Yay! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially opens to the public today (about darn time)! Whether you’ve been patiently waiting to shop or you just want to snag a few last-minute deals, now is the time to do it!

Jeans, Jackets & Booties: 3 Ways To Upgrade Your Wardrobe With The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The first delivery of my massive #NSale order FINALLY arrived today, and I was like a kid on Christmas morning — SO excited to sort through all of my packages, try on everything, and round up my favorites to share with you guys. All I can say is, I was NOT disappointed with my first haul. (I think my fav has to be these Blondo Waterproof Hiker Boots…keep scrolling for pics!)

For this post, I zeroed in on my wardrobe staples that needed an update for fall: cool jeans, moto jackets and booties. I love basics with a cool edge — like distressed, vintage-looking denim and white leather booties. (How amazing are those?!)

Update Your Denim Wardrobe With These 3 Pairs

Do your jeans need an update? Maybe something that feels fresh? Me too. These are my top three from the sale…

1. rag & bone Maya High Waist Straight Leg

I’ve had my eye on these rag & bone jeans since the beginning of the #NSale — they were one of the first pieces I put on my wish list. I love the light wash, the cut, and the fact that they are different from any other jeans I have. Straight-leg denim is making a huge comeback lately and I am all about the laidback vibes. FYI, I found these jeans to run large. I bought a size 29 and will need to exchange them for a 28. 

It’s not denim BUT I’m in love with the Halogen Crewneck I’m wearing in the photos below. It paired so well with all my denim and it’s under $30!

2. Topshop Dad Jeans

I LOVE these jeans, just like the rest of the TME team (Laura & Cams tried them too). I originally sized up assuming they’d run small (Topshop usually does) but I could have taken my typical size 28 or 29. So order your usual size! These are just SO. COOL.

3. Madewell Cali High Waist Demi Boot Jeans

Honestly, I can’t believe I don’t already own these jeans! They are such a versatile style and also some of the most comfortable jeans I’ve ever put on my body. Go, Madewell, go!

The Moto Jackets That Made Me Swoon

I’m a longtime fan of [BLANKNYC] moto jackets and their fall 2020 line is nothing short of amazing.

1. BLANKNYC Vital Signs Suede Moto Jacket

I am such a big fan of BLANKNYC moto jackets. I already have this one in french taupe, but the dark grey option below can be worn with just about everything. I’m always looking to add new motos to my winter wardrobe because I wear them with everything — all fall and winter long. I love how they add a level of chicness and rock-er edginess to any outfit. They’re great over dresses for date night and also add some serious style to an everyday pair of jeans and tee.  I’m thinking I definitely need this one now.

2. BLANKNYC Good Vibes Faux Leather Moto Jacket

This is another one of my absolute favorite pieces I fell in love with at the beginning of the sale. I just love the color. The jacket is such a classic style (plus, that cool color) that you don’t find too often. Since I can never have too many moto jackets in my closet, this one will make a great addition to my wardrobe. Pair it with basically anything in your closet and you’re good to go. Definitely keeping this one.

The Best Booties

I need something chic and cool…that can still stand up to a Michigan winter!

1. Blondo Camila Waterproof Bootie

Blondo booties for life. Since discovering this brand in the sale this year, I’m never turning back. Laura was my inspo for trying these, and I’m so glad I did!

3. Blondo Helen Waterproof Hiker Boot

I warned you about the Blondo booties. I’m OBSESSED. Be prepared to see these A LOT from me. I’ve been wanting these boots for weeks now; stylish, functional, rugged and WATERPROOF. Perfect for those Michigan winters.

ps. The jeans I’m wearing below are Topshop and included in the sale — I’m just not sure I love them on me.

3. Sam Edelman Daruby Booties

Honestly, I didn’t expect to like these white booties as much as I do. In fact, I’ve thrown them on with just about every outfit I’ve put on and they do not disappoint.

  1. Hey Christa! Yeah, I do love them both but there are so many other shoes from the NSALE that I want too! I’m def. keeping the Helen waterproof hiking boots and I’m leaning towards returning the Camila booties because they are a little to snug on me!

  2. Ack! I love the Blondo Camilas, not sure how I missed them and now they are gone. Great find! And hey for everyone at TME, I know you are having a love affair with ripped jeans, but those of us moms who work (or at least one day will go back to the office) can’t really do that style…..
