The General Access stage of the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now here and I’m back with another round of recommendations (my original guide can be found HERE ). Fortunately, there is still an array of fabulous finds in stock so take a peek and happy shopping…prices go back up on 7/31!

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of everything in action as well as the Bottom Line…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale General Access: What’s in Stock and Worth It!

For sleepwear, there is nothing cozier than this *UGG Nya Short Pajamas set (wearing size small). The material is extra soft and adds warmth while enabling your limbs to stay cool. I paired the pj’s with the darling UGG Scuffitas in Echinacea and this color makes me so happy (also reviewed HERE) and the plush *UGG Lenny Robe (wearing size small) will be an excellent cocoon for the cold fall mornings to come.

The *UGG Lenny Robe  is a veritable cocoon and it comes in an array of colors.

Leather Jacket, Jeans, and Block Heels

If you’re going to splurge on one piece during the sale, the *All Saints Balfern Leather Jacket: is a must. The leather is buttery soft and the zipper and belt details are intricate and thoughtful without being overdone. I recommend sizing up 1-2 sizes; I’m generally a 4/6 and the 8 fit perfectly. So, I styled the jacket with the IeTS Frans Monogram Baby Tee (in a medium…looks so much more expensive than it is) and the Rag + Bone Alex Jeans (wearing a 27 and they’re just a touch oversized on me, which is what I wanted) which have a straight leg 90s feel that’s just right for the season. Also, I finished this look with the brilliantly easy to wear Schutz Olly Block Heel in Platina, which is a gold for all seasons.

Trousers, Bralette, and Loafers

Finally, I love these WAYF Trousers (wearing a size small, similar options HERE and HERE). They’re relaxed and classic and work well with the True Body V-Neck Bralette (SO comfortable), the *All Saints Balfern Leather Jacket and these fresh Sarto by Franco Sarto Putty Loafers (run TTS, wearing a size 7).

Here are the pieces that (1) I already own and love or (2) are still on my radar as the sale progresses:

In the images throughout, I am wearing the super creamy and blendable *Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer (this really delivers a velvety airbrushed finish), Trish McEvoy Long Wear Lip Liner Barely Nude (an intensely creamy deep pinky nude with gorgeous lasting power) and the Trish McEvoy Easy Nude 3, which has stunning peachy nude color payoff.

The red look look is generated via the *Rosso Valentino Refillable Lipstick. (shade 22A…swatches of 217A, 22R, 219A and 111A below). Rich, hydrating and refillable, this formula is pure luxury for the lips.

In terms of beauty deals for the the sale, now is the perfect time to stock up on *NeuLash and *NeuBrow sets (fortifies and encourages growth), a jumbo size *St.Tropez Jumbo Self Tan Express Mousse (effortless and effective for a rapid sunless tan), the *PMD Pro Clean Rose Quartz Facial Cleansing Device (I keep mine in the shower…it deep cleans without irritation) and the *GHD Platinum+1-Inch Styler (truly the gold standard of hair straighteners…I’ve used the same one for 7+ years).
