Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Workwear Guide + Best Under $100

This is kind of a random round-up for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, right?  But, this is all based upon your feedback and I want you to get the most of it!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Office-Friendly Picks

Halogen pleated skirt – What a fun departure from your pencil skirt and wool trousers!  I would wear this to my current ‘creative’ office AND to my former business casual/professional office.  With the latter, I’d pair it with a silk blouse or a fitted turtleneck.  (PS it’s under $50)

Halogen lace pencil skirt – It’s fun to change it up in the office with demure silhouettes in unexpected fabrications. This would look amazing with a crewneck camel sweater for an unexpected twist (and would look amazing with black, navy, white button-up, etc).

Emerson Rose wide-leg pants – When I want to be a boss, I wear a wide-leg pant; it makes me feel powerful.  These would be great with a blazer, of course or a plain sweater/blouse and some fun jewelry.

Halogen knit kick-flare – I love the silhouette on these; its fun and adds a little zest into your work wardrobe.  The navy color is so basic but fresher than black.

Vince Camuto pleat-front blouse – This blush color is so fresh for all year round.  It’d look great with every pant listed, too!

Theory bell sleeve top – A beautiful silk-georgette combined with an on-trend sleeve and the result is magic.  This top is the definition from desk to dinner, too.  Tuck it in with high-waisted pants and leave it untucked with skinnier bottoms.

Halogen sleeve ruffle dress – Your favorite sheath fit with a fabulous sleeve detail.  You’d totally nail it in the boardroom and everyone will be thinking, ‘wow, she looks amazing!’

Vince Camuto herringbone blazer – Who can resist a herringbone in the fall?  Not this girl.  It’s slightly boxy and full chic.  Wear it with a sheath black dress or a black turtleneck and skinny pants.

Sam Edelman ankle-strap pump – I think I love these because they look exactly like Jimmy Choo shoes.  Again, the ankle strap gives the shoe an unexpected detail for the work place.  AND they’re under $100.  AND the heel height is 3″ so you don’t have to worry about falling over.

Dana Rebecca earrings – You work hard, dammit.  And you deserve a subtle, yet chic earring that you can wear every day.  They’re office appropriate yet chic enough to spark intrigue so I bet you everyone asks where you bought them.

Halogen silk scarf – Tie it on your bag, around your neck or throw over your shoulders; it’s impossible to not look chic (double negative?) when wearing a silk scarf.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks Under $100

No collage for these little guys.  They’re honestly just random things that I have or recommend or already buy myself.  Most are under $50, too!

Diptyque candle set – You ever smell Feu de Bois?  Life changing.

Zella barre socks – I’m stocking up on these babies; barre socks are expensive so I’m nabbing them when they’re 40% off.

Alo sweatshirt – Sweatshirts are huge for fall and this one has awesome netting in the back and would look awesome with jeans or workout pants.

Rails plaid top – Every gal needs a plaid top for fall or to wear now with jean shorts.  Rails makes the softest button-downs..they’re addicting.

Zella open knee leggings – Yep, got these for barre class and lazy weekends with my boys.

Hanky Panky high rise briefs – My friends make fun of me because I love these underwear and they are truly a high rise (which is odd in underwear).  I need a break from thongs sometimes (but they do come in thong form) and love to wear these when a panty line won’t show.  I always buy them when they’re on sale.

Happy shopping this weekend!



  1. Hi Anna – great post! I was wondering are there any neutral color (beige)loafer you would recommend for a business casual outfit from the nsale? Thanks! 🙂
