My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchases

Okay, yes, I know, you're totally over hearing bloggers talk about the #NSale. I can't help it though, I just can't help it. I'm giving in to the hype. Here are my Nordy purchases from this year's sale...
I scouted out the sale via other blogs and by getting a sneak peek while cardholders were able to purchase. My strategy was to really stock up on postpartum needs for work. Things change a lot post-baby (like your shoe size, who knew?!), so I was excited to pick up some items for when I go back to the daily grind in August. Here's what I snatched up with the thought that I'll probably return a lot because I'm still figuring out best fits. 

Let's start with pants. Right now, definitely not my favorite item of clothing :), but nonetheless a necessity. 
I'm really excited about these leggings by SPANX (only $64.90). Leggings are a fall and winter must and these contain a control top, hello cold weather staple! They also have contoured lines and seem really thick which will be great for work. I love the fine wine color, but bought black for versatility.
Flared black pants are a work must have, and I really like the look of these Vince Camuto ones, especially at $58.90. Who's a fan of this brand? I honestly think I own one thing, but this time around ended up buying a couple items.
I haven't had a flared pair of jeans since college and think they're super flattering, so these were high on my list. I really wanted to splurge a bit on the J Brand jeans that are part of the sale at $149.90, but opted for these KUT from the Kloth flares at $62.90 instead so I could fit another item in my budget.
As for skinnies, I kept it on the cheaper side here too and bought these Two by Vince Camuto stretchy skinny jeans at $45.90. 

Now on to tops and dresses...
I knew I had to have this LUSH tunic when I saw it on a few other blogs, especially since it was only $27.90. I can't wait to pair it with the SPANX leggings above!
Comfy blazer, check! This Calson knit blazer comes in eight different colors and is great at only $39.90.
This knit Topshop stripe dress ($42.90) is another blogger favorite. I love the relaxed fit and am hoping my Frye boots still fit so I can pair this with them!
Just like the LUSH tunic, I'm loving this relaxed style dress and decided to snatch it up too at $31.90. 

Shoes, Accessories and More...
These boots by Joie were my big purchase and I couldn't be more excited! For the past few years I've been needing a good pair of booties. When I flipped through the Anniversary Sale catalog, I kept loving these whenever they were pictured, so I scooped them up! Don't get me wrong, I was eyeing these Tory boots for a long time and may have hinted that they would make a great bday or xmas gift to the hubby ;).
I had my heart set on the Kate Spade glitter studs that everyone loves during this sale, but then realized I probably wouldn't actually wear them that much. I think I'll get a lot more wear out of these Kendra Scott Stone Drop Earrings at $33.90.

The Rayne necklace by Kendra Scott is also on sale and I wear mine all the time! Another jewelry item on sale is the Bourbon and Bowtie bangle sets which I think I'm going to regret not adding to my list.
Last, but certainly not least, I was excited that this year I shopped early enough to get my hands on the Voluspa set of two-wick candles for only $29.50. 

What were your purchases? What do you think are my hits and misses? Can't wait to see your steals and deals too!
