NSALE 2021: Laura’s Wish List (An Edgy-Chic Fall Capsule)

Friends. Whew! I am stoked for Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021!! This new preview they started last year is so amazing for getting a game plan together.

During #NSale time, I typically look for amazing jacketscozy sweaters, cool sneakers (P448 sneaks are my most-worn shoes), rad boots, and high-end pieces…oh, and jeans, of course! It’s so amazing they put the new fall stuff on sale before fall. It’s why we’re all gushing around here over it. The best.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: An Edgy-Chic Fall Capsule Wardrobe For The Pacific Northwest Gal

This year specifically, I’m excited about this jacket from Bernardo, this Zadig & Voltaire sweater, and these FRAME chelsea boots. Stick to what you love when shopping this sale! I mostly try to find pieces that are very me…edgy, graphic prints and tees; cozy neutral sweaters; really great boots; and one statement coat…and maybe only a couple slightly more trendy pieces I can work in. Otherwise, it’s too overwhelming, amiright? That’s also why we are here to help! We seriously edit our picks down into hopefully very helpful collections, complete with reviews of what we’ve tried over the years. Let’s get into it!

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots…that’s what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest, and honestly, that is my sweet spot for clothing anyway. I am a fall gal. It’s the best season, and the MOST fun for layering and putting together cool, chic looks. Get me out of this summer heat into the cool of fall, and I’m a happy, happy gal.

1. AllSaints Balfern Moto Jacket

Hi. Welcome to the Allsaints fan-girl post heh…these leather jackets are my favorites…Every. Year. I might have two of this exact jacket already and it’s gonna be REAL hard for me to not also keep this beautiful sage-y green for my collection. Lordy. Gorg.


2. Bernardo Faux Fur Jacket

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

This amazingly rad and very soft-looking jacket is another top pick for me. I will live in it. I love, love it zipped all the way up like this for a super cozy yet modern feel.


3. Theory Turtleneck Dress

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

Gorgeous. This dress is one of those forever pieces I was mentioning at the top. Classic, so beautifully made (Theory is fab) and chic but still interesting. For this gal who is super-picky about dresses, this was my top pick from the ones in the Nordstrom Sale I saw.


4. AllSaints Lock Roll Sweater

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

This is one of my very top picks for this year. Last year’s AllSaints funnel neck sweater (still part of the sale!) was GORG, just a little too tunic-length on me. The asymmetrical hem on this will be perfection. I seriously want all four colors and cannot wait to try this on.


5. Zadig & Voltaire Rock N Roll Sweater

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

I mean, we’ve well-established that I’m an AllSaints fan-girl but Zadig & Voltaire are my other favorite cool-girl brand for realz. You may have seen me sporting (heh, like everyday) their Je Ne Sais Quoi tee. Well, this sweater just screams ‘me’ as well. Stoked…stoked.


6. AllSaints Cuffed Tee

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

Ooh, love the cut of this tee. So flattering on the arms. So good.


7. AllSaints Carabiner Bracelet

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

I always forget accessories y’all, but this bracelet…. This I will remember to add. to. cart.


8. BDG Fisherman Half Zip

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

This is a cute unexpected find from Urban Outfitters’ brand BDG. I love the sweatshirt shape but in a sweater. It’s also a great price point. Adorable.


9. Frye Sacha Chelsea Boot

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

These Frye boots are SUCH a great go-to and a forever closet piece. I adore Frye. I have these in another color (I especially love their super-cushiony sole) and am so happy to see the black in the #NSale!



10. P448 Snakeskin Skate High Tops

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

P448s are my forever favorite sneakers, and if you know me, you probably know that by now. They are the perfect height (not too high) SUPER-cushiony and great with just about everything. Yes, I may need a THIRD pair of these for my closet. Heh.


11. FRAME Le Lexington Chelsea Boot

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

These chelsea boots….Are beautiful. Shana has an older pair of FRAME boots, I think, in a taupe or camel, and she adores them. I love this shape so much for those mod-London-inspired vibes I am always going for. I have yet to find my perfect white boot and I think these will be it.


12. Nike Sportswear Essential Fleece Sweats

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

Ok, so I adore the moment sweatpants have had recently, and these are no exception. I think these Nike sweats might be loooong, but I’m going to try to rock that slouchy look. And…Nike.


13. Vince Funnel Neck Chunky Sweater

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

Hi Chunky Funnel Neck Sweater. Just give me all the oversized cozy sweaters for all of Fall 2021 and forever. K thx.


14. Kurt Geiger Tote

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

Ooooh yay! I have the bright blue tote from last year, but this gorgeous purpley-red shade might even be better…more versatile. This leather is SO soft, and this bag is a dream to carry.


15. Lafayette Waxed Denim Jeans

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

It wouldn’t be a roundup for the Pacific Northwest without some amazing coated denim. This brand is new to me, but these get good reviews. I’m so excited to try them and excited they are in a straight-leg cut!


16. AllSaints Lou V Stripe Sweater

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

Fuzzy AND black and white stripes…OK. I think this would be the coziest loungewear EVAH. But of course also adorable for wearing with jeans and boots.


A Few Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites I Have (& Love)

PAIGE Mayslie Jogger

joggers

These are some of my very favorite pants. They are soft, comfy, and flattering — the pants I wear when jeans are just too tight or not comfy but I don’t want loungewear. LOVE. TTS. Wearing a 28.

P448 High-Tops

Sweaters, jackets, coated denim, plenty of boots...that's what we need up here in the Pacific Northwest & honestly, that's my sweet spot for clothing anyway.

sneakers

P448 high tops are some of my very most worn shoes. They have the most cushioned insole of any shoe I’ve tried…and that’s a lot of shoes, y’all. They run TTS if not just slightly large. I wear a US 8 and wear a 38 in these.

jacket

You’ve heard me rave about these leather jackets for years now. I bought my second one last year during the sale, and no, that’s not too many haha. I may need a third. Heh. That gorgeous gray-green color in the sale this year! TTS. I wear a US 6 in these, and they’re perfectly comfortably fitted over med/light sweaters and sweatshirts. They stretch just beautifully with a few wears and are SO soft.

Bag

This tote was a total surprise find last year and I’ve LOVED it. So so soft, easy to carry. Will fit a ton but gorgeous even with a few items in it. Best tote purse I have.
