Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-On's

My 50+ 60+ try-on’s from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! And it’s just in time for public access. If you haven’t shopped the sale yet or have been waiting for this post to shop, get excited! This year’s selection has been the best I’ve seen and I’m sharing all my amazing finds with you. If items are sold out in your size, check back religiously because restocks and returns happen often. I should probably say, I’m not keeping everything in this post. Instead of going in-store to try everything on, I like to do in at home. I always order way more than I intend to keep. If I think you’ll love something I try to order it and give my honest feedback to help you out and make the shopping experience easier. If you have any questions about how something fits, etc., shoot me an email, leave a comment, or DM me on Instagram. I’m happy to help you guys. Alright, without further ado, enjoy my 60+ try-on’!


Socialite button front top 1
Socialite button front top 2

Socialite Button Front Top xs – I spotted this top on another blogger and fell in love with the buttons. Not something I would have gravitated toward online or in-store – seems like just a basic white top. But, I actually love it! The jersey material is so soft and comfortable. It does fit more form fitting, so you may want to size up if that’s not your thing. The neckline also sits a little low, if you’re smaller busted, it shouldn’t be an issue. Can be worn half tucked or fully tucked for a bodysuit vibe. It’s also nursing-friendly!

Halogen short sleeve tunic 2
Halogen short sleeve tunic 1

Halogen V-Neck Tunic Tee petite xxs – This tee is so soft and comfortable! The jersey material is flattering and drapes really nicely. It’s also on the thicker side for tees, so not see-through. It runs long enough to cover your bum if you wanted to wear it with leggings, too. One of my favorite basics from the sale!

BP striped v neck tee

BP. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee stripe xxs – This tee comes in an assortment of different colors. While the material is quite thin, the fit is really nice. It’s tighter around the bust and drapes perfectly around the mid section. I could have easily sized up to an xs, but the neckline runs a little low for my liking (not a fan of my big beast feeding boobs peaking out, lol). A great budget-friendly basic that can be worn many ways.

BP v neck tee

BP. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee xxs – This is the same tee as above, but in white. Fits exactly the same, the only difference, it’s pretty sheer. Sheer, thin, and white – probably not the best combination. You can see every little thing.

Caslon white tee

Caslon Rounded V-Neck Tee xs – I bought this tee last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they brought it back this year! It’s one of my favorite tees! At the time I was pregnant, so I ordered a regular xs instead of petite xs. I do like the fit of this one, perfectly oversized, but I could easily wear a petite xs. The neckline sits at just the right spot and although it’s semi-sheer, a nude bra does the trick. It comes in an assortment of different colors.

Caslon thermal

Caslon Thermal Henley Top petite xxs – I’ve noticed thermal tees popping up everywhere, lately. This one is SO soft and comfortable. It does run oversized, though. This is the petite xxs and it’s still quite large in the shoulders and arms. With that being said, I love that it can be worn at home to lounge around it, but you can pair it with jeans and flats to run out of the house. Added bonus, it’s nursing-friendly!

Caslon Stripe Bell Sleeve Tee petite xxs – This tee was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year and they brought it back. Last year’s black and white version was more black dominate, if that makes sense. This year’s version is more white dominate in person. It also seems thinner this year, which for some reason makes the shirt drape funky. It’s extremely stretchy – not necessarily going to stretch out, but again just sits weird. I wonder if I went up a size, if that would have helped. The bell sleeves are also quite large and long.

Socialite henley thermal gray 1
Socialite henley thermal rose

Socialite Thermal Henley Top xs – Another cute thermal tee! This one has a feminine fit and it’s SO soft and cozy. Can be worn with jeans or shorts or even at home to lounge around in. It’s one of those pieces that you can wake up in, throw on some jeans and flats and run out the door for errands or lunch.

BP long sleeve striped tee

BP. Raw Edge Scoop Neck Tee Striped  – This is the same tee as the 2 BP. short sleeved tees above, but with a more round neck and long sleeves. It form fitting around the bust and arms and loose around the mid section. I happen to like this neckline better (less v-neck and more round). Keep in mind the white stripe is more of a cream.


