Shana’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

ONE: Sorel Brex Waterproof Boots in Chalk/Peach – I’ve been wearing these guys all over Park City as my ‘night out’ shoes and they’re great. Walkable, waterproof, and unexpectedly fun with denim. I keep getting complements on them. They also run a litle less narrow than the regular Sorel Brex boots (thanks to the top zipper).

TWO: Beyond Yoga – there’s a bunch of Beyond Yoga on sale, but I especially love their square necklines, like this bra (and matching leggings, here). I also really love Beyond Yoga’s one-shoulder top. It stays up, and looks seriously chic on.

Laura’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

Half-zip sweater, waterproof knee boots, on sale at Nordstrom

Sweater (S) | Boots (TTS)

ONE: There’s honestly nothing that compares to thick ribbed half-zip sweaters in my opinion and this Nordstrom brand sweater is no exception–especially because it’s 40% off! The blueberry color is just gorgeous and I love the oversized fit of and perfect cut of this. Comes in ivory, too. 

TWO: I keep raving about these waterproof Blondo Knee Boots for good reason…they’re awesome. They aren’t too tight in the calves, have a super cushiony insole, are taller than other knee boots so they hit at a cool spot making them look like high end brands I’ve eyed (I’m talking about Isabel Marant) And right now they’re 34% off in both black and brown. TTS and so freaking good.

Kat’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

Trench coat, Thea sneakers, on sale at Nordstrom

Jacket (2x) | Sneakers (TTS)

ONE: I originally bought this gorgeous trench during the anniversary sale, but ended up returning it because it was far too big for me in the initial size I purchased. I held off on selecting a smaller size, but continued thinking about how much I loved it. And after several months, I finally bought it in the smaller size and am so in love with it! It’s absolute perfection and the interior lining reminds me of Burberry. LOVE it! It’s on sale and available in plus size and straight size

TWO: I still stand by wearing Thea sneakers for travel. I wore them all throughout my time in Switzerland, and they were one of the few sneakers that were actually comfortable for all day wear while also giving me all the cool girl vibes. Right now there are quite a few different styles of P448 sneakers that are on sale, but the Thea’s are my personal favorite.

Julieta’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

Frame henley top, Frame jeans, on sale at Nordstrom

Top (XS) | Jeans (27)

ONE: Frame Henley Top (XS)Henley tops are like my tees, and I love it when they look more sophisticated. The buttons along the neckline, material and color make this one a special one. 

TWO: Frame Barrel Jeans (27) – Finally took the tags of these jeans. They’re not my usual straight, wide-leg or flares but I love the relaxed vibe on days I just want that. For now the easiest formula for my body and style is with a snug sweater or tee to balance the bagginess and sneakers or cowboy boots. Oh! And just tried it with the Alo puffer jacket (not on sale) and it looks goood!

Bev’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

Doc Marten boots, Our Place Always Pan, on sale at Nordstrom

   Doc Martens | Always Pan 

ONE: I have a 10 minute walk from the parking garage to my office and during the winter months, these Doc Marten boots with shearling keep my feet nice and warm. Never in a million years would I have ever imagined myself in Docs, but here we are. I also own the Chelsea Doc Marten boots (also on sale). Both pairs were fairly easy to break in. 

TWO: The Always mini pan comes in handy in our house on the nights our boys request something different at dinner time. The size is a plus when it comes to storage since we live in a small house built in the 1930s with not too much storage.

Anne’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

Free People sweater, Good American button-up shirt, on sale at Nordstrom

Sweater (M) | Shirt (2)

ONE: This cozy, chunky Free People sweater comes in a bunch of colors and hits me right at the waist. I like to layer this if it’s extra frigid outside or wear it by itself during shoulder seasons.

TWO: I love the clean and crisp design of this white Good American button-up shirt. The cut of some button-ups just doesn’t flatter my curves, but this one hits at the waist and has a polished-looking, reinforced hem that runs straight across, so there’s no need to tuck the shirt into jeans or trousers.

Jess’ Top Nordstrom Sale Picks

Free People sweaters, on sale at Nordstrom

Sweater (M), Jeans (29, Run Small) | Sweater (M) 

ONE: Free People’s Orion A-Line Tunic V-neck Sweater – I have to say, I love this Orion A-Line sweater by Free People even more than I thought I would. It gives the most amazing flowy-swishy vibes of all my Free People sweaters. I especially love that it’s cut on the side, for an extra breeziness effect, and is longer in the back than in the front, for superior bum coverage. My Levi Jeans are also on sale and are some of my most worn Levi’s ever. 

TWO: Free People’s Alli V-Neck – This FP sweater became one of my most worn sweaters this fall and continues to be a constant in my closest this winter. First, I LOVE the color. The ‘Placid Blue’ color is bright and vibrant in person and it looks so flattering on! Also, the chunky knit is nice and thick. so it keeps me nice and warm. The extended v-neck and slouchy shoulders add to its overall oversized fit.

  1. Laura thank you for the Blondo Wylde Waterproof Pointed Toe Boot recommendation! I just got them in the mail and they are gorgeous. And that price is a ridiculous steal. I also want to say I appreciated (and connect with) your candor about perimenopause and all the rest, in your other post.
