It’s HEREEE! The infamous nsale has arrived and I can’t wait to share everything I tried on with y’all! If you’ve never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, basically the hype is that they put brand new fall items on sale before they’re ever full price. So it’s a great time to stock up on fall pieces that you know you’ll wear often. Alright, let’s get to my 2021 nsale try on! Keep reading to see what surprised me, what I snagged, and what I loved.
**some of these items will be sold out when you read this! Things come in and out of stock a lot.

what I tried on // my 2021 nsale try on
I was definitely surprised this Daydreamer tee fit! It’s an XL, but fits oversized. I do know they don’t all fit the same though. Morgan tried on a couple that were too tight in XL too. So just fair warning. The Madewell cardigan is one of my favorites from the entire sale. I’m wearing size XL. It comes in multiple colors and added a preppy touch that y’all know I love. These Good American jeans are size 20. For reference, I usually wear an 18 or 20 in jeans and the 18’s wouldn’t even zip. So probs size up!
My most worn purchase so far is this UO plaid flannel. It’s oversized, so if you’re usually a XXL, you can wear the XL. It’s been sold out a bunch, but if you see it in stock, snag it and just trust me. I’ve been wearing it now with shorts and sneakers, but will be adding it with biker shorts, leggings, and boots into the fall. Obviously not all together haha, but you know what I mean.
Two staples of the sale, this Madewell tshirt dress and denim jacket. Wearing a 2X in both pieces! I would suggest sizing up in the denim jacket. The dress comes in a couple colors and regular sizing too. I love the ribbed material to give it some texture. If you’re worried about it clinging, size up! These Steve Madden flats are so fun and versatile. Don’t worry, they come in more neutral colors and even a navy tweed that I snagged. They run true to size and fit a wide foot.
Every year I kick myself for not buying this suede jacket. It’s such a steal this year and can be worn so many ways! I’m wearing the 1X in this one, so size down. The warm gray suede is a perfect neutral, but it also comes in a camel color.
Another favorite item from the sale, this Free People henley. I can’t recommend it enough. I bought mine last year and wore it at least 3 times a week. It’s long enough to pair with leggings in the fall and lightweight enough to layer. I’m wearing a large in my try on, but usually get my true XL size. Also comes in a couple colors and is usually sold out!
This was an unexpected favorite for me! I looove the bright pink color and the neckline on this sweater. It’s going to look so cute over skirts and dresses too. I’m wearing size XL. If you see it in stock, snag it because it sells out fast.

nsale shoe favorites
steve madden flats: so good I bought them in two colors. I love mules in the fall and the gold chain adds a touch of edge to them. They come in a couple neutral tones, pink, and the navy tweed. Run true to size, even for a wide foot!
vince camuto boots: love love these wide calf boots! They’ve got a touch of western, but still trendy with the chunky heel. I’m wearing wide calf, but they come in regular too and multiple colors/fabrics. Run true to size, I’d size up if you’re in between!
steve madden booties: definitely a top 3 of all my purchases. You can style these boots so many ways! They’re fitted in the ankle and run true to size
