First Things First, The Best Dresses At The Nordy Sale!
If there’s one thing the readers of Candie Anderson love, it’s definitely a fabulous dress! Thankfully for us, there are tons of gorgeous dresses on sale. My only problem is knowing how many to feature? Today, I’m only featuring a few…but rest assured next week I will have even more trendy dresses for fall on deep discount!
This midi lace dress is a fashion blogger and celebrity favorite! It retails for $89.90, but for a limited time, it’s on sale for $58.90! Talk about a bargain. It comes in tons of different colors. This pretty rose pink shade is a must for summer wedding guest season.
Dark floral prints are ideal for fall!
Animal Prints Are A Must For Fall
As a huge fan of everything leopard print, I was so excited that animal print came back in a very big way last fall. This season leopard print is still incredibly popular, but snake embossed leather is equally popular! We’re seeing it everywhere from leather jackets to tops, pants and shoes. I have my eye on a couple pairs of boots and mules.
Here are a few fall essentials for gals who love animal print!
Leopard print is everything! This leopard print cardigan is beyond fabulous. You can wear it all fall and will be a staple for years to come.
This pretty leopard print slip dress will look amazing with a suede Moto jacket, a leather jacket, ankle boots, strappy heeled sandals and more.
Save a bundle on plaid tops and coats at the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
I LOVE plaid, especially for fall. I live in my Rails plaid tops and coat. I bought a plaid wrap coat a few years ago and wear it all the time during the chilly fall and winter months. I pair it with my ankle boots, skinny jeans, and sneakers, as well as dresses and over the knee boots!
Here are a few plaid tops and coats I’m coveting for fall.
Rails is one of my favorite brands in the world! Their plaid shirts are beyond comfortable. I love rolling up the sleeves and wearing them with my denim cutoff shorts in the spring and summer months. Come fall I wear them all the time with skinny jeans and boots. I can’t even begin to tell you how comfortable they are and how amazing the quality is. I own a few in a variety of colors. I bought my first one nearly four years ago and it’s still going strong! This one is available in tons of different colors and is on sale for less than $100!
Blazers are incredibly popular this year as well! This fabulous plaid blazer is ideal with high waisted jeans, denim skirts, and more. I absolutely adore it.
This plaid coat reminds me of something our style icon “Rachel Green” would have worn, doesn’t it? If Rachel could have worn it, you know it’s a must!
Classy Sweaters Every Woman Needs For Fall and Winter
Like many of you, I live in cardigans throughout the year! They can be worn with shorts on chilly summer nights, will look great with skinny jeans come fall. A great cardigan is a must! This cardigan is on sale for $31.90, and will be near $50 once the sale ends. It’s available in many different colors which is phenomenal!
Barefoot Dreams cardigans are always the first to sell out. They are comfy, chic and are deeply discounted! Here are a few favorites.
The funnel neck sweater is incredibly popular for fall 2019 as well! This sweater has great reviews as well, and is currently under $50. It comes in a multitude of colors.
Vince is one of my favorite brands on the planet, but it can be quite pricey. Thankfully there are quite a few gorgeous knit Vince sweaters at incredibly low prices. They will look great with your denim cutoffs this summer, and will definitely be a must come fall. You can wear them with skinny jeans and ankle booties, a cute denim skirt and sandals or over the knee boots – and that’s just the beginning.
You will never regret investing in a beautiful Vince sweater. Everything I’ve ever bought from the brand is both classy and timeless. This wool/cashmere blend mock turtleneck sweater this beautiful neutral shade will be in rotation for years to come!
Buy A New Sweatshirt and Jacket For Fall On Deep Discount!
Over the last few years I have made the best fall and winter jacket purchases at the sale. I bought my first Patagonia sweater a few years ago at the sale and quickly became obsessed! I then bought the black leather Moto jacket of my dreams and my suede Moto jacket, which I wear all the time. If you have your eye on a Moto jacket, it’s best to grab one ASAP so you don’t miss out on them. Last year I was looking to buy a BlankNYC jacket but they sold out immediately! I’m hoping they’ll have more in stock this year, so everyone can score one. They’re that good.
