Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Jackets

1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5.


The Alexander Wang 2-in-1 leather/denim jacket (#5) is just GORGEOUS and SO cool, but it’s pricey! The Treasure and Bond option (#1) is much more affordable. I also like this classic option by Lewit.

Nordstrom Anniversary sale Coats

1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5.


As you may recall from my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog picks video here, I ordered the Badgley Mischka wrap coat in lavender. I think the coat is also SO gorgeous in camel! Every year I order a Veronica Beard dickey blazer and I’m amassing quite a collection. This year’s version is a sleek plaid! I think I am most excited about seeing the Avec Les Filles Suede Trench. It reminds me so much of a vintage one I used to have and wear around New York in my early 20’s.

One of the sweaters that has been in the sale for the past two years is the Leith circle cardigan. It’s always one of the most popular picks! I have TWO colors now.

  1. i am from san antonio and don’t follow many blogs, but started following your blog aFter Watching a hAir curling TUTORIAL for my daughter that i learned of from a san antonio friend. i love your style and have ordered some clothing you have featured in the past blog posts! have loved those iteMs. Thank you! You have done makeup tutoRials. i watched one, But unfortunatly would never buy makeup from walmart. my skin is sensitive, so i am picky about my products. i love your light eye makeup iN your Nordstrom anniversary salE viDeo and would love if you would do a makeup tutorial using what you wore in that viedo. i would love that! thaNk yOu!

  2. Hi Erin. This is my first Nordstrom anniversary sale and I am a little confused. I signed up for the card and got early access, but I only see a few items on sale. I had heard that the sale was much bigger than this. I’m i’m curious, do they open the floodgates at a later timE, or is this just it?

    1. There are hundreds of pages of items…. you need to sign into your CC account to see everything. Did you create an online account?? The sale is BIG.

  3. Thanks for all of your wonderful picks and advice! Last Year i invested in a travel friendly wardrobe via this sale Which turned out to be a fantastic at home wardrobe for me as well (dont need work clothes anymore yeah). Would you consIder doing a selection of travel friendly pieces from the sale this year? Thanks!

  4. Hi Erin,
    Thanks for covering the sale! I noticed that the Vince plush fleece hoodie from the catalog is not in your blog amonGst The jackets. Did it sell put so fast?

  5. Hello Busbee,
    I’M lydia from Kenya, and a ardent follower of your channel but Nordstrom stores don’t ship to Kenya either…I would like a few stuff from your selection but for now , I just have to let them go.

    Best regards,

  6. Well, Im *trying* to sticK to the foundational pieces like i should because i really need some of those things, but the charles david court mesh booties are practically walking themselves into my cart (along with some makeup i dont strictly need, but so pretty!)

    Isnt there some saying about ‘buy a foundation, feel free to get a chandelier’? if not, i thiNk it’s time to make it a thing.

    Thanks for compiiling these lists. It’s not your fault you leD this horse to water and she wandered off And started drinking champagne.

    1. You gotta buy a little fun too! I ordered those mesh booties as well and you know what, I have NO CLUE where I’m going in those! 😉 You are hilarious! Erin xo

  7. Hi ERin, I have been watching your yt videos for a while now and decided to subscribe to your blog as well. you mentioned to refer to basic essentials as we go shopping during the anniv sale. however im not able to locate that list. i would like to print them so i can buy the basic foundation that i need for my wardrobe. thanks

  8. Thanks so much for all your great pics and advice! I have just had to redo my entire wardrobe due to life CHANGES AROUND HEALTH WHICH DRASTICALLY CHANGED MY WARDROBE. I AM NOW REBUILDING A WARDROBE THAT BETTER FITS A MORE CASUAL VS BUSINESS?SOCIAL LIFESTYLE BUT WANT stylish options. (I am a mom mid 40s previous high heel lover and HUDSON JEAN HOARDER). I would be great if you could target picks that are comfort not sacrificing style. What pieces are easy to get on? Which high end and low end jeans were the softest and most comfortable and the easiest to get on? Shoes specifically- EX. So many booties and boots so similar! which ones were easiest to put on and the most comfortable after walking around for a little bit in the department. I LOVED the Stuart W high heeled pointy toe slouchy bOots, but What would be an equally stylish alternative? It seemed so many picks were pointy toed which for many women (aging, health issues, on feet all day working, etc.) are unrealistic. NOT a criticism at all of your picks–just a suggestion for an additional category in the future…
    I did buy the Paul Green tan suede booties for 299.00 and splurged! Curious why you did not mention those? Many thanks for your hard work

    1. I totally know what you are saying and that is why in my videos I try to address these things as often as I can. I traditionally like Sam Edelman and vince Camuto boots/shoes for comfort and functionality. Did you see this post? These booties are definitely mom-friendly, very comfy, easy to get on, etc. I also am loving Norma Kamali clothing lately for both travel and everyday. Fabric is soft, doesn’t wrinkle, breathes, high-quality, etc. like these joggers: I tend to lean more toward fashion and function combo than just the pretty… Thanks for the feedback!! Erin xo

  9. Thank youf for this post!! very informative and i cannot wait to start shopping :). I’m so happy to see our favorite blue is still a heavy hitter in many items <3

    1. You just made my day! That is my goal for this sale. Mission accomplished…at least for one person! 😉

  10. Thanks so much for putting this very informative shopping list together. It’s so organized, easy to look at and fun. I love your videos and watch them all the time. Thanks for doing such a great job.

    1. This is such a lovely note! Thank you… Should I make graphics for the rest of the categories or unnecessary? Erin xo
