#NSALE hits + misses pt. 1

I have some of the best hits and misses of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access! It is such a fun sale because they are all brand new items for this coming fall season that no one has yet! I know it's hot out but it's a great time to get excited about boots + booties, sweaters, great denim, and of course fall dresses!

I went to Nordstrom FIRST THING when it opened on Thursday and did some research to find the best of the best, and unfortunately some misses as well. Take a look:

jeans ($44.90 reg. $68)) // top ($21.90 reg. $34) // jacket ($64.90 reg. $98)

So much YES in this photo! I love this cute floral burgundy top with the lace-up neck. It is a perfect transition piece because it can be worn now in the summer and then layered in the fall, plus it is only $21.90 right now! THIS LEATHER JACKET is a MUST for everyone! It is on sale for $64.90 and worth every penny plus some. I did size up to a medium for this jacket, the small was a little short for my long arms, plus I like a little extra room for layering. These jeans are so cute.... however for some reason they did not fit me perfectly. They by all mans are NOT a miss but I am taking a second to think about them. If you have long legs then they are 100% yes... they do fit true to size, I wear a 26 and they fit, they are not high waisted just FYI!

top ($21.90 reg. $34) // jacket ($64.90 reg. 98) // skirt ($35.90 reg. $55)

We already discussed the top + jacket (above) so let's chat the denim skirt here. The skirt is from Topshop (which always fits small) it is high waisted and the denim is stretch material. Usually I size up in Topshop but I tried my regular size (26) and it fit great! I think it would look super cute with tights and booties as well in the cooler months.

I picked up this black ribbed 3/4 sleeve top solely because I touched it and it was the softest material I have ever touched.  It fits true to size and seriously a basic must have! Not only is it super comfy it is a great layering piece for the fall months approaching, and if you are in a warmer state like me here in Arizona it is not too thick of material! Also comes in a white + olive color.

Top is the same black 3/4 sleeve from above, this time I paired it with these light blue wash distressed denim and this black leather jacket almost the same as the cognac one. I love these jeans, they fit true to size but are stretch material so they will give, and for $37.90 you can't beat it! This jacket is another MUST HAVE, it is more "biker-y" than the cognac one but still so fabulous. I am wearing a size small and it fits great, so runs a little larger than the other one I posted above but made by the same brand, blanknyc. 

jacket ($64.90 reg. $98) // dress ($37.90 reg. $58)

Jacket, again same as above! I love a good button up shirt dress, I think they are super comfy and can be dressed up or down which if you know me is a big bonus in my want for choosing my wardrobe. This  plaid is super cute and since I bought the jacket I loved the matching cognac color in the lines in the plaid, however it runs big! I tired a small and an x-small and both were too big. They do have xx-small online! I am 5'4 and weigh between 115 and 120lbs if that helps with sizing. I just think this look is fabulous especially with a cute pair of booties!

Here is another shirt dress (also comes in Olive) that again runs big. I thought the rust color would be a deeper rust than it was. To me, I was not impressed, I much rather have the plaid dress, just gives the it a little something extra!

While we are on the topic of dresses, here is another rust lace-up (I seem to have a theme of rust going on here!) that I had high hopes for. However I did not love the way the dress hung on my body, didn't give much shape and the material make me look boxy. I was bummed because I love the lace up front. 

jeans ($44.90 reg. $68) // top ($36.90 reg. $56)

Jeans are the same as the first photo posted above, and this top is beautiful! It also comes in a blue color (hurry selling fast!) and both are just gorgeous! It did run a size lager for me, I typically wear a small but this fit me better in an x-small. The neckline ties at the back... just love!

jeans ($52.90 reg. $80) // sweater ($28.90 reg. $44)

THESE JEANS ARE THE BEST! I was obsessed and they come in both distressed and non-distressed! I sized up 2 sizes (to a size 28) because they are a stretchy jean (almost like legging) and  are high waisted Topshop.... size up! But seriously, love them! And this sweater is extremely comfortable! I tried both the grey and the rust (go figure!) and love both. I do recommend sizing down one size, it is longer in the back so even with the smaller size you can wear it with leggings! The sweater comes in  4 beautiful colors... I literally want one of each color!

dress ($24.90 reg. $38)

Last item for you today, this beautiful lace victorian style dress! Can you believe it is on sale for $24.90? I tried it on and immediately felt like a princess. I think it would look beautiful with a denim jacket and booties, by itself with a great pair of chunky heels, or with tights, a leather jacket and more booties! So versatile. Just love! Oh, and it fits true to size, I am wearing a small and it is definitely not too short. 

There you have it, a few of my must haves and misses for the first few days of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, early access.  I will be heading back to the mall early next week to see what else I can round up! Also, make sure you are following on instagram because I will be posting the outfits I fully styled with shoes + bags from the sale as well!
