The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here, and that means you can basically just take all of our money. Actually, we take that back—not all of our money. Luckil—y for us, the deals this year are impressive enough to allow for a cart full of stuff that doesn't require taking out a second mortgage. We scrolled through thousands of items in several categories to find the best products under 35 bucks, when it comes to athleisure, beauty buys, and cute wardrobe staples for summer and fall. So if you're trying to stick to a budget but still want to treat yourself, we've got you.

And while you're here, if you're looking for amazing wellness deals our Well+Good editors can't get enough of, or the beauty products our commerce editor will be shopping herself, you've come to the right place (or in other words: go ahead and click those links). The Anniversary Sale is going from July 28 to August 8, but the good stuff is going fast.


nike shorts
Nike Tempo Dri-FIT Running Shorts — $23.00

Running shorts are a must during the warmer months, and Nike makes a pair you can rely on. These sweat-wicking shorts feature a non-annoying leg inset made with an air-y mesh that allow for ventilation, and convenient interior pockets so you can carry essentials if you want.

sweaty betty sports bra
Stamina Longline Sports Bra — $29.00

If you’re looking for a sports bra with a bit more coverage, we love just about anything Sweaty Betty makes, including their longline sports bra, which is has wide straps for comfort and is constructed of sweat-wicking fabric so you never feel like you’re drenched. Designed for medium-impact activity, this bra is ideal for running and cardio, and weight training. The only downside is that it only supports up to a C cup.

zella rib tank
Zella Favorite Rib Tank — $25.00

If you’re in the market for a trusty tank, go ahead and snag this one. Available in five colors (red, yellow, black, green, light grey), this top is soft and stretchy, and just as great for workouts as it is for lounging. It’s made with moisture-wicking material so you stay dry. We like that its comprised of 95 percent Tencel modal, which is a sustainable, eco-friendly fiber (the other 5 percent is spandex, which gives it stretch).

BP comfy joggers
BP Comfy Joggers — $25.00

We’re team joggers here, so the more in our closet, the merrier. These soft and stretchy high rise joggers come in four colors and patterns (grey, clouds, tie-dye, and classic black) and, most importantly, have pockets.

nike socks
Nike 3-Pack No-Show Socks — $10.00

If there’s one thing certain in life, it’s that one can ever own enough socks, especially if you need a pair of no-show, no-slip socks that work well under pressure. These are a customer-favorite, with reviewers saying these socks truly will not slip—they’re designed with a silicone heel pad—and that they last forever (if you don’t lose them in the wash, obvs).

adidas leggings
Adidas Sportswear Leggings — $30.00

Adidas understands comfort, so if you’re looking for a pair of sporty leggings that’ll take you from yoga class to the couch, we highly recommend these (also, it’s hard to beat that price). Made of a cotton-polyester blend, these leggings are sturdy and long-lasting. Bonus: They have a secret pocket, so 50 gold stars.


Fresh Rose Petal-Soft Lip Cream Set — $25.00

If your lips need some TLC, look no further than Fresh’s iconic Rose Petal-Soft Lip Cream, which you get alongside a travel-sized Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment balm in this set. Both products lock in moisture up to 24 hours and smell fantastic.

Stila Stay All Day® Eyeliner Set (2-Pack) — $32.00

This jet black liquid eyeliner comes with an easy-to-use tip so you can draw on the perfectly defined cat eye every single time. It’ll truly stay on all day, and there’s enough ink to last you two to three months (even if you wear eyeliner on the regular).

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve — $10.50

Kiehl’s best-selling, maximum strength formula is loved by beauty community and beyond, since it quickly repairs even the most parched hands. The salve is designed to create a barrier-like layer which protects it from further damage.

Nars Afterglow Mini Lip Balm Duo — $22.00

Nars’ Afterglow lip balms give you the perfect pop of color as well as hydration. Throw these in your bag for when your lip color needs a bit of reviving. Both colors are pretty and look good on everyone. Deep Throat (ya, we know) is a sheer watermelon pink, and Fast Lane is a sheer mauve.


Madewell Clipdot Ruffle Top — $29.90

Tuck it in, wear it with a skirt or your favorite pair of jeans, this versatile top is just what your closet needs. With a cute clipdot effect, the blouse has a nice texture to it, and we love details like the high smocked neckline and ruffles.

faux leather leggings
Nordstrom Faux Leather Leggings — $34.90

Give your leggings a glow-up. These faux leather leggings dress up and zest up just about any outfit without sacrificing on comfort. Made of non-constricting material that stretches, these won’t make you feel sweaty or stiff.

wubby jacket
Thread & Supply Wubby Jacket — $32.00

It might be lava hot out now, but you’ll thank future you when you’re cuddled up in this cozy jacket come late fall. Available in Frosted Charcoal, Brown Animal, Camo, and Ivory, it’s made of polyester and features a warm jersey lining.

Open Edit Slit Sweater Skirt — $30.00

There are few things more classy than a high-slit skirt, and we’re snagging multiple pairs of this one. Open Edit’s sweater skirt is made with a cozy and high-quality cotton blend that stretches and hugs all the right places.

mock neck
BP Ribbed Mock Neck Crop Top — $16.00

A mock neck is an easy way to elevate any outfit, and BP makes one that’s comfortable, soft, and sturdy. Wear this crop with your go-to pair of high waisted jeans, or pair it with a skirt. You can’t really go wrong.


L'or de Seraphine Ceramic Jar Candle — $20.00

Not only does this candle smell like the sweetest summer fruit salad (orange, goji berry, and mango), but it leaves behind a gorgeous ceramic vessel you can use as decor. Burn time is about 80 hours, so you’ve got a while to sniff in that fresh fragrance.

hydro flask
Hydro Flask 24-Ounce Standard Mouth Bottle — $26.00

The hype behind Hydro Flask is warranted. If you want a beverage to stay cold all day long (even if it tags along with you on a warm-weather day trip), get yourself a Hydro Flask. Its TempShield insulation can keep liquids chilled up to 24 hours, and it’s BPA and phthalate-free, so you’ll never get that weird plastic-y aftertaste.

oven mitts
Food 52 Silicone Oven Mitt Set — $32.00

Quit grabbing your casseroles and pies from the oven with a spare kitchen towel, and get yourself some sturdy mitts. These silicone mitts by Food 52 in “Maple” are as pretty as they are functional: They’re safe to handle heat up to 650 degrees, and you can wash them in the dishwasher. Plus, we like that they extend up to your wrists so more of your arm is protected that way.

Nordstrom Bliss Plush Throw — $25.00

There is no such thing as “too many throws.” This perfectly-sized throw by Nordstrom is cozy, soft, and machine washer-friendly. We’re adding several to our carts (they come in a handful of colors, so why not?).
