The Best Summer Buys from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


With all of the excitement over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happening and all of the fun, new seasonal looks that are being styled, I thought it'd be fun to highlight some of the best summer finds that are a part of the sale! I love seeing all of the trends and getting great deals on cooler weather outfits and accessories but the same goes for things we can use right now - all summer long and even throughout the year too. Summer is my absolute favorite and I'm going to celebrate it as much and for as long as possible. ;) Here's all of the best summery buys included in the sale:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16

1. Cozy & Soft Shorts: these super cute and comfy shorts are great for sleep, workouts or just lounging around in in the summer. They come in four colors and they're $22! They're great to bring on a beach trip (or any other trip!) to lounge around in during some down-time.

2. Gold Disk Earrings: if you're looking for a cute pair of earrings that are lightweight and affordable - here you go! These are $15 and remind me of a sand dollar, so summery and fun!


3. White Tassel Espadrilles: I was so excited to see these included in the sale! I tried them on in-store last week and they fit TTS. They come in peach as well and are just under $50.

4. Square Tortoise Sunnies: the square sunglasses trend is my favorite of all trendy sunglass shapes right now. These are only $56 and aren't too big, but are the perfect size for most face shapes. You'll wear these a ton!

5. COOLA Sunscreen Spray Set: I'm very picky about sunscreen because I want something I know I can count on when it comes to SPF. I started trying out the COOLA sprays this summer and I love them! I was so excited to see them a part of this sale - if you haven't tried them, this value pack is worth every penny!

6. Origins Skincare Set: out of all the great beauty buys during this year's sale, I think this has to be the best one! It has a cleanser, moisturizer, mask and more and it's only $35! The tube sizes are perfect to travel with and a value pack is a great way to try out some new skincare finds before committing to a bigger, more expensive sized bottle(s).

7. White Peplum Tee: such a great basic - wear it with shorts, jeans or over a swimsuit! It has a great fit and this is something you'll wear all the time and can layer later on in the year too.

8. Tory Burch Crossbody: I can't believe this is still in stock! It's described as a "wallet crossbody" but in person it's really a perfect sized crossbody bag. My favorite is the navy but the cognac is such a classic! It's such a great price and definitely worth buying. It's easy to pack and perfect to travel with!


9. Cognac Tory Burch Sandals: so different than most sandals and for Tory Burch shoes, surprisingly comfortable! Love the gold detailing and that they're a bit of a dressed up flip flop/sandal.

10. Pink Jumpsuit: for $38, you can't pass up this jumpsuit! It's elegant and can be dressed up for dinner or worn a bit more casually - the wide leg is so different and fun!

11. Kendra Scott Hoop Earrings: such a fun take on regular hoops - and it isn't every day that new Kendra pieces are on sale, take advantage of these!

12. Bumble and Bumble Summer Hair Set: summer hair is not the easiest to manage, especially if you have curls and are in the heat! Hah! This Bumble and Bumble set are all travel sized styling tools (heat free - perfect for the summer) that you can take with you on a trip or weekend getaway.

13. St. Tropez Self-Tan Mousse: out of all of the St. Tropez products, this mousse is one of my favorites and everyone else's, too! It gives you a quick, easy and flawless tan that leaves you glowing without being too dark. So exciting to see this on sale!

14. 'Good Vibes' Tee: how could you not have good vibes in this comfy, simple tee? Pair it with denim shorts on a hot day or tucked into a skirt for a dinner or night out. For $21, you can't pass it up!

15. White Nike Sneakers: these are another sale find that are shockingly still in stock! They're the cutest white sneakers and are beyond comfortable. You will seriously live in these.

16. Colorful Drop Earrings: a fun, bright accessory that'll make any outfit pop this season!

Here's some more cute summer buys included in the Nordstrom Sale:
