Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What I Bought and Size Guide
I finally have most of my stuff from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’m actually still waiting for a couple things because they were back-ordered. I’m waiting for my black faux-leather moto jacket ($64.90) and brown suede moto jacket. But it doesn’t matter because they were a steal and I don’t need to wear them now. I use this sale to take advantage of the Fall pieces. For now, I will continue to wear my summer clothes. Not worth sweating in the heat so I decided to take the classic mirror selfie.
High Waisted Ankle Jeans ($45.90)
I’m wearing size 27 and it fits perfectly. I normally wear size 2 or 27 so these jeans fit true to size. I typically purchase high-waisted jeans and these jeans are definitely high-waisted and fit comfortably. The length is just right. Not too long and not too short. I am 5’4″ for reference. I was actually looking for more cropped-style jeans. However, this worked out because I usually find skinny jeans too long and the petites are too short. So this length happens to be what I’ve been looking for, for all my jeans. I am also wearing these jeans in all of these photos so you can see how they can be styled.
Asymmetrical Ruffled Tee ($22.90), High Waisted Ankle Jeans ($45.90)
I love the asymmetrical style and the ruffle details. It makes this top unique, but still very versatile to wear. I normally wear a size small in tops and I purchased a size small. I definitely think an XS would fit better, but the small gives it room to do a front-tuck if you love to wear your tops that way. Since it is cotton, I assume it would shrink a little in the wash.
Asymmetrical Ruffled Tee ($22.90), iPhone 7 Case ($8.99)
Long Sleeve Striped Tee ($17.90), High Waisted Ankle Jeans ($45.90)
If you’re wondering if the long sleeve tees are the same just in different colors, you are correct. Some of my existing striped tees are worn out. I just love wearing stripes! So I decided it is time to replenish them. I purchased these tees in size small and they’re a perfect fit. The description says they run small and to size up, but I normally wear a size small and this fits well with a little room. I love the length too. It hits right at the hips. So I got it in black & white stripes and navy & white stripes.
High Waist Crop Wide Leg Pants ($45.90)
I am a sucker for wide-leg pants! These pants are super wide-leg that if I had my feet together, it would have looked like a midi skirt. Hence, why I’m posing awkwardly. I want to show that I’m wearing pants and not a skirt haha! I purchased an XS and to be honest, I’m exchanging for a Small one. Usually, I have to size down in high-waisted pants, but this time it was snug. So it is a keeper, just need to size up.
Suede Moto Jacket ($125.90)
I’ve been wanting a suede moto jacket for a couple years now. The first time they came out, I was hesitant, and then last year I wanted to make the purchase and they immediately sold out. So this time around, I finally got it! I’m wearing the one in red. It’s not as vibrant. It is more of a burnt red, which I think is more complimentary. I also got it in brown because that is the original one I wanted. The brown is currently back-ordered so it won’t arrive until mid-August. I ordered a size S and it fits perfectly. There’s still room to wear a light sweater, but it still has a nice fitted style. I usually don’t like roomy moto jackets because they don’t look flattering anymore. In this case, it is roomy and flattering.
Suede Moto Jacket ($125.90), High Waisted Ankle Jeans ($45.90), Asymmetrical Ruffled Tee ($22.90)
Buffalo Plaid Scarf ($15.90), Long Sleeve Striped Tee ($17.90), High Waisted Ankle Jeans ($45.90)
I couldn’t resist purchasing a scarf. After all, wearing scarves is what makes Fall exciting. I love buffalo plaid so a buffalo plaid scarf was a need haha! In case it is sold out, the Houndstooth Square Scarf ($18.90), Plaid Blanket Wrap ($29.90), and Plaid Blanket Scarf ($29.90) are good options too! I have a decent amount of blanket scarves, so I didn’t need a new one.
Buffalo Plaid Scarf ($15.90), Long Sleeve Striped Tee ($17.90), iPhone 7 Case ($8.99)
Plaid Shirt ($31.90), iPhone 7 Case ($8.99)
I am obsessed with this plaid shirt. But I didn’t think I would love it this much until I got it. I love its tunic length, it feels soooo soft, and it’s lightweight. I love lightweight plaid shirts because I can easily layer with them. The tunic length is perfect because I love doing the front tuck with my plaid shirts. I purchased an XS and the size is perfect with room to give. It has that boyfriend-style fit. I’m highly considering replacing the rest of my plaid shirts if the BP brand comes out with more plaid colors.

Wedged Booties (from last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale), but here is this year’s wedged Booties
I know I purchased these booties last year, but just wanted to share and show you guys how making a purchase from this sale is so worth it because you’ll have items that will be wearable year after year. So if you loved how my booties looked in this outfit, I figured why not share this year’s wedged booties.
Stripe High Waist Workout Leggings ($33.90), Holy Chic Tee (old), similar here
I love to purchase workout clothes during the sale and I try to get at least one workout item. I was planning to get more, but they all got picked over. And now they’re all back in stock (go figure). I am wearing a size small and it fits comfortably. I really love that I can wear them for a long run or for yoga. Last year, I purchased 2 of these Zella leggings and loved them!
If you noticed, I didn’t get much stuff. Every year I purchase things from this sale that I think are classic and will keep for a while. Which makes my life easier because that means every year I don’t need to purchase as much. I’m all about purchasing high-quality, basic and classic pieces. They always stay in style, they keep for a while, and are versatile.
As mentioned above, not all my pieces came in the mail.
So to showcase everything I purchased, I created a round-up below. If my faux-leather moto jacket and brown suede moto jacket come in before the sale is over, I’ll update this post to include a snap of them. If not, the next time you’ll see them will most likely be during my Fall outfits. So if you want to see more of my picks from the sale, you can check them out here. Remember that all these items will be back to regular price on August
