    Promising review: “These are BY FAR my favorite pajamas I have ever owned. They are so comfortable, I don't ever want to get out of them. I am 5"6" 135lbs and I purchased a size small. They fit perfectly. I will be buying another pair” —Efaldborg

    Price: $29.90 (originally $49; available in three colors and sizes XS-XL)

    2. A pair of summer sweat shorts so you can really lean into this trend. If finding a pair of shorts that's the exact right fit sounds like an absolute nightmare to you, these might be the perfect baggy yet well-constructed option this summer.

    Price: $49.90 (originally $75; available in sizes similar to US 0-24 and two colors)

    3. A tie-dye, long sleeve T-shirt so you can look the part of summery chic. It's a super cute and of the moment trend that you'll be seeing all over your mood board this summer.

    Promising review: “Ordered the charcoal and the cotton candy colors, and like them both. Size down unless you want a really baggy fit. I have them in a bunch of colors, and wear them at home and out and about. Comfy, versatile and stylish. Cold wash and hang dry. Looks like new.” —JRRB

    Price: $38.90 (originally $58; available in three colors and sizes XS-XL)

    4. An energizing face wash that's perfect for those of us who are major face sweaters (hello, it me). If this full liter of face wash doesn't help combat chronic pimples from sweating from morning til night, I don't know what will!

    Promising review: “Since I was a teenager I've tried everything from prescription acne cream to diet changes to help alleviate my skin problems. On a whim, I decided to try this men's face wash and I cannot be happier about the results. My skin cleared up within the first week of use. When I see/feel a new pimple emerging, I suds up and leave the wash on for 2 minutes and it helps diminish the pimple right away. I've also noticed that it helps reduce redness and inflammation after I get my eyebrows threaded—so I'm sure it will help with other areas where hair removal might cause irritation.” —mendozaster

    Price: $39 (originally $59)

    5. A pair of seamless bike shorts for the sporty person who wants to be ready to take on anything. It's perfect for short bike rides around your neighborhood, for longer stretches running errands, or just pairing with a cute cropped top for a fun exercise-chic look.

    Promising review: “Bought these along with several other brands and went back to buy more during the Anniversary Sale - these are a winner! So soft, so comfortable, and great for lounging. They fit great, are not see thru and don’t roll or fold. They’re not for compression but if you’re looking for comfortable bike shorts at a good price, quality, and length, you will love these. I typically size down in FP to an XS and the XS/S in these were perfect.” —NicNic85

    Price: $29.90 (originally $48; available in two sizes and four colors)

    6. An Adidas slide sandal because nothing says summer better than slides. It's ideal for the no-muss no-fuss dresser who just wants to be as comfy as possible and ready to run out the door at a second's notice.

    Promising review: “They feel so soft and comfortable with memory foam. I wear a size 9 but got an 8 and heel doesn't hang over at all.” —trlawa

    Price: $24.90 (originally $35; available in sizes 5-11)

    7. A pair of cozy Nike shorts so you can enjoy some downtime in the most comfortable way possible. They're perfect if you enjoy lounging around, especially when the weather is too hot to actually enjoy being outside.


    Price: $29.90 (available in two colors and sizes XS-M)

    8. A square neck crop tank that's truly one of my favorite cuts of the moment. It'll absorb all the sweat that comes from walking around all day, exercising, or frankly, just standing around in the summer heat.

    Promising review: “The Beyond Yoga Spacedye items are extremely soft and great for workouts!” —EsmeraldaK

    Price: $45.90 (originally $74; available in two colors and sizes XS-XL)

    9. A daisy-print mule for people who appreciate a casual approach to their style, but still want to add their personal touch. It'll look so cute if you wear it during a picnic in the park or a fun lunch date with friends.

    Promising review: “These shoes are amazing! I have wide feet and struggle to find something comfy and pretty. These shoes look so elegant, feel light, leather is real and soft, with perfect shape and height for work. if you have tiny feet they might feel wide for you.” —Classymakeup

    Price: $39.90 (originally $59.95; available in four colors and sizes 5.5-10)

    10. A stretch cotton camisole because there's nothing better than getting back to the basics. We could all use a few simple camis to throw on under overshirts, or even rock on their own when the weather hits above 90.

    Promising review: “I bought two of these. Navy Peacock & Pink. They are beautiful. I love that they are longer vs other similar camisoles. I tried on the navy blue and then wore it rest of the day.” —turkeyandfish

    Price: $9.90 (originally $15; available in five colors and sizes 1X-3X)

    11. A pair of square sunglasses that will shield your eyes from the bright summer sun and keep you feeling super put-together. When you're trying to wear as little as possible to keep from overheating, accessories can make or break your outfit.

