I know, I know. You’ve seen this sale taking over Instagram and circling the internet, but, with good reason! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to stock up on the latest pieces for fall at discounted prices. If you’re a Nordstrom card holder you’re able to shop the sale before it opens up to the public on July 21st which is great because so many items on your wish list will completely sell out!
Okay, let’s get into the title of the blog post, “Nordy Under Forty”, what in the world does that mean? Well, I wanted to share with you my favorite, “need to have” pieces from this sale all under $40! Is it just me or does every company have incredible sales this time of year? I know my wallet is feeling the burn from it and yours probably is too.
First, we’ll start with a few basics. Basics are staple pieces that have to be in everyone’s closet because of the versatility each piece offers. Here are a few of the basics I snagged:
BP. Pocket Tee $18.90 VS $29.00 after the sale
Lush Raw Edge Side Slit Tee $15.90 VS $24.00 after the sale
Madewell Modern Linen Tee $38.90 VS $59.50 after the sale (Madewell tees are the absolute best!)
Lush Side Slit Tank $18.90 VS $29.90 after the sale
Socialite Cozy Thermal Top $24.90 VS $38.00 after the sale (skeptical at first but this is literally the softest top I own)
Next, I’m bringing you what I like to call the “I didn’t try too hard but still look put together” tops. These type of tops are my go-to when it comes to a lunch date, a casual meeting, or even to wear to work on some occasions.
Caslon Stripe Bell Sleeve Top $25.90 VS $39.00 after the sale (white and black stripes + a bell sleeve = automatic favorite)
Lush Cold Shoulder Top $29.90 VS $45.00 after the sale
BP. Lightweight Rib Cardigan $31.90 VS $49.00 after the sale
Leith Bell Sleeve Sweater $38.90 VS $59.00 after the sale
Gibson Tie Front Sweater $39.90 VS $59.00 after the sale (love the tie front detail!)
Okay, I can’t let this post go live without including some of the best deals in the athletic wear category too! I’m all about buying workout clothing at a discount but still having the option to wear name brands and look cute while I’m at the gym or in the spin class sweating it out – who’s with me?! These are my top picks for workout wear during the anniversary sale:
Nike Breathe Training Tank $33.90 VS $45.00 after the sale (love this tank for spin class!)
Zella Constellation Cropped Legging $38.90 VS $59.00 after the sale
Nike Sportswear Tank $26.90 VS $35.00 after the sale
Last but not least, I have to throw in these jeans. They’re not under $40 but that’s why I saved them for last. I absolutely love AG denim and these jeans are priced at such a huge discount it’s totally worth the splurge. These are the hands down the most flattering pair of denim I own. I typically don’t like to spend crazy (in my mind) amounts of money on jeans but these are totally worth it! I know you’ll love them just as much as I do.
AG Raw Hem Legging Jean $149.90 VS $225.00 after the sale
There you have it, my list of top picks under $40 from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Items are selling out quickly so my advice is to buy now or forever wish you had. What’s on your list of “must haves” from the sale?
