Dressing Room Diaries - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Lots of amazing finds from this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I got some staples (jeans), athleisure wear and surprisingly more sweaters than I would have thought. Check out all my reviews. I will keep updating this as the items I ordered come in stock.

ATHLEISURE
top / shorts / leggings (similar)

Since I'm working from home a lot more, I wanted a few pieces that are comfortable but can pass as workwear on camera. This Zella tee is perfect. You can wear it on its own or layer it. I love it so much that I ordered it in black too. 



cardigan / top / leggings (similar)

I love a cozy sweatshirt in the fall and winter and this wrap one from Zella is so perfect. I love the exaggerated collar and the fact that you can close it up or wear it open. It runs big so consider sizing down. On the left, I'm wearing a small and on the right I'm wearing an XXS - the XXS fits SO much better! 


The last of my Nordstrom Anniversary items finally arrived. I wanted a simple white tank that would work with leggings or shorts and this one is PERFECT. Fit is true to size. There are other colors available and it's IN STOCK right now (well at least as of me posting it).

TOPS

I wasn't sure about these asymmetrical sweaters from All Saints but I wanted to try it because I thought it would be perfect for work (with black pants), a casual night (with jeans) or a night out (with Spanx). And it really is. The sweater is SO soft and the asymmetrical design is subtle but makes a big impact. I had a hard time deciding between black and white but I stuck with my go-to black. 


Another fabulous sweater that I kept. This one is from Madewell. I love the texture of it. I have a feeling I'm going to be living in this one this winter for my video calls. I'm wearing a small and it fits perfectly. 


This is another fabulous sweater from All Saints. It's super cute and chic. I love the gathered sleeves and dolman style. If I didn't already have a sweater like this in my closet I would have kept it for sure. I'm in an XS and it fits perfectly. 


Another Madewell sweater for the win! I love the cardigan style with the pom pom detail. Super cute and comfortable. Will be great for my work video calls or just hanging out on the weekend. Definitely a keeper! 


I threw this top in just for fun not thinking I'd end up keeping it. I love the floral detail and the sheerness across the top. Will be perfect for work or a night out. Fit is true to size. 



This sweater was another keeper. Love the 3/4 sleeves and waffle stitch detail. I think this is going to be the perfect transition sweater to fall and again in the spring. Love! If white isn't your thing, they have other colors available. Fit is true to size. I'm in an XS. 

waffle tee (size down) / jeans (size down)

I really love this look and I wanted it to work for me but everything was too big. The top was swimming on me...way too big (I'm in an XS). It's super cute and I definitely recommend it but you NEED to size down. The jeans are FABULOUS but they are a bit big so I'm returning and hoping that the next size down eventually becomes available. Highly recommend snagging them but remember to size down. 


This was the only dress I picked up to try this year and I absolutely love it. I'm tempted to also get it in black if it comes back in stock in my size. Super cute and comfortable. Will be great for the fall transition weather. It can be perfect for work or a night out. Fit is true to size but it is on the shorter side (I'm 5'1") so keep that in mind. 



I've mentioned this before but the Nordstrom sale is a great opportunity to get staples for your closet. I am in need of a new black winter coat. I threw this in my cart to try. Basically it's a new version of coat I currently have. Fit is great and it will definitely keep me warm. All that being said, I think I'm going to return it because I don't think I want the same style...I want to try something new.


HOME


I updated my charcuterie boards with these wood/marble ones. I really wanted them to serve two purposes - decorative and functional - but I don't think they work by the stove so I'll move them but they will look fabulous at my next gathering.

Target Tuesday - Spring and Summer Tops, Dresses

A quick little Target Tuesday try on for you with some super cute tops and dress for spring and summer...and a bikini thrown in for good measure. :) 

shirt / shorts (similar) / shoes

How cute is the ruffle sleeve top!?!?! It's the perfect $20 spring/summer top. I had to try it in two colors but there are SO many more options. Fit is true to size. You can dress it up or down. Definitely a winner for your summer wardrobe. 



