Okay, can we talk about how great the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is this year?? I can’t stop shopping! I think I’ve made about 4 different online transactions along with my trip to Nordstrom at the mall this past Friday. It’s TOO good! I shared my trip on my Insta Story as well, but unfortunately those expire after 24 hours, so I took photos as well to turn my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dressing Room Diaries into a blog post for those who didn’t get the chance to watch it! Check out what I tried on, sizing info and other thoughts below!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dressing Room Diaries
This Halogen Cashmere Drape Front Vest is one of the most luxe items I’ve ever tried on! Being that it’s cashmere, it’s definitely a bit of a splurge. However, the quality and style of it is absolutely amazing, versatile and timeless. You could wear the vest with a tank, t-shirt, henley tee, plaid shirt, or long sleeve tee! Definitely splurge-worthy. It also comes in a charcoal gray, black, navy and tan. (One Size, and wearing the Heather Gray).
You’ll see a quite a few cold shoulder sweaters in this post, because that trend is not going away ANY time soon! I really love the material of this blush Gibson Cold Shoulder Sweatshirt – it’s really lightweight, but made out of a smooth and soft rayon material that makes it super comfy. True to size (wearing a small) and comes in more colors. I would wear this casually (with jeans, like in my photo), dressed up with some pretty statement earrings (like these metallic tassel ones) paired with a cute crossbody for a night out, or casually on the couch for lounging with these shorts! Depending on your work dress code, it could even pass for your day job. True to size, wearing a small.
How cute is this Pleione Cold Shoulder Tie Sleeve Sweatshirt?! Adorable to the max. This one is made out of a little bit of a thicker material than the blush one above, and is even softer yet! Comes in SIX different colors and runs true to size (wearing a small).
SO, I somehow didn’t even see this shirt when I was shopping online last Thursday when the sale opened up, but my jaw probably dropped to the floor when I saw this Caslon Peplum Shirt on the rack in store. This top has my name all over it! Love the bleached chambray, the peplum OF COURSE, the soft cotton blend material, and the button up detail. It absolutely came home with me. Comes in 2 other colors (red and navy stripe) and I am wearing a small.
A beautiful top that’s ready to wear now and later! This Ruffle Sleeve Choker Top comes in both white and a dusty mauve. The white doesn’t require a cami like most tops do, and I really like the pinstripe, choker and ruffle sleeve features. Perfect for brunch or a night out! Wearing a small.
You guys know I love my lightweight crewneck sweaters in the fall, and this one has the cutest twist! This Leith Bell Sleeve Sweater adds a fun and unexpected touch to this basic sweater style. Also comes in gray, wearing a small.
The black skinnies I’m wearing in the photos above (and a few down!) are also apart of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and ONLY $38!! A huge steal for a pair of Articles of Society jeans. Runs large – go down one size, because they will stretch a bit!
Shocker, another cold shoulder sweater. 😉 The black was a bit hard to photograph, so make sure you check out the model wearing it in the link here! Obsessed with the ruffles around the shoulder openings. Comes in gray and blush too! True to size.
What girl goes through the fall season with out a plaid shirt? This BP. Plaid Cotton Blend Shirt has a boyfriend/oversized fit and is long enough to cover your bum when wearing leggings! If you prefer a closer fit, definitely go down one or two sizes. I am wearing a small for reference, but I love the loose fit. Comes in other plaid colors as well, but the black and white was my favorite.
Thermal tops are definitely a fave in my fall and winter wardrobe! This Socialite Thermal Top comes in 4 colors and is super comfy and NOT itchy (like some thermals are)! Wearing a medium for an oversized fit! Get your true size if you don’t want yours to fit quite as loose/off the shoulder.
Can we get an AMEN for long, cozy pocket cards?! They quickly became a staple in my closet last fall, and I definitely had to pick up this BP. Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan in black. Fun fact, I also ordered the light tan color online the day the sale opened up, and it should be arriving tomorrow! 😛 HEADS UP – runs large! Order one size down. I’m wearing an XS.
Another absolutely perfect long pocket cardi! Also made by BP., this style has larger ribs and comes in this gorgeous tan that I’m obsessed with. I love how it looks with a white/ivory tank or tee underneath! This cardigan also runs large, so size down! (Wearing an XS).
Ending my Dressing Room Diaries with one of my fave purchases and pieces that every girl needs in her wardrobe: a classic v-neck pocket tee! Love the raw edge hem and deep V. Only $15, so go ahead, buy allll the colors. (Wearing a small in the white).
Hope you had fun shopping with me! Stay tuned on my Instagram Stories tomorrow night, because my packages from my online order will be arriving, and I of course will be sharing my try on haul with you!