If there’s one item I feel you should buy at this sale, this suede Moto jacket is definitely it. I bought it in this coffee bean tan shade years ago, and I simply adore it. I wear it over camis, basic shirts, band shirts, blouses and sweaters. I pair it with skinny jeans, flared jeans, boyfriend jeans, skirts, and dresses. It is available in coffee bean and in gray. It’s on sale for $125, and after the sale ends will be back up to $188.
I bought my first leather Moto jacket during the famed Nordstrom Anniversary Sale three years ago and have never looked back. It’s one of my favorite items I own. I wear it constantly. It’s always in rotation throughout the year! It is definitely one of the best investments I’ve ever made. This gorgeous moto jacket is currently on sale for less than $200, and is just as popular in 2020 as it was in 2019! Don’t miss on this gorgeous jacket that will be $299 AFTER the sale!
This denim jacket is perfect for cool summer nights and will be a staple in your wardrobe come fall as well. I can see wearing it with paperbag shorts this summer, and with a fun dress come fall.
Every woman needs a classic trench that she can throw on and look effortlessly chic in. This jacket resembles the camel colored Burberry trench coat we all love. This one is under $150, and is perfect for fall and spring! You can wear it everywhere from church to the office, date night, weddings, on vacation and more.
This THREAD & SUPPLY Wubby Fleece Pullover in Charcoal is a fashion blogger favorite. It sold out in 2018 before I could buy it. I ordered it in 2019 and can honestly tell you it is the warmest pullover I own. I wear it on our flower farm quite a bit in the wintertime, so I decided to purchase another in 2020. It just arrived a few days ago, and I have to admit the quality is the same. It’s incredibly warm and great quality. This is my favorite sweater!
I live in fleece in the chilly winter months! When our heater went out for a week or so in February my fleece sweatshirts and jackets really saved me and kept me warm.
I own a similar fleece Patagonia jacket that I absolutely adore and wear throughout the fall, winter and spring months. Patagonia and The North Face are two of my favorite brands, and always do my best to save on them during this sale!
AG Jeans Are Always A Must
I bought my first pair of AG jeans years ago and I’m still obsessed to this day! I wear them all the time. I own multiple pairs of legging skinny jeans and shorts. If you love the brand as much as I do or you’re looking to splurge on your first pair, you’re in luck. For the next few weeks you can save a bundle on AG jeans in a variety of styles, colors and washes. Here are a few favorites.
I own tw0 pairs of black AG The Legging Ankle Jeans and adore. They are so comfortable, they feel like you’re wearing leggings! Pair them with your booties, mules, sandals or sneakers and you’re set.
Pants I’m Obsessed With Annually At The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Zella leggings are my absolute favorite. I bought a pair years ago and wear them all the time with my sneakers, and with oversized sweaters and boots come fall. I also wear my Nordstrom lounge pants 24/7! They are the comfiest pants on the planet. I wear them on my walks with my dog and neighbor every night, I also wear them around the house every chance I can get.
These are the BEST black leggings on the planet! They provide great coverage and come in two other colors as well. They are typically the first to sell out as they are phenomenal.
Pajama Sets You’ll Love Throughout The Year
I bought my first pajama set last year and quickly became obsessed. I now own about five pairs in a variety of styles. My sleep quickly improved once I started wearing lightweight pajamas in soft materials. I recently shared a few of the best pajama sets for summer, and I’m excited to share a few favorites for fall!
Pajama sets are my absolute weakness, especially this classy pair! I bought a similar pair and spent nearly $100 on them…on sale! This pair has 1.1k amazing reviews, and they’re deeply discounted for a limited time. I’m going to order them in black and in white, and in blue too!
They’re also available in shorts for these hot summer days we’re experiencing. They’re available in four different colors and a pretty floral print.
