What I Purchased From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (the must haves!)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 PicksIt’s finally almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale public access! They’ll be restocking a good bit of the best pieces late tonight, so get them fast because they will definitely sell out again. When I first flipped through the catalog I’ll admit, I wasn’t blown away by the selection. However, they left so much out of the catalog and put it all online once the sale went live. Now my problem is finding too many good things I want!

Since the sale officially goes live at 3 AM ET tonight, I’m posting early to give y’all a head start on scooping out the goods. I would add any items you like to your wish list and then you can quickly and easily checkout once the sale starts!

my 10 best Nordstrom Anniversary sale buys:

+ cashmere vest: a vest is such a great, versatile wardrobe staple. It was hard to choose a color in this one! If you’re going to be pregnant this fall a vest is such an easy way to style a growing bump. size: one size

+ moto jacket: majorly obsessed with this beauty! The quality is so good and I love the gold hardware. size: small

+ hooded cardigan : this is so insanely soft! I ordered the cocoa color and can’t wait to get cozy in it. It’s perfect for around the house or paired with jeans and boots for running errands. size: xs/s

+ raw hem ankle jeans: the perfect pair of denim for fall. AG jeans are super flattering and the wash on these is just right.

+ slide loafer: I love a good slide loafer and this tan color is an easy go-to. I sized up a 1/2 size per the reviews

+ rib stitch cardigan: always a good piece to get during this sale and for cold weather layering. size: xs

+ faux leather leggings: I’ve worn these two death the past two seasons and they’re still going strong. Super flattering and really suck you in in all the right places. size: small (typically a 26/2 in jeans)

+ ryder cardigan: one of my favorite cardigans I got last season with such pretty new color options this year! size: xs

+ high waist leggings: hands down my go-t0 workout leggings. Super comfortable, not see through and also look great paired with sweater and boots for cold weather. I wore them my entire pregnancy and they were my jam. size: xs in them normally and got a small while pregnant.

+ raw edge side slit tee: so much buzz around this tee and for good reason! It’s a great, relaxed fit, available in tons of colors and only $15. size: small

BlankNYC moto jacket - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Last year I fell in love with this suede jacket and it was one of my favorite Nsale purchase. This year, I loved the moto jacket by the same brand. The quality is awesome for the $65 price. I have it in a size small and can’t wait to rock it this fall/winter.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fall PicksThis plaid shirt is such a great deal for fall at only $32! It runs big, so size down. I’m wearing an xs and it still fits over my 9 month bump. I love the longer length as well – perfect for leggings and boots.
My favorite purchases from the sale are this amazing waterfall cashmere vest (one size)and the softest long sleeve top (size small). Trust me, if you’re going for key fall pieces, these are two items I can’t recommend enough. I also always use this sale as the time to buy cashmere, so I’ve linked my favorite sale options as well.

    LOVE that Cashmere vest!! Vests and cardigans got me through my entire pregnancy last fall/winter. Also, still dying to try the Zella leggings but I feel like I’m cheating on Lulu! Might snag them during the sale though

    I wasn’t thrilled over the catalog selection either. I didn’t really see anything in there that I wanted, but then when the sale went live last week I was like holla!!!! Ohhh I love those silver loafers!!! I have been putting the faux leather leggings in my basket and taking them back out over and over again. I love them so much on other people, but I am not sure if I can pull them off. I am thinking about just getting the Zella ones instead. I am trying to drop the last of my pregnancy weight so maybe I will wait til next year for the fancier leggings when i feel more comfortable. So many good things!!!
