I have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for YEARS. My mom and I used to plan a trip every Summer to the closest Nordstrom, specifically to shop the sale. However, our schedules did not coincide with the sale this year so I did all of my shopping online. Although some of my purchases have yet to arrive, I figured I would still share with y’all what I bought this year.
There are a few items that I buy every year – this Kiehl’s lotion is one of them. For as long as I can remember, this is the only body lotion that my Aunt’s have all used. So naturally I started using it too. Once you try it, you’ll understand the obsession. I have never come across a better lotion, and I likely never will. So of course, when Nordstrom puts the jumbo bottle on sale I always scoop one, or two, up!
This Donna Karan deodorant is another item that my family and I swear by! Most deodorants do not work for me unless they are prescription strength – but this stuff is by far the best deodorant I have ever used. And it smells AMAZING! Each year Nordstrom releases an exclusive three pack of this stuff for the Sale and it is always one of the first items to sell out – which is why I made sure to buy myself a pack on day one.
I was super excited when I noticed that this year Nordstrom added my favorite hand soap to the sale. I am still waiting for it to arrive, and as you can see my current bottle is running on empty, but I wanted to share with you all how nice the packing is! I know it is only hand soap, but I love having a beautiful bottle of great smelling hand soap in my bathrooms. It’s the little things. I have only ever used the Wild Rose scent, but Nordstrom was selling it as a two pack with the Wild Rose scent and a Cotton Flower scent that I am very excited to try!
If you don’t already know this about me, I am obsessed with Hanky Panky underwear. It is the only brand that I have owned for years now. Each year when Nordstrom adds them to the Sale I buy one of every color to add to my collection. I am a fan of the boy cut, but I believe that they add multiple styles to the Sale.
Please excuse my dusty mirror. As far as clothing goes, I did not do as much damage as I have in the past. Surprisingly, all I bought was two sweaters. The first one, pictured above, is by Autumn Cashmere, which is one of my favorite brands for sweaters. It is a navy cashmere sweater with black stripes and it is unbelievably soft! Not to mention, it has pockets! WIN!
The other sweater that I bought was this Vince cardigan. It has not arrived yet, but I am very excited to try it on! It also comes in black, but I just had to have this amazing grey/ivory color.
If you have never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before, I highly recommend that you start now! All of the stuff that I bought was majorly discounted, and trust me when I tell you that it is hard to find these items on sale any other time of the year!
