Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 – My First Picks!

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale week!! Whew, the last few days have been so hectic! I was able to shop the sale early on Wednesday – the day before early access, which was such a huge help. Thank you so much to Shae Rosen! If you’re in the Austin area and looking for a personal stylist – she is EXCELLENT and so sweet. On Thursday morning I was up at 4am for Early Access working my butt off trying to get everything linked. During this time the linking system most bloggers use crashed and then we drove so much traffic to the Nordstrom site – it also crashed! Ha! Needless to say, the exhaustion is REAL and I am just now finally able to get this up today! If you already follow me on IG – which most of you already do. All of this was covered in my stories and saved in my highlights. I’ll be going over sizing for all of my picks here!

You have to be a card member to shop the sale now until July 19th.  If you’re not a card member and want to be, just go HERE.

Okay lets just jump right in! I’ll have this divided into a few categories. I really focused on grabbing essential basics during the sale, items that I can wear over and over as well as mix and matching through fall.

 

BASICS

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

cami // denim // booties

BP Lace Trim Satin camisole:  This is a closet staple. I can’t tell you how many times during the fall I grab a cami. They’re perfect for layering and the lace detail adds a little feminine touch. The straps are adjustable. It’s TTS, I am wearing an XS. I also grabbed it in black, which will be pictured below.

Price: Regular price $35 // Sale price $22.90

Articles of Society Sarah Jeans: I grab Articles of Society jeans every year, throughout the year and during the sale because the price is so good. They’re comfortable and stretchy. These don’t have any rips which is unusual for me to grab but its good for a little change. I grabbed my usual 26.

Price: Regular price $64 // Sale price $41.90

Vince Camuto Kentvi Sandal: Ahhh, these are my FAVORITE bootie of the whole sale (not sure why they called them a sandal, I’m assuming because of the open toe). They’re really comfortable and TTS. I am wearing my usual 7.5. I have a feeling I will be wearing these a TON!

Price: Regular price $149.99 // Sale price $99.90

 

 

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

tee // denim // booties

Caslon Rounded V Neck: An everyday basic. Can’t have too many white tee’s, right? I normally grab a few every year because I wear them so much they usually wear out after a year of washes. Wearing an XS. Pictured below is the pink option.

Price: Regular price $25 // Sale price $17.90

Vince Camuto Reeista Bootie: These are very similar to the pair that was released last year. This year I opted for the “greystone suede” color. These are TTS. I grabbed my usual 7.5. I can’t speak for the comfort because I haven’t walked around in them but I had no problem with last years version. Hopefully these will be the same.

Price: Regular price $149.99 // Sale price $99.90

Articles of Society Heather Jeans: I love the fun hem on these and they have minimal rips. They’re really comfortable and have a good stretch like jeggings. These fit TTS. I am wearing a 26.

Price: Regular price $68 // Sale price $44.90

 

 

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

tee // denim // booties

BP Raw Edge V Neck Tee: Can’t go wrong with a stripe tee for this price. This tee comes in 5 solid colors and 2 stripes. I sized up to a S for a more oversized fit and I can get a better knot out of it when it’s a tad longer. I will say, the white version is very see through. I still ended up grabbing it but it only looks good layered with a cardigan or jacket on top. I would’t wear it alone. The stripe version is fine though as well as the solid colors.

Price: Regular price $17 // Sale price $11.90

BP Raw Edge Scoop Neck tee: This is another great basic. It comes in 4 solid colors and 2 stripe versions. It has a slight distressed hem, its not super soft but it’s comfortable, easy to wear and perfect for layering. I am wearing an XS.

Price: Regular price $29 // Sale price $18.90

 

 

CARDIGANS

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

Leith Ribbed Shawl Cocoon Cardigan: This cardigan is very similar to last years but this years version is ribbed and it seems lighter. I LOVE this one and like it better than the last versions. It comes in 5 colors – the others are linked below and the tan color is also pictured below. It fits TTS. I am wearing an XS.

