UPDATED Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Activewear Picks!

I posted this earlier last week at the beginning of the presale, but now that the sale is open to non cardholders, and now that many things have sold out, I’ve updated my post with some new items in place of the old! Many of these items were also just shipped to me a few days ago so I didn’t want to add them until I had tried them on and decided to keep them!

I will wholeheartedly admit I am 100% not the queen of fashion, and that is the whole reason that up to this point, I didn’t do the fashion side of this account. I spend 90% of my time in workout clothes and if you know me, you know that is not one bit exaggerated. So much so that my mom says she wouldn’t recognize me in anything else. The other 10% of the time, I’m in “teacher wear”, and it’s kind of hard to be super trendy when I spend half my day on the floor with 5 year olds. However, I refuse to be left out of all this Nordstrom madness, and while most of you are probably shopping for your new fall wardrobe, I am shopping for both that and my new fall workout wardrobe! I decided to dedicate a post to everything I just got from the presale so that you’d have an easier time sifting through the hundreds of amazing items on sale right now!

For those of you who don’t know, Nordstrom does an anniversary sale each year in July. Most stores do their sales at the end of the season, however Nordstrom actually does their major sale on fall and winter clothes at the end of summer! Meaning you can save tons of money on fall and winter clothes by shopping early.

Side note – many people talk about how quickly these items sell out during the sale, and while many do, they’re ALWAYS restocking. So don’t worry if something sells out – just keep checking back!

As you may or may not know, our posts are now shopable through the “LikeToKnowIt” app, which you can download from the app store. This app allows you to screenshot or “like” our Instagram posts, and have the direct links sent to you email inbox, making shopping so much more convenient and quick! So be sure to download it if you haven’t already, that way you can shop straight from our Instagram, eliminating the extra step of having to come to the blog!

However, because you’re reading this, you’re obviously already on the blog, meaning all you have to do is click each linked title to shop the item! Many of these items will sell out quickly, so if you see something you like, definitely go ahead and get it! Nordstrom always does free shipping and free returns, so err on the side of caution, and grab it before it’s sold out, then return it later if you need to! I’ve included pictures of all the items I picked up and tried on in store, the rest of my order is being shipped to my house as we speak, so I’ll update with pictures as I get them!



Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

These are the perfect leggings for fall/winter. I don’t typically wear full length leggings in the summer, but when it gets chillier, these will for sure be my go-to’s! I love the high waist, they’re SO soft, and they’re tight enough to keep everything in place without suffocating you. I already own a pair of these, but they’re close to half of what I originally paid! These are $35 – they’re a little long, but they run true to size!

Zella ‘Hatha’ High Waist Crop Leggings

Again, LOVE the high waist on these crops, and I die for the mesh detailing on the back! I own far too much black, so I’m excited to add a little bit of grey to my workout uniform (they only had black in store – but I ordered the grey)! Trying to refrain from ordering the blush color too … For only $33, this is a total steal! They also come in black if that’s more your style. These run true to size!


Zella ‘Keep it Cool’ Crop Leggings

These are a staple in my closet. I wear these both in and out of the gym because they’re SO comfy. They’re soft, stretchy, and so breathable. These are the ones I linked on Instagram last week in the teal color! This is the perfect non-high waisted crop, and who doesn’t need a perfect pair of plain black crops?! These are $31 and come in both red and blue in addition to the black! These run true to size!

Zella Live In Slim Fit Leggings

For those of you who don’t love the high waist trend, these are perfect for fall/winter and they’re the exact same price as the crops, $33! They’re a slim fit though, so if you’re in between sizes, or you don’t like things super tight, I would size up!

Zella Knock Out High Waist Leggings

These are perfect for the gym, but the mesh detailing gives them more of an athleisure look, meaning I can wear them everywhere and people aren’t judging me for wearing workout clothes … right? These also come in the cutest pink color! Definitely a steal for $42 and they run true to size. These are only left in a large – HURRY!


Zella Moonlight High Waist Midi Leggings

What I love about these leggings is that they’re a “midi” style, which means they should hit you mid calf instead of closer to the knee like a crop, or closer to your ankle like a full length legging. I am a huge fan of the longer fit because it helps give the allusion that my legs aren’t two feet long like my long long long torso sometimes makes them feel! Another steal at $38! These crops run true to size.


top 6

Zella Pace Tank

This top is one of those go-with-anything workout tanks. It’s simple, basic, and it comes in 4 colors, so you’re sure to find something to match any pair of crops, shorts, leggings, you name it. I love a more relaxed and flowy fit in the summer when it’s so hot, which makes this the perfect top for only $24! This tank runs true to size.


