Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try-On Size Guide

Hey girls! I finally received a few of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases in the mail! If you're like me & live no where near an actual Nordstrom store, then you understand my frustration of trying to decide what the quality, sizing, & color are like. So hopefully these pictures [I put together 5 outfits] & info will help guide you on sizing for some of my favorite sale pieces! If you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to comment or shoot me an email :)

First up, this super comfy sweatshirt tunic! It comes in 4 colors & is just under $30. It is super soft! I am 5'7" and this would definitely work with leggings... Plenty of length! I ordered my regular size {small} and it is mostly fitted. I am debating ordering the medium for more of an oversized look. These ripped skinny jeans are a STEAL. They are $37 and have the perfect amount of destruction in the knees! They are currently sold out but I heard a rumor that when the sale goes live to everyone tomorrow they will restock the popular items! However, I will caution you that they are definitely more like a jegging than a jean, despite the product title. Also, you will want to size-up 2 full sizes. I am normally a 26/27 & the picture shows the 27. However, I can't even button these! Ooopps! I will definitely be waiting to order the 28! Lastly, these Vince Camuto booties are a dream! Available in 4 colors they will match everything this fall. I am always a very true size 7. However, I had to get the 7 1/2 in these. Definitely size up!




If you only buy 1 thing from the sale, order THIS tunic. It's $28, runs true to size, and is the PERFECT length for all of those great fall styles! I plan to wear it under this with this faux fur vest, with these faux leather leggings. I also have it in white! I promise, you'll love it! I paired it with these Joe's Skinny Ankle Jeans. They are a great length for tucking into booties since they're an ankle length! I love the dark denim, they are very soft, & super flattering. I also bought my regular size in these! I also purchased this Tory Burch crossbody bag. [It's $140 off it's normal price] The color will pair with so many outfits not just for fall & winter but also year-round. It's the perfect size and holds quite a bit for a cross body! Those are also the same Vince Camuto booties I mentioned above.




This striped tee is one of the best steals of the Nordstrom Sale at under $13. Yes, thirteen dollars! I decided to buy a medium {normal size is a small] because I wanted an oversized look. Well... The body part of the shirt is okay but the arms are still pretty tight! It is currently sold out in a large but I will be stalking the site tomorrow in hopes of grabbing a large to switch it out with! My jeans are the Paige Denim Skyline Skinny. I have never owned a pair of Paige denim but now I understand the raves everyone always has for this brand! HOLY softness. Seriously some of the best denim I've ever felt! They run very true to size, are a great middle-darkness color, and will constantly be worn this fall. Last but not least, Tory Burch riding boots! Last year during the #Nsale I purchased the cognac color & wore them all the time. I knew this year I wanted to snatch a black pair because of how much I loved them. Get your normal size in them! These are always one of the biggest hits of the sale & I can almost promise you that they will vanish quickly tomorrow when the sale goes public! They run true to size, have soft leather, and don't require tons of 'breaking-in' time to be comfy!




Next up is this marled oversized swing tee in navy! It comes in 5 colors, is $30, and runs true to size! This is a size small and is already the perfect amount of oversized! I think this will also be really cute with white denim & sandals as we transition from summer to fall. I am wearing the same Joe's jeans & Tory Burch boots posted above. Also, I grabbed this Kendra Scott necklace. I am a big fan of her jewels and have several pieces. I love how large this particular necklace is! It comes in 8 colors including my favorite fall colors... Emerald green, navy, and maroon! It's marked down from $60 to $39 during the sale. I plan to layer it with a few other Kendra pieces I own :)






I LOVE this zip sweater. It is a great length {can be worn with leggings}, has a side slit, and you can adjust how low the v-neck is with the zipper! I got my regular size in this and had a hard time choosing a color from the 7 options! I went with maroon because it's just the perfect fall color in my opinion :) I wore it with those amazing Paige skinnies, Vince Camuto booties, and Tory Burch bag! I can definitely see myself wearing this outfit in a few months! Also, this exact watch isn't part of the sale but there is a similar 2-tone option here




You can only make purchases at the sale prices if you have a Nordstrom debit OR credit card today. HOWEVER, the sale opens to the public tomorrow! So what you can do if you're unable to shop the sale now, is go ahead & stock up your cart with everything you have your eye on so all you have to do tomorrow is hit purchase :) You might think I'm crazy for even talking about jeans, sweaters & boots when it is 100+ degree outside. I get it. BUT with discounts this deep on brand new fall styles, you will be thanking me come October! Let me know if you have any questions :)  XOX

Hey girls! Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you are well aware of the amazing Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happening now! It is still only open to cardholders {more info on that here} until July 17th. I posted my favorite picks from the sale on Thursday and those included tops, jeans, bags, shoes, etc. So for today's post, I thought I would round of my favorites from the home section! There are some great deals to be found here too.
Whether you are looking for a few new things to add to your home, stashing away a Christmas present or two, or buying for an upcoming wedding gift, there are some great home buys! I LOVE this LED light up letter and at only $24, it's a steal. I plan on buying this for a few people on my holiday shopping list! Who can resist a polka dot Kate Spade mug for $12? I bought one for myself & one for a friend :) If you have a wedding you are attending later this summer or even this fall, this beverage dispenser would make the perfect gift! We received one at our wedding and have really gotten our use out of it! This one has a really cute design too. & A little splash of leopard in your home never did any harm either ;)

It's one of my favorite days of the year: The start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I poured through hundreds of items & I've rounded up my Top Picks of the sale. SO many great things to choose from but for now... This is what I'm showcasing. Stay tuned for a breakdown of more favorites over the next week! NOW is the time to jump on scoring some of these deals. I promise if you wait too long, the very best deals will be gone. {Sadly, I know from personal experience!} You won't find discounts on new fall items like this anywhere else. I seriously love you, Nordstrom!

