My must-have pieces from the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (under $100)

The 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here, and I wanted to share my top picks with you today!

Here’s the deal: I do a lot of my shopping at Nordstrom. And whenever possible, I like to find things on sale. That doesn’t happen all that often, except for one amazing time of year … The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, when there’s a ton of good deals to be had.

It can be overwhelming to go to the site and try to find the best stuff, so that’s why I wanted to make it easier for you and pull out some great options in one post.

By the way, the sale is open to cardholders right now, and it opens to the public on August 18. But you can preview the items and add them to your “wish list” today, because things sell out quickly. 

What I’m sharing here are things I have already, plan to order or have on my wish list, and EVERYTHING is under $100. (Also, most items are pretty casual, because I know most of us aren’t exactly dressing up a lot now.)

Women’s clothing

Faux leather leggings

If I could pick ONE item that everyone should grab on sale, it would be these faux leather leggings. I’d size up (I wear a medium in these), and they are so versatile and comfortable for dressing up or down. (By the way, they also come in petite.)

Modal pajamas

Everyone needs a modal pajama set, because the fabric and fit is so comfy. Love these pajamas.

And this modal sleep shirt is so cute. I actually love a good sleep shirt.

Animal print cardigan

I have a cardigan from this brand, and it’s the softest sweater situation ever. I’m dying over this animal print cardigan.

Super soft cardigan

If you’re not into prints and like a solid, I have this cardigan already, and it’s so good. One of those pieces that will last forever.

Modal detailed casual twist shirt

I love pieces that work as workout wear or casual wear. This twist top has the perfect amount of detail to make it interesting, yet also simple. Must have.

Sleeveless midi dress

You could wear this solid-color midi sleeveless dress a million ways. Love it.

Tie-waist dress

I enjoy wearing dresses so much, but I like them to be classic enough to wear for a long time. This shirt-dress with buttons and a tie waist is perfection. Want it!

Oversized shirt

This oversized shirt would go perfectly with the faux leather leggings mentioned above. I’m into a loose top that lets you breathe, but still looks cute.

Oversized denim jacket

I have an oversized denim jacket, and it’s so comfy, but cute. This is a perfect staple item for the closet.

Grey skinny jeans

I have two pairs of this style of jean, because they are so good. They are high-waisted, super reasonably priced, and they are quite slimming. Check out the new grey color.

Live in leggings

I’ve mentioned these soft leggings several times, because they are great for working out or wearing out. I love them for yoga and barre. You can’t beat the price on sale, and they come in several colors.

Live in joggers

Because I love the leggings version so much, I may have to grab these simple and comfy joggers from the same brand and style. Who doesn’t need an extra pair of joggers?

Ruffle romper

Have you ever seen a piece of clothing that you are pretty certain would put you in a good mood the second you slide it on? This fluffy-sleeve romper does that for me. Must have.

Super cool bomber jacket

I want this bomber jacket in print and in solid. But I’m partial to the animal print. This isn’t something anyone needs in their closet, but it’s certainly something I want in mine.

Women’s shoes and accessories

Coin pendant

These coin pendant necklaces are so in right. Love this one.

Slip-on sneakers

I have these slip-on sneakers in black, and they are so comfy, supportive and super stylish. They work with almost any outfit. They have plenty of other colors too.

Faux shearling slippers

If you have wood floors and your house gets cold in the fall and winter, then you need some of these fuzzy slippers. My current slippers (in the closet until summer is over) are so old, so these ones would be a good upgrade at the right price.

Plain white sneakers

These plain white sneakers are timeless, they go with everything, and I love them.


If you’ve never had one of this brand/style of underwear, you are seriously missing out. Grab them all, in every color. You won’t be disappointed.

Beauty and other

Repair hair-care system

Whenever I get my hair done, I get an Olapex treatment added on to help with damage and conditioning, and boy that stuff works. You can get the whole set of treatments on sale right now. Such a deal.

Lux hair-brush set

I’m in major need of some new brushes, and this set of everything you need from wet to dry brushes looks amazing. Definitely want this one.

Microfiber throw blanket

I’ve recommended this brand of sweater twice in this post already, and I’ve heard the microfiber throw blankets are just as soft. This throw would make an awesome gift.

And those are my picks!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today to see my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale choices, my friends! Happy shopping! Let’s have a great week! 🙂
