10+ Best Wardrobe Basics from the 2021 Nordstrom Sale

When it comes to shopping for fall, I don’t think it’s a secret that I (and almost everyone else, it seems) love hitting up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Each year, I refresh worn-out staples like ankle boots, find a statement piece for the season, and shop the latest trends. It’s a good time to dive into your closet and see what could use an update. This year the NSale has already started for the highest tier of Nordstrom members, ICON! But for many of us, the sale opens up in the coming days or weeks. In the meantime, I’ve rounded up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks that make for great wardrobe basics and have been tried and true favorites for me over the years.

I like to be smart about the sale, set a spending limit, and plan what I’m shopping for ahead of time so I don’t get sucked in by the shiny sale prices. With that said, over the years I’ve noticed some of my absolute favorite pieces seem to get updated for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale each year. New colors, fabrics, and textures get released, but still, the garment is mostly the same as the year before.

I’ve rounded up my all-time favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks that return (almost) every year to the NSale. Hopefully, you’ll find a new favorite or great wardrobe basic, too!

Are you a fan of combat boots? I’ve always liked the look but often was intimidated and didn’t think I could pull it off. What I’ve learned is that it’s all about how to style combat boots with pieces you already own that make the difference. If you find combat boots to look too edgy, no worries! Add a romantic spin with a feminine dress, or make them more casual with jeans and a graphic tee. With 90s fashion hotter than ever, there’s really no better time to add a pair of combat boots to your closet and create outfits to wear with combat boots all year long!

Before making the splurge and purchasing a pair of combat boots, I always recommend creating at least 3 different outfits with pieces in your closet that you could envision yourself wearing. After all, there’s no worse purchase than one that collects dust in your closet!

Today, I thought I’d take you through my “creative process” of what happens in my brain when I’m considering adding something new to my closet. In this post, I’ll be sharing my personal combat boot and lace-up boot picks, plus a few outfit ideas to get you thinking when it comes to how you decide to style your combat boots!

25+ Colorful Picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

Today’s the day! What day you ask? Well it’s finally my turn to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, of course!

I know, I know.

Yes, it’s true. Like every other blogger, their sister, Mom, AND grandma, I’m shopping the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom since I was little. Once I graduated college and had more of an “adult” budget for shopping, I got wise and shopped for fall items in the middle of summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, too.

Fall happens to be my favorite season for fashion, so it’s no wonder I get a little excited about the sale. If you’ve been shopping the sale for a while, too, you’ll start to notice a pattern of brands and products that come back every year in new colors, washes, patterns, and textures. It’s a great time to stock up on the best Nordstrom Sale wardrobe basics, but I always look forward to finding those standout, colorful pieces that really make a statement in my fall wardrobe, too!
