Top 10 Finds From The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Today is the day...The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins for Nordstrom credit card holders at 12:30PM Eastern!  I am sharing my top 10 finds from this year's sale including fit information and pricing.  I know that not all of you have a Nordstrom credit card, so I will do a new blog post the first day that the sale is available for everyone (July 19) and will share my favorites that are still available at that time.

Before we get started, a quick explanation of how the links to items work for bloggers.  In order for me (or any other blogger you follow) to get "credit" for you buying an item we suggest, you must purchase directly through one of our links.  If you click on a link in this blog post (or through the app or anywhere else), but then purchase through the Nordstrom app, or click a different link before checking out, the blogger will not get credit.  I only share this because some of you have asked how this whole process works for bloggers.  With that said, I would very much appreciate you purchasing directly through my links if you find something you like (and not purchasing through the Nordstrom app).  The very small commission I make from your purchases is what allows me to keep Smart Southern Style up and running and I so appreciate your support!

Now on to my top 10 initial finds for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Some of my "finds" are specific items and some are a more broad category with a few picks.  I am only including items that I have or would purchase as I do not want to overwhelm you with a million options in this post!  I will list each pick then share some photos underneath with links to purchase each item.  I included sizing information for any items that I have personally tried on. If there is no size information listed, that means I have not tried on that particular item.  I will update this post with additional sizing details as I try on more of these items.

1.  PLAID BLAZER:  I love this classic double breasted blazer. I will wear it paired with jeans for a more casual look and will also pair it with black pants for work.  

2.  CASUAL T-SHIRTS:  I found several cute casual t-shirts with different prints on them, and they are all affordable.  I have included my favorites below.  

3.  DENIM:  There are 2 specific brands that I purchased during this sale.  The first is Wit & Wisdom which is is one of my favorite brands of denim.  Wit & Wisdom jeans all have an elastic band inside the waist band, so they are comfortable and help keep everything in place!  They are affordable $44 - $51 during the sale.  I purchased a pair of dark blue Wit & Wisdom jeans pictured in this post, as well as some with a snakeskin print in the photo below.

The second brand of denim I love is Good American.  If you are curvy, these are by far the best fitting jeans I have found.  Often, jeans are too big in the waist if they fit me in the hips & bum, but that is not the case for these!  They are very flattering with the high waist and are my new favorite jeans.  Good American jeans are more expensive than other denim brands I wear at a little over $100 on sale, but I think they are worth it.

The jeans are linked in photos throughout this post.  I also included a pair of Kut From The Kloth denim below because they are also a great quality affordable option and I love the button fly.  My store did not have these so I ordered them online.

4.  COLOR BLOCK SWEATERS:  It is no secret that I love colorful style and found several sweaters to add to my collection.

5. LOUNGEWEAR:  This was one of my favorite parts of this year's sale!  There are some really comfy pieces that are marked down 35% - 40%.  I stocked up on some new PJs as well as a Barefoot Dreams cardigan.  (Cardigan is pictured with snakeskin print jeans above.  It costs more that my other cardigans, but is by far the softest piece of clothing I have every worn!)

6.  VERSATILE JEWELRY PIECES:  I always purchase an item or two by Kendra Scott at the sale, because it is the only time they are on sale.  I bought a delicate necklace this year that you can see in several of my photos.  Sharing a close up photo below as well as a few other jewelry pieces I really like.

7.  SNEAKERS:  I bought a similar pair of wedge sneakers in a taupe color last year and wore them a bunch.  This year, I opted for a black pair and they are so comfy!  The sale also has some great athletic shoes and I am sharing my favorites below.

8.  BOOTIES:  If you think you will need new booties this fall, now is a good time to stock up.  Hard to think about them when it is 90 degrees outside though!  I bought a new pair of tan booties that have a pointed toe.  I also hopped on the snakeskin trend and bought a pair of wedge snakeskin booties.  I think they are neutral enough to wear with most anything.

9.  ANIMAL PRINT EVERYTHING:  There are so many animal print pieces in this year's sale!  I shared the snakeskin jeans above, but here are a few items that I bought on line.

10.  BEAUTY STAPLES:  There are so many beauty items that are a part of this sale so it can be overwhelming to pick anything! I am sharing a few items that I personally have and love.

I know this is a lot of money for body lotion, but this bottle is huge and lasts for many months.  I use this lotion every fall and winter when my skin is dry.  

I wear this Tory Burch perfume every day. I love this set because it comes with a second smaller bottle that I use for traveling.  

I buy this set of 3 candles every year during the Anniversary Sale.  They all smell amazing!  I will separate the set and use the candles as gifts throughout the year.  

This is another item I buy every year at the sale.  I put these diffusers in my bathrooms last year when I purchased them at the Nordstrom Sale and there is still a little left in the bottles, so they will last an entire year!  These make your room smell so good!

Well, there are my top 10 finds from the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I hope you found this blog post to be helpful if you decide to shop the sale.  I also wanted to share few reminders so you don't miss any of my updates over the next few weeks pertaining to the sale:
