Public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE! Yay everyone can shop! Okay to kick off the first day of public access, here is the highly anticipated post of my first round of in-store purchases! If you read my Fitting Room Try-On post you know that I narrowed it down SIGNIFICANTLY which I am quite proud of myself for doing! Usually it's no holds barred for the Anniversary Sale but since I'm not working a regular 9-5 job anymore I had to reel it in this year, the budget is real y'all (plus when you see what I bought from the beauty dept... you'll understand haha)! This is why I need you to shop from my links, even the few cents I earn from each sale adds up enough for me to be able to keep bringing you awesome content, as well as stay home full time with my baby, Stella.. So, thank you for that!
I included sizing and fit info, but if I miss anything, please ask away in the comments below! I'm here to help! I normally wear a size MEDIUM in tops and third pieces.
If an item is sold out but you still want it, please let me know and I will keep an eye out for re-stocks. I am happy to individually message you the moment an item comes back in stock since I'll be on the website most of the day linking items for you all! The jeans I'm wearing are on sale in a lighter wash which I'll link HERE. The leopard shoes are from last year's Anniversary Sale but theres another amazing, very similar, equally as cute version this year linked HERE!
Ok this tee is the perfect top for layering under cardis! I love the peek of stripes at the bottom of the sleeves, plus it's SUPER affordable... like, under $20 sooo I went back and ordered a few more colors in my size. I went a size up with this top since the sleeves run a little slim and also because I want to be able to tuck, and tie, etc. so here I'm wearing a Large!
This cardi was a littlemsplurge for me, but soooo worth it. It's one of those items that I've been loving and wanting for years but I've never been able to buy it in time before it sells out completely... so annoying! It was one of this first things I bought this year because I HAD to get my hands on it even for the price because they never go on sale besides during the Anniversary Sale even though they're an item that Nordstrom has in perpetual stock. It is seriously cozy. I'm wearing a Medium!
There is always a version of this t-shirt every year and this year it is just as amazing as always! Perfectly slouchy, perfect weight, length, everything! I got four different colors since it sold out so fast last year and re-stocks were sloooowwww. This year Nordstrom has been ON IT with re-stocks so this tee is still available off and on in all sizes and colors! I got my true Medium and it is perfect! I've already been wearing these tee's a ton in the 100 degree weather here in Portland. They are a versatile item that you'll get use out of year-round.
This cardigan is one of those items that took a second for people to catch on to but once it was discovered it blew up. I know it sold out once but it's currently in stock so hurry and grab your size, I'm wearing my true Medium and it is perfect. Reasons why it's a no brainer: 1. it has pockets, 2. it has a HOOD! RUN.
This top is one of those undiscovered gems! Fully in stock in all colors and totally under-appreciated! This was one of my favorite finds from the sale and if I have it in my budget I want to buy a couple more colors! I got my true size, Medium.
Windowpane Top (currently sold out) // Boyfriend Blazer
This top and boyfriend blazer is my favorite combo that I purchased! I love them paired together. I got my true size in the top but sized down to a Small in the boyfriend blazer! I exchanged this charcoal color for the lighter grey color after I took this picture. Both are amazing but I already have a very similar piece to the charcoal color shown in the picture.
This top sold out SO fast! I originally bought it in three colors but I returned two because I thought it was excessive... now I regret it so bad! I sized up to a large in this one for a more oversized fit. Medium was already a little baggy on me but I wanted to be able to tuck in, tie in a knot, layer, etc. for fall so large worked well for my purposes! Otherwise grab your true size!
Blush Cardigan // Lace Trim Cami (currently sold out), Similar
I'm wearing my true medium in this cardigan. The color is so beautiful and is showing true in the photo! It is wool, alpaca and elastane so not only is this sweater super soft it is also stretchy. SO comfy! The lace cami I sized up to a large since I'm still breastfeeding soooo... no explanation necessary lol.
Definitely size down in this boyfriend cardi! I'm wearing a small here. I sized up to a Large in the lace trim cami.
I know I reiterate this in every Anniversary Sale post buuuutttttt... if you see an item you even KIND OF like, don't hesitate to buy it! Things sold out so fast on the first day of early access and they sell out just as quickly with re-stocks. My shopping suggestion (remember I used to work at Nordstrom as a manager) is to buy online and pick up in store! That way you don't even need to brave the crowds. You can buy everything you want, have it ready for you at your convenience and then try it on quickly before you leave the store so you know what to keep and what to return then and there! It is such an amazing feature to the Nordstrom website and just one of the many reasons I love shopping at Nordstrom. They just make everything extra convenient!
