#NSale: HUGE Round-Up of Everything I Bought (+ What I Loved, What I Didn’t)

The Annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! I shop this sale every year bc it’s such a great time to get NEW merchandise on sale! That’s what makes the #NSale so unique – it’s not old merchandise, it’s all new. Just in time for back to school/Fall! I personally always look for great sweaters, boots, and denim, but there are SO many great finds this year.nordstrom anniversary sale picks 2018OVERALL IMPRESSION OF THE SALE: Good stuff this year! I shop this sale more & more intentionally every year as I’ve learned which pieces will get the most wear during the colder months. Which brings me to my next thought: Cold weather literally lasts at least half to almost 2/3 of the year in Ohio, sooo, I don’t mind investing in some quality pieces like denim, jackets/coats, and boots that I know I’ll wear year after year. I don’t like to spend a lot on sweaters or tops though – esp. w/ having kids!

WHAT I LOVED: This cardigan was my fave of the sale for price and color options! I loved it so much I bought it in two colors. These brown suede booties that come in three gorgeous colors are going to be go-to’s for sure! This very popular sweater that may still be sold out is so pretty. These Madewell jeans that I’ve already worn multiple times since they arrived are extremely flattering post-baby. Also, these Madewell jeans bc the hem/high rise/wash is amaze. These suede blush booties are a nice change up from my usual brown booties. The pop of this super soft yellow sweater (the price is awesome too) is refreshing. And it was love at first sight with this rose-colored cardigan.

WHAT I WOULD’VE LIKED TO HAVE KEPT: This cardigan. I liked it but just felt like it easily could get snagged with the kiddos! I really liked these suede pumps. I just don’t have enough places to wear them! Also, these FRAME denim jeans are sooo cute but I liked too many of the Madewell ones better (and they have a better price). The pink color that I bought in this North Face jacket was so pretty but the jacket was too small. Definitely size up if in between sizes!

WHAT DIDN’T WORK AT ALL: This Free People thermal was awful on me, y’all. Too short, the sleeves were too tight, too low cut, etc. Not a fan. I should’ve sized up in these olive jeans – they were a bit tight on me!
