As you know, this is my jam. I’ve covered this sale for many many years now and it’s my absolute favorite thing to blog about because I get to connect with so many of you throughout it. But for now I’m going to cut the crap, because you’re here for the deals! Here’s a quick rundown of how this post works and how to shop it efficiently! -I’ve ONLY outlined my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES from each category. No frills, no fillers, no fluff, just the good stuff here. The items that I’m really passionate about, the ones that I’m personally buying and the ones that I see working for 95% of you! Of course, I liked more pieces from each category, but I feel like the 5 items that I highlight per category as BEST OF THE BEST! -I’m detailing sizing by each piece but not going into a ton of details because there’s no time for that lol. Just know that I LOVED each piece that I’m sharing here and I personally purchased about 75% of what’s in this post. -I put in BOLD next to the items that I think will sell out tomorrow. BUY THEM NOW. Don’t let these pieces cart sit, because I’m usually pretty spot on with my sell out predictions based on years past. -Please consider shopping through my links if this post was at all helpful to you. You can ensure that I receive credit by clicking on one of the links in this post right before you check out. Also, please avoid shopping through the Nordstrom App because noone is given credit and only Nordstrom benefits. -The link for each item is ABOVE the photo of it. This has been causing confusion lately, so that’s how it’ll work. -Stay tuned for lots of giveaways!!!!!!

They have a ton of washes this year (see them all HERE), but I decided on black. Four: Caslon Crop Flare | The crop flare is a HUGE trend for Fall to wear with flats, mules and heels. Caslon nailed it with this pair. A clean wash, flattering fit and KILLER price. I have a 28 on in these and thought that they were a little snug. Size up if on the fence. Five: STS Blue Emma | Didn’t get to try these on, but am always a fan of STS and think that these are another great basic jean for the price! I’d suggest these as a distressed option. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 | Top Picks: Basic Tops One: Convertible Cardigan (SELL OUT ALERT) | omgggggg this has been a SYS Reader favorite for TWO years now and y’all it’s on Anniversary this year for UNDER $50!!!! WHAT?!?! This version is not quite as long in the bodice, but they other functionality is the exact same. Wear it as a wrap sweater or long waterfall cardigan. It’s uber cozy and perfect for nursing, traveling, lounging, errands…you name it! Buy two colors! Two: Thermal Long Sleeve Top (SELL OUT ALERT) | I was SO SO unexpectedly impressed with this top. It’s a waffle knit henley and SO cozy. The fit was sort of tomboy sexy if that makes sense and I loved it with the high waisted jeans. For the $24 price, I want multiple colors. I liked the way the small fit! Three: Hi Low Butter Soft Tunic | Another reader favorite from last year that’s back and better this year (better price too!). Butter soft and great with leggings or jeans. I’m wearing the XS here and would have preferred the S (so TTS). I also love that it now comes in fashion colors. Four: V Neck Sweater | I was surprised and impressed with sweater! It’s a great basic, great shape and overall a wonderful buy at UNDER $30! On top of it being adorable, it’s equally as cozy! Five: Muscle Tank (SELL OUT ALERT) | This was a top pick last year (it sold out day one) and it’s back this year! This year’s version is less of a tunic and more suited to go with higher waisted jeans–WHICH I LOVE. For $18, make sure you snag this one. Other Basics: BP Tee | I buy this every year at $18. Multiple colors. As a layering tank, size down. As a wear alone tee, stay normal size.

Two: Barefoot Dreams Hooded Cardigan (SELL OUT ALERT) | THIS THING IS A LEGIT DREAM! It feels like Lawson’s lovie and I can actually wear it in public…dreams do some true. I loved this longer + hoodie style the best and I can say with 100% confidence that it’s worth the splurge! Size down for sure though. Legit perfect reviews across the board! Three: Leith Ribbed Circle Cardi (SELL OUT ALERT) | Leith makes a great cardi every year, but this one is my favorite thus far. The ribbing is a nice detail and the fabric is so so soft.

Four: BP Tunic Cardigan (SELL OUT ALERT) | They make this one every single year and every single year it sells out. It’s a great tunic length to wear with leggings and is an all around basic the $30 price cannot be beat. Size down (this is an XS). Five: Cashemere Vest + Poncho | This is more of a fashion pick. I love tunic vests to layer with in the Fall and I splurged on this cashmere one (even though its a steal for cashmere!) and I think that it’s a super chic layering piece to add to your closet.
