Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Top Picks

Hey y’all, and happy Friday! Hope y’all have had a good week. I’m happy I made it through my first full work week in over a month. Anyways, early access to the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started today! As promised, I’m not going to go overboard with NSale content, since so many bloggers talk about it constantly. However, I do think the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great opportunity to get investment pieces from quality brands at good savings. Therefore, today I’m sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 top picks. You can shop now if you have a Nordstrom card. If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, no worries. You can browse and make your wish list for when the sale opens to the public one week from today (July 19). Or if there’s something you really want and don’t want it to sell out, it’s not too late to apply for a Nordstrom card so you can shop now. Check out this post for more info on the benefits of a Nordstrom card, as well as general NSale tips.

Without further ado, here are my 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks. I have organized them by the following categories: handbags/wallets, shoes, jewelry, and clothing.

UPDATE: This post originally contained all my top picks from the first day of early access. I have updated it at 1:00pm EST on Friday, July 19 to reflect which of these picks are currently still in stock on the first day of public access. I have unlinked sold out items and notated them as such. I kept the names of the sold out items in the list though, so that I could go back in future years and see what all was included in offerings. Hope this makes sense!

2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Handbags & Wallets

If you’re like me and love Tory Burch bags but don’t love the price tag, then the NSale is a great chance to get a classic Tory Burch bag at significant savings. The Tory Burch Everly Tote is nearly identical to the bag I bought in last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (pictured below).

The Tory Burch bag pictured above was actually the only thing I bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year. If you’re looking to buy just one splurge investment piece during the sale that you will use for years to come, I recommend the Tory Burch Everly Tote. The tan color that I have goes with everything, and it comes in black and blush pink as well. Tory Burch bags hold up really well too. If you’re shopping for a new bag during the sale, I recommend these:

Tory Burch Everly Leather Hobo
Kate Spade Shirley Leather Crossbody Bag
Tory Burch Everly Flap Saddle Bag
Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Tote (SOLD OUT)
Tory Burch Everly Leather Tote (my top pick!)
Kate Spade Jackson Street Collette Leather Satchel
Tory Burch Mini Everly Leather Crossbody Bag
Tory Burch Everly Leather Swingpack

And if you’re looking for a wallet, I recommend the Tory Burch Everly Leather Passport Continental Wallet. I have had a Tory Burch leather wallet for almost two years now and I love it.

2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Sunglasses

There’s no shortage of Kate Spade and Tory Burch sunnies in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I have multiple pairs of both Kate Spade and Tory Burch sunglasses, and I’ve never paid full price for any of them. My newest pair is almost five years old, so the quality is outstanding.

I hope that y’all enjoyed browsing my 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale top picks. Although I do earn a small commission if you purchase through my links, please keep in mind that I curated this shopping guide solely based on my personal style preferences and what I believe are quality brands worth investing in at a discount. I don’t want to simply link everything that every other blogger is sharing. I know many people feel like Instagram is Nordstrom sale overload during the second half of July. However, Nordstrom truly is one of my favorite retailers with many of my favorite brands, so that’s why I cover it here on Palmettos & Pineapples.

In addition, I want to encourage y’all to shop responsibly. Yes, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to snag some pieces at a discount. However, as many bloggers I respect have already said today, it is just a sale. If you don’t shop it, either because it’s not in your budget or you simply don’t want to, that’s totally okay. As a full disclaimer, I am not shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. I feel like I have bought enough lately. Although I found lots of great pieces while window shopping, there’s nothing that will fill a significant gap in my wardrobe that I feel compelled to buy at the moment. I put this shopping guide together because I actually really enjoy window shopping, and I also want to serve my readers who are shopping the sale.

If you do shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I recommend setting a budget, and then taking full inventory of your closet. As you add items to your cart on the Nordstrom website ask yourself the following:

“Am I buying this because I have FOMO on a great deal,” OR “Am I buying this because I really love it, it fills a gap in my closet, and I know I will enjoy wearing/using it for years to come?” 

If your answer is the former, I recommend not buying it. Nothing is a great deal if it ends up being an impulse buy that just sits in your closet. On another note, no sale justifies racking up credit card debt. I believe a Nordstrom credit card can be beneficial if you shop there regularly, but only if you pay your balance every month. So if you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, please don’t charge more to any credit card than you are able to pay off this month. Because interest charges defeat the purpose of buying something on sale in the first place! I love shopping and a good sale, but I also don’t want to be responsible for contributing to the culture of mass consumerism and irresponsible spending.

If you do shop the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, let me know what you get! Have a lovely weekend!
