2021 NSALE Fitting Room Try-On Haul

2021 NSALE Fitting Room Try-On! I got to head to Nordstrom to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on Wednesday. My mom + Brylee tagged along & we had the best day! I will say- in store selection was limited. Several things I was hoping to check out in person weren’t available. One of the employees I chatted with said most of the Nordstrom brands [Caslon, BP., Halogen, etc.] were extremely delayed in getting to stores. I ended up placing an online order for most of those things I wanted & I’ll be back in a few days with another try-on session to share those!

I DID find some real gems to share with you for this NSALE Fitting Room Try-On! Shirt jackets, straight leg jeans & oversized sweaters are definitely going to be top 2021 trends. I put together 16 outfits below to share! You will see several items restyled a few ways which makes them my favorites! Anything I can instantly create multiple outfits with is an easy YES PILE item for me!

Also, please note. Fitting room lighting sucks. haha I did my best to brighten these so you could best see the items!

 

NSALE Fitting Room Try-On

Free People Sweater: $79.90

Fits oversized! My store only had a large left but I really need a size small. Comes in 4 colors!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings: $64.90

A closet staple for me! I’ve had them for years & have worn them dozens of times. I even had the maternity version [also on sale!] last year when I was pregnant. My #1 NSALE recommendation if you don’t already have them. Size up if between sizes!

Steve Madden Chain Booties: $99.90

My favorite booties from the sale! The chain detail makes them different than any style I’ve owned before. Fit is true to size!

Treasure & Bond Felt Hat: $25.90

A great Fall basic! I am a big fan of hats & this one will match tons of outfits.

 

Thread & Supply Plaid Shirt Jacket: $31.90

One of my top 5 NSALE items! This shirt jacket is soft, has pockets & it’s lined! Also comes in a grey plaid, solid camel & solid light blue. I grabbed this tan/black combo because I think it will match SO many things!

Free People Tee: $24.90

A great basic! This is more true to size for the Free People brand. I wore this under tons of cardigan & jackets! Comes in 4 Fall colors.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings: $64.90

A closet staple for me! I’ve had them for years & have worn them dozens of times. I even had the maternity version [also on sale!] last year when I was pregnant. My #1 NSALE recommendation if you don’t already have them. Size up if between sizes!

Madewell Striped Cardigan: $58.90

A yearly NSALE classic! This years version is a great colorblock combo of neutral colors making it easy to match with lots of things!

Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution Jeans: $49.90

The MAGIC jeans! These are the best jeans & the only pair I even bothered to bring in the fitting room! There is an elastic waistband on the inside! This means they have the perfect amount of give but don’t actually stretch out. I wore these comfortably until about 23 weeks pregnant & then they were perfect for postpartum too! Can’t recommend any of the Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution jeans enough. Tons of washes & styles HERE. Size down if between!

Free People Tee: $24.90

A great basic! This is more true to size for the Free People brand. I wore this under tons of cardigan & jackets! Comes in 4 Fall colors.

Steve Madden Chain Mules: $59.90

Probable the most versatile shoe in the sale! It is great to wear NOW with shorts and LATER with jeans/leggings. There are 5 color options available but I like this one best!

Treasure & Bond Felt Hat: $25.90

A great Fall basic! I am a big fan of hats & this one will match tons of outfits.

The same shirt as above but in a navy plaid! Again, I love the oversized fit. Styled it here unbuttoned with a graphic tee!

Daydreamer Graphic Tee: $44.90

This brand is known for soft, high quality graphic tees!

P448 Leopard Platform Sneakers: $199.90

My biggest splurge of the sale! I have wanted Golden Goose for a while now but could never bite the bullet on the $500 price tag. These are very similar but with a slightly less ‘dirty’ look than the GG. And also, about half the price. These are $100 off for the sale! I love this specific style with the hint of leopard!

 

Madewell Ribbed Mock Neck Sweater: $64.90

Love the ribbed texture to this sweater! Soft and comes in 3 colors!

Billabong Graphic Tee: $23.90

Another great graphic tee option! Would be cute with a cardigan, moto jacket or plaid flannel!

BlankNYC Zip Suede Skirt: $54.90

I LOVE this skirt! Another top 5 pick from this sale. You’ll see me style this several ways through this fitting room try-on. Also comes in a grey suede! I recommend sizing up if between because there is no stretch to the suede.

Vince Camuto Knee High Boot: $149.90

The only tall boots I purchased! Love the color but even more so, love the square toe! The front dip at the top of the shaft is very flattering on the leg too!

BB Dakota x Steve Madden Textured Dress: $54.90

I stumbled upon this dress and loved it in person! I didn’t even give it a second look online so I’m glad it was in store! The color is Fall perfection. This is a size small [all my store had] but I need a M in it for more length.

Vince Camuto Knee High Boot: $149.90

Fall Outfit Inspiration: 15 Outfits from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale [+ Dupes in Stock!]

Today the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finally opens up to ALL Nordstrom cardholders! I’m so excited for all of my friends that are able to shop the #NSALE today! I wanted to share my big, annual try-on session featuring 15 outfits from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. [see try-on hauls from: 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016] Some of these items I bought from the 2020 #NSALE, some were gifted items, & some are items I’ve purchased from previous year’s sales! It’s basically one big HAUL-iday!

To acknowledge the elephant in the room… I know there is a lot of disappointment around so many things already being sold out. HOWEVER!! I encourage you to use these 15 looks for Fall outfit inspiration! I bet there are things in your closet you can use to recreate some of these looks. AND!!! I have spent HOURS searching the Internet to find at least 1 similar item for every. single. #NSALE. item. Hopefully this lightens the disappointment if the actual #NSALE item is already sold out! This way, you’ll be able to get these looks too! Below you’ll find pictures, shopping links, sizing info & where to find a similar item! At the very bottom of the post I’ve linked ALL the jewelry I’m wearing… including a few items that are on sale!

Happy shopping, girlfriends! xo

Quick Note:

I know that it is frustrating when some of the things on your wishlist [AKA the most popular items!] are sold out before you can even shop. Trust me, I wasn’t in the ‘first’ shopping group and didn’t get a few things I wanted… so I fully understand.

Two quick thoughts on that… 1: Check for restocks often! I’ve had luck in years past frequently checking back throughout the day on that item. Sometimes they restock it fully OR as returns come in, sizes will sporadically appear! And 2: These are Fall items and the Fall season isn’t even here. That means other retailers will be launching their Fall collections soon and are sure to have similar or just as cute items included! Ultimately we will all be able to use favorites in our closet with the addition of a few new goodies to have cute Fall outfits! I promise to share as much outfit inspo as possible on Instagram and Instastories!
