Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites + a $250 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway!

It's here!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started on Thursday.
I look forward to this sale every year....my birthday is in May & I always ask for Nordstrom gift cards for my birthday and I save them for this amazing sale.

Now, a lot of people (and bloggers) go CRAZY for this sale and buy ALL.THE.THINGS.

I have spent this entire Summer purging and getting rid of things, so my mindset for the sale this year has been different. I only bought things that I actually needed and I only bought things that are staples & classic and that will get a lot of use. 

I passed on so many things that were cute & that were really good deals because honestly? I didn't "need" them. I used self control and only let myself use gift cards that I have been saving. 

I'm going to share with you my favorites. 
These include things I bought this year.
There are also several things that I already own that I bought last year at the sale or that I have previously purchased & they are now part of this year's sale, so I will point those out also! 

Here is what I bought this year:
 I needed a pair of cognac booties & fell in love with these:

Under $100 and they also come in black or gray.

Last year I got this shirt in black/white stripe:
 This year I got it in this color:
Under $20 and comes in several colors. Even if some are sold out, they re-stock throughout the sale, so check back!


 I don't have a pair of long leggings (I have a couple crop leggings) but I needed a pair of long ones for when I go running in the winter. The crop ones didn't keep me warm enough for winter.
I was hoping these would be a part of the sale (they usually are!) and I got the black ones.
They also come in a pretty navy & red.

This one was definitely more of a want than a need, but I had gift cards...one even left over from Christmas...soooooooo I got it :)
The color is a little different in person (I like the color better in person)
I plan on wearing this with a black tee, jeans & booties.

Okay, so that's all I bought this year! I didn't go crazy and was really intentional about what I was buying. 

Here are things I already own that are part of the sale:
These pajamas are everything! 

Modal material is the best...so soft. 

I have these in other patterns, but these are 2 of my favorites that are part of the sale. 
They are only $42 and will last YEARS!
These would make great Christmas presents.

This North Face Vest.
 So much yes!
 I wear mine a lot in the winter, probably 2-3 times a week. Sometimes in California, we don't need a jacket, so these vests are perfect.
Also, on cold ski days, I wear this vest under my Ski Jacket.
Comes in 4 colors.

Love these jeans.

So soft & comfortable.

And, of course...you can't forget about this cardigan....
I've had mine for a couple years & its so cozy.

It comes in ivory as well.

I have these booties in black:

I love the contrast in the heel.
These come in 4 colors.

I also have these booties.

They are waterproof!
They come in 4 colors.

So, there you have it....a few of my favorite finds from the Anniversary Sale.
If you want to see all the items available on sale, you can click HERE and then you can search by category.
 
What are going to buy? What caught your eye? I always love hearing about what other people are getting during the sale (or want to get!)
