Unless you’ve been under a rock the last few weeks or completely avoid social media, I’m sure you already know that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening. Early Access officially kicks off today (this means you have the Nordstrom Card), and regular access happens on July 19th. It’s a huge sale that people go nuts for because items are up to 40% off and new arrivals hit at the same time (so it’s actually worth it to shop), so depending on what you’re looking for, you could land some sweet deals during the sale.
While it’s a great time to shop for designer pieces, pre-fall clothing + coats, I would advise people to use this sale to shop for staple pieces that can be worn for multiple seasons to come (think denim, boots, moto jackets, skirts, etc.). Right now it’s just way too hot (for me) to even think about buying a coat or (god forbid) a turtleneck, and most of us are fickle with our style choices anyway, so you don’t want to end up with a ton of crap that you wind up never wearing. Take advantage of the deals for sure, but make it make sense, you know?
Anyhoo, I looked through the catalog to see what’s coming and found some great transitional pieces that I wouldn’t mind investing in. Apparently, leopard is going to be a big trend for me (I mean I do consider it to be a neutral), but as usual, I always find myself drawn to certain classic pieces that can be styled so many ways. Here’s a roundup of my top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

Something to keep in mind is that while many items will sell out during the early part of the sale, a lot of them will be restocked before the sale ends (though it may happen at weird times). If you absolutely must have it, then get it, but just really be conscious about your purchase to ensure that you don’t waste any money.
