Falling Forward with Nordstrom

How to purposely navigate the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

First thing’s first.  Don’t shop while you’re hungry applies here as well.  If you are anything like me then you like everything you see.   I tend to become just a  wee bit greedy when it comes to buying clothes especially when there are multiple colors of an item I love, and this is not a good thing for me.  For this reason, I take an inventory of  my closet.  I use this time to purge as well.  Purging makes me feel better about buying the new items I plan to buy to add to my wardrobe. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale helps me mark off some of the items on my list.

Here’s what a good Fall Essentials list looks like (no, you don’t have to buy all of these items at once, but use the NA Sale to knock off some of the big items like shoes, jeans, and jackets).

  • 2 dresses -1  print , 1 solid,
  • 2 blouses
  • 2 weekend tops- a sweatshirt and a tee,
  • 2 pairs of jeans: black skinny jeans and a denim pair
  • 1 Blazer
  • 1 hat
  • 1 pr. of OTK boots
  • 1 pair of booties
  • 1 pair of flats
  • 2 pieces of statement jewelry
  • 2 skirts
  • A hat
  • A scarf
  • Moto Jacket (preferably leather)
  • Handbag

Once I have my list, I head over to Pantone to check out what the colors are for the  season.  This is actually my favorite part.  I love seeing if I have already been eyeing colors that Pantone has chosen for the season.  Below are my favorite color choices for the Fall 2018, and of course Orange is one of them.  I love choosing a color palette that complements itself.

  1. Almond Bluff
  2. Red Pear
  3. Quetzal Green
  4. Martini Olive
  5. Crocus Petal
  6. Russett Orange
Here are some of the items I fell in love with from the Nordstrom sneak peak catalog. I’m sorry I can’t link anything until the sale goes live.
  1. Print Dress- Halogen Removable Bow Dress
  2. Sweatshirt
  3. Color On- Trend Blouse
  4. Classic Blouse
  5. Corduroy Baker Boy Cap
  6. Miggi Boot
  7. Suede Bootie
  8. Black Skinny Jeans
  9. Statement Earrings
  10. Graphic Tee
  11. Studded Flats

I am absolutely in love with these pieces,  even if I don’t get a chance to get them, at least I know what I’m looking for when I go to search for similar items.  In the meantime, check out what some of the bloggers I follow are eyeing at The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.   Happy shopping!
