What I Bought From the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Today I shopped the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and honestly, this might be my favorite one to-date. Sure, I feel like this after each sale, but this year, I truly believe I got the best of the best pieces that are classic staples to wear from work to weekend. I love that we are moving away from lounge to more tailored and stylish items. I've enjoyed "getting dressed" daily and I know this pieces are really going to make my fall wardrobe complete.

There are a lot of wear now-wear later pieces, especially if you have a business casual (and dressier) workplace. Light neutrals, faux leather, investment knits, and so much more, I can't wait to share everything with you! So sit back, relax, and happy scrolling/shopping!

Just as a reminder, Icon access starts July 6 Ambassador access beings Thursday July 7, Influencer access starts Saturday July 9, and then EVERYONE can shop July 15!

Editor's Note: I'm 5'10 and sharing all the fit details for each item below. Click images to shop all products directly.

Reiss Longline Camel Coat

One of the OG closet staples that I love so much. Even though I already have a few camel coats, this one came home with me. The fabric is so soft and luxe, and the belt gives you some versatility to change up the look. This jacket is unlined, making it great for the fall, or winter if you live in a milder climate. A great investment piece, almost $200 off right now.

Fit is true to size; wearing a 4.

Nordstrom Belted Longline Coat

Run, don't walk, for this UNDER $100 staple. Compared to the camel coat, this one also has a belt but is slightly heavier with a lining.

Fit is true to size; wearing size small.

Vince Cardigan Coat

For good reason, this was one of last year's best sellers and I love the update they made this year to the collar. The cost per wear will be almost nothing - pair with loungewear or dress up with jeans and heels for a dinner out. You'll have to stop yourself from wearing it. Also comes in a rich charcoal.

Fit is true to size; wearing an XS.

Reiss Leather Moto Jacket

If you don't already have a good leather jacket, this is a great deal - yes, it's still an investment at $450 but it's a savings of $240 right now for a classic, quality leather jacket. I was very impressed with how soft, yet durable this leather was.

Fit is true to size, wearing US6.

L'AGENCE Bouclé Blazer

Versatile workwear seems to be one of the biggest trends of the sale this year. This olive green is so pretty in person and I love the texture this nubby bouclé adds to any outfit.

Runs small, size up especially if you plan to layer; wearing size 6.

L'AGENCE Cropped Tweed Blazer

Another chic tweed blazer with the same gorgeous bouclé fabric as the green blazer. I love the structured shoulders balanced with the cropped length and black button detail.

Runs small, size up especially if planning to layer; wearing size 6.

Topshop Suit Jacket

I almost didn't try this on but I'm SO glad I did. It's probably the most comfortable blazer and is a great wear now, wear later piece for only $56!

True to size, but cut for oversized look. I don't recommend sizing up. Wearing size 4 (my normal Topshop size)

Reiss Tailored Blazer

This is the prettiest soft blush pink blazer - the color is even better in-person. Online pictures just don't do it justice. I had it on my wishlist and was so happy it did not disappoint.

Fits true to size, but close-fit silhouette; wearing size 4

St. John Knit Wrap

I bought this last year in a lighter color and couldn't resist adding another St. John warp to my closet. I love the weight of this elegant knit and whole-heartedly recommend if you are looking for a forever item to add to your closet.


Nordstrom Button Down Shirt

If you don't already have at least one white button-down in your closet, this one really impressed me. The fabric was soft and not see-through, and the under $50 price tag makes it a no-brainer.

Fits true to size but I sized up for a relaxed/oversized fit; wearing size small.

Nordstrom Cashmere Sweater

If you've been a FJ follower for a while now, you know I buy this sweater every year in at least one color. I wear these sweaters all the time in the winter - they are really great for layering under jackets, too.

Fits true to size, wearing size small.

Nordstrom Signature Cashmere Sweater

Compared to the oatmeal cashmere sweater above, this style has a more relaxed fit and is more of a tissue-weight cashmere. Again, great for layering and wearing throughout fall, winter and even into spring.

Fits TTS. Wearing am XS

St. John Open Knit Sweater

I was so excited when I put this on and it was not see-through. I'm not wearing anything under it except a nude bra. And then when I saw the iconic gold buttons added to the cuffs. Done. Definitely worth the splurge.