BP. Textured Stich V-Neck Pullover xs – I just love this top! There’s something about it that makes it so effortless and more elevated than a basic tee.  I love the way it fits, too. Fitted, but drapes perfectly. The scoop neck sits in just the right spot. Ugh, I can’t wait for the weather to get a little cooler (we’re in the middle of a heat wave), I can’t wait to wear all these long sleeve tops. I would wear this with denim cut offs now and pair it with denim or joggers in the fall. This comes in 4 other colors.


Hinge lace top 1
Hinge lace top 2

Hinge Puff Sleeve Lace Top xs – While shopping the sale online, I spotted this, but didn’t put it in my cart because I wasn’t sure how it would look around the bust (I thought it was going to be too tight). I saw another blogger wearing it and fell in love. Isn’t it funny how seeing pieces on, makes such a big difference. It’s so pretty and flattering. This is a Nordstrom sale piece that you can easily wear now and later.

Vince camuto blouse 1
Vince camuto blouse 2

Vince Camuto Smocked Neck Blouse xxs- I ordered a few blouses this year because a lot of you asked for workwear options. This Vince Camuto top is so pretty and I love the little details. The high neck is stretchy, so not uncomfortable.  The arms do run a bit long on me, but they look fine rolled up a bit. This top is not sheer in this pink color (although, needed some steaming, oops). If you’re looking for fun workwear, this is a great option.  You can also easily wear this to drinks with the girls, too!

Hinge mix print top

Hinge Mix Print Top xxs – Here’s another fun blouse option. The color is perfect for fall. The fit is spot on and it’s versatile. Wear it to the office, happy hour, or dress it down with jeans and flats. It would look great with pumps or heeled booties, too. The material looks nice even with a few wrinkles, which is always a bonus!


Halogen cashmere turtleneck 1
Halogen cashmere turtleneck 2

Halogen Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater petite xxs – This sweater is SO soft! And the fit is spot on. Fitted along the shoulders and even arm length, but still oversized and comfortable. The cream color is beautiful and I love the large turtleneck. Great quality and a staple in the fall!

Caslon turtleneck 1
Caslon turtleneck 2

Caslon Roll Neck Wool Blend Sweater petite xxs – I’m always a huge fan of anything speckled. This sweater is on the thin side, so great for layering. The petite xxs fits well and it’s not itchy. I love the slit in the back, it’s an nice added touch. This comes in 4 other colors – love the black one too!

Free People sweater 1
Free People sweater 2

Free People Found My Friend Sweater xs – Free People typically runs large on me, but it’s not the case with this sweater. It has a nice oversized fit, but I don’t feel like I’m swimming in it. This cream color is more cream yellow in person. The neck runs wide, so you could easily wear it off the shoulder. It’s also a little cropped, so definitely a piece you’ll want to wear with high waisted jeans or shorts. This sweater comes in 5 other colors – the light blue is so pretty!

Halogen ruffle neck turtleneck 2
Halogen ruffle neck turtleneck 1

Halogen Ruffle Neck Sweater petite xxs – This is one of my favorite sweaters from the sale. The petite xxs fits like a glove – I love the billowy sleeves and ruffle detail on the neck. It has a good stretch to it, but not to the point where it will stretch out. It’s lightweight and perfect for layering. I could see myself reaching for this all fall and winter.

Caslon textured sweater

Caslon Loop Stitch Crewneck Sweater xs – Another one of my favorite sweater finds. Because it looked so boxy online, I ended up ordering a regular xs, but it’s slightly large (although still boxy). I have to exchange it for a petite xs or petite xxs (I haven’t decided yet). I just love the texture on this one! It’s one of those pieces that doesn’t look special on the rack, but once you put it on, it’s so pretty. It’s lightweight and not itchy at all. Downside – it says it’s hand wash only.

Caslon tunic 1
Caslon tunic 2

Caslon High/Low Tunic petite xxs – I love finding these tunics during the sale (found a couple last year as well). If you’re a mom or just love easy simple pieces, this is for you! It’s long enough to cover the bum and SO soft and comfortable. It looks great paired with leggings and fun flats (like the leopard ones I bought). Chic and elevated, but comfortable and easy to run out of the house in. These do fit oversized, but I think that’s the look, so I’m not sure if I would size down. I also love that you can easily tuck it in to jeans as well.


