Vince Camuto Blouse

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

Okay, possibly the biggest underdog of the nordstrom sale?! Like where has this top been all my life? This top is under $50, amazing quality and comes in TONS of colors. It’s one of those tops you could pair with a pencil skirt for the office, cut off denim shorts on the weekend, or a high waisted skinny jean and heals for date night! So freaking flattering and TONS of ways to wear it. This will be an item you’ll having hanging in your closet year after year, because it will never go out of style!

Ripped high waisted jeans

Fit: runs slightly small. If in between sizes, go up a size. I’m wearing the 26

I was on the hunt to find the best under $50 jeans on nsale and IMO…these are IT! I tried the Levi’s and Topshop jeans and personally didn’t like how they fit at all. I LOVE this high waisted pair and tried them on with lots of different types of shoes and tops and feel like they are super versatile

Vince Camuto bootie

Fit: true to size. I’m wearing my normal size 8

This is an updated version of last year’s top selling nsale bootie and I LOVE this year’s pair even MORE. I bought last year’s VC bootie during the sale and literally wore them with EVERY outfit all year long…so I was in need of a new pair. I love the low cut on these, the block heel, and the color is perfect! (My color is ‘tortilla suede’).

Allsaints Leather Jacket

Fit: runs small. Wearing size 2

This leather jacket was actually my splurge item from the #nsale last year as well (in blush pink). I loved it and wore it COUNTLESS times last year, and fell in love with this berry color this year! The color is even more stunning in person and so flattering on every skintone. AllSaints makes some of the BEST leather jackets I have ever tried on: perfect fit, incredible quality, and the leather feels SO good. This is an investment piece, but one you will have and wear for years to come.

Chelsea28 Tiered Midi Dress

Fit: Runs slightly big. I’m wearing the XS

Another under $50 favorite from the #nsale! I bought this because I feel like finding dresses that are fall-friendly can be tricky. Especially if you’re looking for a dress to wear to a fall wedding, church, the office, etc! This one has such a feminine + flattering fit and I love the pockets! Its also one that you can easily dress down with white sneakers, or dress up with a nude pump!

BlankNYC Suede Moto jacket

Fit: TTS. Size up if you want to layer bulky sweaters underneath. I’m wearing size XS

I actually bought this suede moto jacket from the #Nsale a few years back and it’s definitely become a wardrobe staple for me. I’m so glad they brought it back to the sale this year in this perfect neutral color. The quality of this jacket is AMAZING, and the fact that you can get it for around $110 during this sale is SO GOOD.

SO MANY NEW FAVES in this outfit that I can’t wait to share with y’all!

Adidas Crewneck Sweatshirt

Fit: TTS. Wearing size small (sized up for a more oversized fit)

Another under $50 find from the sale I love and can’t believe is still in stock. This sweatshirt is perfect for lounging at home, throwing on going to and from the gym, or running errands! I think it has such a casual cool vibe and it’s also super comfy.

Spanx Faux Leather leggings

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

If I were to make a list of 5 things you should definitely by from the #nsale, these leggings would for sure make that list. I have had my spanx faux leather leggings for years now and still wear the heck out of them every fall and winter. They somehow magically look perfect with athletic outfits like this, but work equally as well for dressing up for a date night look. They are SO comfortable and so flattering and your mind will be blown at how much use you’ll get out of them! Definitely snag ’em now while you can get such a great price!

Converse Platform Sneakers

Fit: runs large. order a whole size down

This is the first pair of converse I’ve ever bought and when I saw them online I thought…I’m either going to majorly love those or absolutely hate them haha. When I got them home and tried on, I fell in LOVE! I tried them on with denim, leggings, and dresses and loved them with all of those! They are so comfy and under $50 during the sale! Definitely go down a half to a whole size because they run big!

