What I Bought From The 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale The Coastal Confidence by Aubrey Yandow



The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is wrapping up with only three days left of the sale. With that being said, now is the best time to snag some fall staples before the prices return to regular retail pricing. If you are wondering why so many items sold out so quickly, this year’s sale was a little smaller than years in the past which meant staple items went just as quick as investment pieces. While some items are sold out there are still a handful of items like this long cardigan, this trench coat & this men’s quilted jacket that you don’t want to miss out on.

This brings me to today’s post where I’m rounding up what I purchased from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I personally use the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to replace staples that have gotten worn out throughout the year. This includes but isn’t limited to items like sneakers, cardigans, and bralettes. So without further ado here he’s what I purchased from this year’s sale!

Jean Jacket

It’s been a few years since I’ve purchased a jean jacket – so this was long overdue. Jackets whether jean or quilted are essential to any New Englanders fall wardrobe. Now the jean jacket I purchased is sadly sold out, so I’ve linked a few alternatives that I think would look just as dashing here & and for a oversized more modern look style this men’s jacket by going a couple sizes down and adding a belt. Finally don’t forget to snag your boyfriend a jacket as well.

Waterproof Raincoat

No fall closet is complete without a trust waterproof jacket. The fall foliage looks the most stunning in rain – so often when traveling or shooting content I prefer to shoot on days with possible rain showers. This year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale had a handful of stylish jackets that I was excited to add to my collection. I’ve gone ahead a linked a few that I like that are still in stock here, here & here.

Long Cardigan

Every fall closet needs a long cardigan! From chunky cardigans for a cozy look to more lightweight cardigans perfect for work – here are a few cardigans from the sale that I’d recommend. First and foremost this longline cardigan, this classic J.Crew cardigan & this oversized piece.

V-Neck Bralette

We can’t talk about fundamental pieces without referencing underwear! Last year I was introduced to this V-Neck Bralette and I now own it in every color. It sells out almost immediately when listed on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so head over to the True & Co’s site to purchase this bralette on sale for a comparable price.

Plaid Blazer

This plaid blazer is a great and affordable fall staple. Whether your heading back into work or back to school, here are a few more blazers you might want to pick up to give your business casual wardrobe a refresh for fall.

Houndstooth Skirt

I purchased a very houndstooth skirt from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it’s certainly a closet staple of mine. It never goes out of style, looks great dressed up or dressed down and can go with just about any blouse.

Running Shoes

As we begin the transition into fall, I can’t help but get excited for afternoon hikes and long crisp morning walks. This past week, I actually noticed a hole in my current pair of sneakers, from circa 2016, and new it was time for an update thanks to The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Face Base Duo

One item I always try to stock up on during The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is classic skincare and hair products. This year, I purchased a product I’ve always had my eye on this Bobbie Brown Priming Face Base. I also picked up a few staples like this Moroccan Oil, this setting powder & of course dry shampoo!
