My Guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

My Guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

My Favorite, Affordable Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s here! I wrote a couple of days ago (here) about why the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is my favorite sale of the year. The number one reason I love the Nordstrom Sale is the ability to shop fall items at a drastically reduced price. I have shopped it for years, even when living in NYC where strangely, a physical Nordstrom store doesn’t exist. Normally you don’t get the chance to grab items on sale until later in the season when size and selection has narrowed. Fall is also my absolute favorite season for getting dressed. I love all of the boots, booties, blazers, bags and blouses that go along with it. Having a few pieces in my closet to look forward to when the temperatures drop is pretty exciting. While I didn’t go to the store yesterday, I did wake up at 5:15A this morning to grab my picks. Seeing as the sale officially started at 2A CST I guess I’m a little late, but this is my first time blogging about this, there’s always next year!

Blank NYC Suede Jacket

These pictures feature one of my all-time favorite jackets, which sadly I did not purchase during the sale but I do also have it in maroon suede. While I paid full price both times, you can find it here in olive and ruby red. It’s such a high quality piece that is incredibly versatile. You can wear it on it’s own similar to how you would wear a blazer or you can toss it over a blouse or top. When the temps are chilly but not too cold for a coat, it’s a great in-between piece. It’s nice and heavy and has become a wardrobe staple for me.

My Picks from the 2018 Sale

This year I bought a couple of sweaters, blazers, tops, as well as a few pairs of boots and slides to mix and match. I feel strange as I didn’t find booties I love but I may go back and discover another pair I can’t live without. I organized my picks below into a couple of different categories to keep shopping easy. I’m having everything delivered from buying it online, in full disclosure I hate actually shopping in person. I’ll report back on the fit of everything, but I made comments below as most brands I’ve purchased previously.

You can check out my Instagram today @savagesentiments for items in my stories, comment there, here or email me on your faves and what you find! Also, Ben if you are reading you can go ahead and take my credit card from me for a few months…

Fashionable Finds for Fall Under $100


nordstrom skirt

Giving this skirt a whirl from my favorite suede jacket brand, tbd if it will be long enough for me!



LOVE a good white/cream sweater, I think this will be cute with jeans or a skirt


I can’t resist a good plaid shirt and for whatever reason these shirts are Ben’s favorite style on me


I bought this in medium since the small sold out before I was able to check out, will keep you posted on the fit!


Their wrap dress is a favorite, I plan to layer this with long cardigans/sweaters


Color of the upcoming season! Would look pretty with jeans and even a cami underneath


I have a similar black cami, this will look pretty on its own or layered under a plaid shirt or simple sweater


This brand randomly fits me really well, I think this would be cute with booties and even my suede Blanknyc jacket


My shearling pullover was my favorite piece from last fall, I’m happy to add another cozy one


This jacket is my absolute favorite, I have in three other colors and love the tweed for this year


The ruffles they added and the color of this season’s tank are so pretty! Love these for date nights under a leather jacket

Must-Have Boots & Slides


I have over the knee boots with a high heel, I think this is the perfect height for me, easy to walk around in and still super chic


Nearly all of my boots are grey or black so I was determined to find a lighter shade, this boot does the trick!


Admittedly I’m between these mules and the ones below, we’ll see which one I favor once they arrive


But how fun are these, I might have to keep both!


I always need a solid black bootie and I like the sturdy heel and pointy toe on this one