Longchamp Expandable Tote

I have had this exact bag in this exact color combo on my wishlist for YEARS now so when I saw it included in the #nsale this year, it was a no brainer for me! First of all, just go check out the reviews on Nordstrom’s site about this bag…and then believe the hype haha. I’ve had my other longchamp tote for 3 years now and it’s still in perfect condition and I use it ALL. THE. TIME. This expandable tote is so nice because it can be big enough to be an overnight bag, or you can zip it up to make it more like an everyday tote size. The fabric is nylon so it’s really easy to wipe off and keep clean. If you travel or if you’re a mom or if you just have a lot of stuff you carry around haha…you will LOVE this bag! Full price it’s almost $200 and on the #nsale it is $119!

Halogen pocket cardigan

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

One of my top cardigan picks from the sale and under $50! Another one that has almost 400, 5 star reviews on Nordstrom’s site and for good reason. This cardigan is lightweight, so soft, and the perfect layering piece for fall that you can easily dress up or down. Pair with denim, over dresses, wear to the office, or with workout leggings. Super versatile and looks so chic!

BP lace trim Cami

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

This $24 tank sold out in two seconds last year and for good reason. I found myself wearing this ALL year long. Pairing under cardigans or oversized sweaters, or wearing by itself with skinny jeans or denim shorts! Great quality, not see through, and one you will probably want to grab in every color!

Rag & Bone skinny jeans

Fit: TTS. Wearing size 25

These might be my favorite jeans from the nsale this year! (I ordered a few more pair that I haven’t tried on yet, so jury is still out!). I LOVE the wash on these – the perfect medium wash with just a tiny bit of distressing. They’re also stretchy and comfy and SO flattering! Y’all will be seeing LOTS of these jeans this fall!

Vince Camuto bootie

Fit: true to size. I’m wearing my normal size 8

This is an updated version of last year’s top selling nsale bootie and I LOVE this year’s pair even MORE. I bought last year’s VC bootie during the sale and literally wore them with EVERY outfit all year long…so I was in need of a new pair.

Socialite Lace Trim Satin Body Suit

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

I could not believe this body suit was on sale for under $30! This will for sure be my go-to top for all date nights or going out looks this fall and winter! I love that’s sleek and sexy without being too revealing! So feminine and classy and will go with everything.

Mother High Waisted Skinny Jeans

Fit: TTS. If in between sizes though, I would suggest sizing up. Wearing size 26

One of my absolute favorite pair of jeans from the #nsale this year (they were the first pair I bought). I LOVE Mother jeans because I think they are super flattering, comfortable, and the quality is SO good, so you will be able to wear these for years to come! I love the semi-light wash, subtle distressing at the knees, and the raw hemline at the ankle. They are a little high waisted but nothing crazy! They hit me slightly below my belly button.

Allsaints Leather Jacket

Fit: runs small. Wearing size 2

This leather jacket was actually my splurge item from the #nsale last year as well (in blush pink). I loved it and wore it COUNTLESS times last year, and fell in love with this berry color this year! The color is even more stunning in person and so flattering on every skintone. AllSaints makes some of the BEST leather jackets I have ever tried on: perfect fit, incredible quality, and the leather feels SO good. This is an investment piece, but one you will have and wear for years to come.

Tory Burch convertible leather crossbody bag

This is one of two bags I bought on the nordstrom sale! I’m not gonna lie, when I saw this bag online…I wasn’t super impressed. But once I saw it in person I fell in LOVE. It is the PERFECT size and I love that it’s convertible so you can carry it so many different ways. I also love that it’s a bag you can dress up or down. Really classic and versatile and I’m tempted to buy it in brown as well.

Topshop ribbed cardigan

Fit: TTS but oversized fit – I’m wearing the size small

One of my favorite cardigans from the sale! I love the oversized slouchy look of it. It’s something I’d wear with denim, leggings, or over a dress! Not itchy at all and I love the pockets. I bought this in two colors! This is a great under $50 find!

All in Favor V-neck t-shirt

Fit: TTS (oversized fit). Wearing size XS

This $15 tee is a GREAT staple to add to your wardrobe! I bought it in 3 colors because I love the loose / drapey fit, and the fact that the V isn’t too low! So soft and not see through at all! (Even the white one!)

