Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Top 13

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Top 13

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 

It's here y'all... the wait is finally over. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is NOW open to the public. I was lucky and got to shop the sale during the Early Access time and snagged some awesome pieces. I tried on as much as I could to help you all shop online EASY! I'm sharing all about the good items and about how the fit is. I also shared short videos on Insta stories telling all about the pieces too. So if you're an auditory person rather than visual head over to Styled by Sequins Instagram to listen in.

Before I get into the nitty gritty on the sale I want to apologize in advanced for the poor lighting on these pictures. I promise I will try my best to get these outfit shot. It's just SOO hard when i's 115 degrees here in Texas and you're wearing fall/winter clothing. I think these will still help you to shop the #nsale! 

Also, before I share the details about these pieces... I'm typically a small/ medium and will share if things run true to size or oversized. I find it helpful to know these things before shopping. I hate the feeling of disappointment when they don't fit right when I get them in the mail. As far as pants go I range between a 27 & 28. If I got a 28 - which I don't think I did, that probably ment it ran on the smaller side. I hope based on this info that it helps you to shop. Keep in mind- I'm not sharing these sizes to have you compare or make anyone feel bad. I'm just trying to help.

Let's get started & goooo shopping. Here are my top 13 picks from the N. Sale!! 

Outfit #1

Top: TopShop size 6 - Bottoms: AG Jeans size 27

What I love about this top is it has amazing coverage and isn't revealing. It fits true to size. When I shop TopShop I notice many of the items tend to run a tad smaller. This goes for TopMen too. The AG jeans are AMAZING as you may have guessed. I love AG jeans because they're made super well. I can trust that this brand won't wear over time and will stay put throughout the day. 

Outfit #2

Top: Free People sweater size small - Bottoms: AG Jeans size 27 

This sweater is amazing and fits oversized. I wish I snagged it while I was in the store. I can probably predict this will be a quick seller. So many people have been loving it- like do I. I would size down jus because it's loose fitting, but keep in mind when you do you might loose length. I'm typically a small/medium so a small worked perfect for me. The sleeves are super trendy for fall so don't let that scary you way. I promise it's not "too much!" Style this sweater with jeans and booties or leggings for a causal look. 

Outfit #3 

Top: Graphic Tee - Bottoms: AG Jeans size 27 

It might be hard to read this - sorry in advance... but it says "but first... Nordstrom" I need this tee in my life for so many reasons, don't you?! It's my favorite graphic tee because it speaks my life. Omg I sound ridiculous- jus being real! If you're a nordy girl like me then you NEED this tee ASAP!! To style it, pair it with jeans or leggings + throw a chunky sweater over top and you're good to go!

Outfit #4

Jacket: Carson Camo size medium... need a small - Bottom: AG Jeans size 27

This jacket is the best camo jacket I have come across. The detailing is amazing and too perfect for words. It comes in a basic army green color too. It does run on the larger side so I highly suggest you size down a size or two. It goes with every basic tee you have and even looks cute with the graphic tee that I just shared. 

Outfit #5

Sweater: Treasure & Bond size small - Leggings: Spanx faux leather size medium

On my Insta stories during a try on haul I shared many ways to style the Spanx faux leather leggings. This is one way to style it- just pair it with a basic tank and darling cardigan. You could even wear this outfit with Nike Sneakers or black booties too. I love this preppy/ street style look. It screams fall to me! 

 

Outfit #6

IMG_1898.jpg

Tank: Adidas tank size medium... need a small - Leggings: Spanx faux leather size medium

Here is an athlesure outfit style that looks darling for any day. I don't suggest to workout in these leggings because they're not ment for that. Athlesure is the look you go for when you want to look like you went to gym, but really you're making Starbucks and Target runs. This outfit is an A+ in my book. 

Outfit #7

Dress: ASTR size small 

This year I sadly didn't find any dresses that I was crazy about. I did like this one in the navy/black color. I tried the white on and I HATED it. The white color was see through and not so flattering on. This one is loose fitting and the color flatters more. If you're looking for a dress for fall/winter season, this one is a good one. The material is perfect and doesn't hug in wrong places. 

Outfit #8

IMG_1917.jpg

Cardigan: BP black size small - Tank: BP white (dupe here) - Leggings: Spanx size medium - Shoes: Nike Sneakers (dupe here)

This darling casual outfit is my favorite and will be a outfit repeater for sure. I love how the cardi is long enough so I can wear these leggings to teach in. The best part about this whole outfit is it's sooo comfortable. 

Outfit #9

IMG_1937.jpg

Sweater: SOLD OUT- will restock

Shoes: fully stocked & I sized a half size up for walking room.

This white sweater is a must have for your fall/winter wardrobe. It's flattering and has the perfect amount of "chunk"- y'all need to snag it when it's stocked in your size. 

IMG_1932 2.jpg

Skirt: Left is grey & right is brown. Keep your eye out as sizes have come and go! Be sure to come back to the blog to shop! - Shoes: fully stocked & fits TTS...wearing the foxy color

These skirts are my favorite from the N. sale - expect my problem is which color do I like?! I posted a Instagram story pull on this and the verdict was the brownish one. I love both colors but the brown seems to go with more! I'm keeping the brown this season. 

Outfit #10

Skirt: sizing is limited and comes and goes. I ordered a 28 and sized up for length - Shoes: fully stocked & fits TTS...wearing the foxy color

This outfit is perfect for transitioning into fall -especially here in Texas. The other great thing about this outfit is the skirt is the perfect length and it comfortable to teach in. These shoes are the most comfiest shoes I have ever worn and totally can stand all day in these. 

Outfit #11

Sweater: Color block BP sweater size S/M - Leggings: Spanx faux leather size medium - Shoes: Leopard slingback flats (fits TTS)

A fun and sassy outfit for fall and winter is always a good idea! I noticed this sweater fits on the shorter size and would be better paired with jeans. These shoes are super comfortable add the perfect amount of "EXTRA" to the outfit. 

Outfit #12

IMG_1957.jpg

Leggings: I sized to a medium in these leggings because of the mesh - Tank: different tank but perfect for these leggings 

Athlesure outfits are so in right now and this one is my top favorite. I kept these leggings because they were too hard to pass. They will sell quick so y'all need to get them while your size is there. Style this outfit with fun athlesure shoes and you're set for the day. 

Shoe Round Up

Holy shoe galore!! I noticed shoes are the number one item that sells out so quick!! I had my eye on a pair of Adidas and they sold out so quick. So when I say things sell out they really do! These shoes are some of my favorites from the sale. They all fit true to size. Mules I would size up a 1/2 size, booties are true to size, sneakers are true to size too! If you see a pair of shoes that are not in your size click this LINK HERE and keep checking back on the BLOG!

I tried my best to share all the best items from the sale. When things get sold out or low in stock it makes it hard to help you all. I'm doing my best to inform when things are back in stock etc.. If there's anything you need or need help finding a dupe to please let me know. I'm so grateful for all the support because remember I'm here to help YOU!! 

Happy shopping!!

Love from Texas,
