    I'm not sure how *you* feel about fall, but I've already mentally gone there and started drinking all-things-pumpkin-spice and surrounding myself with candles scented like leaves and apples.

    ^how I'd like you to think of me from now through November.

    Even if you're *not* there yet, I'd like to invite you to join me in jumpstarting the upcoming season by shopping the epic Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (running from now through August 30) with must-have items for fall!

    1. A mock neck Madewell top with bubble sleeves you can easily pair with any jeans you've already got in your closet — there won't be any overthinking your outfits this autumn.


    Price: $34.90 (originally $55, available in sizes 2XS–2XL, 2X–3X, and three colors)

    2. Nike's React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe, a must-have for anyone who is looking to pick up their outdoor running game now that it's finally starting to cool down.

    Promising review: "I have struggled finding the right running shoe for years — I have had several knee surgeries and finding the right shoe that reduces impact of the pavement is imperative. This. shoe. is. it. It feels like running on clouds while still supporting your ankle and arches. I was worried the fly knit material wouldn't be supportive but it holds my feet in place, fits like a sock but isn't too tight. Not to mention these shoes are super cute when out and about in athleisure or casual denim. Definitely recommend!" —Lwest88

    Price: $120 (originally $160, available in sizes 5–11)

    3. Zella high waist leggings that'll become a staple in your wardrobe whether you pair them with an oversized sweater for a day out or your go-to pajama shirt for a Netflix binge-sesh.

    Promising review: "Hands down the best leggings! Nice thick material so they are not see through. I love the higher waist — it holds everything in. I’m 5’8” and these are the perfect full length. The last four years now I’ve gotten a new pair every year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Still worth full price in my opinion. My usual size is a 8/10, I size up to a large and they are great." —kaitnett

    Price: $38.90 (originally $59, available in sizes 2XS–XL and two colors)

    4. A V-neck sweater from Chelsea28 with a touch of cashmere in it, so you'll probably want to live in it from now until spring.

    Promising review: "This sweater is so soft and pretty. It’s perfect with jeans or leggings. I love the v neck which is not too low and not too high! I have in black and will be purchasing other colors!" —NannyZee

    Price: $45.90 (originally $69, available in sizes 2XS–2XL and three colors)

    5. A Tory Burch leather crossbody bag with gold accents that'll look *darling* with you autumnal-colored wardrobe.


    Promising review: "This bag is so cute and functional. Great for fall. Also, I like the leather quality. Won't scratch. Only complaint is if you fill too much the magnets open." —StylistaStL

    Price: $299.90 (originally $498)

    6. A Yves Saint Laurent lipstick set featuring nude and muted red shades you'll be able to wear all season long — you might even want to just leave 'em out on display, the tubes are so pretty!

    the two YSL lipsticsk in gold tubes with the YSL logo on them

    I personally have a number of YSL lipsticks and can attest they are fantastic. The nude is a great neutral/pink option while the red isn't *too* bright — they're both a great option for fall (and all year, TBH!). The tubes are also stunning, I'd honestly plan decorating an entire bathroom around them.

    Promising review: "YSL comes through again with super lustrous sheer duo. The nude offers a touch of sparkle and bare color and the chili is awesome with that wonderful sheer color not too red; just a hint of brown. I love the feel; looks like a gloss but does not run like a gloss. Love the feel and look. Thanks again YSL." —DARLass

    Price: $48 (originally $76)

    7. A faux leather moto jacket from BlankNYC, because fall might as well be known as "jacket season," amiright?


    Promising review: "This jackets looks and feels like leather. The details are perfect and the cognac is the perfect shade." —Gibster

    Price: $56.90 (orignally $90, available in sizes XS–XL and two colors)

    8. Chic mules made by Treasure and Bond you can wear right out of the box without fear of any ankle blisters (score!) and count on to be a great option while transitioning from summer to fall.

    I invested in these leggings last year and couldn't be happier. They take my standard fall uniform of an oversized sweater and leggings and make it actually seem fashionable.

    Promising review: "After hearing so many great things about these leggings I decided to order because of the fantastic anniversary price. They do run small, so order a size up. Once on, they are extremely comfortable and not hot at all. I can’t wait to wear these when the weather cools down!" —noleg

    Price: $64.90 (originally $98, available in sizes XS–XL)

    12. Marc Fisher booties with a pointed toe and a stacked heel that'll make you feel like a true fall fashionista as you strut your stuff to go pick up a pumpkin spice latte.

    Price: $99.90 (originally $189.95, available in sizes 5–12 and four styles)

    13. Cat-eye sunglasses from Quay Australia you can keep on-hand during your venture to the pumpkin patch to shield your eyes from everyone stopping to take selfies with their gourds (guilty).

    tortoise shell cat-eye sunglasses

    Price: $35.90 (originally $55)

    14. A fleece pullover made by Thread and Supply that'll help you battle the ever-changing temperatures of autumn — trust me, you'll need all the help you can get.

