More #NSale Try-Ons & Outfit Ideas

Okay, this may be the last post I do with a bunch of random Nordstrom Anniversary Sale try-ons, but I’m not making any promises! I do have some more things coming, but not a lot… At least, I don’t think I have a lot more coming. I have totally lost track at this point. (And no, I do NOT keep it all… I am just trying to give you as many options and as much information as I can.)

As a reminder, I’ve linked all my 2022 #NSale coverage at the top of the blog, and you can bookmark that page for easy reference. I also have a Nordstrom Looks page with a bunch of easy-to-shop #NSale outfits from all my try-ons.

Finally, be sure you’re signed up for my All Things#NSale email list where I send sneak peeks and exclusive #NSale coverage that I don’t post anywhere else. It includes a fall capsule wardrobe from the #NSale, to help you identify versatile staples from the sale and narrow down what to buy.

Okay, with all of the housekeeping out of the way, let’s dive in!

2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-On Haul

SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops, a 28 or 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. I’ll do my best to guide you on sizing, but if in doubt, order two sizes because popular items don’t stay in stock for long.

A Splurge-Worthy Dress Styled 4 Ways

outfit details

Vince Scoop Neck Tank Dress (S) // I’ve showed you this dress before, but the fitting room pictures weren’t very good, and it is one of my favorite #NSale purchases so far! In fact, I wore it to dinner on Saturday night with gold sandals, as seen here. I also wanted to show you a few other ways to style it.

This dress runs true to size, and the fabric is soft and flowy and has such a nice drape. I don’t wear a lot of fuller skirts, but I think the crinkled fabric is so fun, and it has such nice movement to it. The tank style keeps it slightly more casual and allows you to dress it up or down.

Sam Edelman Kia (not #NSale; option: Sam Edelman Kit) // I’m wearing the Kia sandal, but the Kit is part of the #NSale, and it’s very similar and even comes in the same Gold Leaf. I found them true to size; I’m wearing the 8.

You can take this dress down a notch with beige flat sandals, like this. A colored sandal would be fun too — maybe that persimmon.

Or you can really dress it down with sneakers. I would have never thought to pair this dress with sneakers, except that’s how it’s styled on the Nordstrom website, so I thought I’d try it. First I tried it with my P448 sneakers and a denim jacket.

P448 John Sneakers (39) // I have these shoes in several color ways, and I love them. They’re so cushiony and soft inside, the quality is top notch (they’re made in Italy), and they have such fun details. The pair in this year’s #NSale is a great neutral that will go with everything this fall.

KUT from the Kloth Jacqueline Denim Jacket (S) //This jacket is not part of the #NSale, but it is at Nordstrom. It has a slightly oversized, boxy fit, and it runs true to size.

I also tried it with my Vejas and a leather bomber.

Veja Esplar (39; not #NSale) // I’ve had these sneakers for a couple of years, and I don’t wear them a ton, but sometimes they add just the right casual/cool touch to an outfit. They look great with black jeans and sweaters or sweatshirts in the fall/winter.

Treasure & Bond Leather Bomber (S) // This jacket is so fun, and it’s a great price for genuine leather. I love my moto jackets, but I feel like the bomber looks a little fresher for the 2022 fall season, and this one has a removable sherpa collar so you can get two different styles out of it. I’ll show it with some more casual outfits below. It’s true to size with a generous fit. I have no problem wearing it over sweaters.


The Perfect Fall Wedding Guest Dress

shop the look

Vince V-Neck Pleated Dress (S) // This is similar to the black dress, but it’s dressier. When I first pulled it out of the box, I didn’t think I was going to like it, but once I had it on, it skims the body so beautifully. I love that v-neck and the way it’s designed with the tie waist that you can adjust to fit exactly how you want it.

In fact, I could tie it a bit tighter, I think. It’s also a really unique color — sort of a combination of grey, blue, and green. It’s a splurge, but it would make a gorgeous wedding guest dress this summer or fall. This dress runs true to size, or a little big. I’m wearing the small.


Legs for Days! The Jeans I’ll Be Wearing This Fall

AG Farrah Bootcut (28) // These are my new favorite #NSale jeans! I still love the Mother Raw Hem Flare Jeans but these are slightly more casual, and also fully stocked! My biggest caveat is they have a suuuuper high rise, so you have to be okay with that, but the fabric is amazingly soft and comfortable, and I love the wash and the distressing. They’re true to size, or size down if in between.

