2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went public yesterday which means I was finally able to shop it. It opens up for early access to the U.S. sooner than it does in Canada, but it went public for all on July 20.

My closest Nordstrom is just under an hour drive away and I lucked out because the store was DEAD and I got my size in everything I was looking for except one thing, which I am having shipped to my home from a Vancouver store. Just another awesome customer service perk at Nordstrom. I didn’t purchase everything here but I did try all of these items on.

I have saved my try-on session on my Instagram story highlights so follow me over @pinkandblueblog to check it out.

Here are some of my favourite finds of the sale this year:


Halogen Violet Genuine Calf Hair Mule

These shoes were my first try-on of the sale and I loved them the second I put them on! They are so comfortable and can be worn both dressy and casual.


BP Kerry Bootie

I love these booties. They are comfortable and more casual but I love the detail on the side. The mushroom colour was my favourite and they look so cute with a pair of jeans. I sized up 1/2 a size in these.


Steve Madden Reece Sock Bootie

I feel like these aren’t getting the attention they deserve! They are such a nice fit, and because the top part of the bootie is like a sock it suctions right to your leg. They are so sleek and would look great with a dress or pants.


BP Brice Notched Bootie

These are a must for fall. They are so comfortable and I love the style of them. They aren’t stiff around the ankle (sometimes I find booties will leave an indent just above my ankle when I walk), and are available in three other colours.


Leith Henley Woven Shirt – Black & White

This shirt is currently sold out. They only had XL at the location I was at and I am having it shipped from another store. I love it because it will be great for work and would look great under a black blazer, or casually with a pair of jeans. Hoping this restocks for you!


Socialite Button Front Top

This top is so soft and I love the fit. It is currently sold out in white but it also comes in black and burgundy. I sized up in this.


Leith Ribbed Shawl Cocoon Sweater

This cardigan is so versatile and comes in five colours. I love the brown spice colour for fall. I like the slouchy fit of it and you can wear it both dressy at the office or casual with a pair of jeans


Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Cardigan

This is the coziest sweater, EVER. These never go on sale so you need to snag it on sale while you can! It fits TTS. It comes in either S/M or L/XL.


Chelsea28 Oversize Open Cardigan

This oversized cardigan is a staple item for your wardrobe. You can throw it over a dress, tee, or tank. It comes in four other colours and the sizing is XS/S or M/L.


Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover

You will find me living in this every weekend at the hockey arena this winter while I watch my son play hockey. It is so soft and it does come in a full zipper option with a hood but I love the pullover. I sized up a size because I wanted it to be a loser, comfier fit.  (I have long arms and found the small was a little short in the sleeves.)


Leith Sleek Knit Midi Dress

This dress is super flattering. It is currently sold out but will hopefully re-stock. I loved it in black and fit true to size. You can pair it with a cardigan or a blazer.


Articles of Society – Sarah Skinny Jeans

These jeans are amazing and are such a great price in the sale. They are so soft and it feels like you are wearing a pair of leggings – they fit true to size.


Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

If you are going to purchase anything from the sale, it has to be these. I LOVE them! I can see why they are called the “live in” leggings. They hold everything in and are so comfortable – what more can you ask for? They are on major sale and come in two other colours. I got them in both black and navy.


BLANKNYC Meant to be Moto Jacket with Removable Hood

This faux leather jacket is actually really nice; unfortunately it is sold out online but will hopefully restock. It does come with a detachable hood which I would say detach immediately and toss aside. I think it looks so much better without the hood. I would size up a size in this, especially if you have long arms.


Adidas Originals Trefoil Tank

This tank is really comfy and fits well but wasn’t part of the sale in-store for some reason. It is showing as being included in the sale online. It fits true to size.


Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body XL Shimmer Shape, Hydrate & Glow

This was not something I was looking for but I sampled it and loved it. This is a fan favourite and you can currently purchase it in a limited edition jumbo size, and it’s included in the sale. It has de-puffing agents and gives the illusion of longer, leaner limbs ¬†while toning down any red pigments you have.

That’s my round-up of the sale. Happy Shopping!
