If you’ve read any of my past articles, you would know that there’s nothing I love more than shopping on a budget. I love a good dupe as much as I love rewatching New Girl for the 100th time—and that’s saying something. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t also appreciate a little splurge every now and then—and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time for that.

One of the main reasons I love the Nordstrom sale is that I can find items that make great investment pieces but still get a great deal on them. You can find anything from classic items that everyone should have in their closet to wish list items you’ve been eyeing for a while. But more than anything else, the sale is the perfect time to invest in great coats, shoes, and accessories that you know you’ll wear for years to come. 

Here are 18 of the best Nordstrom Sale items that I think are worth splurging on (go ahead, treat yourself!):


Padmia Chelsea Boot, $99.90

I own a black pair of chunky boots that are very similar to this, and I've been wanting a white or cream pair since last fall. So when I saw these, I added them to my wish list immediately. The color is perfect, and Marc Fisher boots are known to be high quality.

Pointed Toe Bootie, $129.90

Everyone needs a pair of pointed-toe black booties, and this cult-favorite option is absolutely perfect. They go with everything, look super chic, and are high quality. I seriously live in black booties for fall and winter, so if any shoe is worth splurging on, it would be these.

Chelsea Lug Bootie, $249.90

At over $100 off, these boots are an insane deal. I think that the style and material of these are absolutely stunning, and they would make a great addition to anyone's wardrobe. I own very few designer pieces, but I would definitely consider purchasing these.

Stevie Bootie, $109.90

These mid-calf boots caught my eye immediately during my first scroll of the sale preview. I love how unique they are, but they're still classic enough that I would wear them in other seasons.


Air Zoom Pegasus 38 Running Shoes, $89.90

We've all been at the point where the only sneakers we own are basically falling apart. This all-white pair is not only great for running/working out, it's also the perfect way to round out a chic athleisure look.


Collar Textured Coat, $109.90

The coat selection is always the first thing I like to browse through during this sale. I believe that classic coats are one of the few items that are definitely worth an investment because you know that you can keep them for years. I love that this one is a classic silhouette, but the muted blue makes it a little bit unique.

2 colors available


Double Face Wool Coat, $129.90

All three colors of this coat are absolutely stunning, but I especially love this charcoal gray color because it's neutral but different from tan or black. You might be heading back to the office soon, so this coat is a perfect addition to your workwear wardrobe.

Faux Leather Leggings, $64.90

Our team can't stop talking about these leggings, but for good reason. They're one of the most versatile pieces of clothing ever—you can dress them up and wear them out or on a dinner date, or you can wear them with an athleisure look for ultimate cool-girl vibes. If you don't have a pair yet, now's the time; you won't see another price this low all season long.


Fleece Hoodie, $48.90

I've seen this hoodie all over Instagram, so I'm thinking it might finally be time to get one for myself. It's super versatile, and I feel like it would be one of those "nice hoodies" that you would feel cool in (please say other people have this feeling too?).

Beyond Yoga

Square Neck Crop Tank, $45.90

I've had my eye on Beyond Yoga for years—I've heard nothing but good things about how great the quality is and how soft the material is. This cropped square-neck tank is super flattering, and there's nothing I love more than when I don't have to wear a sports bra and a top to work out.

Beyond Yoga

High Waist Leggings, $62.90

Who doesn't love a matching set? At over $30 off, there's no better time than now to treat yourself to a cute new workout outfit. I always tell myself that I'm much more motivated to work out when I have a cute outfit to wear, and this set definitely fits that bill.

3 colors available


V-Neck Bralette, $37.90

I live in True & Co. bras, so I was beyond excited to see them in the sale. As someone with a larger chest, the bras I own from their True Body Lift line are some of the only wireless ones I own that are actually supportive. The soft, buttery material makes them perfect for wearing out and about or at home.

5 colors available


State Street Square Sunglasses, $99.90

I've been seeing people wearing this style of Ray-Bans for a little while now, and I think they're so cute and different. The silhouette is unique, but they're classic enough that you know you'll wear them for years to come.


Pebble Leather Crossbody Bag, $199.90

Coach has made a serious comeback in the last year or so (I have a bag and I'm obsessed), so what better time than now to grab one for yourself? It's the perfect mid-range price point for leather goods that makes you feel like it's a special treat but doesn't give you insane sticker shock.

Bony Levy

14K Gold Set of 2 Earrings, $185.90

If you're like me and only buy super cheap jewelry that tends to wear and tarnish, it might be time for us to take it up a notch. This set of two pairs of earrings is 14K gold, which is something I rarely see go on sale. It might seem like a high price tag now, but I think these everyday earrings would stand the test of time and save you money in the long run.

Argento Vivo

Herringbone Chain Necklace, $49.90

Argento Vivo jewelry is high quality at a mid-range price point. I love this gold herringbone chain necklace because it's definitely a wardrobe staple that I don't think is going out of style anytime soon, so I believe it's worth spending a little extra on.

2 colors available

Boy Smells

Late Bloomer Votive Candle Set, $56.00

Boy Smells is another brand that I've had my eye on forever. Not only is their branding insanely cute, but they also have a ton of unique scents that would make for a perfect addition to any room. Since you can't smell a candle when shopping online, this set of votives is a great way to test them all out.

Barefoot Dreams

CozyChic Throw Blanket, $97.90

I've been lusting after a Barefoot Dreams blanket for years, but I can never bring myself to shell out the $150. I own a robe, so I just know that this material cannot be duped. If I ever was going to take the plunge and buy one, it would definitely be from the Nordstrom Sale because the sale price can't be beat.
