Hi everyone! I was pleasantly surprised my Nordstrom sale order came quick this year! I think last year I had the never-ending “order pending” on my account until things either slowly shipped or were eventually cancelled. Everything came as expected, and I’m keeping all four of my items!…..4! That’s it (ha!) Ok, I have a couple items on my wish list, but I haven’t decided if I’ll order them now or play a little roulette and see if they are still in stock in a couple weeks. So… stay tuned! But, until then – here were my top picks and I why I’m keeping them.
#1 (….& #2):
My top 2 favorite picks (of the 4) are this lightweight, soft as butter sweater and Steve Madden studded loafers. Both fit TTS. The sweater is as expected for a BP line sweater ~ I have numerous in my closet and this is definitely one of my favorites with how soft it is! The fit isn’t cropped, but I would say shorter. A front tuck might be in order if you have a long waist (I’m very short waisted). Not quite a dolman sleeve, but certainly a looser fit.
My top-down photo below depicts a better representation of the color & knit of the sweater. I should have waited to take photos – I started too early this morning and didn’t have great lighting in our master bedroom yet. However, if plum isn’t your color – there are 4-5 other color options available (colors are selling out fast – but keep checking back, Nordstrom always restocks things as they are returned…. especially once all these bloggers shill things they don’t actually like and return them later this week…😏 #anotherstory).
As stated above, the shoes run true-to-size. They are extremely comfortable and I like wearing mine to work just as much as an expensive pair of Tory Burch Minnie flats. This is actually my 3rd pair! I have the overly-coveted snakeskin print on my wish list, just haven’t decided if I should be like everyone else. Should I? 😙
I have been wanting one of these twist hem tops for a very long time. I have no idea what took me so long to purchase, but I’m very happy I did (especially since they are on sale!). They run large (I sized down one size). Extremely soft and very comfortable. I think you could easily dress this top up with jeans and booties just as easy as I did styling it for “athleisure” here. The reason I put this top as my #3 (versus #1/2) is because of the length. I think some other colors do come in petite sizing, however this leopard print does not. Since I’m only 5’2″, it’s very much a tunic length on me. Not a huge deal, I’m keeping it for sure! But, it does limit when I wear it to most likely with leggings or booties with a heel.
And last, but not least this striped v-neck tee. Ok, let’s start with the positives. The striped print/raw edges are on point (solid colors available also). It’s certainly worth the $16 for a trendy tee that you can layer with anything in the fall/winter months. The back drapes perfectly and has a slight hi-low hem which will look awesome under a sweater or with skinny jeans/booties. It’s lightweight, so honestly perfect for summer even now in the AC, which is why I paired it with shorts instead of pants. I ordered my normal size (small). The armholes and length are perfect.
Now, the negative. The v-neck is really low. Like cleavage low if I pull it down in the front. So ya gotta be careful or the girls are going to be waving! I don’t think I would size down because then the arm holes would be too tight. I could wear it with a camisole or lace bralette, but I think that might be a little uncomfortable in Florida. So, I’m definitely keeping it, but may try to shrink a little in the dryer after washing and see if that doesn’t help. Reviews say it runs ‘slightly large’, so I would say if you are an A/B cup and more slender, go down one size. I carry weight in my arms which is why I don’t think sizing down would help a lot.
Anyway, that’s why this pick was “last, but not least” because of the wide v-neck and fit, but it’s still a great pick for only $16!
