I’m sure you’ve been hearing all about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; one of the biggest sales of the year. Early access for Nordstrom Cardholders began on July 13th and is now going to open to the public tomorrow. Now is the best time to stock up on all of your fall essentials since they will all be on sale. By August 7th, all of the new fall inventory will be back to full price! Since, no one wants to pay full price for anything (because why would we?!), you don’t want to miss out on this chance! Nordstrom will be doing a huge restock tomorrow for the first day of the public sale.
The best things to stock up on during the sale?
- Fall closet staples- Neutral colored cardigans, chunky sweaters, long sleeved tees
- Booties- There are TONS of great booties available on sale!
- Jackets- From suede to faux leather, there are tons of cute and reasonably priced options that are totally versatile. It’s important to stock up on things you will get a lot of use out of!
- Investment Denim- Spending a lot on a pair of jeans may seem crazy but investing in a great, comfortable pair that will last you a long time is well worth it. I have jeans in my closet that have lasted me 5 years and you would have no idea they are that old!
I wanted to share with you a bunch of pieces I tried on as well as my favorite purchases from the sale.
This hooded cardigan was one of my favorites that I tried on. It’s really soft and cozy. I can’t wait to wear it in the fall with a cami and booties. It also comes in Olive green, which is one of my favorite neutrals and looked great on as well. I’m wearing an XS here! It runs a little big.
Leith Hooded Cardigan– On sale for $52.90
Another great option if you’re looking for a cardigan that comes in multiple colors. I’m wearing an XS small here. I’m only 5’0 and usually need to wear an XS in longer cardigans. I ended up getting a similar version that wasn’t ribbed as well.
BP Rib Knit Cardigan– On sale for $31.90
I love wrap sweaters. This sweater gave me all the ballerina vibes. I couldn’t find this online but as soon as it’s stocked I will make sure to share!
This was a great basic sweater for Fall. I sized down for this one and am wearing and XS. This comes in a couple of other colors and is a great staple piece that can be styled numerous ways. I really love it in pink & gray as well! Plus, you can’t beat that price.
BP V Neck Pullover– On sale for $24.90
I’m not going to lie; I’ve been eyeing this moto jacket since last season. I went back and forth on it for months and I knew when I saw it as part of the sale that I had to finally pull the trigger. A versatile, good quality suede jacket for only $125? It’s a must have for fall and it’s worth the investment because it won’t go out of style.
BP Suede Moto Jacket– On sale for $125.90
First I’ll start with this Topshop ruffle sleeved jacket. I purchased this in white for the spring and ended up getting a lot of use out of it. The fit was SO flattering. When I saw it in navy for fall, I couldn’t help picking it up to see if I liked it just as much. The verdict? Yes. I’m wearing a size 4 here. I sized up since Topshop sizes usually run smaller. I loved pairing it with this BP Silk Cami (reduced to $22) as well. I’m wearing a size XS in the cami. I couldn’t find either of these online but as soon as they are restocked I will make sure to share. Next, were these jeans made by AG. These were the #1 best selling product in last year’s Nordstrom Sale and now I get why. I sized up to 26 because I am in between sizes normally and the fit is perfect. I’ve officially been converted to AG jeans. All my other jeans feel like sandpaper on my legs in comparison! These are super soft. The best part is that they were almost 50% off!
AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Jean– On sale for $149.90
I loved the fit of this lace romper and the plunging neckline. It’s flattering without showing too much. The lace detailing makes it pretty and feminine. This isn’t exactly “fall” appropriate for New York weather but what’s so bad about throwing an extra piece that can actually be worn now? This romper also comes in mustard and white. It runs true to size so I am wearing a small here.
Socialite Plunging Lace Romper– On sale for $49.90
Overall, I’d say my two favorite purchases are the BlankNYC moto jacket & and the AG jeans because I know I will get so much use out of them and they will last me a long time. Those types of pieces are worth stocking up on early and the small investment. Your closet will thank you!
Here I chose to do a basic pairing of the moto jacket and jeans with a cream colored long sleeve v-neck and camel booties. My mind is already spinning with all of the different ways I can style this jacket. You will be sure to see a post on it later this fall! You will probably get sick of seeing it so much. I’m imagining combinations of silk camis, v-neck tees, and peep toed booties.
