What I Bought From the NSale

Hey friends! Hope y'all are having a wonderful day! I was shopping at 3am this morning, so I guess you could say I started my day off right??

I stayed up late last night, anxiously awaiting the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, or #NSale!

As y'all may know from following along on Instagram, I am working on creating a capsule wardrobe. I recently cleaned out my closet (I'm talking 6 or 7 bags FULL of clothing) and sold/donated all of it. I'm going to be sharing more about my capsule wardrobe and why I'm doing this soon - but for now, send me any questions you have!

Now...for the exciting part! Here's why I think this sale is worth your time and money: all of these items are new inventory. None of it has been sitting in a warehouse or store for months without moving. It's all brand new! This sale is also unique because it showcases mostly fall apparel such as boots, sweaters, hats, scarves, etc. that normally go on sale at the end of a season. This gives us the opportunity to buy the trendiest fall pieces at a discounted price before it's even fall! My personal favorite part of the sale is stocking up on basics that I currently need. For example, last year I purchased bras, tees, and leggings. This year, I will be continuing that trend, but also adding in some denim, dresses, sweaters, and more to help round out my Capsule Wardrobe.

If you want to follow along in real time, be sure to follow me HERE and watch my stories. I'll be sharing try-on videos as I receive my packages and giving you honest reviews of what I purchased.

Zella Leggings

I live in black leggings - any time I can find GOOD quality pairs on sale, I get them. I've tried Zella before, but I'll let y'all know what I think of these cropped ones.

STS Jeans

These are so affordable! I wanted to try an inexpensive option (rather than one over $100.) Excited to see how these fit!

Caslon Henley Tee

I can't wait to see how this fits in person! It looks so comfy and great for layering in the fall.

Socialite Tee Dress

I'm hopeful that this dress helps even out my capsule wardrobe goal and will be become a staple piece. Fingers crossed!

BP Color block Sweater

Love love love this abstract print and of course, the neutrals.

BP Cardigan

This color screams fall to me! It will be perfect for layering.

BP Varsity Sweater

I'm hopeful that this will be a top I can throw on with leggings when it starts to cool off outside. We'll see how it fits!


This is one piece I'm curious to see/feel in person. I have a feeling it could be hit or miss!

BP Lace Cami

Soooo excited about this one! Already dreaming of the layering possibilities.


Bought this in two colors. Enough said.


I am loving this unique color for fall! And of course the raw hem.

Total Savings: $169.20

What I already own worth buying

A few picks of pieces already in my closet that I've purchased in the past, but would 100% recommend to you that you can currently find on sale.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings


Alright y' there you have it! Everything I've purchased (so far) for this year's sale. I'm still considering some new boots and a new coat, but I will keep you updated on Instagram for any additional purchases. Make sure you keep your eye out for a try-on!

Happy Shopping!