Veronica Beard Leeland Pointed Toe Chelsea Boot (8) // I ordered these booties, thinking I might want a dressier style with a stiletto heel in my fall/winter wardrobe. They’re a gorgeous leather, but I’m not sure I’ll wear them enough to get a good cost per wear. They have a 2 1/2″ heel, and they run true to size.


Since the Marc Fisher Urmi is slightly more casual and I’ve already decided to keep them, I swapped them with the Veronica Beard booties to compare how they work with these jeans.

I actually think that extra inch in the heel looks better with these jeans, and you can’t see the stiletto anyway, so I’m not sure it’s necessary to keep the Veronica Beard boot unless I find other jeans I want to wear them with. Here’s a closer view, so you can see the details.

Marc Fisher Urmi Pointed Toe Bootie (8.5) // This is such a nice classic pointy toe boot for wearing with dresses or jeans that I ended up bringing them home in both black and ivory. They have a 3″ block heel and a 4″ shaft with a pretty notched topline. These boots are a good price for the quality and very comfortable. I sized up half for a little more room in the toe box.


Sweater Weather

Eileen Fisher Bouclé Sweater (XS) // I had high hopes for this sweater, but it’s a tad short on me. If you’re a little shorter than me, it might be really cute. In fact, it looked great on another member of my JLS Insiders Facebook Group. I recommend sizing down in Eileen Fisher sweaters (and dresses, for that matter.)


Vince sweaters are usually my favorite part of the #NSale, but this year I’ve been pretty disappointed. The quality isn’t as good as it used to be, for one thing, and I don’t love the styles.

Lattice Cable Knit Wool & Alpaca Blend Sweater (S) // This was the one I was most looking forward to trying, even though I knew it would be longer than I prefer. I do like the color, the cable knit pattern and the deep v-neck in a contrasting ribbed knit. However, it’s kind of long and schlumpy, and a little bulky for a front tuck.

Plus, the fabric is thin and made of 40% alpaca, 30% wool, 30% nylon. I miss the 100% cashmere Vince sweaters of yesteryear… or at least some type of cashmere/wool blend.

Before I gave up on the sweater, I wanted to see how it would look with a straighter, ankle-length jean. I love the bootcut, but they require a heel, and my life is just not that exciting. A casual sweater like this, I will most likely wear with ankle-length straight or flare leg jeans.

For $254, its’s a no for me, dawg. By contrast, look at this one…

Nordstrom Signature Cable Crewneck (S; no link) // You really have to be able to feel this sweater to fully get the difference in quality. It is so luxe and thick and soft… I mean, I would sleep in this sweater! Plus, I really like the shape and the length, and even though I typically prefer a v-neck to a crewneck, I like this so much better than the Vince.

Sadly, this sweater has never shown up online. I really thought it would, but I’ve only seen it in my local store. I don’t remember Nordstrom ever carrying #NSale merch in store that is not also online, so maybe it’s a glitch? AT any rate, I’m showing it again to illustrate the difference in the two. Not only does it look better on, it’s 100% cashmere, and so thick and dense and soft. It was the same price, but so much better quality, in my opinion.

Mother Dazzler (29) // I have a pair of Mother Dazzlers in a different wash, so I ordered these just to show you. I will return these because mine work just as well, but I do really like this wash. It’s a nice, versatile medium blue without any distressing other than the raw hem. They’re an ankle-length for the average woman, but you can cut them if you want them shorter. They’re almost too long for me.

P448 John Sneakers (39) // I have these shoes in several color ways, and I love them. They’re so cushiony and soft inside, the quality is top notch (they’re made in Italy), and they have such fun details. The pair in this year’s #NSale is a great neutral that will go with everything this fall.


Vince Side Slit V-Neck Tunic (S) // Speaking of my disappointment in the Vince sweater selection this year, this one is also too thin and too long and frumpy for the hefty price tag… in my humble opinion. Unfortunately, I forgot to get a picture with it not front-tucked, but you can see it in action on my IG Story. (It is saved to the Try-Ons highlight.)