This is a super cute babydoll style dress. Love the floral print...perfect for spring/summer. Fit is true to size. The only thing I didn't like was the way the bust line hit...was a little too short for my "girls." Comes in one solid and one other print option. 



Putting myself out there in another bathing suit post. This one is from Target and I absolutely LOVE it. I love the style of the top, very flattering but I also feel secure and nothing will pop out. The band was a little snug but I have a feeling it will loosen with wear. And the color is so pretty. Fit is true to size. Definitely recommend.

Another dress winner. Love the playfulness of this dress with the ruffle sleeves, gathered waist and tiered skirt. It's a beautiful, feminine floral print. Fit is true to size and on my 5'1" frame it's the perfect length.


I love a cute white top for the spring and this one has all the fabulous details - eyelet and a ruffle sleeve. Fit is true to size. If you'd prefer a bit of color, it also comes in lilac and rust options.

Target Tuesday - A Mix Bag of Try Ons

A mix bag of different styles for this try on...enjoy!!!

Super cute dress with the perfect ruffle hem detail. This dress is so versatile. Wear it to work, play or the pool. It's fabulous on it's own or pair it with a blazer for work or throw it over the bathing suit when you head to the pool/beach. Fit is true to size. Comes in a bunch of colors.  

This top is the perfect transition top to spring. Cute ruffle and embroider detail and has a peplum top which is forgiving on the waist. Perfect top for your video calls. Comes in blue and black as well. Fit is a bit big so consider sizing down. 

I'm such a sucker for a cute black dress and this puff sleeve one from the A New Day brand got me. I love the sleeves and the swiss dot fabric. Extremely flattering (supposed to be midi but a little longer on me). And the best part is that it has POCKETS!!  Fit is true to size. Also comes in a light purple. 

I love these cropped muscle tanks from the Joy Brand so much that I got them in two color. Really soft, lightweight material. Great for working out or just lounging around. They come in a BUNCH of colors. HIGHLY recommend. Fit is true to size. And they are under $20!!!


This wasn't my favorite of the Target dresses I have tried on this season. I love the blue/white stripe. Reminded me of seersucker but I didn't think the dress was very flattering on me. I think if I was a bit taller. Fit is true to size. Also comes in a light tan/white stripe.

Dressing Room Diaries - J.Crew Factory

J.Crew Factory has been hitting it out of the park lately with their spring and summer looks. I did a major haul that I had to share with you. 


I needed a bit of a refresh on my lounge wear for spring. Loving this set...comfy sweats and who doesn't love a graphic tee. I'm in a small in both...I like looser fits for pjs/comfy clothes. Sweats come in a bunch of different colors and lots of graphic tees to coordinate. 

Another add to my PJs/loungewear are these ADORABLE gingham pajamas. Love the bright pink. Super comfortable. I know they probably look a bit big, I size up one size (in a small) because I like a bigger fit for my PJs. 



I am definitely spring break ready in this floral bikini number. I'm very partial to this french cut style because it fits the girls and keeps them in while I'm playing in the pool with the minis. Love the floral detail on this one and I have so many cover ups that will work with it. 


top / pants / sunnies / earrings (oldies from vineyard vines) / sandals (oldies from Target)

This outfit just screams spring! Love this top. It has the cutest details - ruffle sleeves, high neck and the cutouts along the collar bone. Comes in a couple of colors. Fit is true to size. I also love these white jeans. They are a straight leg which I wasn't sure I would like but I do. These are very comfortable and the button fly is a great detail. Fit is true to size. 


This is a super cute lightweight top for spring. I love the swiss dot detail on the material. There are a few colors available. I went with vibrant red but I think it's more of an orange. This is a great shirt for work or play. Works well with pants or shorts. Fit is true to size. 


Perfect spring/summer accessories to give your looks some color. They are stretchy so they will fit most wrists. And since I ordered them, they've added green, white and another blue color! 

These are fabulous flip flops for summer. Very comfortable and look super chic and they are under $20!

