Nordstrom Sale Wish List: Athletic Wear Edition

It's that time again - the annual Nordy sale. It's the sale where some of the best selling, tried-and-true favorites go on sale, and some at a very deep discount! Over the next week, I am going to be sharing my favorite Nordstrom sale items ranging from athletic wear to beauty products.

The details: If you are a Nordstrom card holder, you can have access as early as August 4th for select members or August 13th for all cardmembers. If you're like me and do not have a Nordy card, you'll have access starting August 19th. You will see a lot of bloggers push you to become a cardholder to get this early access, but I will never do that here. I do not use credit cards and don't believe going into debt over a clothing/accessory sale. So, with that said... let's get started!

Athletic Wear Sale Items

I'm going to start with my favorite items because if you don't purchase anything else from this sale, these are a must! The ON Cloudflow Running Shoe is on major sale - ya'll, I have NEVER seen these sneaks on sale. I bought my first pair this summer and quickly bought another one. They are Swiss made and as cliche as it sounds, feel like you're walking/running on little puffballs of clouds. They have really changed my running game and I've never had pain or any discomfort - even on my longest runs! They usually retail for $139.95 and are on sale for $83.90!

There's not just one pair of ON shoes for sale, but TWO. These Cloud X are my favorite pair of shoes for running errands and training clients, but they can also crossover for HIIT workouts, runs, a strength training session! They usually retail for $139.95 and are on sale for $99.90

Easy, Breezy Tanks

Honestly, you can't go wrong with summer tanks anytime because you will always wear need tanks and this is a great time to snag some great ones on sale! I'm a little picky about my workout tops - I don't like them to be too long so they don't hang down during workouts and get tangled in equipment or in my way. That's why my two favorite Nordy sale picks are slightly cropped!

Can you guys tell my favorite color right now is the eye popping chartreuse? How cute would this Sweaty Beatty cropped tank look with the ON shoes?! I love that the tank is barely cropped in the front and a little longer in the back. This tank retails for $48, but is on sale for $32.90

This cute Free People tank is meant to be a little more loose and flowy -

perfect for a hot yoga session or a long run! This tank usually retails for $58, but is on sale for $37.90.

Legs for Days

Leggings are usually a hard sell for me - they have to be high quality, don't ride down, and keep me feeling good from coaching to running to lounging! These are my top 3 picks from the Nordstrom sale for legging must haves.

Aside from coming in this gorgeous steele blue called "Beetle Blue", these Sweaty Beatty leggings are high rise and have stellar reviews from people who have purchased them. I am really excited about getting a pair of these and breaking them in! One of the things I love about the high shine leggings is they are great transition pieces from daytime to evening - you can toss on a cute oversized crop sweater and sandals and easily make this a drinks on the patio look. They normally retail for $94, but are on sale for $59.90.

I hope ya'll aren't surprised this is another pair of high waisted leggings - high waisted is life! I have these Alo High Waist Moto Leggings in Gray, but I am loving this deep blue Midnight color. They are soft and comfortable - they don't have the most compression so I love wearing these to coach/train and for workouts like yoga and Lagree! They have mesh panels to help keep you cool while the moto design gives these leggings a bit of an edge - they're one of my most complimented pairs of leggings I own. They normally retail for $114, but are on sale $75.90.

Oh, guess what - another pair of high waisted leggings!! These Alo Airlift High Waist Leggings are a versatile pair of high waiters as you can fold over the top to make them more of a mid-rise fit. The Limestone color is a perfect shade for fall and the leggings have a "second-skin fit feature smooth flatlock seams" which is flattering to all shapes. Their close fit makes them a perfect option for more high intensity work, cycling, or hot yoga! They normally retail for $118 and are on sale for $78.90.

Okay, ya'll! That concludes my favorite athletic wear items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! I hope you find some great deals or maybe try a brand you haven't gotten to try before. When you shop with me using my links, I will receive a small commission and know that I greatly appreciate it! I wanted to pick things I truly love or like and items that will not break the bank while still being high quality and fashionable as we navigate new ways to workout!
