It’s here! Early access of the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started today at 12AM PST. I got up at 1:30 CST have spent the last few hours going through EVERY page of the sale and picking out my favorite pieces from the sale. It’s so hard to narrow it down because there is SO much good stuff. I am working on a post with all of my top 25 picks in each category for you all, but in the mean time I wanted you to be able to shop my 2018 Nordstrom Sale top picks.

You’ll be able to see all of my picks in each category by hovering on the ‘Nordstrom Sale’ tab of blog and then click down on each of the categories. You can also shop by price the same way.  To see all of my blog posts throughout the sale, click on that tab and they’ll all be archived there. Be sure you’re following along with me on Instagram to see my posts and stories and that you are following me in the LiketoKnow.it app. I’ll be posting exclusive content to each platform! Check my story highlights to be sure you don’t miss anything, too.

You need a Nordstrom card to shop early access today. Find out more in this post, but it’s not too late to go ahead and apply and get one to shop before the sale goes live to the public on July 20th.


Below are my top picks from this year’s sale! Some of these I have already purchased myself or added to my cart while going through every thing. To shop, simply click on any of the photos below and you’ll be taken directly to that product’s page where you can shop. Feel free to reach out with any questions!


Too many cute things, right?! The best part is that most of these items come in several colors, so if you find something you love, you can stock up. I bought the cami in three colors, the wrap sweater in three, and the blazer in two! The white heeled booties come in several colors, too and I think those were my favorite purchase. I got them in the white, but also want red and black.


Andddd now for a giveaway! To say thank you to you all for your ongoing support, I’m going to be giving away $50 gift cards so you can get some items on your wishlist during the sale. I will choose at least two winners today and may even do extra ones and do it again tomorrow depending on response! To enter, all you have to do is comment below with the product name of your favorite item and/or color of the item you like best that I included in my top picks up above & tell me how or where you would style it! Easy, peasy. I’ll choose my fav responses and select the winners by Friday. Good luck and happy shopping! XO

    • Lauren

      SUCH a good pick! There are so many ways to style them. XO

  2. Tamar D

    The LEITH Rib Wrap Sweater is a great staple for Fall! Throw it on with a pair of distressed jeans and peep toe booties!! I personally love the Tan heather color =)

  3. Hollyann

    I LOVE those maroon dangly earrings (not sure what they are called haha)! I would dress my outfits up for work with them or I could wear them out to spice up my outfit! LOVE them and thanks for your posts 🙂

    • Lauren

      Those are such fun statement earrings! That is one of my favorite colors for Fall. XO

  4. So I’m going to have to pick the convertible belt bag.. I’m in love with a couple of the booties but that bag had caught my eye in your Paris stories and I thought it was the cutest, neatest piece ever! I have a two year old and baby #2 on the way so big travel plans are not in my current future BUT I think this bag is perfect for the Zoo, parks, and the dinosaur exhibit I’m going to soon! Haha I’m trying over here to be a little bit more of a fashionable momma!

    • Lauren

      Omgosh it’s perfect for all of that! It’s so nice to either wear around your waist or slung around your chest so that you can be ‘hands free.’ Love that it comes in a few colors, too! XO

  5. Stefani

    SO much good stuff here!! Love those knee high boots, in black or the tan, with a short and frilly dress!

    • Lauren

      The boots are a no brainer– the hard part is deciding on a color! #thestruggle. XO

  6. Kristina Moffitt

    I LOVE the Cela Genuine Calf Hair Mules!!! They are the freaking cutest and I love the bow!

    • Lauren

      That bootie is SO good. Definitely was one of the first things I wanted!! There are so many ways to wear them. XO

  9. Shelley W

    Hey lady! Loving the Cocoon Cardigan in the charcoal. Would work well to stylishly combat frigid zones at work! Thanks for all your posts/videos about the sale! Looking forward to the rest!

    • Lauren

      Thank YOU for following along. I hope they are helpful!! Lots more to come. I LOVE that cardigan so much. It’s perfect to throw on. XO

    • Lauren

      Probably the most classic choice! It will never go out of style. XO

  10. Love the Mali+Lili quilted vegan leather convertible belt bag!! I would love to style this during my upcoming trip to Italy in August. It’s gorg!

    • Lauren

      I just wore it so much when in Paris! It’s such a great and easy piece. Especially for traveling! XO

  11. Mary Adger Bowen

    Free People Saturday Morning Cardigan in the wine color, with a white or grey tee (like the one you posted) and a pair of ripped skinny jeans (those BP ones) with grey booties (Currently leaning towards Vince Camuto Pevista) and silver layered jewelry.

    • Lauren

      Free People always gets it right! You just put together the cutest ‘virtual’ outfit!! XO

  12. The Aphrodite Layered Necklace in gold is gorgeous and my fave from your picks! This would be the perfect accessory to add to any of my summer outfits.

