Thank you to Nordstrom and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post!

It’s one of the best sales of the year, and it’s finally open to the public.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is where I start to do my Fall shopping (it’s great because the sale features new, Fall merchandise that goes back up to regular price) and stock up on basics like these Natori bras (the softest, prettiest t-shirt bra!), great sweaters (this + this are both in my cart right now as I think about round 2), my fav Spanx leggings (I have 3 pairs!), and anything from Barefoot Dreams (I bought this circle cardigan three or four Nordstrom sales ago and it’s been a pandemic staple – SO SOFT. It is almost sold out, but available at full price here OR this cardigan is fab and a part of the sale!).

It’s also a great time to get beauty products on sale. This NuFace set (sadly now sold out – maybe try the GlowPro, or get it at full price), this duo of one of my fav wrinkle serums (makes a noticeable difference overnight), and this set from Charlotte Tilbury (you know Pillow Talk is my fav) would be my top picks.

This year I only bought a few things. But I LOVE what I did buy. I bought this floral dress from Vince (perfect for right now but will be amazing with boots later on). This little mini from Madewell, new black skinny jeans (also Madewell), this long but lean grandpa cardigan. And this set of Le Labo candles (the Le Labo set sold out but the Nest set is still available!).

    I know you don’t do many “How to Style _____” posts anymore, but I would LOVE to see a post on how to style the Spanx leather leggings. I bought them during last year’s NSale and loved them, but everytime I went to style them something just looked off and I would change back into jeans. I know they are a staple for fall, but now with a COVID they are even more so (all hail the elastic waistband!). Loved your picks as usual, and always love your laid back honest coverage of the NSale ❤️

    That Vince dress looks so much better on you than on the model! I had seen it and thought it was a little meh, but now I’m sorely tempted …

      I TOTALLY agree. I thought it was very…not cute…on the model, but it looks so beautiful on Grace!

    I bought a pair of the Dr. Scholls leopard print combat boots, the Blondo waterproof chunky heeled booties, and a pair of Zella Live-in leggings to try since everyone raves about them. I’m so excited for my purchases to arrive and to look forward to fall and winter!

      Ooooh fun!!!! Sounds like you did well. I’m really intrigued by the Blondo boots – they look so cute AND they’re waterproof? So smart.

    Grace! You have the most gorgeous legs! You should show them off more often! Especially during the summer! Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Love love love the Blondo booties if anyone is eyeing them. I got them last year (not anniversary sale) and wore them all winter.

    Natori has the best bras and I picked a few up, too.

    Some other readers already mentioned this and I also wanted to say that the Vince dress looks incredible on you! I wasn’t super into it, until I saw you wear it.

    Thanks for sharing your fave picks. This was a super manageable Anniversary Sale blog post to take in.
