Happy Nordstrom Anniversary sale!
This post will be quick since I’m headed out of town but last night I was trying on some of my purchases and wanted to share now that the sale is open to everyone.
What I’m Wearing
I actually really love this top by Halogen. The problem is I want it in the next size up and it’s sold out! So for now, I’m going to keep it. This top is a round neck, thicker cotton pullover with lace details and a cold shoulder. Since it doesn’t even show up online now, try this one instead. It’s also a cold shoulder, but with a ruffle instead of lace. Plus a great price!
The jeans are a high rise pair in a dark wash by Rag & Bone. The material is actually something they’ve called “tech” for its mix of fabrics that create the softness. I’m on the fence about this pair because they are actually quite high in the waist for me so I don’t always feel it’s flattering with certain tops because you can see some of the jeans through them. They are really soft though and have a unfinished hem. I have them tucked under because they’re so long, by the way. They run true to size.
My shoes in the all pics are these Toms booties in a gray. They’re really comfortable and perfect for the gray pair I’ve been wanting since last Fall/Winter. However, they ran big. Like a half size so for my little size 5 foot, that’s too big and I can’t go smaller. Ugh! 🙁 But, I highly recommend them and they come in some other colors, too.
The top is a super soft fleece by Gibson and comes in a bunch of different colors and even comes in petite. This top, however, I ended up sizing up for the looser fit and got the small.
The Jeans are high rise Current/Elliott with a raw step hem. They are really comfortable and a medium to light wash. I got them in my regular size, a 26. Nothing bad to report on them.
What I’m Wearing
The top I’m wearing is by Free People. It’s is a bit thick but not heavy with a slight dolman sleeve. I went up a size in this sweater so it hit a bit below the hip instead of at my hip. It is comfortable and perfect for the Fall! And it comes in 2 other colors.
The jeans are my favorite and are by AG. They’re a medium to dark wash, with some whiskering at the hips. Oh, and they’re not high rise! They also have an unfinished hem and need to be shortened (i.e. also tucked under in the picture).
A few last random list of items to consider….this tee from Current/Elliot I just ordered last night. I have to decide which one to keep but how could I compare until I have both in person. 🙂 This is the other one I already bought. The price of both are steep but the latter has a sparkle to it that really makes it fun. And for the former, I just like the darker color for Fall and the ruffle sleeve.
This tee by James Perse I got for my husband and he loves it. He loves how soft it is and the collar makes it a little nicer then your average crew neck style.
This letter necklace is perfect for everyday and would make a great gift, too!