Adidas Originals Trefoil Logo Relaxed Fit Tank

I love this tank with all my heart! It’s the perfect workout tank, but it also double as the perfect athleisure staple! It’s so soft, it’s black (my favorite), and can be worn as shown, or knotted in the front/back if you size up! And, its only $21 – doesn’t get much better than that!


Climawear Perf Perfection Singlet

I have not seen this on one other roundup of sale items, and I am so surprised! I loved this top from the moment I tried it on. It’s so stretchy, it’s breathable, and it feels like you’re wearing your softest jammie shirt to the gym. It’s only $24 and I would compare the quality of the fabric to some of my Lulu tanks. This is a steal! Runs true to size.


Nike Breath Training TankNike Breath Training Tank

I am SO shocked this is not sold out yet. This tank is one of my absolute favorites. For those of you who tend to be like me when it comes to tank tops, and love a loose and breathable fit, this is the tank for you! The material is extremely thin which is perfect for the summer and warmer fall days and I love the burnout detail. Definitely worth every penny for only $33!


Nike Pro Cooling Sports Bra

Okay – here’s the deal with the sports bra. I was totally hoping to find a sports bra I loved this year, and while I found this one and loved it, there’s a caveat. My only issue with this sports bra is that I would not recommend it for anyone bigger than a C cup. I am a D, and the large was suffocating me, so I would definitely say to size up regardless of your cup size. While it didn’t fit me right, I highly recommend it and have seen it recommended by many other smaller chested bloggers. The material is great, the quality is obviously great because it’s Nike, and the thin straps make it perfect for any workout top! It’s a steal for $33!


Zella Constellation Crop

These crops are extremely similar to the ‘Hatha’ high waist crop leggings I posted above. They’re the same fit and the same style, so if you love those, you’ll love these! I love the high waist, as well as the mesh in the back, but above all else … this pattern! I love any pop of color or pattern a crop adds to an otherwise boring athleisure look.


Zella Autumn High Waist Moto Ankle Leggings

I think these leggings are the cutest leggings ever. I love the fact that they can be worn with anything gym wise, but even more so that they can transition into a casual/athleisure look with a quick top change! I love the olive green color, but these come in black as well. These fit true to size!

Zella Mesh Inset Training Tee

Maybe I’m weird, but I am always on the hunt for a good workout tee. Sometimes I’m just not in the mood for a tight fitting tank! I honestly did not expect to love the fit of this top as much as I did! It has such a feminine and flattering fit, and the mesh makes it so airy and breathable. Only $31 and it comes in two other colors! This ran a little small for me so I sized up!


Zella Power Racerback Tank

Again, I told y’all I am not usually one for super tight fitting tanks. They’re not always the most comfortable, and for nights when I’m running outside or just doing light cardio at the gym, this kind of tank is perfection because of how lightweight it is. And for only $24, I may or may not have gotten it in two colors. This tank runs true to size.



Zella Outta Town Hoodie

Truthfully, I’ve been looking for a sweatshirt to be able to throw on over a tank or a tee when I go to the gym in the chillier months, for YEARS now. I always just a jacket or something light, but I’ve never had a cute and comfy hoodie that could go over anything. This will without a doubt be my go-to if this Kansas heat ever goes away! It’s one of the more expensive items in this post, but for something you can wear all the time, I definitely think it’s worth $49! This runs true to size.

Free Focus Flyknit 2 Training Shoe

I need not one more pair of tennis shoes, and my mom is going to kill me when she reads this, but I couldn’t say no to this color combo. I am a sucker for aqua and grey. Grey goes with everything and aqua is the perfect pop of color to add to any workout look! They come in black too! Aside form the color, I’ve also tried these on and they feel like you’re walking on clouds. I can’t think of a workout they wouldn’t be great for! Get them quick, they’re only $89 and they’ve already been sold out and restocked once! These ran a little big for me so I ordered a half size down.


Nike Juvenate SE Sneaker

You guys are probably sick of seeing these shoes by now, seeing as though I wear them in 75% of my Insta stories and pictures! But they go with EVERYTHING and they were worth every penny I spent on them (which was a lot more than $70!). I have had mine since Christmas and for as much as I’ve worn them, they still look brand new. Wish they came in more colors because they’re one of my favorites! These run true to size.

That wraps it up for all of my favorite active wear items this year! I’m working on a post with all of the non-active wear items I picked up in case any of you are actually interested in what I wear when I’m not at the gym! Check back early this week for the post! Happy shopping girls! Please message me or leave comments if you have questions on sizing or anything regarding the sale!
