Favorite Looks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

by | Aug 7, 2020 | Sales, Style

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to Ambassador Level Cardholders!  I shared a large round up of My Nordstrom Sale Early Access Favorites on Tuesday and today I’m sharing My Favorite Looks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

It is a round up of a few style staples I bought at the sale and a few things that are similar to items I wear all the time so already had in my closet to show you the full looks.  I’m all about classic pieces and cozy separates.  I’ll also be sharing all of these looks on Instagram stories so you can see them in more detail.

I will be updating the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Favorites tab on my website menu bar.  You can shop the categories individually on these pages on my site: Coats and JacketsDressesDenimShoes and BootsSweaters and Tops, Handbags and AccessoriesBeauty Exclusives, Home and GiftsMen, and Active Wear.

Easy links to categories you’ll want to shop on Nordstrom.comDenimSweatersTopsDressesHandbags and AccessoriesBootsBeauty Coats and JacketsHome and TabletopActivewearMen’sand Kids.

Over the next several weeks I will share more of my favorites and alert you to the next days that shopping opens.

Cozy Everyday Looks 

Cashmere Sweater / White T / Denim / Suede Mules

I love cashmere for it’s lightweight warmth.  It is a great layer for fall transition as well.  I picked this cashmere sweater up in two colors.  I tried the rosy pink on first but had to add the neutral as well.  I’m headed to California to move my daughter so I know this will be coming with me.  It comes in several other colors including black, burgundy, and gray.  I’ve paired it with a simple white t and these super comfortable mules from the #Nsale.  They are a buttery soft nude suede and will be a go-to this fall.  They also come in black.

Cashmere Sweater / White T / Denim / Boots

Here is the sweater in Oatmeal styled with suede booties.  I ruined my suede boots last year and wanted this warm neutral.  They are a good heel height and very comfortable.  As it gets cooler, I’ll wear this great long sleeved T with this sweater and as a layer under other jackets.

The denim I have on in these photos is one of my favorite pair.  They are part of the #Nsale as well.  I’ve “hemmed” mine myself by cutting the hem.  I shared how I do this in this denim post.  Love the distressed hem trend and hope it never goes away!

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan / White T / Commando Faux Leggings / Camo Golden Goose (new version)

These Barefoot Dreams sweaters are now a staple in my closet. I never understood everyone’s love of the Barefoot Dreams cardigans before.  Honestly, if everyone has it, I typically avoid it.  But now, I get it.  Soft, cozy and feels like PJs.  Yes, please!   Like the sweater above, if I really like something, I tend to get more than one eventually.  I now have this in the oatmeal, charcoal and black…well, my oldest snagged by charcoal one from me last fall!

I have on the Commando faux leather leggings here.  I like these much better than the popular Spanx that everyone loves.  They hold you in but aren’t quite as tight.  They also don’t have a waist seam or side seam so they are a more sleek look as well.  Mine were a but long but I just cut them with scissors and Voila!

Cardigan / Gray T-Shirt / Gray Denim 

This is how I wore the cardigan last fall and winter a bit more dressed up.  I promise you will want to wear it all the time!  I also threw it over my work out clothes and even my nightgown for movie night!  It’s so cozy!

Day Dress

Frank and Eileen Tshirt Dress

I love a good throw and go dress.  This dress from Frank and Eileen has my name on it!  Whether supervising online school or actually driving someone to school, I know I’ll wear this a lot.  I actually plan on wearing it today!

Red Dress

Eliza J Red Dress / Tortoise Clutch / Alicia Earrings / Nude Sandals

You know I’m a dress girl and can’t resist a really good one.  This Eliza J red dress is a dream!  When I get to get dressed up for a nice occasion, THIS will be what I wear.  The seaming details are beautiful and help define your waist.  The V neckline is very pretty and not too low.  This is my favorite dress in the sale!

Below are more favorites from different categories.  I’ve curated pretty tight boutiques of what I liked best to help you sort through things quickly.

Happy shopping and TGIF!
