Gang, here’s my edit on the Nordstrom sale. It’s a little different from my sister’s – I prefer the Juniors department (they seriously need to change the name of that one) – but the biggest difference is in cost. I found a few splurge-worthy items, but juuuust a few. My edit is predominately cozy, affordable cardigans, leggings, and boots.
Leggings & Boots
First of all, this top. Be sure to get one of these Free People bralettes too.
Next, we need to talk about my new favorite tall boot. I know Shana has bad-mouthed tall boots in the past (haha) but I still like them because where I live (snow, cold) ankle booties aren’t always realistic. These boots are by UGG and have both memory foam and their signature fluff on the footbed.
Lastly, if you haven’t gotten a pair of these Zella leggings, this is the time. They’re the best leggings ever.
These are slightly scary denim leggings. They have a panel on top that’s made of stretchy soft material so they kind of hold you in without being super constricting or uncomfortable. They also come in a faux leather which I ordered the second I tried these babies on. I’ll keep you posted.
I’m jealous of Shana’s Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots (drool), but these are a great affordable alternative. They actually stay up and are made of comfy stretchy fabric . . . and they don’t have a heel. This sweater is super soft and perfect to throw on over leggings, jeans, even dresses.
I’m a sucker for a soft cardigan and this one is long enough to cover my butt, has pockets and is $32 . . . score.
We’re obsessed with these booties . . . the little v on the ankle makes them leg-lengthening which is tough to find in an ankle boot.
BP Cardigan (inventory is constantly changing!)
AG Jeans (destroyed is sold out, but the black high rise is super flattering)
Vince Camuto Booties (love the leg-lengthening little v on these)
This is my splurge outfit. The cashmere wrap is so ridiculously soft and luxurious (and would make an awesome nursing cover) and the shoes . . . are perfection. (har har) I haven’t actually decided if I can keep the shoes but the BAG. I’ve been lusting over Shana’s and once I realized how ridiculously comfortable it is . . . this is SO worth the investment. Hands-free, people. Yesssssss.
This jacket is sadly sold out, but it’s a perfect layering piece for fall. Like I said, inventory is constantly changing so grab this one if you can . . . it’s lower in the back which makes it perfect to layer over leggings and cardigans and is crazy soft. (It also comes in navy).
Damn You, Nordstrom!! (Cold-Shoulder Tops & Cool Shoes)
These pieces sold out quickly, but some are being restocked. Last year I noticed that colors and sizes would come in and out of stock the entire sale period, so keep checking back!
A cold-shoulder turtleneck is perfect for when you want a little sexy but it’s COLD out. (They’d be perfect with faux leather leggings for holiday parties.) These sandals . . . LOVE. If you can find them at your local Nordstrom they are awesome.
Trouve cold-shoulder tunic top (almost sold out, available in other colors)
Hinge Sandals (sold out in most colors & sizes)
AG jeans (almost sold out)
I’m loving colored boots . . . last year I bought the wine-colored ones (at the Nordstrom sale) and this year I’m all about the blue. It adds a fun little unexpected twist to “normal” outfits.
Floral Nikes that are super comfortable and look good with jeans. (No socks required!)
Nike Sneakers (LOVE the rose pattern!)
These boots. I can’t decide if I like these bluer Nine West booties or would prefer these darker navy ones, but they’re both a fun alternative to the black booties.
AG black jeans (sold out)
These are my favorite boots ever. How they can have a heel and be so ridiculously comfortable is beyond me, but they are. You need a pair of these Sorels if you live in a place that gets any sort of snow and they come in fun patterns.
