Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Hits and Misses (Part 2)

Halogen Open Front V-Neck Topper [$128.00 —-> $84.90] Wearing size small — I would personally size down one size (I ended up getting the XS) because I’m not going to be wearing heavy layers underneath in Arizona and I like a more fitted look. If you’re planning on wearing lots of layers I would suggest ordering your normal size.

Halogen Relaxed Slub Knit U-Neck Tee [$25.00 —-> $15.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen me post about this coat. It is hands down my favorite find from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It was one of those items that didn’t catch my eye when browsing the sale online but when I saw it in person, I immediately tried it on. The color is such a gorgeous coral-red and it’s light enough to wear in the Fall and Winter in warmer climates. It’s kind of like a jacket, coat, and blazer all wrapped into one. It also comes in four other colors and you can’t beat the under $100 price tag!

And do you recognize the top I’m wearing? I’ve had it on in multiple Instagram photos because it’s so easy to throw on. I also have it in black and white and have worn them both constantly since I purchased them a few weeks ago. It comes in a total of 24 colors and the $15.90 price tag is hard to beat!

1.State Long Sleeve Surplice Romper [$139.00 —-> $88.90]

Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Rompers are tricky for me. I’m 5’8″ and have a long torso, so oftentimes I’ll try them on only to find that my butt is literally hanging out. Yeah, no thanks. Well, I’m happy to share with my fellow tall girls that I finally found a romper for us! Not to mention, the print is super cute. 🙂

Free People ‘Masquerade Cuff’ Long Sleeve Thermal Top [$68.00 —-> $44.90]

Wearing size small — Runs small, order one size up

I really wanted to like this shirt but it just didn’t work for me. It was seriously skin tight. Like, I know it’s supposed to be fitted but it felt like it was stuck to me. If you’re like me and love the sleeve details, I’d highly recommend sizing up.

Hinge Stripe Cape [$128.00 —-> $84.90]

Wearing size X-Small/Small — Fits TTS

Although it’s nowhere near time to wear this in Arizona, I absolutely love this belted cape! It’ll be great to wear during the Fall and Winter months and the belt can be changed out if you ever want to switch it up. I love the neutral colors because you can wear it with so many items in your closet.

Kenneth Cole New York Drop Shoulder Plaid Wool Blend Coat [$198.00 —-> $119.90]

Wearing size small — Fits TTS

The colors in this coat are gorgeous in person, this photo definitely doesn’t do it justice. If I lived in colder climate area I would definitely invest in this coat. The one thing I would change is to have the coat be belted because it’s pretty shapeless without one.

Pleione Cowl Neck Sleeveless Top [$58.00 —-> $37.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

I wasn’t expecting to love this shirt as much as I did! It looks a little frumpy online but it is so cute in person. It’s a great piece that can easily go from work to play with a few quick changes. It also comes in four other colors that are perfect for Fall.

Pleione High/Low V-Neck Blouse [$68.00 —-> $44.90] Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Two by Vince Camuto Seamed Back Leggings [$49.00 —-> $31.90] Wearing size XS — Runs one size large

I definitely have an obsession with this top. As far as blouses go, it was my favorite pick of the sale. In my last post, I shared a similar top (this tunic) which I love but this one is even better. It’s slightly dressier and more slimming and comes in four other colors.

And can we talk about these leggings for a quick sec?! I’d asked an employee if there were any leggings that she’d recommend that were part of the sale and she brought me these. They’re amazing! They’re a little bit thicker than your average leggings so they provide plenty of coverage and they don’t lose their stretch. I love them!

Two by Vince Camuto Crinkle Yarn Cardigan with Faux Fringe [$119.00 —-> $78.90]

Halogen Relaxed Slub Knit U-Neck Tee [$25.00 —-> $15.90] Wearing size small — If you prefer a more fitted look, I’d suggest sizing down one size but I preferred a more slouchy look with this cardigan.

I loved this cardigan! The fringe details at the bottom keep it from being boring but it’s still basic enough to be worn with just about anything. It’s also super cozy and comfy!


These next two dresses aren’t part of the Anniversary Sale but I saw them while I was at Nordstrom and just had to try them on. I took a few photos of them while I was in the fitting room trying everything else on and thought I’d share. 🙂

CeCe by Cynthia Steffe Floral Print Flutter Sleeve Dress [$128.00] 

Wearing size 2 — Fits TTS

So this dress isn’t part of the Anniversary Sale but I saw it, fell in love with it, and had to try it on. I keep trying to think of places I could wear it to so that I can go back and buy it. It would be perfect to wear to an early Fall wedding or a baby or bridal shower. The sleeves are adorable and the colors in the floral pattern are perfect for Fall.

Wearing size small — Fits TTS

Another dress I wish I had something to wear to because it’s so freaking cute! However, I still wanted to share in case you have a more exciting social life than I do and are looking for a fun new dress. The colors are so vibrant in person and I love how flattering the shape of the dress is.