AG Farrah Bootcut (28) // These jeans are soft and comfortable, and I love the wash and the distressing. My biggest caveat is they have a suuuuper high rise, so you have to be okay with that, but the fabric is amazingly, and I love the fit. They’re true to size, or size down if in between.

Sam Edelman Agnes Western Boot in Warm Copper (8) // These boots are remarkably comfortable, and the western details are very on trend this season. I love this gorgeous shade of warm copper, but they also come in black suede and sesame suede. They have a 3 1/2″ heel and a 5 3/4″ shaft, and they run true to size.


More On Denim & Boot Pairings

Here’s a better look at the AG Farrah Bootcut with the Sam Edelman Agnes Western Boot… this is such a good pairing. It appears a 3″ or 3 1/2″ heel is going to work best with these jeans unless I decide to cut them.

Nordstrom Signature Cashmere V-Neck Sweater (S) // I have this in lilac from last winter, so I was super excited to see the camel version in this year’s #NSale. This sweater is super soft and luxe, and it has such a nice drape. It’s 100% cashmere, which is hard to find these days; so many are blended with wool or cotton. The length is 24 1/2″, and it runs true to size with a relaxed fit.

AG Farrah Bootcut (28) // These jeans are soft and comfortable, and I love the wash and the distressing. My biggest caveat is they have a suuuuper high rise, so you have to be okay with that, but the fabric is amazingly, and I love the fit. They’re true to size, or size down if in between.

Sam Edelman Agnes Western Boot in Warm Copper (8) // These boots are remarkably comfortable, and the western details are very on trend this season. I love this gorgeous shade of warm copper, but they also come in black suede and sesame suede. They have a 3 1/2″ heel and a 5 3/4″ shaft, and they run true to size.


The It Jacket for Fall 2022

And here’s that leather bomber again. I love it with this outfit. I’m wearing it above with shearling collar, and below without.

Treasure & Bond Leather Bomber (S) // This jacket is so fun, and it’s a great price for genuine leather. I love my moto jackets, but I feel like the bomber looks a little fresher for the 2022 fall season, and this one has a removable sherpa collar so you can get two different styles out of it. I’ll show it with some more casual outfits below. It’s true to size with a generous fit. I have no problem wearing it over sweaters.


I wondered what the AG Farrah Bootcut would look like with a lower heel, so I tried them with the Vince Kaye…

Nordstrom Signature Bouclé Cashmere Cardigan (S) // I already shared this in my Fitting Room Try-Ons, but I wanted to give it another chance. I thought I might like it better with a t-shirt, and I do, but I’m still not in love with it. Don’t get me wrong, the quality is amazing, and the unique color blocking pattern is really fun, but I just don’t think I’ll reach for it.

Caslon Rounded V-Neck Tee (S) // This tee has been around for years, and it continues to be one of the best basic white t-shirts for the price point. It’s on the thinner side, but not so thin you need a cami underneath, and it has a subtle slub texture to it. The rounded v-neck is flattering, and it looks great worn alone or layered under a cardigan or jacket. It’s true to size, or size down if in between. I always buy the small so I can throw it in the dryer.

The only time it goes on sale us during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so definitely grab it now while you can. The white is versatile, but it also comes in a bunch of other colors, including a really good heather grey. I also like the Rust Spice, which is new this year.

AG Farrah Bootcut (28) // I was wondering how these jeans would work with a lower heel, and they’re okay, but I don’t like how they buckle on top of the boot. I know we used to wear them that way, but it’s fresher and more modern to wear them just a bit shorter. I might trim off a half inch or an inch to make them more versatile.

Vince Kaye Block Heel Bootie (8) // These boots have a 2 1/2″ heel, and the squared-off toe and architectural block heel are right on trend, They’re more of a splurge, but the quality is amazing, as you would expect from Vince. They run true to size or maybe a bit big. The 8 is plenty roomy on me.


Classic Black Denim for Fall

AG Mari High Waist Ankle Slim Straight Leg Jeans (28) // This is a great pair of classic black slim straight leg jeans. The 29″ inseam is closer to full-length than ankle, but of course, that depends on your height and body type. They have a 29″ inseam with a 14″ leg opening and an 11″ front rise; and they’re made of 98% cotton, 2% polyurethane. They fit true to size, or size down if in between.

