Favorite Brands at Nordstrom – Anniversary Sale Prep

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is going to be here before we know it! While we don’t yet know what will be included in the sale, you can bet your buns that I’ve added a few things to my wish list. So as to not go completely crazy on my wallet, I’ve compiled a list of of my Favorite brands at Nordstrom to help narrow down the list.

Classic Tees – MADEWELL

Madewell makes some of the best basic tee shirts I have ever worn. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they hold their shape even after multiple washes. Although they may seem like an investment, they are certainly worth it. They also carry them at Nordstrom Rack if you really want to save some pennies (more on that in a later post).

Skincare – ELEMIS

I’ve written entire blog posts about how much I love Elemis Skincare, but just incase you need a little refresher, let’s dive right in. It’s pricy, but worth it, if you pick products that are right for your skin. The one product I recommend is the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30. If you get obsessed (join the club) and want to try the cream without the SPF, they have that too!


A snappy little sandal is a must for summer and the people at Treasure & Bond know how make it happen. The footwear looks very high end, but at a price everyone can appreciate. They also carry the same classic styles in multiple colors. Who cares about that? I do! Once I find something I love, I stick to it and get it in every color.


After a year of everyone trying to make their house a home, I have really narrowed down what we bring into our space. Less kitschy cheap candles and pillows, more high quality fragrances and comfy blankets. I’ve had this particular Diptyque room spray in every apartment since moving to Texas and it feels like a signature fragrance for our home. I love that it also comes in a candle so the scents in our home don’t feel like they’re competing against one another.

Luggage – BÉIS

I can’t remember where my Béis obsession started, but I have loved pretty much everything that has come from their brand. The creator, Shay Mitchell, has thought of everything you’d need to make your travel experience seamless and I so appreciate that! This duffle bag has trolly pass and feet on the bottom of the bag. She also carries a variety of toiletry bags and diaper bags that help you feel more organized than you probably are. 🙂

Jackets – BLANKNYC

BLANKNYC has some of the best tailored jacket on the market. While they can be quite pricy, they make great wardrobe staples. Another great reason to snag them from Nordstrom is that they always seem to be on sale! If you fall in love with one, keep an eye out. Chances are that it’ll go on sale within the next 3 months.

Foundation – DIOR

Another personal favorite for almost two years, this foundation does miracles for your face. I go into more detail in this post, but let’s just say I wouldn’t do a big photoshoot without it. I wore it at my wedding and wear it any time I know I need makeup that will last and give me a flawless airbrush finish. It’s also the foundation my sister wore for her wedding! She saw me use it for months and was converted. 🙂 I wear shade 3 Warm (301) which they recommend for “light medium skin, warm yellow undertones”. It’s a bit darker than my natural shade, but I prefer to look tan and it blends really well.

Pro Tip: It may seem counterintuitive to go onto another site, but you can jump to Sephora.com and click “Find Your Shade” under the swatches of this foundation. From there you can walk through the steps of finding your perfect shade by matching it to a foundation shade that you already wear in a different brand. It’s pretty seamless!

Denim – LEVI’S

I can’t talk enough about Levi’s wedgie fit jeans! I styled them 8 different ways in this post so be sure to give it a look. You can get Levi’s denim from several retailers, and you could even go directly to Levis.com. So why do I love getting them from Nordstrom specifically? Well, for starters, they price match their jeans so you know you’re getting the best deal! If they’re marked down on Levis.com, they’re also marked down on Nordstrom.com as well. Another great reason is their customer service. I don’t have a Levi’s store near me and returning a pair of denim online was quite the kerfuffle.

Well, there you have it! 8 reasons why you should keep your eyes peeled for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’m not sure that all of my favorite brands will be featured but this gives us something to shoot for until the big reveal!
