Try It On Tuesday – #NSALE Edition

Are you ready for another issue of “Try It On Tuesday”? 

Today I’m sharing my scores (and returns) from the Nordstrom sale.

The dressing room is my own home and I’m showing you what I loved and returned. Not that I necessarily wanted to return, but sadly I can’t keep it all.


BUT…before we get to it, I want to wish my sweet daddy a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I know a lot of you girls think you have the very best father, but just let me tell you I hit the jackpot when God gave me to this man (and my mom 😉 ) I hope you have a wonderful day and know just how loved you are!!!

Now back to TIOT (Try It On Tuesday)

Let me tell you right up-front that some of these items are only available in a few sizes and some are unavailable, but if you are interested in something you should check back frequently because they are continually restocking. I checked twice on a pair of jeans that were out of stock the other day and the second time I checked they had shown back up.

Sweater / Jeans / Shoes (shoe option) / similar necklace

I love sweaters and this cocoon sweater is a great almost year round piece. It will transition from late summer cool evenings right into fall and then on into winter and carry you through early spring. I love the weight and it’s soft too. I paired it with the Wit and Wisdom absolution stretch jeans that I’m pretty sure I’ll wear the tar out of and these adorable lace up flats. I bought my first pair of Wit and Wisdom jeans last year during this sale and they are super comfortable. Did you know items bought during the sale qualify for FREE alterations? I took my black jeans in to be hemmed assuming I’d be charged and it was free!!! I was pumped!

Love these shoes!

Let’s talk about this sweater. Y’all must be figuring out I’m a sucker for soft fabrics. When I ordered this sweater I really wasn’t sure what it would be like and when it arrived. Oh. my. word. It is sooooo soft. I really want it in every color just because of the way it feels. I love the olive green color I have on here. I feel pretty confident this is going to be a favorite this winter.

Sweater / jeans / shoes

The things I do for you guys.  I wanted you to see the cut of this sweater. Yes, it’s boxy, but it still looks really cute on. I love the way it hangs.

Here I just changed out my shoes for my new boots. LOVE THEM. I’ve been looking at these Frye boots for at least five years and finally caved and bought them. I know I’ll be able to wear them for years and years. I’d really love to try a pair of over the knee boots, but I know there’s no way I’d be able to pull them off (figuratively). My legs are just too short.

This is one of the sweaters that is called a sweatshirt I showed you in an early #NSALE post.

Again, super soft and casual but cute.

Bobeau sweatshirt / similar jeans / booties

These Lucky booties are darling and even better than that they are really comfortable. They have a nice cushiony insole and feel great on your feet.

Baby blardigan love right here. This is just as soft as those sweet little baby blankets with the dots. You know the ones I’m talking about, right? You will want to wear this every single day…I know I do.

If you look closely you’ll notice this is a different pair of booties. When I saw them I just couldn’t decide which pair I liked the most so I ordered both. The cut outs on the side of these are so adorable and I’d love to just keep both pairs, but in the end the Lucky booties won out in comfort. These are by no means uncomfortable, but the Lucky pair is just really comfy. If I didn’t already have black booties, I’d be getting this pair in black.

I need y’all to help me decide which baby blardigan to keep? Oatmeal or Navy?

I’m really torn but just can’t keep both. Leave a comment with which one you think I should keep. I keep going back and forth and can’t commit.

Thanx for the help. 🙂

This sweater is light-weight, but not too light. I love it, but it’s just too long for my frame. You tall girls would look great in this one and it would be a great transitional piece. I think it runs kind of large so I’d suggest sizing down. This one is a small, but I’d definitely need an extra-small if I was keeping it.

I wanted y’all to see just how long this is on me in the back. I’m almost 5’3″ 😉


There you have it friends. The good, bad (not really) and the returned. I wish I could keep everything but I’m just thinking of it as a lesson in self-control.

    I really like the Oatmeal Blardigan for some reason. It looks really pretty on you. I like all of your choices though, especially your shoes.

      Hi Kathy! Thank you so much for the sweet words. My gut said the oatmeal too, but my husband and daughter vote navy…go figure. I think the oatmeal would be so versatile. Decisions, decisions. 😉

    My comment disappeared. I like them both, but I vote Navy also. LOVE the whole ensemble with the pink shirt.

      Dang it, I just can't decide. I love them both but just keep thinking the oatmeal will go with EVERYTHING. I can wear it with black pants too but not the navy…why do I have to be so practical???? 😉 I really do like the navy one though. UGHHHH!!!
