If you didn’t get enough from my first Nordstrom Anniversary Sale try-on post, then get ready for more! The morning the sale went live to cardholders, I placed an online order for items that I knew weren’t available at my local store. And I’m glad I didn’t just rely on my in-store finds, because there are some goodies online! So, here is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 try-on part 2: the at-home addition! 😉
Can I just wear this outfit now? All three of these pieces are a YES!
The bodycon dress is ribbed, has a three-quarter sleeve, and comes to knee length. (I’m 5’7″!) It comes in other colors, including an army green/olive shade. Fit is TTS, but even if I wasn’t pregnant I would have still gone with the large. With bodycon dresses, I always like a little extra space so that they aren’t skin tight! (You can also see me wearing this dress in my fall pregnancy outfit post.)
Now let’s chat this cardi. It’s one of my favorites from the sale! It feels so soft and is a nice weight. What I love about it most is the length! Most of my cardigans are knee length, so this longer version is a fun change! It’s also perfect for pairing with leggings! Fit is TTS and also comes in a pale purple!
Lastly the booties! I had been wanting another pair of black low booties to replace a pair I’ve had for several years. These are an amazing price (under $70!) for real leather!! They are very comfy too. I plan on wearing them with dresses, jeans, and everything in between!
Same dress and moto booties from my previous outfit. This is just another way I’d wear them! This poncho was one of the first things I ordered because it’s such a staple fall piece! It’s only $25 and is the perfect outfit topper. Throw it on over dresses, tees and jeans, or even a turtleneck and pants when it gets cold!
You probably recognize this jacket from my in-store try-on, but since I already own a black moto jacket I wanted this one in another color. Y’all, I love it just as much in taupe. I’m still into the detachable hood because I love how casual it can make the jacket. (Think about pairing it with leggings, a tee, and sneakers!) But remember, the hood is removable and is easily dressed up!
As far as the sweater dress goes, I’m a bit on the fence. It is truly a thicker sweater material and I do really like the color too! The downside: the fit is very slinky. It shows every little bump and underwear line. It works great as a maternity-friendly option, but I don’t see myself wearing it if I weren’t expecting. If you love it, just be prepared to pair it with a shaper!
I ordered the sweater as an alternative to this Topshop version I previously tried on that’s about $10 more. And let me tell ya: I really thought I was going to like this one better, buuuut….I don’t. The material is thinner and I could see my bralette right through it. I do love the style, but I think it’s worth the extra $10 for the Topshop one!
I first saw these straight leg raw hem jeans in the catalogue, and instantly added them to my must-have postpartum list! The denim is lightweight but stiff. There isn’t much stretch there at all. I sized up two sizes, but I still am not sure how they’d work postpartum since they have no give. I think I’m going to stick with the Madewell pair I purchased in store instead!
These are my third pair of Spanx leggings, so it’s safe to say that I’m a fan. 😂The fit is seriously just so fabulous and flattering on the body. Although my faux leather pair that I wore pre-baby are a size medium (they are also on sale under $65!) , I sized up to a large in these. Fit is TTS but if you don’t want the sucked-in feeling, size up one!
Now the sneakers: I’ve owned these for over a year now and love them! The gray aren’t included in the sale but the off white and pink are! They have wonderful support with a built-in arch, which I love. Sizing is a bit big, so I recommend sizing down a half size!
I’m a bit of a cardigan addict, but I seriously wear one almost every single day during the fall and winter! I layer them over tees, dresses, turtlenecks, etc. I like this one because, like the midi cardigan option, it has a different length! It comes to about hip level. I love the color and oversized buttons too!
Over the knee boots that actually come over the knee and stay put? It’s not too good to be true. I wish I had tried them on with jeans that weren’t black so you could see them a bit better (oops!), but they hit about an inch above my knee. (I’m 5’7″ with very long legs!) The pointed toe is super-flattering and elongating too! I can’t wait to wear them with dresses and all my jeans. They also come in camel!
For everyday outfits, I love this thermal, which also comes in gray! It has working buttons, which makes it perfect for nursing or wearing open over another tee. You can also knot the bottom for a tighter fit! Fit is oversized. I’m in a medium!
Y’all know I love an off the shoulder top, and I knew this one would be perfect for nursing post-pregnancy! I’m so glad I followed the fit advice on Nordstrom’s website because it definitely fits oversized! I’m in a small and it still has stretch. I’d suggest sizing down one! It also comes in a solid and a yellow stripe version!
And there it is: another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 try-on done! Let me know what else you want to see from the sale!
