Summer Capsule Wardrobe

FROM THE ANNIVERSARY SALE

If you aren’t familiar with a capsule wardrobe, let me introduce you to something that might literally change your life. The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to buy a few items that you can style a ton of different ways. Some people buy one capsule wardrobe for their entire year while I like to think of capsule wardrobes seasonally. Typically in capsule wardrobes you see less trendy items and more basic, timeless pieces that can be worn year after year and over and over again. This is why people are willing to invest a little more money into a capsule wardrobe because you should get the absolute most wear out of these outfits possible!

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on, we thought it would be fun to select a Summer capsule wardrobe made up of items from the sale in case you wanted to score new, name brands for less but I will also link similar items from other retailers in case you want a more affordable option or in the event that Nordstrom pieces sell out. See below for alternatives as well as outfit styling inspiration made up from items in the capsule wardrobe!

2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Can you believe it’s already time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale again because I most certainly cannot! This will be my 7th year covering the sale so if you have been around for awhile then you know what to expect! If you aren’t familiar with the sale, it includes never before seen name brand items that are marked down as much as 40% off! I like to personally stock up on basics that I can wear all year like denim, athletic clothes and shoes but you will see it all! There are thousands of items included across all categories- men’s, women’s, kid’s and home with crazy good deals in each.

Coverage wise from me, you can check out last year’s content here (including a HUGE try on session here). You all really liked the in store try on session with sizing and fit information so I will be doing the same this year as soon as the sale is live! For now, you can shop my initial picks from the online catalog below!

Since the online catalog opens up today, I am sharing my initial picks for women, men and home below! Items will fly off the shelves once the sale goes live so don’t hesitate on adding that item to your wishlist NOW. This way once the sale opens up to you, you can quickly move your wishlist over to your cart and check!

Don’t forget that Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns so don’t be afraid to load your cart up! Also, if you aren’t sure on size, order both sizes you are between and send the other back! Better to be safe than sorry. Once the sale goes live, check out as fast as possible as leaving something in your basket for more than a few minutes can mean you miss out!

Like every year, Nordstrom cardholders (Icon, Ambassador, and Influencer level) have the opportunity to shop the sale during Early Access. The date of when you get to start shopping is determined by your Nordstrom cardholder status, which is set by your annual purchase amount. If you don’t know what status you are, log in to your Nordstrom account and it should tell you at the top of your home screen!

If you are not a Nordstrom cardholder you can still shop the sale but not until July 15th! If you’re thinking about becoming a Nordstrom cardholder, it’s recommended to sign up before the upcoming sale. That way, you’ll gain early access to the sale and receive a $60 bonus note to shop. This is helpful since alot of items typically sell out well before the sale goes live to noncardholders. That being said, I only encourage you to do so if you can pay off your credit card in full. It’s not chic to go into credit card debt ladies!

NSALE Work Wear Essentials

When I think of the NSALE, I automatically think back to my first couple of years shopping the sale. I would take off from my corporate job the first day that I was able to shop the sale and make a whole day out of it! Of course, my main focus back then was shopping work wear which is why I still love incorporating it as much as possible even if my job looks a little different these days. The sale is a great time to stock up on classic work pumps, slacks and blazers! See above and below for some style inspiration.
