What I Bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale This Year

  I am SO excited to share today what I got from the Early Access Nordstrom Sale and girl, I know you are too! This is literally the best holiday sale of the year! I’m like GIDDY to share these things with you. I think partially because last year I was pregnant to THE MAX and this year I’m back in my normal size so it was really fun to shop sale items! And also EVERYTHING IS AMAZING in this sale. Like I’m going out on a limb here and saying this is their best sale yet!

For brevity’s sake, I’m not doing a full write up after each outfit, I’m just telling you what size I bought and if I thought it fitted true to size, etc. I have a bad feeling a lot of these things are going to FLY today so if you like it GET IT. I’m serious, you can always return but once something is gone a lot of times it’s gone. I’ll denote the items below that I think will sell out the quickest just based on what I saw in store yesterday with high / medium / low. Shop accordingly.

Okay, let’s do this!!

Also, do me a solid and ignore the shoe trash in some of the photos. I got so excited to take photos that I forgot about the shoe insert and yes, there they are in most of the photos. Ha! 


Free People Orchid Sweater + AG The Legging Ripped Jeans

Shown with: BP. Tonya Open Toe Mules

Free People Sweater: I’m in the medium. It fits true to free people size, slouchy. I’d size down if you are petite, stay true for a slouchy/ careless fit.

SELL OUT RISK: MEDIUM

AG The Legging Ankle Ripped Jeans: I was hoping they’d have these again! MY FAVORITE JEANS EVER. Seriously. Get them. I’m in the 29. I feel like they fit a little snug, but this is my normal AG jeans size. Stay true to size, they will stretch.

SELL OUT RISK: HIGH

Hinge Cross Front Sweater

Also shown: AG Legging Ripped Jeans / BP. Tonya Open Toe Mules

Hinge Surplice Sweater: I’m in the medium. It is a closer fit on me than the model because of my boobs. It fits true to size, with a little wiggle room. If you are petite or have a smaller chest, size down. Note: this material is a lightweight feel. Not a true sweater but heavier than a summer weight.

PS: This top is breastfeeding friendly!!

WEEKEND SELL OUT RISK: LOW

Trouve Rib Funnel High Neck Sweater

Also shown: Dolce Vita Tommi Perf Booties / AG Legging Ripped Jeans

Trouve Rib Funnel High Neck Sweater: I am in the medium. It’s a loose fit but true to size!

SELL OUT RISK: SUPER HIGH

Halogen Boiled Wool Open Front Jacket

Also shown: BP. Lace CamisoleAG Legging Ripped Jeans / BP. Tonya Open Toe Mules

Halogen Boiled Wool Open Front Coat: I sized down in this. It fits pretty large. I am in the small. The medium was too big, and I’m usually a medium / 8 in coats so take that as you will. I suggest size down one.

SELL OUT RISK: HIGH

Halogen Varsity Stripe Cardigan

Also shown: BP Lace Trim CamisoleLucky Brand Yabba Wedge Booties / AG Leggings Ripped Jeans

Halogen Varsity Striped Cardigan: I am in the medium. This fits true to size.

SELL OUT RISK: MEDIUM

Leith Tie Trousers

Also shown: Topshop Cropped Tee* + BP. Tonya Open Toe Mules

Leith Tie Trousers: I sized up to the large for these. I don’t actually think that they fit true to their size chart, I found the large to be more like an 8. I have a rounder tummy though and these fit best for me. I’d stay true to size if you have a smaller waist, but if you carry weight in your hips or tummy, size up one.

SELL OUT RISK: MEDIUM

Caslon Rounded V-Neck Tee

Caslon Rounded V Neck Tee: THIS TEE IS THE BEST! And it’s $17.90! I sized up in this tee to a large because I am an insane person and love drapey!!! It fits true to size though, so only if you want it to be drapey size up. The medium fit well too, I’m just weird like that. True to size.

SELL OUT RISK: MEDIUM TO HIGH

Dolce Vita Tommi Perforated Booties

Dolce Vita Tommi Perforated Bootie: Hands down my favorite shoe I purchased. They are SO soft and so comfortable. The suede leather already kind of worn-in feeling and I seriously did not want to take these off. If you have one bootie to buy, it’s this one!! True to size.

SELL OUT RISK: SUPER HIGH

BP. Tonya Open Toe Mules

BP. Tonya Open Toe Mules: Fits true to size! This one comes in 4 colors and I was this close to getting the grey but I got the nude blush instead! Still dreaming about the grey though!

Vince Darlington Flats

I was not able to get these yesterday, because my size was already gone! But I bought them this morning online! I have been WISHING for these flats to come back around since 2014!!!! I am serious, these are my favorite flats in the world. Well worth the purchase price! I sized down a half size to a 9.5. I’d suggest a half size down at least.

Sell out risk: High

    Heading to Nordstrom after work. I should’ve taken the day off; as it is a national holiday at our house. My kids have known the game plan for Thursday all week. Wish me luck! 😉

    I love the Dolce Vita booties! What color socks (if any) do you wear with them, seeing as they’re perforated? Curious because I’m thinking about snagging them if they’re still available when the sale goes public!

      Same question here – I’m always drawn to this style but then I wonder about the sock situation and chicken out!

      • Kendi Everyday says:

        I was wearing them no socks there but a no-show sock would be fine! I have black ones and tried it out and it was good. I mean sure, if you look really hard at my feet yeah you could see something but you’d be a really special person if you were looking that close at a stranger’s feet! LOL.

      I wear no-show or those annoying liner socks (YEAH I SAID IT, THEY ARE ANNOYING). So the ones that you can also wear with flats, do you know what I’m talking about?? But I think if you wore a darker sock, like a black or even a neutral you’d be fine. I just wouldn’t go full athletic sock in that bootie. LOL. Giggling at that image.
