Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Best of Beauty, Home, & Gifts + DRD Sneak Peek!

Happy Wednesday, friends! I had the best day at Nordstrom with Mama Sugarplum yesterday! We swooned, we shopped, we lunched… it was so fun to be together doing what we love most. We found SO MANY amazing finds in this year’s Anniversary Sale, and we’re excited to share our Dressing Room Diaries tomorrow!

The NSale opens to Ambassador Members today (non-cardholders can shop starting July 17), but you can save items to a Nordstrom Wish List now for fast and easy shopping later. Things go fast once the NSale opens to all, so you’ll want to be ready!

I’m thrilled you loved my top picks for Women yesterday, including boots, sneakers, denim, sweaters, dresses, and more! Be sure to check them out HERE, along with my Top Essentials of the Sale HERE.

Today I’m rounding up my favorite picks for Beauty, Home, and Gifts, but first… a few peeks at the styles I loved most from our shopping day.

P.S…Today also happens to be the final day of Amazon’s epic Prime Days, you can find all my picks HERE.

DRD Sneak Peek //

Denim and Shoes were the winners for me (in the fashion category), and I hit the jackpot with several styles. These two were my faves from what my store had in stock, and will be on repeat this season. (I also ordered these and these from my favorite luxe denim brand, and will report back!) Of course we grabbed new basic tees to replace our tired ones from last year… how can you pass up $12?!

Fit Tip: The jeans are true to size, I’m wearing a 26 in the Pistola and 2 in the Kut from the Kloth. I wear a small tee.

We loved several shoes, but if I had to narrow it down, these are my top four styles. The white sneakers go with absolutely everything from denim to dresses, and the mules are comfy and chic! Mama SP grabbed these slippers, and I’m now the excited new owner of these styles (plus these boots…oops!).

Fit Tip: I found them all true to size.

Loafer Mules | Cap Toe Ballet Flat | White Leather Sneakers | Pointed Toe Bootie


Along with some closet staples (like these undies and this tee), we both took advantage of the incredible 40% off prices, and splurged on this Barefoot Dreams set. It feels like the softest, most comforting hug! I also grabbed these cozy socks, and this cozy $20 throw.

Fit Tip: Set is true to size, we’re both in XS. (The material will give and stretch)

Barefoot Dreams Set | Slippers | Heart Necklace


Mama SP always heads straight to the pajamas for this set! They’re her absolute favorite (super lightweight and soft), and I couldn’t resist the pink!

Fit Tip: The long sets are true to size, we’re both in an XS, but the shorts run small, so I’d size up.

Long-Sleeve Pajama Pant Set | Short Sleeve Pajama Shorts Set


I’m absolutely obsessed with the Farm Rio prints and styles, but usually shy away given the price point. What better time to splurge on a statement style than when it’s 40% off?! (How’s that for justification?!) I positively swooned over this top and dress, and can not wait to wear them all summer and early fall!

Fit Tip: I’m in a small top and dress, but ordered an XS

on left: Flutter Sleeve Cotton Top | White Jeans | Sandals
on right: Cotton Belted Mini Dress | Pink Platform Sandals


And finally, we couldn’t resist cozy cashmere for under $80… it’s Fall perfection! Super soft and in classic crewneck style, it’s impossible to choose a favorite color!

Fit Tip: It’s true to size, we’re both in an XS. Although, I’d like a size up, too, for a more relaxed fit.

    Great post! I love the Farm Rio dress! Thank you for providing the Amazon links as well. ((I don’t think the Donna Karen Deodorant is natural though (at least the set that was linked isn’t). The first ingredient is aluminum.))
