tweed jacket

GUYS. I hit up San Francisco’s Nordstrom for the first time yesterday (on my birthday!) for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I can’t wait to show you what I snagged! Don’t forget you can see all of my NSale coverage at the top of this page in the “NSale Picks!” page.

A few things worth mentioning….

1.  The sale started at 10AM and I had about two hours to shop and take these quick snaps before hopping in the car to take some girls to Napa for a bachelorette party… so I was a little rushed/frazzled, but I really wanted to show these pieces to you guys before they sell out!

2.  I’ve just downsized into a smaller apartment and had to purge so much, so I’m not looking to add more “stuff” to my closet unless I really, really love it. Rather than buy 100 things, I really want to show you guys what I think are the most versatile pieces and why.

While I sadly have no more room in my closet for shoes (#firstworldproblems), there were a lot of cute shoes on major markdown. I have and love these, definitely plan on ordering these (I somehow missed them in store), and really love these booties if you’re looking for some height.

3.  For most of these photos I obviously needed to clean my mirror and my OCD self is cringing that there is visible dust on the mirror. I can’t. Not acceptable!  If I was still in town I would definitely reshoot them so please give me grace! Jesus, take the wheel.

Levi’s 501 Crop Skinny | sale price: $64.90, after sale: $98 (I sized down to 26)

I nearly lost it when I saw this jacket. I mean… could it be a grandma tweed jacket? Sure. Is it 100% chic to the MAX!? Absolutely.  I think it looks so Coco Chanel! It also comes with a matching skirt, but it wasn’t fitting me right and I felt like the tweed was adding some bulk to my hips, which I’m definitely not going for. But this jacket is amazing. My favorite piece in the sale… other than these jeans!

Fringe Scarf  (comes in 3 colors) | sale price: $21.90, after sale: $33

You can’t have enough of these tees. They are SO comfortable, go with everything, and also look great knotted at the waist.

I can never resist a pair of Levi’s.  If you’re new to the classic Levi’s trend, this is a great time to try it them out at a fraction of the price. These are high waisted and the perfect ankle length, but I found them to run a little big (they have stretch), so size down if you want a snug fit!

And this scarf… I don’t even need to explain. LOVE. Cozy, cozy, cozy.  I almost bought it in a second color and now I’m thinking I should have.

Faux Leather Leggings | sale price: $49.90, after sale: $79

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect patterned menswear blazer, and I knew I would love this one (featured in yesterday’s roundup post). I sized down for a more tailored fit and I know it’s going to look so rad with camisoles and tees.

I snagged this camisole in both black and green, and I think it’s a classic cami that is a great layering piece.

I can’t have enough leggings (I love them for travel!), and I thought this faux leather pair would be a great addition for fall. They are so comfy and definitely slimming, but I would recommend sizing down. Other pairs I also like are these and these.

My friend Nikki bought these pajamas last year and raves about them. When I saw them included again this year, I knew I had to have a pair! They are so so so so comfy and soft. LOVE.

When I saw this sweater, I wasn’t sure if it would be too trendy, but when I slipped it on, it made me so happy I knew I had to have it!

And seriously… do yourself a favor and buy these jeans. I am seriously so excited about them – the perfect length (I’m 5’7″ if that helps give an idea).

The Early Access Sale continues until 7/19, and then it will be open to the public on 7/20.  I’m going to continue to cover the Anniversary Sale through 8/5, so if there are any categories you guys would like to see deep dives on, please let me know!

And if you’re NOT a cardholder, don’t sweat! They almost always restock items before the sale opens to the public, and sometimes they’ll add even more pieces.  There’s something for everyone.  Don’t forget to check the “NSale Picks!” page at the top of CBL for the latest and greatest.

Thank so much for reading and sharing – XO –

  1. Amazing choices! I’m loving that tweed jacket and the blazer!

    Jessica –

  2. I totally need that sweater!! Felling it! Hopefully will be restocked since it’s already gone in most sizes.

    1. Oh my gosh agreed! I saw another blogger try that on and they didn’t link it so I couldn’t find it! I’m sooo excited to buy that. Hoping more sizes open up

  3. Love that menswear blazer on you! Love those jeans also, but don’t think they’d look right on me being 5’3”. Is your phone case Gucci? Love it!

  4. so many great picks! need that cami when they restock!
    so how would you style cropped jeans like that into fall? every time i try to picture them with booties i just can’t ha so would you do slides? pumps? (i’m not a huge heels person, 3 little boys kinda holds me back from that!) but i love this trend so much! thanks!

    1. I would easily wear them with slides, sneakers, booties or pumps. Cropped jeans easily work into fall (unless it’s too cold and you’re worried about showing your ankles)!

  5. Love those cropped 501 Levi’s! Just curious since you stated you signed DOWN to a 26… Levi’s 501 usually runs small. I’m usually a 25 but in the regular 501s I needed a 26. Does this crop style run big? What is your usual pant size? Thanks!

  6. Awesome post!
    I like your approach of not getting too extensive with your purchases and of very well thinking about what you recommend us. I do like to keep a more streamlined wardrobe (could possibly be because of my “not-enough-room-in-my-closet”-problem as well haha).

  7. This is my first year being a card holder, and I am so exited to get the early access deals. Do you find that there is a drastically different items in store verse online? My big goal is a trench coat and I am wondering if there will be a different selection in store? Thank you so much for you advice, and your blog in general been an avid reader for years love it!

    1. I don’t think there’s a drastic difference, however I would recommend either ordering multiple jackets and returning the ones you don’t like or shopping in store. Returns are free, and sometimes things feel and fit differently in person!
