Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

It is that time of year where Nordstrom has their famous Anniversary Sale. I have been shopping this sale for years. There are so many items on sale it can get overwhelming. Hopefully, I can break it down a bit and help navigate the sale with this post. I want to share my favorites and what I am buying. There are certain things I buy every year as classic staples.

Disclaimer: I do make a small commission on each Sale which contributes to my Paris fund. Thank you in advance!

One quick tip: If you have your eye on something that you absolutely want. Go ahead and check out right away. You can make multiple purchases. Last year the site crashed and I wasn’t able to get on for hours later. I lost my cart.

diptyque candles Nordstrom Sale everyday parisian favorite

These Diptyque Candles ALWAYS Sell Out super fast. I love them because you get 5 for the price of less than one. You can burn them all or split them up to give as gifts.

Longchamp Le Pilage Tote

I have owned many Longchamp Bags over the years. I own Black, Navy, and Khaki. I use the larger version of this bag as a travel overnight bag. This is a great bag for walking around Paris as it has a top zip.

Early Access Starts July 12 at 12:30 ET (You have to have a Nordstrom Card for this)

Public Access July 19th. Open to Everyone to Shop

I have had a Nordstrom Card since I moved to Chicago so this is an added perk. I will say a lot of items will sell out in that one week Early Access period. Please do not feel pressure to open a credit card unless you personally feel it is a good decision for you.

This is when I restock my favorite bras from Natori, underwear, jeans, blondo boots, and Sisley Skincare. Fall Items are on Sale as well. I am looking for sweaters while it is 90 degrees outside and possibly a long coat for Fall/Winter.

blondo over the knee boots

I am so excited to own a pair of Blondo Over The Knee Boots. $150. I have a leather pair from Coach that I love wearing in the Winter.


If you are going to buy one item for your Fall wardrobe, I would recommend a pair of Blondos. They are my favorite walking shoes for Paris. Plus, they are waterproof!! I have 5 pairs and counting and will be ordering another pair with the Sale. I wear the to the knee black suede boots ALL the time in the Fall/Winter. I also love the booties and for Summer, I have been wearing the Gracie slip on. I may be Blondos biggest fan and if you ask other readers, once you try them you are going to love them too. I get messages weekly from readers about how much they love their blondos!


I have been wearing the Natori Feathers Bras for forever. You have to size up at least once. Don’t be discouraged about the size you are ordering. I can either wear a 30/32 in Natori. I have every color and as long as you hand wash them, they last for a while.

You can stock up on Hanky Panky thongs at the sale. I personally love having classic colors nude and black in my drawer but the colors can be fun too.

I SWEAR by this! I have had one tube for the last six months and it changed my eye lashes. I use it once daily. This is buy one get one free. I am stocking up on this for sure.

olive green drapey coat

Yes, I bought both of these coats. Chicago and Paris are COLD and I pretty much spend most of the year in sweaters, boots, and coats.

avec les filles moto camel jacket

I ordered the last small in this jacket. I wanted to grab it before it was gone. I was hoping for a longer one but I love the color on this one.
