Another year, another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Early access is currently on through the 18th. I figured I would put together a similar post to last year, which has led me to reflect on how much has changed. Last year, I shared my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks while pregnant. This year, I share them with a 9 month old while I prepare to become a SAHM.
I loved being pregnant, but I am SO happy to be able to wear more things in my wardrobe… though, nursing does make it a bit tricky when it comes to tops. I never dressed very formal at work to begin with, but I imagine my days going forward will be spent in loungewear. However, I wanted to pick up a couple things I could wear when I felt like a little effort into my appearance.
This year, I picked up most of the things that are on my list of sale picks. The Levi’s are a fit that I already know I love, but in black (which I don’t own) and are in my new size that should fit me better than my older jeans. I also live in sweaters, so the Madewell one will get a lot of use. Thirdly, the Madewell denim jacket is something I already own and it’s great! Highly, highly recommend it.
From there, I built out my list on some classics that are for the most part, missing from my wardrobe. I finally caved and grabbed a plaid blazer. We shall see how the fit it but it may go back if I don’t think I’ll get enough wear out of it. Another iffy item is the Madewell track trousers. I love the vibe, but I’m not sure they are going to be long enough for me. I do think the two tops (button-down and wrap top) will get a lot of wear. The booties and jumpsuit I skipped out on because I don’t need them, but they’re both super cute!
Given my new position (or lack thereof), I don’t think I will be spending much more on clothing in the future. I am pretty satisfied with my current wardrobe and and actually have a lot of room to purge a bit. Hopefully, this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be my last hoorah and I will end up keeping everything… we shall see!
