So I got my order in time to shoot a try on haul!! That video will be added to the post as soon as I am done with so please BOOKMARK & COME BACK. I truly appreciate you taking the time to come back to the blog and I hope you continue to use me as a resource for all your shopping needs💋

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Basics

Ok so the one item I knew was gonna sell out were the Caslon U-neck tees and I was right as of last check they were sold out they have RESTOCKED (limited quantities) in black and white I am hoping they will restock Here
My next fav from the sale would be the High Waist Seamed Leggings by LYSSÉ. I realized during the Try on that I actually owned a pair of Lysse leggings. It was gifted to me a couple of years ago during Curvy-con and it has held up remarkably. They are definitely worth it. I also picked up the Zella leggings and honestly I love it just as much as the Lysse for different reasons.

The first favorite would be the Yommi Chelsea Bootie
by MARC FISHER. I know for a fact that these boots will pay for themselves 100 times over because they can literally be worn with everything. They’re a pull on style and are made up of a very comfortable soft leather that will mold to your feet over time.
The next surprise favorite was the Kerrin Oxford
ED ELLEN DEGENERES. When I first put my feet in them they seemed to run a little narrow after wearing them with diffrent outfits during the try on they seem to loosen up. They are made up of a wool like fabric. Their gray color makes them very versatile and they paired well with the Madewell tote .
If you know me you know I luv a printed accessory, especially a printed Flat. One of the easiest ways to add interest to a look is to throw on a printed accessory and these Raisa Bow Flat
by SAM EDELMAN do just that (they go up to a size 13). They come in a variety of solid colors and printed colors and I’m hoping the restock the Gingham pair in a size 11 Here
Honestly every shoe I got exceeded my expectation except for this One, and it wasn’t because of any problem with the shoe BTW it was because I had a harder time than I thought to styling it.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale  Best Toppers (Jackets & Sweaters)

So I picked up 3 jackets and If I had to pick one it would be the Sejour Leather Moto Jacket in OLIVE (peoples choice), I got it in a 16W. The leather is soft, supple 😉 and not bulky it also has ribbed panels under neath the arm and sides which ensure a custom fit. The only con really is its price point, If you’re ready to splurge it’s definitely worth it.
My first miss would be the Caslon Mixed Knit Moto Sweater it’s meant to be a hybrid however it just didn’t work the sweater material didn’t hold its shape and to my surprise the XXL was big. Also the gray ends up looking like a towel. It’s one of those pieces where the concept sounds great but the execution. 
I also ordered the Double Face Jacket by Keneth Cole Details Here
The next miss for me would be the Barefoot Dreams® CozyChic Lite® Circle Cardigan in
Cocoa/ Peatl Heather. Now barefoot dreams has a cult following on social media and I may get canceled for this; however, my issue with the cardigan was not its Insanely incredible softness. 
Because it definitely feels like you are wearing clouds, but rather the color and style. The fabric of the Cardigan was too soft for its intended style so it draped awkwardly. In addition, the color was a grayish brown which didn’t go well with any of my warm toned browns. But honestly guys the insane softness of this Cardigan can literally make you forget all that. The HYPE is real!!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Best Tops

 If I had to pick one top it would be the Plaid top from BP because it fit around my Hips well, it was kinda slouchy and long enough to be worn as a tunic or tucked in.
Finally, I also thought you should know that none of my tops were from the Plus Size section (which tends to be pricier). If you are in between a 16 and 18 you aren’t completely restricted to Plus. So explore a little.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Accessories

I only picked up 2 items from this section. I wanted a two toned Watch I picked up this one (under $100) love the shape and its woven band, it’s versatile so it will be easy to mix and match. 
Finally, I also picked up this Madewell tote its all leather superrrrrr versatile. As you can see from the video. The gray stripe going across just adds a very now/ sporty /edgy element and I am here for it. It has the makings of a piece that will wear well over time.

These are my favorite things from the haul, I realized that I didn’t stock up on my cardigans so I’ll definately be on the look out for those.