Halogen cashmere cardigan

Halogen Drape Cardigan petite xxs – This is my favorite cardigan from the sale! The cashmere is so soft and the quality is great. It seems to be the shortest cardigan of the bunch, which was a game changer for me. All the other petite cardigans are still slightly long on me. This one drapes beautifully and I love this brown color for fall. The reviews mention this cardigan runs big, but I don’t think it does… I’m wondering if people are mistaking the drape style as oversized? It comes in charcoal, black, and a green color.

dolman cardigan 2
dolman cardigan 1

Leith Dolman Sleeve Cardigan xs – I don’t normally gravitate toward dolman cardigans, but I fell in love with this color and had to try it on. I don’t know if I love the style on me, but I think it’s a great piece to throw on to run out of the house in the summer and fall. It’s a nice layering piece that instantly makes you look pulled together. Pair it with skinny jeans, cute flats, and a statement handbag and you look chic without sacrificing comfort.

Halogen blouson cardigan 1
Halogen blouson cardigan 2

Halogen Blouson Sleeve Cashmere Cardigan petite xxs – Can you tell I’m loving this color this year? This cardigan is so pretty and well made. I actually really love the blouson sleeves and the ribbed texture. It runs a little long for my liking (have to be careful with length when you’re petite otherwise you look short), but I think I could easily wear it with heeled booties or pumps. A must-have from the sale in my opinion!

Halogen ribbed cardigan cream 2
Halogen ribbed cardigan cream 1

Halogen ribbed cardigan gray

Halogen Open Front Cardigan petite xxs – I bought several of these cardigans last Anniversary Sale and it appears this year’s version is a little longer, which is no bueno for petites. Anything past the knee, is getting too long and becomes unflattering. You’re also paying for what you get. My sweaters started peeling after a couple wears, which is a bummer. With that being said, of all the Halogen cardigans this one is the most affordable.


Rag & Bone dark wash skinny jeans 1
Rag & Bone dark wash skinny jeans 2

Rag & Bone Ankle Skinny Jeans 24 – I spotted these in-store and had to give them a try. One of my biggest things I look for in denim, aside from the way they feel on, is the leg opening size. I hate skinny jeans that aren’t tight around the ankle – it’s unflattering to say the least. These looked skinny on the rack and they did not disappoint after trying them on. I would say they run TTS, although a little snug at first. They do stretch over time, so I wouldn’t size up. The dark wash is classic and flattering and will be a go-to color in the fall and winter. They’re darker in person than online, which I happen to like. Rag & Bone are one of my favorite denim brands and these are really nice! Super comfortable and flattering.

Rag & Bone black skinny jeans 2
Rag & Bone black skinny jeans 1

Rag & Bone Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans 24 – These have the same fit and comfort level as the jeans above. The only difference is the raw hem. The color is a true dark black and the only downside, they collect lint. This seems to happen with any true black jean. I love the way they’re form fitting along the legs from bum to ankle. With both jeans the hems run long on me (I have them rolled maybe 4 inches), but both can easily be hemmed or cut to hit right at the ankle. If you’re investing in denim during this sale, I would highly recommend both of these Rag & Bone jeans.

Kut from the Kloth Distressed skinny jeans 1
Kut from the Kloth Distressed skinny jeans 2

Kut from the Kloth Connie Step Hem Skinny Jeans petite 00 – Kut from the Kloth is my favorite petite denim brand. I discovered them last Anniversary sale and I was so excited to see so many styles on sale this year. These fit so well, I could cry. This never happens, lol. The step hem is fun and different and the light distressing is perfect. They’re more a medium to dark wash with fading along the thigh. I will probably only wear these with flats as the cropped length looks a little funny with heels. Not complaining though because I can never find jeans that fit this well at this length. This brand tends to run tight along the legs and comfortable to loose around the waist. I wouldn’t size down in these, but just something to note.

Kut from the Kloth skinny jeans 1
Kut from the Kloth skinny jeans 2

Kut from the Kloth Donna Ankle Skinny Jeans petite 00 – I didn’t have high hopes for these after trying on the pair above. I was so excited about the distressed step hem, I was okay with everything else not fitting. Well I put these on and fell in love as well. They’re more high waisted than the above pair and hit me right at the ankle. They’re so flattering and really make my legs look long. They’re comfortable, tight along the legs, and can be worn with flats or heels. I’m honestly in shock at how well these jeans fit. If you’re petite, I would highly recommend checking out this brand.

