If you’re looking for a midweek pick-me-up, a little shopping could certainly lift your spirits—especially since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 just officially opened to the public. The best part about this shopping event is that it’s filled with newly released items available for a fraction of the price from now until August 8. That means, if you want a brand new La Ligne sweater or Tory Burch boots before the fall, you’ll have to move quickly. Over here at Vogue, we certainly aren’t wasting any time stocking up on investment-worthy pieces to get us through the season.

After all, our editors enjoy a smile-inducing deal just as much as anyone else! Read on to find out exactly what my colleagues are eyeing this year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021.

I love baby-sized products as they’re ideal for packing on my carry-on—I do my best to never check luggage! This set by La Mer is everything I need (face wash, toner, oil, and La Mer’s famed cream) to get glowing skin while I’m on holiday, and you really can’t beat the price.

I’m taking full advantage of this sale and stocking up on my favorite tried and trues like this classic La Ligne sweater and my holy grail moisturizer from Kiehl’s.

As a Southern girl living in the city, I want to make sure I’m prepared for cold, snowy, rainy days ahead. So I’m stocking up on these cool Ganni boots and this chunky Proenza sweater.

I love thick, full, bushy brows, but alas, I wasn’t born with them. RevitaBrow has been my go-to as far as growing back what I do have after years of plucking. This combo pack will mean I can work on my lashes, too.

It’s hard to think about leather boots when it’s 87 degrees, but by the time fall rolls around, the best ones are always sold out. This stacked-heel pair by Tory Burch has the height I’m looking for—tall, but walkable!—with comfy, slip-proof lug soles.

It may not be the most glamorous pick, but I’ve been trying to up my daily H20 intake, so I am thrilled this 40-ounce Swell bottle is on sale!

I’ve just moved into my Brooklyn apartment with my partner and it’s safe to say we love it here. Because we live in the city there is no expectation of a garden space. The smart garden is the perfect indoor-outdoor pick-me-up to help us feel like our space is more of a home and less of just another building.

It’s peak summer! This year, more than ever, I’m still stocking up on summery staples for an upcoming holiday and an increasingly social calendar. My eye has been caught by a few dresses and tops that can be worn seamlessly from day-to-night, like this delicately embroidered Tory Burch dress.

I’ve had my eye on La Ligne’s signature striped sweaters for a while, and this V-neck style pullover is perfect for summer days as well as the transitional season as we head into fall.

Even though I haven’t even been on my summer holiday yet, I’m already looking ahead to what I want to wear this fall. I have my eye on Nanushka’s ribbed polo knit—it’s right up my alley having both a minimalist look and soft silhouette. Meanwhile, Proenza Schouler’s polished yet stylish contrast stitch dress is the ideal return to work staple—at 70% off no less.

I’ve become quite committed to outdoor yoga this summer. In my opinion, it is the best combination of restorative exercise possible. My wintertime yoga leggings don’t quite cut it in the humid late July days, so I’m excited to add a few more sport shorts to my repertoire.

These fierce but cushy slip-ons should add some r-o-a-r to the work-from-home routine.

I have five weddings (and a few bridal showers in between!) to attend in September. Since it will be such a busy month, I’m eyeing dresses that can easily transition from summer to fall with double-duty sandals I can take from the ceremony to the reception.

To know me is to know that I take my sun care very seriously—and to go on vacation with me is to have access to a treasure trove of SPF tubes and bottles, in varying textures and protection levels, for face and for body. (I prefer to check a bag so I can have all options—full size—at my disposal). This summer, my beach essentials also include L’Huile de Leonor Greyl. A nourishing mix of organic coconut, jojoba, sunflower seed, and sesame seed oil, the pre-shampoo treatment offers deep hydration for parched strands and protection from the sun and sea. I like to apply it to towel-dried hair following a dip in the ocean to add a sleek finish to beach hair (and a soft texture to post-beach-shower hair).
