Hits & Misses from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

My favorite sale of the year is here, and I am sharing all of my hits and misses! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is amazing! With so many options, it is easy to get overwhelmed and make an impulse buy just because something is on sale and a good price! I use this sale as a good time to stock up on some great basics for fall, your favorite beauty items, and staples!

Before I share my favorites, I have to say, that I truly don’t believe that you should purchase something just because it is on sale! Ask yourself these three questions before you decide what to purchase and/or keep!

  1. Is this the image I want to portray?
  2. Does it look good on me?
  3. Do I love it?

Dates to shop:

I am starting with a few pieces from past years that I LOVE and have stood the test of time!

This jacket was one of my favorite purchases last year! It has great stretch and elevates your look! I turned to it again, and again last year!

Fit Tip: Size up if in between in the jacket. Wearing the small. Everything else is true to size. Wearing a small in the bra and leggings.

This cute top is such a great option for work! And while my exact pants are no longer available, I linked a couple similar ones that are on sale. This top is available in 5 colors.

I really liked this white tee to wear under cardigans and jackets! It’s pretty thin in person, so I wouldn’t recommend it by itself. The cardigan was a miss for me. I know cropped looks are all the trend, but it just isn’t me!
