#NSALE Purchases + Sizing!

Happy Sunday, everyone! A lot of you have asked me what exactly I bought at the Nordstrom Sale and how it all fits. My site, unfortunately, crashed yesterday so I wasn’t able to post this or choose a winner for the Nordstrom giveaway. I’ll announce the winner at the end of this post! Also, I’m actually very thankful (in a weird way) that my site crashed. It crashed because I’ve been getting so many great visitors daily that my blog couldn’t handle all of you! I’m so grateful for each and every one of you that stops by on the daily to read my posts, corny jokes and daily happenings. It means more than you’ll ever know and, honestly, it’s how/why this blog is up and running! I hope that we can continue to grow a friendship, whether it’s through comments, emails, in person or at events, because I love all of you!

Anyways, no more mushy stuff… you can see below to see all of my purchases from the Nordstrom Sale, the sizing and my review! I hope you all have been having a beautiful weekend!nsale-1Flats


These flats are great! I got them in both pale pink and dark red. They’re such a great price and look like the Valentino Rockstuds (yet not the same price, obviously). Size half a size down with these! They run 1/2 a size big. I didn’t believe them when they said that but then my normal size was huge on me. I sized down half a size and that’s what I went home with!



This tote is my new favorite. It comes with a detachable wristlet, which I decide to keep inside with all of my essentials that I would usually lose otherwise! I love how soft the leather is and how much the tote fits. Not to mention, the color is gorgeous. I highly recommend this tote for anyone looking for a great everyday tote for under $100. I actually have been wearing this over my Tory Burch lately! nsale2Heels


I picked up these babies and already wore them last night! You can see me sporting them here. They make such a statement and are so fun! They are comfortable, but I will say my pinky hurt after a few hours standing in them. But that happens with every heel! They are a great height and really add a pop to any outfit. Just make sure you won’t be standing forever in them! For dinners, small events, gatherings, etc. they’re great. I just chose to wear them on a night where I would be standing for hours. They run true to size!

Cross body


You’ve seen me wearing this one too many times. I absolutely love it! It’s a gorgeous color (I also got the latte color) and is really spacious for a cross body. I also love the zippers and how they add a cool touch without being annoying. Love, love, love! You won’t see it for this price again so grab one while you can! nsale3Top


This might be one of my favorite purchases from the sale. It’s such a comfortable top, has subtle blue and white stripes and is a great material. It’s not too thick or too thin so I can wear it without it being see-through and without dying of heat! I’m wearing a size small. This brand runs true to size. 🙂



I also got the flats in red and here they are! Aren’t they beautiful? I can’t wait to start incorporating them into my outfits. I’ve always wanted red flats (not sandals) and couldn’t find a pretty red that I love. This is a gorgeous red and the price is even better.



Here’s how the tote looks in comparison to my body. It’s so perfect! nsale4Top


I got this top in both white and blue (no longer available in those colors) in a size medium. It’s so comfortable but I had heard it ran small so I went for the medium and it’s perfect. Not too loose and not tight at all. I love how it looks great either tucked in or out. There are two colors left so hurry up and get one! Definitely size up for a looser, more comfortable fit. I’m also wearing the cross body here in the latte color. nsale5sale6Top


I purchased this top in three colors: rust, olive and ivory! It’s a really light, comfortable everyday top that can be dressed up or down. I also love the high-low hemline and the feel of the fabric. I do recommend wearing a tank under, but you don’t have to with the darker colors. I like to wear a tank under the white one. Also, size up! I’m wearing a size medium and definitely wouldn’t have been comfortable in the small. It runs a size small.  nsale7 nsale8Sweater


I purchased this sweater in grey, blue and pink salmon.  It is SO cozy! I went up a size and got a medium and am really happy I did. This brand tends to run smaller so I always size up when buying anything from them. These sweaters are awesome to wear over a tank, on their own, or with a scarf during the fall. I highly recommend this sweater! I’m already ready to wear it on the next road trip or plane ride (and everywhere else for that matter).


Unfortunately these jeans sold out way too fast (I told you things go fast) but you can see the other great options here! I recommend picking up a pair of jeans at the #NSale since they’re all marked down. nsale9Top


This tunic is a great top to wear with skinny jeans, leggings, or faux leather leggings and boots during the fall. It’s comfortable, light and will cover your bum if you want to wear it with leggings! I’ve also worn it tucked in and it looks so cute! I love this top. I got a size small and there’s some extra room, but I like my shirts looser. I would definitely recommend staying with your true size here! I got olive, white, black and pink. It’s one of those tops you should stock up on because it will always be a great basic! nsale10Jacket


I love this jacket. I’ve been looking for a great moto jacket for as long as I can remember and this is a winner. I’m so picky with these jackets and have no idea why but I haven’t been able to find one I love until this one! I love that the material isn’t extremely stiff and that you can actually move around in it. I also love how it doesn’t make me look macho, because some jackets do! I’m wearing a size small and it’s perfect. That’s my regular size.  

I still have some things on the way (eek) but I hope this helped make any of your decisions easier! The winner of the $100 Nordstrom gift card is: britt4732@gmail.com. Please email me (laurenthefashionistasdiary@gmail.com) to claim your prize within 24 hours or it will be given to the second

    Clearly I need to go back to Nordie’s and pick up a few more NSale items. I LOVE those flats! I think those are my next purchase, and thank you for the heads up about sizing!
