With everything that's going on in the world, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can seem pretty trivial.  I've personally been shopping a lot less lately, and even said the other day, "if I can't sweat in it or sleep in it, I don't need it right now." If you're like me and fall into this same category, the Nordstrom sale can still be a great time to stock up on some basics and beauty products that you use year round regardless of how much you're going out and getting dressed up! I thought this year I would share things I already own that are included in the sale as well as things that I've bought or am planning on purchasing. 

1. Free People Pullover: this is a great lightweight long sleeve that will transition well into fall and would look great under a vest or for layering. 

2.  Hanky Panky: I've been wearing these for years and love the regular rise option. 

3. Zella Live-In Leggings: a good basic everyday black legging. 

4. Alo Moto Leggings: I own these in several colors and love that they take you from the studio/gym to errands and even look good with a sweater in the winter. 

5. Urban Decay Setting Spray: I've been using this for at least a year and it's the only thing that holds my makeup in place during the Texas summers.

6. Neulash: I restock this every year. It's a staple in my routine and keeps my lashes long and full.

7. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Set: I was probably most excited for this. I have and love the liner and lipstick and cannot wait to try the gloss. 

8. Cashmere Sweater: if you're looking to buy cashmere pre-fall the sale is the best time to do it. I prefer a lighter weight since we live in Texas but saw some beautiful heavier sweaters in store. 

9. Chantelle Undies:  I saw Things I Bought and Liked post about these and she's pretty spot on with her recs so I thought I'd give them a try. I was looking for no-shows to wear under my leggings that weren't too flimsy.

10. True & Co Bras: These are a new to my closet item that I'm obsessed with. I might never wear a real bra again. 

11. Zella Sports Bra: I'm all about long-line and high-neck sports bras these days. These seem to be a bit thicker and I like the detail at the neckline. 

12. Zella Tee: love how long this is with the slits on the side. This would be perfect to wear over leggings in the fall or tucked into shorts for the rest of the summer.

13. Madewell Scarf: not sure why I need another scarf, but here we are. I love these colors together.

14. Cashmere Scarf: I have a similar one from a previous sale and it is great as a scarf but also a wrap when you are (eventually) traveling or in cold buildings. 

15. Spike Hoops: I'm a sucker for earrings these days and the spike details on these are right up my alley.

16. CZ Huggie Earrings: I wear my huggie diamond earrings every day and if you're wanting the look for less these are a great alternative.

17. CZ Studs: Another great look for less and such a steal during the sale.

18. Longchamp: these bags are a workhorse. I've had mine since college and love how durable they are and that I don't have to worry about them getting messed up. 

19. Stud Sneakers: these are so close to a pair of Golden Goose shoes that I've been lusting after for a year. I love the stud details and these can truly be worn with so much. 

20. Nordstrom Pajamas: I can sleep in this so it made it's way into my cart in a heartbeat. 

21. B&W Sneakers: If you go for a more clean looking shoe, these do not disappoint. Love the black detail  and how versatile they are.