Kut from the Kloth gray jeans 1
Kut from the Kloth gray jeans 2


Kut from the Kloth Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans petite 00 – Since I love this brand so much, I thought I’d try these blackish/gray pair as well. And of course, they fit amazing. High waisted, tight around the ankle, raw hem, and just all around flattering. And since they’re not a true black color, they aren’t a lint magnet.

Kut from the Kloth straight jeans 1

Kut from the Kloth Reese Ankle Straight Leg Jeans petite 00 – I really love the way these look in person, but for some reason they don’t look as flattering on in photos. Which ultimately may mean they don’t look as good on as I think, lol. They’re a nice light wash and although it says they’re a straight leg, I want to say they’re more skinny without the tapered leg.  They’re more straight from the knee to the ankle, if that makes sense. I think these would look better if I was taller or if the hem was cut just a tad for a cropped look. I always have high hopes for light wash denim, but a flattering pair on my petite frame is harder to find than I realize. Still, a good pair of affordable jeans.


Nike leggings

Nike Speed Cool Running Tights xs – I didn’t have any expectations with these Nike leggings and I was pleasantly surprised! They’re one of my favorite finds from the sale! Just the fact that they’re petite-friendly is everything. They’re also just flattering in general. Really slimming, but not overly tight and uncomfortable. These will be great to workout in and to wear with my other athleisure pieces.

Zella gray leggings 1
Zella gray leggings 2

Zella Live In Ombre Midi Leggings xs – Zella midi leggings are my absolute favorite (I have about 5 pairs) and I was so excited to see this gray pair on sale. I haven’t been able to find a gray pair of leggings that are flattering and comfortable. I hit the jackpot with these! They hit me right at the ankle, comfortable, soft, and don’t make my legs look like sausages, lol. They don’t say they’re high waisted, but they come up pretty high on me, which I happen to like. Sucks everything in! So, so happy with these!

Alo leggings 2
Alo leggings

Alo High Waist Airbrush Midi Leggings xs – I’ve had these Alo leggings since this past winter and was excited to see them part of the sale. These are my first Alo midi leggings and they do run smaller than Zella. The xs Alo fits more like the xxs Zella (just for reference). They have a sheen to them, almost giving them a leather look. They’re quite thick with a high waist, sucking you in in all the right places – very flattering!

Nike Rally pullover 1
Nike Rally pullover 2

Nike Rally Sweatshirt xs – I have several rally sweatshirts and pullovers and I’ve been obsessed with all of them. This pullover is no different. If you’re looking for more elevated athleisure pieces, I highly recommend getting this! It’s just so chic. It’s more on the cropped side, so looks great tucked in. I also love the high neck. It comes in white, black, and gray. I want them all!

Zella distressed leggings 1
Zella distressed leggings 2

Zella Vixen High Waist Midi Leggings xs – I’ve loved all my Zella midi leggings, so I thought I would try this fun option. The fit is great and they feel nice on the skin, but the slits don’t land on my knee, so they’re a little awkward. If you’re looking for no-to-basic black leggings, these are a great option. Just need to be at least 5’2″.

Nike tank

Nike Essential Logo Tank s – I’ve been needing new work out tanks and ordered this in both the black and white. I actually sized up to a small and I’m so glad I did because I love the fit. It’s loose enough to be comfortable, but not too oversized. It also drapes nicely. Highly recommend these!


Honeydew star sweatshirt 2
Honeydew star sweatshirt 1

Honeydew Intimates Burnout Lounge Sweatshirt xs – Spotted this sweatshirt and thought it would be a comfy piece for around the house. I love the fit and the way it drapes. It’s not a heavy duty sweatshirt, rather lightweight and perfect for summer. The xs fits perfectly oversized.

Topshop pink pullover 2
Topshop pink pullover 1

Topshop Longline sweatshirt US2 – Pink sweatshirts are my weakness, lol. Not a big fan of longline sweatshirts, but I couldn’t resist this color. The US 2 fits comfortable and oversized, but I’m not swimming it in, which is nice. The longer length is actually nice because it covers the bum, but you can also do a half tuck, too.  It’s one of those sweatshirts that you can lounge around in at home, but also wear with athleisure pieces as well.

