Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale – my picks for fall

If you want to score some great fall pieces at extraordinary prices, you won’t want to miss the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Check out my previous post for tips & tricks on shopping this sale.  Below, I’ve included some items that are trending for fall and pieces that I’m crushing on (I will update with some more items as the sale begins).  Happy shopping and may the best(or fastest) shopper win!


Trend 1:  Animal Prints

The animal print trend is definitely not going anywhere.  Snakeskin has been increasingly popular and there are so many cute finds in animal print for fall.  Animal prints act like a neutral in your wardrobe.  What’s your favorite color to wear with animal prints?  I’m loving red and especially burgundy for fall paired with animal prints.  Check out my favorite animal prints:

Trend 2:  Denim that’s not skinny

Skinny jeans are still popular but other styles have been rising in popularity – the mom-jean/boyfriend jean, the flare, and straight leg are just some of them.  I’m really excited for all the flare jeans this fall.  The right pair can elongate your figure making you look slimmer and taller.  I’ve also heard great things about this brand – Good American.  I can’t wait to try them out.  Have you tried them yet?  They supposedly have better fits for those in-between sizes made to flatter all women.  The sale is a great time to try out some new brands and styles at an amazing price.  I’m also in love with Paige jeans after my purchase last spring.  They are made with the perfect material that hugs your body comfortably and won’t stretch out.  And, can I just say how much I love straight jeans? I am obsessed with the style.  They are so flattering on all body shapes and sizes.  If you don’t own any yet, you should.  Here’s what I will be adding to my cart:

Trend 3:  Bright colors and monochromatic outfits

Fall is a great time to break out the jewel tones – and this fall you’ll see even more bright and vivid colors paired in monochromatic outfits with different tones of the same color.  Pair with some snakeskin boots for a chic look.

Trend 4:  Mad for Plaid

Plaid prints are popping up in everything from shoes, to skirts, and jackets.  Don’t be afraid to mix plaid with other prints for a fun look.  This mini-dress is adorable and you can wear now and later by adding a blouse or turtleneck.  It has a cute 90’s vibe that brings back memories for me 🙂  Afraid to go all-out plaid?  Start small by adding some plaid shoes to a neutral outfit.

Top Picks


Top picks 1: Classic Pieces

Ok, this may not be a trend per se but these are definitely pieces needed in every wardrobe!  A nice moto jacket in a faux leather that looks and feels real is on my list.  Last year’s version of this jacket flew off the shelves – i’m not missing my chance this year.  A great classic bootie is a must-have in any wardrobe.  This bootie is a great updated version that’s so sleek.  Check out my picks:

This year’s version of these Born boots are just as fabulous as the ones I have.  If you’re looking for the most comfortable boots – these are it.  I love the rust color too -it’s so versatile and perfect for fall.  These cut-out “shooties” are adorable and can be worn now and later.  I love these low Ugg booties – the perfect height and rugged sole.