I wore my Tory Burch boots I purchased during last year's sale ALL. THE. TIME. This year's version is super cute & is marked down by over $150! Closet staple for sure. Faux fur vests & plaid tops are my favorite fall combo. This vest comes in 3 color options too! I got my favorite gold watch last year on during the Anniversary Sale & this year I LOVE this Michael Kors one that's almost $100 off! Floppy hats are my jam in the fall & winter. Especially under $20! I already scooped up these flats that look very similar to the $900 Rockstud pair {love this print even more though} and they are on sale for $60. And who can pass up a classic Tory Burch bag for $150 off? Not this girl ;) I'm already planning out outfits for these black distressed jeans that are $37! 

NOTE | If you want access to purchase these items, you must be a Nordstrom debit OR credit card holder. If you are unsure about signing up, read more of my review here. It's not open to the general public until July 17th. 

Happy Shopping!

Current Sales + Prepping For The BIG One!


Hey girls! 
I can't believe we have hit the month of July already! I swear, my summer months out of school FLY by much faster than normal. Not fair. However, I am excited to celebrate the 4th of July this weekend! It always means lots of food, time with family, and a really good fireworks show. Of course, there is always a whole week of red, white, and blue fashion too! OH, and most importantly, sales galore!! All of my favorite retailers have great sales going on. I thought it was only right for me to share :)

Forever 21 accessories are 30% off + free shipping with code 'EXTRA30' {I scored this bag & these socks for only $27 shipped!!}

Gap has lots of summer favorites marked up to 50% off

J.Crew Factory has the entire site 50% off + score an extra 20% off with code 'HOTSALE'

Kate Spade is giving you an additional 25% off already marked down sale styles with code 'SETSALE'

Loft has an extra 60% off of already marked down sale styles

Old Navy is giving 30% off + free shipping  with code 'VERYGOOD'

Shopbop's sale section is drool worthy right now! They have just added lots of new goodies!

Now for the good sale news! My absolute favorite retailer has their MASSIVE Anniversary Sale coming up on July 17th. They make huge markdowns on NEW fall styles as well as summer styles. Last year, I purchased Tory Burch boots for $200 off and a gold Kate Spade watch that was 40% off. Seriously good deals on the most popular designers and styles. 


Most of the time, big sales at department stores are on current season styles so that they can make space for the upcoming season's trends. However, this is where the Nordstrom sale is different. And WAY better. Lots of the newly released fall merchandise will be included in this killer sale!
Now, the sale opens to the public on July 17th. However, all Nordstrom card {debit & credit} holders get to access the sale early on July 9th! That is NINE whole days of shopping the biggest sale before the general public. Of course last year many of the best deals on new fall merchandise were sold out before the sale went public. 


So here is your chance to jump in early to score the best stuff! Sign up now for a Nordstrom card. If you aren't a big fan of credit cards like myself, you can do the debit card. SO easy and convenient. Your purchases will just be withdrawn from you bank account so you don't have to worry about making any payments or even more scary, missing a payment! It links up to your checking account just like your regular debit card. But the Nordstrom card has special powers.. Like getting you into a sale early ;) I promise it is SO worth it to have a Nordstrom card. Whichever kind you choose. There are several other perks to holding a Nordstrom card:

>> Earn Nordstrom Notes! For every $2,000 you spend {it can be less if you shop during double or triple points} you will get a $20 Note. It is basically a gift card that can be spent on anything you want! It's just a way they reward you for shopping.

>> Spend $100 the same day you sign up for a card and get a $20 Nordstrom Note

>> You can get reimburse for alterations made on Nordstrom purchases in the form of Nordstrom Notes

>> Personal Triple Point Days! Depending on your level {Your level will increase as your annual purchases reach the next level}, you will have anywhere from 1 to 4 days where you can choose to make it a triple point day! Let's say you are spending some birthday money and are buying quite a few more things and spending more than you normally would. At checkout, select it as your personal triple point day and you will earn 3 times the amount of points towards a Nordstrom Note!


>> Of course the best perk of a Nordstrom Card, in my opinion, is early access to the big Anniversary Sale!

I am not spilling my guts about the Nordstrom Card because I am getting paid for it {I wish!} or because I make money off of people signing up. I just really believe that it is a good card to have because it has such great benefits! If you're interested, make sure to sign up now so that you can access the sale from the very beginning!

And don't worry, I'll be up, scavenging for the best deals on my favorite items and will share them all with you ASAP when the sale starts!
