2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – My Top Picks

You guys know me. I’m not much of a shopper (I leave that all up to Finn). But every year I buy some staples from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s a good chance for me to get a few new tops, new jeans, and shoes. And then I pretty much wear those items on repeat over and over again. It’s kinda the only big shopping I do all year. Seriously, chances are if you ask me where something is from on Instagram I’ll tell you that I bought it at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale from the prior year.

This year, I was really looking forward to shopping the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because I need some bigger clothes after having Rory (those old skinny jeans are still a bit snug!).

2019 – Shopping In-Store

Well, obviously, this year is a strange one and I won’t be shopping in person. And heck, I really don’t need that many clothes since I literally go nowhere and I don’t see anyone who warrants me wearing a cute outfit. Since the sale is all online this year (opening to everyone on the 19th!), I figured I might as well give it a looksie to see if any of the deals made sense for me to snag. I’m happy to say there are actually quite a few things I’m digging from this year’s sale. I don’t even have a Nordstrom card, but my mom does (thanks, Jan!) and she was granted access yesterday. So I ended up scooping up a few of these below items yesterday morning (I’ll report back when they arrive to let you know my thoughts!).

2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

So here are my top picks from the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary sale…

Vince Camuto Blouse

Bring on all the flowy tops this year! This one comes in many gorgeous colors and the price is right.

  • Normal Price = $59
  • Sale Price = $29.90

Initial Necklace

As I mentioned, I’m really into gold necklaces these days. I have a small “A” for aurora and a large “R” for Rory in other necklaces…but I kinda want one of these too! Not sure if I would go with the “R” or “A” though. Decisions, decisions.

  • Normal Price = $44
  • Sale Price = $24.90

Zella Leggings

These leggings have a crazy amount of amazing reviews, so I’m eager to see what the hype is all about. Athleisure is my go-to on my “mom days” so I could use a new pair of leggings.

  • Normal Price = $59
  • Sale Price = $39

Cozy Cardigan

Here is another Barefoot Dreams cardigan that made the list. I pretty much live in nursing tanks and cardigans these days, so adding another to the list sounds like a good idea.

  • Normal Price = $116
  • Sale Price = $69

Cozy Knit Top

Another drapey top for the win. Love the look of this knit top, but not sure which color I would choose. They’re all so pretty!

  • Normal Price = $59
  • Sale Price = $39

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 is already open to some cardholders, but it will open to everyone next Wednesday, August 19th! Are there any particular items you’re looking to buy this year? It’s definitely a strange year for buying clothing (I can’t imagine the next time I’ll need a fancy outfit for something!), but it’s still fun to look and to buy a few staples, even if I’m just lounging around the house in them.
