Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 | Shopping Time

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is something that I quite literally mark on the calendar each year. I start adding items to my basket towards the end of Spring to cover all of my Summer picks.

You know, to make sure that I don’t forget anything…

I just feel like there are SO MANY things to shop for this time of year. Outfits for weddings and vacation and weekends away. Plus gifts for showers and hosts and events. And I also love this sale because it’s the perfect time to drag the boys in your life who refuse to shop down to Nordstrom to get it all out-of-the-way in a single trip. Hopefully you can get them through the sale before the tears start. {Yes, I’m talking about grown men.}

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’m a Nordies girl through and through. I have great memories of trips with my mom when I was a kid {She used to bribe me to go to the dentist with shopping trips} and I still remember the first time I saw the multi-floor elevator at the giant Nordstrom in San Francisco’s Westfield Mall.

These days the Anniversary and Half Annual Sales are basically holidays in my mind. My excited inner child comes out but still has grown up mostly grown up Caity’s debit card to play with. Read on for a few of my top picks for this year’s Anniversary Sale broken down by department.


One of my current favs for the office is Eliza J so I picked up a couple of work appropriate dresses this week. What I love about this brand is that the dresses are flattering but demure – They’re a decent length, well made, and I always get compliments when I wear one which never hurts. 🙂

I’m on a mission for cute, comfortable flat shoes right now so I headed straight to the shoe section. I’ve had great success with Sam Edelman so I swooped up these adorable Paige Fringed Ankle Booties.

The other two pairs in my ‘I’ll probably get these before the sale ends’ section are these cute animal print BP ‘Doubletime’ Pointy Toe Flats and these divine cranberry ‘Mallory’ Leather Loafers.


No Nordstrom trip would be complete without a Zella stop. I have tons of Lululemon in my closet. And Lorna Jane. And Nike. But Zella is my favorite workout brand – Their Live In Leggings are amazing and I love the length of their Racerback Tanks. I have a long torso and hate the idea of flashing skin mid-workout, these always keep me covered!

I was THRILLED to discover that one of my favorite skin care brands is available, and on sale, at Nordies. If you haven’t heard of Bay Area based eco-friendly Algenist you can read my rave reviews here. I’m currently obsessed with their super lightweight sunscreen {Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50} and loving my latest buy – Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum.

There are a few killer all-in-one sets on super sale and I think my favorites are the Thalgo ‘Source Marine’ Hydrating Duo and the M.A.C. ‘Look in a Box – Sophisticate’ Face Kit. The latter is the PERFECT travel set.


Whether you’re shopping for your signification other, outfitting your dad, or getting a gift for a brother or friend – There are some good picks to sort through.

I’m obsessed with Jack Black and actually use a few of these “mens” products myself. Check out their ‘Epic Moisture’ Clean Cream Body and ‘Beard Lube’ Conditioning Shave for the gents in your life who deserve a little pampering.

On the clothing and accessories side my favorite picks are these timeless Cole Haan ‘Colton’ Chukka Boots that will go with anything, these solid colored Michael Kors Fine Stripe Silk Ties, and this rock n’ roll Vince Camuto Leather Moto Jacket.


While the kids section didn’t used to be on my radar – Now I always take a look because I have a niece and a nephew to spoil. And another nephew due in September!

And seriously, this sale has everything! From ridiculously adorable Organic Cotton Two-Piece Fitted Pajamas for toddlers and super sweet colorful bedding to this squeal-worthy Little Giraffe Luxe Hooded Towel and The Honest Company Baby Arrival Gift Set.

MCLV Style: Tiger Tiger Burning Bright

Okay fine, this top is actually adorned with leopard heads not tigers, but once I got that William Blake poem in my head I was determined to use the line as a post title. My deepest apologies for the  fuzzy animal inaccuracy. 🙂
