Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

It’s that time of year again!
One of the biggest summer events to look forward to is finally here:
the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

This sale is unlike any other. Why? Because everything that’s on sale is all the NEW products for fall. Most sales are full of products going out of season, but the NSale is the opposite.

It started on July 13 for early access (you bet I took a much needed bar prep study break to shop it). If you have a Nordstrom card then you get early access to shop all the amazing items before the sale opens to the public. Starting today, July 21, the sale is open to the public. So I thought I would share most of the things purchased and review them for you in case they’re on your wish list too! A lot has already sold out (so I didn’t include those items in this post) but if you have any questions, let me know!

SIZING
Currently I am 35 weeks pregnant so I have quite the bump situation. That being said, I know I won’t be pregnant forever so I got my normal sizes in most things.
I’m 5’3″ and normally wear a Medium/Large in tops.
For shoes, I typically wear 8.5-9.5 (quite the range but I have a wide foot)

CLOTHES
Some of my favorite things to purchase during the NSale are sweaters and cardigans. A lot of the cardigans I purchased are out of stock, but if it comes back in stock, the BP. one is my favorite!

Cold Shoulder Sweater

BP. Cold Shoulder Tunic Sweater
I love tunic sweaters because they can easily be worn with leggings or jeans. This one is adorable and perfect for fall!
Sizing: Medium (but runs large, I would have sized down)
ColorBurgundy Stem
Price: NSale $35.90 | After Sale $55

Plaid and Stripe Tops

BP. Plaid Shirt
I love a good plaid! Plaid shirts are so versatile and I love this years color options. I got several colors (some are out of stock now) but they are so worth it. These can be worn as a shirt or open over a tank and leggings.
Sizing: Large
ColorGreen Alpine Schy (this is a gorgeous color in person)
Price: NSale $31.90 | After Sale $49

BP. Pocket Tee
I love this years version more than last years. It’s comfortable and not too large. It does have a more oversized fit, but I find that my normal size works well with the bump. These tees are light and not too warm.
Sizing: Medium
Color: I got green, white stripes, and grey stripes
Price: NSale $18.90 | After Sale $29

Dreamers Sweater

Dreamers Forward Seam Tunic Sweater
This is, by far, the softest sweater I own. I put this on and immediately did not want to take it off (but forced myself to because it’s hot outside).
Sizing: Medium
Color: I got grey but am considering other colors
Price: NSale $29.90 | After Sale $45

Halogen Tank

Halogen Jersey Funnel Neck Top
I got these for work and wearing under cardigans in the fall. They are so stretchy and comfortable.
Sizing: Large, I sized up because it was just a tad more comfortable and they are skin tight, so I didn’t want all that hugging my post-pregnancy body.
Color: I got white, black, and green
Price: NSale $19.90 | After Sale $29

Pleione Sweater

Pleione Cold Shoulder Tie Sleeve Sweatshirt
I love cold shoulder tops and was sold on the tie detail. This sweatershirt (more like a sweater but with sweatshirt material) is so soft!
Sizing: Medium
Color: I got burgundy and green
Price: NSale $45.90 | After Sale $69

Zella High Waist Crop Leggings
This is my first of Zella leggings and I don’t know why I waited this long to try them. They are high waisted so they fit perfectly over the bump. I’ve also heard these are great for postpartum so I’m excited for that!
Sizing: XL, but I have a Large coming in the mail to see if those fit better
Color: Black
Price: NSale $33.90 | After Sale $52

PURSES
My other favorite item to purchase are purses (I have a slight obsession over them)! I only have a couple listed here because the other ones I purchased are sold out (Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody and Kate Spade work tote).

Tory Burch Frida Swingpack
When I saw this in store, I knew I loved it. But then Bret said “that would be perfect for date night!” and I knew I had to have it. Any purse the boy likes is one I like! This bag looks small but holds a lot!
Color: I got light oak, but it also comes in black and french grey
Price: NSale $283.90 | After Sale $428

Green Tee Tory Bag

Tory Burch Frida Leather Satchel
I had an LV Speedy 35 and loved the size of it so I’ve been looking for a replacement of that one. This is it! The size is a good inbetween bag that’s not as small as a crossbody but not as big as a tote. This is going to my new go-to bag for everyday wear.
Color: I got light oak, but it also comes in black and french grey
Price: NSale $329.90 | After Sale $498

SHOES
This year I found some great gems that can be paired with so many different outfits!

Adidas Gazelle sneakers
Online these don’t look like much, but in person? Holy smokes, they adorable! I wasn’t sure, at first, how I would like having colored sneakers (all mine are white or grey) but I must say, I really love these. They have arch support which is perfect for me, my back, and baby bump.
Sizing: I got my normal adidas size in 8.5
Color: I got Dust Purple, they also have White
Price: NSale $59.90 | After Sale $79.95

Adidas Tubular Viral 2 sneakers
Again, I wasn’t sure how I would like having colored sneakers but these go with everything! Not only that, but they are so comfortable. It feels like I’m not wearing any shoes at all!
Sizing: I got my normal size in 9
Color: Icey Pink/White
Price: NSale $74.90 | After Sale $99.95

Vince Camuto Fileana Split Shaft booties
I love booties, mainly because my calves are too wide for tall boots. So when I find a bootie I like, I snatch them up! I knew these would be a best seller of the sale because of the color selection, price, and design. They’re plain with a enough detail to not be boring. And, they’re really comfortable!
Sizing: I went half a size up and they fit perfectly!
Color: I got Greystone Suede, but they also come in Black and Taupe
Price: NSale $99.90 | After Sale $149.95

Halogen Corbin Slide Loafer
I have been wanting a pair of mules for a while and finally bit the bullet with these, and I’m glad I did! These are super cute and pair well with so many outfits. I wore them the day after I got them (my birthday) and was obsessed with how comfortable and fun they are. Also, as a pregnant woman who finds it difficult to bend down and put on shoes, these are perfect for pregnancy!
Sizing: I went a full size up due to pregnancy swelling but I think you’d be fine going up half a size, as they are a little narrow.
Color: Leopard! But there’s also Black, Silver, and Wheat/Nude HERE
Price: NSale $59.90 | After Sale $89.95

Let me know in the comments what you’re purchasing from the NSale!
