Top blogger Emily of Fabulously Overdressed shares her affordable picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale On A Budget!

It’s been a rough year. I think we all are ready for 2020 to be over, am I right? One bright spot for this August is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which always makes me happy! But I want to preface this post by saying that it is easy to overspend during this sale, so I highly recommend setting a budget and only buying the things you really need. Or maybe you don’t need anything, and that’s ok too! This is just to share my favorite items from the sale; items that I would personally purchase and wear or use. And the best part? Everything I’ve included is UNDER $100! A lot of items are a lot less than that, so this is the post for you if you want to shop the sale but don’t want to spend too much.

I wish I could have shopped the sale in person so I could show you everything in a try-on session, but not this year! Luckily, many of the items I posted are brands I know and love so I am very comfortable recommending them. I hope this guide has helped you filter through the thousands of items included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year! Let me know what you picked up in the sale!

    I did purchase a few bras, barefoot dreams cardigan, sneakers, PMD pro, just things I needed this year except for the cardigan. I have had my eye on the barefoot cardigan for years, so this is a treat for me for being trapped in my house for 5 months. I might go to the store today and than pick up lunch at Wright’s Gourmet. Nortstrom would be the only store I walk into. I limit my time and I know what I’m looking for. There were some items I didn’t order because I wasn’t sure of the fit.
