What I Bought At The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Pt. 1

I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I always travel to Atlanta to meet up with my sister, niece, and a good friend. We always have a blast, laugh way too much, and fill my vehicle to the brim with clothing. Come along with me today as I show you what I bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Cotton Crop T-Shirt (Large) | Open Front Longline Cardigan (Medium) | High Waist Flared Wide Leg Jeans (Size 29) | Raniah Waterproof Bootie (TTS)

I like to start off with one of my favorite outfits. Each outfit is special in its own way, but this is one that I can see myself wearing a lot!!! Don’t be fooled by the description of the t-shirt; I didn’t think it was cropped at all.

High Waist Flared Wide Leg Jeans (Size 29) | Raniah Waterproof Bootie (TTS)

The Mother jeans fit great, and I loved the wide-leg style. I paired them with a pair of Blondo waterproof booties with a chunky heel.

Stripe Shaker Zip Cardigan (Small) | Paige High Waist Flare Jeans (Size 28) | Raniah Waterproof Bootie (TTS)

You might not believe it, but this zip cardigan was the hit of the day! Several of us bought this, and I even had a stranger ask to try it on once she saw it hanging in my dressing room. I kept on the waterproof booties and changed into a pair of flare jeans by Paige. I sized down one size in the jeans and the cardigan.

Cable Crop Cardigan (Medium) | Cable Sweater Skirt (Medium) | Cristen Knee High Boot (TTS)

I found a couple of gorgeous fall dresses. This sweater set (sold separately) is a great neutral. The cropped cardigan will look great with jeans, and I could wear the skirt with the white crop tee and a denim jacket.

Faux Leather Shirtdress (Medium) | Cristen Knee High Boot (TTS)

I didn’t think I would love this Faux Leather Shirtdress, but I was sooo wrong. I love the color, and it fits me like it was made for me. It looked like it was pulling in the breast area, so I tried on a larger size. That large one looked the same but was too loose in the body, so I ended up buying this one.

I paired the faux leather dress and cable knit sweater set with these gorgeous dark caramel knee high boots. The boots have a tortoiseshell look, and are also available in suede.

Short Sleeve Wool & Cashmere Sweater (Large) | Ankle Straight Leg Jeans (Size 29) | Small Allington Tote | Kitten Heel Pointed Toe Slingback Pump (Size 9) | 55mm Gradient Square Sunglasses

This is the last outfit for the day, but be sure to tune in tomorrow for pt. 2. Since I started with one of my favorite outfits, I thought I would end with one, too. I have been wanting to try jeans by Rag and Bone, so I tried the Ankle Straight Leg Jeans. I think they run a tad big and I needed to size down to a 28, but the store didn’t have that size in stock.

I wanted to pair the jeans with a small heel, so I added these plaid Kitten Heel Pointed Toe Slingback Pumps from Sam Edelman. They are super cute in person, and I had several people ask about them.

Short Sleeve Wool & Cashmere Sweater (Large) | High Waist Flared Wide Leg Jeans (Size 29) | Small Allington Tote | Kitten Heel Pointed Toe Slingback Pump (Size 9) | 55mm Gradient Square Sunglasses

Last year, I bought the Short-Sleeve Wool and cashmere sweater in black and burgundy. I have worn both of those several times, so I grabbed the charcoal this year. I thought it looked great with the Allington Tote and Celine Square Sunglasses. Even though I loved the sunglasses, I didn’t buy them. I am too careless with my sunglasses and tend to misplace them. Since they are not cheap, I decided not to take the risk.

I can’t wait to hear which outfit you liked the best.

  14. nice looks, thanks~ I love the simplicity of the final outfit and am going to copy it – so chic. I am glad you didn’t up with the sunglasses: you have a nice=shaped face, and the glasses were too big for your features imho.

  15. All the outfits look great on you but I absolutely love the faux leather dress and those tall boots!

  16. Maria Grant says:

    The Paige jeans look awesome on you! I love that cardigan too but looks like it’s already unavailable. The leather dress is beautiful!!

    1. I figured it would sell out fast since everyone was wanting it.

  17. LOVED that last outfit!! I just can’t get into the flair jeans. Am I the only one?!
    But everything looks good on you!

    1. I love flare jeans, and they are flattering for most body types. But, we all have different things we like.

  19. You look so good in all the clothes it makes me want to buy them all.

  21. Linda Dearman says:

    Love all the pieces especially tje faux leather brown dress. Thanks.

  22. I love your outfits, Tania, but I REALLY love that you picked one of my “life verses” today! As an introvert, I appreciate Paul writing about living a quiet life, minding your own business, and working so that you won’t be a burden to others. We aren’t always able to do those things, but it’s a blessing when we can.

  23. I can’t imagine trying on wool and leather as hot as it is this week, in the deep south. Glad you had a great time with friends and family.

  24. Diane Schexnyder says:

    Love the sweaters!

