Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: My Favorite Finds

Hi guys!

If you’re a fashion lover like me, then you probably know that today is the first day of early access for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale for all cardholders. I first heard about the sale two years ago and am always shocked by how many people shop it each year. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unique because the items included are new styles for fall, not older or last season items! This sale is really the best time to stock up on all your fall looks because prices go back up once the sale is over!

This year’s sale is a little different. Usually card members can get early access a week before, but this year if you are a cardholder with Ambassador or Icon status you get to start shopping even earlier! Wednesday was the first day I could shop so I raced home from work and headed to the mall. I was debating sharing what I found because I feel like sometimes it can be a bit much with every blogger covering it, but you guys really seemed interested in what I got, so I figured I’d at least share some of the items that I really loved!

I swore before I walked in that I wouldn’t just get a bunch of sweaters, but here we are. I think my favorite two parts of the sale each year are sweaters and shoes, so it’s hard not to get carried away when I see all the new and coziest styles. Here are a few that I really couldn’t live without!

1.Chelsea28 Cowl Neck Sweater | Color: Beige Oatmeal Light Heather | My size: XS

2.BB Dakota Up to Speed Faux Leather Moto Jacket | Color: Parchment | My size: XS

3.Something Navy Flecked Crewneck Sweater | Color: Pink Windsome Combo | My size: XS

4.Caslon Side Snap Tunic Sweater | Color: Beige Oatmeal Light Heather | My size: XS (regular – fits like a dress on me and I’m 5’3”)

5.Leith Longline Cardigan (pictured above) | Color: Pink Adobe | My size: XXS

6.Leith Longline Cardigan | Color: Beige Oatmeal Medium Heather | My size: XXS

7.Make + Model ‘Gotta Have It’ V-Neck Tee | Color: White | My size: XS

8.Sperry Crest Vibe Platform Sneaker | Color: White/Tan Leather | My size: 6.5

9.Caslon Evelyn Genuine Calf Hair Mule | Color: Leopard Print Calf Hair | My size: 6.5

10. Halogen Button Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater | Color: Pink Bride | My size: XS

Nordstrom Sale -5

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hi guys!

So with my Nordstrom Card I was able to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale starting July 13th. Unfortunately my family was traveling that week and the card was in one of the bags, so I had to buy everything online.

Shopping the sale online was quick and easy because the site is easy to use and you can see the full inventory. However, the one MAJOR downside was having to wait so long for my picks to come in. I was so so so excited to shop the sale that having to wait over a week for my stuff to come in felt like torture.

As a blogger, everything moves fast so having to wait for shipping was a hassle. However, if you’re just shopping the sale for some great fall picks, then shipping shouldn’t be an issue at all!

When my package finally came in yesterday, I literally jumped I was so happy. I love EVERYTHING! If you want to see videos of me trying each item on you can see them on today’s Instagram story (@BayStateBlonde).

Nordstrom Sale -2

My first outfit features a few of my very favorite picks from the sale. I saw so many beautiful pink pieces on sale that all sold out so quickly! I was lucky enough to snag this B.P v-neck pullover in time. It is so comfortable. I’m wearing an XS and I would say that this item fits true to size. It is a little oversized, but that’s what makes it so cozy!

I like to buy all my jeans on sale, or at Marshalls, so the idea of spending more than $50 on a pair is outrageous to me. I was secretly hoping these wouldn’t fit but the second I slipped them on I knew they were staying. These Paige Huxton High-Rise Ankle Skinny Jeans are honestly the best pair of jeans I’ve ever worn. They’re soft and flexible and literally slid on. No pulling, no fighting, no frustration like some pairs of skinny jeans can cause. Best of all no feeling like you need to wear them a bunch to stretch them out. These fit like charm from that start and say that they won’t stretch. I’m wearing a 24 and they fit true to size.

