Happy Monday all! You’re probably thinking “Really Becca? Fall? It’s 100 degrees outside!” My response to that is, it’s never too early to start getting your fall wardrobe essentials, especially with Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale starting on Thursday (for card holders). Sale opens to everyone on July 21. More details on this in a second.
How to Establish Your Fall Wardrobe
The first thing I recommend doing is think back to last fall/winter. Were there any items you wish you had? A pair of booties, some basic leggings, a heavier jacket? Pinterest is always a great place for outfit inspiration.
Then go through your closet and see if anything needs to be replaced. Wore out those ankle booties last year? Well now is the time to find new ones.
Next, make a list of things you need to pick up between now and the cold weather. Keep the list with you so if you plan to be at the mall or out running errands you can refresh your memory on what to be on the lookout for. Saving the list on your phone is a good idea.
Lastly, keep your eyes open everywhere you go. You never know when the perfect piece is going to be somewhere you least expect it.
What are Fall Wardrobe Essentials
Tops you can layer
Sweaters of varying lengths and style
Outerwear: vests, jackets, blazers
Bottoms: jeans, leggings, suede or corduroy skirts, wool blend pants
Shoes: booties, knee high boots, duck boots or snow boots (If you live or are traveling somewhere it snows), suede pumps
Accessories: scarves (plaid are my fav for fall/winter), beanies, felt hat, tights
When you hear the term sale you think of outgoing, outdated merchandise. Basically things stores are trying to get rid of. Not the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s new stuff to prepare you for fall/winter. Which is WHY I’m sharing this fall wardrobe essentials post with you before the sale begins. Included in the Nordstrom sale are some items you can wear now. Not to mention the savings on huge brands like Tory Burch, Kendra Scott, Stuart Weitzman, Sam Edelman, and Rebecca Minkoff.
If you do plan to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale make sure you shop early, don’t hesitate on a purchase because it may be gone, and take advantage of the free shipping and free returns. Don’t know what size? Order two and send one back for free!
As a preview of the Anniversary Sale, I looked through their women’s catalog and picked out items I hope to add to my fall wardrobe. Of course I shared my picks with you below 🙂
Once the sale begins I will do my best to share my favorites on IG stories. Follow me! @lexiandlady
