Nordstrom Anniversary Sale First-Glance Favorites 2021

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 First GlanceThe Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka NSale) is HERE, and today I’m sharing my first-glance favorites in several different categories! If you can’t shop yet, no worries. You can add items to your Nordstrom Wish List right now to save them and easily reference them when you can shop the sale. This makes it a lot easier to keep track of all the items you’re interested in!

Last week I wrote about Why I Shop the NSale plus announced that I’m giving away FOUR $50 gift cards!

In a nutshell, the NSale is where I get most of my closet staples. My favorite comfy stretchy jeans, best crazy comfy stretchy work pants, stretchy blazers, beautiful suede and leather moto jackets, and comfy booties, among many other things. These are items I’ve talked about for YEARS, ones you guys ask me about all the time, and things I think are worth full price but are even better on sale!

The staples are what I share the most because I want you to focus on building a great wardrobe, and it starts with staples. Plus, I know those items are tried and true because I’ve had them for years at this point, so those are what I recommend prioritizing since you can now get them on sale!

That said, I personally also like to get some new items to keep things fun and fresh, as I’m sure many of you do as well. In today’s post, I have a mix of both the staples and other intriguing finds that I’m looking forward to checking out. If you’re new around here, I will be buying and trying a LOT more than I normally would from this sale simply because I’m not just shopping for myself—I’m also shopping simply to try things on behalf of you all. I don’t need all these clothes, haha!

Find my Tried & True items along with other things that have caught my eye in the widgets below. I wrote comments under them, so check there for sizing and other info on comfort and fit.

Also, PMT team members Cecilia and Katie like to shop this sale, so I’ve included widgets of what they’re eyeing! They both shop trendier items than I do, so have fun going through their picks!

I’ll be hitting the store today to try some of the items firsthand and post a first round of reviews hopefully on Friday. Remember, I’ll update the PMT Ultimate NSale Shopping Guide as the sale goes on and as I try more things. It’s where you can keep track of all my recs and reviews throughout the sale. (MUCH better than sifting through several blog posts about it!)

SIZING INFO: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

Sign Up for NSale Highlights via Email

(and enter the giveaway for $50 x 4)

Want to make sure you catch every blog post and highlights of the sale? Sign up for the PMT email list!

There are 2 different levels of how often you’ll get updated:

  • New Blog Posts – Get emailed whenever there’s a new blog post full of NSale reviews. I publish NSale blog posts 1-2x/wk during the sale.
  • *Special* Extra NSale Highlights Email List – Get special, additional highlights from the NSale so you don’t miss anything. I only blog 1-2x/wk during the sale, but often times items sell out before I publish the next blog post. This year, you can sign up to get additional NSale highlights between blog posts. That way, if I find something awesome, you’ll know about it soon instead of way later when it might already be sold out.

Sign up for either/both of those email lists HERE.

Also, I’m giving away $50 gift cards to FOUR lucky email subscribers. All you have to do to enter is be subscribed to my email list.

Four people will be chosen at random from the subscriber list. One winner will be announced through out the sale on each day via email: July 16th, July 22nd, July 28th, and July 30th. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll need to respond to the email within 2 days so that we know your email is good and active (and we’re not just sending a gift card to go to waste somewhere).
