There will be no NAS for us here in Canada. I used to buy a few things from Nordstrom during NAS and miss it a bit. Fortunately, COS had a great sale in June-July as well as some of my other favorite brands. I took advantage and bought a lot but I was strategic about it. I wasn’t interested in summer items, I have enough for this season and although Massimo Dutti had many nice things for the warm weather, I kept my eye to the season ahead. I went back to basics in colors and types. I bought one wild card - a cobalt merino sweater dress. I know how uninspired I feel in the middle of a winter and to add some fun, I bought two cashmere hats in unusual for me colors. I tried orange sweater and a matching hat but chickened out.

I also bought gloves, they are very nice, lined with cashmere and incredibly soft but they looked mixed with black in store, they are actually in parts dark brown. I don’t wear brown so unsure about it.
#1 COS dress
#2 & 3 COS coat and jacket - I have similar garments already and these are not replacing them. I wear my older coat and jacket to a gym and a pool daily in fall/spring and they are now strictly gear.
#4 COS black thin wool pants, a replacement for older worn out pair. I have these ones also in ink color and happy with them.
#5 COS mixed wool sweater in cool beige and cream. Like the shorter length, a good find for petite me.
#6 & 7 striped hat is from COS and green one is from Aritzia. Both are cashmere. The striped one has a top in black yarn, which is comforting for me
#8 Finally, loafers that don’t hurt my feet! Have high hopes for these ones from Club Monaco.
With the exception of the Aritzia hat, all clothes and shoes were bought from stores. I don’t provide links, these were sales items and mostly gone already.
Shopping NAS is often about next seasons. Are you looking forward to buy new fall/winter clothes and shoes? Any inspirations?
