#NSALE Opens to the Public (& Giveaway Winners Announced!)

UPDATE: My full Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide for 2017 is now LIVE! Click here for the full guide and sizing reviews.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened to the public this morning and some of the most popular items have been restocked… including the AG jeans and the Vince Camuto booties. Keep checking throughout the morning because other popular items will be restocked as well! 
I bought an XS in this Lush long sleeve blouse – it’s not low-cut at all (in case you were worried) and comes in three different colors. The AG jeans are one of my favorite purchases from the sale and the fit is TTS. These jeans don’t stretch at all (which is why I love them) but keep that in mind while you’re ordering!
AG legging ankle jeans
I picked up this Nixon leather band watch from the sale and am SO happy I did. It matches with every single clothing item and looks amazing with cognac and burgundy handbags. It’s such a classic watch that you can wear all year round, but I think it will look particularly good in the fall! The band is adjustable, so it fits even very small wrists (I have unusually small wrists) which is a huge plus for me.

This Topshop patchwork cardigan has also been restocked – I am wearing the size US 2. I know it looks huge on the model online, but it’s not that big in person, and it’s meant to be oversized and cozy. It’s really soft in person, which I was surprised by, and it is seriously SO comfortable. I’ve been wearing it when I’m in my office working!

My favorite booties from the sale, the Vince Camuto Feina booties, have been restocked but are guaranteed to sell out again. They are the most universally flattering booties – my mom got some also, and they look equally as good on her. Wear them with shorts, a dress, jeans…. they are also incredibly versatile. They are TTS so get your normal size!
LOVE these Vince Camuto booties!
Lush crepe blouse (less than $30 & comes in seven colors) // similar white shorts
This ASTR lace-up sweater was another favorite purchase from the sale. It’s TTS, I’m waring the XS. I love the slits in the side and the fact that you don’t need to wear a tank on underneath (the front doesn’t come down very low or even low enough to see cleavage). I wear it with shorts, white pants and denim.

These are a few of my shoe purchases from the sale… we already talked about the Vince Camuto booties, so let’s talk about the lace-ups. The Halogen “Owen” lace-up flats come in several colors, I also wish I had gotten them in the “chestnut suede” color because it’s such a neutral. I am happy with mine, too, I absolutely LOVE the bordeaux color for fall. These flats fit TTS and are some of the most comfortable flats I’ve ever worn. 
The Vince Camuto “Barsha” lace-up pumps are really great shoes to have in your closet. I found that the grey color matches so much, and they are perfect for your work wardrobe or for date night or a night out on the town. They are TTS.

I’ve talked about these Lush crepe blouses a lot over the past week, but they seriously are the best. They come in so many cute colors and can be styled a million ways (think of it with a faux fur vest in the fall!). I wear an XS in the tops.

The Leith dolman dress is fully stocked and SO cute and flattering on. I got a size XS. Look how cute it is with a blanket scarf!

One of my handbag purchases from the sale, the Tory Burch convertible leather crossbody bag. The leather is incredibly high quality, just like all of Tory Burch’s bags. It’s actually pretty roomy inside, too, but if you’re looking for a bigger option, check out this one. These handbags in the “bark” color will go with every single outfit.

Crossing my fingers that the Wayf off-shoulder blouse comes back in stock this morning! Wearing a size XS. I love the detailing on the sleeve and the fact that you can wear it now, and it doesn’t have to be saved for fall!

AG “the legging” ankle jeans // Chloe espadrille wedges, less expensive version here
$15 tee shirts that are comfortable, soft as my pajamas, and high-quality… sign me up! I am obsessed with these V-neck tees and am ordering more this morning. They aren’t see-through (even the white one) and you can wear them alone or under cardigans and jackets.

J.Crew camo shirt (old), similar HEREHERE & HERE // similar white pants on sale
Valentino leopard flats, similar versions HERE & HERE // Gucci handbag c/o

The B.P. cargo anorak jacket is SUCH fall staple, trust me! The olive green color is gorgeous and can go over tees, long sleeved shirts, sweaters, plaid shirts, etc. It looks great with a blanket scarf, too! I got an XS in it, but the sleeves are still a little long.

Vince Camuto “Feina” booties in “khaki suede” // Shiraleah “Anya” plaid blanket scarf

Perhaps my very favorite bag from the sale, the Vince Camuto “Abril” leopard bag. I love these Vince bags because they look just like the Chloe Faye handbag, but for a lot less. This leopard one is the perfect way to add a pop of pattern to an outfit.

This outfit I re-created from last year using all new products! My Caslon knit tee is only $17. Wearing the XS. It comes in SIXTEEN colors so that is a lot to choose from!

Tory Burch leather crossbody bag // leopard heels // monogram necklace (size 3XL)

This dress I’m wearing is another great purchase you can wear now or later. (It has really cute bell sleeves you can’t see in this picture!) It’s TTS, I’m wearing the XS. I have it belted with a leopard belt here, so it does make the dress look a little shorter than it actually is (keep that in mind). My mom’s Treasure & Bond sweater is also really cute and SO cozy (cause I tried it on!). My mom’s review of her purchases can be found here

  15. The Vince Camuto booties in the camel color were never restocked. I checked yesterday, as well as when the sale went live to the public and numerous times since so I know it isn't just a matter of me missing them. You should check with your contact at Nordstrom about this.

    • Hey girl! When I wrote this post at 4 a.m. this morning, they had been restocked! I double checked to be sure. Same with the AG jeans, which were also fully stocked. Things just sell out so fast! I will definitely post again if they come back in stock. I think Nordstrom should have done a better job preparing of the sale with more stock!

  16. Seriously, I think you've done the best NSale posts from what I've seen so far, Caitlin! LOVED your mom's input too from yesterday's post! I caved and got the Halogen flats too! Have a great weekend! xo

    • Huong, thank you so much for this comment!!! That means so much to me! I hope you love the Halogen flats – they are very comfortable (AND cute 🙂

  17. Those are such great outfits you've styled! So adorable!!! Do you have any details on your jewelry? Namely that amazing ring that shows up in a few images???