Fits true to size, wearing size small.

La Ligne Sailor Stripe Sweater

Definitely will be wearing this starting right now with denim shorts. Easily wear with jeans or dress up with a pair of black trousers for work.

True to size, cut for a relaxed fit - wearing a small.

La Ligne Stripe Cotton Sweater

When I saw that this was black and white stripe (vs. the common navy and white), I knew it was coming home with me. This 100% cotton sweater is another great piece to wear most of the year, pairing it with denim shorts on summer evenings or jeans and boots for the colder months.

Runs small, size up. Wearing size medium.

FRAME Puff Sleeve Sweater

The FRAME puff sleeve sweater was one of my favorite buys from last year and I love that this year's update has a smocked detail around the body of the sweater.

Fits true to size, wearing size small.

Ted Baker Faux Leather Skirt

I was shocked, SHOCKED when I saw this was faux leather. It is so soft and such great quality. The camel color is also gorgeous.

Fits TTS. Wearing brand size 2 (fits like a 4-6).

Halogen Faux Leather Shorts

Another faux leather piece I was really impressed with were these under $40 shorts. They run a little long, but I prefer that length to give them some versatility for how I can wear them.

Fits TTS. Wearing size small.

Reiss Tailored Trousers

Wow, I was so impressed with this wool blend trouser that are only $164. I've definitely been gravitating towards trousers this season and this pair is such a great item to add to your work wardrobe. I sized up for a more menswear inspired fit. *My creative manager is 5'6 and you can see how the pants fit on her (she also sized up) vs. how they fit on me at 5'10.

Recommend sizing up for a relaxed fit. Wearing size 6.

Alo Bra & Leggings / Nike Sweatshirt / Sneakers / Hydroflask

This color is just so rich and perfect - not to mention the set itself is really comfy. You also can't go wrong with this oversized hoodie for under $50.

Set runs true to size, wearing a small in both pieces. / Sweatshirt fits oversized, wearing a xsmall. / Sneakers run half size big, wearing an 8.

Vest / Top / Leggings / Sneakers / Hydroflask

I spotted this vest in store and couldn't believe I missed it online. It's not stiff at all, unlike some puffers - and I love the sherpa shirttail detail. (I'm also going to buy it in black because it's just so good.) The white top reminds me a lot of the popular Free People long sleeve but this one isn't so long and oversized. And the leggings are some of the OG sale items I always rebuy.

Vest runs true to size, wearing a small. / Top runs true to size but I sized up so I could dry it without worry, wearing a small. / Leggings run true to size, wearing a small. / Sneakers run half size big, wearing an 8.

Sweatshirt / Shorts / Sneakers / Hydroflask

This under $60 sweatshirt reminds me so much of the scuba ones from lulu but for a fraction of the cost. I wasn't so sure about these shorts but so glad I tried them on - they're the perfect athleisure short and they're going to be worn on many walks with the dogs when I get home.

Sweatshirt is slightly oversized, wearing a small but could have probably also done a xsmall if it were in stock at the store. / Shorts run true to size, wearing a small. / Sneakers run half size big, wearing a 8.

Thermal Top / Joggers / Sneakers

This top was so warm and will definitely get a lot of wear as the temps start to drop this fall. And one of my all time favorite joggers are part of the sale again if you haven't tried them yet!

Top is fitted but true to size, wearing a small. / Joggers run true to size, wearing a small. / Sneakers run half size big, wearing a 8.

    What is the actual inseam measurement on the Topshop Jeans? The Nordstrom site says 30 but they look to be more cropped…

    Great overview – thank you!

    For the BLANKNYC Madison Ripped Straight Leg Jeans, they look so good! The color on the site is so different than the pics. Does it look that different in person? On the fence only due to the color. Thanks for any input.

    When I found this post on Pinterest, the picture was of you wearing an amazing chunky off white sweater with a turtleneck that had a decorative edge. It’s the 4th sweater from the left on the rack of sweaters in the top picture in this post.

    I have scoured this post and the Nordstrom site and I cannot find the sweater! It’s driving me crazy! lol help!
