It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeeeeaaar! No, I’m not talking Christmas, although the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is kind of like Christmas in July.
Early access for cardholders started yesterday and I found some great Kate and Meghan-inspired looks. I’ve thrown a few splurge pieces into this post, but I was surprised at the number of things I found for under $30!
July 20 update: Now that the sale is live to the public, I’ve added some new items and updated some others due to sell-outs. Remember, the special anniversary deals go away and the items go back to regular price on August 6.
Get Kate’s Look
Looking for a replikate for the Zara biker jeans the Duchess of Cambridge has sported a few times? These super soft olive moto leggings from BP are just $25.90 ($39 after the sale). They have a high waistband, kind of similar to a maternity legging – which is NOT a bad thing. Since I already have a very similar pair of these in green, I ended up buying them in black instead.
I also bought the Leith ribbed shawl cocoon sweater I’m wearing in the above pic, and you definitely need to size way down in this. I typically wear a small or extra small depending on the brand, and I’m wearing a XXS and it still had room! It’s super soft and cozy and I’ll be wearing this a lot over the cooler months.
We know Kate loves a powder blue coat. This Ted Baker coat isn’t cheap ($384.90) but it’s almost $200 off in the sale and gives off major royal vibes! You’ll pay $575 when the anniversary sale is over, so if you’re willing to splurge on a coat, grab it now! July 20 update: The blue is now sold out, but the coat is still available in green.
These Nadri round CZ earrings are amazing dupes for Kate’s Kiki McDonough studs and only $24.90! They’ll go up to $38 after sale. I have a very similar pair I got years ago at TJ Maxx or I would have purchased them.
Kate frequently wears navy blazers, and this J. Crew Dover Blazer is a really nice quality. I saw it in the store and forgot to snap a picture, but I would definitely say to size down as it’s on the slouchier side. It’s $131.90 but will go up to $198 once the sale is over.
Kate’s a big fan of Aquatalia boots, and you can get a serious deal on the brand in the Anniversary Sale. This Letizia weatherproof boot is $329.90, but normally priced at $495. You can find a shorter Aquatalia bootie style in the sale as well.
I’m obsessed with the Baublebar line of earrings, and these Genevieve hoops remind me of Kate’s Robinson Pelham pair that she wore in Sweden last year. Even better, they’re not $7,000! You can get these for $24.90, or $38 after the sale. I loved the burgundy tassels, too.
July 20 update: The above pair is sold out in clear, but still available in 2 colored styles. However, I found this Nadri teardrop pair online that look even closer to Kate’s earrings! They’re just a bit more expensive than the Baublebar earrings at $35.90.
Kate used Bobbi Brown makeup on her wedding day, and there are some fantastic deals on this brand in the sale. The Mini Glow Set is only $32 and includes a smaller version of Bobbi Brown’s iconic Shimmer Brick, along with a brush.
Get Meghan’s Look
Also in the not cheap but still a deal category – this Theory McClair plaid off the shoulder jacket. It’s a just slightly different black-and-white plaid than the Theory top Meghan wore earlier this year, but the same style! It’s $329.90 in the sale, and goes up to $495 after. July 20 update: the only size remaining is 00 so if that’s your size, get it ASAP!
This BP stitched faux leather tote makes a good stand-in for Meghan’s Everlane day market bag – and it’s under $30!
Meghan loves a crawler-style earring, and these Nadri ear crawlers are really fun and affordable at $29.90. They come in a variety of metal colors if you’re not into yellow gold.
Meghan is definitely a fan of the black trouser, and according to the Daily Mail, online searches for black trousers increased by 40% this year after Meghan was spotted wearing them on several engagements. Meghan has a great pair of cropped Alexander McQueen trousers, but these Vince Camuto skinny ankle pants are a steal at $58.90 (they’re normally $89!).
Meghan has mentioned her love for Jo Malone fragrances in the past (Kate wore Jo Malone on her wedding day, too!). But if you don’t want to splash out $136 on an ounce of perfume you can grab this Jo Malone London Discover Collection for $45 in the sale.
Meghan favors delicate, minimalistic yellow gold bracelets, and this Nadri Geo station bracelet gives you a similar look for a fraction of the price. It’s only $29.90 in the sale but will go up to $45 on August 6. It’s also offered in rose gold or silver.
One more Meghan-inspired bracelet! Meghan and Harry were pictured wearing matching turquoise beaded bracelets in the early days of their relationship. This set of three 18k gold-plate and genuine jade stretch bracelets by Gorjana gives you a similar look and it’s available in 3 colorways. Grab one for $62.98 in the sale ($95 regular price).
Finally, I found a great black dress that was very Meghan, but it sold out before I was able to get this post up! It goes to show that the deals go fast in the Anniversary Sale, so don’t wait if you see a must-have item.
