Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fitting Room Try-On & What I Bought

Sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fitting room try-on session as well as what I bought today! I am only sharing the items that I loved and would recommend. I had a full fitting room, and I’m not linking the items I thought were poor quality, ill-fitting, or just not good. 95% of you said you wanted to see everything in one big haul, so that’s how I’m doing it! ;) I have categorized the pieces to make it easier for you. All sizes I’m wearing will be listed in bold at the end of the description!

COATS & JACKETS

This camo & star jacket is one of my favorite finds from the Nordstrom Sale. The quality is amazing, I love the length, and the material is really great (it’s also waterproof!). This is the perfect fall jacket, and winter for those of you who live in a warmer climate!  SIZE: XS

*So frustrated – this coat is not online yet, I will update as soon as it is! This is the coat I am most excited to find at the sale because it’s a very nice puffer jacket, and an exact dupe for my Moncler jacket. Like i-den-ti-cal. This will definitely sell out, so if you’re in need of a new puffer, get this one before it’s gone! It’s SO good. SIZE: SMALL

I loved this raincoat the second I saw it, the leopard is so fun! The material is a little stiff (but not uncomfortable), but let’s be honest…if you want this, you’re not buying it for comfort ;). They have a matching one for little girls and now I’m super tempted to get both! SIZE: XS

This coat is amazing, looks just like Burberry, and the quality is amazing. This is a very warm wool blend coat. SIZE: XS

This leopard coat is so pretty! It’s soft, warm, and fits so well. The leopard is not over-the-top which I appreciate! SIZE: SMALL

This coat is calling my name ;). Cozy, comfy, and a little longer which I love! Think I’m going to need this one! SIZE: SMALL My store did not have this jacket to try on, but I am obsessed! I think I’m going to order this one (in the taupe) and see how it is! Looks like Max Mara!

 I tried on two trenches, this one (pictured above) and this one. I was really unimpressed with the second option, it was wrinkly, and just did not look good on. So I would skip that one and go with the SE one I’m wearing above! The material on this one is much better, less wrinkly, and I love the details on the back! SIZE: XS

My store did not have many moto jackets to try on, but I loved this one SIZE: SMALL. More of my favorites – this one (a great deal!), this one (looks just like IRO!), and this one (under $100)!

This is one of my favorite jackets from the sale! Love the army look, and the  material is so soft (more pictures of this in the activewear section below). SIZE SMALL

BLAZERS

This blazer is a splurge, but if you’re in the market for a nice blazer, I would 100% recommend this one! The ruched sleeves are amazing, and I love that it can be dressed down with jeans and a tee, or worn to work with dress pants and a blouse! SIZE: 4

This blazer was in the coat/jacket section, but I think it can be worn as a blazer or a jacket. I looove this and can’t believe the price! SIZE: SMALL

This is a super cute, affordable plaid blazer. I have one almost identical to it from last year, and wore it all the time! SIZE: 4

This is the best dupe to the first blazer I posted, and it’s under $100 during the sale. I love this blazer, it’s way better in person. If I don’t end up splurging on the VB blazer I’m definitely snagging this one! I have a feeling this is going to be sold out pretty quickly! SIZE: SMALL

This blazer is so much cuter in person than it looks online, a perfect staple for your closet – an oversized black blazer. I sized up to a medium in this for a boxy fit. SIZE: MEDIUM

Another blazer I loved (honestly so many good ones this year!)! This one is high quality, a higher price-point, and great for anyone who works in an office and is looking for a quality blazer (also has matching pants avail as a suit)! SIZE SMALL

I did not see this blazer at my store, but I LOVE it. I have to make up my mind as to which one I’m going to get, but I love this one – the length is great!

DENIM & BOTTOMS

**Cannot find the photos of denim I took, sorry! But here are the ones I loved that were flattering and great jeans I would recommend! You can see them in some of the sweater/tops photos.

My store did not have the greatest selection for denim, but this pair is amazing. Flattering, comfortable, and great fit/quality. SIZE: 2

This was the other great pair I found, these sell out every year. SIZE: 26

I will be ordering these flares, fingers crossed they’re good! I love flares for fall!