BP hoodie 2
BP hoodie 1

BP. Zip Front Hoodie xxs – Picked this up in case anyone was looking for easy basics. This hoodie is very thin and long. It’s more of a light layer for summer (don’t buy it for warmth). While the xxs fits, its quite oversized. I would recommend sizing down.

Alternative hoodie brown 1
Alternative hoodie brown 2

Alternative Cozy Pullover Hoodie xs – I ordered this in the brown color as well as the ivory. The description says it’s cozy, but I wouldn’t really describe it that way. It’s soft and comfortable, but not cozy, lol. Also be sure to size up. I’m wearing an xs and it’s very fitted. I would consider this a more elevated hoodie with a feminine fit. Another great piece for athleisure style!

Zella sweater hoodie 1
Zella sweater hoodie 2

Zella Cashmere and Wool Hoodie xs – As you can see, this hoodie runs big. But, it’s beautiful! I love the ribbed details and the cashmere is soft and cozy. This is another one of those pieces that can be worn many different ways – Pair it with skinny jeans and flats, leggings and sneakers, or joggers and house slippers. I wish this came in an xxs. Be sure to size down!

Topshop pj set 1

Topshop Cupro PJ Set (top and bottoms) s – Another instance where I fell in love with the color. And what’s even better, this set is so soft, comfortable, and feels great against the skin. The smallest size for both the top and bottoms was a small, so yes, this is oversized, but it’s perfect to lounge around in. I would say the top is more fitting than the bottoms. I have the shorts rolled once.

eberjey pj set

Eberjey Gisele Short Pajamas xs – These are so soft and fits like a glove. The shorts are tiny, but still work (I don’t know how, lol). I will be living/lounging/sleeping in this set all summer. SO GOOD!

Outerwear / Jackets

Bernardo petite puffer jacket 2
Bernardo petite puffer jacket 1

Bernardo Microtouch Pillow Down & Feather Fill Jacket petite xs – Aaaahh, another Bernardo jacket! If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love Bernardo jackets. Best fitting puffer jackets I’ve been able to find. This is a new style I don’t have yet and it doesn’t disappoint. This might my favorite length (not short and not long) and I love the large funnel neck (it’s like you don’t need to wear a scarf with this one). Bernardo has a very feminine fit, which is what I love so much bout these jackets. I wear these from fall to spring. They’re SO good!

Caslon utility jacket 2
Caslon utility jacket 1

Caslon Utility Jacket petite xxs – I wanted to love this anorak so bad, but it just doesn’t work for me. The petite xxs is still way too oversized and it’s too thin (not lined and paper thin). I love the style and look of it, though :(.

Topshop leather jacket 2
Topshop leather jacket 1

Topshop Dolly Leather Biker Jacket petite 0p – I’ve mentioned this several times (on Stories and Instagram), but this might be my favorite purchase from any Nordstrom sale. You don’t find petite leather jackets often, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw this one. The leather is soft and the style is classic. The petite 0 fits like a glove. Just the fact that I won’t be doing any alterations is everything. A timeless piece that I will wear for years!

Halogen trench coa 2
Halogen trench coat 1

Halogen Tie Sleeve Trench Coat petite xxs – Nordstrom petite outerwear can be hit or miss and sadly this was a miss. If you’re going to make petite sizes, why not have them fit? I’m so confused. I would size down at least 2 sizes on this bad boy. The color is also a very rich tan – not my favorite. Good idea, but just missed the mark.

Halogen plaid trench 2
Halogen plaid trench 1

Halogen Lightweight Plaid Trench Coat petite xxs – Another petite jacket that fits way too oversized. I actually really love this trench – the style and print. I really wished this would have fit. It’s perfect for fall and has some good weight to it (fully lined). I would size down 1-2 sizes on this one.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Reefer coat 1
Lauren by Ralph Lauren Reefer coat

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Wool Blend Reefer Coat petite 0 – I’ve seen this coat over the years in many colors, but had yet to try it on until now. I always just assumed it wouldn’t fit. I’m happy to report, it runs TTS! The arms aren’t as tailored as petite sizing at J.Crew, but it works. This is the pebble color and it’s way darker in person than it shows online. A great menswear inspired jacket for fall and winter!

