Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Top Picks

Good morning, friends! Popping in for a rare Sunday blog post to share my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 Top Picks with you guys. I had a lot of requests from readers to go ahead and share my top picks, since Icon Cardholders can go ahead and start shopping tomorrow at 3am EST! If you’re not sure what Nordstrom Club Status you have, you can find out here – just log in and click My Account. The easiest way to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is to go ahead and add items to your Wish List. This makes it SUPER easy and convenient to add items to your cart quickly when it’s your time to shop!

As far as this year’s sale goes, I am very pleasantly surprised and pleased. It seems that they have taken shoppers’ feedback into consideration, with a lot more variety and not just the “same old, same old” items that are usually in the sale. I’m particularly impressed with the dresses, sweaters and shoes this year, and can’t wait to get my hands on them in person!

I’m heading to Nordstrom tomorrow to shop the sale in person, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be rushing home to photograph my “Mirror Try-On Haul” like usual! This year I am focusing on buying only THE BEST items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Quality over quantity. You can expect honest reviews, detailed sizing information and more… and that blog post will go up ASAP. 🙂

Just a shout-out about the baby items… we bought both the NUNA PIPA Lite LX Infant Car Seat & Base and the Uppababy Vista V2 Stroller with Bassinet during last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and both Chris and I agreed they were our best purchases! We have been really, really happy with both. The car seat is the lightest one on the market (so even I can lift it in and out of the car by myself), while the stroller is incredibly smooth and sturdy. Nordstrom even sells an adapter that also allows you to attach the car seat to the stroller base, which makes it incredibly convenient. I highly recommend it if you decide to get both the car seat and stroller!

I’d love to know which category or item is your favorite from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so far!
