I know its everywhere ya’ll but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is pretty great. I definitely do want to share with you all my top picks, which are all items that if you buy now will last forever and always work together.
Some key things:
Right now it is only open to card holders, early access is the 13th to 20th and then it opens to the non card holders until the 6th of August. Here is the deal though, I love clothing, I love shopping but you know what I don’t like? Debt. So let me preface this with don’t feel pressured to buy something just because it is on sale, or open a new credit card just because you want access now.
Luckily pretty much all my friends have a card so with a lil help from them I am shopping the sale and rounding up what I would buy (because I actually don’t have a Nordstrom card). I really only buy now if there is a hole in my closet and I need that item or if I have gone through and sold items that don’t bring me joy anymore and I don’t actually wear.
All in all, here are the essentials from the sale plus I added in a couple items from their general clearance items. Yes I poured through over 100 pages but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy looking at it all.
Seriously though, all the mules! I absolutely can not get enough, I really wear them everywhere. I am adding the studded Dolce Vita babes in white to my collection (these are actually just on sale, not a part of the anni sale). So many cute booties too! I wear booties year round with dresses, jeans or leggings! I also added in my fav Nike sneakers and a few slides to help you get through the rest of the Summer.
For a Floridian I do own more sweaters than anyone, however, I have been getting rid of some I don’t wear to make room for more. I loved my cold shoulder blush sweater last year so I am adding in the BP black one and then the bottom middle Nordstrom sweater with the tie details at the wrist. I do love the striped distressed one which I will continue closely watching.
I am pretty sure I have outerwear covered in my own wardrobe but I wanted to share what my essentials are. This Ivy Park raincoat is a total must have, it is on clearance ( not N Sale) and well it’s always raining. I love that it is clear! Thank Blank NYC leather jacket is AMAZING, if I didn’t already have my Tripp NYC one I would get this and it is only $65! A camel coat is a must have in anyones wardrobe and I wear my black blazer with everything, it polishes up a simple t-shirt and jeans outfit or you can go total business with it. The last item is a good ol’ cardigan, with ruffle bell like sleeves that I am totally in-love with! I haven’t bought it yet, because I really don’t NEED it but I am watching it closely.
Really I just want that “ Gym and Tonic” tee because ya know. But these are all classic yet modern staples that can be styled any way you want, and with anything.
I am obsessed with sweater dresses! So comfy and in the fall you can rock them with just some booties, mules or heels and then in Winter add on some leggings and you are good to go.
I guess you can call me a bag lady, but it is true, I do love them. The velvet corssbodys will be so cute for holiday gatherings! I love my black backpack for travel and walking around so I always recommend for every girl to have it in her repertoire. Peep that ombre catch all / carry all though, if I didn’t already have two I would definitely add in this babe.
I hope I saved you some time by narrowing down some of the most essential pieces.