    • Lauren

      That is a great pick, Ashley. I wear layered necklaces like that almost every day. They are so easy and effortless! XO

  13. I love the No Limit Suede Moto Jacket! I plan to wear this while exploring the many breweries in Denver this fall, but to be honest, I will probably wait to see how you style it 🙂

    • Lauren

      Such a great idea! I’ll be sharing one outfit with it in the next day or two and will share several more in the weeks to come of the sale. There are SO many ways to wear it! XO

  14. So into the Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans in black!! They look to be a chic and young simple pant for wearing to the office and going out afterwards!

    • Lauren

      I loooove raw hem denim so much right now! I can’t stop buying them. I think they are perfect for day to night looks, too. XO

  15. The Abroad Trench by Madewell in Dark Rope is everything! I love to sew, so might add a little gold metallic flair under the collar (a la Burberry), and I’d wear it everywhere! So perf.

    • Lauren

      I agree! And oh my gosh what an amazing skill– that would be so cute. XO

  16. I LOVE the Madewell trench-such a good steak and perfect to wear walking to and from work in the fall here in NYC. Would look so cute with a pair of tailored ankle pants and mules (especially the cheetah print mules you posted also from the sale )

    • Lauren

      I know I need that trench ASAP. I love Madewell’s stuff! And yes, it would pair perfectly with those mules– great idea! XO

  17. I love the BP lace trim satin cami! I’m not sure if I want it in black or in ivory more. Still deciding! I think it would be perfect for layering in the fall with a cute cardigan!

    • Lauren

      I meaaann, I got both and I do not regret it because I know I will wear them nonstop. SUCH steals. XO

  18. Jessica

    I love the blank NYC suede jacket and love the sam edelman boots!

  19. I am SO eyeing the T3 singlepass flat iron!!! I love T3 products. I have the curling wand trio set and I love it. I always hesitate taking a flat iron to my hair but I know this one is such good quality!! Thanks for posting 🙂

    • Lauren

      All of their products are so great! I love the T3 tools because you can adjust the heat. I use mine almost every day! XO

  20. Sara Konda

    I love the legging raw hem skinny jeans! I would wear those with a casual tee with a leather jacket and some booties! You can even dress it down and switch out the leather jacket for a cardigan.

    • Lauren

      I always love stocking up on jeans during the sale. I can never have enough! XO

  21. Samantha

    I LOVE the olive blanknyc suede moto jacket! I would pair it with the black lace cami, black high waist jeans, and black studded booties for a perfect New York fall look!

    • Lauren

      Giiiirl, that jacket is one of the first things I grabbed when I went shopping. I just love it. XO

  22. I am 100% CRUSHING on the J.Crew Olga Topcoat. We are heading to Boston in December, and that would be such a great pop of color for the city! I could keep it street chic with leather leggings and Nike’s/sneakers. But dress is up with pumps, boots and a killer dress for date night!

    • Lauren

      I mean isn’t it just so gorgeous?! It’d be the perfect winter coat. I love so many of the colors it comes in! SUCH a staple that you’d have for years. XO

  23. My favorite is the Lace Trim Satin Camisole in Black! There are so many ways you could style it – jeans, leather jacket over the cami and booties or cute skirt, tucked in with OTK boots or jeans, cardigan over the cami and cute sneakers. I can’t wait to order mine!

    • Lauren

      Yes love that you said with sneakers. I love camis dressed up or down, too! You’ll get so much good wear out of that piece. XO

  24. BP camis and raw edge tees! Perfect for layering in so many ways and v neck means necklaces pair in perfectly!

    • Lauren

  25. Kristen

    Gotta say the classic Rib Wrap Sweater by Leith in ivory or black is my fav! A classic fall staple that can be styled so many ways!

    • Lauren

      I could have that sweater in every color I feel like and never get tired of it. It really is so versatile! XO

  26. Love the BP Lace Trim Satin Cami in black!! Feel like it is so cute and versatile at a great price point. Would be so cute with dark jeans, black booties, and a cardigan for a more casual dinner or with a black leather skirt and OTK black boots for a night out on the town!!

    • Lauren

  27. Katelyn Mayhew

    The Sam Edelman Caprice Knee-High Boots 300% of the way! I’m in the middle of selling last years knee high boots to justify these beauties, even though they mostly do it on their own!

    And the close second winner is of course the classic Spanx Moto Leggings, will be most of my wardrobe this fall.

    Thank you for all your hard work for this sale! Lifesaver!

      Oh both such great picks! I literally live in my Spanx leggings when it’s cold outside. I love that they hold everything in without being uncomfortable. Thank YOU so much for stopping by!! XO

  28. I love the trench coat in beige! But what I really need is a black jumpsuit to wear for presentations because I’m in Graduate School at Oklahoma State. A gift card would be really helpful for this broke college student

    • Lauren

      Such a great pick! I def remember that #collegelife. Hang in there! I linked a few cute jumpsuits under ‘dresses’ on the drop down of the Nordstrom Sale. Hopefully you can find a cute one on sale!! XO

  31. The RayBabies! A.K.A. Ray Bans – I love the round/subtle lens look. Obviously pairing them with a beach hat! Although these can really be paired with anything in my book 😉
