Nordstrom Anniversary Sale



This outfit features a few Nordstrom favorites from this AND last year’s Anniversary Sale! You might remember these ankle boots from last year – I bought them in two colors. I loved the pointed toe for a flattering, leg-elongating look! The ankle height is also perfect for tucking in my favorite skinny jeans. They’re not part of the sale this year, but these ankle boots are still available and fully in stock! I’m wearing the Cloud Suede color. It’s a gorgeous cool-toned neutral! They fit true to size, and although the heel is over 3 inches they are very comfortable and wearable. Now let’s get to what’s actually in the sale this year…

One item I must mention from this outfit is this Vince cashmere sweater. Vince creates a crewneck cashmere sweater every year for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I ALWAYS buy it! They are such soft, high-quality basics that look great solo or under any kind of coat or jacket. I truly cannot recommend these sweaters enough, and am always shocked that they stay in stock throughout the sale. Sure, they’re a little more expensive than the other sweaters available in the #NSALE, but they are 100% worth every penny. I now have five of them and have zero regrets. During the sale you can get the sweater for $179.90, but it’ll go back up to $295 on August 9th! I purchased the sweater in both the Cream (wearing that one here) and the Caribou colors this year. The Caribou hue is practically identical in color to the coat, while the Cream has sort of a heathered look that picks up the cooler tone in the coat. I also ordered this pair of boots in Brown, which is also nearly identical to the color of the coat and Caribou sweater! Clearly I had a color scheme in mind when ordering this year. I ended up returning those boots and keeping the Brown Caramel color instead, as I realized I already have a similar pair of boots in a cooler brown/grey color.

Last but not least, this coat was one of the first things I added to my wish list when perusing the sale preview earlier this month! It’s from one of Nordstrom’s in-house labels, Halogen. They make incredible wardrobe staples that are wearable from the office to the weekend, and are very reasonably priced! This coat is made of super soft wool and features a double-breasted front with roomy pockets. I love how lightweight this coat is! It makes the coat both flexible (read: not stiff) and is a perfect choice if you live somewhere warm like Texas. It doesn’t get really cold until late December here, so this weight of coat is ideal. It comes in three colors, but this Brown Shiitake hue looked the most useful to me! It reads cooler in color in person than it does online, which was actually perfect given the other things I purchased in the sale (plus these boots from last year).
