Best of the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Giveaway!

August 12, 2020

This week the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary sale opens up to cardholders with ‘influencer’ level status first and then all cardholders can shop on Thursday! Next week the sale will open up to the public (August 19) and everyone will be able to shop.

While some of our favorite bridal outfit picks from last week’s post have already sold out, there are still a ton of cute items available. I have a feeling they’ll be restocking a lot of these items before the sale officially opens up to the public on August 19. Soo if you see something you like that’s sold out, just keep your eye on it for restocks! In the past, I have even bought an item I wanted in whatever size was available and exchanged it when my correct size was restocked, so I still got the sale price! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Today we’re sharing some more of our favorite things, what we’re purchasing, gift ideas, and outfits. Plus we have a $100 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway that you don’t want to miss!

1. Favorite Loungewear

With Fall right around the corner, you’ll want to stock up on some cozy outfits. I love this leopard sweater and these tie-dye joggers. I have this oversize t-shirt in tons of different colors and plan to grab a few more while they’re on sale – they’re the perfect length for leggings!

2. Favorite Accessories

These accessories will be a staple in your wardrobe and can pretty much go with everything. Grab the monogram necklace in the letter of your new last name or throw on these sunglasses during your bachelorette party!

3. Best of Beauty

The T3 curling iron is an investment piece that will last forever. There’s something about it that really makes your curls hold and it heats up soo fast! I love the Living Proof dry shampoo and you can’t go wrong with the self-tanner by St. Tropez.

4. Best of Makeup

My all-time favorite bridal makeup tip is to use this setting spray as the finishing touch. It locks your makeup in place and you can dance the night away without worrying about your face melting. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The Riki mirror is also perfect for those bridal suites that lack natural light or while traveling for your honeymoon.

I never understood the hype around the Barefoot Dreams blanket until I finally caved and got one… it is totally worth it and honestly the coziest blanket I’ve ever owned.
