Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: Staple Pieces

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here!! I did a poll on Instagram & asked if you wanted to see staple pieces that would be worth shopping– 91% said “Yes, please!” so here we are :) Read on to see my top picks that I highly recommend getting your hands on during this sale!

I don’t always shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but there are things I need this year so I actually have my stuff together & my wishlist ready to go! I’m not fancy pants status (lol) so I don’t have early access to shop & show you the try-ons, but I pulled pictures from the site so you can see the items that way. I wanted to share what’s on my wishlist, as well as staple pieces that I own & LOVE, so here ya go!


First, up the Spanx faux leather leggings. These look amazing with just about anything, & they elevate any outfit. I usually pair mine with a cozy sweater & boots, but they go great with heels or a good pair of sneaks.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings: $64.90 After Sale: $98

The Zelle Live In High Waist Leggings are soft, comfortable, & are really good quality for the price! I own a few pairs in black & I just love them.

Zelle Live In High Waist Leggings: $38.90 After: $59


I love a good pair of combat boots to wear with leggings (the faux leather Spanx, to be exact!), jeans, or even tights with a cute skirt. It gives your outfit a fun, edgy vibe that I love.

Gardy Combat Boots: $99 After Sale: $170
Blondo Helen Hiker Boots: $99 After Sale: $179

Knee-High Boots

A knee-high boot is a versatile boot &, to me, it’s the epitome of fall! Here are a few different options that would make a great addition to your closet.

Frye Charlie Seam Boot: $249.90 After: $427.95
Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole: $99.90 After: 169.95
Hunter Waterproof Boots: $99.90 After: $150

Over-the-Knee Boots

Over-the-knee boots are a fun element that add a little somethin’ to any outfit. I usually wear mine with jeans, a belt, & a bodysuit (or sweater), but you could pair them with a dress for a night out.

Steve Madden Nifty Pointed Toe Boot in Cognac: $79.90 After $129.95
Blondo Esther Waterproof Over-the-Knee Boots: $129.90 After: $201.95


Leather Jacket

I love a good leather jacket because you can wear it so many different ways. Dress it down with jeans or pair it with a cute dress.. you really can’t go wrong! I love the silhouette of the BLANKNYC faux leather one, it’s a bit more taylored/fitted so it doesn’t feel too bulky.

This actually isn’t part of the Anniversary Sale, but the taupe color is super discounted right now!

BLANKNYC Faux Leather Jacket: $39.98 After: $98

Winter Coat

Living in Chicago, a good winter coat is absolutely essential! I’ve owned many coats/sweaters/jackets/pullovers from The North Face & I’ve loved all of them– so even though I haven’t tried this exact one, I’m still confident to share it. It comes in gray, blue, & black, & will keep you super cozy this winter!
