Public Access to The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially begins today at 9:30AM PST (12:30pm EST)! This is the first chance to shop for so many of you, so I wanted to round up some of my favorite pieces from the sale, along with my favorite purchases. 

Sale Details

Public Access is Friday, July 19th through the end of the sale, Sunday, August 4th. That means prices go UP August 5th. 

You can see more about the sale and how I shop it in THIS POST

I kept my purchases to a minimum this year and really focused on keeping things classic or filling a void in my wardrobe. That’s really how I prefer to shop it but of course this varies from person to person, so I’m including items across multiple categories. You can also see my Classic #NSALE Buys Post for more staples.

A few non-clothing favorites I already love/use:

My favorite Dior Lip Glow is part of the beauty exclusives. This is the only thing I wear on my lips (besides no-color lip balm) and it leaves the prettiest natural pink shade. I have 001 Pink Glow (which is included in the gift set) and it’s supposed to adjust to your own body chemistry. It’s soft, hydrating and buildable.

My hair dryer is also part of the sale. I use this T3 Cura Hair Dryer which is supposed to help fight frizz and I think it really does. It’s not overly noisy and is also just really pretty and sleek, which is a silly thing to love but—anything to make drying your hair a little more exciting. 🤣

If you follow me on Instagram (or have already read my previous #nsale purchases blog post), you know my favorite item from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is this Topshop Satin Blouse. It’s a great effortless basic that’s somehow not-so-basic. And I love that. It’s sleek, chic and dreamy and I love how many styling options it has, from cutoff shorts to jeans to trousers.

Topshop sizing can be tricky but I went with the US 2 (normally a US 0/xs in blouses or even 00/xxs in brands like J.Crew) and it fits perfectly. I think their size guide is accurate. This one’s a steal at $45.90!

I always love a lace cami + cardigan combo with jeans or even shorts and sandals for summer. This BP. lace cami has been going in and out of stock in several of the colors but it’s a great relaxed fit in your normal size. (I’m wearing an xs). This Leith Longline Duster Cardigan in Beige Oatmeal is so soft and I love the slits on the sides, which makes it fall/drape so beautifully—and in a flattering way! I’m also wearing an xs in this one and it also comes in other neutrals like grey, which is a great color for a duster cardigan—so effortless. I read some reviews on the site saying it’s itchy but I’m fairly sensitive to texture and don’t find it itchy or scratchy at all. For length reference, I’m 5’6’.

I also picked  up this Leith wrap sweater and it’s a bit more fitted than I thought but a really great effortless style to mix up your basic knits and sweaters. 👏🏼I’m wearing a small here (normally an xs or small) but almost could even do a medium for more slouch. It comes in a few colors (grey, black, blush and olive) and is a great price at $31.90!

One item that was a flop for me were these BLANKNYC Straight Leg Crop Denim. From the site, I thought they’d be a nice, mid-blue to light wash but they’re much darker in person. The length hit at an unflattering spot on my leg and I just wasn’t a huge fan of the not-quite-skinny-not-quite-straight fit. If you’re more on the petite side (under 5’4”) the length might be better!

I DO like these Paige skinny jeans though. They also look much lighter on the site but they’re still a nice wash and the fit is great. High rise and super skinny down to the ankle. They’re also very soft and run true to size!

I bought both of these flats and hands-down my favorite are the nude pair by Cole Haan. I just love how they look on the foot (very flattering) and they go with everything. Cole Haan is one of my favorite brands for comfort and these would be great if you’re a commuter, teacher, etc. The snakeskin print flats are by Franco Sarto and are also comfy and a fun style to add a little interest. I found both run a little large. I’m normally between an 8 and 8.5 and went with an 8 in both. I also really love the look of these Vince loafers in the nude or grey!

12 Casual Chic Wardrobe Staples From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

12 Wardrobe Staples From The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale-1.jpg

It’s honestly so easy to get caught up in the shopping craze of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Rather than purchasing the thing everyone has, I prefer to stick to closet staples I’ll reach for and wear across multiple seasons, again and again. Below I’m sharing some of the items I view as wardrobe essentials that will truly work well in any (casual chic) closet. I’ve personally already purchased several of these and will be sharing more about fit and styling options in the coming days.

1. Felt Hat One of the easiest accessories to make your fall look feel more “done.” I love this blush tone for something feminine.

2. Long Sleeve Knit TopVersatile for every season, a classic white knit will pair with everything in your closet. Wear with denim shorts for summertime or layer up with cardigans and coats into fall and winter. I love the subtle ribbed detail on this one and the black and grey are also classic options for your closet.

3. Plaid Blazer This style adds structure and also elevates your basics. I purchased my first plaid blazer in the fall of last year and have worn it with everything from mini skirts and sneakers to the pumpkin patch, black denim and printed flats and something a bit more summer-ready (jeans, white tee and strappy heels) for date night. The menswear or boyfriend style is relaxed yet polished and I personally always prefer one with a bit of stretch!

