Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Best of Men, Teens, & Kids

Hey friends… happy Thursday! I’m thrilled you loved yesterday’s Dressing Room Diaries with Mama Sugarplum! I loved being back in the store with her, wandering the departments together. We found so many darling things, so stay tuned tomorrow for our second installment! (The NSale opens to all cardholders tomorrow!)

It’s our favorite sale of the year, so we cover it well! I love sorting through the 1000s of incredible deals, and sharing the very best with you! I strive to be a resource for you, and hope my coverage has been helpful. I’ve rounded up my Top Picks for everything from Beauty to Shoes, but y’all have been asking for more… so here’s the the best of the rest!

I actually recruited Mr. Sugarplum and the teens to help, so these are all straight from the source! I even asked my assistant, Caroline, who’s a new mom, to share her top picks for babies and toddlers.

Top Picks Men //

Mr. SP lives in hoodies pretty much year-round, and this one is lightweight and perfect for workouts or streetwear! The wrinkle-free shirts are a great closet staple, too! I also introduced him to the world of joggers last year, and he wears these non-stop.

one.  Striped Tie  // two.  Fitted Button Down
three.  Leather Belt  // four.  Oxford Dress Shoes
five.  Hoodie  // six.  Collared Shirt
seven.  Sunglasses  // eight.  Security Wallet
nine.  Toiletries Bag  // ten.  Dress Socks
eleven.  Performance Boxer Briefs  // twelve.  Joggers

Top Picks Teen Girls //

Little Miss always heads straight to the shoe department, and fortunately we now wear the same shoe size. It’s still all about the street sneaker, and she adores these, plus her go-to athletic slides for game day. Jackets and activewear like these shorts and leggings are always a great buy during the NSale, and she also added this cozy throw to her cart.

She may be close to my size, but we always check the girls department first for similar styles… many go up to size 18, and cost a fraction of the price!

one.  Reversible Jacket  // two.  Zip-Up Hoodie
three.  Barefoot Dreams Blanket  // four.  Athletic Shorts
five.  Sports Bra  // six.  Kiehl’s Cleanser Set
seven.  Lounge Leggings  // eight.  Sweatpants
nine.  High Waist Leggings  // ten.  Hoodie Pullover
eleven.  No-Show Socks  // twelve.  Nike Sneakers


Top Picks Teen Guys //

Mr. College Guy goes for the sporty styles, and has an affinity for up-and-coming designers. He loves these polos for when he needs to be in more than a t-shirt, this hoodie is pricey, but he assures me is uber-cool. Also a great time to stock up on underwear and socks, because college & laundry don’t always mix! And these sneakers are his go-to for working out.

He got this throw for Christmas last year, and I think it’s one of his favorite possessions!

one.  Puffer Jacket  // two.  Graphic Tee
three.  Collared Shirt  // four.  Hoodie Pullover
five.  Athletic Shorts  // six.  Insulated Water Bottle
seven.  Boxers // eight.  Hoodie Pullover
nine.  No-Show Socks  // ten.  Throw Blanket
eleven.  Slides  // twelve.  Ultraboost Sneakers

Top Picks Babies & Toddlers //

Some of these items are pricey, so if you’re in the market and can score them in the #NSale, it’s such a good deal! This blanket is the perfect gift for a new baby, and I’m dying at how cute these tiny rain boots are!

one.  Car Seat  // two.  Diaper Backpack
three.  Girls Pajama Set  // four.  Fleece Jacket
five.  Moccasins  // six.  Hunter First Rain Boots
seven.  High Chair  // eight.  Luxe Blanket
nine.  Feeding Set  // ten. Stroller/Bassinet Combo

      Ugh! Well bummer, Carol, I’m sorry it’s not what you’d hoped it would be! Just remember that it’s a silly sale, so it’s ok to skip out on it! xo, C
