July has become one of our new favourite months because in addition to it being summer and Stampede, we now have the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
The #NSale is about two weeks long and includes fall items up to 40% off. We can never pass up a good sale, especially when it’s on items for the upcoming season, and not past season’s rejects, so we headed to Nordstrom at Chinook Centre and spent more than we care to admit.
Here are our top 5 favourite finds:
1) Trouvé Belted Trench Coat ($135.84 online; $104 in-store)
Seeing this jacket on the rack didn’t do much for us, but we were convinced by our stylist to try it on and we were both immediately sold. Plus, everyone who walked by our change room and saw the jacket stopped to comment on what a great find it was. The lightweight jacket brought many of our outfits together and could serve well as a layering piece for warm winter nights or not-too-cold fall days. Be warned that this jacket doesn’t have a liner and is not water resistant so you’re buying it for fashion not function.
2) Louise et Cie ‘Zalia’ Ankle Bootie ($163.03 online)
These boots were our favourite purchase! They’re leather and have a 2.25 inch heel which is perfect for these two tall girls that don’t like being giants on a day-to-day basis. The site says to buy a size up but we both found that they were true to size. These are a Nordstrom exclusive so get them while you can!
3) Halogen Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater ($122 online; $104.90 in-store)
This sweater is one of those coveted wardrobe pieces that we’ve been on the hunt for – and we finally found the perfect soft, camel-coloured turtleneck. Most sweaters tend to be scratchy, or too thick and hot to wear in an office, but this is a perfectly lightweight yet warm sweater, and we love that it’s a little bit longer and would look great with leggings or jeans.
4) Paige ‘Hoxton’ Ultra Skinny Jeans ($169.83 online)
We put these jeans on and immediately fell in love. These are so stretchy and soft that they could almost pass as a jegging. The dark wash makes it the perfect staple to add to your wardrobe, and pairs well with dark booties for a night time look, or flats for a day time look.
5) Trouvé Leather Moto Jacket ($405.73 online; $229 in-store)
This drape-y leather jacket jumped out at us while browsing the website in advance of our shopping trip, and it was even nicer in the store. Buttery soft, perfectly fitted, with knit panels under the sleeves for extra comfort, this jacket added an edgy, stylish flair to most of our outfits. We had been coveting a jacket like this for a few years now, and this deal was too good to pass up!
