It happens to me every year. I’m in full summer mode and then the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale gets my mind spinning with excitement for fall. Anyone who knows me will say that I tend to overly obsess about changing seasons and fall happens to be my favorite! Because I love fall so much, it’s always my least favorite time of year in LA because we really don’t have a true fall season. It does cool down enough to layer up and I try to travel a lot of cooler temps. So, I was recently scrolling through some of my fall outfit posts from last year and thought about how ready I’ll be to re-wear my outfits this year and recreate them with new pieces. Since the Nordstrom sale opened up to the public today, today’s post is all about just that – my fall outfits to recreate using the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Why not shop the discounts!? Before I dive in, I wrote a full post on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here with tons of my must-have items and I wrote another post on the best items in the sale for under $100. Get going because I already had to tweak this post after writing it since items are selling out so quickly!
Layer With a Military Vest:
The standout piece of this outfit is the military vest. There’s an almost identical one on sale! I can’t tell you how often I wear mine! My sandals are currently on major rotation for summer days but once it cools down I’ll switch them out for these booties from the Nordstrom sale.
Black Jeans For The Win:
There are a couple very similar pairs of black jeans in the Nordstrom Sale. I particularly like this distressed pair, this classic pair, and this pair for $38. The booties I’m wearing are just like these bootie beauties in the sale (under $75). Fall is also the perfect time to break out your cardigans for an extra layer. This one is my favorite cardigan from the Nordy sale (+ you can’t beat the price!).
Fall Uniform: Flannel + Riding Boots:
My go-to outfit in the fall is jeans, a flannel, and a pair of riding boots. The two standout pairs of riding boots in the N Sale are these Tory Burch boots and these Frye boots. Tory and Frye are my two favorite brands for riding boots so you can’t go wrong with either pair. I also really like this pair of riding boots for $117 and this pair of riding boots for $149. This Rails flannel is by far my favorite flannel in the sale but this flannel is pretty similar to mine as well. Oh, I can’t forget that there’s a similar Longchamp bag to mine in the Nordstrom Sale!
Trench Coat Lady:
No piece in your closet will ever be as timeless as a trench coat. There are a few really cute ones in the Nordstrom Sale so now is an amazing time to snag a trench! There’s one for $99, one for $129, one for $149, and one for $179.
Over The Knee Boots or Bust:
Wearing over the knee boots is my favorite way to kill two birds with one stone during the fall and winter… I stay warm and I still achieve a stylish look. If you’re considering adding a pair to your closet then browse the OTK books that Nordstrom has on sale. I’m partial to this pair but these steal versus splurge sky-high pairs are wonderful too.
Cozy Cashmere Sweater
There’s nothing better than a cozy, comfy cashmere sweater. I’m a huge sucker for them! This cashmere sweater is very similar to mine (under $90) and this cashmere turtleneck sweater comes in a handful of colors (Under $90). Similar black jeans (another similar pair for $38) to mine are on sale and similar booties to mine are on sale! Boom, boom, boom!
One Wide Brim Hat In Every Color Please:
I’ve had a black wide brim hat for awhile now but last year I added a navy one to my collection. It was love at first sight! This year, I’m planning to add a gray hat or a taupe hat to my closet. This Rag & Bone hat is a staple (I have it in black) and the navy shade is almost identical to mine. Rag & Bone on sale? I think yes! I also love this gray hat ($19), this black hat ($28) and this burgundy hat ($19). Nordy also has a few similar ponchos on sale too. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how much I love my poncho and this grey poncho is almost identical to mine!
Barbour Jacket Dreaming:
When Barbour goes on sale you know you need to jump! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has this hunter green Barbour Jacket on sale. Looking for some similar Kate Spade? The selection in the sale isn’t huge but click here for all things Kate Spade!
Looking Good In Leather:
It’s no secret that leather pieces are investments. With price points higher than your average purchase, you must make sure you really love the leather item and you must keep your eyes peeled for leather on sale. Nordstrom doesn’t have a similar leather skirt to mine on sale but they do have this creamy leather jacket (or this faux one) that comes in a similar shade. Nordy also has this short black faux leather skirt and this knee length brown faux leather skirt that are both seriously worth grabbing… so cute!
Hunting for Hunter Boots:
This snowy outfit can be recreated with this pair of jeans, this plaid top, this black coat, this fur vest, and these Hunter Boots. One of my best guy friends bought his girlfriend a pair of Hunter Boots for Christmas a few years ago and ever since then I’ve thought Hunters were the best gift! Think about them if you have anyone you love with a fall birthday because they won’t be on sale long!
You’ll never not need a chambray top in your closet. Wear it alone or wear it as a layer, either way you can’t go wrong.
Enjoy the sale loves! My regular Friday highlights are coming soon.