Caslon shearling jacket 1
Caslon shearling jacket 2

Caslon Faux Shearling Jacket petite xxs – I was thrilled to see this shearling jacket came in petite sizes because they NEVER do! This jacket is so soft and cozy. It fits perfectly oversized and feels like you’re wearing a blanket. The material is more piece-y in person than it shows online. It’s also fairly lightweight and thin – so not a winter coat by any means. I’m obsessed!!!

J.Crew gray blazer 1
J.Crew gray blazer 2

J.Crew Dover Blazer petite 0 – J.Crew has always been my go-to when it comes to blazer and this one doesn’t disappoint. I used to order petite 00 in their blazers, but recently wanted my blazers to have a comfier fit, so I sized up one size. Although this has a very business feel and look to it, you can easily dress it down with skinny jeans, a tee, and flats. Great quality and amazing fit. If you’re looking for structured blazers, J.Crew is the way to go.

Halogen plaid blazer 1
Halogen plaid blazer 2

Halogen Double Breasted Blazer petite xxs – I tried several plaid blazers last fall and nothing stuck. When I saw this one in the Catalog I had to give it a shot. I love the menswear inspired look and the longer length. It fits perfectly oversized without looking like it’s too big – love this for layering! It is fully lined, but lightweight. I wish the arms were a little more tailored, but that’s probably me just being picky.

Halogen boucle coat 1
Halogen boucle coat 2

Halogen Boucle Coat petite xxs – I love this coat so much! The petite xxs fits oversized, but since it fits with the style of coat, it works. I used to be such a stickler for tailored, well fitting coats, but I think I’m embracing the oversized styles (if done right). The texture on this one is so good. I’m going to regret saying this, but can it be fall already, lol. If you’re not that into oversized coats, you could easily size down.


Jeffrey Campbell sock bootie 2
Jeffrey Campbell sock bootie 1

Jeffrey Coma Stretch Bootie 5 – These had been on my wishlist since last winter. I have so many neutral coats and was looking for a tan bootie and these were the only cute ones I could find. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw they were part of the sale. They run TTS and seem comfortable so far. I received some questions on Stories on how to style these and I would pair them with cropped jeans. The shaft is fairly tall, so if you wear them over skinny jeans, they will cut off your legs, making you look shorter than you are. I’m so excited to pair these with cropped jeans and neutral sweaters, turtlenecks, and outerwear!

Vince mules 1

Vince Alora Mule 5 – I had been looking for a pair of mules like these for what seems like forever. When I spotted them in the Catalog I knew I had to have them. While they’re gorgeous in person and the perfect nude color, the heel is so high (at least 4″). I don’t know if this new mama has it in her to wear such high heels, lol. Aside from the high heel, I tried them on with several outfits and they don’t seem flattering on me… I don’t know what it is. Maybe too chunky for my petite frame? I’m still debating on whether or not I should keep them… they’re really beautiful in person and just so classic.

Marc Fisher moto booties 1
Marc Fisher moto booties 2

Marc Fisher Warid Moto Boots 5 – I wouldn’t normally gravitate toward a moto boot like this, but I wear boots a lot in the fall and winter and I thought I would try a new style. These are actually really chic. After styling them, I would say they’re a little chunky on my short legs, but a reader actually suggested I swap the white laces out for the black ones to see if they look a little more sleek (they come with black laces as well). I tried the black laces and they do make the shoes more sleek, but I’m still just not sure if I’m a chunky sole kinda gal. I’m sure I’ll try these on on Stories more to get your feedback. Stay tuned!

Soludos espadrilles 1

Soludos espadrilles 2

Soludos Espadrille Loafers 5 – I have at least 5 pairs of Soludos espadrilles and I definitely didn’t need another pair, but I couldn’t resist the color. It says they’re blush online, but I would say they’re more of nude beige. AKA skin color which makes them really flattering. These espadrilles run tight at first, but do stretch out over time with more wears. I’ve always taken my normal size and every pair has stretched out to be really comfortable. I like these espadrilles as an alternative to sandals – they look great with shorts, dresses, and jeans.

