In my eyes, the Nordstrom anniversary sale is the time to buy your investment pieces. Honestly, through and through I’m a classics girl. I love pieces that will stand the test of time and really struggle to fall in love with trendy pieces. That being said, the #NSALE offers so many great opportunities to stock up on your favorite cashmere, silk and leather pieces. These are the true steals of the sale as so many pieces are marked at hundreds of dollars off. These are the pieces that you will have for YEARS not just a season. While at first blush it can be a tough pill to swallow, these are always the pieces that I never regret buying. Instead, conversely, these are always the pieces that I regret not purchasing during the #NSALE as I realize throughout the season how much wear I truly would have gotten out of the investment pieces that I passed over. This year, during my anniversary sale shopping, I’m choosing to focus on the investment pieces when I shop as I know they are the pieces I truly love the most. While that may mean purchasing fewer items, I know that these pieces will be the ones that stay in my closet for years to come. Here are my picks for the investment pieces of the NSALE:
The sale is the perfect time to pick up Tory Burch flats. These are so comfy and go with everything. They’re great quality and will be your go to. I found these true to size.
Grabbing a good quality handbag is always a good thing. This leather All Saints bag rivals some of my designer handbags in terms of quality for a by far smaller price tag. It’s so good.
This cashmere Vince cardigan is the holy grail of cardigans. I got one last year in a slightly more camel hue and I’ve worn it to pieces. This is absolute perfection. I’m obsessed. I’m wearing an xs.
This Rebecca Taylor dress is so cute! I’m in a small here. If I didn’t already have something similar it would have come home with me. To be honest, I’m half debating picking it up anyway. It’s perfect for work and play.
This Joie lace back top is so perfect! I’m in a small. I love the detailing!
This blush pink Joie top is also a stunner. Love the color and detailing! It’s so feminine. I’m in a small.
This ruffle hem top is a winner. It’s super soft and can be styled a million different ways. I’m in an xs.
This cashmere cardigan is a steal! It’s super soft and amazing quality for under $200! I’m in a s/m.
This white cashmere sweater is staple. I love the oversized fit. I’m in a small.
The fun sleeves on this cashmere sweater make it so interesting. It is beyond soft. I’m in a small.
This black vince cashmere cardigan is a must have. I’m in a small here. It will go with everything this fall and would be amazing to take to work with you now to stay warm in your chilly air conditioned office!
This Kate Spade sweater is so cute! I love the tassel details. I’m in an xs here.
This theory cashmere cardigan is what dreams are made of. If I could only buy one thing from the sale this year, it would be this. I’m in a size petite. It’s seriously my favorite thing that I’ve bought from the sale in the past few years. I will be wearing it weekly come fall.
This jacket is so good. At just $200, it’s so well made and fits amazing! I’m in an xs. This will not last long in the sale!
This cashmere cardigan is so soft and perfect. I love the fabric on this! It’s a pretty good price considering the quality!
Finally, this silk top is so amazing. I’m in small here but will most likely be ordering the petite size. I love the ruffle detail. I know this top would be as amazing with work pants as it would with jeans on weekends. It’s one of my favorites!
Remember, items in the sale tend to go at lightning speed. If you want something, get it. Unfortunately, sometimes we don’t get a second chance. That being said, if your size is sold out, don’t give up hope as Nordstrom does pretty frequent restocks but you have to check back often!
Enjoy the sale and your weekend!
