Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Nordstrom’s anniverary sale is here and its one of the biggest sales of the year preparing us for the fall and winter seasons. This is when all of our fave fashions can be found at 50% off retail making it an “add to cart” kind of day—or week. If you’re like me, I buy a few things and then see other bloggers with more and decide to go back and purchase even more (sshhh—don’t tell the hubby—-of course I’ve had those booties and those jeans and that jumpsuit and that sweater since last year)!!! In the meantime, I’m patiently (well not really) waiting for the mailman to deliver my goodies!!!
So today I thought I would share my faves with you and the items I want and purchased already this year! Hopefully I bring you inspiration in my choices. Most of the items I am recommending are closet staples, items that can be worn multiple times in many different ways too—since I’m all about a good bargain!!
Let’s first talk about dresses and skirts. The midi dress seen below has pockets, is available in 2 beautiful colors and looks chic just as is or will be beautiful paired with a leather jacket or sweater for the cooler months! How beautiful is this lace midi? Just perfect for all seasons with a change of footwear! This one can easily be worn to a wedding or work when styled correctly, I love that, and at this price, it’s going to move fast! This shorter lace choker style dress would be perfect now as is, and then in fall/winter with tights, leather or suede jacket, and booties! I’m linking this lace slip dress. It too looks chic when paired with a moto jacket, or choose to layer a long sleeve tee or bodysuit underneath–again, great for all seasons. See that vibrant skirt below, its pleated and velvet, so of course I love it and I am sure you will too!!! Lastly I have included the faux suede button down skirt in classic black. This piece is stunning and looks great with a tee tucked into it for casual vibes, or you can take this to the office or a girls night out!! You’ll love it, I have one in burgandy.
Yeah, my fave purchases have got to be shoes, and you will not want to miss the ones I have linked. In all seriousness, the items in this sale sell out fast, so be quick so you don’t miss the deals. Here are my top shoe picks for fall with sale prices that won’t break the bank! The first ones are these great cut-outs, run, don’t walk to get these!! That second pair seen below have a fold down back that allows you to wear them mule style (um–hello, yes please, I’ll take them in each color—they come in an animal print color that is absolutely amazing)!! Feeling more sporty, I’ve got ya covered, the sneaks below are perfect for fall and this blue shade goes great with your skinny denim too! Oh, and those leopard mules, yeah, of course I had to include these, and those beautifully embroidered mules too— I mean come on, they are velvet!!! And then of course there are the embellished slides—who doesn’t need these in their life am I right??? And finally in the shoe category are these stunning over the knee beauties that you will want to wear all season long, or this tan color is also equally as chic—why not both?? Ok, I can’t help myself, just one more pair and I promise this is the last pair of shoes I link. These velvet floral boots are just gorgeous though, and at this price they won’t last long!!
Onto jackets, this one for sure will be a must have, I love that its suede and all the details are on point, you will love it too!! Ok, and I am buying this embroidered one right now as I write this, a bday gift to myself because 1). I get flutters just looking at it, and 2) It has embroidery, 3) Just LOOK at it!!!!! I’m moving on to faux fur now and this one here is so cozy, textured, and perfectly priced. How about a bomber jacket, this one is classic and can be dressed up or down!
One of the tops that make the cut is this fun tie detail sweater. I also really like this sweater with zipper detail on the side. Not only does it look good over skinny jeans, but it can be dressed down with leggings and sneakers too because of the longer length. It comes in soooo many colors too and its a great sale price. Next, I love this black cutout neck sweater, great price, great details, nuff said! OK—one look at this tie sleeve sweater and it was immediately added to my cart!! Just look at it, so pretty and super affordable too! I have linked this long sleeve cardigan with tie detail–perfect for layering and so comfy, it also comes in a pretty marbled color too! If you can’t tell, I’m a sucker for fun and unique details. I love the cut-out and tie detail of this last sweater. And—lastly, I had to include this faux suede vest. This piece will be your go-to in fall. Pair it with denim or over a dress and you will look fab!
Need new denim? I have found some great ones. Lets start with this embroidered pair! Next are these fringed/frayed hem pair. These are not part of the sale, but either way are a good price. I have these exact ones and I’ve worn them many times—I have the black pair too!! And since this is the season of raw hemlines, I have linked these too! I’ve linked one more pair of embroidered ones, these are skinny and high rise, so probably my fave style! Studded denim anyone? That final pair of denim I have shown have studs, are distressed, and a fringed hemline!! And finally, this post wouldn’t be complete until I linked a denim jacket. This one below is embroidered, distressed, and perfectly slouchy—my husband is not going to be happy with the credit card bill next month!! But hey, this sale only happens once a year!!! Enjoy ladies and as always, I love to read your comments and can’t wait to hear about what items you got this year! I hope I have inspired you with my personal choices! Remember to act fast and check back often as items to get restocked!!
