My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shoe Purchases + Restocked Items + My Favorite Purchases

Happy Friday and happy official first day on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Just in case y'all haven't heard this already hehe, today until August 6th you can officially shop the sale without needing a Nordstrom card to shop it! Finally :) 

I was torn between a few ideas I had in mind for today's post, so I took to Instagram stories (per usual) to ask y'all what you would like to see. I got a huge response for both a review of the shoe purchases I've made during this sale as well as a post covering my favorite items that have been re-stocked just in time for the sale to officially open to everyone. At the very end of the post, I'm also going to be sharing my top fifteen favorite purchases that I have made in the sale so far. 

I must say that I usually purchase 90% of my shoes for fall during this sale. I always say that the shoes in the Anniversary Sale (especially the booties) are my favorites of the season! Last year, I found myself regretting not purchasing a few pairs of shoes. I actually went back weeks after the sale ended and purchased them for full price. This year I remembered that and decided to grab up the ones I want for fall. So, let's start with my shoe purchases, shall we? :) 

Regular price: $224.95 // Sale price: $149.90
Besides being absolutely perfect, these boots won me over as I know they will be the ideal go-to shoe for fall. The chestnut color just screams fall! There was a similar boot available in the Anniversary sale last year that I wanted but never purchased. I loved them so much that I actually ended up purchasing them a few weeks later for full price. I wore those things out! When I saw these similar ones this year, I grabbed them up immediately. I went with my regular size and feel that they run TTS. I also love the round heel and the fact there is a distressed look around the toe area. 

Regular Price: $119.95 // Sale Price: $79.90
Two words: velvet pumps!! These shoes were ones that I actually did not plan to buy...until I saw them in person. I had wanted to purchase this pair, but they just didn't look right on my feet. These however are SO gorgeous! They are right in between a light pink and nude. Words can't describe how beautiful these are. I purchased my regular size and feel they run TTS. They come in a handful of colors.

Regular price: $139.95 // Sale price: $89.90
Words simply can't do these booties justice. They are absolutely amazing! What I love about these is that they are dressy enough to wear with a dress or keeping it casual with denim. The cutout on the outer side makes them irresistible. They also run TTS and come in several colors. If you're looking for a fun pair that's a little different from the usual, these are them!

Regular price: $95 // Sale price: $70.90
I have never owned a pair of black sneakers until now. Why, I have no idea! But I decided that I needed a more versatile pair after beginning my fitness course. When I saw these in the sale, I grabbed them up. They're so comfortable with the stretchy material. They run TTS. I wore them to class the day after they arrived, and I officially love them! 

Regular Price: $239.95 // Sale price: $159.90
I immediately fell in love with the details of these OTK boots. Anddd when they arrived in my order, I fell in love with them even more. The taupe color will go with some much. Even though I'm only 5'2 I'm still able to comfortably pull these beauties off. They come in a few colors. My Mama actually purchased them in the color "greystone" and I love them as well. They run TTS, and I ordered my regular size. The cutout details on these make them simply stunning!

Regular price: $195 // Sale price: $129.90
These sandals (or open toe booties, as I like to call them) are the perfect wear-now and wear-later shoe. They are great to transition into fall with! I love this color as it is perfect for the transitional period and all the way into the fall. They are simply gorgeous! They also run TTS and come in two other colors. 

Regular price: $159.95 // Sale price: $99.90
Here is yet another pair of open toe booties. These are so unique from the rest, and I just love them! The block heel is so thick, making them extra comfortable. The ankle strap is the cutest feature! They look amazing with jeans and even more amazing with a dress. I absolutely love these! They also run TTS. 

Regular price: $149.95 // Sale price: $99.90
These split shaft booties are my favorite pair of booties purchased during this sale. They're amazing!!! The split shaft and perforated details make them so unique. I also love the color. I'll be enjoying these all fall for sure. I also went with my regular size in these as they run TTS. They come in two other colors as well.  If you need one pair of booties from the Anniversary Sale, I'd say go with these :)

And lastly, I just have to share the darling little shoes Madeline has gotten in the Anniversary Sale:

These booties are the cutest things ever! I love the suede with the fringe details. I originally wanted these for her in gold until I saw the navy blue in person. They're so adorable! They do run large, however. I bought them in the size she is wearing now to wear in a few months for fall. These scallop flats are darling, if you ask me. They look so cute paired with her jeans or leggings or with a dress to wear to church! They run a little on the smaller side to me. I went ahead and bought the next size up for her, just so that they will last. These faux fur sneakers are the cutest things ever!!! I can't get over how precious these are. And Madeline loves them :) They look so cute with her jeans. They also run TTS. I also am dying to get her these boots, but they have yet to restock them in her size. Fingers crossed it will happen!

