Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide 2021

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for 2021 has begun! I got to shop in store yesterday for early access and it felt amazing to be back in the dressing rooms. I’m sharing all of my favorite items below! I ended up having to order a few things online, so I will update this post when they come in.

Open Edit Cozy Double V Long Sleeve Throw On Dress: Sale $39.90, After Sale $69.00 – This dress is SO cozy! I did end up buying this because I knew I could lounge around the house in it as well as dress it up with some booties. Fits TTS.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Move Platform High Top Sneaker: Sale $59.90, After Sale $80.00 – My favorite pair of shoes in the sale, hands down! I have had my eye on a pair of black high top Converse sneakers so I had to get these. The platform makes them SO flattering & they are a very light shoe compared to other Converses I own. I saw reviews saying these run small but I got my normal 7.5!

Open Edit Faux Leather Trousers: Sale $39.90, After Sale $59.00 – I was so excited for these pants, I love the baggy fit! Sadly, the bottoms did not hit on the correct spot on me and I didn’t want to get them hemmed. These pants would be perfect on someone who has thinner legs than I do! Fit TTS.

Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie: Sale $329.90, After Sale $495.00 – Okay hear me out on this, this is actually the PERFECT sock bootie. Worth it to invest for a boot that is water resistant and can be worn for years. The only reason I didn’t purchase is because I have a pair of black sock booties at home! Fit TTS.

Halogen Rib Turtleneck Sleeveless Midi Dress: Sale $38.90, After Sale $59.00 – I love this turtleneck dress! This would be so perfect for date night! Fits TTS. I did not end up purchasing this though because I realized I have a similar dress at home!

All Saints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket: Sale $325.90, After Sale $489.00 – I splurged on this leather jacket this year! I don’t have a real black leather jacket & I figured this was the best time to get one since I wear them so often in the fall. I have had numerous faux leather jackets throughout the years and the quality is just not the same. This jacket also comes in army green & ivory! It runs extremely small – I ended up having to order a larger size online (went up 2 sizes from my usual).

Steve Madden Cedar Chain Bootie: Sale $99.90, After Sale $149.95 – This bootie is adorable! I love the chain detailing, very on trend and adds a little something to your outfit. I didn’t end up purchasing though because I have so many black booties at home! Fits TTS.

Treasure & Bond Mixed Plaid Blazer Jacket: Sale $92.90, After Sale $139.00 – This jacket is MUCH cuter in person than online, I actually love the mixed plaid concept and the color is great. Fits TTS but is a little oversized which I like.

BLANKNYC Night Walks Faux Leather Leggings: Sale $39.90, After Sale $68.00 – I ended up loving these faux leather leggings and wasn’t expecting that. I have the SPANX leggings but they don’t actually look like faux leather – I wanted a pair that actually looked like leather and these fit the bill! I sized up one size because they are tight to get on, but I’m actually thinking I may need to exchange for my regular size now.

Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie: Sale $329.90, After Sale $495.00

BP. Women’s Crop Sweater Vest: Sale $22.90, After Sale $35.00 – I love this little trendy crop sweater vest! Also comes in orange which they didn’t have in store. I’m usually a medium in crop tops and I sized up to a large in this.

BLANKNYC Night Walks Faux Leather Leggings: Sale $39.90, After Sale $68.00

Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie: Sale $329.90, After Sale $495.00

Treasure & Bond Long Wool Shirt Jacket: Sale $98.90, After Sale $149.00 – A long plaid shacket! I love the pattern & length! I went back and forth for a long time and didn’t end up getting this (too many plaid options!) but I’m still kind of sad about it. This runs huge, I sized down from a medium to an XS (and it’s still very oversized).

BLANKNYC Night Walks Faux Leather Leggings: Sale $39.90, After Sale $68.00

Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie: Sale $329.90, After Sale $495.00

Levi’s Dad Water Resistant Faux Leather Zip Jacket: Sale $89.90, After Sale $150.00 – The stylist at Nordstrom pulled this for me and I was very skeptical because it actually DOES look like one of my dad’s old jackets. I put it on and fell in love! I love the oversized fit & length (I only have cropped bomber jackets) and I feel like it still looks dressy with the right outfit! Fits TTS.

