The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing and I feel like I’ve looked at every listing. I always have a hard time with thinking about what I want to wear in the next season when I’m so obviously in the current season. For this reason, I try and think of staple pieces that I can wear regardless of season.
Crosshatched Faux Leather Shoulder Bag, Ted Baker London, Sale $76.90, After Sale $129
This minimalist crossbody feels perfect for my trip to London in November. Many times I’ll leave the house without a purse, but when I do need one I prefer it to not be too bulky.
Scented Candle Set, diptyque, Sale $55, After Sale $75
Being an engaged person, I have several upcoming events that will be hosted in my honor. I love the idea of giving one of these famous candles to my generous hostesses.
‘Jolette’ Penny Loafer, SARTO by Franco Sarto, Sale $69.90, After Sale $108.95
I can confidently say that Franco Sarto is my downright favorite shoe designer. They’re well made, affordable and classic. I need a workhorse pair of shoes that can go with dresses and pants and share the spotlight with my favorite oxfords purchased from a street sale at a Clarks in Ireland.
‘Breck’ Faux Leather Moto Jacket, cupcakes and cashmere, Sale $96.90, After Sale $145
As a long-time fan of the blog, I haven’t yet indulged in buying any of Emily’s clothing line. A black faux leather jacket can be dressed up or dressed down and I’ve been searching high and low for one for forevs. I want to pull the trigger on this one because of the shoulder detailing and lack of zippers on the sleeves (my pet peeve!).