While at the Mall of America last week I dragged my whole family in for another trip to Nordstrom. These Vince Camuto beauties were sitting pretty in the shoe section and calling my name. I had already order a similar pair (see picture below) but wanted to make sure I had ordered the right size. These shoes were a little tricky to get on, they definitely need to be broken in, but they fit well and are so pretty. Honestly they are the perfect fall boots! Mine are a 6.5 (fits true to size) and in the color is called Foxy.

Nordstrom Sale -3

Next up on my picks is this cozy cream cardigan. It is on sale for $52.90. I ordered an XS in the color Heather Oatmeal. It has an oversized fit but is true to size. What I love most about this style is the length, pockets, and hood! You can’t see the hood but its a cute detail that adds a uniqueness to the style. Its also incredibly soft which is great because no one wants to waste money on a scratchy sweater!

This Shiraleah Lyla blanket scarf I’m wearing makes me want to devote a whole post to the style. It is a great fall piece that I know I will wear all the time. Oh, and it’s only $24.99! Last year I was on the hunt for one just like it but I had no luck! This one is absolutely perfect. I love the cream color and the deep red and blue tones. Also, it’s massive. You can see in the top photo that it totally takes over the end of my bed. It really is blanket size, perfect for the chilly autumn days!

My jeans are JOE’s Honey Curvy Skinny Jeans. They are also a size 24 and the same price as the Paige jeans above. These jeans fit true to size and have a little extra room in the hip and butt are for curvier girls. Since, I wasn’t blessed with any real curves they are a little baggy in those areas but nothing too bad – plus it’s nice to not have a pair of jeans digging into you. These jeans are incredibly soft and comfortable!

These boots are also Vince Camuto. They are a lower heel and they are a bit taller and wider of a style. I love over the knee boots and these are great, the only thing to note is that smaller girls like me (I’m 5’3″) may find that the boot come up a bit high. These on come up a little higher that I would like but they still look very nice! I ordered them in the color Brown Suede.

Nordstrom Sale -1

Naturally the first items I looked at were the pajamas and loungewear. I mean, who doesn’t like being comfortable? This sweater is the same as above. I love it and have been wearing it since it arrived in the mail yesterday. I like how it is nice enough to style and wear out but comfortable enough to throw on with a pair of comfortable sweats.

I was so excited about these pants when I ordered them! They are called ‘Lazy Morning” pants so that probably tells you all you need to know! They are so soft and I love the gray and ivory stripes. They’re warm but lightweight. I know I’m going t practically live in them from now on. I ordered an XS and they definitely fit true to size.

Nordstrom Sale -4

I was warned that the black and white striped B.P. Pocket Tee would sell out quickly, but I didn’t realize it would be gone by the second morning! Nordstrom shoppers are committed to say the least, but I can’t blame them it was a total classic and only $18! I had it in my cart and thought I had gotten to it in time, but unfortunately the order was cancelled. So, to style this look I used a basic striped tank from H&M (a hand-me-down from my roommate, Hannah).

These pants are Make + Model Good Vibes joggers and on sale for under $30! I order an XS an they fit perfectly. I don’t really own any other jogger style pants but I really like how I can wear these as capris or full length. They are also incredibly soft. I like them because they are very comfortable but they look stylish enough that you could get away with dressing them up and wearing them out.

I love converse, you guys may have seen them featured in my Shop Your Color: Pink guide. They are such a classic. I have a couple different pairs but my favorite ones are white. However, the white canvas was no match for my messy life and even though I’ve done everything possible to salvage them, they’re beyond help. What I like about these Converse All Star Shoreline Sneakers (on sale for $35) are that they aren’t canvas. They are an off-white color and they are supposed to be a twill material but they feel like a soft sort of leather (I’m not the best with textiles). The material is great because its not as absorbent as canvas so they are easier to clean! I also really like the low top style!

Unfortunately, some of my picks are sold out, but there are still so many good styles on sale until August 7th! You can shop the Nordstrom sale online and in stores and they have a great return policy so don’t be afraid to order multiple sizes if you are buying online! I’d love to hear about some of your top picks and any favorites from my post in so feel free to comment below or reach out! Happy shopping!