4. Lace CamisoleWhether dressed up with a blazer or worn casually with a cardigan, lace camisoles in black and white work well for work, day and date night. Pair with the cardigan for something casual or the plaid blazer to dress it up.

5. Neutral Duster CardiganYou will wear a duster cardigan any time of year. From morning coffee to walks with the dogs, in the office and cuddled up on the couch, I highly recommend having one in both light grey and a neutral tone like oatmeal. They go with everything and feel instantly effortless with denim and a white, grey, black, printed (basically any) tee.

6. Skinny Jeans in Light Wash The perfect base for any casual-chic outfit. I love a high rise that makes tucking shirts a bit easier. Pair these with a lace cami in any color and add the plaid blazer for girls night or throw on the cardigan for day-to-day errands.

7. Nude Flats Another style to slip on with any outfit to feel instantly more put together. A pointed toe helps elongate the leg line and the mock-slingback heel on this pair has a similar, sleek effect.

8. Satin Button-Up BlouseThis pajama top style mixes up your everyday blouses just enough yet still feels classic and effortless. Pair with denim in any style and wash or even trousers for the office.

9. Straight Leg DenimThere’s something so effortless about a straight leg in a lighter wash, especially in the summer months. Call them “Mom Jeans” if you want but you’ll love this style with white sneakers, flats or booties.

10. Trench CoatElevate your rainy day outfit with this classic piece. I love how this particular one has a removable hood because they don’t always and this truly makes it practical for rainy days.

11. Printed D’orsay FlatsFor when your neutral outfit needs just the right amount of interest, a pair of printed flats does the job in a way that feels classic and not overdone. This is another style (the d’orsay) that looks very flattering on the foot. I can’t wait to try these with both black and blue denim into fall for the perfect “pop" to any basic look.

12. Black Skinny JeansBlack denim is an easy basic that also adds a subtle edge to any outfit. I love pairing mine with a striped tee and denim jacket or try it with the white lace cami and cardigan for a comfy-cool outfit.

2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Favorites

2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Favorites | www.girlmeetsgold.com

Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially begins Friday at 12:30pm EST and you’re either feeling a little bit anxious, excited, overwhelmed or maybe even uninterested entirely—and that’s ok! Whatever the case, I’m here to hopefully be a resource for all things classic from the #nsale. If you haven’t already, you can see how I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in THIS POST and also check out my initial “sneak peek” post featuring Classic Buys From The #Nsale.

It’s true things definitely sell out quickly (especially cardigans from Topshop, Madewell, BP., Barefoot Dreams; anything Free People or Nike, Adidas, etc) so one tip is to not sit on your cart for too long. I love how Nordstrom offers free shipping, so it makes it easy to grab multiple sizes and send back what doesn’t work. I also love checking out online and using the in-store pickup option, so you can more easily snag things and try them on without the hassle of rifling through racks.

Without further ado, I’m rounding up my favorites from multiple categories, so you can hopefully find a bit of inspiration! I’ll also share my purchases and try-ons in the next couple days and throughout the sale if it’s helpful! I highly, highly recommend knowing what your closet lacks most and starting there but here are some of my personal favorites.

As always, thank you for reading and happy shopping!

2018 #NSALE Favorites Still in Stock

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Layers & Purchases

From left to right:  BlankNYC ,  Trouvé ,  cupcakes and cashmere

Excuse my fitting room selfies and Snapchat snaps here, but I wanted to share some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, as well as my first purchases. I am loving the layers and I swear I love summer, but now I'm really ready for fall. Thankfully San Francisco is cold at night, so I can wear booties and layers every season which is why they're one of my favorite purchases. I'm always looking for faux leather layers to add to my collection and the #Nsale does not disappoint this year. 

I'm also a million percent obsessed with this BP Hooded Longline Cardigan. It's crazy soft and cozy and will be so great over leggings and tunics or for lounging at home. I got an XS. I probably would have gotten the XXS, but they didn't have it in store and I didn't want to wait to order it, because I have no patience. 

BlankNYC is my absolute favorite brand for faux leather. The fit is incredible and they're so reasonably priced. I didn't purchase this All or Nothing mixed material jacket YET, but I'm pretty sure I will. It also comes in olive. If I can get my hands on this Suede Moto Jacket though, it's definitely my top choice. 

The fit of these Hudson Krista jeans is insane. They're so comfy and I love the edginess and faded color. Fit true to size. 

I love the stripes on this BP shirt and how I can wear it now with shorts and layered into fall. Wearing an XXS.

Perfect way to lighten up your faux leather. I love the color on this Trouvé drape front jacket. I'm wearing an XS. 

Finally, I love love my new Steve Madden Sharini booties and AG jeans. I normally wear a 25 in denim, but I got the 24 in the jeans, because they fit tighter through the leg and ankle. I'm really picky about skinny jeans and prefer a super skinny fit. If you like a normal skinny fit, you can definitely go for your normal size. I love Steve Madden and the color and style of these ankle boots is really classic, but still unique thanks to the side slits. I usually wear an 8 or 8.5 and got the 8.5. 

What are you loving in the #Nsale this year?
