Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend and your Monday is off to a great start. 🙂 Over the weekend, we went to a Night Mart in the village of Sewickley. Lots of sidewalk sales, food trucks, and live music. So fun!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale continues all week and as promised, I’m sharing my second try-on session. Honestly guys, there have been so many good items to choose from. I do feel like lots of cardigans are being offered this year. You think? Maybe not, maybe it’s just me? Anywho, let’s jump in and get started. 😀
Outfit Details: Unfortunately the BP Lace Trim Cami I’m wearing is no longer in stock. BUT – I found a dup on Amazon and guys, it looks nearly the same! :O Click here to check it out. It is the Y-Brown option, which comes in sizes S-XXL plus it got good reviews! // BLANKNYC High Waist Flare Jeans (wearing size 25).
This is a darling cami with eyelash details and adjustable straps, but since it’s unavailable, let’s focus on the jeans! The fit is perfection! They hug the body and have good stretch, but I don’t feel like they will stretch out and lose shape with continual wear. Just like the Leith flare jeans I tried on in the previous Nordstrom try-on haul, these have a long inseam, as well. I’m 5’6 for reference and even with a heel, they still puddled. I would definitely need to alter the length. If you are taller, these could be a great option! They have some whiskering and subtle fading around the knee area. Very comfy and easy to move around in. These fit TTS.
Love this tie waist cardigan! And I have to say, I love it even more with the leopard print cami underneath. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this cardi, but was pleasantly surprised by how soft it is. Love this red color, too. So gorgeous! And in the winter months, when it’s so grey and dreary outside, what a fun way to inject a pop of color! It comes in black, magenta, red, and teal. Last I checked, there was good availability in sizes and colors, with teal being most limited. This cardigan does have wool in it, so for anyone with allergies or sensitivity to wool, take caution. Fits TTS, but if you are in between sizes, I would size down.
Okay, I featured this cardigan in the oatmeal/beige color in my earlier Nordstrom try-on haul and absolutely loved it. In my opinion, I felt it fit TTS, but the website recommended sizing down. Sooooo, I am trying the black on in a XXS for comparison. Honestly, they both fit fine. What I noticed is that the sleeve length was slightly shorter and the fit was a bit more closer to the body in the XXS. I think you could go with your true size (if you prefer a slightly oversized look) or size down (for a closer fit). I was looking over the reviews and some felt it fit TTS and others thought it ran large. It really is going to be a personal fit preference. Plus, it depends on what you plan to layer under it. If it’s cami’s and tees, you may want to go down a size. But, if you plan to add knit pieces (turtlenecks, etc.), then you may want to order your regular size. Also, keep in mind that this cardi is 100% cotton. If laundered properly, I would hope it won’t shrink, but I tend to shrink everything even without trying. lol
In my earlier Nordstrom try-on haul, I tried the Leith flare jeans and was really impressed. So, I wanted to try out another piece from the brand. I selected this long cardigan. Again – equally impressed! It’s not bulky or heavy at all, but it’s not paper-thin either. It’s the perfect fall weight and actually for anyone that might be in a warmer climate that doesn’t get harsh winters, I could see this being a nice outer layer for you. It’s soft and pliable – lays very nicely on the body. It features a shaw collar and has side slits. I’m wearing the burgundy fudge color, which is like a deep wine-almost brown color. Fits TTS. There is a smidgen of wool (5%), so for anyone with allergies or sensitivity to wool, just something to note.
O.M.Geeee. Wow, no wonder it’s called “plushy” – this is super, super soft! Like, Barefoot Dreams quality soft. It comes in a few different colors, including a really cute stripe. As the name implies, it has a V neckline both in the front and back (not too deep though). It has nice length and good rear coverage. I could see this paired with leggings or skinnies. Fits TTS. Absolutely LOVE it.
That’s a wrap guys. Sizes and color options are getting limited as this sale continues, but if you can’t find it online, call (or chat with) the Nordstrom customer service team. I’ve leaned on them before when searching for items, and they were so extremely helpful! They may be able to locate the item you desire at a Nordstrom store and have it shipped to your home. Also, some items may get restocked. Keep checking back to Nordstrom.com.
Next blog, I’m going to share some of my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty exclusives. Until then, I hope you have a wonderful day and thank YOU for stopping by! I always love your company! XO ~ Michelle
