Fitting Room Diaries: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I finally made it to Nordstrom last week to check out the sale. I was a little underwhelmed to be honest! I am not sure if our store just doesn’t get as much, or if a lot of it was sold out. But, the options were very slim, and it was hard to tell which racks were on sale and which weren’t. I managed to work my way through the ladies departments and here were my favorite pieces.

Sweaters are going to be a big deal this season; oversized and chunky, with details to make them interesting. This BP varsity sweater was cute, and the back has criss cross straps. It was under $40, which makes it a no brainer purchase. I would wear this with leggings and tennis shoes on days when you just want to be comfortable but not wearing workout clothes.


We are still seeing a ton of open shoulders in tops and sweaters for Fall. This Rag & Bone fit like a glove. I love the higher neck and the angle of the cutouts. It was probably my favorite piece I tried on. I paired it with the Paige Denim Hoxton Ankle in black which is a super comfy, higher rise jean. They come in black and darker blue and they are a must if you need denim. I would suggest sizing down as they ran a little big.

I am obsessed with this shade of yellow! It is a really beautiful shade that transitions nicely into fall. This would be a great date night top, which I think are hard to find!

 This top by Leith is another great bargain find at under $40, and it comes in 3 colors. It runs big, so again make sure to size down; I am wearing XS

Here is another great date night option! This top by Wayf is a pretty shade of pink, and is also a good buy and wear now top.

Lastly, I always think it is hard to find those middle of the road type of tops. Something you could wear to your kids school or a more conservative meeting. This Madewell top is a cute take on a classic pinstripe and is under $55.

 Velvet is making a huge comeback this season! I have seen everything from blazers to pants, and especially dresses. This dress was a really pretty silhouette, I am just not sure the color was right with my blonde hair. But any of you brunettes or red heads this would be amazing!

I also came across some other items online that I really liked! I am sharing the ones above and some others below…

Happy Shopping! And don’t forget, prices go up on August 7th!
