Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 is once again upon us. I’ve been covering this sale for 5ish years or so and every time it makes me more and more excited about fashion. My team and I had so much fun going through literally thousands of pieces to create outfits we know you will feel great wearing. What’s so fun about fashion these days is that there really are no rules which makes mixing and matching these pieces so effortless. So wear that polka dot top with those snakeskin booties and own it girl because your wardrobe is about to get some major upgrades!
I always start my posts off with my favorites from the sale and things I think will sell out fast. If you are looking for specific fall trends to shop for, make sure to check out
this post. When it comes down to it, lead with your heart and buy what you love. In fact, buy it in 2 sizes because if it doesn’t fit, it might not be in stock when you try to exchange. What can I say, it’s the nature of the sale! Size and fit comments are below, but if there is no note, you can assume it runs TTS.
You might also notice a few new faces in the post this year. Many of you asked to see the pieces on different women, so my team helped showcase some of our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks as well as my mom and the lovely, Paula, who helped us represent the tall girls (she stands at 5’10)!
