I’ve done a post on what I ordered from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but today I wanted to style them for you and let y’all know what’s going back and what you can still grab on sale before they go up to full price August 8th!
My favorite purchase from the sale would definitely be these boots, which is funny because when I shopped online and in store the first time I looked right past them. I went to the store a second time with Tim and wanted to try on some over the knee boots, because they look so cute on everyone. I also decided to try on this pair because the color caught my eye. They’re a great mix between a taupe and gray so you can wear them with blacks or browns (but who says you can’t mix them anyway… not me!).
I tried the above pair on first and fell in love with how comfortable they were, but I still wanted to give the over the knee boots a try. I don’t know why but I always feel like I look like a pirate when I wear them, so they were a no-go and these came home with me. I always get a half size up in boots to wear thicker socks and to just make it easier to slip them off and on..although I still have Tim pull them off for me when he’s around 😉
I ordered last years version of this tunic because I wanted more length in the front (both are the same price on sale). This scarf also wasn’t apart of the NSale, but it’s been sitting in my cart for months so I decided to send it my way. I like the length of it because you can wear it around your neck without having to do anything fancy with it (see picture below).
Tim gifted me this watch when we celebrated our one year dating anniversary, and I wear it just as much now as I did two years ago. I love how simple the face is, as well as how flat and light weight it is against my wrist. This one in the sale is very similar, but has a touch of rose gold! Also, this leopard scarf was sent to me in error so I styled it here and sent it back to Nordstrom because I already have one just like it!
Now for these flats and this cardigan.. I think they’re the two purchases I’m returning. First, the shoes.. I’ve been loving the lace up flat trend, however the pointed toe just isn’t for me. I feel like my feet look huge with them on, just me?? I will say they looked cuter after pairing them with full looks verse when I first tried them on in workout clothes. They aren’t as high maintenance to get in and out of as I expected.
As for the sweater, I thought this whole time I was going to exchange it for an XS, but when I checked again it turns out this is an xs! It definitely runs large, and I’m still torn on keeping it because I like the color but I’m not sure it’s doing it for me other than that.
Of course… I do like the way the shoes look here #indecisive. This tunic was in the sale last year and I wanted to get one because it’s not chiffon like most of the tunics I own. It definitely runs large, so if you’re between sizes order down. I’ll probably exchange it for an XS and it will still be a little oversized like I like them to be.
I purchased a regular black pair of leggings because you can never have enough, along with this pair of fun tights that I love way more than I expected to. Usually I don’t care for patterned tights once I try them on, but these are somehow just as flattering as the black pair and I love the colors! You can size down in the zella leggings if you want a little more “suck it in” action from them.
