Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Catalog and Top Picks by Category
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 catalog is here! Depending on your Nordstrom card status you can shop on different days! I personally will start shopping July 16th! If you're not sure of your status click here, log in and click on “my account.”
To shop early you will need a Nordstrom card.
I've scoured all the 3,500+ #Nsale items (yes, really) and picked out the best clothing, jeans, sweaters, dresses, beauty, shoes, and more!
I shop this sale every year because this are my most worn pieces throughout the year, hands down. I am super excited about this years sweaters, cardigans, and dresses. So many pieces I know I'll wear all year long.
A bit about why you should listen to me on my Nordstrom picks: I am a real person. I'm not a fashion blogger. I'm not a size 0 and I share REAL pieces and the best deals. You likely won't see anything expensive. I focus on quality over quantity.
It's important to note that new stuff is added and things WILL sell out. I'll update you with my guides, what's in stock, and photos of me in the clothing!

Here is the best of the best for this year's Nordstrom Anniversary sale!
Here are my top picks of the sale so far. Pictured above:
Floral Long Sleeve Chiffon Dress // True Body Triangle Lace Racerback Bralette // Ray-Ban State Street 49mm Square Sunglasses // Initial Pendant Necklace // BP. Ripped Straight Jeans // Treasure & Bond Plaid Burlap Scarf // Zella Live in Leggings // ‘Caroline' Travel Jewelry Case // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings // Free People Swim Too Deep Turtleneck Sweater // Snuggle Plush Faux Fur Slipper // St. Tropez Jumbo Self Tanner // Marc Fisher LTD Padmia Boot // Floppy Wool Felt Panama Hat // Wubby Jacket
Best of the #Nsale Bottoms
Kut From the Kloth Catherine Ab Fab Ripped High Waist Boyfriend Jeans (My favorite jeans of the sale! So flattering!) // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings (my fav “dressy” leggings) // BDG 90's Vintage Mom Jeans // BP. Ripped Straight Jeans // Good American Good Waist Distressed Ankle Skinny Jeans (these suck you in!) // Zella Live in Leggings (my all time fav leggings!) // Kut From the Kloth Elizabeth Fab Ab High Waist Raw Hem Ankle Straight Leg Jeans // Muse Ribbed High Waist Sweatpants
Zella Live-In leggings, originally $59, on sale for $38.90. These are the best leggings in the WORLD. After 3 years I'm finally buying a new pair. The only reason is because I went hiking and a stick scraped my leg and I have a small hole. I wear these for lounging, working out, hiking, walking around, LIVING. They are the best. Buy 8. They are comfortable, high waist, and moisture wicking. I also wear them with sweaters and dress them up with boots.
Zella Live-In Leggings Pocket 7/8 – originally $59, on sale for $38.90. What I really REALLY love are the 7/8 pocket legging because they are a bit shorter (and I'm pretty short) AND they also have pockets. I will be buying these in every color offered.
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – originally $98, on sale for $64.90. Cute, comfy, suck you in, and look great for dressing up.

I got both colors!) // BP Stripe Crop Cardigan (I love this cropped cardigan and haven't seen anything like this. $22.90). // BB Dakota Naples Colorblock Cardigan (super thin and great transition piece)

What to Skip
I think people often focus on these things, just because they're on sale. But these are a big pass.
I tried this Spanx Bra last year and I couldn't stand it. It didn't support me and the cups were tiny.
The Thread & Bare “wubby” fleeces do not hold up. Not worth it.
There's nothing wrong with this top, per se. Except for the fact it's almost $300.. on sale! And it's very thin and see through. That's a pass.
Living Proof Full Size Full Shampoo, Conditioner & Full Dry Volume Blast™ Set – I am just not overly impressed with Living Proof Shampoo or conditioner. Their scalp treatment worked wonders. But I've had a full set of this product and didn't care for it.
