Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Review of What I Bought & 22 Styled Looks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public today!! If you’ve been shopping the sale like I have, you know this year there are so many amazing deals! I am hoping to pick up a few more goodies today as they restock the sale for the public!

Today I am sharing some of the pieces I picked up during early access (and a few pieces I already owned and are part of the sale!). I am still waiting on a few packages to arrive, but hope to update this with pictures when I get them (hopefully a few arrive later today)! I have shared a little bit of insight on each piece. I have styled a few of these pieces multiple ways! Scroll all the way to the bottom for shoe reviews!

FYI: I am 5’3 and usually a xs/s in tops and a 25 in bottoms. My shoe size is 7!

Long Sleeve Tee // Suede Jacket // Denim // Booties

Halogen Long Sleeve Striped Tee (NOW: $25 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: XS): This long sleeve tee is a closet staple. It’s super soft and stretchy and extremely lightweight. I love the tighter fit, which makes it perfect for tucking into bottoms. It gives the look of a bodysuit without the inconvenience of one. This is a layering piece I know I will get a ton of wear out of this fall and winter. It comes in a variety of colors and I’ve already added a few more to my cart.

BLANKNYC Next Level Suede Moto Jacket (NOW: $126 // AFTER SALE: $188 // SIZE: XS): I purchased the BLANKNYC Morning Suede Jacket in coffee bean 3 years ago and still wear it all the time. When I saw the gorgeous grey option, I knew I had to snag it! I love that this one doesn’t have the bottom belt buckle that the Morning Suede version’s do. This jacket fits like a glove and the suede is buttery soft. I have a small in my Morning Suede jacket, but decided to go with an XS in this one for a closer fit. If you plan on layering chunky sweaters, I would size up, but otherwise, stick to your regular size.

Good American High Waist Skinny Jeans (NOW: $113 // AFTER SALE: $169 // SIZE: 00): If you are going to splurge on one piece of denim, let it be these. I have never loved a pair of jeans like I do these! The fit is SO GOOD. It’s an incredibly flattering cut and I feel like they would look good on any body shape, and trust me, these do your booty alllll the favors. Every year I splurge on a pair of dark wash denim that I can wear in the classroom and I am so excited to throw these into the  rotation!

Tee // Ribbed Cardigan // Denim // Flats // Hat

BP V-Neck Tee (NOW: $12 // AFTER SALE: $15 // SIZE: XS): Now is the time to stock up on these basic tees! These are great for everyday wear and layering. I always end up picking them up in a few colors. I get questions on how they wash all the time and have had no issues in the past! I usually wash and then hang dry a couple of times before deciding I don’t really care and throwing them in the dryer, lol. I do think they run a bit big and suggest sizing down, unless you like the oversized look!

Topshop Long Cardigan (NOW: $45 // AFTER SALE: $68 // SIZE: ): This is the cozy cardi of my dreams! I ended up snagging this ribbed cardigan in two colors and know it’s going to be on repeat all fall and winter long. This is the ultimate cozy cardigan and is perfect for layering. Teachers, this is a GREAT find for cold days in the classroom! I usually size down in sweaters from this brand, but I guess wasn’t paying attention when I ordered because I ended up with smalls. This cardi is very oversized, but the size small actually works. Size down if you don’t want a super slouchy fit!

Free People Ripped High Waist Skinny Jeans (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78 // SIZE: 26): My all time favorite denim, I own this pair in a few washes and was so excited to see it was part of the sale this year! They do run small…make sure to size up!

Sweater // Denim // Mules

Topshop Supersoft Deep Hem Crewneck Sweater (NOW: $45 // AFTER SALE: $68 // SIZE: XS): This sweater is SO cozy! This is the type of oversized goodness I live in during the winter time. It’s a pretty heavy knit, so if you live somewhere that doesn’t get too cold, you might want to skip out on this one. However, if you live somewhere the temps drastically drop, this is the cozy knit for you! This is one that will layer perfectly when it is freezing out!

Levi’s Ribcage Super High Waist Ankle Straight Leg Jeans (NOW: $65 // AFTER SALE: $98 // SIZE: 25): These jeans were one of the biggest surprises for me. I ordered them on a whim because I love the fit of Levi’s. I didn’t particularly love the stock photo, and let me tell you, it does not do this pair of denim justice.

