The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be super overwhelming! As I mentioned earlier this week in my shopping tips and tricks, having a plan before shopping is essential. For me, it’s looking for the best closet staples and basics. Yes there are a lot of cute and on-trend items on sale, but I try not to let myself get too wrapped up in these items. Instead, my top buys at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 are classic tops, jackets/sweaters and denim.
It’s still really hot here in Houston, and we won’t see any sort of relief for months. I’ve curated a list of items that can be worn now and later. Take the on-trend off the shoulder plaid top. Adorable for a date night now, paired with white jeans, and later paired with leggings and riding boots.
I also love how Parisian chic the striped drop waist top is. It comes in blue too! Again, something that can be worn now, with a pair of white chino shorts or later in the year with dark skinny denim.
I said this last year and I’ll say it again. If you’re going to splurge, go for the items that are classic staples. In need of a new coat for the fall/winter months ahead? I cannot highly recommend enough a classic Barbour jacket. I’ve had mine for a few years now, and it’s a tried and true staple in my closet. I wear it all the time in the cooler months and will continue for years to come. My dad has one too! See past posts where I style it, here and here.
When it comes to this year’s top buys at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 in denim, I’m all about the AG Jeans. I snagged a pair last year, and I wore them so much. Definitely got my money’s worth! So this year, I’ve got my eye on yet another pair – the raw hem ankle jeans. I’ve also heard great things about Good American denim, so I want to check out their sale pieces too.
You can never go wrong with grabbing a classic handbag or pair of shoes. I tend to opt for neutrals during this sale, things that I can build a wardrobe and closet around! Enter the everyday Longchamp tote, they’re the best and so lightweight – rarely do you ever find them on sale, FYI. A Tory Burch bag is a classic, especially in the pebbled leather. I’m also liking this matching wallet.
In terms of shoes, grab the Tory boots while you can. These babies always fly off the shelves every single year. I really like the classic and chic, very equestrian-esque, style of this year’s Tory Boot. If you don’t like the logo, then I recommend these Aquatalia boots (I have a pair by the brand, they’re all waterproof, and so well made!) or this pair of Stuart Weitzman boots, totally worth the splurge!
For me, I am absolutely loving the beauty offerings this year! Besides the above, other top buys at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 include this Repair + Renew skin collection, this trio of sunscreen (it’s one of my favorites!), a duo of two toner pad jars (I’ve just started using and love them, look at the reviews, too, so good!), one of my favorite buys year after year, the Jo Malone collection set and this bronze & blush glow set.
Let me know what you’re grabbing in the comments below, would love to hear! I’ll be heading in store to check out more of the sale in-person later this morning. Tune into my Instagram stories, as I’ll be sharing a try-on session of items I’m loving and honest reviews of the fit, feel, fabrication, etc. Then I can truly attest to what are my top buys at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017
I’ll be back too in the coming days with more tailored sale posts, including styled outfits… stay tuned. Happy shopping!
