What You Need on Your Wishlist from the 2020 Nordstrom Sale

On Friday Nordstrom did their first ever online preview for their 2020 Nordstrom Sale. If you’re unsure about what the sale is, how it works, & when you can shop, check out this post I wrote: 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What You Need to Know. I hope that they do an online preview like this every year from now on!! I LOVED getting to see everything. It’s also amazing because it allows you to have a better strategy going into the sale. You can start adding items to your ‘Wish List’ now including what color & size you’d like. Then, when you have access to shop the sale (based on your ‘level’ with Nordstrom) you can simply add everything from your wishlist into your cart & checkout! I spent the entire weekend going through EVERY item on the sale & worked to come up with today’s blog post which is what you need on your wishlist from the 2020 Nordstrom Sale.

What You Need on Your Wishlist from the 2020 Nordstrom Sale

I seriously spent most of my weekend going through the sale & saving my top picks in each category for you all. I have SO much fun doing this & love helping you all score the best deals so it was so fun for me. I’ve been working on tons of content to share, starting with two easy to shop collages today! Let’s start filling up those wishlists so you can get just what you want & need from this incredible sale.

Below I have two collages based on what you need on your wishlist from the 2020 Nordstrom Sale. The first is my top picks & the second is items that have a high sell out risk. Make sure you scroll downt o see the second one! Both collages are hyperlinked, so if you click on any product picture, you’ll be taken straight to it’s page where you can shop or add it to your wishlist!

My Top Picks

The first collage is my top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. These are the items that I will be grabbing first on the morning the sale goes live. I personally am most excited for these items! They are things I’ve been needing or wanting & I am SO excited about all of them. It was seriously so hard for me to narrow it down!

Raw Hem Relaxed Jeans: I love the style of these jeans! They are high waisted & have a raw hem. Plus, they are a little cropped, which is perfect for showing off a cute shoe.

Ray Ban Sunnies: I love the shape of these sunglasses. I’ve been eyeing this pair for awhile, so I was excited to see them as a part of the sale. These are classic & will be a go to pair!

Le Labo Candle Set: This is one of my favorite candles & I love the concrete containers in this set. I’ll add these to our bookshelves & one in our bathroom! This would be a great gift, too.

Pointed Toe Cut Out Bootie: This bootie is perfect! I love the lower, block heel & the cut outs on the side. These will go with jeans, dresses, & everything in between. They come in five colors including a perfect taupe suede.

Oversized Sweater: I live for Free People sweaters like this! This neutral color is perfect, but it also comes in two other colors. I love the relaxed silhouette of this one.

Perfect Fall Bootie: This bootie is a DREAM. Seriously the perfect Fall bootie. I love this cognac suede because it will go with everything, but it comes in five colors. I could buy this in every color & bet set for Fall.

Two Strap Block Heel: I love block heels because they are so much more comfortable than traditional heels. I loved the double strap on this one! It comes in four neutral colors making it the perfect go to heel! I also love this pair, but it’s more of a splurge.

Spanx Leggings: These are a closet staple. I seriously have two pairs because I wear them a few times a week in the Fall & Winter. If you don’t have a pair, or even if you don’t have a back up pair, grab them now! I have one pair in an XS & one in a S.

Teddy Coat: A teddy coat is a must have in your closet & this one is the perfect neutral color. It’s a great price point for how much you’ll wear it, too.

Brow Serum: This is the brow serum I swear by. I use it & the eyelash serum (also on sale) EVERY night. I didn’t have to pluck for years but after using this consistently I had to start again. It’s amazing & you basically get two for the price of one. I always stock up during the sale.

Pillow Talk Set: This is the most universally flattering lipstick shade, ever. I always come back to this shade! I was with my girlfriend during a wedding makeup trial & the artist started talking about ‘the perfect neutral that looks great on everyone’ & I said, ‘Is it Pillow Talk?’ It was! This is a must have.

Air Max Sneakers: I legit almost bought these full price last week. I’ve been eyeing them & love them so much! I’ll wait for the sale so I can save though. I usually get my true size in Air Max sneakers. They come in another neutral color, too.

Open Back Workout Crop: How cute is this back detail?! I’ll definitely be snagging this workout crop top. It comes in three colors & there are matching leggings for two of the colors. I love this brand because it’s both cute & functional. I order my true size in this brand.

