NSale Purchases Review

Hey y'all!! So I'm sure you know by now the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public Friday. For those of you cardholders, now is the time to grab the pieces you've been debating! How's that quote go? "Nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy" Haha In all seriousness though, things are sure to sell out crazy fast and you don't want to regret missing out on these deals!

Today I'm sharing everything I purchased during early access, sizing info, overall fit and quality, as well as a few styling tips to help make your shopping experience easier. Everything is also linked throughout the post, as well at the bottom under the Shop the Look icon. 

Floral Tie Neck Dress - Runs TTS wearing a size Small / Sale Price $62.90 - after sale $95

First we have this gorgeous floral dress. This is by far one of my favorite items!! It has such a romantic silhouette and it cinches in your waist, making it very flattering. Combine with a leather motto (mine is past season but check out these almost identical versions here & here that are part of the sale) and you'll have one seriously chic ensemble. I also paired this look with the BP. Heeled Studded Booties. There are so many cute pairs of boots and booties included in the sale but I was drawn to these for their detailing. They are a seriously good deal too at just $79.90 and run TTS. The block heel is really on trend but that also makes these very comfy. Win, win!! They come in a couple other colors as well and I'm really contemplating buying the cognac tonight.

Next we have the Leith Circle Cardigan. Last I checked it's sold out in this color but there is a chance it will be restocked Friday. Fingers crossed! I love the blush but it also comes in some great neutrals and a pretty burgundy that's perfect for fall. It's suppose to be a little oversize and slouchy but if you prefer a less boyfriend fit than I would definitely size down one. This raw edge tee is also part of the sale and just $15. The only downfall with the white is it very sheer. I paired mine with a cami. Overall for the price and fit it's a great deal on a basic if you don't mind layering.

Raw Edge Tee - Runs TTS wearing size Small / Sale Price $15.90 after sale $24
Ripped Crop Skinny Jeans - Runs Large (order one size down and unless you prefer boyfriend fit) wearing size 26 / Sale Price $42.90 after sale $65

So I styled this look with one of my favorite purchases from last years sale, these adorable calf hair leopard flats. They brought back these beauties in an updated version, that I believe is even cuter! They are really comfortable and great quality. I've worn mine many times and throughout every season and they are still like new!

Ok so this next piece has countless styling options! If your looking for the best deal than this lattice back sweater is it! Only $42 you can wear in any season paired with shorts, jeans, skirts, layered over a dress, I could go on and on. While the back detailing is where it's at, don't overlook those fab flared sleeves! I wanted it to be extra slouchy so I ordered a size Med, overall it runs pretty TTS.

Sam Edelman Boots - Run TTS wearing size 8 / Sale Price $149.90 after sale $224.95

So this is one example of how you could style it for fall. I love the combination of oversize sweaters with shorts and skirts to start the transition from summer into autumn! Plus when you pair a loose top with a fitted skirt and boots it really elongates your torso and makes your bottom half look so tiny! I paid full price for these Sam Edelman Boots last fall and now they are $75 Off! These were my most loved and worn boots this past season. They look amazing with almost anything and they're ridiculously comfortable despite the high heel! If you're looking to invest in an amazing pair of leather boots, than I would highly suggest these!

Here is a closer look at the booties from my first outfit as well as the beautiful Rebecca Minkoff bag I've been carrying throughout. Don't you just love the embroidery?! A fun twist on one of her classic styles.

BP. Block Heel Studded Booties - Sale Price $79.90 after sale $119.95

This last item was the most popular of all and sold out days ago, so sad! Praying it gets restocked and if it does you MUST purchase! A duster cardi with a bold stripe that's perfect for layering now (see below) and into the cooler months. I ordered up on this one too because I love for my cardigans to be really roomy and long.

Topshop Ripped Boyfriend Shorts - Not part of the sale but still a great price! I've worn these nonstop since the 4th, I'm obsessed!

Hope y'all found this found this to be helpful and that your able to find everything you're looking for Friday! My best advice, order multiple sizes if you're unsure and then return what doesn't work and constantly keeping checking back because items are restocked daily even hourly. Also remember prices go back up 8/6, so hurry and snag your faves before there gone!
