Enticing new sale items have appeared at Nordstrom

Before we begin, a quick sidenote: Anthropologie has made its sale an extra 40% off! Get all my picks in this very recent post.

Not to be outdone by any other retailer, Nordstrom has added a beautiful bounty of new items to its sale section at up to 40% off. Plenty of the markdowns are Summer leftovers but just a little bit of hunting reveals Fall favorites that have been marked down too. You’ll find everything from trendy items like the Ruffle Sleeve Sweater (now $42, above and in 4 colors) to classic pieces like the Belted Fit & Flare Dress (now $77).

For me many of the new markdown delights are in dresses, where plenty of layering-ready pieces await. I can easily see wearing a blazer, long cardigan or sweater over the likes of the gorgeous white-on-black printed High Neck Embroidered Midi Dress (now $45) or the similarly shaped floral-on-black Floral Square Neck Midi Dress (now $37) as well as on the mocknecked and fun swingy Plissé Pleat Shift Dress (now $42, loooooove the lavender!). More classic shapes like wrap dresses await in items like the Olivia Wrap Dress (now $30) which comes in two solid colors or a pretty patterned version.

When you’re ready to layer over those lovelies you’ve got lots of options in sale. I’d begin with a cardigan, where the Long Ribbed Cashmere Cardigan (now $199) stands out of the crowd. It’s an investment to be sure but considering the high customer ratings, timeless design and multitude of colors available, I think it’s a worthy one. That cardigan is pretty sleek; if you prefer something more oversized and modern then the I’ll Be Around Cardigan (now $77) is the one I’d point you to.

Wanting a more sleek top layer? You could do a blazer like the Tweed Peplum Jacket (now $190), or perhaps a very chic quilted leather jacket in the Quilted Leather Moto Jacket (now $335). I am of course enamored with this minty blue-green Leather Moto Jacket (now $570), but also really liking the warm green Do It Right Faux Suede Moto Jacket (now $112).

From shoes to bags to clothing, more sale picks below in my boutique! What will tempt you in Nordstrom’s sale today?

        Hmm it is showing for me, is it certain items that it's not showing for?

        For me the percentage off applied to the clothing items in my shopping cart, but not for the accessories. I had to call after I placed the order and they gave me a price adjustment.

      Yay! I included a few here but you're right, major denim markdowns happened today.

    I rarely shop on the Nordstrom site because I find the selection a little overwhelming, but I enjoyed browsing these sale picks. Thanks!

      I'm so glad to hear that Melanie! I agree, the selection at Nordstrom is totally overwhelming. I do a lot of filtering in their sections to make it easier to hunt through.
