I’ve Lived in NYC, Paris, and L.A.—39 Epic Finds I’d Buy From the Nordstrom Sale

I’ve been lucky enough to live in some of the most incredible cities in the world, at least in my personal opinion—NYC, Paris, and L.A. Each city is a unique place to live with its own local cultures and customs, and similarly, each place has its own take on fashion. Living in each place has opened me up to what makes each spot known for fashion in its own right, and I picked up some ideas about how to dress along the way—with plenty of personal outfits to share.

The fashion lessons I’ve learned have stuck with me. Among them, investing in great basics, curating a tight edit of clothes to fit in small spaces, and styling casual pieces in polished ways. I always use that mindset when I’m shopping and approached it that way when taking a look at the Nordstrom sale pieces that are worth buying. Ahead, 39 that made my cut.

I won’t stop talking about all of the cool leather jackets that are trending now.
