Blazers are the workhorse of my fall wardrobe. I hoard styles in houndstooth, velvet, boucle, tweed, herringbone, plain old wool, etc. I don’t discriminate against colors either – earth tones, bright hues and plaid all make the cut too. Single-breasted, double-breasted, peplum, cropped, or long, I have never met a style I didn’t like.
With fall creeping up on us (I know – crazy!), I must admit that I am a teensy bit excited to trade in my seersucker for something cozier. (Think cashmere sweaters, smart blazers, silk blouses and tartan everything!) Enter the phenomenal Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, a pre-fall sale that offers gorgeous cool weather pieces at a steep discount. It is the perfect excuse to get a head start on your fall wardrobe. But, like Cinderella, there is a clock on it. This is the last weekend to shop the sale before everything reverts to full price. (Eek!)
