NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE TRY-ON HAUL!

The Nordstrom sale is in FULL SWING and things are already selling out. I don't live anywhere near a Nordstrom, so I drove 3 hours on Saturday to shop in person. I had also placed a couple orders online previously for pickup so I was sure to get the things I wanted that I KNEW would sell out. Although I am a little late with my try-on haul, I think most things will be restocked a little bit come Friday. I'm noticing that this year they aren't adding things that are returned back to the site--which makes me think they are saving them all for a Friday restock (fingers crossed)! Anyways let's get to my try-on haul!

Outfit 1


Sizing: I actually sized down to a Medium in this jacket! If you don't want it to be super oversized--I would suggest doing the same. I still have plenty of room to move around in the Medium! 
Thoughts: I'm obsessed with this! I love the design and the fit of this jacket. I can tell it's a piece that will be a definite staple in my Fall wardrobe! 

Sizing: Runs TTS--I ordered a Large. 
Thoughts: For the price, these BP tees are amazing. I think the quality is even better than last years. They are just the perfect basic tee that you can use to layer throughout the fall season. 

Sizing: I sized up in these because they are a straight jean with little to no stretch and Topshop generally runs a little smaller. And I am so happy I did! These fit great! 
Thoughts: I have been loving the straight jean look lately and these are no different! I love the little slit on the side above the ankle--such a small detail, but I feel like it makes such a difference in the look of these jeans!

Sizing: I sized up a half a size in these, which was recommended by Nordstrom. They fit perfectly for me in an 8 1/2! 
Thoughts: I love these! They are such a fun print and again, I love the slit right above the ankle! I feel like it really elongates your legs!

Thoughts: OBSESSED with this necklace. It is a pretty heavy, great quality coin necklace unlike most the necklaces I've bought in this style. It goes with everything and both necklaces can be adjusted to three different lengths. 

Thoughts: LOVE this necklace too. It's so dainty and can be paired with other gold necklaces for a layered look, which I love. 

Thoughts: These are a great pair of everyday hoop earrings. They're fairly small, but I love the detailing they have with the chain link look and the crystals on the outside of the hoops. 

Outfit 2



Sizing: Super over-sized, so if you don't want it so slouchy, I would size down. I got my normal size.
Thoughts: This cardigan is going to be PERFECT for those super chilly days in the fall. It's so big and cozy you could even use it as a blanket if you wanted. I love the color of this, too!

Sizing: I would say these run big because they are so stretchy. I sized down a size in these!
Thoughts: I LOVE these jeans. I got the lighter pair last year and I wear them all the time. They are super comfortable and the two rips in the knees are the perfect amount of distressing. 

Thoughts: I always love a good blanket scarf and this one is no exception! The colors in this one are absolutely beautiful and the material is SO warm and soft! 

Sizing: I sized up to an 8 1/2 in these and I'm happy I did! They fit perfectly!
Thoughts: These booties are so comfortable and they match with almost ANYTHING in my fall wardrobe. I'm totally obsessed and I can tell I'll be wearing these all season long. 

Sizing: Runs big. I ordered a Large because I typically think I have a pretty big head (lol), but apparently not because this hat is huge on me. I definitely need a medium! 
Thoughts: The design of this hat is beautiful--I love the color and the matching trim on the hat. It's a really sturdy, great quality hat!

Outfit 3

Sizing: Runs TTS--I'm wearing a Large. 
Thoughts: I love the look of this sweater! I love that its cropped and can be worn nicely with high-waisted bottoms. The popcorn texture is really fun, too!

Sizing: Runs TTS--I'm wearing a size 30. 
Thoughts: I LOVE this skirt. The faux leather is so soft the lining inside is made of a silky material that makes it so comfortable. The fit of this is amazing, too, it just conforms to the body so nicely. 

Outfit 4

Sizing: Runs TTS, but it is very oversized, so if you want it a little more fitted, I'd size down. I'm wearing a Large. 
Thoughts: This is easily one of the softest sweaters I've ever felt. I could wear it every single day it is SO comfy. The color is super pretty and unique, too!

Sizing: I would say these run big because they are so stretchy. I sized down a size in these!
Thoughts: I LOVE these jeans. I got the lighter pair last year and I wear them all the time. They are super comfortable and the two rips in the knees are the perfect amount of distressing. 

Sizing: I sized up to an 8 1/2 in these and I'm happy I did! They fit perfectly!
Thoughts: These booties are so comfortable and they match with almost ANYTHING in my fall wardrobe. I'm totally obsessed and I can tell I'll be wearing these all season long.

Sizing: Runs big. I ordered a Large because I typically think I have a pretty big head (lol), but apparently not because this hat is huge on me. I definitely need a medium! 
Thoughts: The design of this hat is beautiful--I love the color and the matching trim on the hat. It's a really sturdy, great quality hat!

