What I Wore - July Recap + NSale Goodies

Coming at you on this rainy Wednesday to share all of my looks from last month!  But before we get into that, I want to share with you a couple of new goodies that arrived in the mail earlier this week from the Nordstrom sale!  I purchased three items from the sale and I am in love with every single one of them so I wanted to share in case you are still debating on purchasing something before the sale is over… which just so happens to be this Sunday!

My very favorite pick is the Blouson Sleeve Cozy Fleece Pullover.  The stitching around the collar and the blousy sleeves make for such a dreamy piece, and I could not be more happy with the color I chose – Pink Smoke.  This would be the perfect top for a wintery date night.  It’s soft and cozy and warm while also being classy and sophisticated. 

I will tell you this, though.  This top runs large so size down!  I typically wear a small in tops when I shop at Nordstrom, but I am wearing the XS here.  I had actually ordered the small, but then read that it ran large, so I went ahead and ordered the XS, too, so I could try them both!  I could definitely have gotten away with keeping the small if I had needed to, but the XS looked a bit more polished and form-fitting so I’m going to keep that one.

If you’re not into blush pink, it also comes in black, blue, grey, fushia, and grey and white stripes.  There are still lots of colors left in most of the sizes, too!  If I had a money tree I would buy it in every single color.  I kid you not! 

My second favorite item was the Halogen Bell Sleeve Knit Top.  I know I have already mentioned it once in this previous post, but it’s worth mentioning again because it feels like butter and fits like a glove.  It comes in black, black and white stripes, and Kelly green and it also happens to be the most affordable piece that I chose.  It’s still available in all colors and sizes!

My third and final item that I ordered from the sale was this Caslon Tie Knot Sweatshirt.  So, this top sold out in most of the colors and sizes almost immediately when the sale started.  Since I wasn’t able to get the size/color combination that I thought I needed, I decided to go ahead and grab the color that I wanted in the only size they had available at the time – a large – so I could get it with the sale price.  I figured that I could just exchange it when they get more in stock after the sale is over, and I would already be locked in at the sale price.  Smart, huh?  Well, when the large arrived I expected it to swallow me whole since I typically wear a small, but y’all, this top actually runs small and I think I like the way the large looks on me!

The picture here doesn’t do it justice at all (and the smudges on the mirror also don’t help) because it is just adorable on!  And so comfy!  I bought this to wear with leggings before and after workouts so I may just hang on to the large because I like for my tops to cover my hiney when I wear leggings.  What do y’all think?  Go smaller or keep?

Now that that’s out of the way, here are my looks from July!  As always, I linked everything that I could find online under each of the pictures so you can shop if you see something you like.  

And watch out for these gold sandals and these brown sandals on repeat.  I cannot stop wearing both of them.  So comfy, so cute, and so affordable!

Also, I was asked a gazillion questions about where I bought my scalloped tank top that I wore on July 20... it is this one here from J. Crew and I could not love it more!  It comes in tons of sizes and it's on sale right now!

And finally, my favorite AE tank that I wore on July 22 is on clearance right now for just $9.99!
