Staple Picks for Fall – Favorite Items Included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially begun for a lot of you shoppers! Since it can be overwhelming to sift through thousands of sale items “just to see if you need anything” I’ve decided to pull a few staples that you’ll be glad you have this fall.

If it’s on the list, it’s something I either have or will grab during the sale. Keep in mind a staple piece means you don’t need several pairs in your closet. One camel coat, for example, is all you need!


The Athletic Look is all about feeling comfortable.

Run a few errands, pick up the kids from soccer, drop off the dry cleaning. Whatever helps you get from point A to point B in a chic and comfortable way.



The Relaxed Look is all about looking put together.

You’re not trying too hard, but you made a considerable effort to match your handbag to your loafers. Grab a latte, meet a friend, go to the farmers market.



The Casual Look is all about what makes you feel “nice”.

You’ve added a heel and a nice leather purse, but you’re still pretending like you “just threw this on”. Wear it to church, dinner with the hubby or a PTA meeting.



  Don’t think of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as an opportunity to get things you weren’t going to buy anyway. Instead, think about what you were missing from your wardrobe last year. Did you regret not having a black pair of leggings to pair with every sweater in your closet? This would be the time to get it. It’s on sale and going to get used. As tempting as it is to go nuts and buy all-the-things, curb your desires and stick to the staples. You’ll thank me this fall!
