2020 Nordstrom Sale: Save or Splurge?

2020 Nordstrom Sale: Save or Splurge?

2020 Nordstrom Sale: Save or Splurge? 800 1200 Just Ashley Lane | Dallas Style Blog

It’s that time of year again..the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I’m not sure why but it snuck up on me this year. I blame COVID! Over the past two years, I’ve loved seeing lots of influencers really trimming down their NSale content. In the past it seemed like people posted endless sweaters and tees and booties. Nobody needs that many items for your fall wardrobe!
With that said, I am following suit and putting together really paired down posts for the sale. Why not start with a good ol’ save or splurge?! It’s important to only get the essentials from this sale for fall and winter and important to know where to invest and where to save. I’m picking 5 pieces below and sharing my thoughts!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Save or Splurge

Slouchy Cowl Neck Sweater: SAVE
This is a classic sweater style that can be worn a lot of different ways: for travel with leggings, with jeans and heeled booties to be a bit more dressed up, or with shorts or a skirt for fall transitional. I don’t think that you need to spend an arm and a leg for a sweater this style!
Leather Jacket: SPLURGE (OR SAVE)
When it comes to a leather jacket, I always recommend investing. I’ve had my leather jacket and suede leather jacket for six years and counting now, and the quality has stayed just the same. I’m also saying you could opt to save here because Topshop makes really great faux leather jacket options!
Quilted Jacket: SPLURGE
A quilted jacket is a winter staple that can last you for 10+ seasons if you choose wisely. That’s why I’m recommending splurging here on the Barbour jacket. They’re extremely warm and so well made.
Classic Blue Skinny Jeans: SPLURGE
Joe’s Jeans offer such a comfy and amazing fit. They’re my only other go-to for jeans in addition to my Madewell jeans. This pair of classic blue skinny jeans will be the base of endless outfits for fall, winter, and early spring. Worth every penny in my opinion!
Black Suede Over-the-Knee Boots: SAVE
I was honestly disappointed with the Stuart Weitzman OTK boot selection in this year’s sale. If I had seen the reserve boot or the lowland boot, this would be a different story! A heeled suede OTK boot is essential for your fall and winter wardrobe but you don’t need to spend the price for designer here.