Save A Bundle On Trendy Shoes For Fall
It’s no secret, I LOVE shoe shopping. I featured the best spring shoes a few months ago, and am currently working on a sandal post for mid-summer. Shopping for shoes is my weakness! Every year I share a few shoes I’m coveting during my fashion essentials post annually, and then I do an extensive post on the best shoes at the sale a few days later once the sale has settled down a bit. There are so many great shoes in the hottest trends! You can save on athletic shoes, trendy sneakers, pumps, mules, booties, sandals and the best over the knee boots! Here are a few favorites from Tory Burch, Steve Madden, Stuart Weitzman and more.
Open toe booties tend to sell out very fast during the legendary Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This pair is so fabulous. You can wear them now during the warm summer months, and pair them with skinny jeans, a basic top and a long cardigan come fall.
Here’s a trendy pair of heeled sandals that you can wear time and time again all summer long! They’ll look amazing with your wedding guest dress, out to dinner, lunch dates, brunch, and more. They come in a wide array of colors and in this trendy snake print!
If you’re shopping for new booties for fall, you are in luck! You can save a bundle on classic ankle booties and trendy shoes for fall. Here are a few favorites!
This snake embossed bootie is available in a wide variety of colors and styles! As I mentioned above, snake embossed leather is a HUGE trend for fall. There’s a lighter snake embossed print that is selling out quickly, I have a feeling this one will sell out fast too. PS: They’re currently on sale and less than $60 for fall!
This style looks great with skinny jeans, shorts, skirts and dresses too.
Knee high boots are another hot trend for fall! They’ll look great over skinny jeans and paired with skirts and dresses. This style comes in this beautiful taupe shade called tortilla suede, in snake embossed leather and more.
My love for Stuart Weitzman is strong! I own three pairs of his over the knee boots and strappy heeled sandals. Not only are they gorgeous in person, but incredibly comfortable. If you’ve been dreaming of owning a pair of his boots, be sure to grab these before they sell out as they rarely go on sale. You will live in them all fall, winter and through the holiday season.
Hunter Tour boots are my absolute weakness. I actually did a review on my love for glossy Tour boots a few years ago because I love them so much. They are lightweight and so comfortable. I’ve walked for miles in mine and own them in tons of colors. This pair is on sale for less than $100.
Every year I buy a new pair of Nike Free sneakers for my mom and me! You can save so much on them at the Nordy’s sale! This pair is well under $100. It comes in black and in white too.
Give me a pair of pink sneakers and I’m happy girl! Aren’t these so fun? They will brighten up any outfit and will inspire you to work out more. Okay, they’ll inspire ME to work out more! 🙂 PS: They’re less than $75!
These are my FAVORITE shoes on the planet. Yes, I’m talking about slippers. I can honestly tell you that I’m wearing mine right now. My neighbors probably think I don’t own any other shoes because I wear them all the time. My mom and I have a flower farm and I’m always working outside. These slippers are so comfy. I wore them this morning out back to feed my ducks, and I’m wearing them while I sit at my desk. I LOVE them. You never see them on sale for under $60. I’m buying another pair for myself and a few as Christmas gifts for my family.
Gorgeous Jewelry You’ll Adore At The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Like many of you, I love accessorizing my outfits with trendy pendant necklaces, gold jewelry, hoops and earrings by Kate Spade and Kendra Scott. Now is a great time to shop for designer jewelry – from costume jewelry to fine jewelry! You can actually save a bundle on Michele watches, diamonds and more.
Delicate necklaces are incredibly popular in the world of fashion. This beautiful necklace looks like a million bucks but is only $29! It’ll make a great gift for anyone on your shopping list for the holidays.
I can’t tell you how long I dreamt of owning a Michele watch, it had to be well over 10 years. I bought it during a gift card event at full price and it was one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I wouldn’t trade my Michele watch for anything. It’s absolutely beautiful. If you’ve been dreaming of owning a Michele, you’re in luck. You can save a bundle during the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Here are a few favorites.