Both pairs of my favorite (faux) leather leggings are part of the sale! This pair is the most comfortable and flattering, and this pair looks like actual leather! Love and recommend both! SIZE SMALL IN BOTH

I’m buying this skirt in all three colors. The price is great, it fits really well, and it can easily be worn  year-round! SIZE: SMALL Wearing it with the moto I linked above and a bodysuit (linked below).

SWEATERS & TOPS

This tunic sweater is one of my favorite finds – ultra cozy, soft, comfortable, and I love the length! One of those easy to throw on sweaters that looks good with everything! This will sell out quickly! SIZE: SMALL

This is the best layering tee. I bought the turtleneck version last year, I’m so happy they released a crew neck. SIZE: SMALL This cardigan is SO soft. A splurge, but one I would recommend if you like to invest in nice sweaters. I would wear this all the time! SIZE: SMALL This hat is fun too ;)

 I love this lightweight duster cardigan. The material is so soft, and I was so surprised by the price ($45!) because it felt much more expensive! SIZE: SMALL This camisole is really pretty with the lace detail, another great deal at $25! I loved the ivory and black. SIZE: SMALL

I love this square neck bodysuit, and it’s only $16 during the sale! So easy to wear with jeans, skirts, or shorts! SIZE: SMALL

If you’re looking for affordable basics, you need this tee! It’s $12 and comes in several great colors – I would get gray, white, and black. SIZE: MEDIUM Also love this cardigan! SIZE: SMALL

Same sweater as above, but plain gray! SIZE SMALL

This oversized sweater is the perfect camel color, I love the fit and the details. Also love the gray! SIZE: SMALL

I love Allsaints, and this sweatshirt jacket is very cool! Could definitely be worn as a jacket in the fall SIZE SMALL (arms were tight, so I should have grabbed a MEDIUM)

The best cashmere cardigan is back this year with an even better style! I bought this two years ago, and so happy they brought it back this year because I’ve worn mine to death! SIZE XS

I wasn’t planning to try this on because I don’t need another thermal lol, but OMG this is probably the comfiest one I’ve ever tried! I love the white, but it comes in a bunch of colors. If you’re looking for a good thermal, definitely snag this one! SIZE SMALL

Loved this leopard cardigan! This is already selling quickly, so grab it while you can. SIZE SMALL

I thought this striped sweater was fun – would be so cute paired with flares for fall! SIZE: SMALL

This sweater dress is really pretty, I love the color, fit, and material. I shouldn’t have eaten a lemon cookie from Nordstrom Cafe before trying it on ;), but I love the versatility. SIZE: SMALL If you don’t have a great denim jacket, I would highly recommend this one! I love the longer length. SIZE: SMALL

I know I will wear this cardigan all the time, super easy to throw on over a tee or camisole. Only $44 during the sale! SIZE: SMALL Here’s the $12 tee again! These jeans were awful – the Good American flares. I thought they were going to be so cute, but no bueno! Avoid!

Story of my life with this tee ;). So cute! SIZE: SMALL

These fuzzy pullovers get me every year! Soo cozy – the gray is so good! SIZE SMALL

I love the color of this sweater – so gorgeous! In person it’s an even prettier green, but for some reason when photographed it looks more of a blue/green (even the photo on the website is not the true color). It also comes in lavender! SIZE: SMALL

I was really impressed by this sweater. It’s extremely comfortable, and I love the ribbed details and heathered fabric. It comes in 5 colors – the hot pink is gorgeousss, but I’ll be grabbing the oatmeal and the brown. Great staple for fall. SIZE: SMALL

This cardigan is a great price ($31) and comes in 5 colors! Here is the great layering tee again!

ACTIVEWEAR

I usually don’t shop the activewear section during this sale, but am so happy I did this year! This is the section that surprised me the most – so many good finds!

