6 Outfits You Need from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + A Giveaway!

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Today I’m sharing six outfits that I know you will love (and that will sell out fast!) filled with some of my favorite finds from the sale. I gravitated towards a lot of basics this year, took note of what got the most wear in my closet last year and tried to repeat similar purchases. At the end of the post I’m going to share some more favorites that you don’t want to miss that made their way into my closet. Plus, don’t miss an amazing giveaway at the bottom of this post. Happy shopping!!

Outfit 1: I loooove this little black t-shirt dress. I’m always on the hunt for cute and comfy dresses where I can get up and go, bonus when they work well with sneakers. The knotted detail is so flattering and I love the unexpected slit. It isn’t dramatic unless you want it to be (#angelinaleg) but slimming and super flattering. I’m definitely going to order this dress in the grey too.  I paired it with this new color of my favorite Adidas Flashback sneaker – which I now have in 3 colors. They are so comfy and sleek. Honestly my favorite wear with everything sneaker.

Outfit 2: I was initially drawn to this dress because of the flattering silhouette. I’m a sucker for a cinched waist (it is elastic underneath the belt!). I love that it works now with a cute pair of sandals, with booties, layered with a leather jacket or a cardigan – honestly anything. The print is fun but also subtle and is a great staple in any woman’s closet. Can we talk about these boots? Soooo good you guys. The quality is amazing!! I was between these and this Tory Burch pair and honestly these are so chic and flattering. They hit your leg at the perfect spot and really lengthen your legs. The suede is such a high quality too and I was so torn between colors (I also love the camel color). Love love love! This bag is a cutie, too.

Socialite Button Down Tee (wearing a medium), Rag & Bone Jeans (true to size), Madewell Cardigan (wearing an xsmall), Steve Madden Mules, Le Specs Sunglasses

Outfit 3: I’m always on the hunt for a good basic white tee. I almost didn’t pick this top up (wasn’t so cute on the hanger) but I loooooove it. Honestly it is the cutest, comfy basic. I compared it to a blouse that I’ve been searching for for years but in a comfy jersey material (still searching for the blouse version). I tried on a lot of jeans and these are the only pair that came home with me. To be honest, I always go back to my dark wash jeans. I tried on so many cute pairs of a lighter wash in the dressing room and Dave kept giving me the “cute but no” face and I listened! And it’s true! These are STAPLES. Layered with my new favorite blush cardigan that is basically a neutral and the cutest studded slides.

Outfit 4: One of my favorites! Trust me when I say you will love this top. It is so soft and not itchy and amazing. I love that it looks cute untucked and tucked in and would be perfect layered under anything. One of the first things I purchased yesterday were these mules. I was torn between these and the Vince style (more $$$ but BEAUTIFUL) and I’m so glad I snagged these. Such a comfortable shoe that is cute with jeans, dresses, skirts – whatever. I am considering ordering the grey, too! Also, wanted to note this bag which we sadly didn’t get a great snapshot of but it is so good. I love the limited branding and the clean shape. The leather is so soft and the grey and blue colors are so pretty for now and into fall!

Outfit 5: You guys went crazy for this sweater preview on my IG stories and for good reason – it is so much fun! I love the color combo and I was pleasantly surprised to see it was not itchy at all. I feel like this will be my go-to on days when I don’t want to get dressed. It immediately makes you look/feel styled. Ok guys, I tried on soooo many booties at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and this is the only pair I walked away with. I wanted a pair that wasn’t a grey brown, wasn’t a chocolate brown and would go with everything. I’m usually drawn to this lighter color because it looks good with browns and black. They are so comfy and I love the belt detail! A three other bootie styles I loved were these, these and these

Outfit 6: One of my best selling products last year was a Barbour coat and I was so excited to see this lighter version this year! Honestly, I reach for this coat more than any other coat in my closet. It is the perfect in-between jacket for year round. I would size up a size in these! I wish I had grabbed the US 6 and already have it ordered. How many stripe tee’s is too many? This stripe tee is lightweight and I love the length. Such an easy, no-fail outfit. I promise this easy tee (under $20!) is going to go fast. If you’re looking for a neutral bag, this Madewell crossbody is such an easy option at a great price point. The shape is awesome and it shockingly fits so much!

Don’t forget these fun items!

I loooove these Vince loafers (seen here!), so flattering and fit true to size. I bought this cozy pullover after missing it last season and the hype is real – so so soft and cozy. I’m debating this simple human cosmetic mirror because I’ve heard amazingggg things. I love the silhouette of these trouser Frame jeans. I already have these Nike sneakers in my shopping cart! I bought the sweater version of this knotted sweatshirt last year and know I’ll get so much wear out of this. I also bought this cutie heart shirt – I love this flattering silhouette. This cable sweater is the most expensive thing I purchased but I know I’ll have it forever (it is like butter).