STYLE TIP: I always get requests for black jeans that don’t fade. I’ve had AG black denim in other styles, and it doesn’t fade, even after years of washing and wearing. (I always hang to dry.) However, the black dye does transfer to lighter surfaces, like your hands and car seats, so just be aware of that. It’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for jeans that look this good and keep their color.

Eileen Fisher Bouclé Sweater (XS) // I was hoping I might like this Eileen Fisher sweater from earlier in this post better styled into an all black outfit, but it still looks awkwardly short on me. If you’re a little shorter than me, it might be really cute. I recommend sizing down in Eileen Fisher sweaters (and dresses, for that matter.) The XS is the right size, it just doesn’t flatter me.

Michael Kors Cleo Slingback Sandals (8) // These shoes are going to be my go-to heels this fall, I’m calling it now. I have the black and the camel, and I think I’ll keep both. They’re remarkably comfortable for a 4″ heel, and I also love the asymmetric styling. They’re true to size.


Date Night Vibes

Reiss Carly Asymmetrical Top (M) // This is a really fun “going out” top for fall. Unfortunately, it sold out. If it gets restocked and you order, definitely size up. It runs small and has a body-con fit.

AG Mari High Waist Ankle Slim Straight Leg Jeans (28) // This is a great pair of classic black slim straight leg jeans. They have a 29″ inseam with a 14″ leg opening and an 11″ front rise; and they’re made of 98% cotton, 2% polyurethane. The black wash does not fade, and they fit true to size, or size down if in between.

Michael Kors Cleo Slingback Sandals (8) // These shoes are going to be my go-to heels this fall, I’m calling it now. I have the black and the camel, and I think I’ll keep both. They’re remarkably comfortable for a 4″ heel, and I also love the asymmetric styling. They’re true to size.

I was curious how these AG Mari jeans would work with the AllSaints Boots, so I did a quick shoe swap… It works, but I think I’ll prefer a boot that isn’t quite as chunky with these slim-fitting jeans.

AllSaints Lenora Bootie (9) // These boots are gorgeous, and the quality is excellent They have a 2″ heel and a 5 1/2″ shaft, and the snipped toe and Cuban heel give them a subtle western flair. Definitely size up, if ordering. I needed the 9.


I also love this look for late summer/early fall date nights and girls nights out.

Theory Elegant Rib Halter Top (S) // This sweater is pricey for rayon/nylon, but it looks and feels like really nice quality. I also like that I can wear it right now by itself with jeans and heels, and later with a blazer or moto jacket on top.

All too often, this type of stretchy sweater clings to every lump and bump, but this one glides over the body and is so flattering. I ordered the small and the medium, but the small fits with plenty of wiggle room.

AG Farrah Bootcut (28) // These jeans are soft and comfortable, and I love the wash and the distressing. My biggest caveat is they have a suuuuper high rise, so you have to be okay with that, but the fabric is amazingly, and I love the fit. They’re true to size, or size down if in between. I love the length with these sandals.

Michael Kors Cleo Slingback Sandals (8) // These shoes are going to be my go-to heels this fall, I’m calling it now. I have the black and the camel, and I think I’ll keep both. They’re remarkably comfortable for a 4″ heel, and I also love the asymmetric styling. They’re true to size.


Halogen Racerback Cami in Pink Rosebud (S) // This is a fun little cami to have for layering fall or wearing alone this summer. It also comes in ivory, black, and olive. (I love the olive for fall!) Fit is true to size.

AG Farrah Bootcut (28) // These jeans are also perfect for wearing with platform sandals for summertime.

Dolce Vita Nilton (8; not #NSale) // These sandals aren’t part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but they’re really good for summer with all the flares in the #NSale.


You Can’t Win ‘Em All…

Halogen Twist Neck Sleeveless Top  (S) // I thought I’d love this top, but it’s very thin and body-con, and it looks like it’s choking me. I could maybe try the medium in a darker color, but this one is in my returns pile.

Spanx Perfect Black Pants (M) // I have these from last year, and they’re really good pants as long as you don’t mind the legging-like fit. They hold in all the fluff, and they have a 26″ inseam with a slit hem.

Michael Kors Cleo Slingback Sandals (8) // These shoes are going to be my go-to heels this fall, I’m calling it now. I have the black and the camel, and I think I’ll keep both. They’re remarkably comfortable for a 4″ heel, and I also love the asymmetric styling. They’re true to size.


