#nsale top picks :: part one

It’s here! My favorite sale of the entire year…the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I like to refer to this sale as a “reverse sale,” because it is made up of all brand-new, just released Fall items that are drastically marked down {up to 50% off!} before returning to their regular prices after the sale.

Today kicks off early access for Nordstrom card holders, and then it will open up to the public on July 16th. {If you aren’t a card holder, you can apply for a card and then start shopping immediatley.}

I spent this morning at Nordstrom pulling clothes for personal shopping clients and doing a little shopping with my mom for both of us. Here are a few selfies I snapped while trying on some of my favorite sale items. {Stay tuned for more sale favorites coming soon…I haven’t even had time to personally try on all the clothes I’d like to or venture into shoes and accessories yet!}

I have officially found my new favorite pair of skinny jeans! These Hudson mid-rise skinnies feel like a legging and fit like a dream. {The color is much better in person than it appears in this pic.} I’ll be living in these as soon as the weather cools! And this is the cutest, softest flannel shirt, that is shockingly under $30! Both of these items went home with me today.

Those of you who have been following the Edit blog for a while know that I have a *slight* faux-fur obsession during Fall and Winter. This vest is my favorite clothing item I found shopping the sale today. The color is gorgeous and it feels super luxe. And did I mention it is under $100?! If you want a faux-fur vest for Fall {which you should!}, order this one IMMEDIATELY! It will most definitely sell out. {I am wearing a US size 4 here and ordered a US size 2.}

Speaking of fur vests, this one is also under $100, and comes in three gorgeous colors. {I am wearing the green, but the blue and the gray options are equally pretty. I want all three!!}

EVERY gal needs a light-washed chambray shirt in her wardrobe. This one fits perfectly and feels like butter! It’s a piece you can start wearing now, and will be so glad you purchased come Fall. At just $44, this is another piece to order PRONTO! {I am wearing an XS.}

This grid-print fit & flare dress is adorable. It’s appropriate for the office, as well as an evening out. It’s cute with bare legs or tights, and the back dress has a fab zipper detail. {I am 5’7 and wearing a size 2 regular. It hits just above my knee. If you are my height or shorter, I recommend ordering a petite if you like a shorter length.}

I know I sound like a broken record when I say this striped cape is ANOTHER sale favorite. But, really…how cute is this?! It’s lightweight and perfect for layering. I envision wearing it over black skinny jeans or black faux-leather leggings with over the knee boots and/or booties! {Yep, it’s in my bag from today’s trip, too!}

This little lace top is super cute on its own and looks perfect layered under the cape pictured above. It’s something that you can start wearing now with shorts and/or skinny jeans for late-summer.

If you are in the market for a comfy distressed jean, look no further. These distressed rolled straight legs are SO comfy!! I love the wash, distressing and the detail on the cuff. And did I mention they are $59?! {I am wearing a size 2 and they fit just right. I recommend ordering true to size.}

This black and white plaid coat is just so cute! I love that it makes a big statement while keeping neutral enough to layer over just about anything. 

One of my favorite things to stock up on during the Nordstrom sale each year is workout wear. I just LOVE this reversable jacket, that reverses to all black. 

This cozy pullover is unbelievably soft and will be a casual staple in my Fall/Winter weekend wardrobe. These Zella Live-In Leggings, just $33, are a must-have workout staple, since they can be worn to the gym as well as paired with boots as a comfy everyday legging. Since I already own several pairs of the basic black, I opted for the bright purple this year.

These Zella patterned cropped leggings are super stretchy and comfy…perfect for intense indoor or outdoor workouts. The darting makes them flattering, too! And this ruffle back jacket “dresses up” any workout ensemble, making it perfect for running errands and weekend-wear. It comes in multiple colors, making it difficult to just choose one!
