17 Items I Bought and Kept from the Nordstrom Sale that are IN-STOCK!


Hey sweet friends and happy weekend to y’all!  I had to get this post up asap because as of tomorrow night at 11:59pm, the Sale ends and all of these wear-now and wear-later pieces will go back to full price and I would hate if you didn’t know that these 17 items are still fully stocked!  I have made 4 different purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (no judgement please, I budget and save for this sale every year!) and I’m actually very surprised that these picks are still available.  A bunch of these items were from my first haul and I thought for sure they would be gone super quick!  I also tend to pick things that a lot of other fashion & style bloggers may not be drawn to.  I think it’s because I strive to go a bit outside the norm box.  Sure, I love a good basic, but at the same time, I get so much enjoyment and inspiration when I can create a unique or interesting look with items that may not be the most popular amongst other bloggers.  And when it comes to Fall, you girls know I struggle with my style!  Again, why can’t bright colors be in all year long?  I need to move to Miami or Charleston!  So I try to find items that still represent my true color-loving’ self while keeping my looks seasonally appropriate.  I’m really excited about these pieces because I think they’re the perfect mix of both – fun and functional!

I’ll now break down each item and share price, sizing info, and outfit inspo!


Mustard Yellow Cold Shoulder Dress – on sale for $30

I bought a Medium in this dress and it definitely runs slightly big!  I never know whether to go with a Small or Medium due to my larger chest.  If this came in a petite, I think that would have been perfect because I wouldn’t have had to adjust the straps so much!

Outfit Idea: this will look fab with booties and a moto jacket for a date night!  Also, if you have a Fall wedding, pair this with closed toe pups and jewel toned jewelry!


Black Ruffle Sleeve Dress with Pockets – on sale for $30

I just ordered this yestarday, so I haven’t had the chance to review the quality, but based on the reviews, people were pleased with the material and fit!  I went with my normal size Small.

Outfit Idea:  I plan to wear this with the sneakers below and a denim jacket or cardigan sweater tied around my waist for an easy breezy, casual look!


Nike Slip-on Sneakers – on sale for $75

I’m a sucker for white tennis shoes and was surprised that these were still available!  This shoe also comes in a tan and black.  I ordered my normal 5.5.

Outfit Idea:  I’ll wear these with the black dress from above!

This is the same one as the black dress above.  There’s something so great about a cute and causal dress that you can throw on and go for errands, happy hour with the girls, or date night with your husband!  Again, I ordered a Small.

Outfit Idea:  Dress it up with peep-toe booties or wedges and add a duster cardigan for those cooler days!
img_5427Black Studded Block Heels – on sale for $99

I was on the fence about these, not going to lie, but after a few of my good blogger friends highly recommend them, and the reviews were positive, I decided to take the plunge!  I have not received them yet, but feel pretty confident about the look and comfort level!  I ordered my normal 5.5!

Outfit Idea:  These will look fabulous with black skinny jeans and a basic white tee; keeping it cool and casual! img_5430

Gray Version

I love a good blush/tan shoe, but realized I have a ton of gray, so I decided to add this gray heel to my Fall lineup!  I ordered my normal 5.5.

Outift Idea:  Pair these with distressed boyfriend jeans and a blush pink top for a feminine look with a slight edge!


Marble Sunnies – on sale for $79

As if I needed another pair of sunnies, I couldn’t resist these!  I think this color combo is perfect for Fall, and with a round face-shape, I think this style will be flattering on my face!

Outfit Idea:  Anything, duh!img_5517Gray Ankle Booties – on sale for $87

I have a similar pair of booties in a dark taupe color from last year and got a tone of use out of them!  I tend to gravitate more towards gray hues, so I couldn’t pass these up!  I ordered my normal 5.5, as I don’t anticipate wearing think socks with these!

Outfit Idea:  Pair these with leggings and a sweater or tunic for Fall!


Floral Dress – on sale for $30

I bought this dress specifically for my Charleston trip and it was the perfect piece for that Summertime humidity!  I ordered a Medium and it was a tiny bit big.

Outfit Idea:  I paired it with my favorite wedges for a day of exploring, but this dress will also be so great with tan booties and a denim jacket for Fall!

img_5522Peep-Toe Booties – on sale for under $100

I’ve been stalking these booties for almost a year now, but didn’t want to pay the $150, so I was beyond happy when I saw they were included in the Sale!  I bought them in the tan color, but they also come in black and this gray/taupe hue.  I ordered a 6 based on the reviews and am happy with that decision!

Outift Idea:  Wear them now with shorts and then in Fall with skinny jeans or leggings and an oversized cream sweater! img_5521

Distressed Jeans – on sale for $53

I swear by this brand of jeans and was thrilled to see a similar pair of jeans from last year’s sale in this year’s lineup!  I size up in this brand, as it always runs small to me.

Outift Idea:  I love them with pointy pumps and peplum tops!


Nude/Taupe Heels – on sale for $74

I LOVE how these look!  They are not the most comfortable heels I own, but for a date night or an evening of chair sitting, they’re perfect!  I always wear a 5.5 in this brand and that’s the size I went with.

Outfit Idea:  I wore these with skinny jeans, cami tank, and lace duster!


Embroidered Dress – on sale for $109

This is a bit pricy but I think I’ll get lots of wear from it during these next few months!  I was torn between a Small and Medium and ended up going with a Small based on reviews.

Outfit Idea:  This will be SO cute with tan booties and a denim jacket!

img_5515Peep-Toe Booties – on sale for $73

During last year’s sale, they had a gray version of this bootie and it was one of my favorite grabs, so when I saw this year’s version in this pretty brown color, I knew I had to get it!  Last year I bought a 5.5 and found it to be snug, so this year I bought a 6, but it was actually too big, so I swapped it out for a 5.5 and the fit is perfect!

Outfit Idea:  I love peep-toe booties with floral dresses and a utility vest!  That makes for the perfect transitional look for Summer to Fall!


Black & Gold Watch – on sale for $150

I’ve been wanting a black-face watch for years now but definitely didn’t want to pay full price, so I was super excited to see this watch on sale!  I think the color accents are perfect for me and my style and the black will be a great addition to my Fall accessories!

Outfit Idea:  I can’t wait to pair this watch with all of my favorite Sabby Style bracelet sets – 10 colors & 30 stamp options!  Plus 10% off with code sabbystyle10!


Floral Wrap Tunic – on sale for $50

I was the most excited about this top because I love florals and thought of so many ways to wear this!  I will say, it’s been a bit tricky figuring out how to wear it while being busty, so keep that in mind if you are bigger chested like myself.  I ordered a Medium at first and it was too big, but the Small is a bit too small around the bust.  I’m torn as to whether I should return again for the Medium and make it work!

Outfit Idea:  This would look SO cute with cutoff shorts and wedges now and then skinny jeans, heels and a moto jacket come Fall!


Fleece Tie Sweatshirt – on sale for $40

I can’t ever say no to a cozy basic, so I jumped at the chance to get this when it came back in stock!  It comes in a few other colors, too!  I ordered a size Small.

Outfit Idea:  I’ll be wearing this with cutoff shorts & booties now and with jeans in Fall!

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope you have an amazing weekend!
