Man, that was a fun day yesterday, but totally wore me out! Who knew shopping and writing about it could be so exhausting?! I guess the fact that I got up at 2am to finish my 1st dressing room post made for a rough morning! But, a good night’s sleep has me energized for Day #2 of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Tell me, what did you score?! I ended up shopping the Sale online and found so.many.more things on the site than they had at my store. #always But then, I had trouble checking out and I heard some of you did too. #getittogetherNordstrom! #wewanttoshop! My order did go through and I’m hoping the problem is completely fixed today because I have more to show you from the things I tried on yesterday! And I didn’t forget you non-cardholders! There’s more for you at the end of today’s post!
To help you with sizing, I wrote this post a little differently, calling out my recommendations for sizing up or down with “SIZING” under each item so you could see it easier. For fit reference I’m 5’1, 105 pounds and 34D. I hope this helps!
Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan XS/S $76 now, $116 after sale
I don’t know how I went to the anniversary sale and my very favorite thing ended up being a piece of loungewear! But, honestly, it’s my new BFF. I’m wearing it right now while I type this sentence. 😉 It’s one of those things that after you get it, you can’t believe you lived without it for so long! I promise both you (and your mom) will love it! I brought it home yesterday and was showing my mom and she immediately wanted to wear it so I ordered her one. I’m also stocking up on this to give as Christmas gifts this year to some very dear friends! It’s literally the cozy of the coziest and a snuggle magnet! I’m wearing the color Cocoa/Pearl Heather, but it’s more brown than the grey.
SIZING: The sizing is kind of odd in this because it goes XS/S for 2-6; Medium for 8-10; and Large/XL for 12-16.
PJ Salvage Pajama Set XS
Next up is the pair of pajamas I scored. I like a shorts + 3/4 sleeve top combo and this one is lightweight and comfy. The pink with grey elephants is sweet too.
SIZING: It runs on the small side, XS fit me perfectly, but keep in mind the shorts are short.
Caslon Twill Peplum Jacket XS $49 now, $79 after sale ⋅ Articles of Society Mya Skinny Jeans 25 $38 now, $59 later ⋅ Top Shop Balloon Sleeve Tee XS ⋅ Hunter Original Refined Short Rain Boot $119 now, $185 after sale
The Mya Skinny Jeans are probably the best value skinny jean in the entire Anniversary sale, which makes them one of my top picks. Can you believe they are under $40?! I like the solid, darker wash and how unbelievably comfortable they are- probably because they’re stretchy, but still hold their shape. I have a better picture of them a few down with the white balloon sleeve top.
If you don’t have a military jacket in your wardrobe, consider this one. It’s a great basic layering piece for mild weather.
I showed you the Hunter boots yesterday, another item you should add to your cart if you don’t have. You will be so surprised how much you wear them!
SIZING: The jeans run big and have a lot of stretch in them. I ended up ordering the 24. The jacket fits TTS, but was tight across the back on me. The boots come in whole sizes only, so size up if you’re in between.
