2018 Nordstrom Sale Try-On Haul + What I Still Want to Buy!

Hello! Whoever put Prime Day and the Nordstrom Anniversary sale in the same week is the devil! I am spending way too much money but in the long run I know I’ll be happy I stocked up on these basics now. The sale is officially open to the public on Friday and it’s time to get shopping! 

Today I’m sharing everything I tried on the other day at Nordstrom. Somethings I loved and some were so-so, I think it really depends on what you’re in the market for! I’d love to hear your thoughts and see what you purchased. 

Do you use the sale to stock up on staples or save a little on trendy splurges? Or both! #OhYesPlz

See my previous Nordstrom Post ‘What I Already Own & Love’ HERE.  ps. last fall you guys loved these Moto Leggings but they sold out so quickly. They’re back in stock and only $30! Grab a pair now, hurry hurry! 

Leith Wrap Sweater 

Regularly $59, Now $39

wearing size medium (tts)

Verdict: I loved this sweater but I wanted it in white or tan and it wasn’t in stock in the store. 

Topshop Flare Denim

Regularly $75, Now $49

sized up to a 28, topshop pants always run small. 

Verdict: These were super comfortable and I think they fit well, but I have a good pair of flares so I passed. If you’re in the market, you can’t beat this price. 

Leith Fitted Crop Top

Regularly $60, Now $45

wearing size medium 

Verdict: Ehh. It was fine, but pricey for what it is. I passed. 


Calson Utility Pants

Regularly $79, Now $49

wearing a 28

Verdict: I like these pants a lot but wanted to see if I could find them in camo. A great staple to mix things up from the usual denim! If I can’t grab camo, I’m going to get these. 

Caslon Thermal Henley 

Regularly $59, Now $39

only had XL in stock, way too big

Verdict: This top was soft but I still think $39 is a little high, I may have felt differently if they had my correct size. 

Good American Good Legs High Waist Raw Hem Skinny

Regularly $159, Now $105

tried on a 6 (normal size) but I think I needed a 4, they were a little loose

Verdict: I really, really liked these. I probably would have bought if they had my size. They fit well and were comfortable.

Leith Wrap Sweater 

Regularly $59, Now $39

wearing size medium (tts)

Verdict: I loved this sweater but I wanted it in white or tan and it wasn’t in stock in the store. 


BLANKNYC A-Line Suede Skirt

Regularly $98, Now $64

wearing a size 28 (a size up from my jean size)

Verdict: I am wearing it backwards haha! I liked this skirt but just felt I don’t get dressed up enough for the price. If you work in an office, you could definitely dress it up or down. I think I like the camel color better than grey. 

Zella Body Fusion Sports Bra

Regularly $35, Now $25 or 2 for $40

wearing size large (tts)

Verdict: BOUGHT & LOVE. So comfortable, great support and cute. I’ve already worn it twice in three days. 


Zella Live in High Waist Crop Leggings

Regularly $55, Now $35

wearing a medium (tts)

Verdict: Also bought and worn twice! I love these. I think they are more comfortable and just as supportive as my Lulu Lemon. 


Barefoot Dreams Coastal Hooded Cardigan

Regularly $160, Now $115

wearing a size xs/s

Verdict: I could not decide between this one and the one a few photos down. In the end, I liked the shape of the hoodless one better. These are pricey but they are so, so soft. I know I will wear this almost every single day throughout the whole year. 

BP. Raw Edge V Neck Tee

Regularly $17, Now $11

wearing a medium (tts)

Verdict: They didn’t have the color I wanted but I will be ordering, extremely similar to Free People Tees for only $11!


Long Open Front Cardigan

Regularly $75, Now $49

wearing a 6

Verdict: I didn’t buy and I’m seriously regretting it! I really love the shape and it was super cozy. 


Free People Loving Good Vibrations Shorts

Not Part of the Sale

wearing size 27 (tts)

Wayf Lace Up Cami

Regularly $59, Now $38

wearing a size medium

Verdict: LOVE! I usually am not a fan of low cut tops like this but it’s a narrow cut so it’s not as revealing. Glad I bought it for sure, can wear now and later.

Textured Plaid Top

Regularly $45, Now $29

wearing a size medium

Verdict: I liked it but wasn’t my favorite compared to other things I was buying (I was trying not to go overboard so this didn’t make the cut!) Is a good transition piece. It’s super light, layerable and could be worn with shorts now. 


Articles of Society Sarah Skinny Jeans

Regularly $64, Now $41

wearing a 27, but could have done a 26

Verdict: I don’t need skinny jeans right now but I’ve had many pairs of Articles of Society Jeans and they’re incredible, especially for the price! If you need a pair this Fall, do not not not miss this pair.

Calson Dolman Sleeve Sweater

Regularly $59, Now $39

wearing a medium (tts)

Verdict: One of my favorite purchases from the sale. It’s slouchy so it can be worn on the shoulders or off one shoulder. It’s the cozy, cute look that I love for Fall! May pick up one of the other five colors as well. 

Calson Rounded V-Neck Tee

Regularly $35, Now $17

wearing a medium (tts)

Verdict: Such a great staple, I wish I would have gotten more than just white. It comes in 8+ colors. 


Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan

Regularly $114, Now $75

wearing a xs/s

Verdict: MY BFF! I have already slept in this every night. It’s the coziest thing in the world but the shape makes it less pajamas than some other jackets this soft.


Leith Fitted Crop Top

Regularly $60, Now $45

wearing size medium 

Verdict: Ehh. It was fine, but pricey for what it is. I passed. 


Leith Plaid Blazer

Regularly $89, Now $59

wearing size medium

Verdict: I bought this and I’m excited to dress it up and down. I had a floral blazer this spring that I wore all the time. 


Leith Tie Front Skirt

Regularly $65, Now $43

wearing a medium

Verdict: I really wanted this but was getting so many things. I felt like I would wear other things more so I made myself put it back.
