The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 is officially here! This is one of my favorite sales to shop all year long because it’s the only one that marks items down at the start of the season. I’ve picked up so many of the wardrobe staples that I find myself wearing year after year during the sale. I thought it would be fun to go through some of my all-time favorite purchases from past Nordstrom Anniversary Sales that are part of the sale again this year! I also have a few items to review that I haven’t reached for as often, too. I know it’s helpful to hear both the good and bad to make smart purchases for your closet!

My Most Worn Items From Previous Nordstrom Anniversary Sales

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale All Time Favorite Purchases

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

One of my most worn pieces throughout fall and winter are my Spanx faux leather leggings. I have a classic, casual style that usually involves lots of boots, sweaters and cardigans. Having the perfect pair of leggings that I can dress up with a knee-high boot or down with sneakers and an oversized sweatshirt is a must! These were also a staple item in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Lookbook, full of 100+ fall outfits!

Another favorite of mine is the Barefoot Dreams blanket. I know, I know, it’s definitely an investment. But I use mine every single day, and it’s held up great. Not to mention, it’s truly the softest blanket. They come in a variety of colors and patterns too. This is also a great gift, if you’re looking to get a jump start on your Christmas shopping.

I was also super excited to see that the T3 products were a part of the sale again this year. I love my T3 curling iron. It’s perfect for when I’m in a hurry and want to throw a quick curl in my hair. I also love that they offer different barrel sizes, depending on how tight you want your curls to look.


I’m all about a long line cardigan in the fall. I love that this one can be dressed down with jeans and mules or paired with black pants for work. These mules are another must-have from the sale. With this year’s version, the chain is the same color as the shoe, giving a chic, monochromatic look. They have a total of six color variations as well. I wore mine a ton last year. I plan on getting another pair this year, because of just how much I wore mine.


Free People henley top

This Free People henley top was one of my most worn basic pieces last fall. I loved that I could pair it with leggings and sneakers or dress it up a little more with jeans and booties. These leggings are the Zella leggings. I wasn’t on board with the fit when I first tried them a few years back. But I gave them another shot in the maternity version when I was pregnant with Josie, and that was pretty much the only pant I wore for months.

The Nordstrom Sale always has a variety boots and booties! It’s such a great time to grab a staple fall shoe at a fraction of the price. I recommend going with a neutral bootie like this pair, that you can wear with just about anything throughout the season. These are items that usually sell out quickly though, so be sure to save them to your wishlist, so that you can easily add them to your cart!


most used beauty items

Some of my tried and true beauty favorites are included in the sale this year, like my everyday makeup mirror and this Tula skincare set. Beauty is a great category to grab a few gifts and stock up on your favorites at a value price.
