Shop My #NSale Look Inspirations

July 12, 2019

Hello ladies, and welcome to Dressed for My Day. Are you shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale today?!! I am so excited to shop online this morning, pick up my orders at the Nordstrom in Scottsdale, and then shop some more in the store! I hope you’ll read through this blog post and shop with me!

shop my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Looks

Nordstrom Cardholders have access to the sale beginning today at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time. (Not a cardholder? Sign up here.) I imagine that includes many of my readers. So I’m dedicating the day to covering the sale. Yippee! Here on the blog I’ve created SO MANY curated #NSale look inspirations, but I’ll also be adding to my Shop My #NSale 2019 Favorites page and showing my fitting room try-ons on Instagram stories later in the day.

Below I have complete looks coordinated from items in the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you gals like these and are interested, let me know and I can do more for an additional post, maybe as we approach July 19th, when the sale is open to non-cardholders.

I’m featuring…

  • premium denim in most of the jeans looks because, while you will find denim in all price ranges, now is the time to purchase premium denim if you’re EVER going to.
  • premium handbags, but not the high, high end bags.
  • shoes and boots in a variety of price points. Because I’m tall…and because many of my readers don’t prefer heels, I have plenty of lower heeled versions.
  • fashion jewelry, but only those brands that I rarely see go on sale and that I’m familiar with.
  • a few beauty “kits” that provide great quality at a good price.
  • wardrobe essentials under $100, many under $50.

One gentle word of warning: If you’re interested in the items that make up these looks, hop on them as soon as you can. Many of them will sell out before the sale is over. Shipping is free, so you can place multiple orders at no additional cost.

PS – If any of my links are not working, please let me know and I’ll get right on it. It may take a couple of hours before everything is running smoothly. Then again, I may be good to go! Fingers crossed!

Look #1 – Casual + Fun with Black Jeans

Each piece in the look below is less than $100. I paired the black novelty tee with black jeans for a column of one color under a long cardigan. But the leopard print booties and tortoise shell earrings will add plenty of interest and style to this simple, casual look.

NSale Look 1
cardigan // black jeans // graphic t-shirt // leopard print booties // black crossbody bag // tortoise shell earrings

This Madewell cardigan is a wool blend and definitely has more of a wool feel than some of the other cardigans. But it’s still soft. The cardigan runs a little big, so either size down or order two sizes. It comes in 5 great shades for fall & winter.

Look #2 – Leather Jacket with Casual Look

This is one of several real leather jackets that are available for less than $200 during the NAS. I love the feminine silhouette of this Treasure & Bond biker jacket combined with the edgy asymmetrical front zipper.

I’ve also incorporated both snakeskin and croc textures into this outfit.

NSale Look 2

Look #3 – Elevated Sweater & Jeans with High End Bargains

The items in this look are all a little on the higher end. But these are the luxurious wardrobe essentials worth splurging on if you’re up to it. For instance, if you’ve been saving up to spend a little on a classic, quality bag that could see you through all four seasons, this Rebecca Minkoff convertible leather hobo is a worthy contender.

And these AG straight leg jeans will give you great quality denim, but in a straight leg silhouette. The dark wash will flatter and they have a 32″ inseam, so they’re perfect for pairing with heels. (Which I neglected to do here!)

NSale Look 3
AG straight leg jeans // hi-lo cashmere sweater // Rebecca Minkoff leather hobo // Gorjana super star necklace // Longchamp round sunglasses // Marc Fisher pointy toe loafer // Nude Lipstick kit by Lancome

And don’t forget, a pair of sharp looking sunglasses can elevate your look tremendously. As can pointy toe shoes. And this trending but classic Gorjana necklace is such a great buy. I never see this jewelry on sale!

Look #4 – Casual but sporty for transitioning into Fall

Switch out this long sleeve scoop neck tee for a short sleeve basic tee and you’ve got a perfect transitional look for early fall. This red check double breast blazer is so darling and versatile. It would look great with a chambray shirt underneath, too.

AG ex-boyfriend relaxed slim jeans (size down in these! – run big plus plenty of stretch) // scoop neck long sleeve tee // check double breasted blazer // Kate Spade convertible handbag // croc embossed pointy toe loafers (other colors and patterns available) // Charlotte Tilbury The Pillow Talk full size lip kit // star & chain drop earrings // bead link choker necklace

While you’ll find the full range of denim in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this is really the time to buy premium denim if you’re interested. The jeans included in the event will mostly be about 40% off the list price, and you’ll not likely find them this low again.

Size down in these AG ex-boyfriend relaxed slim jeans. I’ve watched plenty of gals on YouTube try these on, and they all say they have lots of stretch and suggest you size down. Oh, and they look oh so cute on.

Look #5 – Casual with Touch of Elegance

Nothing is more classic and comfortable than a soft sweater and comfortable jeans. But you can elevate the look with fashionable booties like these by Marc Fisher. Top even the most casual look with this amazing leopard print coat for pure style! I’ve watched vloggers try it on and love it. They say it feels rich and beautiful.