These leggings sell out every single year, so don’t want if you’re in need of new leggings. These are a cult favorite, and the price is amazing during the sale! I purchased these as well as this cropped tee (in black and white). I need new workout gear, and love these finds! SIZE: SMALL IN LEGGINGS AND TEE

This sweatshirt has such a cute slit detail and I love the length, especially to wear with leggings! Definitely an activewear staple for me! SIZE: SMALL

Woah, this is my new favorite workout tank! Incredibly soft, lightweight material will be perfect for working out. Can’t recommend this one enough & only $25! SIZE: SMALL

These joggers are top 3 favorite pieces I found for myself during the sale! I almost overlooked these, thinking they wouldn’t be cute on. Wrong! They are the best joggers I’ve ever tried on. Bold statement, but true. They are nice enough to wear out and about and insanely comfy! These will 100% sell out quickly! SIZE: MEDIUM

 I’m all about the cozy jackets when I’m heading to the gym when the weather cools down, and this one is beyond comfortable and cute. I’m obsessed with the ivory, but it also comes in blush! While this is in the activewear section,  you could easily wear it with anything, not just leggings and gym clothes! SIZE: SMALL

I also own this jacket already and would highly recommend it! I’m surprised to see it on sale! SIZE: XS

This cropped sweatshirt is so cute, I love it! A little different than any other workout sweatshirts I own. SIZE: SMALL

This sweatshirt cardigan is SO soft, I am definitely going to wear this all the time to and from the gym during those in-between months when it’s chilly, but not enough for a jacket! I will also be lounging around the house in this! SIZE SMALL

LOUNGEWEAR 

This set (sweatshirt & joggers) is amazing – so soft! Every single print/pattern is so fun! I’m not buying more than one, so I ended up with the leopard, but also dying over the camo! SIZE SMALL IN TOP & PANTS

BAREFOOT DREAMS never disappoints during the sale! This is the best time to buy anything BFD because it will sell out, and it rarely goes on sale! I’m stocking up for Christmas gifts! I love this cozy cardi! SIZE S/M

The BAREFOOT DREAMS BLANKETS are a part of the sale this year and I cannot believe it! The leopard one I have (my absolute favorite!), and this new camo one is so good! These will 100% be sold out fast!

If you don’t want to spend that much on a blanket, I found two other amazing options!

This faux fur blanket is SO soft, I couldn’t believe the price! I thought for sure it would be over $100.

This chunky throw is so pretty and looks so much more expensive than it is ($65!). 

One of the best deals of the sale IMO are these Ugg slippers! I’m buying a new pair because mine are trashed and I love my EMU slips, but want a closed toe pair for winter!

This jogger set (hoodie & pants) is so fun and one that you could wear out of the house if you wanted to run errands in it ;). SIZE SMALL IN TOP & PANTS (could have used a MEDIUM in the pants)

ACCESSORIES

This scarf is so much prettier in person than it looks online IMO. I would have never ordered it based on the pic online, but it’s amazing! You’ll love it, and you can’t beat the price!

I’m buying this hat, but it wasn’t at my store to try on! I have the straw version and love it! Also – I’ve seen every other blogger in a different hat, so I’m happy to find something different that not everyone has!

Loved this little crossbody bag – the leather is so pretty, the brown was my favorite of the three colors, but the gray was a close second.

This shoulder bag is great – I love the color & it can hold all of your daily essentials easily! The color is so good.

If you need a tote, I love this one (pictured) and this one (amazing deal during the sale! I already own this one and love it!). Both are great options at different price points.

Luggage is always great to buy during the sale, I loved these sets!

My store had a terrible selection for shoes. I found two pairs of boots I loved: these boots (true to size), and these boots (run a little big, could go down 1/2 size).

I also loved these flats – true to size! So gorgeous!

I’m obsesssed with these boots and ordering them ASAP.

If you need a good pair of black boots, grab these! Classic, high quality, and love the cut!

These are my favorite sneakers (under $100), so so comfy! True to size.

BEAUTY
We will be doing a separate post for beauty, but wanted to share a few items now that I think will go fast!

The Light Stim – can’t believe this is part of the sale! My esthetician swears by this instead of getting facial filler and her skin is unreal! I almost bought it a few weeks ago and now I’m glad I waited! This really works!

I bought this mirror for my mom a couple years ago and she said it’s one of the best gifts she’s ever received! So happy it’s part of the sale again!

The GLOpro – one of our favorite beauty tools! If you don’t have it, get it! 

CT Pillowtalk Trio – this is one of our favorite nude lipsticks, and they’re selling it in a trio this year for the sale – you can get the liner, lipstick, and gloss for $60 (it’s a $78 value)!

I have worn my slip silk pillowcase to death…literally it’s tattered like a child’s blanky lol! I’ll definitely be grabbing a new one during the sale!
