Our Picks from the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Nordstorm Anniversary Sale Best 2022 Picks

It’s that time of year again – the yearly Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This year I am really focused on quality items that you can get so much use out of. Timeless pieces that can be worn all the time and paired with different pieces to create so many looks. Like comfortable denim, dresses to wear to weddings (and beyond), skincare items and boots. It’s also a great time to stock up on gifts – whether it be housewarming gifts for friends you haven’t seen in a while or gifts for your wedding party or just because gifts, we’ve found some great options there as well!

If you are new to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the sale is unlike any other sale because, for a limited time, brand new Fall styles are marked down at major discounted prices. SO many amazing designer and brand name pieces are on sale for only a few weeks and at limited quantities! The prices then go back up for the rest of the season.

I know — I hear this all the time, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the #nsale. As always, we try to keep our guides easy to shop with just a few favorites from each category.
