The coronavirus pandemic may have halted pretty much every facet of life as we know it, but one thing that remains the same is that Nordstrom is still having their epic anniversary sale (going 50+ years strong)—and this year is looking to be one of their best ever. From August 19 through August 30 (although it technically starts August 4 for selected cardmembers and August 13 for all cardmembers!), you can score major discounts on everything including top designer brands from the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary sale.
Whether you’re looking for new bed sheets, new fall booties, a new handbag or an entire new wardrobe (out with the old, in with the new, Mama!), there is literally something for everyone during this not-to-be-missed sale of the season. And because you can’t do *anything* without snagging something for your little human(s), you’ll be happy to know that the discounts are plentiful in the virtual kid aisles as well. We’re talking steals on kids jackets, pajamas, rain boots and more.
Because it would literally take you hours to go through the seemingly endless list of discounts, we’re doing the hard work for you and calling out the best of the best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for 2020. *Most* of this selection is under $100, because we obviously love a good deal. We added a couple splurges, only because the discounts are worth it. Happy shopping!
This is the ultimate fall dress. Throw a leather jacket on with some sneakers, and boom. A casual, punky-floral look that’ll always be timeless. It’s the prefect length and hugs all the right spots.
You really can’t have too many BeautyBlenders. They’re beauty staples for a reason, and we credit them for giving us even, dewy skin that brushes (or fingers) just can’t quite offer. Plus, we love this “Electric Feels” collection. So fun! Plus, the DEAL on these? Gimme.
If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to splurge on a pair of Spanx’s faux leather leggings, the time has come—during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale they’re $34 off! These high-waisted and full-coverage leggings are insanely flattering, and a true must-have staple for your fall wardrobe. They have a nice glossy finish that you can dress up or dress down and no center seam for a smooth, streamlined silhouette.
Now’s finally the time to go a little crazy on cult-fave beauty staples like Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk set, which comes with a full-size (yup, no dinky travel-size here) lipstick, lip-liner, and collagen lip bath in the iconic shade Pillow Talk, which is a soft nude-pink that looks good on literally everyone. This deal is just waaay too good to pass up.
Made for high-impact workouts, this sports bra still provides the ultimate support with an invisible underwire and light foam cups. Especially when you’ve got a bigger bust, it pays to pay more for a high-quality sports bra that will actually last you (versus cheaper ones that stretch and wear out over time). Natori’s sports bras are known for being super comfy — and for getting the job done whether you’re training for a 10k, or doing yoga at home.
Nobody would ever guess these classic and shiny hoop earrings by Kate Spade were under $30. While we’re not going crazy with jewelry this year, since we’ve got very few places to be, these lightweight hoops are great for everyday wear — with a ‘lil extra bling.
If you’re like us, you probably need to swap out your white sheets every six months or so. Either it falls victim to one of your littles’ accidents, the dog decides to jump in bed with muddy paws, or you yourself spill coffee or wine on ’em because nothing white stays white forever. These sheets from UGG are MEGA soft and durable, so you won’t see rips anytime soon. Just get this set before it’s gone!
Getting by on a rainy summer day without rain boots is one thing, but attempting to enter the fall season without a durable pair isn’t the smartest idea—especially if you live in the northeast. Hunter rain boots are about as good as it gets when it comes to keeping your feet and ankles dry when the rain starts coming down. And, thanks to a traction-gripping sole, you won’t go flying in the air if the ground is slippery.
Similar to blouses, we’re definitely not in trouser-mode right now. But what if pants were so comfortable (and cute) that you forgot they were even pants? We love these high waisted pants with a built-in belt that add an effortless put-together look.
An end to hot, humid weather may be in sight, but you should still plan on chugging your eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. A S’well is just what you need to encourage you to do so. It’s double-walled and made of stainless steel, which helps enable it to keep drinks cold or hot for up to 24 hours. Also nice to know: S’well donates a portion of the proceeds from each bottle purchase to UNICEF to help provide clean drinking water for children around the world.
If you need a cardigan that is basically a pumpkin spice latte in clothing form, this will be your new, autumnal BFF. It’s warm, cozy to extreme levels, and is the perfect shade of burnt sienna. It’s purposely oversized, make it feel like you’re cloaked in your favorite throw.
People rave about Wacoal bras, so if you’re in the market for a new, comfortable bra to wear with just about anything, from a sleek blouse to a casual T-shirt, this is a good buy. It’s made from a soft fabric that covers all the right areas (you know, not just your boobs themselves) and has foam-lined cups that smooth and add shape where you need it—sans wires.
We love us some discounted athleisure. Adidas has some of the best sportswear, so we’ll take a few of these, thankyouverymuch. Especially since gym and yogawear has been our daily uniforms lately, we’ll take the opportunity to stock ip on some high-quality loungewear (and hey, maybe once the gyms safely re-open, we’ll use ’em when we’re sweating it out).
