Ok so I had a chance to get into the store yesterday to try on a bunch of things, even things I ordered online the other night, in order to bring you a run down of everything I am loving from the sale. You guys it is soooo GUUUUD. I feel like the prices are so much better than they have been in the past. Like more items in that $30-50 range that are such great quality.
There are so many fun tops out there with ruffles, bell sleeves, bows etc….Below I am sharing all the details on many of these tops and my thoughts on how practical they are for not only real life, but #momlife too. As cute as some of these are, they will not be that functional with young babies!
Halogen Tie Hem Sweater I liked this sweater. The tie detail on front is totally on trend and the quality of the sweater was perfect for those cool fall and winter days. I also think it’s perfect for my day to day mom life. It’s casual, comfortable and the tie adds enough details that you don’t have to worry about adding jewelry if you don’t want to. Sizing: I think it runs true to size, I am wearing a medium here. But, I think if I decide to buy it I would actually size up, because I am a little wider on the hips and I would want this to feel a little looser. I feel like if I wore the medium I would constantly be pulling it down
Wit & Wisdom Jeans: I am wearing these throughout the post so I will only talk about them here. I have actually had this pair for about 4 years, but they include the same one’s each year. For $44.90 this is an excellent deal and will surely be in rotation for quite some time. I have worn them a TON and because they have a good stretch, I was able to wear them throughout both of my pregnancies. They fit like a true skinny jean, they’re perfect to pair up with your riding, over-the-knee or Hunter boots. I think they run a bit on the larger side and are the type that stretch out, so I recommend going down 1, even 2 sizes. I’m wearing a 4 for reference and my black pair I have is a 2…I’m normally a size 6-8.
Converse Shoreline Sneaker: again these are old, but are still available at Nordstrom Rack for $40. They are worth it, easy to slip on and comfortable enough to wear ALL DAY.
Pleione Tiered Bell Sleeve Top: I ordered this you guys. I know the sleeves aren’t ideal with young kids and having to reach across tables to help them eat. But It is just SOOO comfortable and flattering. I will say for a ruffle and bell sleeve it is definitely one of the better options because they aren’t too big and over the top like many of them out there are. Sizing: Runs big, I recommend sizing down.. I’m normally a medium and I am wearing a small in this photo.
Pleione Cold Shoulder Tie Sleeve Sweatshirt: Ummm…..seriously one of the softest tops (along with the Gibson one I’m sharing a couple of shirts down). I could seriously live in this top. I have to say I wasn’t sure how the tie on the sleeves would feel, but they are not restricting in movement like I thought it might be. I would easily be able to pick up and carry my kids around. I think it would also be super cute with leggings and booties too if you wanted to dress up the sweatshirt. Sizing TTS/a little big.I think Pleione is one of those brands that makes you feel good because I am pretty consistently a small in the brand. In most brands I’m a medium, but I am wearing small in this.
Halogen V-Neck Tunic Tee: This is just a basic tee for layering. I love this one, only $19.90 and it’s one of the only tee’s that doesn’t have a small pocket. Don’t get me wrong, the little pocket is cute on a basic tee, but I prefer my layering tee’s not to have it. I also love the length of this tee. The Lush tee is also always a popular item, but I sometimes think they run on the shorter side….and with my hips, I like the length. Sizing runs TTS, I am wearing a medium, I sometimes even size up for a more oversized look.
Halogen Ruffle Trim Top: OK so how cute is this??? This goes into that category of mine, throw and go….you know throw it on and go. The ruffle detail on the side adds just enough to the top where you don’t necessarily need to add anything, which is my favorite because I don’t always have time to sit and think about jewelry I want to wear. This comes in a couple of colors, but how fun is the red…So perfect for those holiday parties you will have coming up! Sizing: runs TTS, I am wearing a medium, and its only $40
Gibson Bell Sleeve Cozy Fleece: This is another one of those “softest shirts I’ve ever put on” type of pieces. I know when I saw it online I was a little less than impressed, I thought it was just a basic kind of top. But after trying it on, I knew I had to have it. Just like it says, it is a cozy fleece and I will find myself wearing this on repeat as the weather cools down. I think the other thing I love about it is the sleeve, I like how the bell sleeve starts at the elbow. The bell sleeve also is not as dramatic as others so it again will be OK wearing out and about with the girls. Sizing: Runs a little big, I am wearing a small and I think it still has a slight slouchy feel, I don’t like items to be too fitted.
Caslon Twill Peplum Jacket: How cute is this jacket. I am loving the more feminine take on the military style jacket. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to get it, but it’s definitely up there on my list. It is super lightweight so it’s perfect right now in the evenings when it cools down and especially for those early Fall and Spring days, when it just starts to cool down. Honestly there is no weight to it so if you live where it get’s cold, it’s not going to do much for you in the Winter. Sizing: runs big, I am wearing a small. I also love that it’s not super boxy, the fit is really flattering.
I think my favorite thing about all of these tops is they look cute with my sneakers, so they are definitely perfect for wearing casually, but still looking put together when you’re running around with your kids, or even just running around getting things done.
Alright guys, this is just from the POV section at Nordstrom. I will have another round up coming soon from the Topshop, TBD and Saavy departments. I’m also putting together my favorites from the Kids section, they also have some good things for the girls, and will add it to my Anniversary Picks page soon, so be on the look out for that!