Thoughts: Kendra Scott makes the most amazing jewelry pieces, so it's always great when you can get it on sale! I love this necklace because it is adjustable and can be worn short or long if you want.

Outfit 5

Sizing: Runs TTS--wearing a size Large.
Thoughts: This sweater is one of my favorites! I love that it is a color block pattern, but it's still neutral so it can be paired with so many different things! I also think the mock neck is way more flattering than a full on turtleneck!

Sizing: I sized up in these because they are a straight jean with little to no stretch and Topshop generally runs a little smaller. And I am so happy I did! These fit great! 
Thoughts: I have been loving the straight jean look lately and these are no different! I love the little slit on the side above the ankle--such a small detail, but I feel like it makes such a difference in the look of these jeans!

Sizing: Runs TTS--I'm wearing a size 8!
Thoughts: I really like the look of these loafers! The colors in the snakeskin print are so pretty and rich, which I love. I will say the first time I wore these they did give me pretty bad blisters on the back of my heels, but I'm hoping that will get better! 

Thoughts: This hat is incredible! I love the color, I love the trim, the fit is great--truly, I have no complaints! I'm so excited to continue wearing this throughout the fall season. 

Outfit 6



Sizing: Runs TTS--wearing a size Large. 
Thoughts: I love this dress! It's unlike anything I have in my closet and it can be styled in so many ways! The material is very silky and smooth, so it's going to be comfortable throughout the day or night!

Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: The one I'm wearing in this picture is actually from last year's NSALE, but the one this year is super similar. Again, BP basics are totally worth it for the price!

Outfit 7


Sizing: Runs TTS--I'm wearing a Large. 
Thoughts: I love how this fur/teddy coat option is a little bit cropped and more fitted than others I've seen in the past. It gives you a little more shape than most huge teddy coats. I also love the camel color of this one! It just screams fall! 

Thoughts: This bag is super edgy and unlike anything I own already! I love the embossed sort of crocodile type look it has to it! The circle shape is also really unique, which I love. Surprisingly, it fits quite a bit of stuff in here as well! 

Sizing: I would say these run big because they are so stretchy. I sized down a size in these!
Thoughts: I LOVE these jeans. I got the lighter pair last year and I wear them all the time. They are super comfortable and the two rips in the knees are the perfect amount of distressing.

Sizing: Runs TTS--I ordered a Large. 
Thoughts: For the price, these BP tees are amazing. I think the quality is even better than last years. They are just the perfect basic tee that you can use to layer throughout the fall season. 

Outfit 8


Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: This is definitely one of my favorite sweaters by far! It's SO soft and cozy and I love the slouchy fit. The colors in the sweater are also super unique and something you don't see a lot, which is always nice for a change. 

The jeans I'm actually wearing are old Topshop Jamie jeans, but the LOOK really similar to the washed black Free People ripped jeans included in the sale and they FIT almost identical to the washed black Topshop Jamie jeans in the sale. Both are linked here: 


Outfit 9


Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: I really like this top because it's a more casual version of a portfolio button-up top. I like that the sleeves are more flowy and there aren't any buttons on the sleeves or down the middle. 

Sizing: I would say these run big because they are so stretchy. I sized down a size in these!
Thoughts: I LOVE these jeans. I got the lighter pair last year and I wear them all the time. They are super comfortable and the two rips in the knees are the perfect amount of distressing.

Sizing: Runs TTS--I'm wearing a Large.
Thoughts: I'm in love with this fur coat! I love the neutral color and how chic it looks with any outfit! I also think the length on this is good for everyday! It's also super soft and warm, so it's going to be functional just as much as it is cute! 

Outfit 10


Sizing: I'd say this runs a little big. I bought in my normal size and I definitely could've used a Medium. 
Thoughts: I LOVE the look of this skirt. I think it's so girly and fun and could be styled in so many different ways for each season. It can also be super elegant, which I love. 

Sizing: I ordered my normal size, which fits fine, but it is definitely oversized, as you can see in the photos. I kind of like this because I can tie it or tuck it for a styled look.
Thoughts: I love this sweater for pairing with literally anything--its neutral, but still fun with the little speckles throughout. It's also super soft! 

Sizing: I originally ordered these in my regular size, an 8, but I ended up returning them for an 8 1/2 for a much better fit. I'd say if you have a super narrow foot, you'll be fine with your normal size, but if not, I'd size up a half a size. 
Thoughts: I love how sleek and sophisticated these booties are! They are unlike anything I already own and the Marc Fisher brand never lets me down when it comes to style and quality!