Spanx Faux Leather leggings

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

If I were to make a list of 5 things you should definitely by from the #nsale, these leggings would for sure make that list. I have had my spanx faux leather leggings for years now and still wear the heck out of them every fall and winter.

Definitely go down a half to a whole size because they run big!

Chelsea28 Oversized V-Neck Sweater

Fit: Oversized fit, but TTS. Wearing size XS

I just bought this sweater this week from the sale and couldn’t WAIT to share with you guys! It is perfectly oversized – not too baggy, and it looks great with a little front tuck, or not tucked at all. SO soft, lightweight, and not see through! Under $50 and I definitely want to buy in a second color!

Frame straight leg jeans

Fit: TTS. Wearing size 26 but they are slightly big on me! Ordering the 25 when they come back in stock

Okay the picture of these jeans online do not look like the jeans in person haha I’m not sure where the miscommunication took place. These jeans are SO DANG CUTE and so comfortable too! I love the light wash, frayed hem, and relaxed fit! Frame jeans are also AMAZING quality so you will have these for years to come!

March Fisher Oshay Bootie

Fit: TTS.

These are my favorite booties from the sale this year! I LOVE the taller shaft on these and the pointed toe! The color you are seeing in these photos is ‘cloud suede’. But, I knew I will be wearing these so much that I bought them in “cognac suede” as well. They look so pretty with both denim and dresses and I think they’re very comfortable!

Nike Crewneck Sweatshirt

Fit: TTS. I sized up to a small for an oversized fit

I feel like I’ve raved about this nike sweatshirt hundreds of times throughout the sale already haha so I won’t re-invent the wheel here! BASICALLY one of my top purchases from the sale so I bought in two colors! SO dang soft, looks adorable with leggings or shorts, and I basically haven’t taken it off since I bought it!

Alo airlift leggings

Fit: TTS. Wearing XS

Such a flattering pair of leggings that are so cute with athleisure outfits, but also great for working out! I have these in several colors and highly recommend buying them on sale!

Nike Air Max 270 Sneakers

Fit: Runs small. I suggest going up a half size

Love the look and fit of these nike sneakers! I personally don’t run in them but I’ve worn them for strength training workouts and they were great. I mainly love them for athleisure outfits, going for walks, and everyday errands!

shoes + accessories I’m loving

More of my top picks that are still fully stocked!

BP print long sleeve dress

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

Eeks! One of my favorite under $50 finds from the entire sale! This $32 dress will be a go-to for you this fall! Pair it with sneakers, booties, knee high boots or heels for a really casual everyday, or dressed up date night look. I bought in two prints and can’t love it enough. ALSO if you are expecting…this dress is definitely pump friendly!

Vince Camuto derika boots

Fit: TTS. Wearing my normal size 8

Last year, I did not buy one single pair of tall boots because I didn’t love any of the options. This year…I LOVED this option. I love the pointed toe and semi-slouchy fit. They look adorable with both dresses and skinny jeans and I know I will get TONS of use out of them! Tempted to buy in a second color because I love them so much!

BP open stitch cardigan

Fit: TTS. Wearing size small because I wanted it to fit a little loose!

Another favorite under $50 find. This will be a go-to for you all fall long, that you can throw on over ANY outfit. I buy a BP caridgan every year during the #nsale and every year, I find myself wearing it constantly throughout the entire year. You might want to grab in more than one color!

PIN IT

Madewell Camo Jacket

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

The PERFECT everyday lightweight jacket for fall! Madewell’s dispatch jacket has been a wardrobe staple of mine for about 5 years now. So When I saw they released it in a camo version, on CRAZY sale, I knew I had to have it! This jacket is lightweight, flattering fit, and has such a classic style that allows you to wear it year after year. I wear mine with jeans, black denim. leggings, dresses etc! The perfect everyday chic layer to add to any outfit.

PIN IT

BDG crop sweater

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

One of my favorite under $50 finds from the #nsale. It’s a crop length but not too cropped at all! Looks great with high waisted jeans and super soft.

