THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE 2021 IS HERE!

I’ve never shared a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale workwear try-on before, and I’m happy I found some amazing business casual and business-appropriate items this year. I plan to continue styling different ways!

SHOP THE LOOK

Treasure & Bond Snakeskin Print Trim Wide Brim Wool Panama Hat | This hat will sell out in a quick second. Last year’s snakeskin print hat was gone on the first day so I’m hoping this one is well stocked!

L’agence Chamberlain Blazer | This blazer is most definitely a splurge. I actually didn’t even realize the price point until I checked out but it’s such a beautiful workwear/layering staple that will look beautiful for years to come (was sold when I saw the color)! I have mine on in a 0 and just realized linking it that it comes in a 00, so I’m going to switch it out since I have a little bit of room in the 0.

All In Favor V-Neck T-Shirt | This tee is a must-have! It’s under $16 and very comfortable. It’s a material you can easily dress up or wear under a blazer. I also ordered the color dune and sized up to a small.

Everyday Basic High Waist Crop Ponte Leggings | These leggings were such a great surprise! I randomly picked them up while shopping in-store and the fit and length are perfect (true to size, xs). I’m so sad they sold out (hoping for a restock) but there’s another pair that I ordered that are super similar.

Similar Black Pumps | I already had these black pumps in my closet but there is a very similar pair from the same brand included in the sale. They are under $50 and a staple shoe to have on hand. I always buy true to size in this brand.

Tory Buch Carson Convertible Leather Crossbody Bag | I love that this new crossbody has several compartments inside and can be worn several different ways. I got the shade moose because I felt like it would go best with my neutral color palette.

SHOP THE LOOK

Veronica Beard Theron Tweed Jacket | This jacket was pulled by my stylist (I don’t know that I would have picked it myself) and the minute I put it on I was sold. The fit is amazing! I have on the 0 and love that it’s a versatile workwear or casual layering option for fall. The quality is fantastic!

Halogen The Neck Shirt | The perfect work shirt! It’s conservative and versatile, yet still very trendy. A great way to incorporate something fun into your everyday workwear. It runs true to size (wearing xs).

Paige Skyline Crop Raw Hem Skinny Jeans | Very pleased with these jeans! I own one other pair of Paige jeans I like but I love these. The fit is really flattering (they hold you in in all the right places) and the length is perfect for petite. It’s hard to find a true crop at 5’2″. I also love the dark wash because you can dress them up. My previous Paige jeans ran small but I got these true to size in a 24.

Similar Black Pumps | I already had these black pumps in my closet but there is a very similar pair from the same brand included in the sale. They are under $50 and a staple shoe to have on hand. I always buy true to size in this brand.

SHOP THE LOOK

Madewell Kent Colorblock Cardigan | The color way of this cardigan sold me. I’ve been all about shades of tan this year, and I love the colorblock design. It’s very soft and a good price point under $60. It would make a great workwear option as well! I’m wearing xs true to size.

All In Favor V-Neck T-Shirt | This tee is a must-have! It’s under $16 and very comfortable. It’s a material you can easily dress up or wear under a blazer. I also ordered the color dune and sized up to a small.

Zella High Waist Studio Pocket 7/8 Leggings | I buy several pairs of Zella leggings every sale. Since I’m only 5’2″ the 7/8 leggings work best. This year’s version has a small pocket at the top and they are very slimming. I always buy xs true to size in this brand

Similar Sam Edelman Suede Knee High Boot | These were my most worn boot last year. Extremely comfortable and they go with just about any outfit! I even took them to NYC and Napa last year, walked around for hours, and had no complaints. I’m wearing my true size.

Spanx High Waist Ponte Leggings | I’m really pleased with these ponte leggings from Zella. They are figure-flattering and perfect for work because they are thick enough to be worn as a pant, but also very comfortable. Size-wise, I got the small (like I normally do in Spanx) but they are a smidge big in the waist. So I ordered the xs in hopes they will be perfect.

Steve Madden Forever Chain Pointed Toe Mule | This year’s Steve Madden mule is the most comfortable ever! I was shocked when I put them on and they already felt broken in. They have a padded sole and fit well to the foot so your feet aren’t slipping out. I got the tan and love how well they go with the other sale items I purchased. I always go up a 1/2 size in this brand.

Clare V. Simple Leopard Print Suede Tote| This tote is beautiful! Its nice and slouchy and the material is much nicer than I anticipated. I love that it comes with a black white striped strap so can carry it hands-free.

SHOP THE LOOK

Treasure & Bond Plaid One-Button Blazer | This fall-centric blazer is true to size (wearing xs) and under $66. It’s a great piece for layering a casual look, or even a dress, but would also be perfect for the office or a zoom call!
