It was already the best week of the year, but it’s now even better because card members can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. In case you don’t know, the Anniversary Sale is an event. It’s when Nordstrom puts new items on sale at great prices. These aren’t summer dresses and shorts. These are items you’ll be coveting in the fall – but you can buy them now for a discount.
I’m pretty sure I looked at every item in the sale – and bought quite a few for myself. But here’s what I think are some of the best items:
It’s obvious that leather moto jackets are going to be a big trend for fall, as there are a TON of options out there. Since they are a basic item everyone should have, it’s okay to spend a little more. I love the one above, but it’s super expensive. This is another – much cheaper – option.
Flare jeans are coming back in style. As a teenager in the late 90s, these were my go-to style of jeans. I was so sad when they were no longer fashionable and probably wore them longer than I should have. I hated skinny jeans and therefore refused to wear jeans at all for years. Just when I finally caved and bought a pair, flares came back. I’m not complaining though, because that just means I can wear the pair of skinny jeans I love AND my beloved flares. There are several great styles out there (both on sale and not), but I love this version.
Crossbody bags are another trend right now. I have too many bags, so couldn’t justify a purchase of one, but I would have bought this one, if I was in the market for a bag. It would have been a toss-up between the black or the ivory, but the black version will hide stains better!
I found this sweater in the junior’s section, but there’s no reason a fully grown adult can’t wear it. It’s a classic style – and only $24.90!
I seriously love this necklace. (Note: The picture doesn’t do it justice. There is a white part at the bottom that’s hard to see with the background. If you look at the other colors available, you’ll get a better sense of what it looks like.) I didn’t buy it, but highly suspect I will before the sale ends.
While I think everyone should have a basic black wool coat to wear with everything, it’s also fun to have a fantastic statement coat. In the winter, you’ll wear a coat more than any other item, so why not have one that stands out? I absolutely love this color. I’m hoping it is as beautiful in person!
Although I’m generally not a fan of gold jewelry, I love this cuff. It’s just so different and really makes a statement.
I really want a pair of Rag & Bone booties, so was excited to see that a pair was included in the sale. While they are a good deal, I’m going to hold out to see if I can get a pair on TheRealReal (they sell for under $200!).
