Closet Essentials to Buy During the Nordstrom Sale

Happy Friday y’all! I am really looking forward to the weekend! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public beginning today! I’m hoping they do some re-stocks on a lot of the great basics they had during early access. This year I didn’t do a lot of shopping during the sale. I bought mostly closet basics- like a pair of denim, a pair of flats, and a few neutral sweaters. Today I wanted to share some closet basics that are great to grab during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!


JACKETS & BLAZERS | (L to R: utility jacket, Patagonia vest, Barbour jacket, J.Crew blazer, oversized plaid blazer) This sale is a great time to grab an outerwear piece for fall/winter! SO many name brands are on sale that almost NEVER go on sale!

CARDIGANS & SWEATERS | (L to R: v-neck bell sleeve sweater, ribbed cardigan, side slit sweater, grey cardigan) You can’t go wrong with a cardigan or a few sweaters!

TOPS & BLOUSES | (L to R: plaid top, button back top, blue blouse, striped bell sleeve top) There are so many great work wear tops along with tops that will be great to wear now & into the cooler months!

BRAS & UNDERWEAR | (L to R: Zella sports bra, Natori bra, hanky panky underwear) There are great name brand bras and udnerwear that are on sale! I love grabbing a few sports bras and stocking up on my favorite underwear during the sale.

ACCESSORIES | Whether you’re looking to grab a cozy scarf, a designer bag you’ve had your eye on or even a new piece of jewelry, you can’t go wrong by shopping the accessories section of the sale!

JEANS & LEGGINGS | (L to R: Paige denim, Trouvé leather leggings, Wit & Wisdom denim, Zella live-in leggings) I’m a tried and true denim girl, so I always get excited to see what denim is available during the sale! I bought my first pair of Zella leggings during early access!

SHOES | (L to R: leopard mules, Nike sneakers, neutral booties, Nike Air Max Thea sneakers, over the knee boots, Tory Burch flats, Adidas sneakers) Shoes might be my favorite thing to shop during the sale! I love the endless options of booties, boots & sneakers!
