Clothes, Beauty, Accessories, Shoes + More.

Happy shopping day to all the card holders! I was direct messaging with a lot of y’all and it’s so fun to see how excited you guys are. It gets me excited to create all the content for you! Basically, you’re messages totally helped me push through my dry-shampooed, cross eye’d state lol.

In yesterdays post, I shared “19 Styled Outfits from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale” using a bunch of my favorite buys. As I mentioned in that post, I had the opportunity to shop early this year, so I’ve had the time to really think about my purchases and today, I wanted to share a few more looks, things I think will sell out super quickly and then break everything down into category for you guys so you can shop effectively!

Tops/tees.

  1. LaceCami: These sold out SO fast last year. Grab one while you can! Personally, I’m a fan of the black and white.
  2. White tee:This is hands down the best white tee in the sale (I tried several). Bestquality and a greatpricepoint(xs).
  3. Stripe tee:Same tee instripes(xs). These aregreat for wearing now andlayering undercardigansin the fall.
  4. Twist tank:Again, I love this tank to wear now or layer in the fall. It has a cute twisted/tied looking bottom and is under $20. It also comes in a few different colorsincluding black.(s)
  5. Sleeveless sweater:Thissweater tank is sopretty and looks super high-end to me (only $29)! This brand had asimilar tank on sale last year and it sold out so fast. Love that you can dress this one up oreven wear it to work.Fit:I got a small in this. Ifyou’re bigger busted andbetween sizes, go up.
  6. Floral tunic:This is one of my favorite buysfrom thewhole sale!It’s soflattering and can be worn as a tunic (with denim, leggings) or by itself as a dress with booties etc.Fit:I got an XS which is perfect (I’m 5’3), but ifyou’re tall I would size up forlength.
  7. Flowy henley:This is a staplefrom the sale. Long enough to beworn with leggings and alsosuper cute with shorts like I styled it in this post.(xs)
  8. Long Sleeve Rib Tee: I love this tee as a layering piece for fall and winter. It’s super affordable and comes in multiple colors.

Sweaters/Cardigans.

I was superthoughtful in my sweater andcardigan buys this year. Ireallynarrowed it down the my ultimatefavorites anddidn’t bother with the rest.

  1. BP. Cardigan:Greataffordable cardigan. It comes in a few colors.(xs)
  2. Grey V-Neck Sweater: (xs)
  3. Free People Knit Tunic: This is a must!! This was my favorite sweater from ALL of last year! It’s the best. It goes with everything, is great quality, super warm and I wore it 24/7 basically. Iloved it so much I ended upgetting it in several colorslast year and got thegrey this year.(xs/s)
  4. Leopard cardigan:Such agreat staple! This isdefinitely going to be one to that will sell out fast, so grab it up fast ifit’s on your wish list.(xs)
  5. Madewell cardigan:This is another long-time favorite of mine! They come back yearafter year and are so cozy andtimeless. The perfect classiccardigan! Ihave a few colors, so I snagged the simple grey this year.(xs)
  6. Cowl neck sweater:I also love thiscowl neck sweater. Iended up returning it because I prefer the longer fit of the free people one, butit’s a great option if you liketheshorter cut.(XS)

Coats/Jackets.

  1. ALL-SAINTS leather jacket:Splurgeworthy!This was one of my splurges and Icouldn’t love it more. This is my fave brand of leather jackets, so when I saw this I was pumped. It feels like butter and is the prettiest blue/grey shade. Worth penny in my opinion.Fit:I go for a 4 in this, I don’t like it to fit too restricted on my arms incase I want to wear a sweater under it etc.
  2. WaterResistant Raincoat:I don’t know how “resistant” this is, Iwouldn’t wear it in a full on downpour but man is it chic. It looks really high-end and is only $118! I got the mustard color,very big this fall, but they also have black, green etc.Fit:runs big, I got an XS
  3. North Face Waterproof Parka:Ididn’t end up keeping thisbecause I don’t need it, but if you are in need of a great coat this is isamazing and I highlyrecommend!(S)
  4. Patagonia:I’m a big fan of Patagonia and couldn’t pass up this cozy zip-up! (S)

Denim.

I got 4 pair of denim that Iabsolutely lovethis year. Denim tends to bepricey, so the sale is theperfect time to buy! I am VERY picky when it comes to denim. I need them to be flattering, comfy and very versatile.