The Moto Jacket To Have In Multiple Colors

KUT from the Kloth Milana Faux Suede Moto Jacket (S) // This soft and stretchy suede moto jacket is the perfect topper for all your fall looks! It comes in four colors, and I’m thinking of going back for the taupe. Fit is TTS.

Nordstrom Moonlight Layer Tank (S) // This is a nice base layer for under jackets and cardigans. It’s true to size with a body-con fit.

Spanx Perfect Black Pants (M) // These skinny pants hold in all the fluff, and they have a 26″ inseam with a slit hem.

Michael Kors Cleo Slingback Sandals (8) // These shoes are going to be my go-to heels this fall, I’m calling it now. I have the black and the camel, and I think I’ll keep both. They’re remarkably comfortable for a 4″ heel, and I also love the asymmetric styling. They’re true to size.


I also wanted to see this look with booties, so I threw on the Veronica Beard… This works, very sleek, but I think I prefer a chunkier heel to balance out the volume on top.

Veronica Beard Leeland (8) // I ordered these booties thinking I might want a dressier style with a stiletto heel in my fall/winter wardrobe, and they’re a gorgeous leather, but I’m not sure I’ll wear them enough to get a good cost per wear. They’re true to size.


I decided to try the Marc Fisher boots to compare how they fit with these pants…

Marc Fisher Urmi Pointed Toe Bootie (8.5) // This is such a nice classic pointy toe boot for wearing with dresses or jeans. They have a 3″ block heel and a 4″ shaft, with a pretty notched topline. These boots are a good price for the quality and very comfortable. I sized up half for a little more room in the toe box.


Almost the Perfect Swing Dress

Eileen Fisher Sleeveless V-Neck Dress (XS) // I have a similar Eileen Fisher dress I purchased at the 2019 #NSale, and I wear it at least a couple times a month in the summertime, so I was happy to see this one pop up this year in several colors. The quality is exceptional quality, and this is a classic style you can wear for years. I just wish the v-neck were a tad deeper. Be sure to size down, if ordering. All Eileen Fisher dresses run big.

P448 John Sneakers (39) // I have these shoes in several color ways, and I love them. They’re so cushiony and soft inside, the quality is top notch (they’re made in Italy), and they have such fun details. The pair in this year’s #NSale is a great neutral that will go with everything this fall.


Work Wear for Fall

Caslon Textured Knit Tie Waist Cotton Blend Midi Dress (S) // I showed this dress before, but I wanted a better pictures, so I put it on again in my room. Still love it! I can hardly ever wear tie waist dresses, but this one fits perfectly. I like the thick, textured knit, and the cut of the sleeves. It will be perfect for transition season. It’s true to size, or size up for a more relaxed fit.

Michael Kors Cleo Slingback Sandals (8) // These shoes are going to be my go-to heels this fall, I’m calling it now. I have the black and the camel, and I think I’ll keep both. They’re remarkably comfortable for a 4″ heel, and I also love the asymmetric styling. They’re true to size.

Here it is with boots…

Marc Fisher Urmi Pointed Toe Bootie (8.5) // This is such a nice classic pointy toe boot for wearing with dresses or jeans that I ended up bringing them home in both black and ivory. They have a 3″ block heel and a 4″ shaft, with a pretty notched topline. These boots are a good price for the quality and very comfortable. I sized up half for a little more room in the toe box.


Sideline Chic

Treasure & Bond Long Sleeve Thermal Knit Top (M) // I love this thermal top! It’s so easy to throw on with jeans and boots or sneakers. I can see myself wearing this a ton this fall. It will also layer nicely under a utility jackets or leather bomber. It runs a little small. I had the olive in a small, but I ordered this black in a medium to compare, and I definitely like the fit of the medium better. I also love this black with the subtle contrast in the cuffs.

Pistola Monroe High Waist Slim Cigarette Jeans (29) // This is a new denim brand to me, and I like it a lot. They have a lot of styles and washes, and this is a straight crop style with raw step hem. The measurements are 26 1/2″ inseam, 14″ leg opening, 10 3/4″ front rise; and the fabric is 80% cotton, 9% rayon, 9% polyester, 2% elastane. Fit is TTS or size up if in between.