Open Edit Date Night Body-Con Cinch Cocktail Dress: Sale $29.90, After Sale $55.00 – This dress is so cute & trendy and you can’t beat the sale price! Fits TTS.

Steve Madden Cedar Chain Bootie: Sale $99.90, After Sale $149.95

BB Dakota Brixton Plaid Shirt Jacket: Sale $89.90, After Sale $139.00 – I love this shacket! Very cozy yet light, comes in 3 colors. Fits TTS. I did not end up taking it home with me for one reason – it is a little too short on me! I have a long torso and it doesn’t hit as far enough in the back as I would prefer. If you don’t have this issue, I would definitely buy!

1.STATE Rib Knit Side Slit Midi Pencil Skirt: Sale $45.90, After Sale $69.00 – This skirt is really cozy and I love the blue color! Very flattering and fits TTS. I am regretting that I didn’t buy this actually, but I have a few sweater knit midi skirts at home. NOTE: this has a matching top which is did NOT like at all! The top runs small but big at the same time? Very odd fit and doesn’t look good with the skirt. The skirt itself is great though!

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Move Platform High Top Sneaker: Sale $59.90, After Sale $80.00

MOTHER The Insider High Waist Crop Step Fray Hem Jeans: Sale $159.90, After Sale $238.00 – It’s hard to tell from the photo (there’s also a shirt lump tucked in these, where’s that monkey emoji?) but these jeans are AMAZING! Everyone in the dressing room near me was raving about these. I think the sale is the perfect time to get some designer jeans on sale! These fit TTS and have some stretch.

Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie: Sale $329.90, After Sale $495.00

Avec Les Filles Plaid Faux Shearling Teddy Trucker Jacket: Sale $99.90, After Sale $189.00 – This jacket is SO CUTE! I love the plaid, the teddy material, the shacket design, the lavender color…but I didn’t buy this because of the length on me. I just prefer a slightly longer jacket on me! I always size down one in this brand.

MOTHER The Insider High Waist Crop Step Fray Hem Jeans: Sale $159.90, After Sale $238.00

Aquatalia Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie: Sale $329.90, After Sale $495.00

BB Dakota Prep Cool Plaid Longline Blazer: Sale $59.90, After Sale $99.00 – So even though I have a lot of plaid blazers, I also got this one because the length is amazing! It can be tough to find longline blazers and it was on sale 🙂 Fits TTS.

Levi’s Ribcage Ripped High Waist Ankle Straight Leg Jeans: Sale $71.90, After Sale $108.00 – The second pair of jeans I bought, I wanted a pair of straight leg jeans since they’re very trendy right now. Price is so good & I also love Levi’s. These fit TTS but don’t really have any stretch. (Also, I swear these are flattering, there’s a top tucked into them causing a lump that I didn’t notice until now)

Prada Loafers: not in the sale, I’ve been saving up to buy them for a year! Linked a pair of loafers to style this outfit with that are available in the sale!

Avec Les Filles Plaid Shawl Collar Coat: Sale $149.90, After Sale $279.00 – My favorite coat in the sale! The tan & black make it very versatile & I love the shawl collar – it adds a little something different! I always size down one size in this brand.

BLANKNYC Snap Faux Leather Skirt: Sale $39.90, After Sale $68.00 – This skirt is MUCH better in person and I ended up taking it home with me (plus you can’t beat the price!). I haven’t been a fan of the suede version of this skirt in the past but it’s great with a different fabric! Runs small, I sized up 1 size.

Prada Loafers: not in the sale

ALO Real Sports Bra: Sale $44.90, After Sale $72.00 – Could not be more obsessed with this color!! I love everything ALO so I got this top in pink lava and blue. Fits TTS. You can also buy matching biker shorts & leggings!

BLANKNYC Cinched Back Denim Shirt: Sale $44.90, After Sale $78.00 – I was skeptical about this shirt (the stylist pulled this for me) and ended up loving it! Fits TTS and is very soft. I wasn’t going to get this because I love my denim jacket, but this shirt is very lightweight and doesn’t feel like a jacket so I figured I would get some use out of it!

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Move Platform High Top Sneaker: Sale $59.90, After Sale $80.00

I will keep adding to the post when some of my new items come in, but here are the other things I ordered that I haven’t gotten a chance to style yet:
