Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 // Favorite buys + more reviews (petite leather jackets, blazers, ponchos & tunics)

Happy happy Friday! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to the public! I've rounded up several new reviews (including a fab petite leather jacket find!), along with some more pre-Fall outfit inspo. There's lots of options in hard-to-find sizing, like size 4 through 13 shoes and xxsp apparel. Please also refer to my first post of reviews - there's several work-appropriate designer deals like these beautiful, slender Tory Burch flats and Kate Spade leather tote (fits a laptop) still in stock!

Judging by the madness that was early access, if there's any pieces you're mulling over, I'd recommend moving quickly (domestic shipping and return shipping are always free)! And definitely bookmark any sold-out items you love, since items tend to pop back on occasion.

Stuart Weitzman highland boots
This is not part of the Anniversary sale, but thanks to my helpful friend Laticia C. for letting us know that the classic Stuart Weitzman highland boots are a whopping 40% off in several classic suede colors! Sizes 4 and up are still available! Here is my review (I take size 5.5), comparing them to the Lowlands.

BP Tale suede mules sz 5.5 (under $50!)
I reviewed these last week, and they're still well-stocked! They do run a bit small - I'm usually between 5 and 5.5 and found the latter to fit best, after trying on a few different sizes.

Halogen cashmere vest, one size
Note the "one size" shoulders are a little wide on someone my size, but overall not too noticeable due to the light-weightiness and drape of the cashmere. I can see this layered over a tee with pants, skirts with boots, skinny jeans, and of course...leggings! I grabbed this camel one for my mom, who usually wears XSP.

I'm lucky to have my cousin now living in Boston - although we're the same size, we tend to gravitate towards different looks (with hers being a little edgier). These slip-on mules are not my typical style, but I loved them on her with this tunic and wanted to share!

I loved reading through all your comments in my Nordstrom Sale reviews post! It gave me a better idea of what types of pieces you guys are interested in (comfy athleisure and work-appropriate items for the win), and I'll definitely be sharing more reviews on those fronts. If you had left a question about something, I'm having some technical difficulties responding on my last post, so please just let me know again below!

Amongst your comments, one of the most mentioned pieces by far was Barefoot Dreams cardigans. This brand has an avid following for their oh-so-cozy plush cardigans that "feel like you're wearing a hug," in the words of a reader! Their materials are more casual like loungewear, but you can dress it up a bit with jeans and a pretty cami. For our flight last weekend, I swapped in my trusty Zella live-in leggings and flat loafers, and got the workout of my life sprinting like a madwoman through the Amsterdam airport (the terminal transfer line there is no joke!). Another thing I love about the live-in leggings is that the knees do not stretch out on me, even after a long day of sitting. So many of my other, older leggings have baggy pouches around that area - never again!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access 2017: petite-friendly picks


It's that time of the year again! Early Access for Nordstrom's Anniversary sale has begun, and I'm here to help navigate and share some detailed reviews! I've combed through thousands of sale items for the best finds, from seasonal staples to shoes in small sizes and beauty must-haves.

Mix and Match // Gingham sandals + floral print skirt

Ann Taylor top (on sale! also worn here) xxsp c/o, Chicwish skirt xxs c/o, DY bracelet
Betsy Johnson sandals sz 5 (runs narrow), Cuyana bag c/o (also worn here), earrings

This look is one of my recent favorites - I love remixing older pieces in my closet and experimenting with print pairings! I've shown this skirt here (read my fit review) with a button-up blouse and blazer, here with a ruffled sleeve top, and wanted a slightly cleaner, more elegant pairing for an event last month. The higher neckline and angled shoulders on this sweater top created sleek lines that help balance out the fullness of this skirt.

To quickly make this appropriate for a business casual office, I'd add my trusty cropped cardigan to cover up the shoulders and swap out the sandals for closed-toe pumps. My faux leather scalloped tote bag (which fits a laptop and much more) is a complete steal right now, on sale for 50% off and currently stocked again in all three colors!