Look 5 NSale
AG skinny jeans // mock neck sweater // leopard print coat // Marc Fisher pinhole booties // Rebecca Minkoff leather feed bag

Look #6 – Ruched Body-Con Dress with Neutral Accessories

You’ll also find beautiful dresses in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I would select dresses that can serve as wardrobe essentials. This mock neck body-con dress comes in two other fall colors as well and can be dressed up with heels or worn casually with fashionable sneakers or edgy booties.

mock neck body-con dress // Tory Burch leather swingpack // pointy toe bootie // large chunky hoop earrings // Sam Edelman knee high boot // faux leather moto jacket

If you want the look of a leather jacket, but not the price, this faux leather moto jacket is a chic option.

Look #7 – Plaid Levi’s Coat + Waterproof Boots

I’m not sure if I’ll end up with this plaid Levi’s coat, but it’s toward the top of my dream list. I wear a lot of red and black and grey, so I think it would work well as a “second coat.”

felted wool fedora // AG skinny jeans // waterproof rain boot // Levi’s wool top coat // leather crossbody bag // softly structured knit tunic // large chunky hoop earrings

I’m also hoping to snag a felted wool hat in a pretty neutral. This Nordstrom brand fedora only comes in grey, but that’s fine with me. But this Brixton wool hat comes in both black and blush.

Look #8 – Active Wear

I’m definitely shopping for athletic wear during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve fallen in love with Zella leggings and much of their other apparel. You’ll find Zella leggings in full length, ankle, 7/8 length and cropped.

NSale Look 10
7/8 leggings // sheer stripe tank top // Go To wrap // socks // sport bra // Addidas Running Shoe // Garmin Premium multisport watch // shower gel & body emulsion trio

I’m definitely looking to order these Addidas running shoes. I’m waaaay overdue buying new running shoes (because I hate buying them!), and these look like a really good buy. Plus I’ve heard awesome things about them from several sources recently.

Well, hopefully that’s enough to give you a taste of the beautiful, functional pieces included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Don’t forget to check out my Shop My NSale 2019 Favorites page for all my favorite finds in the sale. And I’ll be adding to it as the sale goes on.

Blessed for My Day

Any success I experience in my work is due to the Lord opening doors, training “my hands” for my craft and providing strength. I may be tempted to take credit for my own victories, but when I credit God with my wins instead, they are sweeter.

What do you credit with your success? May we be women who daily acknowledge the grace of God in our lives. May we be in awe of the attention He grants us. And may we seek first and foremost to please Him.

Blessed be the Lord, my rock,
    who trains my hands for war,
    and my fingers for battle;
he is my steadfast love and my fortress,
    my stronghold and my deliverer,
my shield and he in whom I take refuge,
    who subdues peoples under me. ~ Psalm 144:1-2

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay

  1. Many beautiful things at some good prices, and it is fun to shop but nothing that “means the world to me”.

  2. Kay, I love the way you group things together. Helps me know what to buy and also how to utilize what’s already in my closet. Thanks for sharing your great taste!! Have a great Friday and weekend.

    Happy shopping!!! Rhonda

  3. Kay, you’ve done an amazing job! Better than some bloggers who have been doing this much longer! I’m in the Nordic Club, and just applied for my N credit card! Yikes?

    1. Great! You should be able to shop today. Last year I think I ended up having to call them for help to access my account because I had just recently opened it. so persevere if you run into trouble. But hopefully things will go smoothly for you. Enjoy!!

  4. Wow! Excellent job Kay….assembling outfits for us no less!! LOVE it. You’ve gone the extra mile for us….way better than any other blogger I follow in presenting the #NSale to us. Unfortunately, I’m not a card holder and just praying some of the items I want are still available next week when I can shop! I intend to remedy that very soon….and get a Nordstrom card asap! I know it’s too late for this year but there are so many other reasons to have one. I will definitely shop next week through your links too!! Have fun today and safe travels!!

    1. Thanks so much for the kudos. I have worked HARD but it’s a joy because you gals make it worth it. ? Actually, no pressure, but it’s not too late to get the card. If you apply for it today you should be able to use it immediately. You may have to make a phone call in the process just to get the online account linked up (but maybe NOT) and then you’re good to go! Either way, I’m sure there will be lots of good things left for next Friday. People will start returning sell-outs too. Blessings for a lovely day!

    1. Hi Karen. I don’t mind at all. But I never wear them more than one day, not two in a row. Also, if I’m with my husband I generally don’t wear very tall heels because he’s just under 6 ft. and I don’t really like being taller than him. Otherwise, I’ve learned to enjoy my height…finally! For years I felt self-conscious about being tall. But now I don’t actually even feel very tall compared to so many other women I know.

  5. Kay, what a terrific job you’ve done, both with your NSale favorites page and the outfits you’ve put together today! It’s all so helpful and really helped me be efficient in my ordering this morning. Loved your curation of the sale and really liked the outfits you showed us today. Now on to checking out your IG story for fitting room session! A big thank you!!

    1. Great. That’s so good to hear, Lynn. Thanks so very much for shopping with me. ??? I’m packing up now and heading to Phoenix. Unfortunately there wasn’t nearly as much available for in store pickup as I’d hoped. But I’ll enjoy trying on other things. I wayyyy over ordered so I’ll be returning things later. But boot fit is really hard for me due to thick calves ?. So I ordered sooo many boots!! Have a wonderful day. ?