Five Friday Favorites - Amazon Finds

I haven't been doing a ton of Amazon fashion shopping partly because I just haven't been feeling like shopping! I know that's a shocker (even my husband commented on the lack of packages) but truthfully it's groundhog day every day so I'm just not motivated. I have found a few items that I love so sharing them for this week's Five Friday Favorites! 


Love a good sweatshirt these days and this cropped one from Amazon's Core 10 line is amazing. The perfect cropped length for me. Love the funnel neck. Fit is true to size. Other colors available.


#2 - Summer Purse

LOVE, LOVE this purse I snagged the other day. I can't wait to rock it on spring break. Love the bamboo and the sturdiness of it. There are two different sizes...I opted to go for the smaller one and it will fit everything I need for a night out. 

When I travel I don't like to bring big containers of everything so this little contraption allows me to bring my shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion all in one. You can really put whatever you want in them but that's what I picked. Stores easily in my cosmetic bag. The only down side is that it requires a lot of pumps to get out the amount I need but its worth it. 

I absolutely LOVE this dress. I love the babydoll style with the ruffle sleeves. It's so comfortable but still flattering. And, the color is SO me!! If you aren't into pink, don't worry there are other colors available. Layer it with a jacket for cooler days. Fit is true to size. I'm in a small. And did I mention it's under $30! Definitely one to check out! 

I just ordered my second pair of these joggers because they are so amazing. A nice slim fit and flattering but SO comfortable. I actually sized down to an XS in these and they fit great. Come in a bunch of colors and are constantly in and out of stock. Highly recommend.

Target Tuesday - Mainly Spring/Summer Try On






I am obsessed with this camo fleece. It is SO cozy and warm. Love the camo print because it has some subtle pink through out. Fit is true to size. I'm in a small.

sweatshirt / jeans / boots (similar)

Tie-dye is still in style and I am LOVING this sweatshirt. Perfect slightly oversized fit (I'm in a small). If tie-dye isn't your thing, don't worry this sweatshirt comes in all different prints/styles. 

shirt / shorts / shoes

I love a good a paper bag short. These are such a unique color...one I don't have in my closet so I'm keeping them. They are super comfortable and great length (wish they were a bit shorter). They will look much better on me once I have a tan.   

I'm a sucker for a cute babydoll dress and this one from the Who What Wear brand is SO cute. Puff sleeve with a texture fabric. It's perfect for work or play and layering. Fit is true to size. 

In the spring/summer months I love sleeping in a nightgown and this one from Target's Stars Above brand fits the bill. Soft material, nice and lightweight and the length is perfect for me (I'm 5'1" for reference). Highly recommend.


I LOVE that dress season is almost here. I live in these types of dresses all spring/summer. What I love the most about this style dress from A New Day brand is it can be worn for work or play depending on how much I dress it up with shoes/jewels. Very comfortable and figure flattering. Layer it with a blazer or jacket on the cooler days. 


dress / shoes

I love wearing this color. One of my besties told me I should wear it more because it is "my" color. And the more I wear it, I think she's right. Don't worry if it isn't your color, this dress comes in a bunch of options. Love the lightweight gauze feel. You could also wear this as a cover up. Fit is a bit big so you might want to consider sizing down. I'm in an XS.

And Big Mini had a little shopping spree. She went through a growth spurt so I needed to get her some new clothes for our upcoming spring break trip. I love that she's got her own sense of style now. 

I'm not the only one who loves the tie dye trend. Big Mini is OBSESSED with this dress. She loves the maxi style and the flowiness when she walks. 


Big Mini loves anything tie dye and this shirt is PERFECT for her. Also comes in a pink/red combo. Also these white shorts are so cute. Love the fray detail. I wish they came in my size. I do find Cat & Jack shorts do run a bit big so we size down. 


I was surprised that she picked this t-shirt because pink hasn't been her color lately. It's a soft tee and will be great for everyday wear this spring and summer. And these shorts are darling. If you look close enough you can see the sequin cut out detail. She's obsessed with them.

Another maxi dress for the win! This girls is loving the long and flowiness of the maxi dress. This one has cute ruffle sleeve details. It comes in another floral print (which I liked more).