Topshop belted faux leather shorts

Fit: TTS. Wearing size 2

Okay y’all. Believe me when I say: every single one of you NEEDS to buy these shorts! First of all, they are $35.90 on sale! Second…idk if any of you guys feel this way but. The few times I “go out” with the girls, or have an event where I want to look chic yet sexy, or a nice date night…my wardrobe is lacking. These shorts are the EXACT item my wardrobe was missing. They are high waisted and SO flattering on any body type and so easy to dress up or dress down! You can wear them with boots or heels! Not too short but still elongate your legs. Literally, you need these!

Madewell Kent Cardigan

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

This is a cardigan that sells out EVERY year, and rightfully so. I have this cardigan in at least 4 colors now…I wore it on our flight to Italy 4 years ago, throw it on over workout clothes, pair it with denim, throw it on over dresses…you will wear this CONSTANTLY. SO insanely soft and the quality is 10/10. I loved this olive green color for fall.

BP lace trim Cami

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

This $24 tank sold out in two seconds last year and for good reason. I found myself wearing this ALL year long. Pairing under cardigans or oversized sweaters, or wearing by itself with skinny jeans or denim shorts! Great quality, not see through, and one you will probably want to grab in every color!

AG prima jeans

Fit: TTS. Wearing size 25

These were my favorite dark wash skinny jeans from the sale, and I tried on about 5 pair this past Tuesday! These are SO stretchy and comfortable, and I love the crop length because it allows you to wear booties with a taller shaft! Everyone need a good pair of dark wash, non-distressed denim in their fall wardrobe and I highly recommend this pair!

Steve Madden mules

Fit: TTS. But, if in between sizes, go up a half size

These mules will 100% be an item that sells out QUICK. On sale they are under $50 which is NUTS because they look and feel SO nice! Mules are very hit or miss for me but this pair is FOR SURE a hit! Love how they look with skinny or boyfriend jeans and just add so much to any outfit!

Nordstrom’s site says to go up a half size. I got my normal size 8 though and they fit fine!

Tory Burch striped crossbody bag

This is one of two bags I bought from the sale this year and fell in LOVE with it from the moment I saw it online! Camel / black / white is my absolute favorite color combo and I love how it pairs with any fall outfit (but you could definitely wear it year round!). The small size also makes it the perfect date night or going out type of bag!

 

Madewell high waist skinny jeans

Fit: TTS. If in between sizes though, go up a size. I’m wearing the 25 and they are pretty tight on me!

I tried on probably 4 of the black pair of jeans included in nsale this year, and this pair was by far my favorite. (No surprise! I love Madewell jeans). I love the button front and the high waist, and think they are really flattering. A great black skinny jean that can be dressed up or down.

 

The North Face Parka

This parka is an investment piece but (especially if you live somewhere cold) worth EVERY PENNY. I’ve had this jacket on my wishlist for several years now, so I was thrilled to see it on the #nsale! SO freakin warm but still has a feminine and flattering fit. I will for sure wear this even in Texas winters, but also when we go to Colorado and Montana this winter! I’m wearing the size small. it comes in 3 colors and I def recommend buying now while it’s on major sale!

Zella Fleece Pullover

Fit: TTS (slightly oversized). Wearing size XS

This is one of my top purchases from the nsale and under $50. I almost bought a similar north face jacket but then I saw this one for a fraction of the price and fell in LOVE. SO soft, has pockets, and this color is gorgeous! I’m wearing the size XS! Shocked this is still in stock!

The North Face Insulated Quilted Jacket

Fit: TTS. Wearing size XS

A similar jacket was available on the #nsale last year and sold out almost right away and I was sad I didn’t get it. I bought this one on the first day this year and I LOVE it so much! This jacket is the perfect fall / winter layer that doesn’t look too bulky, but will still keep you warm! I’ll for sure be wearing this to and from the gym, as well as with any athleisure outfits.

Happy Shopping!
