Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases

You are probably sick of hearing about this sale by now, but I figured I would share my purchases and do a review of the most anticipated sale of the year. For the first time in years, I only purchased a couple items instead of a bunch. Mostly due to the fact that I'm currently six months pregnant so come fall time, I will not be interested in dolling up or wearing new clothes so close to giving birth. The second is due in part to the fact that this year, the sale just didn't wow me. Sorry to say but I saw so many bloggers on Instagram with the line
"guys its soooo good, shop my picks" because if you click their links, they get paid for that but really, it wasn't that great! I feel like I saw a lot of the same boring styles from last year and even this summer (e.g. bell sleeves, basic booties, boring dresses, and a lot of basic pieces, nothing noteworthy). 

So what did I buy then?
1. Well the raw edge pocket tees from Lush in black and white to replace my old ones (I like the longer hem and looser fit on these, it gives a casual look some ease). 

2. The ruffle sleeve cardigan from Topshop. I tried this on in the store in the lavender color in a size 6, and it was cute but the arms were way too big. I figured it would be a cute updated piece for fall in black so I ordered the size 4.

3. The Breton hat.  I am so happy that this style hat is finally back, because it makes any outfit look model-chic. I love hats anyway and am totally sick of the floppy brim styles of the past 3 seasons.

4. Leith body-con dress in eggplant is a literal best-buy piece. It's amazing quality and is a perfect piece to throw on with a stylish sweater, kimono or jacket and go. I got my normal size and wore it at 5 months preggers for my gender reveal luncheon. I know this is a piece I can wear with or without a bump!

5. Finally, my favorite item purchased is my Treasure & Bond leopard booties. I have been wanting leopard booties for years now and have never been able to find the right pair. I figured I'd try them on when I was in the store, and they are must-have's. The perfect pointed toe, slight block heel, and Chelsea boot style make it the ultimate neutral shoe to make any outfit. I can't wait to wear these with tons of outfits from leggings with a long tee and moto jacket, to my fall dresses. A great statement piece! 

Check out my purchases below, and let me know what you loved or didn't love this year! Is there any piece you budgeted for that you just had to have?
