It’s here! Early access to Nordstrom’s anniversary sale has started. There is a lot of hype about specific pieces and this sale can feel overwhelming. That is why I decided to do a try-on session to see what pieces that are worth the hype from the sale and what are not.
WHAT I PURCHASED/WHAT I WANT TO BUY:
CASLON side snap tunic sweater
I saw this on a fellow blogger and I fell in love with it the instant I saw it. She pointed out that this sweater is one you can wear with your favorite knee-high boots and a cute hat. It looks so darling with a great pair of jeans as well! I ordered it in a size S because I wanted it to have a little extra room to it. If you want it to be TTS, size down. It does run large.

Something Navy Mid Slip skirt
I fell in love with this skirt the instant I grabbed it. The silky fabric is so comfortable. I loved that it runs true to size. While I was taking these pics, I was wearing it in an XXS since that was all that was available. I ordered this skirt in XS.

Brixton Joanna Hat
This hat sold out so fast! This is a piece I hope gets re-stocked soon. Brixton has amazing quality when it comes to their wool hats. For sizing, I usually wear S in Brixton hats.

Quay x Desi Perkins sunglasses
I love a good sale on Quay sunglasses when I can get them!

Something Navy V-neck cardigan
When colder weather approaches, I pretty much live in cardigans. I’m hoping this beauty gets re-stocked so I can get my hands on it.

BLONDO Nina Waterproof Suede Boot
Nothing beats a pair of shoes that are both fashionable and functional! I am so excited that these beauties are back for this sale. Winters on the east coasts get so brutal so a girl needs to have a pair of shoes that are strong!

ITEMS I LIKED BUT NOT ENOUGH TO PURCHASE THEM
Halogen Bold Purple and Pink Plaid Coat
I wanted to like this jacket so badly because it looked absolutely charming on Jennifer Lake from Style Charade. Sadly, even in a size XS I still felt like this coat was too big. I looked like a toddler who took her mom’s coat to be cute. 😂

ASTR THE LABEL Lace Midi Dress
When I got to my local Nordstrom store, there were only two colors I could try: coral or red tannin. I love the color of the wine colored dress. The only problem is that it does run small. I had to take my bra off in order to wear the dress correctly. It’s gorgeous for a date night but I would say not the best for a wedding only because it is a bit busty on the top. In these photos, I am wearing it in a size S.

SOMETHING NAVY Leopard Crewneck Pullover
I was really excited to try on this sweater because a lot of fellow bloggers looked so cute with this sweater. I was disappointed when I put it on. The length was super awkward for my petite frame. It’s super cozy and has a darling leopard print. In the end, however, there was too much material for it to flatter my petite frame.

CHELSEA28 Sheer Lace Mock Neck Top
What originally attracted me to this top was the color. I love that it’s a timeless blush pink and the lace itself is made well. The only problem is that it does not come with a cami underneath. That being said, if you do not wear one, everything will show. For these reasons, this top was added to my not purchase pile.
