best of #nsale // designer collections


My goal with this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was to buy quality staples I could wear year after year! I’ve done a pretty good job the last few years, snagging pieces I’m still wearing – like a buttery-soft leather jacket (two years ago), the most beautiful beige coat (last year), a cozy neutral cashmere cardigan (two years ago), solid everyday camis (last year), Hanky Panky thongs (every year!!!), etc. With that said, I’ve also made a few mistakes – I’ve purchased pieces I loved in the moment, but didn’t end up wearing much. My goal this year was to pick up less of those items, and I think I’ve done that! Aside from this one pair of trendy boots under $100, all of the pieces I got are classic, comfortable, solid and neutral.

One item I’m really excited about that I haven’t shared on the blog yet is this stylish navy shirtdress by Lafayette 148! As you guys know, I LOVE a shirtdress. I have quite a few in my wardrobe, but most of them are white! While super versatile, they don’t seem very appropriate for the fall season. When I saw this tie-waist navy shirtdress in the Anniversary Sale I figured it would be a nice alternative to white and a good, classic shade I can wear now or in the fall/winter season! Plus, it gives off serious Meghan Markle vibes… I couldn’t resist! I absolutely love the flattering wrap/tie waist. It’s a lightweight, comfortable fabric too. This dress is in the Designer Collections section of the sale, so it’s more of an investment – but in my opinion, a timeless style like this is worth every penny!

If you’re looking for more quality pieces like this from the Designer Collections, don’t miss these:

  • This short sleeve cashmere sweater is the perfect creamy color for fall/winter!
  • On the hunt for a work-appropriate sleeveless top? This one features a ruffle-neck detail and comes in three gorgeous, everyday neutral hues.
  • Gold, black and cream? Yes, please to this Missoni scarf!
  • I have a similar style blouse to this one and get compliments all the time! Such a beautiful basic.
  • Need some new sunglasses? This style and this style are both so chic! Also love this Givenchy pair
  • If you love Brunello Cucinelli, don’t miss this striped shirt. It’s got the look, but a fraction of the price. The subtle chain detail is luxe and so on point!
