A Spring Haul and Try-On With Nordstrom!
I went to Nordstrom recently and stocked up on some cute goodies for Spring the other day, I was in desperate need of tops and I also was looking to add some color and variety into my very neutral, very basics-heavy wardrobe. There were so many fun pieces to choose from in their trend shop and I’m so excited to share how they look, fit, and their prices with you! Can you tell I’m loving a good wrap blouse these days? I can’t resist, they’re just so comfortable and flattering!
This bag was the first item I picked up. If you know me well, you know I love a fun statement piece and what better way to make a statement than with your handbag? This one is vegan leather, under $50 and has a cross-body strap so you can wear it hands free! The canvas insert is removable if you want to change up the look of the bag (might lose a lipgloss or two through those holes though lol).
Every time I see a good leopard print piece I have to give it a chance! This top has so many elements that I LOVE. It has a draped or wrap-front, with a collar and buttons. Yes to ALL OF THIS! Plus the print is good, sometimes leopard print can look tacky or overdone and I could totally see this worn in an office setting with trousers like these or even a pencil skirt. so cute! I normally would have gotten a large in a top like this but medium was all that was available in my store, although the sleeves are a touch short on me it still fits well everywhere else, so if you aren’t super broad shouldered (like I am), I’d stick with your regular size. The material is polyester and a tiny bit of spandex but it really doesn’t have much stretch at all.
This top was tricky to photograph but it is my favorite piece that I picked up! It comes in four colors and is affordable, comfortable, versatile and best of all, cute! It is longer in the back than most other tops of it’s style so you can feel secure wearing it with leggings. I tied mine tighter than they had it in the store, but you can loosen up the knot for a more slouchy feel. If you’re between sizes definitely size down, I got a medium which is my true size and it fits well when I tighten the knot, but I could have gotten away with a small if necessary. It is the softest material too… it is part polyester but the magic ingredient is the viscose that gives the fabric a soft and stretchy feel!
Another wrap top! This one is so different to me, but I was drawn to the color and although I don’t have a ton of polka dot pieces I’m obsessed with them! This top is SO flattering with the tie being right at the small part of your waist. It is cropped so unless you like to show some skin, high waisted jeans like these pictured are necessary. You can see that the sleeves are a tiny bit short on me, and I’m sure it’s because I am so broad shouldered and long-armed. I sized up to a large for arm length and torso length but it is a tiny bit baggy through the middle (I just tied it tighter, and it looks just fine). I’d say shoot for your true size unless you are super long like I am! The fabric is rayon and has zero stretch, but it is flowy enough that there is plenty room to move!
I am still waiting on my red tank top and my tan sandals to arrive in the mail but I will certainly update this post when they come in!
Thanks for reading!
