Your Nordstrom Anniversary Sales Guide!

Another year, another amazing Nordstrom Anniversary sale! To be honest, I loved a lot of the pieces this year! Less itchy sweaters, an amazing shoe selection, some great basics and SO many cute jackets. I was only a little disappointed in the dress selection and bags. Other than that, we tried on some super adorable pieces!

I’ve included some of my collages and our sister try on is more towards the bottom of this post. WARNING: it’s a long post but every single piece that we tried on is described below each picture with both of our sizing details. I hope you find it helpful! HAPPY SHOPPING!
