Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks (round 1!)


Alright friends.  I’ve been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for years and this is honestly hands down the best I’ve seen!  Seriously.  It’s SO good this year!

{affiliate links used}

And yes.. I tried this ALL on today. :)  I’ll go into more details about my purchases in future posts but for now I just wanted to take you into the dressing room with me to see a glimpse of what I bought and LOVE!  Today wasn’t my best hair day, the dressing room lighting is horrible and I snapped these pictures so fast because I only had a short amount of time that my husband could shuffle kids around.  I felt like at any minute my carriage was going to turn into a pumpkin so this was speed shopping at its best!  Luckily I know my way around Nordstrom. ;)  Here are some of the things that came home with me today!  Like I said, better pics, more clothes and more fit/size details will come later.  After sleep. :)

Channing Embroidered Military Shirt and Roll Cuff AG jeans.  AG jeans are hands down my favorite jeans and there are so many fun styles on sale this year!  I’ll link to some of them at the bottom of this post!  Can’t express enough love for this shirt!

This Catskills Jacket fits darling if you are looking for a military jacket this year!  Cinches in at the waist for a flattering fit and I love the pockets!

I knew this Ruffle Trim Track Jacket would come home with me as soon as I saw it in the catalog!

I was so excited to see the Barefoot Dream Cardigans on sale!  Softest cardigans EVER!  I wanted one last year and they never went on sale and then sold out of my size.  They come in lots of colors.  I love the longer version too.  I have a feeling these will sell fast!

Cutest scallop edge sweater!  Also comes in lots of colors.

And I love this Ruched Bell Sleeve Cardigan.  I also bought these Wit and Wisdom Hem Jeans ($45!) and these Vince Camuto Peep Toe Booties.  Knew I wouldn’t leave the sale without a pair of peep toes. ;)

There were so many darling sweaters with ruffles and bell sleeves!  I wanted one of each!  (Halogen Ruffle Sleeve Sweater – comes in lots of colors!  AG Step Hem Ankle jeans)

Another cute bell sleeve sweater!

And my favorite of them all!  If I HAD to pick. :)  (Flare Sleeve Sweater – love it in white too!)

This darling Tie Hem Sweater is so cozy.  It made me forget that it was 80 degrees and humid outside!

I tried on a lot of cute moto jackets (including this gorgeous Felicity Leather jacket).

But ended up splurging on this Shrunken Leather Bomber Jacket.  You guys!  SO comfy and it’s absolutely gorgeous.  This pic doesn’t do it justice.  And I don’t usually like this beige/pinkish color on me, but I fell hard for this jacket!  In this color!  I’ll take a better pic soon.

I tried on lots of boots and absolutely loved these Camellia Tall Boots but they were just a tad too tight on my calves.  If you have skinny calves these boots are gorgeous!  I ended up buying these Vince Camuto Madolee Over the Knee Boots instead because aside from loving the look they also just fit me so much better.

Such a great shoe selection this year!  I tried on lots and I’ll link to some favorites below!  I only came home with 3 pairs and was so proud of myself because I seriously could have bought 20!  Almost every pair I tried on I fell in love with.

I needed some new Nikes (so many cute Nikes on sale!) and came home with this pair.  They make me feel like I’m walking on a cloud.

LOVE these Sperry Rainboots if you live in the rain/snow.  I needed something to wear when we go snow skiing but was bummed they don’t come in half sizes.  I’m in-between!   I also love this darling pair of Hunters that are on sale!

And you guys!  My favorite vest from last year’s sale is back!  Seriously one of my favorite things I bought last year.  It’s so flattering and comfy!  I lived in this last Fall/Winter and always got so many compliments every time I wore it.  It sold out fast last year so I’m thrilled it’s back again this year for those of you who wanted it and didn’t get it in time!

Other favorites that went on sale are my favorite Adidas sneakers (I just bought them in pink but also love them in this Talc White that’s on sale.)  My Tie Front Pullover also went on sale!  Such a cute way to dress up a sweatshirt which basically allows us all to wear pj’s out and about in a totally acceptable way. ;)  AND these beloved high waisted Zella leggings went on sale.  Woot woot!  I bought this top and more of my favorite black leggings too.  Love Zella!

Ok friends.. I feel like we’ve barely touched the surface of this sale!  I didn’t get to Kids (got some darling things for back to school!) or Home or the beautiful Hand Bags on sale or the fun shoes I bought my husband!  I’ll take some better pics soon!   Luckily this is just day one and we’ve got time.  As we all know, the Anniversary Sale is a marathon, not a sprint. ;)

Favorites so far are linked below!

  1. Wow!!!! Marathon indeed. Lots of goodness shared. Good luck getting your posts ready! Looks like you are off to a good start. A whole new wardrobe is coming! :)

  2. Yea! I was hoping I would see someone try on that Hinge bell sleeve cardigan. I spotted it, but we don’t have a Nordstrom nearby. It’s so cute!
    Love all your finds!

  3. I shopped at midnight and now ii’m in love with that navy bell sleeve top. The embroidered one is so cute also. I’m doing some major damage but it’s all so good 😳 Scored on kids shoes for back to school also. Can’t wait for round two.

  4. Too many cute finds!! I am so excited for Fall clothes now. Can I just say that GREEN in your color. WOWSA! And the shoes…I die! I sound like Rachel Zoe. xxoo

    1. You are the sweetest Pam! Thank you! Love green. :) Fall clothes are too much fun aren’t they!? I can’t wait for it to cool off now! :) xo

  5. I love the clothes, but do you wear any bright colors – like red, pinks, or coral? It would look great on you, you should! :-)

    1. Hi Maureen! Thank you! You are so sweet. I don’t love those colors on me! I’ve never liked the pinks and reds with my hair/completion but you’re right.. I should try them more. I bought the blush pink jacket which was a big stretch for me.. ha! ;) xo

  6. Hi. I love all the clothes you picked out. I am worried about the bell sleeves. How do those sweaters fit? It is better to go up to a medium if you are beteeen a 6 and 8?

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you! Those sweaters fit pretty true to size! I’m usually an xs in tops and that’s what all of those sweaters are that I’m wearing in this post so I’d order whatever you usually wear. If you’re nervous about it order 2 sizes in each and return the ones that don’t fit. I do that ALL the time when I order from Nordstrom because it’s free shipping and returns are so easy. :) Hope that helps! xo
