The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 officially starts this week! Earlier this week I shared my first impressions and some fall trends I was seeing from the preview, and now that I’ve had some time to go through everything I wanted to share my curated wishlist! I purchase many different items from this sale to review for y’all, but these are the items I’m personally most excited about to add to my wardrobe.
One little tip I wanted to share before we get started: I have a shopping list on the notes app of my phone and I periodically write in items I think I’m missing from my wardrobe throughout the year. Usually, I realize it when I’m getting ready and I wish I had something to go with an outfit. I also list out specific events I have during the year so I can stay ahead of my wardrobe needs. I find this very helpful, especially for this sale, because I don’t remember things I was missing from my wardrobe last fall and winter. I use the little checklist option to check things off as I get them, because who doesn’t love a checklist 🙂
If you are still making your shopping list, check out my Ultimate Shopping Guide where I have the best items categorized to make shopping easy peasy.
If you don’t know when you can shop the sale, I shared all the dates and details in this post.
Strawberry Chic’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wishlist
Let’s start with shoes because that is always my closet weakness, especially during the sale! The shoe you pick for an outfit is the icing on the cake – it’s what gives it personality or ties the look together! Here are the shoes on the top of my wishlist for the sale. These are the shoes on the top of my wishlist!
I was able to order these early during the preview glitch and they are much prettier in person than the online photo! In person, they are more chocolate brown. These actually surprised me because they are very flattering on the leg and also really comfortable. If you’re looking for a unique and trendy boot to add to your wardrobe, this is the pair!
I love how white boots have made a huge comeback. If you have a light and airy wardrobe like I do, this is a great boot for you! It’s surprisingly very easy to style a white boot throughout the season because you don’t have to worry about different neutral browns clashing with your outfit. These are petite friendly with a short shaft height and run TTS.
Lounge and Athleisure
There are so many great pajamas included in the sale this year! I’m loving all the washable silk options. Something about wearing silk makes me feel more put together than traditional cotton pajamas, ya know? There are also a lot of athleisure pieces I already own and love – stay tuned for a round-up of those items because they’re items I highly recommend!
If I wasn’t already kindly gifted this sleeveless sweater and midi skirt, they would have been on my wishlist. I styled this top so many ways in this year’s NSALE lookbook! Both pieces are great transition pieces. Even though the sweater is sleeveless, you can continue to layer it under cardigans and blazers throughout the season. The slip skirt is really good quality and feels pretty substantial. I’m wearing a medium in both, but I wish I got a small in the sweater so if you’re between, go with the size down! If you want inspiration on how to style a slip skirt, I have some outfits rounded up here.
Here are the clothing items on my wishlist for this season. I have a mix of sweaters and bottoms that I feel will be staples in my seasonal wardrobe.
This year I am on the hunt for some new jeans, but it’s hard to shop them online without trying them on so I plan to try out a few different styles and will share them in my haul! This year I have two mini skirts on my wishlist. The first is a denim skirt with buttons and I think it’s so chic! I’m going to Jackson next month and plan to pack it if it works out! It’s a really great transitional piece. I also have this leather skirt on my wishlist and although it’s a splurge, it’s something I know I’ll wear often. I have a more affordable leather skirt from Abercrombie I’ve worn every year for the past 3 seasons, so I’m excited to invest in one that’s higher quality!
BEAUTY ITEMS ON MY WISHLIST
Beauty items in the sale usually consist of deluxe sizes or limited edition value sets only found in the sale. If you have favorites you already know and love, it’s a great time to stock up! Here are the items on my beauty wishlist:
Other than the body lotion, which I buy every year, these are all new products I’m excited to try out! The Tom Form beauty products are some of the best value in the sale and I love the color options in the sets!
