It’s the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Which means…that I just spent 12 hours in Nordstrom yesterday, trying on allllll the things. My usual #dressingroomselfies nonsense finally hit the blog here (NEED COFFEE…), and our FULL list of favorites in each category (shoes, bags, jackets, sweaters, tops, jeans, dresses, activewear) is also published…but sometimes it’s just nice to have a small, simple list.
I’ll be maintaining this list of the top 15 as the sale goes on. As we learn more about our finds….some may get bumped. So check back! There’s also three long-lost favorites from sales past, that have – happily – been reissued for the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Think of these well-tested, well-loved pieces as our Hall of Famers.
NOTE: I’m throwing some sneak peeks of all new finds up on my Instagram, (@shanachristine)
Top Fifteen Things To Buy From The 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
TME Long-Lost Favorites Are BACK!!
These pieces are tried and tested – we’ve been wearing these all. year. long. Happily, these wardrobe workhorses have just been re-issued and are part of the Anniversary Sale!
I wore this thing all over Europe, I wear it on date nights, I wear it to school functions, I wear it momming. If I had to pick ONE piece I couldn’t live without….it might be this jacket. (And I have tons of emails from readers raving about it too.) . I first featured this jacket in our dressing room selfies post for the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
James Perse Sweatshirt Blazer (size 0)
I love this thing. Super flattering, the prettiest color (ignore the pic online – the color below is more true), and slight insulation.
The Vince sneaker booties are back!! They’re a little different, this time around – there’s a larger platform at the bottom – but STILL. These are some of my most-worn shoes. Primarily because they feel like sneakers, look like boots, and I can wear them with socks come winter (or bare feet when it’s warm).
