Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: Our Top Picks

It’s finally here — the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Early Access! In case you missed this post, we’ll give you a quick run-down. This is the biggest and best sale of the year. We love it so much because it’s all-new pieces for fall. Not things that didn’t sell the past few months. Not things that last season. Not things that were overstocked. ALL NEW ITEMS!  We love to stock up on cardigans, leggings, and booties…but we also love to buy fun statement pieces that we know will jump in price as soon as the sale is over.

Head to our Instastories now for our first thoughts from the sale, as well as the things we use and love that are included in the sale! We will do several extensive posts broken down by category and price – but today we are each sharing our top picks from the sale.

Ash’s Picks:

In the Wild Throw

This is the first thing I am putting in my cart because I know it will sell out ASAP.  I DIEEEEEE for the new color! And you can’t beat the price.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

Another item that is going to absolutely sell out are our favorite faux leather leggings. These were gone within hours last year. I am going to get a backup pair since I didn’t last year because I was pregnant. These are the best and rarely go on sale!

Color Block Fleece Pullover

I live in cozy pullovers in the fall and winter! Seems crazy to buy it right now when it’s 100 degrees out, but I promise you won’t regret it!

Swift Run Sneakers

These are the sneakers that I have in five colors! I love them so much! The cheetah print is my favorite and I can’t believe that it’s part of the sale!

Zella Live In Leggings 

If you’ve been here for a while, my love for these needs no explanation. And if you have no clue what I’m talking about, check out THIS post.

Main Squeeze Sweater

This is my personal favorite sweater of the entire sale! I love the tan color, but will probably grab the black, too! I love how you can wear it off the shoulder, or not – will work with leggings, jeans, black pants etc. So versatile and will last you forever.

Moonlight Pajamas

I’m not joking when I say that I have an entire drawer of these. They are my favorite and are so so so soft! Loving the new prints and colors for the sale!

Leopard Pullover

I love how soft this looks! Can’t wait to style it with my leather leggings and some over the knee boots! YASSSS!

Teddy Coat

Emily saw this coat and knew I would be in love with it and she was right!  The colors are so gorgeous and I know I will get so much use out of this!

Necessaire Set

I have been using their Eucalyptus scrub and I am obsessed. My girlfriend told me I HAD to get the lotion and that she has one in every single room of her house so I will be adding this to my cart!

Le Labo Candles

There is no better scent than Le Labo. Every single thing they make is fabulous and these concrete candles are going to be so gorgeous wherever I decide to put them in my house!

Em’s Picks:

Pointed Toe Bootie:

I love booties like these for fall and winter. I especially LOVE the neutral grey color. The top is perfect for underneath wider cut jeans, and I love that you can tuck leggings into these as well for a chic streamlined look! I also think the heel height is just perfect. Not too high, and perfect for chasing around children.  This boot combines a classic Western silhouette with the gored details of a Chelsea boot, so it’s also super easy to pull on and take off.

Drapey Jacket:

I bought two of these jackets last year and they were some of my MOST WORN items all last year. I will definitely be purchasing the black and the nude color this year. They look SO much more expensive than they are and the literally go with EVERYTHING. I love pairing them with my favorite white tee – also in the sale!

Lace-Up Bootie:

I have heels that are almost exactly like these and I ALWAYS get asked where they are from. Thankfully Nordstrom took note, and included these GORGEOUS bootie in the sale. They are amazing because you can wear them into winter and still look super chic!

Camel Lounge Set:

I love this neutral lounge set. This brand always makes everything with the best fabrics and I LOVE the look of this one.

Cardi Coat:

This is my most wanted item of the whole sale. It is so inexpensive but looks SO luxe. I want it in the grey and the camel! It is a fuzzy-textured cardigan, designed with a versatile open front, and a longline fit.

Frame Denim:

Frame denim is by far my favorite designer denim brand, and these jeans are SO classic and flattering.

Plaid Blazer:

You all know how much  I LOVE blazers. I wear them all fall and winter long with white tees and lace-trimmed camis underneath. I love layering them with heavier jackets and I think they give you the easiest, most polished look, with minimal effort. They are also SUPER slimming. This plaid one also looks great layered over the cowl neck sweater I am wearing in the main photo of this post!

Cowl Neck Sweater:

Every year I look for this sweater and stock up on new colors because it is SUCH a good one! The material is so soft, so cozy, and I size up for an oversized fit. I am wearing the ivory and the size medium in the photo in this post. It is the only turtleneck you’ll need this fall!

Everyday Tee:

I have this tee in 5 colors and multiples of each. It is truly the best everyday tee and every Anniversary Sale I ALWAYS stock up on them! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They look effortlessly chic and super cool.

Hooded Moto Blazer:

As soon as I saw this, I knew it would be my go to moto for fall! I love the mixed media!

Vince Sneaker:

I love these cool sneakers! They will go with absolutely everything this fall!


Complete your look with the effortless casual style of this ribbed, wool-softened ruana.
