Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is a great opportunity to stock up on marked-down wardrobe basics as summer fades into fall. Don’t miss your chance to grab some steals! We’ve chosen categories of fashion finds WHERE THE GENERATIONS MEET™ to help guide your online shopping for a seasonal closet refresh:

White Blouses

Both Lolli and I have a section in our closet filled with white blouses, since they are a polished outfit staple you can sport alone, with a pretty silk scarf, or as layering pieces year-round. Freshen up your white blouse selection with some of these crisp picks:

1: Lace-Inset Blouse // 2: Flare-Hem Button Down // 3: Ivory Wrap Top

Versatile LBDs

Little Black Dresses are must-have wardrobe staples for Lolli and me. Whether you’re heading to work, a church service, or a cocktail party, a couple of go-to LBDs are always great to have on-hand. You can accessorize this basic beautifully by dressing it up or down with jewelry, shoes, and a sleek handbag to show up with confidence, no matter the occasion. These are three classic cuts on sale for around $100 or less:

1: Ruffled-Sleeve Dress // 2: Bateau-Neck Sheath // 3: Blouson Fit-and-Flare Dress

Classic Trench Coat

I remember when I got my first trench coat on a mother-daughter shopping excursion in NYC. It was a “coming of age” moment around eighth grade when Lolli bought me a Cole Haan version on sale at Saks Fifth Avenue. I balked at the price of this beige basic, and swore I would get a lot more wear out of the miniskirt on the rack next to it, but Lolli promised (and I remember almost her exact words): “This is an investment piece, and classics like this are rarely marked down. You’ll have it forever.” She was right. Best purchase ever. I still have my trench, and it’s served me well–rain or shine–for nearly two decades. Touché, Lolli! Now, you can take mom’s advice, too, and grab yourself one of these timeless toppers for a steal of a deal (all around $150!):

1: Double-Breasted Trench // 2: Hooded Trench Coat // 3: 3-in1 Trench Coat

Denim & Leggings

Well-fitting black pants and jeans are essential to any woman’s wardrobe, especially in the fall and winter months! Nothing is more cozy-cute in cool temps than an outfit of stretchy bottoms with a favorite sweater or blouse and comfortable boots! We honestly don’t like to “splurge” on these items, since we cycle through them. However, when we find a good deal and the size is right, it’s time to buy a fresh pair for the season ahead:

1: Seasonless Black Pants // 2: Slit-hem Skinny Jeans // 3: Bootcut Jeans // 4: High-Rise Black Leggings

Red-y for Fall

Lolli’s favorite color has always been RED, so this vibrant hue is a mainstay in her closet and mine, too, especially during the holiday season. It goes well with our coloring and is festive and fun! Here are some classic cuts to provide a pop of color to your wardrobe mix:

1: Classic Blazer // 2: Belted Jacket // 3: Button-Front Skirt // 4: Midi Shirtdress

Always Accessorize

Last but not least…Keep a few simple accessories on hand, and your wardrobe refresh is complete! Outfits that can go from work to “play” are critical for my mom-on-the-go wardrobe, and I’m always on the lookout for classic staples that will outlast trends. MAMA ALWAYS SAID™ some things are just always in fashion. Nude pumps, bow flats, an everyday bag, your cocktail party clutch and some standard jewelry are purchases where you can’t go wrong. Now, you’re good to go from head to toe!

 1: Nude Pumps // 2: Bow Flats // 3: Leather Tote // 4: Evening Clutch // 5: Diamond Studs
