Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Catalog Sneak Peek! | + New Try Ons

nordstrom-anniversary-sale-2017Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since we did a Nordstrom try on post. So we thought it would be so fun to show some new arrivals to you all plus provide our thoughts on sizing, fit etc. Lindsay normally does our try on photos since she’s a pro at them LOL. But I decided to give them a try since I was traveling last week and had some spare time to stop into the local Nordstrom.

Also, we have a sneak peek of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Catalog at the end the post that you won’t want to miss! So without further ado, here’s the 20 new items I tried on during my Nordstrom adventure.

1. Leopard Sleeveless Blouse // Shop it HERE
This beauty is a must have! I loved the hi low hem and the ruffle gather detail at the back. It runs true to size. The fabric is comfy too and doesn’t wrinkle which is always a plus.

2. Bobeau Knot Front Sweatshirt // Shop it HERE 

This top comes in lots of colors and is very comfy! It’s lightweight as well. We found it to run true to size. The knot detail is really popular right now. I would definitely recommend buying this one!

3. Cold Shoulder Ruffle Blouse // Shop it HERE
I can’t recommend this top enough! It is even cuter in person and fits really well. I found it to run true to size. It’s not clingy either which I love. The striped pattern is eye catching and was definitely my first pick. But it also comes in several other really pretty colors. I had to buy it! 🙂

4. Gingham Ruffle One Shoulder Blouse //  Shop it HERE
Love this top so much! It’s very comfy and the cotton is lightweight and not stiff like some can be. The top comes in several colors and runs true to size. I’m wearing a size small here. I also tried it on in this fun burgundy brown shade and liked it as well. The fabric is a bit more stiff on the solid colors but still comfortable and would recommend. I had to try on a M in it since the small was gone, so I tried to hold the extra fabric back so you could get a look at it still.



5. Ruffle Sleeve Top // Shop it HERE

This blouse is really soft and I liked the ruffle details a lot. The fabric feels like a ponte and is not a thin tshirt fabric like I initial thought when seeing it online. It comes in lots of colors too and runs true to size. I do wish it was an inch longer but overall we’d recommend it.


6. Lightweight Long Cardigan // Shop it HERE

This is a perfect summer cardigan since it’s very lightweight. It comes in several pretty color options and runs true to size. The price point seems to be good for this type of items as well. The sizing advice says it runs large so if you are between sizes then go down in size. But I thought the small fit comfortably. Also, I’m wearing this hi low hem tank in an XS since the S was gone in store. If between sizes on it we suggest going with the smaller size HERE

Here’s the same cardigan in red. The color is very pretty in person. Also, the same cardigan in white and olive green colors are on sale HERE.

7. Gingham Ruffle Collar Blouse // Shop it HERE 
Okay so this top is a bit of a mystery to me. It’s so cute but the sizing is off. I tried on the small and it was huge! So I sized down to the XS (which is what Lindsay always wears, but not me LOL) and it was much better. It still had a tad extra fabric on the sides but fit well in the armholes. I didn’t end up buying it but if it goes on sale I would because I loved the ruffle detail so much. It comes in a few other colors too.


8. Knit Ruffle Peplum Top // Shop it HERE

The color and ruffles caught my eye and the fabric is really soft. The sizing is 1/2 size large though. I’m wearing a small here and there was extra room in the waist for sure. I liked the overall concept but would suggest sizing down or going with a petite. It does comes in lots of pretty colors and I did like that the length is longer. It would look cute with white jeans too!


9. Tie Front Sleeveless Top // Shop it HERE
This knit top really surprised me. The price point is good and the length is great too. There’s several colors to choose from and I loved this olive color in person. It would be cute mixed and matched with so many things. I found it to run true to size. I bought this top and can’t wait to wear it.


10. Knit Cold Shoulder Top // Shop it HERE

I like the fabric and the color of this top. I just wish it was a tad longer. It comes in four colors and runs pretty true to size. It looks a bit wide in the photo now that I see it so perhaps sizing down or going with a petite would be better. I love the pink color that it also comes in.


