NSALE Early Access – Round 2 of Picks

Hey guys, good morning! I’m so glad the beginning HYPE of early access is over and done with – can you believe Nordstrom’s website actually shut down for a few hours? That was insane. But as far as I know, everything is back up and running smoothly now! Did you buy a few things yesterday? Hopefully you snatched up a few goodies – I’m sure things will start selling out, but it’s hard to know exactly what and when.

I’m back again today with more outfits for y’all, styling my second round of picks from shopping the sale. I didn’t really follow any sort of “theme” (e.g., fitness, work-inspired), but instead just kept going where I left off after day 1.

I’m also repeating a few items (and adding in new ones!) to try and style my picks different ways. The plan is to pick a few MUST HAVE/very versatile items (around 6-ish) that I’ll style 3 different ways just like I did last year! Y’all seemed to REALLY love that post, so I wanted to do it again for y’all! Plus, it’s always nice to get outfit ideas right off the bat for something new you’re buying, right?!

But first – can we talk about my landscaping though? So bad. It’s on my list (ha!) of things to “get to” …eventually. ANYWAYYYS. Let’s talk about this outfit. I already told you about this striped tee (XS) in yesterday’s post, but I wanted to draw your attention to this waterfall front cashmere vest. I also got it in black too (outfit in yesterday’s post).

And as I’m sure you can already tell, I’m getting GREAT use out of the Stuart Weitzman OTK boots, as I’ve already styled them multiple ways for y’all! I know there will be (there always are) knock-offs of these boots, but I don’t think anything else compares to the real deal. I actually think it’s worth the investment – you get what you pay for when it comes to boots. 

Halogen Drape Front Cashmere Vest (one size) // $149 Marked Down To $98
BP. Long Sleeve Striped Shirt (wearing size XS)  // $29 Marked Down To $18
PAIGE High Waist Jeans  // $199 Marked Down To $139
Stuart Weitzman OTK Boots (size down 1/2 size) // $798 Marked Down To $499

I’m surprised I didn’t mention this top ($24!) in yesterday’s round up because it was definitely something that stuck out to me yesterday as a great find. Not because it’s a crazy awesome savings or anything, but just because it’s a good top. Let me explain. It’s a great color AND I like that it has texture, which is good for layering (to create versatility and depth with your outfits). Plus, this particular color neutral (darker-ish cream) is actually not that easy to come by, considering how basic of a color it is. All that to say, I think it’s a great piece to have in your everyday Fall arsenal.

As for these pants, I mean Paige jeans are great but if you already have a good pair of black skinny jeans then you’re all set. Lastly, these booties were in a few outfits yesterday – they’re really flattering and the heel height is just right for snappy casual daytime.

Thermal Top (wearing size XS) // $38 Marked Down To $24
PAIGE High Waist Jeans  // $199 Marked Down To $139
Vince Camuto Bootie (color TAUPE, TTS) // $149.95 Marked Down To $99

I wore this same plaid top in the red color way yesterday. It fits a little oversized and I’m wearing size XS. I think the black and white plaid would also look great with cognac or tan suede or leather for a black on brown combo! It would also be cute paired with denim – possibly a denim jacket layered over it or even tied around your waist with black leggings? Either way, I like the top and it’s a great price point ($31).

BP. Plaid Shirt (wearing size XS – fit is a little oversized) // $49 Marked Down To $31
PAIGE High Waist Jeans // $199 Marked Down To $139
Vince Camuto OTK Boot (TTS)  // $239 Marked Down To $159

I didn’t LOVE this top UNTIL I put it on. Something about the neckline and overall fit of it is just SO flattering!! And even though the back is so fun (love it!), I think it would look really nice under a leather (or any kind actually) jacket once it gets a little chilly.

Lace Up Knit Tank // $59 Marked Down To $38
PAIGE High Waist Jeans  // $199 Marked Down To $139

I feel like this top is difficult to photograph, but it really is SO STINKIN’ CUTE! And so perfect for everyday wear! Plus, it’s something that you could incorporate into your wardrobe right now ;)

Topshop Balloon Sleeve Tee (US2) // $45 Marked Down To $29
Mother Cropped Jeans (TTS, high-waisted) // $228 Marked Down To $149

Le Specs Black Sunglasses // $89 Marked Down To $58

If you don’t already have a good-looking utility jacket, I would highly recommend this one! It’s got a great fit and the length is JUST right.