Silk Pillowcases: We have these & I’ll be ordering more to have on hand. I LOVE these pillowcases. They come in both King & Queen sizes. These are known to help with your hair not breaking off, with breakouts, & with making sure your skincare products don’t soak into your pillowcase!

Black Biker Shorts: Biker shorts are a must have right now! I love this pair because they are simple & under $50. Plus, they are Spanx so you know they will hold you in just right & be so flattering. This pair is also on sale & so cute! See ways to style biker shorts HERE.

Grey Wash Jean: I love the high waist & light grey wash of these jeans. They are so cute & I don’t have a pair that is this color. I feel like they will look great with any color top & any style of shoe!

High Sell Out Risk

The second collage is all of the items that I think have a high sell out risk. This is based on shopping behavior I’ve seen in previous years & based on items I know so many people are most excited about! If you’re wanting one of these items, I’d grab it quick so you don’t risk missing out.

Cardi Coat: This cardigan coat looks SO insanely comfortable. It’s a steal & also comes in grey. Things like this are classic pieces & always go quick during the sale. It looks like it fits oversized, so I’ll probably size down in it.

Square Neck Bodysuit: This is a closet staple & is only $25 + it comes in three colors. You can wear this on it’s own with any style bottom & it’s perfect for layering under jackets when it’s cooler. I’ll be grabbing the white & black in it. I usually size up one in this brand!

Moto Jacket: A black moto jacket is forever in style. This one is such great quality for a faux leather! I have it from a few years ago that I grabbed on the sale. It’s under $60 (a steal) & also comes in cognac. This jacket in suede (which I have in two colors) is always a popular sale item, too!

Black Biker Shorts: This is the same under $50 pair I shared above. They are Spanx so you know they will hold you in just right & be so flattering, which is why they make both lists! This pair is also on sale.

Black Bootie: Everyone needs a go to black heel bootie & I think this pair is so cute. They are under $60 & come in three colors including a two tone neutral that is gorgeous.

Classic Wide Brim Hat: This is the perfect Fall & Winter hat. The color will go with everything & it’s under $40, which is why I think it will sell out quick!

Barefoot Dreams Blanket: This is always one of the first things to sell out during the sale! I love this animal print one that comes in five color options. They also have a solid one in seven colors that is a part of the sale. One of my girlfriends already messaged me asking if I can grab this for her since I can shop before her. It’s so cozy. They also made dog sweaters in this blanket material in two colors & several sizes. I may have to get them for Maddie & Olive!

Good Legs Jeans: I love this denim brand so much! They are so flattering. Honestly, these may as well be on my wishlist because I am 100% grabbing them. I love the rich wash of these. I wear my true size in this brand.

PJ Set: I have this PJ set & it is incredibly soft! The set is on sale for only $30 & comes in 4 colors. It also comes in a version with pants & a sleep shirt— both of which are available in a few colors. They fit TTS!

Perfect Fall Bootie: This is the same one from my wishlist. I think these will go so fast in all five colors! I love everything about it & this brand is great quality + always really comfortable.

Link Charm Necklace: This brand is one of my favs for affordable, dainty jewelry. It layers so well & is good quality! I think this necklace is so cute & since it’s under $35 it’ll be a very popular pick this year.

Neutral Joggers: I love the neutral color of these under $30 joggers. I think it’s such a nice change from black joggers which you usually see more of! They do come in six colors including black though. I want them in a few!

Spanx Leggings: Same as above because these are a must have in your wardrobe. Even if you have a pair, having another pair is great so you always have a clean one. I like having two sizes depending on how I’m feeling throughout the Winter, too.

Leopard Tote: This bag always sells so quick during the sale. They are splurgeworthy pieces, but never go on sale so when they do everybody runs for them. I love this tote because you can use it for work or every day! The leopard print is perfect. It also comes in a small crossbody camera bag that I adore. The strap detail on it is too cute.

Ugg Slipper: I never see these marked down as much as I do during the Nordstrom Sale. They come in four colors & are under $50. I love the neutral & the black most (duh). These would make a great gift! This pair is also on sale & so cozy looking.

Nesting Bowls: I’m obsessed with this splatter print! These nesting bowls are great for both prep & storage + you can serve in them! I want these, the colander, & the single serving bowl.

Hopefully this helps you all get started with your sale prep & shopping!
