Shopping for fall items during the summer is only fun when everything is on sale. IF I were going to shop at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I would buy a few things – leggings, sneakers, a cardigan, and maybe a throw blanket. Since we just bought a house, I have to be responsible with my spending. I asked around though and you all want to see what I would buy if I wasn’t shopping for floor tile and toilets instead. Enjoy!
I own a few pairs of Zella leggings and can honestly say for their price, they are comparable to Lululemons. They are snug, high waisted, totally forgiving, and the best stretchy pants for when you eat too much on fall football Sundays. If you live in athletic wear (like myself), grab yourself a pair of cropped lite Zella leggings before they are sold out. Grab a workout tank while you’re at it – this Zella Mira Tank is only $24.90.
My friends all own the SPANX Faux Leather Leggings, but I look silly in them. They say they’re so flattering and can be dressed up or down. They’re on sale for $64.99 (originally $98) so I highly recommend buying them now if you love them.
During the cooler months I live in open front cardigans. Last year everyone had the Free People cardi that sold out in seconds and Nordstrom has put out something just as amazing this season: a TopShop Long Open Front Cardi. In addition to this cozy comfy sweater, I’d also snag this Barefoot Dreams Hooded Cardigan or Madewell Ryder Cardigan. The Free People Saturday Morning cardigan in Wine is also screaming, WEAR ME while apple picking this fall!
I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect white bedding for our new whitewash gray bedroom suite and Nordstrom has a dreamy cotton duvet cover (but it’s not in the right size). There is also a Chenille Latice Duvet and the Selene Duvet Cover in white that would be perfect in our room, but neither come in California King. They do have Egyptian Cotton Sheets in California King though for under $100.
Last year there was a cuddly blanket, the Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw, that sold out quickly. It’s back, only $25.50, and I want it in a few colors: navy for our family room, white for the girls bedrooms, and maybe another for our bedroom.
I love nothing more than a two piece set of pajamas, but hate spending a ton of money on them. Nordstrom carries J.Crew and their pajamas are dreamy. For an early birthday present I might just have to treat myself to the J.Crew End on End Sleep Shirt or the J.Crew Tipped Short Pajamas (which I think will sell out fast).
Running sneakers and a pair of low booties are two pairs of shoes that I NEED for fall. Last year I bought a pair of booties during the sale that I wore daily during the cooler months in Connecticut. The Vince Camuto Pevista Bootie is adorable and very similar to my old pair. I also have my eye on a pair of Asics now that I’m running/walking on a daily basis. Oh and if you have been dying for a pair of Hunter Rain Boots, they’re under $100!
