Dressing Room Diaries: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’m not going to lie. I took these photos mostly to prove that I WAS ALONE IN A DRESSING ROOM. No crying baby. No whining toddler. It was glorious. The fact that it’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was kind of just the icing on the cake. 😉

It was a whirlwind try-on session, but I found some super cute things and wanted to share! I’m including fit notes underneath each photo, along with what I purchased (so far).

I’m in the market for tops and as you guys know, I LOVE anything cozy, easy and super comfortable. So, you’ll see a lot of those. 

I knew I wanted to purchase these jeans, so I wore them with most of the tops (which worked out, since they really do go with everything). In the second round, I’m wearing my FAVORITE leggings of all time. If you haven’t scooped up a pair yet, now is the time. They’re only $35 and they WILL sell out!

I’ll be sharing my entire Nordstrom Anniversary Sale haul next week! And tell me: did you guys find anything amazing??

Free People Sweater (Orig. $98 / Now $64.90) | AG Denim (Orig. $225/ Now $149.90)

SWEATER FIT: True to size. Size up for a slouchy fit. Wearing Small. Purchased.

DENIM FIT: TTS.  Perfect length (hit at ankle). Very stretchy and comfy. Wearing size 26. Purchased.

Free People Split Back Turtleneck (Orig. $68/ Now $44.90)

SELLING OUT! Runs big. Wearing Small. Super comfy and long. Didn’t purchase bc they didn’t have navy in store and now it’s sold out in my size. (tears) 

Hinge Lace Top (Orig. $89 / Now $58.90)

So cute. Perfect for date night. Runs true (shorter than most tops these days though). Wearing small. Buttons run down the back. See through so wear a cami underneath. Purchased!

Chelsea28 Bell Sleeve Sweater (Orig. $89 / Now $58.90)

While this runs pretty TTS, the design and material make it pretty form-fitting. (wearing a small) I don’t think sizing up would help. It is still VERY cute. Didn’t purchase but still thinking about it 😉

Chelsea28 Bell Sleeve Poplin Top (Orig. $89 / Now $58.90)

Another bell sleeve! Fits tts, wearing a small. Casual top but sleeves make it dressy. Cute but didn’t purchase because I don’t have anywhere to wear it!

Free People Ruffle Hem Military Jacket (Orig. $148 / Now $99.90)

Runs big! Wearing a Small but need XS. Free People jackets always fit so well. Very cute! Love the ruffle detail. Didn’t purchase because I have a lot of jackets. 🙂

Hinge Ruffle Cold Shoulder Top (Orig. $69 / Now $45.90)

Fits TTS (wearing a small). LOVE this top! It’s a soft, thin sweater material and flattering without being too form-fitting. Purchased!

cupcakes and cashmere Danton Lace-Up Sweatshirt (Orig. $105 / Now $69.90)

TTS but should size up for a relaxed, slouchy fit. Wearing small. Super soft and cute but probably not worth the price… Didn’t purchase.

Rails Phoenix Embroidered Chambray Shirt (Orig. $188 / Now $124.90)

Runs a tad large, but I wouldn’t size down. Wearing XS. A cute twist on the classic. Soft as butter! Embroidery on each arm and back. Purchased!

Gibson bell sleeve cozy fleece pullover (Orig. $59 / Now $39.90) | Zella Live In High Waist Leggings (Orig. $54 / Now $35.90)

Top (runs big – wearing XS). SO cozy and cute! Fleece material makes it feel like loungewear. Purchased!

Leggings (run a tad big. wearing XS). PERFECT. If you get one thing, it should be these. Purchased 2 pairs!

Halogen Long Sleeve Knit Tunic (Orig. $39 / Now $24.90)

Runs a tad big. Wearing XS. Longer in the back and covers the booty. A super cute basic. Comes in 7 colors! Purchased.
