Anniversary Sale In Store Try-On Preview!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

You guys! The sale of the year is finally here! I feel like a kid on Christmas, I stayed up all night in order to link all of these items for you and put in my online order! I got to go into the store today and preview the sale items, although I couldn't buy them yet, these are my first round of picks of tops, sweaters and cardis! I had limited time since I had no one to watch the baby so I had to run out during her nap, Dustin works from home so she wasn't alone, don't worry. Luckily I have a fellow blogger friend who works at my local Nordstrom who was able to pull some amazing items ahead of time to save a little bit of my sanity! 

Like I've said a million billion times, if you see an item in this sale, DO NOT WAIT. You can always return it if you end up regretting it, but you will regret even more if you never get the chance to try it! Every year I wait on something and then as soon as I want it, it's gone. Just trust me on this, buy everything that catches your eye and then edit down later. Plus, Nordstrom has the most amazing customer service as well as free returns! There's truly no reason why you should miss out on anything. Also, it's not too late to sign up for a Nordstrom card in order to shop early access, you can sign up at any time throughout the entire sale. Sign up through my blog post HERE or by calling your local Nordstrom store! 

I'm trying something new with this post, you can click directly on the photo to shop the item I'm showing! 

First I tried on THIS amazing cardigan/coat (coatigan?) it comes in this charcoal grey and a lighter grey! I'm getting both. This is 100% my style, and super comfortable! I'm wearing a Medium in the pictures but could definitely size down to a Small for a more fitted look. 

HERE is the light grey version. SO. GOOD.

 I wish I had gotten a better shot of THIS windowpane top. There was a similar one in the sale last year that sold out SO fast and I'm still kicking myself for not grabbing it on the first day! This top runs true to size, I'm wearing it in a Medium. This is one you don't want to wait on!

Buying/wearing a Medium in THIS coat. How perfect is the length and the color? HERE'S the graphic tee I'm wearing too! 

THIS chunky sweater one is so similar to one that was on the sale last year, just with buttons this time! It is so incredibly SOFT. I'm wearing a medium but clearly can size down to a small. I love how oversized it is so I'm buying medium! Definitely one of my favorite purchases!

THIS sweater is on another level. If it has pockets and a hood I'm obviously buying it! This sweater ticks all the boxes and how cute is it with this graphic tee? You know how I love a good girl power graphic! Swoop this one up in your true size. I'm getting a medium.

I'm still really into blush for the fall so THIS cardi was another no brainer. I love Madewell sweaters, too. They do it right every time! Wearing my true size, medium! 

I was excited to see the Free People pieces on sale and THIS sweater caught my eye immediately! It definitely looks a little more blue in person, but the cropped length is perfect for high waisted skinny jeans and these sleeves are actual perfection. I love the ballon sleeve trend and I saw a lot of pieces with this kind of sleeve in the sale. It also comes in a range of other colors. So fun! Wearing a medium in this one too.

There are so many affordable thermals in the sale! I'm going to link THIS one that I'm wearing as well as a few more. Theres THIS one, THIS one, and THIS one too! I'm buying a variety since I live in thermals in the fall/winter! They're so cozy and now that I'm home with the baby all the time I live in cozy pieces like this!

THIS peplum is so cute! It tricked me though because I didn't realize it had an asymmetrical hem until I put it on. It's a great basic and comes in a few colors. Perfect for layering in the fall but you could definitely wear this for the rest of summer too! 

But First Nordstrom Graphic Anniversary Sale Style By Julianne

I don't think THIS graphic even needs an explanation. If you love Nordstrom as much as I do, buy it in your true size! 

I almost passed by THIS jumpsuit but I'm so glad I gave it a chance, I am so obsessed with this piece and I plan on wearing it to an event this weekend! It has an overlay top half with a ruffle hem, it's hard to see in the photo but it is so darn cute, I promise! Normally I would size up in a piece like this, but I'm wearing my true size. The fabric doesn't have a lot of give though si if you are larger in the chest area you might need to size up one. I know for a fact this will sell out VERY fast, so don't sleep on it!
