The Nordstrom Sale is open to the public today! This means, you can score Fall 2018 items (as in, this season) for 30-50% off their regular retail prices. The sale runs until August 5, so you need to hurry before prices go up. I’ve rounded up the best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items for Professional women, including suits, dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories.
Last year, I shopped the sale, and got the most use out of my Halogen pieces and my beloved Kate Spade Cavell pink suede loafers (as seen here and here). I wanted to share similar items that are perfect for professionals, so you can shop the sale with confidence, or find the perfect articling interview outfit. Without further delay, here are my best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items for Professional women in 2018.

The Olivia Burton Signature Floral Mesh Strap Watch, 38mm, Sale:CAD 138.67 Original Price After Sale: CAD 208.21 features an elegant rose gold mesh design that’s thin enough to keep on while you work at your computer! I have a couple of Olivia Burton’s watches, and always receive compliments. I think it’s an excellent way to add some femininity into your work wardrobe.
2. The Ted Baker London Iguazu Square Silk Scarf, Sale: CAD 115.07 Original Price After Sale: CAD 173.51, is the perfect accessory for layering over a simple sweater, or adding some glam to a plain grey suit. I love silk scarves and this one has gorgeous photo-realistic florals.

6. Grey SinglePass® Curl 1.25-Inch Curling Iron by T3, CAD 148.52 ($160 Value), is a beauty tool that will be worth its weight in gold. I Have a T3 Iron and love how it has auto-shutoff (in case you’re paranoid), and that it heats up and curls my hair in a flash. I also find my curls last longer, so I’m able to curl my hair only 1-2 per week instead of every day. I love this grey iron, which is very mature and classy!
7. The Pretty Pink Lipstick Set by Charlotte Tilbury, CAD 83.28 ($90 Value) comes with a Gift with Purchase, is a lovely, exclusive collection of Charlotte’s famous lip products. I can’t live without my Matte Revolution Lipsticks, and this shade, Rose Kiss is an exclusive to the sale.
8. The Daphne Flower Home Ambiance Diffuser by Antica Farmacista, Sale: CAD 61.07–CAD 87.45 Original Price After Sale: CAD 91.61–CAD 130.48, is a gorgeous reed diffuser that is perfect for your closet or in your office. I found my office to always have stale air, and a reed diffuser releases a gentle scent to freshen things up!
