The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! This year we went “back to basics” and included some must have closet staples. With a few new pairs of jeans & leggings, easy to wear tops, and comfortable shoes, everything here is perfect for mixing and matching with each other and with things that you already own.

This year we also picked out a few pieces for guys! Whether you’re shopping for a boyfriend, brother, or friend, he’ll love adding a little something to his closet that he wouldn’t normally pick out himself. The sale only happens once a year, and things tend to sell out fast. Scroll through and snag your favorites before they’re gone – enjoy, xo!
