OK, so it's my favorite time of the year [shopping-wise that is]... the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Even though I live millions of miles away now, in Australia, I shop the sale items every year (and get it delivered to my parents house for my next visit home!) This year, I'm sharing my favorite finds & what I purchased with you in this Nordstrom Anniversary sale guide for working girls on the go. Pretty much everything I buy for these days is for multiple uses - work + travel + weekends. I hate spending money on work clothes that I can't also use for my weekends! Hope this post is helpful if you're in the same boat & can relate!
In Australia, I don't know the brands as well & know my style, aussie sizing, etc. etc. etc. I always say that Nordstrom is MY PLACE - I know what my departments are, my price points, my sizing, and the type of customer service I'm going to get with my favorite store in good ol' America. I also find that shopping down under is expensive for the quality! Not worth it a lot of times in my opinion. In general, I find stores that I would consider on par with the likes of H&M (which I love) but you're paying Anthropologie prices (which I don't love for H&M level quality). So, that being said, I don't do a TON of shopping over here & save my big hauls for my trips home. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
Early Access to the sale already kicked off, so if you're a cardmember you can shop already! If not, you'll have to wait until Friday July 19, and the sale continues through August 5.
There are SO many good items on this year's Nordstrom sale. I definitely spent way too much, but can't wait to head back to California in August to see what I like to decide what to bring back to Aus with me and what to return. I hope you enjoy this post & find some quick items for your shopping cart! ALSO - please let em know what you bought this year in the comments below - there's always room for more shopping, right?! (Hope Joe doesn't read this one! 😬)
$85 down from $129
I settled for black since they didn't have my size in the snake print, but I still love them! Perfect for a day to night show for travel too. Multifunctional for work + travel. I'm all about that.
$49 down from $74
LOVE these. I needed a good pair of navy slacks for work!
$39 down from $59
I got this one in black. It's perfect for Friday night dinner and drinks, or to pair with cute denim shorts & converse in the summer. I would wear this to the office with a blazer of it too - so perfect for work-to-chic girls to be ready for happy hour.
$53 down from $80
THESE ARE MY FAVORITE FIND HANDS DOWN. It has all the things that check boxes for me: the price is right, they're my favorite brand - Madewell, & my favorite style of pant for both work & the weekend (cute yet comfy!). They are just perfect for my casual & relaxed Manly Beach style. These remind me of my new Lulu pants that I love so much!
$50 down from $80
I was in need of a white long sleeve blouse! This would be cute with jeans, work pants, paired with a leather jacket for nights out, and so much more. This type of shirt is a basic for any working girl.
$36 down from $55
J.CREW - another favorite brand of mine. I got this in red/white. So classic & put together always, even with things like a striped tee shirt. This is your all american brand. How cute will this be with denim shorts or pants & converse for the weekend, or paired with tan booties for a casual workday? Love stripes!
$70 down from $110
I got these in black but they come in tan & a pinky peach too! These are super cute classics for any outfit, with a cute little scallop so they aren't totally boring classics. I was in dire need of replacing my outworn old black flats, so was happy to see these on the sale!
$28 down from $40
...because Australia sun strength & the ozone layer whole, duh. But in all honesty, I've been putting a lot more effort into my skincare routine, and getting facials more regularly and my aesthetician recommended getting a stronger daily SPF, so I like the idea of it doubling as a makeup setting spray! Plus, I've heard good things about this brand.
$38 down from $58
This is the best, most comfiest in the world. I live in this on weekend days. I read about this initially on a recommendation from Ashley and Emily from Two Peas in a Prada (love all of their recommendations, really!) and had to have it. You can nearly wear it under anything for all occasions from work to travel. This sale price is great!
So that's it guys! That's what I purchased. Like I said, I'm sure I'll return some of these items since I spent more than I wanted to, but can't wait to try them on when I'm back home in August! Miss my Nordstrom shopping, so this is my big annual haul, given the amazing prices!
Happy shopping friends!
