Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Must-Haves

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Must-HavesAs promised, here is everything I bought from the Nsale including sizing info, prices (now and after), color and my brief review of each item. The most common feedback I’ve been hearing about shopping the Nsale is the overwhelmingness. Which I can totally relate to, it builds on the anxiety of what do I buy, what color and what size. The Nsale should be a happy experience not a stressful one. So, scroll below to read my guide and to see what the items look like when worn in real life. To shop each item, click the bolded green link or press the item photo in the carousel. If things are sold out, don’t be discouraged. They may be restocked at certain points during the sale as people make returns. Or if an item is completely sold out, check back after the sale to see if stock has replenished. If you have any questions, please comment below or DM me and I’ll write back. Thanks! 

Halogen Seamless Day Bra (size small in beige brush, I always size up in bras for comfort; now: $11.90 after: $19.00) | Make + Model Jogger Pants (size xs in blue indigo; now: $29.90 after: $45.00)

Such an awkward picture to post first but I wore this bra in every single photo below. It’s so so soft, it feels like the soft material of spas but without the excessive tightness. It plunges slightly making it the perfect t-shirt or low cut shirt bra. It has a racer back but the option to wear as two straps. You’ll be able to see how nicely it looks under every shirt in the photos below. These pants were an in-store find. Their super soft and long enough to be worn at the hips or pulled up slightly. The adjustable draw string makes this possible. 

BP Plaid Shirt (size xs in black daily plaid; now: $31.90 after: $49.00) | Thermal Henley Top (size xs in heather/charcoal; now: $24.90 after: $38.00) | Braided Bootie (true to size in light pink suede; now $79.90 after: $119.95) | 1822 Denim Jeans (not part of sale) these are 1822 and are on anniversary sale here and here

This plaid shirt is so so soft and somewhat thin so it lays so nicely. I did get an xs instead of an xxs because I like these types of shirts to fit looser. If you see below it can also be tied in the front for another look. The henley is also very soft and the v-neck cut gives it more style. The booties are a must! The braided detail and color is so unique. These can def be worn with so many different pieces. They’re also very very comfortable. Scroll below for close up details.

BP Stripe Pullover (size xxs in ivory egret color block; now $31.90 after: $49.00) | Vans Old Skool Sneaker (true to size in rose gold; now: $42.90 after $64.95

The colors of this shirt go so well together. It’s like a summer/fall sweater. It’s super light-weight so it can be worn on a chilly summer night with shorts and sandals. I love the wide variety stripes for a vintage look. It does tend to run big so size down if you don’t want it to be too loose fitting. The Vans sneakers are back in style. They have a slight platform and they’re more of a textured cream colored canvas. The rose-gold stripe really stands out.

BP Stitch Curve Hem Cardigan (size xxs in oatmeal; now $31.90 after $49.00) | Flare Hem Tank Top (size xs in tan thrush; now $15.90 after $24.00) | Cela Bow Slide (size 6.5 but normally a 6, go up a half to full size from your true size, if you like extra room go up a full size in ace moxie pink; now $84.80 after $129.95)

This cardigan was a must for me again this year. I have a similar style in grey that I purchased during the sale last year and I’ve worn that thing down this entire year. It’s great to throw over a dress, a tank top with jeans or a tee and shorts. The pockets are my fav for stowing lipgloss and my phone. Size down because it’s very loose fitting and also very long. Also- these shoes! Be sure to size up, do not buy your true size, they will be too small. I sized up a half size and my heel comes right to the edge but doesn’t hang over. If you like more room, then size up a full size. I love that the shoe is pink suede and the bow is a satin material. Very cute for all year round. 

BP Plaid Shirt (size xs in black daily plaid; now: $31.90 after: $49.00) | Stretch Denim Mini Skirt (size 25 in black; now $35.90 after $55.00) | Halogen Hailey Bootie (true to size in white leather; now $99.90 after $149.95)

This denim skirt is also a must. It’s soft and super stretchy. So it will fit snug. I’m usually a 24 but they didn’t offer that size so I went with the 25 and it fits perfect. It has belt loops and pockets. It’ll look stylish paired with otk boots also. But for now, I’ll be wearing it with sandals and ankle booties.

BP Balloon Sleeve (size xxs in ivory; now $31.90 after $49.00) | Halogen Hailey Bootie (true to size in white leather; now $99.90 after $149.95)

This sweater is another good find. Size down in this also, if you don’t want it to be overly loose fitting. The mock neck gives it style. It’s a heavier sweater, so it’ll be really great for fall and winter. I did style below under a coat and it wasn’t too thick that you couldn’t fit a coat over it. I’d say it’s perfect right in between warm but not thick and stuffy.

Halogen Ruffle Neck Sweater (size xxs in petite in green; now $49.90 after $79.00) | Cela Bow Slide (size 6.5 but normally a 6-  up a half to full size if your true size, if you like extra room go up a full size in ace moxie pink; now $84.80 after $129.95)

This sweater comes in a really great shade of green. It’s not a bright green either, more of a rich lighter shade of emerald. It’s warm, a fall and winter only sweater. It’s also very comfortable. Though it’s not as thick as the above sweater.

J.Crew Olga Boiled Top Coat (size 00 regular b/c sold out of petite in winter pine; now $184.90 after $278.00) | BP Balloon Sleeve (size xxs in ivory; now $31.90 after $49.00) | Halogen Hailey Bootie (true to size in white leather; now $99.90 after $149.95)

This coat! The first thing I had my eye on. I wish they didn’t sell out of petite (I’m 4’11 and a half). I was hesitant to get the regular so I referenced the size details. The regular is 37″ long and the petite is 36.5″ so I didn’t think a half inch would make much of a difference. The sleeves are a little longer but this is great when wearing a sweater since they will ride up my arm anyway. Overall, amazing quality (it’s Italian wool), it’s super light-weight and not at all itchy. There isn’t a liner on the inside. Glad I invested in this one.
