Tag Archives: nordstrom anniversary sale

Was very excited to get home last night to 4 large Nordstrom packages! So now I can give you all better advice on what I actually liked and sizing etc.

First up this adorable tunic off the shoulder sweater – loved it! I actually ordered it in the black and white stripe as well but love this orange color. I’m wearing a medium here. As expected also love the black Articles of Society jeans, a stretchy waistband is a must for me when it comes to pants and these fit the bill. Wearing a size 27, suggest sizing down one from usual, they will stretch a bit.


Next up, these chic Corso Como pumps. I wear black pumps a lot in the fall and winter so these are a keeper. The heel isn’t too high and there is lots of padding for comfort. I took an 8.5 so would say these are true to size.


We all know I’m a sucker for yellow, although this cute sweatercomes in a number of colors. Definitely not as bright as it looks in the online picture though. I love the scallop detailing as well. Keeper! Wearing a medium.


Here is the famous Barefoot Dreams cardigan and it is sooooo soft, definitely a winner. Will be very cozy when the chilly weather sets in and really cute with boots! I’m wearing the xs/s, but hoping to order the medium as well to see which I like best. The sleeves are on the snug side and wouldn’t fit over a long sleeve shirt. You might also like this hooded version!

I was so excited to try this gorgeous wrap coat but unfortunately it just didn’t work for me. The color is beautiful but I just didn’t think it was going to warm enough for Chicago winters, and I found the oversize collar a bit restricting of my shoulders. Wearing a medium here.

I fell in love immediately with this velvet swimsuit / body suit. The off the shoulder detail is so cute and there is plenty of support if you are busty, which can be hard to find in one pieces! Hit the pool in this or wear it with jeans as a bodysuit. I am usually an 8 in swimwear, which is what I’m wearing here, but I ordered this to try in a 6 as well, I feel like that might fit better.

This romper is one of my favorite finds! It will be so cute with tights and booties when the weather cools down too. This is juniors, I’m wearing a large.

I didn’t love either this sweatshirt (although may have just been too small), or the jogger pants, but they were both very comfy and soft. Going back.

Here is another cute find I ordered, Socialite blouse for just $22.90


Happy Shopping!


Sooooo, Nordstrom was a hot mess yesterday… not exactly the kind of experience I was hoping for but I guess that’s how it goes! A lot of the things the site had said were available in store were either gone or impossible to find. Oh well, I went back and placed another online order. Here is what I was able to try on though with my notes, and I will do another post once my orders arrive.

These Sam Edelman boots are GORGEOUS… if you have small calves. To my friend Alicia, buy these immediately. I wouldn’t say I have large calves, but these are made for people with pretty small ones, not those of us average calf bearers.

 

I also really loved these Cole Haan wedges but this brand runs a little narrow and the ankle strap was too tight on me. So if you have petite ankles, scoop these up.

I found this Eliza J dress and I had to have it. This color is beautiful and will work with black tights in the cooler months. I’m wearing a 6 so I would say it’s true to size. Also left my heels at work, whoops.

 

Found this cute Maggy London dress, but they only had it a 10. I would say that I would need an 8 in this, so maybe runs a tad small, it doesn’t have as much stretch as one above.

I was on the hunt for the black Articles of Society jeans but couldn’t find them, instead found their burgundy friends. So cute for fall, these totally came home with me. I would say I’m more of a 28 in pants these days, took a 27 in these. They have a good amount of stretch but suck you in. They do have a bit of a lower rise though, at least an inch below belly button, but I loved. Paired with this gorgeous Halogen cashmere sweater, size medium.

Any great finds I missed??


Most of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases have arrived and as the sale opens up to everyone tomorrow this was perfect timing to share! I also ordered a few regular sale items that arrived too.