    Promising review: “Love these. It’s difficult for me to find sunglasses for my narrow face but these are the ones! Nice and dark as well!” —Wiwtiowa

    Price: $99.90 (originally $161)

    12. An electric aromatherapy diffuser because summer means lovely fragrant flowers and an ocean breeze — but if you live in a city, it can also mean hot trash rotting in the street. If you're dealing with the latter, this might help the situation a bit and add to a general feeling of serenity that should occupy your house.

    Promising review: “It is worth the price because this is quality! The decorative top is ceramic. Easy to use and looks like a piece of art! Couldn’t be happier. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” —AMH123455778

    Price: $55.90 (originally $69.99)

    13. A square neck puff sleeve minidress because who said you can't go from day to night in the same look? Let's face it, during the summer, it's easy to be on the go from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, so it helps to have an outfit that can take you through the whole day. This is that outfit!

    Price: $84.90 (originally $139.50; available in sizes XXS-XL)

    14. A pair of Dansko clogs so you can have some cute-yet-comfy footwear to bust out when you're on your way to meet a friend, headed to a concert, or engaging in any other summer fun. These universally beloved clogs are having a serious moment and if you aren't much of a formal dresser, they're a great way to give your casual outfit a more dressed-up vibe.

    Promising review: “I suffer from chronic plantar fasciitis due to years of dancing en pointe. My podiatrist recommended Dansko clogs as THE shoe to support my feet and help them heal. I’ve been patiently waiting for these to go on sale. Thank you, Nordstrom Anniversary sale! They feel like I’m walking on clouds. Very cushiony but still supportive in the arch. I wear a size 6 and purchased 36s. They’re a little loose, but I think they’ll be perfect with socks. I’m so happy to have these shoes!” —Surfcitykitty

    Price: $89.90 (originally $139.95 (available in sizes 5.5-11.5)

    15. A sweatshirt that's perfect for actually sweating in. It's super absorbent and has your back if your back tends to be, shall we say, damper than most.

    Promising review: “This top is so soft and really moves with you, I could definitely see myself wearing this to yoga or before/after & (maybe during) a weightlifting workout. It's pretty short and sits above the belly button. My favorite part is the big sleeves they add a lovely feminine touch to the distressed lounge look. So stylish!” —CyclingQueen

    Price: $42.90 (originally $68; available in XS-L and two colors)

    16. An asymmetrical satin skirt so you can flounce through the summer months. It's a super cute way to add a feminine touch to any outfit without feeling super exposed.

    Price: $39.90 (originally $69; available in two colors and sizes XXS-XXL)

    17. A knit cropped vest for the person who likes a cute little button-up moment. It comes in this fabulous eye-catching orange and will look so good paired with a little tennis skirt or baggy shorts.

    Price: $22.90 (originally $35; available in sizes XXS-XL and two colors)

    18. A face cleansing brush that's the perfect way to feel like you're really taking care of your skin. In the summer, when makeup practically melts off with your first step out the door, taking care of our skin feels more important than ever. And this is a great way to show it a little love.

    Promising review: “Of all the facial brushes I have tried, this one is my favorite. I was a devout Clarisonic user for years but I was tired of constantly replacing brush heads. This cleans as well as a Clarisonic, without irritating my sensitive skin. I have noticed my acne clearing up and less blackheads. Additionally, it feels amazing against my face and the rose quartz is fabulous for massaging in serums and moisturizers. I have noticed an improvement in both my products absorption and my skins' health since I began using this. Thank you PMD and Nordstrom!” —Anikeu

    Price: $118

    19. A pair of Prada sunglasses because variety is key. Big sunglasses, little ones, we love them all. Why not add some new shapes into your wardrobe this summer? These are great because their large frames will protect the delicate skin around your eyes from the sun, too.

    Price: $181.90 (originally $272)

    20. A pair of New Balance running shoes that will make your outside activities feel way better. They're super supportive and will help you get where you need to go this summer.

    Promising review: “These are the best walking shoes I have ever owned. I had shoes for $200 OC and Adidas, both gave me blisters. These were wonderful right out of the box! No blisters, feet weren’t aching after walking for 4 miles. I’m usually a 9 but got a 9.5, fit is great.” —MajaBean

    Price: $79.90 (originally $119; available in sizes 5-12)
