Okay ya’ll…it’s the final weekend of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! That means Monday it’s full price for all these darling Fall (and some Summer) pieces! And ain’t nobody got time for full price! Now is your chance to scoop up wardrobe staples for the upcoming seasons…while it’s still up to 40% off!
The last two Fashion Fridays have been Texas-sized Dressing Room Diaries, showing you the cutest stuff I loved most! The shots aren’t good, the lighting is bad, my hair is usually past it’s expiration,…but it’s real life, real girl, real clothes…and hopefully helpful for you to see them this way, instead of perfectly styled on a model.
Today I thought I’d share what I’ll likely keep, and what I would keep if only I had a money tree. Or a sugar daddy. Either would work just fine.
These scoop neck tees are the best I’ve found in awhile…flattering neckline and arms, loose enough to be comfy, but not so wide you look schleppy. I already had a couple of striped ones, so at $15 I added solid white and black to my collection.
I love the slightly higher waist of these jeans (it gives the illusion of longer legs!), the minimal distressing, no weird whiskering in the crotch and hip areas (who wants to call attention to their crotch?!), and dark rinse.
And the boots. #huminahumina The leather is soft, the footbed comfy, and the color perfection. I think they are a great Look-for-Less of these much pricier boots, too!
Fit note: I wear an XS in the tee, and 3 in the jeans. The boots are true-to-size, with plenty of room for my ‘athletic’ calves, but wide-calf is also available.
Here’s the same tee in black, with a hit of color with the necklace (also on sale!). This is the other pair of jeans coming to live with me…dark rinse, slightly higher in the back (no gap or muffin top!), and just enough stretch to keep the jiggly bits tucked in. There’s also no distressing or whiskering so you could easily use these tips to wear them for dressier occasions.
So the only place I’m still undecided is the booties…I’m having a hard time narrowing down my favorites. These are by far the comfiest, with a nice cushy insole, and just enough heel height.
Fit note: I wear my usual size 26 in these jeans. I could probably size down one, but I prefer eating room for tacos. And the boots are true-to-size.
This pullover v-neck sweater is lightweight and a little stretchy…lots of fun colors to choose from, too. I’m wearing with the same distressed jeans as above, and another bootie contender…fringe ankle boots.
Fit note: I sized up one in the sweater for a more relaxed fit, and to allow room to layer over a shirt when the weather cools down. The boots are true-to-size with thin ankle socks.
This wrap sold out quickly, and now I understand why. It’s seriously become like my security blanket!! I’m not even kidding…I change in to it with my pjs the second I get home, and my whole body relaxes. I know when the weather cools I’ll be wearing it out of the house, as well. (It’s fully stocked in the non-sale colors, fyi.)
Fit note: I didn’t care for the fit and length of the striped version. The small fits great in the solid, and would work for anyone usually an XS-Medium.
Okay, I cheated a bit…this dress isn’t actually part of the Anniversary Sale, per say, but I couldn’t resist a new color in my favorite dress. (See it styled multiple ways here, here, here, here, and here. Do you see why I added another color to my collection…it’s clearly my go-to!)
And I was surprised by how much I love these low-ankle booties…love that they show a bit of skin when worn with jeans, and are a nice streamlined silhouette when wearing with skirts and dresses.
Fit note: I wear an XS in the dress…a Small does give a bit more length, but the armholes too long and the body too wide. You want it to drape, not hang like a sack. The booties are true-to-size.
Ugh, I can’t believe I’m showing you these pics…but I love these pants too much not to share. I’m embarrassed to say they are my only workout pants…I’m hoping since they are so cute and comfy, I’ll want to wear them. And work out in them. That’s the hope anyway. But they really are great, just check out the reviews!
Fit note: I’m wearing an XS. The wide waistband keeps them in place without rolling down, and there’s even a handy pocket. For what, I’m not sure. What do people tuck in the waistband of their pants when working out?
Okay, now a few things that I would keep if I didn’t have kids to feed and a mortgage payment to think about.
As fun as it’s been scouring the sale for the best goodies, it’s also exhausting figuring out what I want to keep! #victim #sarcasm And I’m sick to death of seeing my mug in these mirror selfies…it’s time to move on! (Note to self: clean mirror, wash hair) I hope you’ve enjoyed the series, and you found it helpful in making your own selections.
So tell me…which booties are your favorites…and what are your best scores from the sale?! Happy weekend…and final shopping…lovebugs!