I shared my love for shoes in the section above, but I must admit I love handbags just as much as I love shoes. If you’re searching for a fabulous leather handbag, a gorgeous tote bag and more, you’re in luck! Here are a few gorgeous bags you’ll adore.
Shopping for new Tory Burch handbags is a favorite hobby of mine throughout the year! It’s always a plus when I can save a bundle on my favorite brand.

Beauty Deals You Can’t Pass Up On!
I love shopping for the best beauty must haves at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This week I stopped wearing makeup for a few days so I could conserve my Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover until the sale started! The first item I splurged on this morning was the Bi-Facil! There are so many great items to save on from Fresh, Laura Mercier, and more. Here are a few favorites! I will link up to my new beauty post in a few days as well!
I bought my first Charlotte Tilbury lip liner a few months ago and I can honestly tell you, I’ll never buy another brand again. Lip Cheat is the best lip liner on the planet. It makes your lips look fuller! She has the best nude lipsticks. If you’ve been thinking of buying a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, lip liner and lip gloss, now is a great time to do so, as this the cheapest I’ve ever seen them. This set is amazing!
While I have yet to try this T3 hairdryer that claims to “fight frizz”, I can tell you that I absolutely adore my T3 Proi blow dryer. My hair is very thick, coarse, tends to frizz and can be unmanageable! It’s made quite the difference in my hair. This hair dryer has amazing reviews! If you have hair that frizzes, it might be worth the try!!!
I own the T3 curling wand trio and absolutely love it. I use it all the time, and actually featured it in this hair post I did a few years ago. I have been itching to try one of their curling irons because I hear they’re phenomenal! Now is a great time to do so as they’re so inexpensive! I’ve already added this one to my cart.
If you know me, you know my love for everything Tom Ford is strong! I have very sensitive skin, and his products work the best for me. I live for his lipsticks, bronzer, bronzer brush, foundation stick, highlighter and that’s just the beginning. I recently purchased a few of his eyeshadow quads after using his cream eyeshadow for years. I bought two in April, and I am head over heels in love with his eyeshadow now too. I have not touched my other eyeshadow palettes since. The colors glide right on, look fabulous on, there’s no fallout and the color looks amazing the entire day/night. Trust me, Tom Ford is worth the hype. I’m a follower for life! This set includes an eyeshadow quad and two mini deluxe lipsticks.
If you’re like me and use your BeautyBlender to apply your foundation, concealer, contour, and highlighter, you definitely need to take advantage of this great price! For a limited time you can get two full size BeautyBlenders and a case for only $35!
My love for DryBar is strong! I love the Sake Bomb shampoo, mask, Hot Toddy heat spray, their amazing hair clips and that’s just the beginning. This set is so great, it’s unbelievable. This DryBar Set includes The Brush Crush Heated Straightening Brush, their Prep Rally detangler, Hot Toddy heat protectant spray, Triple Sec texturizer, Detox Dry Shampoo and the best hair clips on the planet. My hair is so incredibly thick and these clips actually hold them! This is such a rarity for me.
If you want natural, thick brows, you need Anastasia’s amazing Brow Wiz pencil. I have used it for years. Even though I have thick hair, my brows are very thin and light. This pencil actually makes it look like I have eyebrows! I love it. This set not only includes her Brow Wiz which is beloved by beauty bloggers and celebrities, it also includes her popular brow gel which will keep them looking amazing all day!
Fresh is the only moisturizer I use on my dry sensitive skin. A few weeks ago for my birthday I splurged and bought a similar kit (it didn’t have the soy cleanser) at Sephora. I am so glad I purchased it. The toner is soothing, and the rose face cream has been so cooling in this dry summer heat we’ve been experiencing here in Northern California. I highly recommend this kit, it includes:
- A Rose Face Mask
- Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream
- Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner (it actually has rose petals in it!)
- Soy Face Cleanser
- Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment With Sunscreen (SPF 15)
This incredibly popular body moisturizer has been beloved by men and women for decades! I purchased it a few months ago and I am hooked. It’s great for dry sensitive skin. I love that it’s unscented!
