As you all know, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is always a hit — it’s one of those rare sales in which the upcoming season’s styles are on sale. Usually items go on sale at the end of the season, so you only get a few wears out of them before the weather changes and they get packed away for next year (or, if they’re super trendy, get donated!).
BUT . . . many retailers are jumping on the pre-season bandwagon, and the sales are super good! Below are a few sales going on right now — with my picks for each! Don’t wait though, many of these sales are really short (unlike the three week long NSale). For example, Ann Taylor’s sale only runs through tonight! So get moving ladies!
I hope you’re having a great week all!
SHOP the SALE // ANN TAYLOR
Absolutely loving all the details in Ann Taylor’s pre-fall collection: florals, pleats, ruffles, bell sleeves, piping, etc., but always clean and classic. It’s no wonder, Ann is one of my go-to stores for work and other business casual occasions. I just purchased this pleated collar top in cream (also available in a gorgeous magnolia print here) that I wore with tuxedo joggers to a rehearsal dinner … the compliments kept coming! And all the scarves they’re showcasing right now … omg, someone needs to stop me … amazing. I also just purchased this one, and this, this, and this one are currently in my shopping cart!

SHOP the SALE // BANANA REPUBLIC
Basics and dresses are the name of the game here! This sale is primarily focused on tees, sweaters, and blouses. There are some amazing button-downs on sale right now — love this floral one, and this bow neck one! And this sweater, I think I may purchase one in every single color!
Add in some gorgeous dresses (my obsession with florals continues with this one, this pinstripe one = work perfection, and in need of a little black number, look no further: here), and a few extras — this suede bag is THE perfect little cross-body for fall, and this brooch … hello, I love you.
Time to stock up ladies …
SHOP the SALE // J CREW
J Crew’s week of style sale will equip you with everything you need for work, meetings, or school — suiting, tops (in love with this one), and a great selection of pants and jeans (check out these, these, and these). Plus, they throw in some fun extras that are quintessentially J Crew: luxe colorful suede shoes (witness these), jewelry with chunky, multi-colored gems (these beauties), and the iconic “Tippi” sweater here (again, I think I need one in every color)!
SHOP the SALE // LOFT
Loft is a great stop if you’re looking for the three Cs: cheap, colorful, and comfortable. They always have pretty colors, interesting prints, and the cuts are generally roomy and forgiving (perfect for lounge-y days). And the prices — always great, and they almost always have some sort of sale or promotion going on. See below for a few of my current favorites.