P448 John Sneakers (39) // I have these shoes in several color ways, and I love them. They’re so cushiony and soft inside, the quality is top notch (they’re made in Italy), and they have such fun details. The pair in this year’s #NSale is a great neutral that will go with everything this fall.

Here’s how I’ll wear it when the weather gets colder…

Barbour Shaw Lightweight Puffer Jacket (6) // I have this from last year and I’m so happy to see it back again. It’s lightweight and comfortable and very nice quality. This zinc color is so pretty, but it also comes in a more traditional black.

I also like it with the leather bomber…

Treasure & Bond Leather Bomber (S) // This jacket is so fun, and it’s a great price for genuine leather. I love my moto jackets, but I feel like the bomber looks a little fresher for the 2022 fall season, and this one has a removable sherpa collar so you can get two different styles out of it. I’ll show it with some more casual outfits below. It’s true to size with a generous fit. I have no problem wearing it over sweaters.

Swap the sneakers out for boots for an edgier look.

AllSaints Lenora Bootie (9) // These boots are gorgeous, and the quality is excellent They have a 2″ heel and a 5 1/2″ shaft, and the snipped toe and Cuban heel give them a subtle western flair. Definitely size up, if ordering. I needed the 9.


Fall Mom Uniform

Madewell Lyle Rib Henley Sweater (S) // This is a cute sweater for the price point. It’s a little long, but it looks good with a front tuck. It’s true to size.

Pistola Monroe High Waist Slim Cigarette Jeans (29) // This is a new denim brand to me, and I like it a lot. They have a lot of styles and washes, and this is a straight crop style with raw step hem. The measurements are 26 1/2″ inseam, 14″ leg opening, 10 3/4″ front rise; and the fabric is 80% cotton, 9% rayon, 9% polyester, 2% elastane. Fit is TTS or size up if in between.

rag & bone retro sneaker (38.5) // These sneakers finally came, and I really like the retro styling. They’re also very comfortable and have a good amount of support. I’d say they run true to size. I thought I needed a half size up, and I actually ordered the 39 in another color, but now that I have tried these and walked around in the, the 38.5 seems about right.


Now, this is a different look for me…

Spanx Stretch Twill Wide Leg Crop Pants c/o (M) // Spanx sent me these pants to review, so I wanted to be sure to include them. They aren’t something I would have picked out, but they’re actually kind of fun for a change!

KUT from the Kloth Jacqueline (S; not #NSale) // This is a really good denim jacket, a little longer and boxier, which is on trend right now. It’s true to size.

Caslon Rounded V-Neck Tee (S) // This tee has been around for years, and it continues to be one of the best basic white t-shirts for the price point. It’s on the thinner side, but not so thin you need a cami underneath, and it has a subtle slub texture to it. The rounded v-neck is flattering, and it looks great worn alone or layered under a cardigan or jacket. It’s true to size, or size down if in between. I always buy the small so I can throw it in the dryer.

Vince Camuto Molisana Wedge Espadrilles (8; not #NSale) // These are not part of the sale, but they’re really good sandals and very comfortable. They’re true to size, or size up if in between. They’re good for narrower feet.


Cozy, but make it chic!

Vince Cardigan Coat (S) // This is more coat than cardigan, but it’s a cozy and high quality fabric, and I really wanted to love it. Unfortunately, the hem doesn’t line up right.

Otherwise, the lines are really nice. I’d like to see if I can try a different one. Maybe it’s just a glitch with this coat and not all of the coats.


Clogs: The Perfect Fall Transition Shoe

Paige Robbie Studded Clog (7.5) // Clogs are having a moment this fall, and these are gorgeous. They have a lot of support in the footbed, and they’re molded to hold your foot in place. Plus I love the ridged trapunto stitching. They’re true to size.

Paige Paloma Mule (7.5) // I don’t love the fabric on these; it looks cheap to me, and at that price, it shouldn’t. I also found them hard to walk in. It’s a shame because I love the idea of them, and they are perfect with this sweater. Unfortunately, they’re going back.


Splurge-Worthy Fall Transition Sweater

shop the look

Frame Shrunken Silk Blend Cardigan (M) // This is a gorgeous, high quality sweater, and I love the blend of silk and cotton. The chocolate brown is perfect for the fall season, and the cropped cardigan is very much on trend. It’s pricey, but the quality is there. It’s ideal for ladies who live in warmer climates where you can wear short sleeves all the way through the fall.

