5 Things You Need From the NSale Before It Ends

5 Things you Need from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before it's Over - M Loves M @marmar

Just like that, another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming to a close. Doesn’t it feel like I just put together my wish list for Early Access?! I’ve seriously been loving the things I did end up going with this year {see this outfit for my new favorite date night top} and the ones I’ve listed in this post for you guys. Sadly, a lot of the really good stuff sold out, but not to worry there are still some great pieces to snatch up! Read on for the 5 things you need from the NSale before it ends!

#1: Tops

Even though many of these tops and sweaters are made for fall, there are some great transitional pieces. I have a feeling the cold-shoulder and longer sweater trend will be very popular next season, so might be a good idea to stock up on those while they’re still in stock. I’m also crossing my fingers for more of this sweater! I love it so much! If any of you got it, I am so jealous!!

This top might be my favorite #NSale purchase

This ruffled blouse is so pretty and comes in a few other color options! I love the light blue color!

#2: Jeans

Jeans are a staple item, period. I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because all the jeans I would normally buy are such an amazing price that I can stock up on a few new pairs. The AG and Paige jeans are some of the most popular styles every year, and I got both! I had to!

Summer style always includes some red, white, & blue- preferably together

“If you’re going to get jeans with holes in them, they might as well be on sale!” – something my Grandma would probably say!

#3: Boots

I’m so excited for fall because I love bundling up in sweaters and booties. The boots that are in this year’s sale are a must! I tend to stick to tan or gray boots but will sometimes add in a black boot like the knee highs listed here. Those are a pair that you can wear through winter!

I love this pair especially because it's under $100

This heeled ankle bootie is perfect! It’s selling out so fast, so another favorite pair is this style {so similar!} or this one!

#4: Loungewear & Intimates

We can’t forget about intimates! I love treating myself to new pair of pjs or a comfy yet still stylish bra. Check out my favorites here.

#5: Bags

Bags are my favorite items to buy from the #NSale. I love seeing what new designs are out and being able to get them on a discount. All of these listed are great for Summer and Fall, so why not splurge a little?! wink wink

This flowy blouse is even prettier in person

I couldn’t resist this Tory Burch bag! The size is perfect. It holds so much yet isn’t too bulky. I love the chain strap detail and the blush color. Other favorite bags include this one and I’m really really tempted by this velvet one. What do you think??

The #NSale is on for only a few more days and ends August 6th! I’d recommend grabbing some of these must-have items before the prices go up for fall! If you get anything, or have gotten anything already, I’d love to see. Tag me on Instagram so I can check it out! Even though I love summer, the NSale definitely is making me look forward to fall! How about you?



  • Rach

    This is a great round up from the sale! They are definitely things you don’t want to miss! Have a great weekend Mara!


    • Thanks so much Rach! I loved your recent round up too! So many great finds!

  • Paige Cassandra Flamm

    Love all the pieces you’re wearing in the last look! It’s gorgeous!


    • Ah thanks so much Paige! I’ve been having so much fun with all the new styles!

  • I love your suggestion of that tie sweater, Mara! It’s so pretty! I did pretty good on the sale. I got the Diptyque candle set, leggings, sneakers, house shoes and some biker shorts. I wish I could get more, but I focused on what I really needed over what I really want, ha! I’m in dire need of booties right now and hope fall gets here sooner rather than later. We usually start getting cold in October/November if we’re lucky. We didn’t have a fall/winter last year so I’m crossing my fingers because I love fall fashion!

    Best of faith on your move! I know today will be hard for you, but just think about all the new memories you’ll make and the fun decorating you’ll get to do! Have a WONDERFUL weekend! xo

    • Wow! You got some great finds! I had my eye on that candle set as well, so cute! I love fall fashion too and often have to restrain myself from going overboard on the sale because I know I’ll just want to shop again later in the fall! Let me know what booties you end up getting, I’m a huge fan of the Vince Camuto line right now!

      Thanks so much for the wishes Huong! Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Your comment about how if you buy jeans with holes in them, they might as well be on sale made me laugh! Definitely something all of our grandmas would say 🙂 Great finds!

      It sounds like something I would say and I’m in my 30’s. 😀 Call me traditional, but I can’t bring myself to buy distressed or hole-y jeans. (I chalk it up to my mom sewing all of my sister’s and my clothes growing up and never letting us purchase trendy pieces or brands.)

      • I hear ya !! I seriously question every distressed jean I purchase. I’ve been wearing them lately but I go through phases where I HATE them! I’m like why can’t they not have holes?!
