2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases & Outfit Ideas

By Monday, July 24, 2017 8

Happy Monday! I’m so excited that all of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases arrived so I can finally show you guys what each piece looks like in person (well, as close as we can get with photos anyway!) I’ll be going through each item on this post and reviewing size, quality and styling tips. Since the sale opened to the public on Friday, many pieces are selling out quickly, so unfortunately a few of these are no longer in stock. However, there’s also such a high volume of exchanges and returns that if you keep checking on your favorites, you may still be able to score them, so don’t give up hope yet!Halogen Waffle Knit Cashmere Wrap

Sale Price: $125.90 **IN STOCK**

This cozy wrap was part of the sale last year and I bought it in gray. The oversized style makes it so versatile for wearing multiple ways (see below) and it’s 100% cashmere. I wished I had also purchased the soft brown last year, so I made sure to snag it right away this time—the color is so great for fall. I also used this a lot when we traveled, particularly for flights since it doubles as a blanket!

Lush Raw Edge Tee

Sale Price $15.90 **LIMITED AVAILABILITY**

My tee is such a steal at $15 and I’m wearing it throughout this post. I bought it in gray and white, but it also comes in several other colors. I purchased a size small.

AG Raw Hem ‘Legging Ankle’ Jeans


These AG jeans are also what I’m wearing in all the photos. I have a few pairs of this ‘Legging Ankle’ style and want to mention that this pair is a half inch longer (28 1/2 in. compared to the usual 28 in. length), which I think is due to the released hem. Anyway, it looks cute with a small cuff and the classic dark wash is minimal and perfect with everything. They run just a slight bit smaller and feel a little less stretchy than my other AG jeans, but I still recommend purchasing your normal size (I’m wearing a size 25 with this belly band!)

In addition to a cape, I also like wearing this as an oversized scarf or wrapped around the shoulders (and I’m thinking it could even double as a nursing cover once baby girl arrives).I L.O.V.E. these booties, guys! They look much more expensive than they are and feel SO comfy. Even though it was hot outside, I wore them all weekend because I just couldn’t wait! Usually I wear my booties with skinny jeans, but I tried them with boyfriend denim and they looked super cute with those, too. I also plan on wearing them with dresses. Don’t hesitate on this pair (they also come in a beautiful black suede).

Marc Fisher ‘Yatina’ boot 

Sale Price: $129.90 **IN STOCK**

This cardigan may be my favorite from the sale—I adore the mushroom brown color for fall and the material is so soft and cozy. Unfortunately it sold out very quickly and I haven’t seen it restocked since.

Dreamers Rib Knit Open Cardigan


Shop the Look

There’s nothing better to me for fall than an oversized sweater and this one is fabulous. It’s one-size-fits-all, and has mixed reviews because of that, but I personally prefer my cardigans loose, so I love it. If you’re on the petite side, wearing it with sleek over-the-knee boots will balance out the oversized fit and keep it from looking sloppy. My boots are not part of the sale but this similar pair is included and a steal at less than $150! If you love my exact Stuart Weitzman boots, though, you’re in luck: they are currently on mega sale at 40% off! They’re sold out everywhere else, but I found the black suede available in all sizes here.

Treasure & Bond Stitch Play Cardigan

Sale Price: $65.90 **STILL IN STOCK**

Shop the Look

This basic from B.P. is great for wearing on its own, layered under jackets, or with an oversized scarf. It has a pretty deep v-neckline so I wouldn’t recommend sizing up on this one since it runs a bit large (I’m wearing an XS).

B.P. V-Neck Pullover 

Sale Price: $24.90 ** LIMITED AVAILABILTY **

Shop the Look

This cardigan is another bestseller from the sale and has mostly sold out, although I have seen a few sizes pop up now and again. I bought it last year in burgundy and loved it, so I thought this neutral cream color would be a nice addition to my closet. Reviews say it runs very large but I disagree: I am wearing a small and feel that it’s just right for the casual look I’m trying to achieve.

Leith Easy Circle Cardigan

Sale Price: $49.90 ** LIMITED AVAILABILITY **

This button down is a return from last year, and like last year, it sold out quickly. I love this for its versatility: besides wearing as a tunic, I’ve tied it at the waist, tucked it in the front, and now that my belly is growing, I like wearing it open over a tank. It appears to still be available in gray, which is another great neutral color for fall.

B.P. Woven Twill Tunic

Sale Price: $31.90 ** AVAILABLE IN GRAY **This cardi is such a great basic for fall and Nordstrom revamped it for this year with a rib stitch pattern (I think this version is higher quality). It sold out quickly, but various sizes and colors have been popping up now and again. Reviews say it’s oversized, but I disagree, especially if you plan to layer with it. I’m wearing a size small.

By now you guys have probably noticed my fall wardrobe theme: oversized cardigans, jeans, and boots! It’s an outfit formula I love either way, but know will work well as my belly gets bigger with this pregnancy.