    Promising review: "I am going to LIVE in this come the colder months. So warm and cozy. The fit runs a little large, but not bad. Love the leopard details on the pockets too!" —MollyPhil

    Price: $45.90 (originally $78, available in sizes XS–L and two styles)

    15. A set of tiny Diptyque candles to bring the coziest of fall vibes into every room of your home.

    five glass candles

    Promising review: "These are small which I knew because I buy them every year. I save them for the bathroom or guest room when guests visit and always like having them on hand for surprise gift occasions. You don’t need to burn them long for the scent to linger and oh my! The scent WILL linger. These also make great gifts when you’re in a pinch. Throw this and face sheet mask in a bag for an easy girlfriend gift." —KMilly

    Price: $55 (originally $75)

    16. Combat boots from BP to help you embrace your inner-badass and fight the good fight against muddy apple orchards and slippery fallen leaves.

    black lace-up combat boots

    I just ordered these and I cannot wait to wear them!

    Promising review: "This combat boot is the perfect amount of '90s with a modern twist. I love that you can get some height with the heel, but the shoe still feels super comfortable so far. I ordered my true size, 8, and they are comfortable and feel roomy enough to wear with socks." —JoHJay

    Price: $59.90 (originally $129.95, available in sizes 5–12 and two colors)

    17. A Rails' plaid shirt that'll be begging you to take it out on a romp through a pumpkin patch the moment it arrives on your doorstep.

    a model in a smoky blue flannel

    Promising review: "These Rails plaid shirts are incredibly soft, that subtly put forth a polished vibe. At $99 during the Anniversary sale, they’re well worth it. As with most nice blouses, you need to treat it with care — lay it down to dry or use dry cleaning, otherwise they will pill. They’re thin enough to wear year round and not get hot indoors. The onyx ash color looks great in person — very neutral and goes with any color T-shirt underneath. Having black hair, black clothes normally 'weighs' me down, however this combo looks great IMHO." —diver9

    Price: $99.90 (originally $158, available in sizes 2XS–XL and four styles)

    18. A faux fur Sam Edelman teddy bear coat, so even when you *do* venture out you'll have no problem continuing to feel like you're wrapped up in your warmest blanket.

    Price: $99 (originally $169, available in sizes S–2XL and two colors)

    19. Resin hoop earrings from Madewell to add an extra *somethin', somethin'* to your favorite fall fashions from last year.

    Price: $19.90 (originally $34, available in three styles)

    20. Hunter rain boots you'll pat yourself on the back for purchasing now when you find yourself in the middle of a very wet, slippery fall day.

    matte black short rubber boots

    Promising review: "I bought mine online and I’m glad I got my actual size (US8) because it fits perfectly with jeans/tights. I got the short boots because I prefer more mobility in my legs and I can wear thicker socks too. They definitely kept my feet dry and warm." —bcnmarielp

    Price: $89.90 (originally $145, available in sizes 5–11)

    21. An open stitch cardigan from BP you can curl up in whether you're headed out to a socially distant brunch or watching Hocus Pocus on repeat.

    23. Spanx OnCore Mid Thigh Shaper Shorts, perfect for to help you smooth out, as John Legend would say, "your curves and all your edges," under your fave autumnal dress.

    Price: $41.90 (originally $64, available in sizes S–XL and two colors)

    24. A chunky knit DKNY blanket that'll make all the cozy daydreams you've had about lighting a candle and hunkering down to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas a reality.

    Price: $55.90 (originally $79.99, available in two colors)

    25. A hooded raincoat from The North Face to ensure you'll always be prepared during an unplanned sprinkle on your walk home.


    Promising review: "I've been searching for the perfect rain coat, and definitely found it! Its lightweight, but keeps you warm and dry. Also, I read that it runs small but I'd say it definitely runs true to size! I'm between a med/large and ordered a medium and it's perfect! You can even wear a sweatshirt underneath. :) Highly recommend!!" —Mineralmakeup

    Price: $84.90 (originally $120, available in sizes XS–XL and three colors)

    26. Madewell bootcut jeans with a button down closure, so you can tuck in a basic tee and let the denim be the star of the show during your inevitable photoshoot in the foliage.

    blue slightly cropped denim jeans with copper buttons down the middle

    Promising review: "These are sooo comfortable. They hold their shape. I am 5'2" and they hit me right at the ankles. They look like straight leg on me. I am so happy with my purchase. They look fantastic with my sandals and I can't wait to wear them with my new loafers once the weather cools. I also think they will look good with my new combat boots." —Malibugirl

    Price: $84.90 (originally $128, available in sizes 23–37)

    27. A mock shift dress from Topshop in a leopard print you'll want as to add to your autumn apparel *right meow*.

    Price: $39.90 (originally $75, available in sizes 2–14)

    28. An off-the-shoulder Leif sweater that'll let you show off what's left of your summer tan.


    Promising review: "Great anniversary sale find! I got this in the pink and in a small. It fit great, and is even fitted enough to wear tucked in or untucked. The material is soft and the off shoulder detail works great." —CourtMB

    Price: $38 (originally $59, available in sizes 2XS–XL and five colors)

    29. And Nordstrom's Moonlight Dream Pajamas, because you deserve to really pamper yourself this season and embrace all the cozy vibes fall has to offer.


    Promising review: "Soft, beautiful pajamas that work for both sleeping and working from home on days with no Zoom calls. Runs a bit big. I am a 14 to 16 and the large is fine. Not a big fan of solid colors so I would love to see some more prints. Definitely a great purchase heading into fall." —madams8821

    Price: $39.90 (originally $65, available in sizes S–L and three styles)

    If you weren't mentally prepared for autumn now, I bet you are now after seeing what lovely items you can snag (discounted!) during Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale! Now if you'll excuse me, I have 10 sweaters to add to my cart.
