Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 – My Favorite Finds

Yay! It’s here! I’m so excited that everyone can finally shop the

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!


There are so many good items in this year’s sale so it’s easy to get overwhelmed and carried away. Now that I’ve had a full week to shop the sale and try out my purchases, I’ve rounded up a list of my favorite finds. These are all items that I bought, kept, and feel like I’ll get the most use out of this year!

1. Black Leather Jacket with Detachable Hood



If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen this jacket make several appearances this week. I absolutely love it! It comes in three colors and the hood detaches so you get two looks in one. I originally got a small, but ended up switching it for a medium because I felt like it was a little tight through the shoulders and I knew I’d be wearing it over heavier shirts and sweaters this Fall. I’d say it runs pretty true to size, but if you’re between two sizes I’d get your bigger one.

2. Black Sneakers


Oh look there’s the jacket again haha. These sneakers are just so good though. They’re comfy and cool and I can’t get enough of them. They run true to size.

3. High-Waisted Jeans

I was actually planning to invest in some designer denim during the sale, but I never found any jeans I liked more than these. I’m not complaining though because they’re only $XXX and I love them! They’re very high waisted and stretchy. I went down a size in these.

4. Lace Cami


I actually bought this cami last year and I’m so happy that they brought it back again! I own it in black and ivory and have worn both so many times over the past year. During the Summer you can wear them alone and in the Fall and Winter they look so cute underneath cardigans or jackets. I’d say they run pretty true to size, but if you’re between two sizes go up. Especially if you need more room in the bust area. I’m a size 6, 34D, and I’m wearing a Medium.

5. Cream Patagonia Pullover

I’m so happy I snagged this Patagonia on the first day of early access because it sold out super quick! It’s soft and perfect to throw on now with shorts and in the Fall with leggings or jeans. I own a few Patagonias and I always go up a size in them because I prefer them baggier. This is a Medium for reference but I own another color in Large and that works for me too.

6. Leopard Mules


These leopard slides were another favorite of mine from the sale and I’ve already worn them 2 or 3 days in this first week of having them! They’re comfy and so easy to add to any basic outfit. They run true to size.

7. Two-Toned Diamond Watch



This watch was my big splurge during the sale…or should I say Kent’s big splurge Haha! This year my Birthday fell on Mother’s Day AND Kent was gone AND I was working in Indiana away from my kids AND I got sick. Blah! So Kent keeps telling me he owes me a big present and a whole Birthday/Mother’s Day Re-do Haha! I wasn’t going to take him up on it… buuuuutttt when I saw this watch I fell in LOVE! I have wanted a Michele Watch for so long but I could never talk myself into spending the money on one. I could not believe it when I saw that this one was going to be part of the sale (and $1000 off!). It was exactly what I wanted; a gold and silver combination with the diamonds around the face and the little barbells on either side. I just couldn’t love it more. I have worn it every day this week and don’t foresee myself taking it off anytime soon.

   8. Color Block Sweater



This was my favorite pullover sweater from the sale. It comes in two colors and if you’re between sizes you can go down to the smaller one!

9. World’s Most Flattering Leggings


I purchased these leggings last year and didn’t need to re-buy them this year because mine have held up perfectly! I own the regular version and the moto version (pictured above). They are hands-down the most flattering leggings I’ve ever worn. I love that I can wear them with casual/athletic outfits, or dress them up with heels and a sweater or tunic. They are super tight (to suck you in) so I’d go up one size. On a side note the teddy coat I’m wearing in the picture above is on sale right now too! I’ll link it as well!

10. Wide Brimmed Hat



I’ve heard from several of you that the tan version of this hat was recalled for some reason! I guess that’s why we never saw it listed online :(. The black one is still so cute though and the fit is great. I’ve been wearing it all week and absolutely love it.

11. Leopard Sunglasses

I ordered three pairs of sunnies from the sale this year (I’ll link the others over in my app). I love them all but I think I’ll probably wear these the most. If you’ve followed me for a while you know I own and wear the black version of this same pair all the time. I love love love them! They look and feel so expensive! They feel just as good as the designer pairs I own for just a fraction of the price. I just can’t recommend them enough.

12. Cream Cardigan

This neutral cardigan is so soft and versatile and a steal at only $XXX. It’s perfect for layering over dresses or with jeans and leggings. Runs true to size.

13. Taupe Booties

I snag a new pair of taupe booties at the NSale every year because I know I’ll wear them all year long. This year I have two favorites and I thought I’d share both of them with you here and describe the differences between them in case you’re debating between these two too.

The top pair clearly has a lower heel and they have a lower profile that doesn’t come up as high around your ankle. They have a really cool little lace up detail on the sides and even though both pairs are described as “taupe”, the top pair definitely has a grayer hue. The bottom pair is slightly more brown with a higher heel, and a more pointed toe. The top pair runs true to size and the bottom pair run slightly small. I went up a half size.

14. Ear Crawler


If y’all watch my insta-story you already saw me talking about these little ear crawlers earlier this week. My sister in law has owned them for a long time and I always see them on her and think they look so cute! I’ve been meaning to order a pair and when I saw that they were a part of the sale I went ahead and snagged them! I’ve worn them everyday this week and love them! They’re a perfect light-weight everyday earring and a good alternative to the traditional stud.

15. Plaid Midi Coat


It’s  3 AM here and I’m realizing that I don’t have a picture of me wearing this coat that I ordered! I’ll try to get one for y’all soon. It’s way too hot for it right now but I can’t wait to wear it this Fall! I don’t own anything else like this but I absolutely love it!


Ok Gang! That’s it! I hope that some of these items will be back in stock for y’all!

Good Luck!
