Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Teacher Picks & Classroom to Weekend Looks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open for a few more days! Have you shopped the sale? I’ve definitely taken advantage of the sale picking up new items for fall and winter. My favorite thing to shop for during the sale though is back to school. It’s a great time to stock up on new pieces for your classroom wardrobe!

Today I am sharing my teacher picks including some classroom to weekend outfit ideas! You will notice that my classroom style involves lots of basics and layering pieces that can be mixed and matched. My school is pretty laid back, so my staples include non-distressed denim, booties, mules, cardigans and basic tops. Think of this as outfit inspiration and re-create any of these looks by adding your own touches! Don’t forget to check out my other post of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases that also include some classroom appropriate outfits and a full shoe review!

FYI: I am 5’3 and usually a xs/s in tops and a 25 in bottoms. My shoe size is 7!

If you can wear denim in the classroom, this is a great pair of non-distressed that are easy to move in. These will be great for the beginning of the school year!

Steve Madden Trace Studded Mules (NOW: $50 // AFTER SALE: $80 ): I LOVE these mules! I know I’ve mentioned it multiple times, but mules are my go to shoe for the classroom. They are super comfortable and easy to wear and I love that I can take them from the classroom to date night or a weekend outing. I am going to try and snag these in another color during public access (currently eyeing the mustard or snakeskin!).

Free People Cardigan (NOW: $99 // AFTER SALE: $148 // SIZE: XS/S ): I purchased this cardigan last fall and literally lived in it all fall, winter and spring! I was so excited to see it was part of the sale and in 3 colors, this grey, a black and wine color (which I purchased). This cardi is definitely a splurge piece but SO worth it! One of the top worn pieces in my closet from last year! It does run big…size down!

BP Plaid Shirt (NOW: $32 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: XS)

AG ‘Prima’ Skinny Jeans (NOW: $144 // AFTER SALE: $215 // SIZE: 25 ): AG jeans are notoriously comfortable and high quality. They don’t bag out in the knees or stretch out after a few wears. I love the darker wash and think if denim is allowed in your work place, these are the jeans for the job! Teacher friends, these are my top pick for the classroom. I know they are on the pricier side, but I wore my other AG’s ALL of the time last year. These are flexible (for all those times you spend kneeling at a desk or sitting down on the floor) and super comfortable!

August is just around the corner and for me that means it’s time to start thinking back to school. With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in full swing, it’s been the perfect time to stock up on some pieces for the classroom. The only problem is, I’m super impatient and want to wear all of my sale finds now! Anybody else struggle with waiting for it to cool off to wear your cool new back to school duds? This is something that hasn’t changed. I distinctly remember being in elementary school and pulling out my new denim and sweaters to wear on the first day despite the 80 to 90 degree temps. Impatient much? Please tell me I’m not the only one who did this!!

Luckily, while shopping the sale I’ve been able to snag pieces that I can wear now before transitioning into the classroom in the fall! This top in particular has been one of my favorite finds. I loved this one so much that I snagged it in a few colors! It’s light-weight enough to wear on a cooler summer evening, but pairs perfectly with denim and a cardi for the fall. This top is only $32 and one that has been overlooked during the Nsale as it’s still FULLY stocked in ALL sizes!

Wearing this cutie in a size small now with my favorite cutoffs and easy mules. Scroll down to see how I would wear it for a casual Friday at work! Looking for more summer to work Nsale outfits? Check out how I styled the cutest dress 3 ways here!
