I can’t believe the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming to a close this weekend! I’ve heard a lot of people complain about the lackluster pieces in this year’s sale, but I’m actually very pleased with everything I found. Per usual, I was mostly looking for high quality, versatile, neutral pieces in this sale – and I found quite a few of those! Also per usual, most of the items I purchased are now sold out. Regardless, I’ve linked everything below! Things come back in and out of stock on a daily basis, depending on returns, so check back each day to see if you can snag a piece you missed! Scroll down to discover what I purchased + some notes on fit and sizing for reference.
SHOP THE LOOK: HENLEY // JEANS // BOOTS
This henley I ordered in beige oatmeal heather is SO soft and such a great price point ($25!)! It’s a piece I could easily lounge in, but it looks pretty cute with jeans and boots right?! A great casual find I can wear in fall, winter and early spring. I got a size small! It’s very stretchy and cozy, while being pretty lightweight.
I’m super happy with these jeans I purchased too! I usually try a number of pairs during the #NSALE, but this was the only pair that interested me this year. The comfy stretch, high-rise fit and dark wash are ideal for fall. They’re comfortable enough for working from my desk all day too! I went with my normal size in Levi’s, a 28!
I bookmarked these Marc Fisher boots the day I saw them in the preview! I decided to order both the Cloud Suede and the Cognac Suede options to try, and ended up keeping both. The Cloud Suede is more unique, in my opinion, and has a more elegant feel. It looks great with soft neutrals, but they look amazing with black too! Scroll down for a pic. The Cognac color is a lot more subdued in person than it is in the photos online – it’s a great, versatile neutral, but a little more conventional. It’ll work with all kinds of colors!
SHOP THE LOOKS: SPORTS BRA // LEGGINGS, SWEATER (SAME BRAND/COLOR, BUT FROM LAST YEAR’S SALE!) // FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS
I recently made several purchases from Lululemon, so activewear really wasn’t top of mind for me in the #NSALE. I did buy another one of my favorite Nike bras (I wear a medium), and a new pair of SPANX leggings (also in a medium)! I love how high-waisted and form fitting these leggings are. So flattering!
On the right I’m wearing a Nordstrom Signature cashmere sweater from last year and SPANX faux leather leggings. This same sweater is available in a slightly different neckline this year (same brand, color and length!) and it is still in stock! It’s also available in a rich burgundy-fig hue. The cashmere is *so* soft and absolutely worth the $179 price tag. This sweater will go back up to $299 when the sale ends, so snag it at a discount now! I actually didn’t get these faux leather leggings until recently, but I totally get the hype now. They’re nearly sold out on Nordstrom, but SPANX is matching the sale NSALE price until Saturday, so get your size on sale here! Plus, SPANX has sizes available from XS-3X and also Petite, Regular or Tall inseams (Nordstrom’s sizing was way more limited).
SHOP THE LOOK: SWEATER // JEANS // BOOTS // EARRINGS
I always order some Vince pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s one of my very favorite brands and they always have a few really cozy sweaters in this sale. This year, I purchased this mock neck sweater (above) and a simple crewneck style (scroll down)! Both pieces are still in stock in all sizes! Sure, they’re a little more pricey than some of the other items in this sale… but if you’re looking for quality worthy of the price, this is it. These pieces are made to last! I got a small in both sweaters, which is true to size for me – Vince tops/sweaters generally have a more loose fit, so size down if you’re looking for something less boxy/roomy.
The emerald stud earrings I’m wearing here are part of this set from the #NSALE! The emerald shape was what I was most interested in, and while they’re smaller than I expected, I still love them. My ears are double pierced, and I actually kind of love both sets of earrings in at once (scroll down for a pic) – am I crazy?! These are the same jeans and boots I mentioned at the top of the page! Scroll up for reviews on those.
MARC FISHER SUEDE ANKLE BOOTS (IN CLOUD AND COGNAC) // STEVE MADDEN LEATHER ANKLE BOOTS // NATORI BRA // HANKY PANKY RETRO THONG
Earlier I mentioned the Marc Fisher boots I bought! The pairs on the left and in the center are the same pair but in different hues. The far left pair is Cloud Suede, the middle pair is Cognac Suede. I think they’re both going to be great neutrals for me! The pair on the far right is this Steve Madden pair in cognac. I have a pair of knee-high boots in the same color that I wear a ton in the fall/winter season, so I know I’ll get a lot of use out of these! All three of these boots are true to size. It should be noted that the Marc Fisher boots fit more narrow, so not a great style for people with wide feet! The Steve Madden boots are a bit wider.
In the photo on the right is the bra and a few pairs of my favorite undies I bought during the sale! Natori is one of my go-to bra brands, and Hanky Panky is who all of my underwear is by. I have both the regular rise and retro rise thongs – both are so comfortable and last forever!
SHOP THE LOOK: SWEATER // JEANS // BOOTS
The other sweater I bought during this sale is this Vince crewneck sweater in Light Heather Marzipan. I bought this same style in grey in the #NSALE two years ago, and it’s been a favorite fall/winter staple of mine ever since! When I saw it returned this year in two new neutrals, I had to go for it. This beige color is so effortless and chic! I also got it in black, because it goes with everything and I wear so much of it in the fall/winter season. Like the one I bought two years ago, I got a small in this sweater! As I mentioned above, most of Vince’s sweaters and tops are a bit more loose-fitting. If you want something more fitted, size down!
SHOP THE LOOK: DRESS // SANDALS – VEST AND BOOTS ON RIGHT ARE OLD!
This dress was a piece I discovered several days after I placed my order during Early Access! I either hadn’t seen it before, or it hadn’t yet gone live in the sale… either way, the second I saw this perfect-for-fall paisley print I knew I had to have it! The color scheme is rich and warm, while the fabric is super lightweight. So ideal for a Texas fall! I’m wearing a size 6, which fits great. I shared two ideas for styling it now and later in the fall when the temps drop on Instagram Monday!
SHOP THE LOOK: SWEATER // JEANS // BOOTS // EARRINGS
Here’s the same Vince crewneck sweater and the Marc Fisher Cloud Suede boots styled with black denim and a black handbag. This combo is such a chic contrast! On the right, you’ll see I’m wearing both earrings from this set at once – kinda fun, isn’t it?!
