I can’t believe it’s August 1! This year is truly flying by and I feel like before I know it, it’ll be time for the holidays! There are six days left for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so if you didn’t get a chance to snag some of the new items for fall and winter, now is the time! It may feel like a lot of great items are sold out, but that’s not true. I think there are still many great pieces, especially basics including jeans, dresses and more still in stock! Not to mention, as people return items, they will pop back in stock. Therefore, if you want something, bookmark that page and check back before the sale ends! You might be able snatch it up! Remember, thanks to Nordstrom’s free shipping and returns, you can always bring or send something back if you don’t like it.  Now, let’s get to the picks!

Can’t-Miss Items Still in Stock!

Coatigan – Need I say more? Half coat, half cardigan. Size down.
Dress with Pockets – Perfect for work, comes in four colors and so flattering.
Jumpsuit – Comes in three colors and petite sizing fits like a glove without alterations!
Skinny Jeans – Super soft and comfortable. I’m surprised these are in stock in all sizes!
Sweater w/ Detachable Sleeves – Wear now as a tank, later as a sweater. Comes in 5 colors.


Ruffle Sleeve Dress with Pockets (0, comes in black, blush, plum and teal),
Gold Filigree Earrings, Suede Heels, Prada Tote [/outfit_details

A dress that fits like a glove, has ruffle sleeves and pockets? Let’s just say I’m instantly sold. This is one of those dresses you can wear to anything. Wear it to work, wear it on a date, wear it to a wedding. It comes in four colors and I’m wearing size 0. Somehow this dress is still in stock in almost all colors. Don’t miss out on this dress that’s less than $100! Definitely a great price only available during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!


Red Wrap Dress (XS, also in black), Gold Filigree Earrings (also in silver & rose gold)
Christian Louboutin Heels (Similar for $65 fully stocked)

I cannot believe this dress is still in stock in both colors! For less than $40, this dress is a steal for the price. It’s not the most incredible quality as the fabric is polyester. However, it’s such a great dress on. I recommend adding a snap button the v-neck so you can button it up higher for work or if you want to be more conservative. You can always leave it open (as pictured above) for date night or when you’re going out.

This sweater is currently in stock in a few sizes! Definitely one of the most popular items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this color block sweater is easy to wear now and again in the fall and winter. For cooler summer nights, throw it over your swimsuit and wear with shorts for an easy look. Once temperatures drop, style it like I am above. There are some great camel coats still in stock, including the one above, this coatigan or this wool-blend coat.


Jumpsuit (0 Petite, also in black and blue), Gold Filigree Earrings (also in silver & rose gold)
Christian Louboutin Heels (Similar for $65 fully stocked)

I cannot believe I am so lucky with jumpsuits during the Nordstrom sale. That’s two years in a row, I find a knockout jumpsuit fitting perfectly with no alterations needed! As a petite gal who is 5’3 this is like finding a unicorn! I honestly cannot say enough good things about the fit and feel of this jumpsuit. Except to say it is a must-purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I love the red, but black would be so versatile for work, cocktail parties and weddings.


Knot-Front Stretch Dress (XS, comes in four colors & petite sizing)
Shimmer Drop Earrings c/o, Blush Loafers c/o, Apple Watch Band

A great option for work that’ll go beyond the office. This knot-front dress is super stretchy and very comfortable to wear. I love how it comes in black, red, blue and my personal favorite: a bright green. in fact, this green is the same color as the green screen at work, ha! Good thing I’m not a meteorologist because I tried this out and I completely disappeared! I’m wearing size x-small and it fits very well. This dress doesn’t have zippers and is designed to slip right over your head. Plus, for less than $50, this dress is a steal!


Joggers (XS, a few sizes left), Nike Free Sneakers (5.5, also in gray),
Blue Waterproof Jacket (XS), White Crop Top (XS)

I cannot say enough good things about these joggers, honestly. They are simply just so incredibly flattering, slimming and comfortable. You need these joggers in your life. Plus, random strangers will come up to you at all times to compliment you on them and ask where they’re from. I absolutely love the fabric because they feel nicer than your typical joggers and are very lightweight. I love these for working out because I do BBG in them or just athleisure and running errands. You won’t regret this purchase!

My Nike Free sneakers are fully in stock in black, gray and a fun blush and white mix. I really like these shoes for working out. They are great for doing BBG and training, while also being extremely comfortable to run errands or lounge around in. If you’re looking for a solid workout and athleisure sneaker, this is it. You’ll save money without sacrificing performance.

Finally, I’ve been on the market for a good lightweight jacket that’ll keep me dry in the rain. This cobalt blue jacket fit the bill. I love how you can zip the hood away for a cleaner look. Plus, the pockets are roomy and this thing keeps me dry.