Whew! That is a wrap. Please pardon any typos or incoherent sentences. It’s been a race to the finish to get this up and out to you all tonight! I’m happy to answer any questions about sizing or fit in the comments.

28 thoughts on “More #NSale Try-Ons & Outfit Ideas

  1. Thanks for this post! I took pictures of several items that I want to check out later today. I really like the leather bomber jacket, but it just doesn’t get that cold down here, and I’m so hot natured, that I can’t justify the cost. Maybe I can find a bomber jacket in a different fabric that will suit my lifestyle and our climate.

    1. Good idea! I like the twill bombers too, and I have a silky one from Evereve that is more versatile. I’ll keep an eye out as more retailers put out fall styles.

  2. Sooooo comprehensive! Thanks for your hard work. I’ve put the Eileen Fisher dress in my cart, finally! I am heading to England this September and I need a dress that will travel well and can be worn many ways. Cheers to you! ~Katie, Spokane, WA

  3. I love so many things! The MK sandals looked “meh” when I saw just a picture of them alone, but actually on a foot…they are stunning! My other favorite is the Spanx twill wide leg cropped pants. Absolutely fabulous.

  4. Thanks for all the great posts and love the Vince dress on you! Has anyone ever purchased or tried on the Pikolino booties – looking at those and the All Saints – really need a pair of black booties with a smaller heel. The only black boots I have with smaller heels are the Aquatalias and Cole Hahn/Nike which are both tall boots. I will say that the Cole Hahns were the most comfortable boots ever created! Loved them so much, my daughter and I bought them in black and brown.

  5. The gray Vince dress is beautiful- you look great in it. Can you recommend a dressy cardigan or jacket that would pair with the dress if wearing to a wedding for those who don’t want to have bare arms?

  6. I love this flare jeans- but I know they will be too short for me. Do designers ever sell jeans in a “tall” or “long” length. I think I would need a 34” inseam and the ones you are wearing are I my a 32”. I also love how you’ve shown the Sherpa bomber jacket. So much cuter on you than on the model. Very tempted to check that one out now…

  7. You look great in all the outfits, love the dress you wore for your night out on you; also love the Rag&Bone sneaker kind of a throwback to some Puma’s I used to have. You look so tiny in all the photos! I, too like the bomber jacket but don’t know how much wear I would get out of it in eastern NC.

  8. Wow!!!!!! That post was a lot of work. I don’t know how you fit it all in. Great help, as you do all the work for us. I keep clicking on items I’m thinking about and already sold out. I don’t get to shop until Wed. Oh well, nothing I can’t live without. I’m just not in to the pointed toe, high heel booties for my life style. It would even be too dressy for our church. Thanks for sharing so much.

    1. Yeah, at the end of the day, it’s just clothes. 🙂 But I do think you’ll see some restocks for the 15th, and a lot of things often come back around after the sale is over. Sometimes they are even less expensive later in the fall.

    1. LOL, tempting! If I knew I had somewhere to wear the grey one, I would. I almost wore it to dinner last weekend, but it seemed a bit much, and I do think the black looked more appopriate.

  9. The AG bootcuts look fantastic, but would likely be too long for me since I am starting to dislike wearing heels over 1.5-2 inches (it happens!). You mentioned cutting yours…do you think the bootcut will be affected/too wide then? (Straight legs are so much easier to style!)

  10. Thank you for this post! Also, I read all of your comments on the items and I appreciate that you go into detail on how each item fits. That is information I find most helpful and not a lot of content sites go into the real deal info. (It’s pretty and has a ruffle…well isn’t much help)… Let me say, you look so much better modeling these fashions than the models in the photos. Are you keeping the P448 sneakers from this post?

  11. Love both the Vince dresses on you! I notice that the gray one in your photo is very different from the picture on Nordstrom’s site. Which one is closer to the true color? Thank you! Your reviews and suggestions are very helpful.

    1. It’s hard to say. It’s an odd color. I thought it was gray but it came in the mail and I opened it at night and it almost looked forest green. I thought they sent me the wrong color. The next day, it looked more murky gray/green/blue. Tide Pool is a good name for it. It’s really pretty tho.
