Travel Goods: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

For the past two years I’ve written a post on all the travel goods I’m secretly eyeing on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (yes, they ship to Europe!). Nordstrom card holders can begin shopping the sale right now, while us plebeians have to wait until July 21 when it opens to the public. I window shopped online and came up with a list of ten items I’d love to have in my suitcase–all priced for less that $130. Here’s my 2017 list:


The down-filled, quilted anorak is designed to be rolled up and stashed in your carry-on for a trip with unpredictable weather. Genius!


I love the crispness of winter white and I think this slim, cable-knit sweater could be easily packed for the après part of an ski weekend in Switzerland.


San Francisco-based Benefit Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands. Here are all of their cheekily-named bestselling products in travel size. Perfect for a California road trip.


You should always have a bathing suit packed. No matter where you are traveling. I’m all about the one piece this year (ahem, I just had a baby) and this cut looks flattering.


White tee-shirt, jeans and a bandana has been a summer uniform of mine for years. This menswear-inspired silk scarf would work easily into autumn trip to Paris.



A Barbour vest for less than $100? Yes please. Hello Scottish Highlands.



I can’t say enough good things about Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil, so I’m dying to try Keihl’s whole Anti-Aging line offered in this travel kit. Spa weekend, anyone?


I don’t know why wearing a leather jacket makes me feel like a photographer on assignment, but I think this version would be perfect in too-cool Amsterdam.


Too wild for you? I’m prone to wearing all black in the winter, so I think these leopard ankle booties would take my look up a notch when I’m strolling through London.


This Longchamp tote bag is my secret weapon when I’m traveling with a baby. It zips out an extra few inches of space so you can make room for whatever you add along the way.
