My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

July 19, 2021

I know I’m way behind on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post this year!  I just got back from a tropical vacation. It felt so good to finally get to travel again, though to be honest, our trip did have some ups and downs (post coming soon).  But back to the anniversary sale. I really feel that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has changed over the years.  I think it used to showcase more new fashion, but now I’d say the sale is all about great basics.  But I’m not complaining, because who doesn’t need fab basics?  Here are my picks from the sale!


So far I’ve only ordered this basic cardigan sweater. I’ve worn my cozy black cardigan, purchased from the Anniversary Sale several years ago, half to death and it’s definitely time for a replacement!

Have you shopped the sale? Are you planning to? I’d love to hear what you have your eye on.  Let us know in comments!

Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and look fierce!