Madewell Military Jacket //  $118 Marked Down To $78
BP. Long Sleeve Striped Shirt (XS)  // $29 Marked Down To $18
Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans (TTS – but stretchy) // $198 Marked Down To $131
Vince Camuto Peep Toe Booties (TTS, color: TAUPE) //  $149.95 Marked Down To $99

Suede skirts were HUGE last Fall (remember?!) and I’m sure they’ll be around again this season. I actually already own this exact skirt in another suede color (LOVE IT) – the fit is perfection and the suede is super thick so it lays right on your figure if that makes sense? (probably not but oh well haha). Plus, I love the rust/copper-ish color of this suede!

BlankNYC Suede Skirt (Wearing size 24) // $98 Marked Down To $64

Vince Milo Loafer (I went down a whole size) // $250 Marked Down To $164.90

Let me fill you in on how I plan to cover the sale over the weekend and throughout the next week. That way, you can have a general idea of what to expect (although I am one to change my mind A LOT). But as of right now, I plan on doing my “must have” items styled 3 ways tomorrow (Saturday), then I’m figuring out a way to cover/organize the following different product areas: beauty, gifts & year-round essentials, stuff for the boys, fitness & lounge wear, stuff you can wear right now (aka not fall), investments (idk if I’ll do this one because all the good stuff might sell out before I can publish? haha), and work-inspired picks. Let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions on this!

BTD VIP SHOPPERS Email List

Also, did you see on my instagram stories that I’m getting an email list together? I’d love to connect with y’all (the ones really tuned into the NSALE) on a more personal level, rather than just mass-publishing content and hoping everyone wants to see it. Instead, I’d like to get a list together of people I KNOW are interested and then give y’all what you actually want. Make sense? Sign up to get on the list here.

      Hi Alexis!! you’ll have to let me know what you think! I think the black top is a no-brainer, you’re going to love and find it super easy to throw on, layer etc. The utility jacket is awesome!! Wish it was a better price but I think it’s the best option of the sale!

    First of all you are killing it! While the other fashion bloggers are just showing links to items, or instastories of them in car on the way to Nordstrom’s – you have actual pictures of you – wearing the stuff! Makes it much easier to pick out what I want to purchase. I picked one of the cardigans and two tops from the first round up. And, I am going to go in and grab that lace tank today! Thank you for all of your hard work! And, I am just cracking up that Nordstrom’s website went down. They are number one in customer service though. Today I received a $10.- for any trouble I might of had.

    Loving the NSale coverage:) can I get your opinion on sizing for the lush tee shirt? I’m usually a small in tops and that one looks like it might be a little oversized but I’m kinda busty so I’m wondering if I should size up to a medium to make sure it gives me that roomy comfy fall vibe with a front tuck and a cardi. What do you think?! Thanks in advance!

      I think they run TTS. I got a size 7 and that’s what I normally wear in Steve Madden, Sam Edelman, Vince Camuto and similar brands!

    Love all of these outfits! hopefully this isn’t too personal of a question but what type of bra do you wear under the maroon lace up knit top?? and what size are you wearing?

      such a good question! Personally I wear my strapless bra (http://bit.ly/BTDstraplessbra) because you can’t really see it through the strappy stuff since the color is so close to skin tone. But I guess you should ideally wear a sticky bra!!

    Wow! Loving this post and your styling! I was wondering if you can help with sizing on the Paige Black jeans? TTS? The Nordstrom site says “runs small” but the one review says TTS??? I just ordered the Rag and Bone 10″ skinny (stretchy). Would you say to order the same size as those? Thanks so much!!

    So I saw the lace up knit tank when I went shopping yesterday but I decided to order it last night after seeing on you bc it looks great! I was wondering what bra do you where with it since it cuts in so much?

      Hey Rachel! so sorry I’m just responding – I got a new comment system and for some reason it doesn’t email me when people comment! Anyway, I wear my favorite strapless bra with it! I shared it in my “underwear essentials” post but here’s the link for you:: http://bit.ly/2bxbkmm
