2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – My Top Picks

As you all know, I’m not much of a shopper. (Finn handles that in our household!) But every year, I do buy some staples from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s a good chance to stock up on high-quality items that I then wear on repeat throughout the year. Last year, I was a few months postpartum, and still figuring out my new size, so I mostly stuck to a few new pairs of shoes that I wore all year long, and some new blouses. (You can see my 2020 wish list here.)

2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

This year, I’m 7 months pregnant so it’s another interesting time to be shopping the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  But I still had to take a look at all of the goodies and see if anything was worth getting. And yep, I definitely got lured into this year’s sale. I don’t even have a Nordstrom card, but my mom does (thanks, Jan!) and she gets access to the sale starting tomorrow. So I’m planning to have her scoop up a few items for me. If you’re not a Nordstrom card owner, then the sale opens to everyone from July 28th until August 8th.

2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

So here are my top picks from the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary sale…

Midnight Recovery Oil

Oh, how I love this stuff as part of my skincare routine. I put this on last and it smells amazing and feels so soft and luxurious on my skin. I’ve had my current bottle for YEARS, so I may have to scoop up another one.

  • Normal Price = $125
  • Sale Price = $83.50

Initial Pendant Necklace

I’m always a fan of delicate gold jewelry and extra credit if it can be personalized. This dainty pendant necklace can have your initial or even the initial of your children (why not double up?). I may have to go with an “F” just to cover the entire family.

  • Normal Price = $50
  • Sale Price = $29.90

Madewell Baseball Cap

I’m a big hat girl (especially during DIY projects) and I have a very similar gray cap that I always get compliments on. I think it can be tough to find a logo-less hat and this one from Madewell is perfection.

  • Normal Price = $29.50
  • Sale Price = $18.90

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan

I wanted to get this last year, but it sold out too quickly in my size. This year, I’m determined to get one of these super-soft cardigans. I’m eyeing the dark gray or the cream.

  • Normal Price = $116
  • Sale Price = $69.90
