Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Picks

My favorite sale of the year is here, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I have been covering this sale for years now (I think this is my 5th or 6th year!), and it has always been my favorite. Reason being, is because all of these pieces are brand new essentials for the upcoming fall & winter seasons that are marked down and go back up in price after the sale is over! This includes apparel for the whole family, home decor, bags & accessories. Not to mention, Nordstrom has always been one of my favorite retailers with amazing customer service. To get “early access” to shop the sale, you must be a Nordstrom card holder. “Public access” opens on July 28. Early Access is a special perk reserved for Nordstrom cardmembers – your Nordy Club level is based on yearly spend amounts, though all cardmembers automatically start at Influencer status. You can only shop Anniversary Sale Early Access as a cardmember. Check out when you can shop below:

  • July 12: Early Access for cardmembers with Icon status.
  • July 14: Early Access for cardmembers with Ambassador status.
  • July 16: Early Access for cardmembers with Influencer status.
  • July 28: Anniversary Sale opens to the general public / non-cardholders.

There are a little over 90 pages of inventory in this sale, and I went through every single one to pick out my favorite finds and items that I consider worth purchasing. Since there is so much inventory, it can be so overwhelming to shop the sale, so I hope this helps you curate your wish lists and shop the sale! Stick to your budget and consider staple items and things you need before diving in. No one needs to go in debt during this sale!

Below are some of my favorite items in the previous year’s sales. There are quite a few that are back in stock this year (or slightly updated for this year)!

my wish list:


sweaters & cardigans:


denim & bottoms:


bags, jewelry & accessories:

intimates & loungewear:


men / tom’s picks:

Thanks for being my shopping buddy ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to hear about your favorite finds from the sale, and share a try-on with my order later this week!