I love the leather look of these because while they look like leather, they don’t look like some of the cheesier faux leather leggings that almost look plastic. They fit like a glove and are probably one of my all time favorite purchases. If you’ve been on the fence on these, get them!

Last year, leopard mules were the very first thing that made it into my cart, and let me tell you, I almost wore those babies out.

2018 Top Ten Items Still in Stock

Happy 2019 babes! I  took  little time off from blogging to refresh and recharge and am excited to be back in action! I’ve got some fun post ideas coming your way in the new year! Before jumping into 2019, I thought it would be fun to do a 2018 recap of the top ten items that are still in stock! These are the most popular items as decided by your clicks! Because clothing items go in and out of stock so quickly, these are just the top ten that are still available to shop! Check out the favorites below!

10. Thermal Button Down Top

This top seller was one of MY favorite pieces in 2018 and still continues to be one of my most worn! It comes in a ton of color options and can be tied or un tied. It’s slouchy enough to pair with a bralette and is oh so cozy. Bonus, it’s still in stock and currently on sale for under $35!

9. Peplum Tee

This peplum top was so nice I bought it not once, but THRICE. I own this peplum in 3 colors. It’s a great basic to have on hand. A staple with a little bit of sass! This cutie is one that goes from season to season and is great for the classroom!

8. Sherpa Wubby Pullover

This fuzzy sherpa pullover was my best discovery of 2018. I have lived in this cozy thing since picking it up last winter. I ended up sizing up to a medium for an oversized fit. I can wear it with leggings and find it perfect for winter layering. Have you given in to the sherpa or faux fur trend yet??

7. Chunky Cable Knit Cardigan

In the winter months, there is nothing better than a good chunky knit cardigan. This one is super warm and has the prettiest cable knit detailing. It’s the perfect layering piece and will take you from winter to spring! Snag it now for 30% off with code ASHLEY30.

6. Sandals

I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can pull out these Steven slides! These are by far the most comfortable little slides and they go with everything! I was excited to see that these came out in a ton of new colors/styles this year and will definitely be adding another pair to my spring and summer wardrobe!

5. Pom Sleeve Cardigan

How fun is this cardigan? The sleeves really make this sweater a unique little number. It comes in a ton of colors, but I was so drawn to this shade of mustard this past year! If this color isn’t for you, it does come in a bunch of other options!

4. Oversized Peplum Tee

I’ve been sharing this peplum a ton on IG lately. It’s still in stock and ON SALE for under $25! I own this top in a few colors and it’s another closet staple. It’s super comfortable and I love the hem! It does run a bit big, I ordered a size XS!

3. One shoulder Swimsuit

I wore a lot of swimsuits last year and this one was one of my favorites. I love the unique cutout on this one piece! While this print isn’t currently available, I fell in love with this bright rainbow option and immediately added it to my cart. I have no vacation plans anytime soon, but I just couldn’t say no to this super cute one piece!

2. Striped Sweatshirt

This Wildfox sweatshirt was by far my favorite purchase of 2018. I am a sucker for stripes and this bright colored number still brings a smile to my face every time I wear it! Fun fact, this sweatshirt was quite popular and this photo ended up being stolen by multiple online stores claiming to sell it. Buyers beware, my exact option is linked, so if you see this photo on a random site, don’t fall for it!

1. AGOLDE Denim Shorts

And the number one seller this year? These AGOLDE shorts. These are a bit of a splurge, but honestly worth every penny. I wear these shorts SO much in the summer. I love the fit and the fact that they are a bit longer in the back than the front. They aren’t uber short and have just the right amount of distressing. I also love the wash of these and find that they go with everything!

UPDATE: Spend $250 from now until Cyber Monday and get $50! Start shopping now!

 Happy Saturday friends! Anybody else loving all of the great shopping this week? So many sales, so little time…it’s hard to keep up with it all and can be overwhelming. If you are going to shop at just one place this week, let it be Nordstrom! Nordstrom has the brands you love at up to 60% off! Not only can you get all of your Christmas shopping done in one place, but you can also update your wardrobe for the upcoming season! Need an item now? Not to worry! Buy your item online and pick it up in store in the same day!

