Do you feel like winter should be over? Me too. We aren’t the only ones who think this because it is time for the Nordstrom Winter Sale. I combed the sale (yes, all 8000+ items) to find the 10 best picks (using some pretty strict criteria). It was not an easy task to narrow to 10 (I cheated a little). While you can find a great deal on coats and boots … all the pieces I selected had to be wearable NOW and two months from now! I wanted transition pieces that I could get some mileage out of (it’s just a bonus they are up to 40% off!!). Here are my top 10 picks for both work and play.
Top 10 Picks
Joie Naya B Print Silk Top – Joie is one of my go to brands for silk blouses. They are classic suit styling pieces that stand the test of time. This pattern is perfect and the fact it is sleeveless means I can wear it well into summer. I can also wear sans suit jacket for date night – BONUS.
Halogen Pinstripe Ankle Pants – I have been drooling over a pair of Rag and Bone striped pants that are ten times the price – I’m hoping these scratch the itch and stop me from buying the other pair. (Fingers crossed)
Two by Vince Camuto Stripe Cable Sweater – A great layering piece that will work now as well as on breezy spring nights. This was in my cart and purchased before I finished shopping the sale – I didn’t want it to sell out!!
Maggy London Watercolor Chiffon Dress – For work under a jacket, for play by itself, spring weddings, summer brunches … you get the idea. I predict this will be a workhorse.
Chelsea28 Wrap Blouse – I’ve been intrigued by this top for a few weeks now. No better time to try it than with 40% savings. I will pair it over dresses (like the Watercolor one above), skirts, pants or jeans.
Leith Ruffle Sleeve Dress – I encountered this dress on my last visit to Nordstrom. The ruffles amp a mostly casual dress up a notch. Pair with the Floral Bomber for a complete look.
BLANKNYC Floral Jacquard Bomber Jacket – I did a whole post on Floral Bombers – so trendy for spring. I love the blue colors of this one and the fact it goes with nearly everything else I’ve put in my cart.
Chloe & Katie Bell Sleeve Top – For this one you have to see the back to truly fall in love. A deep lace v-back making it a perfect date night show stopper. Also available in pale pink. Pair this with the PAIGE Denim.
Sanctuary City Remix Stripe Linen Tee – What can I say, I am a sucker for stripes and pieces that multi-task. The fact it is linen means it will pair with suits as easily as it does denim. Wear with the PAIGE Denim OR a HUGO BOSS suit and bright statement accessories.
PAIGE Colette High Rise Raw Hem Crop Flare Denim – I have these and they are perfect if you like this trend.
Speaking of items that I currently own….
Sale Items already in My Closet
These are all the items on sale that I would buy if I didn’t already own them. I can provide confirmation that all of these pieces are more than worth their discounted price (and I say that having paid full price for them).
Topshop Asymmetric Slinky Drape Midi Dress – If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen this on my feed multiple times. You just may not realize it because I’ve been layering it all winter! Come spring – it will easily stand on its own. You can also see it in this post here.
Via Spiga Scarpa Hooded Single Breasted Trench Coat – I have this in bright red. It is short enough that it pairs with anything and the hood is a total bonus. I can also fit a suit jacket comfortably under this. Also comes in a bright blue.
Classiques Entier Ponte Suit Jacket -Ponte suit jackets are so versatile – wear with skirts, dresses, denim. The Navy color is a perfect base for bright spring colors.
It would be a crime to not also mention shoes … I mean the site is called My 9 to 5 Shoes.
Vince Camuto Kade Cutout Loafer – I’ve been looking for a loafer to wear to work on more casual days. I like the cutout idea and I think that will help it transition to spring. Available in other colors as well.
Geox Amelia 21 Waterprooof Wedge Bootie – I’m optimistic that snow might be over … but it might not … and spring showers are for sure moving in soon. I like the look of the wedge to dress up a rain boot.
Calvin Klein Germina Pointy Toe Wedge – I have this shoe in Navy. It’s great for those days you know you are going to be on your feet or walking tons (think conferences). It is also great for those that don’t buy into heels.
Those are my Top 10 Picks. So what if there was really 18 … I did warn you I cheated the count. Happy Shopping!!
