Last year I wrote a post on all the travel goodies I was secretly eyeing on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (yes, they ship to Europe!). A friend of mine asked me–ahem, begged me–for this year’s Anniversary Sale roundup. So, I happily online window shopped and came up with ten items that I’d love for fall and winter travel. The sale begins July 22 and every single item I’ve listed is less than $150. My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wish list for 2016:
The Ultra Healthy Skin travel pouch includes all of my Kiehl’s favorites in travel sizes.
C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve comes in handy for dry lips, chapped hands and other nasty side effects of frequent air travel. I’ve been using it for years. Decades.
There has been a lot of buzz about the Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase–apparently it fights wrinkles and tames frizzy hair. Personally, I like the idea of traveling with my own pillowcase.
The Halogen Cashmere Wrap looks like it would be a lifesaver on long flights and the perfect layer of warmth for chilly nights.
The leather wraparound band on this Michael Kors Brenner Watch is reminiscent of the classic Hermés watch, but the dark face gives it a modern twist. Love it.
Maybe I’m just a 90’s girls at heart, but I think berets are a super sweet in the winter. I badly need a new one and this Halogen Wool Beret comes in six colors!
The Bernardo Textured Wool Coat has classic lines and would be a nice break from my predominantly all-black outerwear. Comes in “evening blue” too.
I love packing one travel dress that can go all day and out to dinner. This Topshop Dot Jacquard Knit Dress could pair with boots and tights for sight-seeing as easily as with heels for a cocktail party. Plus the knit fabric promises no wrinkles in the suitcase.
These Corso Como Over-the-Knee Boots are #1 on my list, the only decision I’m trying to make is whether to get them in sensible black leather or follow my heart and get gray suede. Suede can be tricky, but I swear by Cole Haan’s All-weather Spray Protector.
I was taken by this Street Level Bucket Bag because of its classic shape, hands-free cross body strap and its great price–$31! I wouldn’t worry so much about putting it on the ground of the airplane or spilling toiletries inside at that price.
