The summer sales are in full swing, and there are so many incredible finds sitting in them. One of the biggest events of the season is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which has pieces marked down across every category. The pre-sale begins on July 9 for all Nordstrom cardmembers, and the public sale launches on July 15.

Before the sale even kicked off, I combed through a preview of every single item to narrow in on the best finds. Ahead, shop my picks, including the exact fashion, beauty, and home pieces that I would shop first—from the bodywash that has a permanent place in my shower to investment-worthy cookware I'm eyeing to the Celine sunglasses I wear more than any other pair in my closet.
