Dressing Room Diaries: 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom ShoppingHappy Monday! Have you shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet? I sure have!  I went down to Dallas for the weekend to visit my parents and to shop the Nordstrom sale. One of my OKC blogger friends, Candace met me down there too. It was so fun!

I wanted to share what I purchased and tried on. For sizing purposes I want to note that I am in between a small and XS, so I am sharing the size the worked best for me. I will also note I am not a selfie expert, so bear with me on the quality of the pictures 😉 I will be taking more non-selfie pictures ASAP in these looks and will also share when my online orders come in. It’s safe to say I am all set for fall; now I just need it to cool down at least 30 degrees!

Jacket: Here (run small, I am wearing a small. The XS was tight in the shoulders for me) Top: H&M- SOLD OUT Jeans: Here  Shoes: here

I’m obsessed with this top and these jeans. I get a lot of comments on Instagram like “oh I love all of your dresses”, so I want to explain that I don’t wear a lot of jeans because I have trouble finding ones that fit well since my thighs are the biggest part of me. I am sooo excited because I found some great ones; I even ordered another pair of this brand because I LOVE these.

Dress: Here (runs small, size up) I did not purchase this dress because I was buying too much and it was similar to two dresses I did buy, but LOVE it Shoes: Here

      Thank you for reading, Taylor! I’m glad you found it helpful. We don’t have one in Oklahoma City, so I had to go to Dallas. My parents live there though so it’s always fun to make a trip there.