The first items I look for when shopping Nordstrom on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, are cold weather items for bundling up and winter layering pieces. I always find the best deals on coats, boots, sweaters and denim. I snagged this coat for just $38, which is a STEAL for a peacoat! It comes in a variety of colors and is a classic winter staple. I’ve been in need of a new pair of winter boots and picked these up for $100. I love the color combo and can’t tell you how comfortable they are! They are technically rain boots, but are so warm and will be perfect for slushy, snowy days!

I was excited to see this tee on sale for just $15. You might remember I dedicated a whole post to this tee, and a year later I still swear by it. I wear this one so much that I picked duplicates up in a few colors. It’s a must have staple, long enough to wear with leggings and the price can’t be beat! Speaking of must have tees, the tie hem thermals are all the rage and this one is so comfortable and under $30! I topped it with the ultimate chunky cardigan (with the cutest sleeves), that’s currently on sale for $34!

If you are looking for a great pair of booties to go with everything, you can’t miss these. They are comfortable, easy to walk in and the slight dip at the front adds a flattering touch that elongates the leg. On another exciting note, my FAVORITE jeans are also part of the sale, and are less than $50. These jeans are my most worn (I own them in multiple washes). They do run a bit small, so make sure to size up!

JULY 2018 Top Ten

Happy August 1st! Before I share today’s top ten I have to share that today is my husband and I’s 3 year anniversary! I am so excited for a mid-week date night to celebrate 3 years of marriage with my best friend. Check out our engagement story and winter engagement session and our whimsy UP engagement shoot and then our wedding posts which are in 3 installments … getting ready // first look and bridal party //ceremony. Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with us!

This month’s top ten involves lots of summer stripes and some Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds!

10. Knot Front Cutout Dress

This dress has become one of my go-to’s this summer! It’s so easy to wear, comfortable and the knot detail adds a fun touch! Nothing like a t-shirt dress for easy, effortless summer style!

9. Ribbed Body Con Midi Dress

This dress is so flattering and one of my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds! This cutie can be dressed up or down for work or date night! The best part? It’s just $30! See how I styled it here.

8. Articles of Society Cutoff Denim Shorts

I love a good pair of distressed denim cutoffs and was excited to discover these. They do run a bit small…I ended up ordering 1 size up, and even read reviews of others ordering 2 sizes up, so know this before shopping! But for $50, you can’t beat these! A great light-wash and just the right amount of distressing makes these your new fave summer shorts!

7. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee

Hands down my favorite t-shirt! I was so excited to see that it was part of the sale. I actually owned this in a few colors before the sale and ended up picking it up in 3 more colors during the nsale. For one, it’s on sale for $12 and 2, it’s the PERFECT tee! I love how this one washes, the slightly oversized fit and how easy it layers!

6. Nubby Cardigan

This cardigan is such a steal! I will be wearing this cozy piece all fall and winter long! If you’ve been thinking about splurging on a Barefoot Dreams cardigan, this is a great dupe and alternative!! This one has been going in and out of stock and I’m hoping for a full re-stock after the sale. This is a sweater that’s worth full price!

5. Colorblock Knit Pullover

I love love LOVE this sweater! The color combo is absolute perfection. I can’t even imagine a more fun or perfect mix of colors! The one thing to note about this sweater is that it’s on the shorter size. I’m wearing a US 4 and it fits perfectly, but if I re-ordered, I might have sized up for a more oversized fit!

4. Studded Loafer Mule

One of my favorite pairs of mules is on sale and comes in 3 gorgeous colors! I got these this spring and love the unique detail of the studs! They also come in black leather and a gorgeous burgundy suede that is perfect for fall! These are the COMFIEST mules I own!!

3. Striped Top

This top was a top seller right around the end of June, beginning of July and it’s no wonder why! It was the perfect top for the 4th of July! This fun summer top fits like a body suit, but without the actual annoying body suit aspect because let’s be real…body suits are SO unrealistic…especially when you have to go to the bathroom!

2. Relaxed Tank

This is a great layering basic. It’s so soft and comfortable too! Pair it with a cardigan or jacket and easily dress it up or down! It’s currently available in 4 colors and just $20! Size up to be able to knot the front!

10. Castaway Striped Sweater

This sweet summertime sweater was top seller for the month of July by FAR. But it’s no wonder why…pastel stripes? Yes please! The great thing about this cutie is it is perfectly oversized, meaning you can wear it over leggings, as a dress, or tuck it in with denim shorts!
