Gray Utility Vest
Happy Friday Loves! I am sharing another one of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds, this cozy gray utility vest. For winter and fall, you can pair this vest with a long sleeve tee or dress. For late summer or early fall, I love how it looks paired with another sleeveless top like my favorite strappy cami or even a sleeveless dress would be cute.
This vest is made of the softest sweatshirt fleece material. I love the pocket heavy utility look to this vest. It gives it a more structured look in contrast to the softer material. The dark gray is so gorgeous too. I love pairing dark gray with jewel tones like maroon, purple, and navy.
If you want to see more great finds from the sale, I recently updated Anniversary Sale page with hopefully still in stock items! Alright ya’ll, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Floral Cold Shoulder Blouse + Link Up
Late last week, my first round of purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale arrived and of course I couldn’t wait to start sharing all the cute outfits. So get ready for some fall outfit inspiration over the next couple of weeks! I wanted to share now while they are still on sale, and hopefully still available. Seriously the items in this sale are going so fast! I’m still waiting for these jeans to come back in my size so I can buy them.
I have a few favorite tops from my purchases, but this one may be my favorite and it’s only $32! You know I love pretty much anything that comes in burgundy, and the color is just gorgeous for fall. I really like the cold shoulder, high neck, and baby doll design of this top. Lots of things going on, but they work so well together. The top is comfortable and lightweight which is nice for our warmer fall days. I love the length perfect with skinny jeans.
Speaking of skinny jeans, these are only $39!!! They sold out during early access and made a brief appearance day 1 of public access. The denim is a little thinner than my $100+ pairs, but they fit really well and are comfortable. I did go down one size compared to what I normally buy. I have heard good things about this brand, so I am excited to give these a try.
Last but not least, my gorgeous peep toe booties. My only shoe purchase this year, and I am so happy with it. These come in three colors, but I was really drawn to this grayer shade. I don’t own any other shoe in this color, and I think it’s going to pair great with fall jewel tones and all of my more neutral faves like black and beige.
For the fit on these, I ordered my regular size. I contemplated if I should go up a half size, but I decided to stick with these in hopes they stretch because they are not super tight. The main area of concern for me is the portion that goes over the toes. When I was walking around shooting photos in them, I didn’t really notice any tightness, so I think it was a good decision.
Have you shopped the sale? What has been your favorite item so far?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Dressing Room Diaries
Happy Friday!! Alright ya’ll, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is officially open to the public! I hit up my local store a couple times this week, and I thought it would be fun to take you guys shopping with me. Even though I purchase most online, I still love to go in store and see things up close and personal. I always find items that I totally skimmed over online and end up loving!
My store was already slim pickings on sizes for some things. My plan for this is to grab the next size to see if I like the overall look and fit and then order online. I’m sharing the sizes I am wearing in the photos, and how I felt about the fit of each for you. For a few pieces, I’m also sharing a few thoughts and opinions.
I hope ya’ll enjoy my dressing room diaries and Happy Nordstrom Sale Shopping!
Off the Shoulder Plaid Top (Size M / Fit I’d prefer a Small) | Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
IN LOVE with this top! It’s so soft and very easy to move in for an off the shoulder style. The fit was a little big, but it still held up on my shoulders.
I was considering a black pair from this jean brand, so I tried these on just for fit and fell in love! They are comfy but still super skinny.
Burgundy Cold Shoulder Tunic Sweater (Size S / Fit Runs Big) |Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
This sweater is so cute and cozy, but definitely runs really big!! It also comes in black.
Black Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweater (Size S / Fit TTS)
A lightweight sweater perfect for early winter/late fall. Also comes in a light purple.
** Top Seller of the Sale** Long Maroon Cardigan (Size XS / Fit I went down a size to XS)
I had to stop myself from buying all the colors, love this cardigan! It’s been a popular and quick seller.
Gray Ruffle Sleeveless Blouse (Size S / Fit TTS)
Black Cold Shoulder Blouse (Size M / Fit A little bulky in the middle might order a S) | Suede Mini Skirt (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
This skirt is the most fabulous thing I tried on. It fit like a glove.
Plaid Tunic (Size S / Fit TTS but VERY long) | Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
This plaid has a super cute floral print mixed in on the sleeves and back, but it was just WAY too long for me.
Striped Off the Shoulder Button Down Top (Size M / Fit No give in the off the shoulder portion, and M was a little tight and L too big)
This top will either fit or it won’t. I found the medium to be a bit too snug, and the L was too big on my arms.
White Lace Dress ( Size S / Fit TTS, but not meant for a petite 5’3 gal – too long)
Purple Off the Shoulder Top (Size S / Fit TTS)
Ok, I think this top is so much prettier in person. It’s a gorgeous satin material with a great loose fit.
Long Beige Duster Cardigan (Size XS / Fit I sized down to XS) | Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
Soft, Warm and Cozy, all the things a cardigan should be.
Plaid Fit and Flare Dress (Size 4 / Fit TTS)
I liked the overall fit and look of this dress, but it had some odd darting on the drop waist portion that just was off on me.
Black Cold Shoulder Blouse (Size M / Fit a little bulky in the middle might order a S) | Maroon Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
This jean brand can do no wrong, and these jeans are a testament to that. Perfect fit and gorgeous color.
Cardigan (Size S / Fit TTS) | Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
I grabbed this cardigan without looking at the price tag…. It’s really cute, high quality, and comfy, but not worth the $100 tag in my opinion.
Floral Work Dress (Size XS / Fit I sized down to XS)
Yellow Striped Tee (Size S / Fit TTS) | Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
I want all the colors of this tee!! Love the fit of it. I was worried it would be see through, but I didn’t notice my bra in this lighter shade. You can see the darker jean color peeking through though. I might also buy the scoopneck version.
Black Turtleneck Blouse (Size M / Fit Runs Big – I think I need an XS) | Suede Skirt (Size 27 / Fit TTS)
Oh did I mention the skirt has pockets!!!!
There you go, a tiny peek into my shopping trip at Nordstrom. I had a few misses including this jacket which was WAY too big. I tried on the XS and it swallowed me. Also, these jeans were cute but the fit was just a tad unflattering on me and too long maybe if I went down one size. This sweater was a huge NO! The extra long sleeves were just too much for me.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed this post. As I mentioned yesterday, it’s way different than my normal posts, but I thought it would be really fun to share the shopping side and not just the end result of pretty outfit idea pictures. You can see more of my favorite pics over on my Nordstrom Sale page.
Green and Blue Striped Midi Dress
Hello Lovelies! I’m sharing this gorgeous striped midi dress a day earlier than my normal posting schedule because I have something super fun planned for tomorrow’s post. Let’s just say it’s something I have never done here on the blog before and it’s all about the first day of public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. So check back tomorrow for all the excitement.
But today, let’s talk about this green and blue striped stunner. This striped midi dress caught my eye, and I could not stop thinking about it. I love the blue and green color combo and the different shades of green. The way the stripes and colors work together is just so effortless and gorgeous. I felt like this is one of those dresses that is so simple yet still an eye catcher.
It’s the perfect summer work dress and would also be perfect to wear to a bridal or baby shower. I have worn this to work already, and it is also really comfy. I liked that the band across the stomach wasn’t overly tight. I did however realize that this dress works best with a strapless bra. Multiple times throughout the day I had to re-hide my bra straps from peeking out the sides.
For a few different styling ideas, you can add a denim jacket to make this dress more casual or a white blazer for a more professional look.
Alright ya’ll, I will see you back here tomorrow for some Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fun. Thanks for swinging by today!