Charles by Charles David pumps

Charles by Charles David Maxx Pointy Toe Pump 4.5 – I’ve actually had these pumps for a couple years now. I originally had them in my normal size 5, but exchanged them for a 4.5. For some reason I always have to size down when it comes to pumps. But in general, I would say these run TTS. They’re your basic nude pump. They do have a 4″ heel, so keep that in mind. Before baby, a 4″ heel didn’t bother me if the shoes were somewhat comfortable. Now, I don’t really love a 4″ heel, but I like having them in my closet for any occasion that might come up. For less than $65, these can’t be beat!

Sarto by Franco Sarto leopard loafers 1
Sarto by Franco Sarto leopard loafers 2

Sarto by Franco Sarto Genuine Calf Hair Topaz Flat 5 – I’m so mad at myself for not ordering a smaller size when they were actually available. Of course the 4 and 4.5 are sold out now. I have the size 5 and they’re huge. I’m a small size 5, so I would say size down at least a half size. Leopard print shoes can be hit or miss and the material and print on these are chic and elevated. They’re lightweight and not too narrow toward the toe making them fairly comfortable from what I can tell so far. These are a fall staple! Pair them with skinny jeans, sweaters, and cardigans.

Halogen nude flats

Halogen Sadie Slingback Flat 5 – Okay, I love these! I didn’t know what to expect when I ordered these. They don’t look that great online, but I’m obsessed. I’ve already worn them a ton. They’re comfortable, run TTS, and go with everything! They’re just so flattering and easy to wear. I think I need them in black as well. If you’re at all in need of a nude flat (who isn’t?), these are such a great find at a great price.

Donald Pliner booties 1
Donald Pliner booties 2

Donald Pliner Dante Bootie 5 – I didn’t find a ton of ankle booties that I loved this year. It took me several looks before I found these. I love the shape of these boots and the almond toe. I have bunch of pointed toe black booties, but don’t have any with this almond shape. They’re classic, but edgy at the same time. The smooth leather gives them an elevated look. They run TTS, although the toe runs narrow. If you have wide feet, you may want to size up. The leather is a little stiff right now, but I have a feeling will soften over time.

Steve Madden sock bootie 1
Steve Madden sock bootie 2

Steve Madden Reece Sock Bootie 5 – These are my favorite boot purchase from the sale! The Loeffler Randall boots from last year were on my wishlist and these are very similar for a fraction of the price. Steve Madden has been hit and miss with me in terms of comfort and I must say, I’m surprised at how comfortable these are. The heel height is perfect too. At just 3 1/2″ they’re comfortable, but still flattering. I will be wearing these to death once the weather cools down. Sock booties or any bootie with a longer shaft tends to pair best with cropped jeans (flare or straight). I’m not a huge fan of wearing these over skinny jeans, but that’s just my opinion. These run TTS and are a sale must-have!

Sole Society loafers 1

Sole Society Talbia Loafer 5 – I had such high hopes for these. I spotted them styled multiple times in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog and had to have them! Unfortunately, they’re too big :(. I don’t know if Sole Society runs big or if it’s just these, but I would size down. Because they’re so big, I can’t tell if they’re comfortable or not. The leather seems pretty thin, but could soften after multiple wears. If you’re bigger than a size 5, I would give these a try, but size down. The cream color is a nice neutral for fall and winter and I love the studs!

Leith Finn Sock Bootie 5 – I have been wanting a pointed stiletto bootie like this forever. I bought a pair last winter from Zara, but they didn’t make the cut. These are comfortable, fit TTS, and really affordable. The sock trend will continue into fall 2018 and I love the varsity take on these. The 3 1/2″ heel is also really comfortable and easy to walk around in. If you’re looking for a more dressed up bootie, these are a great deal!

Nike sneakers

Nike Presto Fly Sneakers 5.5 – I had been eyeing these in nude for a couple of months, so when I saw the black ones on sale, I had to get them! You all know how much I love my Nike sneakers. These are so comfortable. I sized up a half size because I want to wear these to workout and need a little more room. I like that these are functional for working out, but can also be worn with athleisure looks. You can’t go wrong with black sneakers and these are chic!