Favorite purchase – these fringe booties!! Obsessed. They will look great with jeans, dresses, dressed up or dressed down. I’m also loving these tunic sweaters, keeping both the red and grey. I will wear these with a tunic cami underneath, was just too lazy to pull out. Also, these jeans are my new favorite brand called Articles of Society. Get yourself a similar pair on sale! I’m wearing a small in the sweater, and 8.5 in the booties, and a 27 in the jeans – all true to size.

Another favorite find was this dress. It is a little bit more than I would usually spend on a dress but the cut, comfort, and color make it worth it. I went with the navy that is light enough to work well with black tights, and the ponte fabric make it easy to wear but the structure and seaming keeps it flattering. I’m wearing a size 6 in the dress.

I love this tunic dress in theory but the cut was wrong for me, too boxy. If you are less busty and love a shift dress, then this is a good option for you. Wearing a small.

This dress is also going back. I loved the cut and color but it has no stretch and it was too small in the bust for me. A size up would be too big in the hip area, I’m wearing a 6.

I’m heading to Ireland and Scotland for a week in October so also had that in mind when shopping. I wanted a cute backpack for my trip and this one is perfect for less than $30! It will fit my camera and all my essentials. Wearing my around the house lounge outfit here that obviously includes my Lularoe leggings because they are the most comfortable thing I own.

I also wanted to get this tunic blouse for my trip as I think it will be easy to transition from day to night. And it was also less than $30! Wearing a small.

I originally bought this dress at full price but couldn’t really justify it at that cost. So when I saw it went on sale I decided to snag it! I love the color and the fit. Wearing a small.

I have a few more things still on the way so will add once those get in!

Almost to the weekend, yay!

Put  this outfit together to run errands and meet Michael for dinner. I used to be scared to pair black with yellow to avoid the “bumble bee” effect, but I really like the combo now when done right – I think adding a print helps make it work.

Don’t forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to all today – check out my picks!

Skirt – Loft via Ebay (similar), Blouse – Old Navy (similar), Shoes – Ivanka Trump (similar), Bag – Michael Kors (similar)

Well summer has barely arrived here in Seattle (and it’s arrival is still questionable…) but Michael and I hit the Nordstrom Anniversary sale to pick up a few fall items anyways because the deals are just too good to pass up! And I will be happy to pull out some new items when fall does arrive.

So here is what I picked up this time around

I was happy to find this gorgeous knit jacket on sale for $64.90 instead of $98 – I think this will be a fall staple.

 

Halogen® Stripe Peplum Sweater Jacket

I have been dying to pick up a mustard yellow cardigan for the fall and found the perfect one! Unfortunately, they seem to be out of mustard, but they have a lot of other gorgeous colors still available. See here for all. This happens to be a merino wool blend, which would normally bother my skin, but this one is so soft and I didn’t even notice. On sale for $52.90 instead of $79

Halogen® Merino Wool V-Neck Cardigan

And my absolute favorite purchase of all, this gorgeous leather pencil skirt – classic with a twist! I almost can’t wait for fall to come to wear it (almost, I’m still just hoping for 70 degrees around here). On sale for $149 instead of $228 (good discount!)

Halogen® Leather Pencil Skirt

Ok, this is in close competition with leather skirt for favorite, I adore this navy blue trench and will probably be wearing it all the time! I love ruffles…  On sale for $109.90 instead of $168

Tahari Ruffle Trim Satin Trench

And of course a cozy sweater is needed – I got this in purple, looks like it is only left in grey and black, but I love the deep cowl neck. On sale for $45.90 instead of $69.

Halogen® Cowl Neck Sweater

I managed to find only one pair of shoes this year but I think they will get a lot of use, I love wedges! And you can’t beat the price. I think I might need them in black too… On sale for $59.90 instead of $84.95

 

Nine West 'Shana' Wedge

Now a few things I would pick with an unlimited budget…

Love the print on this, would look great with boots

Laundry by Shelli Segal Print Chiffon Dress

I tried this silk blouse on and fell in love, but went with the leather skirt instead…

Joie 'Marlo' Silk Blouse

Um, I may have to go back for this

Caslon® Open Stitch Sweater
