#NSale Product Reviews

Nordstrom

Hi guys!  Happy Friday!  Since the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is officially open to the public, I wanted to take a minute and share some of my favorite purchases from the sale with all of you, along with some honest reviews of what I think about the products I purchased.

You can also shop my GUIDE TO THE NORDSTROM SALE here.

NSale OutfitsNSale 1

STRAPPY TOP:  My favorite purchase of the sale.  It’s under $20 and comes in a bunch of other colors.  I also bought the black.  Would definitely recommend this one.  Oh, and the back has the same cute strappy detailing as the front!

BOYFRIEND JEANS: LOVE these!  I am a total jean snob and usually only buy certain brands, but I loved the cut off bottoms of these (and the price! only $65!), so I took a chance and tried them. And I am SO glad I did.  Really love these.

NSale 3

SHIRT DRESS: I am always a sucker for a good shirts dress.  And anything olive green (obviously).  So this one was a no brainer for me.  It’s a great price point and I think it is SO cute.  My only hang up is that the fabric wrinkles pretty easily.  Although it also comes in a really cute stripe print, which would probably mask the wrinkles a little better (if you’re concerned about that).

LACE UP HEELS: These aren’t technically a part of the sale, but they are still on major sale at Nordstrom right now and are pretty much the comfiest heels I own.  LOVE these and definitely recommend them! (more sizes here)

NSale 2

TWIST FRONT TOP: This is a top I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards, but I loved it when I tried it on, and for less than $25, I had to give it a try.  Comes in a couple other colors and is a great piece to add to any wardrobe.

PAIGE DENIM: I love Paige denim, and these beauties are under $100!  I love the length and find that the Verdugo style holds it shape really well and doesn’t stretch out over time.  One of my favorite denim styles.

NSale 4

VEST: my vest is older, but everyone needs the vest that is in the sale in their closet ASAP.  The price point is really affordable and this will be a workhorse piece in your closet all year round!

DRESS: This dress isn’t part of the sale, but it is a great basic, comes in a ton of colors and is less than $50.  I have it in 3 colors and wear them all the time.  Definitely recommend this item!

OPEN-TOE BOOTIES: My only shoe purchase of the sale, and I am in love!  They are super comfy and I love the cute little ankle cut out detail (see pic below for more detail). They are also super flattering and less than $100.

NSale 5

SADDLE BAG: Absolutely LOVE this bag!  It sold out really quickly the first go-around, so if you are interested, I would make sure and snatch up quickly if you want it.  I love all of the colors, but ultimately went with the black.

BOOTIES: Same as above

DENIM: Same as above

Don’t forget, you can shop my entire Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide here.

Happy Friday, sweet friends.  And happy shopping!

Tassel Town

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got a serious thing for tassels this summer.  I mean really, could they be more FUN? Plus, how cute is this dress? The quality is fantastic (for under $20!!), and the back just might be even cuter than the front.

That Sunshine In My Pocket

Yellow is my absolute favorite color and has been ever since I moved past my pink and purple obsession in kindergarten.  Ha! So when I saw this cute dress that was yellow, off-the-shoulder, and only $33, I knew it must have been made for me.  But don’t worry, if you’re not a yellow fan (which I know everyone is not) it also comes in black.  But no matter the color, it is seriously so cute and SO comfy. Pretty much the perfect go-to dress to throw on day or night.

Dress: ASOS, also here in black | Necklace: cabi, French Kande | Bracelets: Alex and Ani | Sunnies: Prada | Bag: Clare V. | Heels: Steve Madden (on sale for less than $55!)

Hope you guys are having a great week!  Thank you SO much for stopping by.

Gingham

You guys! I love this dress SO much.  I was totally on the fence about it before I tried it on, but now that it’s arrived, I seriously can’t seem to stop thinking of different ways to style it.  I love that you can dress it up or dress it down, and that it lends itself well back to a pop of color.  The possibilities really are endless.  And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that I love adding items to my wardrobe that present multiple outfit options.  That is the best, and most cost efficient way to build your wardrobe!

Cropped

No matter how old you are, I believe there are ways to participate in the trends of the season (with a little tweaking here and there) to make them age appropriate. Take the cropped trend for example. I have been wanting to give this style a try for quite a while, but I’m obviously not going to be running around town showing off my stomach.  So I was pleasantly surprised to find this top that is just long to keep me covered, but just short enough to fall into the cropped category.  It also doesn’t hurt that it’s off-the-shoulder (which is my absolute favorite trend this season)!

I’d love to know, do you guys like to try out modified versions of different trends?

P.S. You’ll have to excuse my wild hair in this post-it was super windy when I took these photos!

Cha Cha Cha

I initially saw this dress on one of my very favorite fashion bloggers and fell in LOVE.  But when I saw the price, I was definitely hesitant about taking the plunge.  So when I stumbled on an amazing lookalike for less than $25, I didn’t even hesitate.  Not only is this dress totally on trend and SO fun with the tassels, but the quality is fantastic.  So if you’ve been eyeing the designer version of this dress, but have been apprehensive about the steep price tag (like me!), then this version of the dress is definitely for you!

Stripes

I have a hard time saying no to anything striped.  Particularly striped dresses this time of year.  So when I spotted this cute little number at Nordstrom, I knew it would not only be the perfect thing to wear on the 4th, but that it would also be a comfy basic to keep on rotation in my closet this summer.  And at only $38, who could resist?

Repeat

I originally purchased this Free People dress last summer in pink and wore it for my birthday celebration in Sonoma.  And I loved it so much and got so much wear out of it, that when they brought it back this season, I bought it in this pretty minty/sage color.  And this summer, it is once again one of my favorite things in my closet. It’s also on sale right now, and comes in several other colors.  So if you have been thinking about getting this dress, I would highly recommend it! You’ll get so much wear out of it, I promise it will be worth every penny! PLUS it has pockets this year too!

Although be warned.  It seems to be running a little shorter this year than last year, so I would recommend sizing up for length.