  25. The leather dress looks very nice on you. I find that sometimes when my 34F chest pulls a little in a dress, trying a different bra fixes the problem. It’s funny how having the girls arranged a little differently in a different brand or style of bra changes the fit of my clothing. Maybe one of your other bras will stop your new dress from pulling at the chest. Good luck!

  26. Michele in SC says:

    Gurl – LOVE the charcoal sweater, jeans and kitten heel outfit! Tres chic!

  27. Zip cardigan already sold out.

    1. Hopefully they’ll restock, and there will be returns also.

  28. Tanya – Where’s your color?

    1. Fall styles aren’t as colorful, but I have a red coat in Pt. 2 that I love.

  29. Elizabeth says:

    Tania you always look amazing in every and all outfits!

  30. Ohhh, I love all the outfits you picked!! I’ve looked at many recommendations from influencers and so far, yours are the ones I like the best 🙂

  31. I love all these outfits on you, especially the stripe shaker zip sweater and Paige jeans!!

  32. Hi, please show some more cropped 7 for all Mankind jeans. Those I can buy in Germany as well. Most of the others you show are not available in Europe. Buying from the US is impossible due to taxes and customs charge. That will double the price. Thank you. Petra

  33. Wow!!!!!!!!!! Tonya!!!!!!! You look like a million bucks in every one of these outfits!!!!!! That faux dress is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Also, thank you for the AMAZON GIFT CARD of $50 in this past Sunday’s win on your site!!!! It really does happen and you are so generous to give one away weekly!!!!!!!!!
    I can’t wait to see tomorrow’s outfits!

    1. Elaine, you’ll be using that next week when Prime Days start.

  34. You look GREAT!!! in all those choices!!

  35. They’re all so good on you, but I do love the first one. You look long and lean. And the striped zip cardigan is super cute too!

  37. Ginger Hiller says:

    I like what you bought yesterday. I’m wondering if the ladies that were with you found some goodies to take home.

    1. Yes, they loaded up a lot.

  38. What fun you had with your niece! Love your picks! I guess the wide leg flare is staying a thing! Wish I had long legs! Ha!
    Thank you,

  39. I like the stripe cardigan with the jeans. I also like the wide leg jeans.

    The Stripe Shaker Zip Cardigan has been on my Nsale wish list so I was happy to hear that you love it.

  41. Love, love, love this post, keep them coming! I have 2 items in my on my wishlist!

  42. So excited for this sale! Thank you for the review!!

  43. Would you believe that I have never attended a Nordstrom
    sale in person? The crowds are overwhelming and I don’t like to wait for a waiting room. So I stick to shopping online and you showed some really cute things.

    1. I stick to ordering online also. Nordstrom is not near me, and I only travel to the store once a year so I can try on the clothing in store during the NSale.

  44. I know that you keep to fashion/ faith posts mainly, but could you do a post on what you do to keep yourself healthy. Your diet and exercise routines? 😊
    It would be greatly appreciated, it really seems to get harder with age.

  45. I love the sweater and skirt set, but the line now aren’t working… Happy Wednesday❤❤❤

    1. Happy Wednesday ! ❤️❤️❤️

  46. Donna Carpenter says:

    All your looks were fab! But that last look was calling my name 😍

  47. Dorothy Kinnaman says:

    You look great in all these outfits!

  48. The white tee with the open front long cardigan looks lovely, but I personally am drawn to the wool/cashmere sweater. I couldn’t tell if it was black or navy. it really appeals to me. You look great in all the outfits!!

  49. The striped zipped short sleeve cardigan is my favorite!

  50. These choices are all great! I especially like the first one and the leather shirt dress. Unfortunately, Nordstroms is no longer available in Canada but at least I can save the pics for styling tips tp look for similar things here. Thanks for that!

    1. I hate that they shut down.

  51. Great items, my favorite is the striped zipped cardigan. Sounds like you had a good time.

  52. I like the last one but the faux leather dress is stunning.

  53. Love the leather dress! Beautiful!

  54. Clarice M says:

    The first outfit is perfect! I also loved the leather dress on you!

  55. Love these classic looks!

  56. LOVE the Stripe Shaker zip cardigan with Paige jeans and Raina waterproof boots. My kind of outfit!

  57. Everything looks great on you!!! And you look great too! 🌻😊🌻
    **Off topic, what color shoe would you wear with a blush color long formal dress, son’s fall wedding.
    I’m having a hard time finding something, I’m a 8 1/2 w.

    1. Are you talking about shoes? I always default to a neutral shoe. The one’s with clear straps are still popular, and they work with everything.

      1. Thank you Tania, I ordered nude heels, from Macys yesterday. Hopefully I will like at least one of them or both! 🙂🙂🙂

  58. All the outfits are cute!!!!!!

  59. Sounds like a good day in Atlanta!

  60. Cute stuff! Thx for shopping for us!