Outfit 11

Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: This is a great cardigan for the price. It's not super soft or anything, but it is still a thick, warm sweater that would be great for chilly weather. I love the look of longline cardigans, too!

BP Striped Tee:
Sizing: Runs TTS--I ordered a Large. 
Thoughts: For the price, these BP tees are amazing. I think the quality is even better than last years. They are just the perfect basic tee that you can use to layer throughout the fall season. 

Sizing: I sized up in these because they are a straight jean with little to no stretch and Topshop generally runs a little smaller. And I am so happy I did! These fit great! 
Thoughts: I have been loving the straight jean look lately and these are no different! I love the little slit on the side above the ankle--such a small detail, but I feel like it makes such a difference in the look of these jeans!

Sizing: I sized up a half a size in these, which was recommended by Nordstrom. They fit perfectly for me in an 8 1/2! 
Thoughts: I love these! They are such a fun print and again, I love the slit right above the ankle! I feel like it really elongates your legs!

Outfit 12

Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: The Madewell Ryder cardigans are some of my favorites because they are so soft and comfortable! The fit of these looks good on everyone--something about the way they hang is just flattering! I love the color blocking colors of this one! 

Sizing: Runs TTS--I ordered a Large. 
Thoughts: For the price, these BP tees are amazing. I think the quality is even better than last years. They are just the perfect basic tee that you can use to layer throughout the fall season. 

Thoughts: I really love this crossbody bag. The pink color is a perfect pop to any neutral outfit or an outfit that has shades of pink already in it. It's a pretty roomy bag to be so small, too, which is perfect for me! I was able to carry my phone, keys, a card wallet, lipstick, and my camera inside. 

Outfit 13


Sizing: Runs TTS--I'm wearing a size Large. 
Thoughts: These silky tanks are a must have if you can get your hands on them! They are great layering pieces to wear under jackets or cardigans during Fall! I absolutely love the leopard pattern of this one!

Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: The fit of this jacket is amazing! I love the way it conforms to the body and just makes you feel so snug once you put it on. I didn't mean to order this dark color, but I actually really like it!

Sizing: These run TTS--I'm wearing my normal size 8.
Thoughts: I really like the darker snakeskin pattern of these. By having a dark brown and black color mixed in, I feel like I can get away with wearing these with basically any outfit. 


Outfit 14


Sizing: I sized down to a medium in this blazer. I tried on the large and it was just a little too big. 
Thoughts: The thing I love the most about this blazer is how long it is--I feel like I can never find a true longline, oversized boyfriend blazer until I found this one. I also love the black and white pattern because it can match quite a bit. And of course, Free People always makes great quality pieces.

Sizing: Runs TTS--I ordered a Large. 
Thoughts: For the price, these BP tees are amazing. I think the quality is even better than last years. They are just the perfect basic tee that you can use to layer throughout the fall season. 

Outfit 15



Sizing: I would say this runs a little small--especially if you have a bigger chest, I would definitely recommend sizing up. I did and it fits great! 
Thoughts: I really like the fit of this top and the style. It's kind of elegant and work appropriate while being super cute and trendy at the same time. 

Sizing: Runs TTS


Thoughts: I really like this coat for just a casual "throw-on" sort of everyday coat. It's really simple and easy to pair with any outfit. It doesn't have a tie or button anywhere, so if you're looking for something more structured, I'd steer in another direction.

Outfit 16

Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: The material of these joggers and the hoodie is to die for. It's such a plush, soft, comfy material that makes you just want to curl up and snuggle all day. Not to mention, the fit of these joggers is perfect--not too baggy, not too tight. 

Sizing: I sized up to an XL so it wouldn't be tight or cling to my boobs at all. If you have a small chest, I think you'll be fine with your normal size. 
Thoughts: Again, LOVE the material of this set. And the leopard pattern is such a cute and trendy look! I'm obsessed! 

Outfit 17


Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: I love this top for just something easy to throw on and go during the fall months. It's super flowy, which makes it look great with leggings or jeans. The v-neck and fitted sleeves also give you some shape so you're not completely lost in fabric! Overall, a really great piece to have! 

Outfit 18

Sizing: Runs TTS--only comes in S/M or M/L. I'm wearing a M/L!
Thoughts: As I'm sure you all have already heard, Barefoot Dreams is AMAZING. Their cardigans are so soft and comfortable and in my opinion, completely worth the price. I own the thicker, fluffier one already, but I had to pick up this drapey one because it looks so cute! It's still super soft and cozy, but the draping gives it a more stylish look.

Outfit 19

Sizing: Runs TTS
Thoughts: I really love the neutral color blocking trend happening with this sweater! It makes it super easy to just throw it on with any bottoms! The turtleneck isn't too tight and the sweater isn't too cropped--it's the perfect little fall sweater! No complaints here!
