Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018: Dressing Room Diaries

Top (Size Small)  | Jeans (Size 29)  |  Booties (Size 7.5)

It’s been one week since the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has launched and I know we have all been frantically inventorying our closets, buying, trying, returning, and really figuring out what we need! I have to say, I bought a LOT, but am still in the process of evaluating what to keep! During Early Access launch, I got to go do some try ons at Nordstrom Fashion Place and did share it on my Instagram stories,  but now that Public Access is launching (of which I anticipate or hope there are good RESTOCKS), I wanted to just write this post up so you have all my sizing info and thoughts on the pieces in one place!

Top (Size Small – Sold out in this color but still available in navy)  |  Jeans (Size 29, but big so size down)  |  Booties (Size 7.5 but size up if you’re in between sizes)

One of my fave pieces from the sale is this top, because it is all sorts of beautiful fall florals and pattern mixing in one! It really is such a unique and pretty top!

Cardigan (Size Small)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 29 but size down)  | Booties (Size 7.5 size up if between sizes)

For this look, I just added a cardigan over it in similar color tones! This cardigan is super affordable and comes in a ton of colros!

Top (Size up to Medium)  |  Jeans (Size 29)  |  Booties (Size 7.5 – TTS)

This sweater comes in a bunch of colors and is just a great slouchy top. Would be super cute with a bralette. I sized up so it would have more of that oversized look. And these studded booties? they definitely came home with me!!

Sweater (Size 6)  |  Jeans (Size 29)  |  Booties (Size 7.5 – TTS)

There were a couple fun striped sweaters, but this one was not my fave. After seeing the one below, I thought the colors in this one were not as classic, but they are still fun!

Sweater (Size Small – Sold Out)  |  Jeans (Size 29 – TTS)  |  Booties (Size 7.5)

This was the striped sweater that I loved and kept! It is more neutral colors and reminds me of the H&M sweater that was so popular and sold out fast! The sleeves on this sweater are not tight, they go out a little bit, justFYI!

Top (Size 6)  |  Jeans (Size 29 runs big so size down)  |  Mules (Size 7.5)

When I saw this top in the Lookbook, I fell in love! They make it in a skirt and dress, but I felt that the top would be most versatile for me. I already got some pictures with it and it is just stunning!

Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 29 – TTS)  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

I also am obsessed with top because it really shows the waist. I could probably have sized up to a Medium as well, it was very fitted with the buttons. Also – these snakeskin shoes might be my new “leopard” of this upcoming year. They match SO many different outfits!

Cardigan (Size XS/S)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 29 but need to size down)  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

These basic tees comes in a ton of colors and I snagged all the striped ones. At $11, they are SUCH a good deal! And I am loving the burgundy color of the cardigan and how it looks like a knit sweater.


Blazer (Size 6)  |  Top (Size Small)

For my friends who wear work clothes often, I thought that this blazer would be a hit! The pink color is JUST fabulous!! It run pretty TTS.

Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 29 but need to size down)  |  Mules (Size 7.5)

I definitely snagged this striped top even though I probably own too many. And these mules!? I snagged them in the more pink color – I love the unique shape and I think it elongates your leg!

Jacket (Size Medium)  |  Top (Size 6)

If you are looking for a really soft nicely made leather jacket, this one might be for you. It is a little bit longer, but gosh it’s like the softest leather.

Jacket (Size Medium)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 29)  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

Jacket (Size Medium in Mushroom)  |  Top (Size Small)

If you are looking for a trendy leather jacket that is affordable, THIS one is it! It also has a removable hood which is neat. I got it in mushroom since I still have last year’s black leather jacket.

Jumpsuit (Size Medium)  |  Bootie (Size 7.5 – TTS)

You knew I couldn’t do a try on without a jumpsuit, right!? This gorgeous one is a beautiful color and like that it has a tie! It was a little long on me, but it’s nothing heels can’t fix!

Cardigan (Size Small)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 6)  |  Flats (Size )

This cardigan isn’t talked about much, but I LOVE the sleeves and grey color. It’s also super soft. These pants are a subtle plaid and would be great or for dressing up!

Sweater (This is a Medium but Small would work better)  |  Jeans (Size 6)  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

This sweater, I also feel like is an underdog, but it’s SO stinking cute I want it in every color, foreals!!!

Dress (Size Medium)  |  Sneakers (Size 7.5 – Color Elemental Rose / Gunmetal)

This might be one of my FAVE dresses!! When I saw a sneak peek of it, I knew I had to have it because I would wear it a ton. And these pink sneakers are also adorable and comfy!

Jacket (Size Medium but small could work)  |  Leggings (Size Medium)

This is cutest little fur jacket, I love that it’s a bit more cropped and fitted than the Wubby fleece for example.

Top (Size Small)  |  Leggings (Size Medium)  |  Sneakers (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

I know a ton of you are looking for athleisure wear so I wanted to try on this top for you! It’s this years style and I love that it’s a little cropped. Paired it with my fave black leggings of all time, which happen to be on sale too! these Adidas sneakers run HUGE and I also love the Beige color.

Dress (Size Medium)  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

Who remembers the Target dress that’s similar to this!? If you missed that one, this is a great alternative!

Cardigan (Size Small)  |  Top (Size )  |  Jeans (Size )  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)  |  Crossbody

You know my love for pink and the fact that I already have a ton of pink cardigans! BUT, if I didn’t have a pink cardigan, if this is in stock, SNAG IT!

Coat (Size 6)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size )  | Flats (Size 7.5 – Size down if in between sizes)

I really wanted to love this coat, especially in yellow, but unfortunately I was not a fan of the fabric and afraid of the wash instructions!

Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 6 – Size down)  |  Flats (Size 7 – Size down half a size)

Wit & Wisdom jeans, I am a new fan and am in LOVE! They are a Nordstrom exclusive brand and have an elastic waistband for comfort! They are great for maternity, post partum or just sucking in that mom pooch many years after having a baby!

Cardigan (Size Small)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 8 but need to size down)  |  Booties (Size )

These little bootcut Wit & Wisdom were slightly out of my comfort zone but I felt that hey elongated my legs, which is always a plus! Also, if you are looking for a super sleek and classic white bootie, this is the pair to get!

Cardigan (Size 2 – Size way down! – Sold out in most sizes/colors)  |  Top (Size Small)  |  Jeans (Size 29 – TTS)  |  Flats (Size )

I have to say, this was probably the most popular cardigan of the sale! White and pink could not stay in stock! Also, I would normally get a 6, but a 2 and 4 works well for me, so beware! SIZE DOWN!

Henley (size Medium, obsessed with the pink and camo prints) | AG Jeans (Size 29)

Cami (Size S)

Button Down (Size S) | AG Boyfriend Jeans (Size 28, size down)

These plaid button downs come in a ton of prints and are a bit oversized! I am obsessed! Also, these are the BEST and only boyfriend jeans you need in your wardrobe, size down!

Tunic (Size S)

This Free People tunic is PERFECT with any of your leggings!!

Lace Top (Size S)

This top is sooo pretty and comes in a bunch of colors!!


Suede Jacket (Size Medium)

Obsessed with this green suede jacket for Fall! Is a great layering piece and will dress up any outfit!!
