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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚  XOX

    I totally love this and am kicking myself for not doing it since I also JUST got my stuff from the sale in and some of it doesn't fit! Luckily, I bought two sizes in just about everything haha!
