Today is the last day to shop the 2016 Nordstom Anniversary Sale for Early Access! So if you haven’t done so yet, it’s a great time to snag a few deals. And if you don’t have Early Access, public access opens tomorrow, July 22!
I posted some of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites earlier this week, but today I’m sharing my personal shopping haul + a few hits and misses. Because at the end of the day, there are always a few surprises when shopping online!
My 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul
This Free People top was a miss for me. Even in an extra small, I feel like it will just flop off me at any moment. If I were in my 20s, though, I probably would’ve bought it anyway.
This Trouvé faux leather pleated skirt isn’t really a hit or a miss, the sizing is just odd. The first picture is a size small and even the XS is a bit on the large side.
You know those tops that are so incredibly amazing you need one in every color? That’s what this Trouvé top is. It’s one of those classic essentials and is air light and thin, perfect for layering. I brought it with me on my flight to Orlando and it was the perfect layering piece. I ended up buying a gray one at the store and ordered one in black online because I love it so much! You can size up for more length and it will still fit nice and snug. (Pictured in a medium.)
My favorite purchase from the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has to be these Marchesa chandelier earrings. They are GORGEOUS and even more amazing in real life. The perfect amount of bling and glam for any outfit.
Also a hit, these Tory Burch riding boots. They’re one of the best deals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale at a whopping $200 off full-price! They fit great and are really just lovely. I also fell in love with these Tory Burch sunglasses and picked up another one of these Free People bralettes because, well, for $12 why not?! It’s sold out now but I’m lusting after this one too.
And the Barefoot Dreams cardigan was even softer and dreamier in person than I imagined. It is BEAUTIFUL and another one where you could buy one in every color! Gray is sold out but they have this lovely ombré style in both black to grey and brown to cream. It’s $59 and will be going up to $92 after the sale ends on August 7th!
Still To Come
I also ordered this Lush Karly shift dress, which could easily transition to fall with boots and is a steal at just $31
Shop the Post
If you’re not familiar with the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’ll fill you in: It’s a wonderful reverse sale where you can shop NEW fall items on sale before they go up in price! The 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dates are July 14, 2016 through July 22, 2016 for Early Access and July 22 through Aug. 7 for Public Access.
How do you get Early Access to the Nordstrom sale? Open up either a Nordstrom credit card or a Nordstrom debit card! Don’t want another credit card? I hear ya. The debit card gives you Nordstrom online and in-store sale access, AND you rack up points for every dollar you spend, which is rewarded with wonderful $20 Nordstrom notes that come in the mail! You can use these Nordstrom notes to shop Nordstrom online or Nordstrom Rack.
On to the sale!! Here are some of my 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites. You can also shop my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks at the new Shop button at the top of the homepage and follow along on IG, Facebook and my email list as I keep adding more favorites throughout the coming weeks!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purses
This 3.1 Phillip Lim bucket bag is at the top of my lust list! It’s $446 off and comes in two different sizes. Other favorites are this ALLSAINTS tote in a beautiful buttery leather and this classic Tory Burch pebbled leather tote, which comes in black and grey. Need a dressy cross body bag? I like this one and this one.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Jewelry
These Kate Spade stud earrings are a steal at just $20. Kendra Scott pendant necklace down to $32 from $60 regular price. For that wedding, try this crystal bib necklace and I absolutely adore these Marchesa chandelier earrings.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dresses & Clothes
Yes, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale clothing can be a category in itself. I will post a follow up blog with my favorite finds under $150. In the meantime, this Leith V-neck dress is a steal at under $40, as is this shift dress. These skinny jeans are darling and just $60 and if you need a bootcut this season, try these. A beautiful bralette for just $15 and my favorite Free People bralette for just $12! (For even more fab bralettes, read this post.)
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Outerwear
Here’s the perfect little leather jacket and a beautiful rabbit fur vest. This Barefoot Dreams cardigan sells out every year (already sold out in one color before I could add it to my bag!) and this color block duster is cheap and trendy.
Nordstrom Anniversary Boots & Shoes
Save $70 on Hunter boots, these Tory Burch riding boots are $196 off and WILL sell out! There are also classic Frye boots, these cute peep toe booties, these slip-on sneaks, and OTK boots for just $109.
