2019 Anniversary Sale #DressingRoomSelfies: Laura’s Picks

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Hey hey, Friday! Whew. We love this day, don’t we? The preview of what’s to come for everyday fall fashion. Yay! My very favorite season of them all. Yeah, yeah, summer’s fine, but fall….gimme. 

My list when I went in for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? The usual. Jeans, boots, sneakers and jackets. Plaid, black, gray and some pops of animal print and color. What I found? I’m just gonna self-title this: outerwear, animal prints, and total pattern mixing…honey. YESSSS. I found all the good things I love and I now realize why summer isn’t my thing: jackets. I love jackets and here is where I try them alllll on. I also found that pattern mixing is still my jam. So I do that here. Let’s just jump into the goodness…

*disclaimer, too: the super-sweet salesperson helping me brought a pair of shoes not in the sale. Doh! I’ve linked to another snake flat that I’d swap out for it that IS on sale!

Section I: Coats & Jackets

These. These are what I live for in the fall. There are some amazing outerwear finds here, y’all. I couldn’t decide so I brought quite a few home. I’ll continue to give my updated opinion on them! 

1. The Perfect Plaid Overcoat

I adore this! I was hoping to find something similar during the sale. I think I ordered another one in a similar cut to try, so I’ll keep ya posted, but this one is GOOD, y’all. I actually love the ruched sleeve because I wind up pushing mine up anyway. This one is reasonable, fits well and isn’t super heavy weight, so it’ll be wearable more of the year. Wearing a Small.

2. This Gorgeous Plaid Blazer

LOVE. This Vince Camuto lovely is slightly school blazer and slightly awesome. I was so hot I think I posed funny here, but in person I adore it even more. The site says it runs large, but I’m wearing my typical 6 for blazers, and with a sweater under it was fine. I do think it might look a little more crisp in a size down though.

3. The Leopard Coat Of My Dreams

I’ve realized lately I pretty much just want to dress like a slightly toned-down version of Macklemore. Fuzzy coats, leopard and sneakers. YES. I adore this coat. It is fab. It works with everything and it upgrades a vintage version (see, v Macklemore) I have had for years that isn’t quite up to par anymore. Anyway, this was probably my favorite find. Wearing a Small.

4. THIS Fabulous Emerald Jacket

Where have you been all my emerald-loving life?? Green-eyed ladies know what I’m talking about, I think. This color is just the most lux fabulous thing ever. It’s SO soft. And even goes with sneakers? I think so. Wearing a Small.

5. Who Doesn’t Need a Cool Zebra Cardigan??

I would have never picked this out online, but it’s the greatest structured yet not-too-heavy wool cardigan jacket thing. I love it. It came home with me for throwing on over all the tees and jeans. Neutral gray and black in a cool yet totally wearable zebra. YES. I feel like I will get so much wear out of this. Wearing a Petite Small.

6. A More Interesting Raincoat 

I mean, you already know boring raincoats get so old. I don’t have to tell you that. This one is super-fun, but it does fit a little big. This is a small, and I would like to try the XS to compare. It says water-resistant, FYI, but it would just be a super-fun way to jazz up jeans, a tee and sneakers on the drizzly days (everyday #pnw).

Section II: Tops, Sweaters & Jeans

1. The Animal Print Cami That Goes With Everything

I think I literally put this top on with everything I tried. It’s the perfect small print that mixes easily. The top is just a perfect fun-neutral, so well made, perfectly fitted but not too much and sexy without being over the top. This came home with me.

2. Some Fab Sweater Picks

I think it’s hard for me to think sweater this time of year, but I always kick myself for not snagging a really great one during the sale. So don’t be like me and forget the sweaters! I’ll keep you updated on my fav, but for today it was the gray cashmere or the striped cashmere from Vince!

3. The Cozy Cardigans

Last year I made a Cardi B joke, but this year, I’ll just stick to talking about the clothing. I feel like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the only time I find cardigans I actually like. What’s up with that? All of these are cozy, cute and not boring. I’m taking that AllSaints jacket to my very chic mom tomorrow and she’s stoked. I’m really digging this affordable space-dyed number right here.

4. This Affordable Pair of Gray Jeans

Ya’ll. This color could not be better and these jeans are $51. Yay! I could kick myself (again, ouch) for not hanging onto another pair of gray skinnies from last year and these are the same shade. So good! They fit TTS if not just slightly big. Super soft and stretchy, but not thin. Wearing a 4 Petite.

5. These Insanely Soft Jeans In The Perfect Wash

Shana tried these on and I see why. I love these. They came home with me, too. They are soft, fit well, have a good rise without being too high and the perfect vintage wash. They have stretch, cool distressing and are just that go-to skinny jean you’ll love. I found them to fit true to size. Wearing my regular 27.

  1. How tall are you, Laura? I love the plaid blazer but it seems so long. Like it would swallow my 5’2” frame.

  2. Elizabeth Rafter on

    So many good pieces here! This might be my favorite roundup so far! Love the long plaid blazer and leopard print coat so much!

  3. Killin’ it as always. Great job! I’ve already ordered but now I am adding more items to my wishlist. And hoping a few things get restocked… already! Thanks 🙂