11. Double Ruffle Layer Top // Shop it HERE 
I had such high hopes for this top. But the small ran big and wasn’t very flattering on me. I was in a rush so didn’t try on the XS to see if looked better. It fits wide and short in my opinion. But the ruffle sleeves are so cute! Definitely will order another size to see if it fits better.


12. Polka Dot Ruffle Top // Shop it HERE
I think this is almost the same as the style above but the fabric is the lightweight flowy type which I really like. The small was too big so I did grab the XS and it seems much better. So our advice would be to size down or order in a petite for sure. It still has a tad extra room on the sides but I think that’s the dolman sleeve fit. The ruffle sleeves are so cute that I couldn’t pass it up. Also, this style comes in a floral yellow and a floral navy print.

13. Tie Front Striped Top // Shop it HERE 
We rarely advise against tops but this is a no go for sure. The fit is huge and the pleats fall awkward on the chest. I sized down to the xs {shown here} and it still fit big / awkward. I still don’t think it would be salvageable even if on sale LOL. Which is such a shame since it really could have been cute.


14. Camo Cold Shoulder Top // Shop it HERE 
I really like this blouse! It’s cute and comfy. I did size up to a M since there wasn’t a small in store. It seems to fit fine to me. Plus I like to have a tad extra room to allow for any shrinkage. It has all five star reviews so it seems like others agree it is on trend and comfortable. 🙂

15. Asymmetrical Ruffle Top // Shop it HERE

This top is a new arrival and comes in three colors. I think it’s cute but it didn’t come home with me. It runs a smidge wide but think sizing down would have made it too snug in the shoulders. I’m wearing a small here.


16. Tiered Bell Sleeve Top // Shop it HERE

I had been eyeing this top since it came out a few weeks ago. It’s really cute and comes in several color options. The elastic at the shoulders is comfy. The only thing I didn’t expect is the elastic band at the elbow. I wish it had been a smidge looser. Overall thought a cute blouse and I will order it as soon as it goes on sale.

17. Striped Flutter Sleeve Top // Shop it HERE
This french terry tee shirt comes in three colors including this pink and white stripe version. I really thought it was cute but not sure if the color washed me out personally. I do like the ruffle sleeves. It didn’t come home with me but I’m still considering ordering it online.

18. Off The Shoulder Ruffle Sleeve Top // Shop it HERE 
Love this blouse so much! I wanted it in gingham but it was sold out in store. So I tried on this navy plaid in my normal size small. I was surprised by how comfy it was. The smocking at the shoulders is way more comfortable than traditional elastic. I highly recommend it! I bought the one shown here and plan to order the gingham as well.

19. Twist Front Tee // Shop it HERE
I loved the knot from tank top from #9 so much that I was excited to try on this $22 twist front tee. It comes in five colors. The fabric is a bit thin but that’s to be expected for a shirt of this price point. I think it’s a cute basic but didn’t end up buying it since I already loved the sleeveless one and purchased it.

20. Off The Shoulder Ruffle Dress // Shop it HERE
This slub knit dress is so comfy! I loved that it comes in lots of color options. The fit is relaxed and hits below the knee. So if you are between sizes, I’d suggest going down a size or getting it in the petite version for sure. I didn’t grab the xs to see, so this pic is of the small which is my normal size. And how cute is this clutch?!? I think it would go with so many outfits.

Well that’s a wrap! I had so much fun trying these new items on for you all! I ended up bringing home tops #3, #4, #8, #11, and #18. Next on my list is #1 (can’t pass up leopard)!

Our other favorite tunic top of the summer that we previously purchased is this Gibson Ruffle top. It comes in 6 colors and is so cute and comfortable! If in between sizes, size down. But we kept our regular sizes in it since we like the flowy style. You will love it! The  black, blush, blue and hot pink are our favorites so far… the collection keeps growing! 🙂
