nordstrom anniversary sale 2020 // 9 preview items i’m excited about

Last Friday, Nordstrom published the online preview to the upcoming Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020!

Unlike the traditional catalog Nordstrom typically sends out, this virtual preview allows you to save anniversary sale items to a wishlist. (You’ll find the option to “save to wishlist” at the bottom of each product description.) Then, once you get access to the sale (which depends on your Nordstrom rewards tier), you’ll be able to check out with your wishlist easy peasy!

As a long-time Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopper (see last year’s posts here) I’m excited about this change. I think it will allow for more thoughtful planning and purchasing… and hopefully, stock will be reserved for each tier so items don’t sell out quite as quickly!

I will be shopping the nordstrom anniversary sale 2020 on August 7th and can’t wait to bring you along for the fun as I hunt for classic, timeless pieces and the frequent pop of fun. An Instagram Try-On session is always requested, and I’ll keep you posted on when it will go live!

In the meantime, click here to check out the nordstrom anniversary sale 2020 preview, and see a few favorites I’m eyeing below! Keep in mind, the preview doesn’t feature every sale item. Nordstrom is updating it with new sneak peeks daily!

2020 preview favorites




cashmere coat

I can already tell you which investment piece I am most excited for. This gorgeous camel cashmere coat is regularly $600, but will be $299 during the Nordstrom anniversary sale! An investment, to be sure, but one that will look (and feel) fabulous for years. I couldn’t be more in love with the elegant, chic draped silhouette and or the timeless color. Cashmere?! Yes, please!



ag ankle skinny jeans

Each year, I look for a perfect pair of jeans to take me through fall and winter. In fact, I still have a pair of rag & bone jeans from the Nordstrom anniversary sale two years ago that I’m obsessed with! The sale is a great opportunity to purchase a high-quality pair of designer denim at a great price. This pair of AG skinny jeans, originally $215 but under $150 during the sale, has my name on it!



$20 lipgloss trio

I rarely update my makeup arsenal, but seem to always find something affordable and fun to freshen up the mix with during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. This year, I’m eyeing this set of pretty pink-to-nude lip glosses. At $20, this set is a fun way to treat yourself and buy a few extras for the gift closet/stocking stuffers!


cap-toe kicks

Last year, I became obsessed with the Chanel-inspired cap-toe shoe trend. In fact, I wore this pair so much I’m planning on replacing them this year! Needless to say, I cannot wait to scoop up this casual, loafer style for under $100. The teeny chain detailing is giving me serious heart eyes!




my favorite bra

It’s back! It’s back! And I’m so excited! Last year, I posted about the best bra ever that I scooped up from the Nordstrom anniversary sale. (Read my review here.) I had countless messages from y’all saying you had then purchased it and agreed… it’s amazing! While you can purchase it year-round, grab a few during the sale for $20 off. Trust me, you’ll love it! This year, I also saw this spaghetti strap style is included. I’m planning on purchasing and will let you know my thoughts!


hexagonal rayban shades

Ray Bans on sale? Sign me up. This current style is fresh and unique, without being too flashy. I love the subtle angles and the classic black/gold combination. Can’t wait to snag these!



white patagonia jacket

While the last thing I want to think about is a jacket during the heat and humidity of July in Gainesville, I can’t help but be excited about this Patagonia jacket! It’s a new style, and I love it. The only problem is it also comes in pink! Which to choose?! If past years are any indication, this piece is going to sell out quickly.


silk scrunchies

I’ve been hearing rave reviews of these silk scrunchies… especially in regards to how great they are for sleeping with! Apparently, the silk keeps hair smooth and soft instead of warped and crinkled. I haven’t pulled the trigger because of the price, so I’m so excited to see this set included in the Nordstrom anniversary sale this year!




leopard tote

This. Bag. I splurged on this same style last year in a solid tan color with a navy and red strap. Swoon. I actually ended up gifting it to my mama, and have had serious envy ever since! Now that it’s being released in this fabulous leopard print with an ever-versatile white and black strap, I have a feeling history is going to repeat itself again. Except this time, I’m keeping it! :) (You can borrow it, mom!)

I already have quite the wishlist created, and can’t wait to share more inspiration as the date approaches. In the meantime, let me know what you’re shopping for and what would be most fun/helpful for you to see! Your feedback is always appreciated.

And before signing off, I wanted to repeat a sentiment I always share regarding the Nordstrom anniversary sale. You don’t need anything from it, plain and simple. In all the buzz surrounding it, it can be easy to forget that! This year especially, times are hard. So while I’m excited to share all sorts of inspiration regarding the sale like I do every year, remember that if it’s not for you, thats perfectly fine.

Love from the Sunshine State,
