Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 – Jackets and Coats

I’m a sucker for coats and jackets, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a good time to shop for one. (It’s also a great time for shoes — I had a few picks in part 1 of my Anniversary Sale roundup.)

How cute is this plaid number full of fall vibes?

This one below looks super cozy. Both the plaid one and the asymmetrical one are by Halogen, a Nordstrom brand. I love Halogen not only for the style, but because most of their clothing comes in petite versions too. Getting coat sleeves hemmed is not a cheap proposition, so I am grateful for that.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I still have part 3 of my Uniqlo summer review coming up (part 1 here and part 2 here) but it’s time to take a break to talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I can’t believe I forgot that Early Access (for Nordstrom card holders) started on July 13. I usually put it down on my calendar. The sale is for fall season (my favorite fashion season!) and it’s a decent sale. Most items seem to be around 25 to 35 percent off.

I happened to have an appointment downtown today, so I stopped by at the end of the day to take a quick look. Let’s start with shoes, since Nordstrom got its start selling shoes.

These Sam Edelman flats topped with a bow come in a lot of colorways and seem like a classic wardrobe staple. This brand unfortunately doesn’t work well for my wide-ish feet, but I think it’s a great buy if it works for you. Another good option are these Cole Haan ones which have a stacked heel and are sans bow. (The loafer slides were also part of the sale, but I’m not a fan of their look.)
