Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Due to the heat index levels, we spent our time either relaxing poolside (although we got chased out by some incoming storms) or indoors in the AC. Hoping for some drier, more comfortable weather this week. Oh, we also tried a new white wine. I’m mostly a red wine drinker, but a friend gave us a bottle of the Les Sonnailles Blanc Demi Sec to try. It was wonderful! It’s a white blend from France and is a great summertime wine. Not too sweet, not too dry. Click here if you’re interested in learning more or purchasing a bottle.
Well it’s finally here – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to everyone! 👏🏻 Have you guys been shopping it? I’m gong to be doing two separate try on hauls- one today and then one a bit later. I’m super excited to share with you some of my favorite pieces from the Sale that I think could be great staples or additions to your fall wardrobe. As in previous years, items do tend to sell out pretty quick. If you see something you like, but it’s not available in your size – try calling Nordstrom customer service (or use the chat feature). They may be able to track down your size or tell you if/when items will be restocked. In today’s try on haul, all items fit TTS. 😃
I absolutely love this cardigan! It comes in two color options – grey/black and beige/navy. It’s more a boyfriend fit with stylish stripes and button front. Talk about effortless layering. This cardigan is perfect to transition from summer to fall. Wear it now with a tank top and white shorts and in the fall with jeans – perfect for a football game! I didn’t try a lot of jeans this year – only two pairs/brands – the Leith flare being one of them. I’m a newbie to the Leith brand and have to say, these are really nice jeans! I am more of a skinny or straight leg jean girl, but wanted to try something different. Glad I did. Super comfy! They have some stretch and the leg style makes your legs look like they go on and on. The flare isn’t too extreme either. The leg length is long, so something to keep in mind. I’m 5’6 for reference and am wearing a heeled open toed bootie. If you’re taller than me, I think the length will be perfect for you. If you are shorter, then you most likely will need to have the length taken up. A service Nordstrom does provide, I believe.
Okay, so this sweater is a higher price point item, so I know it’s not for everyone. But, if your budget allows, this is a fabulous sweater to have in your fall/winter sweater rotation. It is high quality and how pretty is the honeycomb detail on the turtleneck, down the front and sleeves (also in the back). Just gorgeous and VERY soft. I would say the body length is slightly shorter (not cropped) – perfect to pair with high waist jeans.
I’m loving this cardigan! It comes in a few other color options including black, brown cattail (think mustard) and red. No matter the color choice, you’ll find endless ways to wear this cardi. It’s made of 100% breathable cotton and is lightweight. Not bulky at all. And no buttons to fuss with. Makes for a great staple piece. Wear it with shorts, jeans, over dresses and skirts. It’s good quality and will definitely be in heavy rotation come fall! The website says it runs large and to order one size down however I feel it fits TTS. I am wearing my normal size.
I’m obsessed with this Moto! It’s a classic piece elevated thanks to the soft suede. It’s so cute and the quality is exceptional. Wear it with jeans, dresses, dress pants and skirts. This is another high price point item, but it’s a staple… one that won’t go out of style … that you’ll wear on repeat. It is so soft and supple. I wish you could feel it. The hardware is silver and you’ll notice there are zippers on the sleeves if you need the extra room.
Outfit Details: Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover (wearing XS) // My AG Stilt Skinny Jeans are not from the Nordstrom Sale, but from StitchFix (wearing size 2). I own two of these fleecy pullovers in different brands and wear them constantly throughout winter. Living in the North East, our winters can be harsh and it’s the perfect piece to throw on for added warmth. If you live in an area where your winters don’t get as cold, maybe this is a good outwear layer for you. I love the quarter-zip closure and kangaroo pocket. It is intentionally over-sized, allowing for layering if needed. LOVE!
That’s it for now, but I will have another Nordstrom try-on haul in the near future, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by! XO ~ Michelle
