Jacket – This faux suede moto jacket is a beauty and an absolute fall must have! This a great price point for a nicer jacket that can easily dress an outfit up when she needs something a bit more put together than a denim jacket. Save $45 on this fall classic during the Sale!
  4. Chuck Taylor All Star High Tops – These high tops are selling fast! Everything we love about a classic high top converse with a sweet scallop detail. Regularly $90, get these while they’re on sale for just $55.99!
  5. Animal Print Backpack – You already know I’m obsessed with the entire Cheetah line from Herschel this year in the sale, and I’ll say it again – who can beat a $23 practically weightless packable duffel for when you have souvenirs you need to pack home after a great vacay OR as a back to school option?! I couldn’t resist!

Lyla’s Outfit:

  1. Puff Sleeve Sweatshirt This puff sleeve sweatshirt sold-out super fast but this option is still in stock and is so cute styled with jeans, skirts or even shorts if you’re in a warmer climate.
  2. Kids Pleated Faux Leather Skirt – This faux leather skirt is just too darling! The elastic waist makes it comfy and easy to pop on. Style it with a graphic tee, or a sweater in the fall.
  3. Glitter Vans – Vans just make everything cuter, amiright?! These glitter ones are no exception. These sneakers finished off Lyla’s look in the cutest way with some high top socks. Plus these are a great price point during the sale right now at just $34.99 (reg. $45)!

THE Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kids’ dress

*This was a find from last year’s Anniversary Sale but it’s back this year in two other super cute prints!

Our Lyla-bear was suuuuper excited to wear this dress. She loves all things girly, and this dress screams “GIRL-y”! This is such an easy, throw-on, comfortable dress that comes in SO many fun patterns and colors. Definitely a top recommendation out of all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kids picks!

What I love about this dress is the spandex fabric and how “play-proof” it is. Lyla can wear it to church, and then come home and hang out in it comfortably or play the whole rest of the day in it without needing to change, so we both love that! Plus, this dress is only $22.90 (reg. $35) during the Sale!

Hipster Undies

I buy these hipster undies for all of my girls every. single. year. They’re the undies they want to wear the most, that last the best, and they’re just the very best. My girls LOVE them. And the nice thing about them is that they come in so many different colors! What I like to do with my girls is buy them each a certain color set so they know which one is theirs, and that there’s zero confusion. Makes doing laundry 10x easier + kids’ chores!

These undies come in a 5-pack on sale for only $11.99 (reg. $19), so that’s a GREAT deal! Nearly 600 reviews and almost everyone agrees that they’re a perfect FIVE stars. Love these!

Something for the boys

If you’re looking for a dress shirt for your little guy to wear to church or a big event, this is the one! Seriously, this dress shirt is just DARLING. The blue is such a great color to have and is the perfect shade. It’s machine washable and super comfortable too! It’s normally $39, but right now you can get it for only $25.99 during the sale.
