22 Staple Items From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Worth Grabbing

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to everyone with a Nordstrom card starting today! (9:30am EST).

This sale can be super overwhelming as there are so many amazing items so I’ve narrowed down 20 great staple pieces that you will get a lot of wear out of this fall plus can be styled multiple different ways! I took home all 20 of these items so you know that I truly love them as well!

(If an item is showing out of stock, bookmark this post & keep checking. Multiple items are suppose to be restocked as time goes on!) 


1.) BlankNYC Moto Jacket

I  love the color of this jacket! It’s so unique and different but will be so easy to wear with all things fall! I got my true size small and it fits perfectly. (If you plan on wearing a thick sweater underneath or wearing it zipped up, sizing up one might work best for you!)


2.) Free People Thermal

One of my favorite basics from the sale! I grabbed this in 3 colors because it’s easy to wear with denim or leggings all fall & winter long. Like most Free People items, it runs big. I got my true size small but I could have also sized down to an XS.

3.) BlankNYC Suede Jacket

Another winner jacket from the sale that I will get a ton of wear out of! This color goes with everything and it’s lighter than most of the other suede jackets I own. I got my true size small but if you plan on wearing a thick sweater underneath or wearing it zipped up, maybe size up one.



4.) Nike Sneakers

A surprise favorite for me! I saw these in person and fell in love! They are super super comfortable, true to size & the price tag is under $50. Obviously they aren’t for everyone, but if you are loving them and wondering if they are comfortable, they sure are!


5.) Marc Fisher Boots

The perfect little fall boot. The color, the comfort and easy to wear with almost any fall outfit!

6.) Basic Long Sleeve Top

This is a repeat find from last year that is back! The perfect long sleeve top that is super stretchy and great for layering under jackets, sweaters and perfect for leggings.

7.) Socialite Thermal Long Sleeve Tee

This top is also a repeat from last year and a good one! This is another great basic tee that can be worn under all jackets for fall.


8.) UGG Slippers

A fabulous, under $60 find. And UGGS are hard to find on sale! These are like marshmallows for your feet and come in a ton of colors – whole sizes only so go with the size up if you are between sizes.


9.) Steve Madden Mules

Probably one of the top selling shoes from the sale so far and I know exactly why! They are PERFECT for fall, perfect for mom life and the perfect price. Whatever you do, make sure you size up at least a 1/2 size and buy them in at least 2 colors. HA!


10.) Oversized Zella Tee

Another surprise favorite for me and my sister! This is a tee that can be worn during a workout or out on the town with leggings and jeans. You can size down if you want but I went with my true size small.


11.) All In Favor Stretchy Basic Tee

This is a fantastic basic tee! Stretchy, under $16 and comes in a ton of colors.

12.) Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

I’ve had my Spanx Faux Leather leggings for years now and they still feel and look brand new. They are the perfect legging for fall. I’m 5’4 and wear the size medium regular which is sizing up a size for me.

13.) Free People Oversized Sweater

I’m really hoping that this sweater is restocked because I want it in all the colors! It’s oversized and so so comfy. Wearing a size small but I probably could have sized down to an XS too.

14.) Tory Burch Booties

Another surprise find for me that is a winner! These were selling like wildfire when I tried them on and I know why. They are super super comfortable and TORY on sale! So good! I sized up a 1/2 size.

15.) Free People Oversized Tee

Another fabulous basic that is perfect for leggings or jeans. Runs oversized but I got my true size small. (It also has thumb holes….love those little things!).

16.) Vince Camuto Booties

An upgraded version from the fabulous and popular Gigietta boot from last year. These are so comfortable, a great height and come in a ton of colors.

17.) Leith Long Cardigan

Probably one of the comfiest cardigans I’ve tried on in a while. The perfect piece for fall! Comes in a ton of colors and runs true to size.


18.) Caslon Button Up Sweater

This sweater just screams fall! Not itchy one bit, warm and comes in a bunch of colors.


19.) Cozy Gibson Top

Well guess what….another great basic! I will live in this all fall long and it’s a great top for leggings.

20.) Barefoot Dreams Cardigan

Goodness goodness…this piece is a HOT HOT item! So many of you are hoping for a restock on this and I’m crossing my fingers for you! It runs true to size and of course, like all Barefoot Dreams, it’s extremely comfy.


21.) BlankNYC Faux Moto Jacket with Removable Fur

It’s no secret that I love this jacket! It’s great for now or fall without the fur OR in the winter with the fur piece as it acts like a scarf. Also, there are so many ways to wear it!

22.) Rails Utility Jacket

The popular jacket from last year now comes in blush pink! I will wear this all fall long and in the spring next year! Don’t miss this one!

Have a fabulous shopping day cardholders and if you can’t shop until next week, bookmark this post and come back on your day to shop!

    Have you washed the Socialite thermal yet? There are some less-than-stellar reviews on the Nordstrom site.
