Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Post Grad Sale Guide

As a post grad girl, there are a few things you need to survive in the adult world. Luckily, the Nordstrom sale is a good opportunity to stock up on business essentials for fall. Today, I wanted to share some good basics and some fun pieces that would be great for anyone who just graduated college, or if you've been out of school a few years but are still looking for cute work and adult appropriate pieces. 

 When it comes to shoes having a nice basic sneaker, nude flat, and a nude heel are essential for an adult wardrobe. Particularly, I love Cole Haan sneakers. I wear them all the time for work! Granite I have a more unique job position where I can be on my feet all day at conventions and shows so having comfortable sneakers that are still appropriate is very handy. This pair from Cole Haan is a great basic to wear with jeans or chino pants for a casual work environment. Nude heels and flats are a no brainer obviously. They go with so much and can also be worn for weddings, cocktail parties, or other grown up events. Once I graduated college I downgraded my 5inch heels for a shorter heel because how in the heck did I ever walk in those?!

 I am here for the blazer trend for this fall. I LOVE a good blazer, not even just for work. You can layer any of these blazers with a button down or blouse for work. Then transition it to casual style by pairing it with jeans, a tee, or even a silk cami. I will say the sale has some super cute blazer options this year.

Okay ladies, I am here to tell you to invest in a NICE coat. No one wants to wear their old bar coat to the office or out with friends. Obviously I will suggest a fabulous Barbour jacket because #shamelessplug. But in all seriousness, Barbour jackets last a lifetime if properly cared for. This is a jacket you can buy now and wear well into your 30's and it will still be classic and in style. They really are a great investment! Plus, they don't go on sale all that often.

 There are some cute dresses and tops included in the sale as well. Nothing super crazy here, but some good options for the office or even for a night out. Some of these would also be cute for a fall wedding!

If you go into a true office, I love some of these pants for work wear. They are more interesting then basic slacks but still professional.

Those are all of the products I'd recommend to post-grads! Again, some great pieces that could be good options for work wear that can also transition out of the office.
