The Ultimate Fall Outfit Inspiration | 25 Outfit Try On Session from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Ok, friends! The day is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to everyone! In past years, all of the good things are always gone after the first day or two. So I highly recommend getting your shopping on as early as possible! I did a pretty lengthy try on session on Instagram a few days ago with all of the outfits from my purchase. I had SO many questions that I wanted to put it all in a blog post! Below is each outfit, what I’m wearing, how the sizing runs and links you can quickly shop & get things added to your cart! I wanted this to also serve as some outfit inspiration for how to style and pair these items. You might already have striped tops and plaids in your closet so hopefully this can be a guide you can reference in a few months when the temperatures finally CHILL. Literally! 😉 So here are 25 sale outfits that you can shop now!

Ruffle Neck Floral Top: TTS / I’m wearing a small
If I had to pick my favorite three tops in the sale, this would definitely be one of them! It’s the perfect Fall floral and I love the cold shoulder detail. A must!

I’m currently obsessed with raw edge hems and the angled cut on these is a bonus! They’re also a great price ringing in under $50.

The slide slits on these booties are SO cute! Thinking about grabbing the grey color as well. 

Long Sleeve Knit Tunic: TTS / I’m wearing a small
LOVE this! At under $25, I want it in this stripe as well as the other color options! It’s a great quality and has a cute curved hem.

High/Low Cardigan: TTS/ I’m wearing a small
Such a great cardigan option! Lots of colors but of course I like the pink!

These jeans have a LOT of hype. They do fit great but I am not sure they’re worth 3x the price as some of the other jeans I bought. I also am not a huge fan of the back pockets!

Even though these have a heel, they are pretty dang comfortable! I also think this color will go with almost every outfit!

Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse: TTS / I’m wearing a small
I also got this in the blue floral! The sleeves are so fun & you can’t beat the price!

No Closer Blazer: TTS / I’m wearing a small
A seriously good blazer that can polish any outfit!

One of my favorite shoe purchases! They are buttery soft & will go with everything!

Side Tie Cashmere Sweater: TTS / I’m wearing a size small
Y’all! This was my only cashmere purchase and it needs to be yours too! It feels amazing, it’s perfectly oversized and those side ties are to die for!

Scallop Tank: TTS / I’m wearing a size small
This is the perfect wear now / wear later top! It’s cute paired with a cardigan but I also wore it out to dinner last night by itself. And what you can’t see in this picture is the back! It has buttons, scallops and a small opening. It’s adorable

Lightweight Cardigan: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This is one of the best buys of the sale! It’s a simple, staple cardigan that comes in great color options. 

For only $43, this is a good pair of jeans! They are great with flats but also looked cute in boots as well. 

These are definitely staying in my closet! With a 1 year old, a solid pair of flat boots are a must. This is also a really pretty color. 

For some reason these are showing in the wrong color options but they are the correct item! Click through to see the colors I am wearing!

Life Changer Moto Jacket: TTS / I’m wearing a small
The name of this jacket is incredibly accurate! For only $65 the quality is amazing! And I love the gold zipper an detailing. I’ll be wearing this one for years to come!

Raw Edge Tee: TTS / I sized up to a medium for an oversized fit
I got this tee in a few colors! It’s super cheap but a good quality for the price. And the raw edge hem is fun!

Okay, I don’t have too many places I wear heels. But because I love these so much, I am going to have to find somewhere to wear them! ha! I love the velvet and the heel isn’t too high. Would be great for work or date night!

Tie Front Fleece Pullover: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This is another one of the tops in my 3 favorites! It’s incredibly soft and I’m loving this purple color for Fall!

These are perfect for running around town. They are a little bit nicer than your typical tennis shoe and will pair with your favorite Fall tops!

Forward Seam Sweater: Size up for a cozier fit / I’m wearing a medium
This is the SOFTEST sweater ever!! It’s under $30 and y’all… Get every color! ha! Okay, maybe not that extreme but I can promise you this is the best sweater you will get for this price!

How cute are the cutaway sides of these booties? They have a flat heel and are really comfy! Loving the unique look to these. 

Tiered Bell Sleeve: TTS / I’m wearing a small
How fun are these sleeves? It’s more of a sweatshirt material and is really cozy. 

Striped Pocket Tee: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This is one of the most popular items in the sale! It’s a great layering staple for Fall and goes with tons of options!

Plaid Tunic: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This is definitely meant to be oversized. It works great as a tunic and is plenty long enough to wear with leggings!

Knit Vest with Fur Trim: TTS / I’m wearing a small
The fur trim is uber soft! What I love most about this vest is that it’s not too heavy or bulky! You can easily layer it without feeling like a marshmellow. lol

Pleated Velvet Fit & Flare Dress: Runs big / I’m wearing a small & could have almost sized down to an XS
Holy gorgeous!! This navy blue color is stunning, the velvet feels so luxe & the cut is incredibly flattering! I think this dress would be perfect for a Fall or Winter wedding, any dressier event you might have or even for holiday parties paired with a blazer! Seriously a gorgeous dress to have in your closet!

I love the 3 1/2 inch heel because it is still wearable for a girl/mom like me! 😉 And the crisscross detail is really cute!

