Happy Thursday, loves! Today is the day where both Icon & Ambassador status cardholders can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale online at 11:30am EST. I highly recommend shopping online because things are flying off the shelves in stores (went to both Nordstrom & Galleria in Dallas) and there will be inventory online for y’all to shop.
I will have a new blog post out from here on out with new picks (i.e. best of beauty, top sellers, men’s favorites, etc) so that you’ll be able to continue to use my blog as a shopping resource. There’s also a “NSALE” tab on my home page where you can drop down and search my category. That portion will be added on 7/12/19 at 11:30AM EST.
I wanted to share some of the things I grabbed from the sale that I personally love and think I can get the most use out of. I know the sale is overly hyped and everyone and their dogs will be sharing it but please remember not to get overwhelmed and spend more than you have! It’s so easy to just see something that’s cute and convince yourself that you need it but the best strategy is really to have a list of things you NEED prior to seeing what’s on sale. That’s what I did because I honestly can’t take a bunch of things back with me to New York and truth be told, there will be other sales from different retailers for fall/winter items– your whole closet doesn’t need to be from Nordstrom!
I just wanted to preface my NSALE blog post by sharing my thoughts there. That being said, let the games begin!! I’m sharing my top 6 favorite outfits that I grabbed in-store and also linking items that I think will sell out the fastest! Remember, Nordstrom has an AMAZING return policy so even if you’re not sure about an item, just grab it in your size now because it might sell out before you get the chance to decide on it.
This leopard print cardigan will be gone in no time. Everyone is sharing it and it’s honestly pretty good. I don’t own a leopard cardigan because I’m VERY picky about them because let’s be real– it’s a pretty loud piece to have in your closet. It has to be the right length, fabric, etc. I kind of wish this one had pockets but other than that, this is the real deal. It does run a bit big so I got a size XXS for reference.
The cami I’m wearing underneath will also sell out FAST!! It sold out quickly last year and I feel like it’s even better quality this year. It comes in ivory, black, leopard print and one other print! I got it in the first three, haha. It’s just a really good basic to have in your closet because you can pair it + layer it with anything. I got a size XS!
My sunnies are a bit on the pricier side but on major sale. Let me tell you something girls, TOM FORD is EVERYTHING right now. It’s trending, it’s hot and it’s not overrated. These sunnies are incredible. It’s a pretty classic, timeless frame that you can wear year round and such great quality. Highly recommend if you’re looking for an investment frame!
I feel like I’ve talked about my faux leather spanx for years now so there’s not much to say except get it ASAP before it sells out. You will literally wear it all fall/winter long. I got a size small!
I paired this whole outfit with these really awesome Vince Camuto boots. I love the stitching on the sides for the other ones I linked in the widget above, it’s so unique!! I was walking in mine yesterday and they’re comfortable so far!
This free people tunic is another item that will go quick. I’m petite enough to where I can actually wear it as a dress (it’s longer in the back) but they’d be cute with white cut offs or even those spanx we were talking about earlier! I paired the dress with these Steven Madden nude heels that are VERY COMFORTABLE. 100% recommend.
I sized up to a small to wear it as a top + dress.
Same day, another leopard print! This is such a fun trench!! I was looking for jackets and trench coats more than anything this year to gear up for NYC winter and I just love how this one feels. It’s another loud item in your closet but leopard seriously goes with anything and is HOT right now.
I don’t own a solid suede skirt so I figured this cognac one would be a good addition to my closet! The cognac shoes I threw on here are so affordable + I love the style on these. So comfy too with the block heel.
I know some of y’all were looking for some good sweaters and I absolutely love this one from Madewell! The color just screams fall and it’s easy to layer with! I threw on the ivory cami underneath to add a little dimension and there ya go!
The denim I have on here are from FRAME. I sized up to 26 in these (appears to run just slightly bigger than AG jeans) and I’m loving the minor distressing here. The fit is great– makes the booty look fabulous too!
PS– BUY THIS HAT! I feel like I have an odd shape head (lol) so a lot of hats don’t suit my face but this one is AMAZING. It’s adjustable on the inside too.
Okay, last leopard item in this blog post! This pullover is from Something Navy and it’s SOOOO GOOD!! Definitely something that’ll sell out FAST. I got a size small but kind of wish there was an XS available because I wanted this to be a bit snug. There’s also a cardigan version of this pullover that will also fly off the shelves. Get what you think you’ll wear the most of because again, it IS another loud piece!
I actually don’t own any leather boots (besides booties) so I’m giving these ones from Vince Camuto. So far they fit great but they’re a little big on top…but not by a lot. They’re comfy & cute… but still debating on these just because of how they fit up top. I’ll show more of that on stories.
Cardigans, cardigans, cardigans! Another hot item that sells out quick during the anniversary sale. I loved the print on this one but I will say it’s not the SOFEST one out there. It’s not itchy so I ended up getting it because I love the block colors but it’s not barefoot dreams soft, ya know? Speaking of which, barefoot dreams cardigans are back and will also be another item to fly off the racks. Linking those here for y’all! I got it in black & ivory.
These booties kind of remind me of the Jeffrey Campbell ones I got last year and I love them! It comes in multiple colors but I don’t own anything of this taupe-y shade so I got them. Super comfy and cute! I got my true size– 7.5.
Lastly, the denim I have on here are from AG Jeans and also sell out every single year. This one doesn’t have much distressing but I actually like the clean look to them and that’ll be pretty common throughout the upcoming seasons!
I know you can’t tell, but I got another pair of sunnies that I’m wearing over my head– linking them here. They’re smaller than the other Tom Fords but still very classic and just a solid pair to have.
That’s all for this post, y’all! I wanted to share the looks I styled here on my post. I’ll have more items linked on the LTK app and of course I’ll share more things on stories with you guys!!
