Happy Thursday, everyone! I am sure you all have heard by now that the Nordstrom Anniversary (Early Access) Sale starts today! Unlike most sales, it is a time to invest in pieces for the upcoming season as opposed to items from the current season going on sale. It is the perfect time to get ready and excited for fall, even though fall is still a few months away. A lot of the items I grab during this sale are items I can also use year-round, making this sale a good investment!
Early Access starts today and goes until the 21st where then it opens up to the public. To gain access to the sale early you need to be a card holder, but you can easily sign up today and start shopping. I opted for the debit card option instead of the credit card option. For me, I felt like I had more control over my account and didn’t have to worry about opening up (yet another) credit card and everything works the same way (down to earning the Nordstrom Notes)!
As the pieces I ordered arrive, I will be styling and sharing those with you as well, so make sure to check back in! You can also peek at my #NSALE tab on my site to easily see what I have my eye on (see photo below)!
Now, let’s get into a few of my picks shall we? If you have any questions about sizing, etc. feel free to shoot me a DM, leave a comment or send an e-mail!
The 2 favorite (faux) leather leggings I own and love that are on sale and under $100 are:
Over the knee boots are such a staple for fall. They easily can dress up or down any look and really bring your outfit together. This pair and this pair (obsessed!) are splurge worthy (but such a classic) and currently $250 – $300 off the original price and available in black, camel and two shades of grey. (I just tossed the dark grey pair into my cart because I kick myself each year for not doing so).
If looking for a dupe to this designer pair mentioned above, these over the knee boots hit the mark and are only $86 (available in black and taupe)! And here is my pick for a price point a little bit higher ($150), another great classic available in three colors.
Let’s chat classic camel coats shall we?! Literally one of my favorite and most versatile pieces in my closet. 100% view this piece as a wardrobe staple and I have a few at different price-points. No need to spend a fortune on one (loving the length and color of this one just under $110), but also a great choice to invest in if you happen to do so. The one in the photo above is one of my favorites and was only $110! Here are my picks for:
Who doesn’t love a good leather jacket to toss on with a tee and denim or over a dress?! I tend to gravitate towards the “moto jacket” look and have a few favorites to share that are all on sale. One is a splurge and the rest are a more affordable price point such as this one. If wondering what my ALL TIME favorite faux leather moto jacket is, this is my go-to brand for so many pieces and their jacket looks like real leather, has the perfect shape and is currently $65!!
I am a sucker for cozy cardigans year round! They are one of my favorite things to travel in because I am constantly going back and forth between being hot and cold. This brand makes the softest, most comfortable ones around (worn above) and just came out with a new line of 4 beautiful neutral shades for under $80!
A runner up option that is currently $65 is this cardigan which was super popular last year due to how soft the material is and is back this year in 3 new colors!
Whenever a good sale is happening I love the challenge of rounding up a few items that are totally budget friendly and a steal. This tunic is one of them, I own it in a few colors (as I am sure you have all seen) and it is currently $27! Literally the best sale find, works year round and will remain a closet staple for the years to come.
You all also seem to love these everyday earrings (that I quite literally wear, every day). They are part of the NSale, available in a few sizes (this is the size I have) as well as metal tones.
I’ve been waiting for these champagne tiered earrings to come out to share them with you guys! The color is beautiful for fall and a statement earring always adds a punch to any look. Also, I can’t believe this bracelet is on sale! I recently just got it in the rose gold and had our wedding date engraved on it. I love the adjustable closure which allows it to easily fit any wrist size.
A trend that I hope sticks around forever! The bell sleeve adds a fun detail to your typical top and to be honest are just fun to wear!