Lace Back Sweater: Runs slightly small / I’m wearing a medium
You’ll have to watch the video at the bottom of this post to see a better view of the back! The side lace continues around the entire back and it’s so pretty! I also ordered this top and since it’s almost identical, I knew I had to pick only one out of the two. So this one was the winner!

There were so may colors I wanted in these bow flats but I knew this plaid option was the most ‘me‘! It’s a little unique but they will go with so much!

Ruffle Hem Bell Sleeve: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This cute top has a great stretchy feel to it! I love the slightly peplum hem and think this would be great casual or dressed up!

These have the same angled hem as the blue jeans I’ve shared in several of the outfits. White denim is a great closet staple regardless of the season! So if you’re in need of a pair, at this price, you need these!

These are a great everyday flat. This nude color will match tons and it also comes in 3 other colors if you’re looking for something different! They are comfortable & I think will hold up really well!

Rib Knit Tunic: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This is meant to be oversized! It’s a great tunic length and provides plenty of coverage for wearing leggings. And the best part- there are zippers on both sides! Such a cute detail!

Burgundy Pocket Top: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This is the same as the striped top I wore in the outfit layered with a plaid. It’s a great closet staple!

How CUTE are these!? They are a great wear now, wear later item. Wear them in the Summer with a breezy white tank and wedges or wear it like this when the temps cool off. 

Bow Sleeve Blouse: TTS / I’m wearing a small
Clearly I am a lover of things with bows and this top is no different!

Leather Bralette: TTS / I’m wearing a small
Okay, this is totally out of my comfort zone! ha! But when I saw it on the website, I knew I had to at least try it on! It might be a little better on a girl with less up top. But if you’ve got a Vegas trip or a fun night out, this would be incredibly cute!

Velour Pleated Midi Skirt: TTS / I’m wearing a small
This would be darling with tons of different things! It feels amazing and is so soft. I just think it’s super pretty!

Crushed Velour Tee: Runs small / I sized up to a medium
Clearly I am loving this new Fall trend! If you’re wanting to give it a try, this tee is the best place to start! It’s only $23 and when you layer it, it’s really stinkin’ cute!

Striped Hooded Thermal Cardigan: Arms run tight / I’m wearing a small but will exchange for a medium
I am a sucker for anything with stripes so I knew I had to grab this thermal cardigan! It’s actually a darker grey and white stripe. 

I’m a big Bauble Bar lover and really liked what they included in this years sale! This necklace will go with tons of outfits and will be great for layering. 

Raw Edge Tee: This is the same top [in a different color] that I wore with the moto jacket

Velvet Kimono: one size
I do really like this but I am trying to decide if it’s too much velvet? I do love it paired with a tee and think over the knee boots would be a good match too!

Back Zip Sweater: TTS / I’m wearing a small
I love the detail on the back of this sweater! And the color is a perfect Fall neutral. 

Loving this color and the size is perfect to carry everyday!

Shearling Fleece Pullover: Runs small / I’m wearing a medium
Okay, I know this isn’t the most figure flattering sweater but holy cow, on the days you just want to be warm- this is it! It’s SO warm, so soft and so cozy! The inside is lined with a sweatshirt material. It’s a total steal under $50!

I think grey jeans are a great staple to have in your closet & are an easy alternative to blue jeans. This pair is only $42 and feel amazing on!

These have been incredibly popular and for good reason! They are comfortable and who doesn’t love a cute pink sneaker?!

Ruffle Sleeve T-Shirt Dress: Runs TTS but is short / I’m wearing a small
This is a super cute dress that you can wear now! However, it does run pretty short. I am 5’7″ for reference. If you are shorter though, I would highly recommend it!

For $16, this has all the perfect Fall neutral colors. That makes it super versatile and will match lots of your outfits when the weather cools down!

These definitely live up to their hype! Super cute and something you can start wearing now and well into the Fall months. I think this color will match lots too!

Scallop Sweater: Runs small / I’m wearing a medium
This scallop sweater is cute! I was hoping it would be more of an oversized fit but even the medium is still pretty fitted on me. What I love most is that both the neckline and hemline are scalloped. I would say this is more of a professional or dressier sweater than what I was thinking. 

Lightweight Cardigan: same as posted above with the scallop tank outfit

For some reason these are showing in the wrong color options but they are the correct item! Click through to see the colors I am wearing!

Ruffle Trim Sweater: TTS / I’m wearing a small
Probably my #1 favorite top of the sale! It’s super soft and has the cutest side ruffle detail! I foresee myself wearing this on repeat.

If you’re going to buy 1 piece of jewelry during the sale,  I think it should be this necklace! It’s simple enough that it will match anything & everything but is so, so cute! Normally it’s $75 but right now it’s under $50. It would also make a great gift for someone!! It comes in silver, gold and rose gold.

Plaid Top: Same as the one above with the stripes & vest outfit

Knit Open Cardigan: TTS / I sized up to a medium for a cozier fit
Ok, so this is made by the same brand as the super SOFT $30 sweater I shared above. Which means, this cardigan is also SUPER soft!! It’s on sale for only $36.

Whew! That was a lot of outfits! I hope you found that helpful! As always, please let me know if you have any questions about any of these items. The sale ends August 3rd but things will start selling out quick! Since Nordstrom has FREE and EASY returns, I highly suggest you order the things you might be interested in, try them on, and decide from there. It is so simple to return anything that doesn’t work out!