Just the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner alone in this set is worth $22, but with this deal you also get their travel-size Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow as well. The eyeshadow is just as long-wearing as the eyeliner, for a look that lasts all day, all night or both.
It’s almost fall, which means your closet deserves at least one utility jacket or blazer. We love this one, because with its cotton and viscose blend, it’s super soft and yet super practical. It provides warmth, but it’s not too heavy, which makes it ideal for those early crisp autumn days. And it goes with just about any and all outfits.
While many of us are still working from home and don’t need to worry about fancy blouses, this flow-y, pretty top is comfortable enough for a Zoom call *and* dinner with the family. It’s also one of those versatile tops you can pair with leggings, wear to Thanksgiving dinner (it gives you so much room to breathe!), or throw on for a casual date night.
It’s all about the eyes this season, since, well, nobody can see our lipstick (masks and all). This MAC set is seriously gorgeous, and gives you an effortless, natural look with a variety of shadows and their cult-fave eyeliner and mascara.
Madewell’s totes are tried and true. They’re simple, made of super quality leather, and add a modern pop to our everyday outfit. Plus, they’re super roomy (they’ll fit your laptop, wallet, kids’ crap, a handful of tampons, whatever book you’re reading, and anything else you need to throw in there — just in case. If it’s out of stock already, check this similar one out.
Everyone needs at least one pair of classic and comfy sneaks, and these Nikes are it. Wear them with your leggings, your date night dress, favorite pair of jeans — you name it. These white leather sneaks with a watermelon pink Nike check are going to be our go-to shoes all fall (and winter) long.
They may be called “Mom Jeans” but can we just change the name to “Pants That Are Actually Comfortable And Make My Butt Look Amazing”? That’s better. You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters. This iconic wash is closet staple-worthy, and will pair with any shoe style you’re in the mood for.
Hello, fall. Why yes, I will be taking out out all of my jackets and sweaters thankyouverymuch. If you’re looking for an affordable (yet high-quality) faux leather jacket, this is a great option that’ll keep you warm and keep you looking cool, always.
This cleanser truly makes your face feel clean without completely stripping it of its natural oils. Best of all? People love it because it also removes makeup, so no need to use a makeup remover before cleansing! One and done, baby.
We refuse to wear things that aren’t cozy these days, but we do still wanna look cute. This wrap jacket provides warmth, it’s classy, and it feels more like a soft sweater than it does structured jacket, which it still looks like. We’ll be wearing this all fall and winter long.
Plaid is a fall essential and so is the buttery-soft fabric that makes up this dreamy rustic button-down. The long sleeves have a one-button cuff that you can wear unbuttoned for a more relaxed feel. It’s perfect for layering or just wearing over a pair of leggings. This shirt runs on the small size, so consider sizing up!
If you’re on the hunt for a comfortable mule for the fall, look no further than this minimalist Madewell steal (it’s almost 50 percent off during the Nordstrom anniversary sale!). It’s made from leather (or genuine calf-hair, depending on which style you buy) and has a cushy padded footbed that makes you feel like you’re wearing slippers.
The beauty of a teddy coat, is that they really never go out of style. They’re warm, go with everything, you can dress them up or down depending on your accessories — they’re the perfect winter coat. And we are snatching this one from Sam Edelman because that price is too good to pass up.
Score your kid that adorable pair of Uggs well ahead of the winter season while they’re on sale! These glittering short booties are perfect for outside play, keeping your child’s feet nice and warm with their UGGplush lining and wool-rich blend that’s crafted to feel like real shearling. They come in two cute hues: pink and goat (glittery grey).
There’s really no reason why you should pay big bucks for your baby or toddler’s shoes, since they’ll grow out of ’em in mere months (sometimes month, singular). So when we see cute Vans on sale, we’re jumping at the opportunity to throw them on our mini mes (and take as many Instagram photos as possible while they still fit).
We love Northface, but we don’t love Northface’s prices. Get your kid a Northface jacket on sale before the weather gets really crummy. Just beware, this jacket runs small, so if your kid prefers a looser fit (and who doesn’t with jackets?) you may want to order a size up.
If you’ve been waiting for an amazing sale like this to order some big-ticket baby gear, like your car seat, you’re in luck! One of the most beloved infant car seat brands, Nuna, is on sale for more than $100 off. This is one of the lightest car seats around, weighing in at just 5.7 lb sans base! Parents also love how easy it is to install the car seat, as well as its high safety ratings.
Kick the end of summer off with a silky set of new sheets along with two shams and a duvet cover. They’re 100 percent organic and 325 thread count with a button closure that makes dressing and undressing the duvet a no-stress activity. This classy pewter color goes with just about any bedroom decor you have going on—dress it up or dress it down with some throw pillows and you’re good to go.
