Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017. Great deals on the hottest styles, from women's dresses to jeans to beauty products. Recipe at | @wellplated

I have a little something different for you today! My top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

If you are currently thinking, “Whaaaaat??? I thought this was a food blog,” fear not. I’ll be back with my usual recipe shenanigans tomorrow.

I wanted to share this post for a few reasons:

One: I hate shopping. Kind of. It takes a lot of time and energy, and I don’t find it especially relaxing. This means that when I do shop, it’s limited to items I truly love, are good quality, and know I will wear over and over again. I either already own or recently purchased many of the items on this list. Those that I have not, I would purchase if I had an unlimited budget, and I think you will love them too. Plus, now you don’t need to click through 70+ pages of options. I have the best of the sale for you right here!

Two: I love Nordstrom. This is not a sponsored post for Nordstrom or anyone else. When I do shop, 99% of the time it is online, and Nordstrom happens to be my favorite place to do it. It offers a great selection at a variety of price ranges, the items are good quality, and since Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns, I can try on as many items as I like, without the hassle of a dressing room or cash register line.

I also love a good deal, and many of these items are total steals right now.

Three: I thought it would be a lot of fun, and I hope you do too!

If you have a Nordstrom debit or credit card, you can preshop the sale and order items today. If not, the sale opens to the public this Friday, July 21, and lasts until August 6. Items sell out quickly, so if there is something you really love, I recommend purchasing sooner than later.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Top Picks

Shoes (first things first!):

  • These booties are too cute to be true.
  • Can a gal have too many booties? I hope not, because I love this pair.
  • My ultra stylish younger sister ordered these. I trust her taste.
  • These are for when I want to dress up an outfit without actually dressing up (or wearing heels).
  • These tennis shoes would cute with jeans and at the gym.
  • In case you Christmas shop really, really early, these cozy slippers would make the perfect gift for your mom, your best friend…or you.
  • These over-the-knee boots in every color, please.






  • Best. Bra. Ever. It’s light, comfortable, lies flat and smooth underneath t-shirts, and is super pretty and feminine. Bonus: it comes in lots of fun colors.
  • I haven’t tried this bra yet, but I love the above so much, I feel like it’s worth trying on another of the brand’s styles.
  • Since we are getting personal, I’ll go ahead and tell you that this pair of undies is actually comfortable, which as you may be aware, cannot be said of every pair of its genre.
  • Tempted to give this sports bra a try. I’ve heard great things about Zella (Nordstrom’s fitness line), plus I love the back crisscross detail. If you have to workout, why not do it in a sports bra with a little pizzazz?


  • I’ve been using this shampoo for the last three months and have been amazed by the results. My hair feels lighter, looks cleaner, and is less frizzy overall. It’s pricey, but the bottle lasts forever. I’ve been so happy with it that the splurge feels worth it.
  • Bonus: The mini dry shampoo that comes with the above set. I’ve tried dozens of brands, and this is one of the best on the market.
  • My absolute favorite face wash. A friend gave me a mini -set as a Christmas gift, and I became a believer. It lasts for months, doesn’t dry out my skin, and takes off makeup in one step (including mascara!), no other makeup remover required.
  • One of my best girlfriends pinky swears by this moisturizing lipstick-meets-chapstick.

WHEW! Did you find any favorites this list? If you are shopping the sale, I’d love to hear what you have your eye on too. Leave me a link!

  1. Such a great list! If I had an unlimited budget I would definitely be buying that romper, floral dress and the simple Kate Spade bangle.