  1. AG Skinny Jean:These are hands down the best, simple skinny jean from the sale in my opinion.They’re a medium wash, supercomfortable, stretchy andridiculouslyflattering. They’re the perfect day to night jean that you can wear causal ordressed up.Fit:They run TTS, wearing my normal 25.
  2. Madewell ButtonFront Skinny Jeans: These are my other favorite skinnies from the sale. They’re still considered a skinny jean but they are totally different than the AG. The ankle area is a bit less skinny than the AG and they have an ultra high-waist, button-front! These are a great everyday jean and were one of my top sellers last year (they’re also under $100)!Fit:These run big, so size down 1! I wear a 24.
  3. Levi’s Wedgie Icon High Waist Ankle Jeans:To be honest, Ididn’tthink I liked Levi’s for the longest time. I thinkit’s really all aboutgetting the right fit and sizebecauseI am OBSESSED with these. They are so cute onand the perfect blackpair of denim for fall! They arekind of like a highwaisted mom fit.Fit:They key here is to size up 1. Theyhavezerostretch, so that makes all the difference. I wear a 26.
  4. AG Ex-Boyfriend Jeans:These are so good you guys. For all my girls whoaren’t a fan of thehigh waist denim, this pair is for you. Super cute for causal looksand reallycomfy. Read the reviews!Fit:They run TTS, wearing a 25.
  5. Good America Flare: These are so good you guys. They are super flattering and elongating on the legs.

Shoes.

Iplan on sharing a full postbreaking down the shoes more,but here are myfavorites, all rounded up! The shoes always sell our really quickly, so I wanted to include themtoday.

Boots/Booties. –

  1. Vince Camuto Knee High Boot:(8) These were my favorite thigh high boot option of the sale this year. I definitely think they are most flattering on a more petite frame. I’m 5’3 and they hit me right at or a little above the knee.
  2. Steve Madden Jillian Bootie:(8) I love these booties, they look super high end but are under $100!
  3. Paige Studded Chelsea Boot: (8) My splurge bootie from the sale! I love the edgy look of these and where they hit my leg, they are definitely a little higher than an ankle bootie.
  4. Hunter Chelsea Rain Boot: (8) I love the color of these Hunter’s! I have the classic high Hunter boots but I love a less bulky/easier option for just throwing on.
  5. Vince Camuto Gigietta Bootie:(8) I went with my normal size on this bootie and they fit perfectly. However, if you live somewhere cold and would want to wear with a thicker sock, I would suggest sizing up a half size.
  6. Steven Madden Rockstar Bootie: (8)
  7. Marc Fisher Over the Knee Boot: (8) These are my favorite true over the knee boot from the sale. They are super flattering, the pointed toe really elongates the leg.

Sneakers/Slip-ons.

Adidas Edge Luxe 3 Running Shoe: (8) I loveee these sneakers, I’m a sucker for a white sneaker and even more so for one with a pop of rose gold. I love these for everyday and for working out!

Adidas Swift Run Sneaker: (Mens 5.5, I usually wear an 8) They are super comfortable but I think they are more of an everyday sneakers rather than a workout one in my opinion! I styled these with denim shorts and a tee in my previous post and loved how it looked.

Nike Free TR8 Premium Training Shoe: (8) I’m obsessed with these Nike’s! I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair for months now and these are everything I’ve been looking for! Cute, comfortable, and supportive for working out. I love!

Halogen Leopard Sneakers: (8) Animal print is going to be everywhere this fall and these we’re my favorite leopard print sneaker option! I love the added height and these give me high end sneaker vibes for a way cheaper price.

Caslon Wedge Sneaker: (8) Y’all these are the most comfortable shoe I found during the sale. These are perfect for travel and add a little height!

Classic Slip On Vans (7.5 size down half size)

Flats/Mules.

Steve Madden Studded Loafer – (8) These are hands down my favorite flats that I own! I have these in several other patterns and colors from previous seasons. They are comfortable and hold up great.

Vince Cross Strap Sandal – (8) Another splurge shoe from the sale that I know I will love and wear for years to come.

Accessories.

Michele Watch:These are definitely an investment but sold out SO fast last year and as I mentioned in my IG story, they are so timeless and you’ll literally have them forever! I still have and love mine from 2006 and it’s so similar in shape to the one on this years sale. I went with the gold this year and I love it!

Diamond Bangle:Another investment buy, I treated myself to this as my push present for Kinsley (can you believe I never got one?! lol) She was my real present, but you know what I mean. If you’re going to make a splurge buy like this or the watch, now is definitely your time!

Tan Tote Bag:This was my #1 tote bag pick of the sale! They have a few other pricier ones but honestly, this one was my fave (the cutest) and best price!! Under $50, good quality and will hold a ton!

Brown Crossbody:I only got two bags from the whole sale and this was my cross body pick! It’s amazing quality, creamy leather and so cute for everyday. The brown color is really different and will go with a ton of looks.

Ray-Bans Sunnies:I wear the black and gold of these daily! The silver is a fun switch up an bonus, these are polarized.

Rag+ Bone Sunnies:I LOVE these! They are so fun and different than what I have. This is the pair I was wearing on stories that you guys asked about.

Hats/Scarves.

Leopard Scarf:This is such a cute scarf and really affordable find that I think I’ll get a ton of wear out of this fall!

Taupe+ Snakeskin Hat:I LOVE this hat!! It’ll go with everything and the snakeskin detail is really cute. PSA: t’s an adjustable one size fits all hat.

Black Hat:Classic, cute and will go with everything!
