The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is an event in my house. When I was a kid, we would drive five hours to the nearest Nordstrom and use the sale to do our school shopping. This year, I used it to do a little pre-shopping for fall and to pick up some essentials.
First, let’s start with the essentials. The sale is a great time to stock up on tights. I like the Spanx ‘Tight End’ Tights ($18, also in plus-size). And speaking of undergarments, I also stocked up on Shimera seamless wide-strap tanks and spaghetti strap tanks. My friend T also has me addicted to these Zella ‘Live In’ Leggings ($34).
I also used the sale to replenish my supply of Creme de Corps Body Lotion with the 1L bottle ($75). And I stocked up on my favorite Supergoop sunscreen ($38 for 3).
Second, now for the fun stuff…the clothes.
I bought this Andean alpaca coat and I love it. It’s the softest coat ever and the shape is really unique. Additionally, the foldable collar buttons at the neck to help keep the chill out. I also love this car coat with studded sleeves ($45). And if you’re looking for basics, this London Fog trench ($110) and this Patagonia button up jacket ($93) are great for fall.
This raglan cashmere sweater caught my eye; it’s a great basic. I also thought this long cardigan from Rubbish ($38) looked cozy. The Theory blouse above caught my eye, I like the sleek look. And I fell hard for this Vince silk blouse ($233) and this Lafayette 148 tank ($110) that comes in several colors.
Did you shop the sale? Any pieces that you bought or want to buy?
