Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Public Access Picks Under $50 + Under $200

The Early Access portion of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is over, and now everyone can shop with any payment option! If you don't have a Nordstrom card and have been waiting, get shopping. ;) This is the time that things start to sell even quicker because there's a ton more people shopping so don't wait if you've been eyeing something! I thought it'd be fun to put together the top picks both under $50 and under $200 so if you don't know exactly what you want to buy or aren't sure what's worth the price, these picks will give you some guidance to shop!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

1. Silk Pillowcase: this is a game changer for your skin, you really don't realize how important your pillowcase is! It's a dream to sleep on too!

2. Nike Pullover: I love this pullover - I got it in the pink shade and it's the prettiest color! It has thumb holes (bless) and fits TTS.

3. Insulated Tumbler: these tumblers are the best! Especially during these hot summer months and this pretty blush and rose gold shade is a must for the price.

4. NARS Lip Gloss Set: if you're looking for something that's a great value, this is it! So many shades perfect for year round wear.

5. Velvet Block Heel Pumps: I LOVE these pretty block heels. They're just under $50 and the velvet is the most beautiful shade!

6. Silver Stone Hoop Earrings: when I was in high school I wore hoop earrings allll the time. I was obsessed with them. And now they're back in style and I freakin' love it. These are a bit dressier since they have the stones both inside and out but they're absolutely stunning, $30, and look like the real thing. A total must buy!

7. 'Goal Digger' Sweatshirt: all my fellow girl bosses need this cozy pullover, ASAP.

8. Travel Jewelry Case: I've been using this travel jewelry case for a few years now and I always get so excited when it's included in the sale because it's such a great gift to give!

9. Gold Initial Necklace: such a cute and dainty necklace - another great gift and another must buy under $50!

10. No-Wire Bra: this is one of my favorite bras ever and it's on sale! I love that it has no underwire because it's so comfortable yet still soo supportive.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

1. Barefoot Dreams Cardigan: THE SOFTEST thing you will ever put on your body. Barefoot Dreams always has one or two cozy cardigans included in the sale but this year is the best one I've gotten ever. I sound very dramatic but it is SO soft. I couldn't pick a color in the store but ultimately went with this one shown because my sister told me it went best with my hair color LOL. The periwinkle/blue shade was a close second!

2. Blue Suede Bow Slides: in love with these shoes is an understatement. They are so damn cute and to my surprise, comfortable! The site says they run small but I found them to fit TTS - I'm wearing my normal size here and they felt great. They come in four colors - including a leopard print pair - and they're one of the best shoe options from the sale IMO.

3. AG Boyfriend Jeans: these are a little pricier, but for a great pair of denim it's worth the price. I live in boyfriend jeans and this is one of the best fitting, well-made pairs of jeans I've ever bought. They're worth every penny and they do run a bit big - size down a full size in these, or order your normal size and one size down (free shipping, free returns!) to get the best fit!

4. Square Tortoise Sunnies: you have too many sunglasses, said no one ever! For $56 these are worth the buy!

5. Pink Suede Flat: every Anniversary Sale always has a fun colored flat. These are this years and they're too cute! They come in other colors too and the side detailing makes them just a little bit more fun than your average flat under $100.

6. Cognac Leather Bucket Bag: in a time of major handbag trends, get yourself a cute bucket bag. ;) This is genuine leather for a great price and also comes in black!

7. Nike Sneakers: can't believe these are still in stock! My favorite colored pair of Nike's I've ever purchased - they're beautiful and extremely comfortable! They fit pretty TTS but you could size a half size down (I did).

8. Leather Banded Tory Burch Watch: such a fun spin on your normal watch - this would be a great gift too!

9. Faux Leather Hooded Jacket: the hood on this faux leather jacket makes this more sporty and great for daily wear! LOVE it!

10. Knitted Cardigan: a classic cardigan that you'll have for years! Fits true to size but has a bit of an oversized fit so you could size down!
