Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Haul

Hello, fellow shopaholics! Did you shop the biggest sale of the year? I’m sure many of you are already over the Nordstrom sale, and I feel so lame sharing this Nordstrom post so late!  On the bright side, the sale doesn’t end until 8/5 so you can still shop! I bought majority of these items during early access and a few pieces here and there when the sale went public. For your reference I included sizes and links if the item is still in stock.

BP. Lace Camisole //

AG Ripped Ankle Skinny Jeans

 BP. Lace Trim Satin Camisole, Green Botanical, X-Small

This is a regular at the sales and I’m surprised it sold out so quickly! I bought the ivory color last year and decided on the green this time around. I wish I got the black as well, but I guess that will have to wait until next year! This has not been restocked. 

AG The Legging Ripped Ankle Skinny Jeans, 4 Years Lucid Quartz, Size 27

I’ve wanted a pair of artfully ripped jeans for the longest time, but the rips were never in the right spot. This one finally looks right! I’ve seen Nordstrom put out some variation of these skinny jeans during the anniversary sale for several years now so you can expect these to be a staple. These jeans have lots of stretch in them so either stick to your normal size or size down depending on how fitted you want them.

Rails Plaid Shirt

Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt, Ivory Bluebell Pink, Small

Just like the AG jeans, these plaid shirts by Rails always show up during the sale! I took the plunge and purchased one after hearing rave reviews year after year.

Barefoot Dreams® Cozychic Lite® Coastal Hooded Cardigan

Barefoot Dreams® Cozychic Lite® Coastal Hooded Cardigan, Silver/Pearl Heather, X-Small/Small

Anyone who knows me knows I love soft, cozy, snuggly, comfy things. I got myself a Barefoot cardigan last year, and I got another one this year! They are so soft you’ll just want to hug yourself all day. I love them so much!

Halogen® Ruffle Neck Sweater //

Halogen® Violet Genuine Calf Hair Mule

Halogen® Ruffle Neck Sweater (Regular & Petite), Grey Light Heather, X-Small

This sweater is so cute! I love the ruffled neck and it's easy to dress it up or down. Don't worry, it’s not scratchy! 

Halogen® Violet Genuine Calf Hair Mule, Leopard, Size 7

In efforts to revamp my style I picked these up and found them very flattering! They look so cute with either leggings or skinny jeans and make your legs look nice and long. They fit true to size.

Rebecca Minkoff Superwoman Delaney Tee

Rebecca Minkoff Superwoman Delaney Tee, X-Small

Ok, who wouldn’t love a t-shirt that says super woman?! It’s hard to find a decent t-shirt that won’t stretch out or lose it’s shape after a few washes. This one feels surprisingly soft and the quality is definitely there so I’m happy with it!

Frame Le Slender Straight Leg Jeans //

State Sisteen Half d'Orsay Pump

Frame Le Slender Straight Leg Jeans, Thistle, Size 27

I love how this denim feels! It’s soft and comfy, but has enough structure to hold everything in. I'm also a fan of the higher rise- low rise pants are out! Most of the reviews said to size up so I ordered the 27 and 28, but found the 28 too large (pictured here). I think they’re true to size. 

State Sisteen Half d'Orsay Pump, Navy, Size 7.5

This is the first pair of heels I bought in something like 10 years! I’ve gotten too comfortable with my sneakers and flats so I thought it was time to break the rut. I heard a useful tip that one should purchase heels up to 2 sizes bigger to accommodate for swelling, but I think half a size is good enough for me. These feel comfortable and the block heel is super helpful while I get used to wearing heels again.

The North Face Westborough Insulated Jacket

The North Face Westborough Insulated Jacket, Urban Navy, Small

I’m always borrowing jackets either from my mom’s closet or my husband’s. This time around I don’t have to! This North Face jacket is so warm and the style/fit is more fashionable. It’s water repellent, lightweight, and wind resistant!

Dreamers by Debut Exposed Seam Sweater

Dreamers by Debut Exposed Seam Sweater, Heather Mustard, Small

A light, oversized sweater that is perfect for cool nights or the transition into fall! I. cannot. wait. for autumn. says every girl…

Adidas Original Trefoil Tank

Adidas Original Trefoil Tank, XS

Although this tank is sold out online, I've seen plenty of them in store so you might want to check out the racks if you really like this. I took this photo early on when I was still getting items from the sale, but I ended up returning it because the fit around the neck was uncomfortable. For some reason they made the neckline really close fitting and it almost feels too constricting. I can imagine that it would be really uncomfortable when you're sweating and working out.

UGG® Cassandra Check Pajamas

UGG® Cassandra Check Pajamas, Seashell Pink/White Check, Small

I’ve been slowly weeding out my old, ratty pajamas and replacing them with cute ones like this set! It’s a thin, breathable cotton set that feels so comfortable and is perfect if you normally feel too warm in bed.

Spanx, Wacoal, Chantelle

The anniversary sale has become the only time of the year I buy bras. It’s kind of ridiculous how expensive these things are so I cannot pass up a chance on getting good quality bras at a discount!

Chantelle Intimates Soft Stretch Seamless Hipster Panties

One size fits all? This one is a best seller so I had to try! I can see why it gets such good reviews. You don't get any panty lines, it doesn't ride up, and hugs you like a glove! I only bought two pairs, but you bet next year I'm going to be stocking up on these!

SPANX® Pillow Cup Signature Push-Up Plunge Underwire Bra

Fits true to size. 

SPANX® Bra-llelujah!® Racerback Underwire Bra

Nordstrom fit recommendations say to go down a band size and up a cup size, but that didn’t work out for me. I had to go up a band size and down a cup size. This is actually my most favorite bra of all time. I’ve repurchased this same bra 3 times already and I hope they never discontinue it. You don’t have to worry about straps falling or wires digging into your side. It’s so comfortable! 

Wacoal How Perfect No-Wire Contour Bra

This is a great seamless bra for wearing under t-shirts! No pointy cups or frilly designs so your top will look nice and smooth!

Treasure & Bond Throw

TREASURE & BOND Jersey Rope Throw, Grey

I normally wouldn’t buy house things during the sale, but because we’re updating our home I wanted to add some new accessories to match. I love the look of knitted throws; especially the chunky knit wool ones, but was afraid of the shedding so I was beyond excited for this! Because I didn’t read carefully when I ordered, I was surprised when I wrapped myself in it and found my legs exposed.  It’s only 30x75 inches! Although it’s not as wide as I want it, the material is heavy enough that it stretches and drapes to cover the width of my body plus some wiggle room. Good enough fit, and it’s so soft and cozy! I cannot wait to cuddle in this!

Ted Baker Duvet Set

TED BAKER LONDON Entangled Enchantment Duvet Cover & Sham Set

This is my first time buying a pretty duvet set and the price seemed reasonable so I was pleasantly surprised at the quality! Something new to spruce up our bedroom!

Beauty

beautyblender

Beautyblender® blend.cleanse.carry Set

I always think you can never have too many beauty blenders, but really I was won over by this set because of the carrying case. I normally just throw my beauty blender into my makeup bag, but now I have something I can actually put it in so it doesn’t touch other surfaces!  

I have 2 more items I'm still waiting on, but I'll add those later if they work out. What did you think of the sale? I hope your shopping trip(s) was amazing! I always look forward to this sale even though it marks the end of summer. Time flies!
