nordstrom fourth of july sale

Everything I Ordered From the Nordstrom Fourth of July Sale

I spent the final week of June getting ready for the Fourth of July sales.

This post is about everything I ordered from Nordstrom. I also ordered from Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle and Loft.

I purchased everything on the cusp of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I didn’t do a dedicated #NSale post this year, but I did get a little bit of the preview of what was going on sale while I was shopping.

My vision when putting in this order was “gingham everything”… so that’s what you’ll see below!



English Factory Gingham Knit Cardigan – $90

English Factory Medium

I ordered a Medium and it fit true to size. It is extra cute and is thicker than I was expecting, but also very soft. The materials are 50% rayon, 28% polyester, 22% nylon and it says to hand wash. This is the only item I kept out of the entire order because it fit and adds some pink to my closet! It also comes in blue and white.



Rails Mel Patch Pocket Gingham Button-Up Shirt – $148

I wanted to keep this shirt, but the price is so much more than I wanted to spend. This is the softest shirt I’ve ever worn. I will keep my eyes out for a sale in the future or try to find second hand. I bought a Medium, but could have gone down to the small. Shirt is made of 100% rayon.



FARM Rio Forest Birds Tiered Linen Blend Dress – $115.50

I wanted this dress to fit so much! I deliberated back and forth between this and another one of their matching sets. So cute. It first one size smaller than expected, so I would size up. I couldn’t zip the dress over my chest. I am wearing a medium.



English Factory Gingham Tiered Sleeveless Cotton Midi Dress – $110

This dress is definitely not made for people 5’2″! It’s supposed to be a midi dress, but it came to my ankles. I ordered the large, but the straps were also way to big on me. The rest of the dress fit my torso fine, but I had to send this one back.



English Factory Twist Front Gingham Puff Sleeve Top – $90

I ordered a large in this top and it fit, but there was too much material gathered around the chest that it made me look larger than necessary. I’m definitely not looking to add there! I think it would have been too small to go down to the medium.



English Factory Gingham Trouser Shorts – $80

I would love a matching set of these shorts with a blazer jacket, but I tried on the large in these shorts and they were too tight at the waist. Gorgeous option for my taller friends!

I really liked it, but I couldn’t justify the price of this one for right now. I don’t have an event planned where I can wear it and I don’t want it sitting in my closet unused. I will bookmark it for later!



Boden Sleeveless Ruffle Linen Top – $42.50

This is cute and a good price, but I didn’t like how it looked on me. I picked an 8 and it is true to size. I think the shape is much too square for me. It kind of fell blah.

Final Thoughts

I love Nordstrom, but I always find the brands are a hit or miss for me. I can tell that English Factory is designed for a much taller person than me, so not everything fits proportional. Ordering online is always my favorite way to go, but it so much easier to make these decisions when I’m at a store (and there’s not a store super close by to me!).

Did you order anything from the Nordstrom Fourth of July Sale or the Anniversary Sale? Let me know your favorite picks in the comments below!

XOXO,
