My 2020 NSALE Favorites for Women

I’ve rounded up my favorite picks from the women’s section in this years Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or as some call it, the NSALE. The women’s section includes shoes, clothing, handbags, jewelry and accessories.

Obviously there is a ton of cute stuff in the sale, however I decided to go about sharing it with you a little differently this year. Instead of posting all the things in each section, because that can be annoyingly overwhelming, I only picked my absolute favorites from a few different categories.

This year I’ll also be creating and styling more outfit options. If there is an item you love from the sale but aren’t sure what to wear it with, let me know in the comments below. I’ll pick a few and give ideas for you in a different post.



I’m sticking to simple, classic shoes this year that I know will stay in my closet.


Now that we are in Maryland and not in Texas anymore, I’m going to need a heavier winter coat to stay warm.


I’m looking at black jeans this year because they are considered a designer pair. Designer styles never go on sale so I’ll probably be grabbing two pair to try.
HUDSON – Barbara High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans / PAIGE – Hoxton Raw Hem Ankle Jeans




Typically, I would get caught up with wanting all the sweaters and cardigans. I’ve learned over the years that I end up not being able to wear them all or purchase others from Target or similar retailers. I’ll only be buying a few neutral cardigans that are really good quality so they will last me all Fall and Winter long. I’m hoping my size in the LEITH COZY LONG CARDIGAN won’t be sold out by the time I can shop.


Last year I didn’t purchase any handbags or many accessories because I just didn’t love them. This year I found a Tory Burch shoulder bag that I think I may splurge on. It comes in black and cognac which would make it a classic piece to pair with almost everything.


In 100% transparency, I purchase most all of my pajamas, lounge wear and athletic wear from other retailers that are a little more affordable. I am loving the Zella Live In Jogger Pants so I may give those a try.

I’ve been shopping the Nordstrom Sale for several years now and while I wouldn’t consider myself a master at knowing all the ins and outs, there are a few things to note.

Nordstrom has a few of their own exclusive brands and within those brands, certain top sellers show up year after year. The white waffle henley pictured above is one of those items and I really love it. They sell out fast so if your size and the color you want is available, grab it fast.

If you haven’t checked out my previous blog post explaining the sale and how it works, click HERE. I’ve shared last years favorites, including the cutest pointed toe bootie and several ways to style them. A very similar bootie was released this year from the same designer and it’s my number one shoe pick!!
