What to buy on the off season

Feb 16, 2016

Off season buying is always hard. On one hand you are loving the pieces that you are buying and you can't possibly wait until the appropriate season to wear them. But, if you do it right, you are getting a really awesome piece at a great price that will last you season after season. If you happen to live in a cold weather climate, like myself, you might have a couple more months of layering weather. But it seems like my social media timelines are filling up with warmer weather photos. Never mind all that, the sales going on right now are amazing! With spring collections rolling out, now is the time to buy that winter piece you maybe held off on. Normally I would be scooping up so many new jackets and boots, but since we are fleeing the winters of Alaska, I decided to put together a little round up of the best buys for the off-season.
off season shopping list
Nordstrom is obviously one of my favorite places for all my shopping needs. And their 40% off winter style event is happening now. 

I will admit that I got this denim jacket pictured above, because that is one item you can never go wrong with. Denim. Now is the time to buy any and all denim on sale. 

Also a classic piece is a trench. This can be worn for spring, and then brought back out for the fall. I am loving the classic khaki trench, and also this longline color blocked version. And if you really want to kick your coat game up, this faux fur number is to die for! 

An anorak jacket is a staple in the cold weather department. Now is sersiously the best time to buy your jacket for next year. Anoraks, or parkas really never change their look, so buying one now will not put a damper on any winter trends. 

The same goes for leather jackets. Or faux leather. Such a closet staple, and right now there are so many on sale. I love this deconstructed take on it, or the classic moto, and why not even go with a colored leather? All pieces you can wear now, and later. 

Boots are always a good buy. Uggs have made a huge comeback and you can find a few styles on sale now, like these or these. Suede booties are also a great buy for spring and even summer. Paired with a cute sun dress or cut offs, and then carry them right back into fall. I love all the fringe options, and the colors that are on sale. 

Hats prices right now are amazing! This is something that I usually stock up on for the kids. Beanies are like a fraction of the price, so grab all the cute ones now! Fedoras, and floppy hats are also seasonal main stays, so you can't go wrong with getting a few. 

Have you been shopping any of the sales? There were so many good ones over the long weekend!