Okay now to share some of my favorite items that have been re-stocked. I have my fingers crossed that they will re-stock more of my favorite purchases as they have yet to do so. I believe that they continue re-stocking as the sale goes on. Some pieces are popping up in a few sizes here and there while some (like one of my favorite dresses) have been fully re-stocked in just about every size. I'll keep y'all updated on when/if some of my favorites are re-srocked and will update this post (and announce on my IG stories) when/if they do. Here are a few that have been re-stocked so far:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

And now (drum roll, please), here is a list of my top 15 favorite purchases from the Anniversary Sale:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8
9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 13 // 14 // 15

This jacket was a purchase that I didn't think I'd end up loving, but once it arrived, it quickly became one of my very favorites (possibly my most favorite purchase). It's different from anything I've ever owned, but it's absolutely amazing! I have had SO much fun playing with it over the past week and styling outfits for fall. It looks great over a sweater or a tank with jeans or over a dress. It's incredible! I went with a small in this jacket just to give it enough room for layering.
*UPDATE* This jacket was just re-stocked in all sizes! Grab it up fast before it's gone again :)

The name of this sweater is just's so easy and fun! It's comfy, cozy and one one of those pieces that makes you say "fall, hurry up!" I'm so hopping that they re-stock this piece because it's easily one of my very very favorites. I went with an x-small in this piece as it runs TTS.

Ruffles...need I say more? But seriously, this pretty top made it to my favorites list simply because of how unique it is! It's structured yet SO fun. The asymmetrical ruffles add the cutest detail and the hint of bell sleeves is even more adorable. I love how it could be sophisticated for work or styled to be more flirty and fun with jeans. This also runs TTS.

This darling cardigan again falls on my favorites list because of how unique it is! The cardigan style makes it so easy to throw on and style, yet the dramatic ruffle sleeves make it SO fun! This piece runs a tad bit large, and since this brand runs small, simply go with your regular size. For example, I usually size up to a US 4 in this brand, but went with a US 2 in this cardi. 

I can't describe just how much I love this simplistic piece. It has been re-stocked as well! It's such a great way to transition into fall as it gives that sweater vibe all while being sleeveless. It's SO cute on and pairs perfectly with the suede moto jacket I mentioned above or with a cardigan.

This stunning piece was the first thing that caught my eye when I previewed the lookbook before the sale began. I knew right then and there that I had to have it! It was the first item I added to my bag with my first NSale purchase. I fell even more in love with it when it arrived. I have always wanted a wrap watch, and this one being Tory Burch made it a must-have for me. It's soooo gorgeous and versatile!

As I mentioned in my shoe review above, these boots are definitely a favorite purchase. They're so versatile and perfect for fall. I know I'll be wearing them with everything. Again, they run TTS.

As mentioned above, these pumps won me over the second I laid eyes on them in the store. They are the sweetest neutral shade of blush/pink and being velvet, I simply could not resist them. 

Also mentioned above, these booties are possibly my very favorite shoe purchase from the sale. They're so unique and fun with the cutouts and split shaft. They're versatile and can be dressed up and down. I absolutely love them!

If you follow me on Instagram and watched my Insta stories from two days ago, you saw that I'm loving this lip kit! I had so much fun with these during the NSale last year and was so excited to see them back again. MAC lip products are my very favorite. They feel so smooth on your lips and smell amazing! I love a good nude lip, and this kit is perfect for creating just that! It's amazing. I love it so much that I just purchased the pink kit as well. 

This bag also falls on my favorite purchases list because...well, just look at it! I've already styled it a few times on the blog this week. The Anniversary Sale is an amazing opportunity to get some Tory Burch at a discounted price. I decided to go with the gray this year as it's something different from what I've had in the past. I was a little worried about it clashing with my jewelry since I wear so much gold, but that ended up not being an issue at all :)

Three words: Little Black Dress. This dress is the perfect LBD. The style is so so cute! From church to work to a fancy dinner out, it's perfection! I love the drop waist hem that ruffles around the back. It's seriously the cutest (especially with leopard pumps). BUT it does run very large! I had to size down to a XXS petite for it to fit me (I'm 5'2 and usually a size 0-2 for reference). 

This dress was also one that I was hesitant about at first but fell in love with once it arrived! The material is almost a swiss dot material, which I just love!! The elastic waist band allows you to scrunch it up if you're on the petite side like I am or you can stretch it out if you need more length. I always go up one size in this brand and went with a small in this dress.

Zella is my absolute favorite brand for athletic wear. The fit is always amazing, and the quality is impeccable. The cutouts down the sides of these leggings make them oh so cute and add some excitement to the usual black legging. I also love that these are high waisted and hold everything in :) They run TTS, and I purchased an XS, for reference. 

Last but not least...these jeans! AG is one of my all time favorite denim brands, and I love this pair! The raw hem adds such a fun touch. Since I'm 5'2, I cuff them up to fit a little better, and they still look just as cute. I absolutely love them!

Well that's about it for today! I hope I covered everything that y'all requested. Overall, I think we can all agree that it's one. amazing. sale. Again, I'll keep checking to see if more of my favorite items are re-stocked in the sale! Follow along with my on Instagram as I always post updates to my Instagram stories. Now, I want to hear what YOU got in the sale! Share it in the comments below. Shopping this sale always leaves me saying, "hurry up, fall!" :)