Price: Regular price $69 // Sale price $45.90

BP Stitch Curve Hem Cardigan: Another great cardigan option, also ribbed and soo cozy. I ended up returning this one and grabbed it in “brown cattail” and “pink cedar”. Fits TTS. I am wearing an XS.

Price: Regular price $49 // Sale price $31.90

 

 

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

Free People Saturday Morning Cardigan: I grabbed this cardigan last season in “ivory” and I’m obsessed! Its oversized and warm and perfect for chilly nights. I’m wearing an XS/S. I prefer this one over the popular chunky topshop cardigan.

Price: Regular price $148 // Sale price $98.90

 

 

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

wrap cardigan // cami // denim // slides

Gibson Convertible Cozy Fleece Wrap Cardigan: I love how feminine this wrap cardigan is. It’s really soft. It can be intimidating to put on but once you get it its really easy – just has to be adjusted so it lays right. TTS. Wearing an XS.

Price: Regular price $68 // Sale price $45.90

 

 

BP. Tonya Open Toe Mule: This is such an adorable shoe. The slit at the top is really fun and this also elongates the legs. I think these are really flattering on. I did not take these home though only because I stay more casual and I’m not sure I will get much use out of them truthfully.

Price: Regular price $79.95 // Sale price $49.90

 

COZY THERMALS

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

Price: Regular price $39 // Sale price $25.90

Socialite Thermal Henley Top: Another good basic.  It will transition great into the fall with a pair of shorts and booties. I grabbed a S. I ended up keeping the camo version and want to go back for the tan if it restocks soon because it’s already sold out unfortunately.

Price: Regular price $38 // Sale price $24.90

 

 

SWEATERS

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

sweater // denim // booties

Leith Rib Wrap Sweater: This sweater is one of my top favorites. I love the fit and look of this one! It would be great if your nursing too, easy access :). This one looks really feminine and the price is spot on! I am wearing an XS, runs big, size down if you’re in between.

Price: Regular price $59 // Sale price $39.90

BP Twist Front Sweater: This sweater was adorable. I love the color of this one. Its a fun “twist” to an otherwise boring sweater. I am wearing an XS.

Price: Regular price $39 // Sale price $31.90

BlankNYC Raw Hem Denim Skirt: I opted not getting this one because I prefer my denim skirts with a bit more stretch and a bit tighter around the legs. It was really cute though! I just don’t wear skirts that much so it has to be perfect. This one did fit TTS. I am wearing my usual 26.

Price: Regular price $78 // Sale price $51.90

Other skirts available:

 

JACKETS

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

jacket // cami // denim // booties

BlankNYC No Limit Suede Moto Jacket: I miss this jacket EVERY YEAR and year after year I regret it. The quality of these jackets are SO good and they look great dressed up or down. I love this olive color this year and so glad I finally snagged one. It also comes in a red this year. It fits TTS. I normally grab one size up in jackets. Wearing a S.

Price: Regular price $188 // Sale price $125.90

Madewell Crop Anorak Jacket: This jacket is a great closet staple. So many ways to wear this one even with denim shorts and a white tee when transitioning into Fall. I am wearing a S. Fits TTS.

Price: Regular price $98 // Sale price $64.90

Rails Collins Military Jacket: If I had a bottomless budget I would have grabbed this one for sure. It is trendy and fun but it’s pricey. Unfortunately, I had to leave this one behind. Wearing a S.

Price: Regular price $228 // Sale price $149.90

BLANKNYC Cloud Nine Drape Jacket: There is a reason they call this jacket “cloud nine”. I have NEVER felt anything softer than this jacket! Seriously it feels amazing. I didn’t grab this jacket at first but when I went back the second day I decided to give it a try and I’m SO glad I did. It immediately came home with me. I love how drapey it is and it looks so so cute layered with a slouchy tee.

Price: Regular price $90 // Sale price $59.90

 

 

PULLOVER

Sophisticated and Styled - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 First Picks!

Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover: This pullover was SO popular last season and I am so glad its back and already on sale! This is a must! I have the pink version as well. It is oversized, so cozy and warm. If you live somewhere where it snows you NEED this one!
