Since I was a little girl, late July has always been the most wonderful time of the year… for one event only… The Nordstrom Sale. Ever since I can remember, my mom and dad packed my sister and I in the car in the WEEEE hours of the morning to drive to Nordstrom and wait outside in line for the opening at 7:00 am. A lot has changed since then but it is still my FAVORITE day of the year!
This is the day Nordstrom puts all of its brand new fall arrivals on sale! (The anniversary sale is special because it is generally the opposite of how sales work… They usually go backwards so when a retailer is trying to get rid of old merchandise they discount it to move it out the door and make room for new stuff) After a few weeks, the prices on these pieces go back up! Nordstrom works with some major brands to provide different items for major sale – including, Kendra Scott, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Joie, Rag & Bone, Stuart Weitzman, and Tory Burch. Here are my TOP 10 favorite purchases from the #NSale this year!
1 & 2 – Athleisure: I was OBSESSED with this bright pink Nike pullover from the minute I saw it. It is super light weight and would be perfect for early spring and all of the Fall. These are also pleather leggings that actually have conturing and shaping properties so they can easily be worn with a sweater and boots! (Nike Run Fast Pull over – $34 & Spanx Leggings $65)
3 – Accessories: Scarves, hats and long flowing layers are a staple of Fall. I feel like hats have been a must purchase for the past few years now! I was so PUMPED to see this navy one to add to my collection! (Rag & Bone Wool Fedora – $130)
4 & 5 – Fall Attire: This flannel maxi can be worn as a dress or open with a tunic and skinny jeans. When I saw it in the store and in the catalogue I was not very excited, but it is adorable in person and the pockets are an added bonus! (not to mention so comfy!) Nordstrom got its start on shoes and their selection of booties this year is out of this world! It was hard for me to even begin to pick, but I fell in love with this pair! (Treasure&Bond Plaid Maxi – $60 & Lucky Brand Bootie – $90)
6 – Laid back dresses: This lace up striped dress will be the most perfect transition piece from late summer into Fall! Wedges in September booties and a leather jacket in October. Everything about it is so trendy! (Wayf Lace Up Shirt Dress – $45)
7 – Work Dresses: I am always on the prowl for great work pieces… The minute I saw this dress I swooned! The fabric in person is beautiful and the fit is so chic! This will be perfect with black pumps! (Alice + Olivia Katt Caftan Dress – $266)
8 & 9 – The basics: Jeans and Tee’s… Everything you need for Fall! This t-shirt is less than $20 and comes in a ton of colors. It is perfect for layering and a super flattering cut. The jeans selection at the Nordstrom Sale is ALWAYS large. I have been a HUGE fan of J brand jeans for about 5 years now and I fell in love with this pair in the store! They are actually perfect! (J Brand 811 Ankle Skinny Jeans – $125 & BP Long Sleeve Tunic Tee – $18)
10 – This Rain coat: This might be my favorite thing I purchased from the sale! It is Pendleton (which is is in Eastern Oregon… I drove through it last week). And honestly the most hipster chic thing in the world! I cannot WAIT to wear it! (Pendleton Hooded Rain Coat – $177)
Have fun at the sale you all! I wish you the best of luck getting the things you are looking for! I know stuff sells out FAST!
