The 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here, and we’ve been elbow deep in trying the pieces so you don’t have to! We’re sharing what was a hit and what was more of a swing and a miss in today’s post, specifically for tops and sweaters! Don’t forget to join the LIY Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Facebook Group where there are nightly giveaways happening!

PS You can check out Erin’s FULL Hit’s & Misses blog post in one spot right here!

PSS Consider THIS your NSale headquarters, with all the content in one spot!

While I’m hitting publish today on this post, I still have a decent amount of items that are still on their way to me. With that being said, I will be updating this blog post often with new hits & misses so keep checking back! 

If you have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale already, you may have missed a thing or two, but have no fear – you have until July 31st to purchase the products at a major discount. After that, prices will go back up to normal.

ANNIVERSARY SALE SHOPPING TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Anything that you love and want for yourself, add to your wish list and check out once the sale is live for your card level [reminder: if you don’t have a card, the public sale starts July 15th]! If it isn’t currently available in your size and color preference, things are always coming in and out of stock, so check back often!
  2. Remember that Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns! Because of this, I would recommend ordering two sizes on things you are unsure of, to make sure that you can get it at the sale price and return the one that doesn’t work!
  3. Some of the items I mention may currently be out of stock, but check back often for restocks! We’ll also be notifying you of restocks over on our Facebook page and #NSALE group [highly recommend joining the group for a ton of helpful info and nightly giveaways!] 
  4. Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 7/31, things go quick so don’t be like N*Sync and have to say “bye, bye, bye” to everything before it’s gone – shop early!
  5. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you still have questions, ask away below and I’ll answer right here so check back! For more Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, click here!

MISSES

Erin: 5’4″ / Size 2-4 Bottoms / XS-Small Tops

Arlie Day Long Sleeve Jumpsuit • Faherty [size down if in between, wearing in small] // Dolce Vita Sandals [true to size] // Shelby Wide Brim Rancher Hat • Treasure & Bond

Why it’s a miss: The body of this was just a little baggy and long on me! It is a cute vibe, but not for me!

Seasons Knit Long Sleeve Organic Cotton Shirtdress • Faherty [size up, wearing in small and quite small on me] // Agnes Western Boot • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I love the comfort and feel of this dress, however, the small was way too small. Those buttons were trying to bust open at every move!

Zip Suede Miniskirt • Blank NYC [size up, wearing in 27 and still too small] // Amazon Bodysuit [true to size, wearing in small] // Agnes Western Boot • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: While she’s cute, she is way too short [and tiny] for me! I would have to size up 1-2 sizes for this to be comfortable! I love the idea of it, but maybe if I was 10 years younger 😉

Floral Long Sleeve Dress • CeCe [true to size, wearing in small] // Agnes Western Boot • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I love the cut and look of this dress, however, at 5’4 it was too short for my comfort level! If you are petite, this would be an adorable option!

Katy: 5’4″ / Size 2 Bottoms / XS Tops / Sizing up 1-2 sizes for pregnancy

Good American Midi Bodycon Dress 

Levi’s Ex Boyfriend Trucker Jacket [true to size for oversized fit] // Good American Midi Bodycon Dress [size up if in between] // Marc Fisher Pointed Toe Bootie [true to size] 

Don’t get me wrong, this dress feels like great quality and has a lot of stretch, but I just didn’t personally feel super confident in it so it was a miss for me!

Charles Henry Belted Sweater Dress

 Charles Henry Belted Sweater Dress [sized up for pregnancy] // Marc Fisher Pointed Toe Bootie [true to size] 

I had high hopes for this dress, but it just didn’t live up to my ultimate Fall dreams and I just didn’t feel like it was flattering overall.

Claire: 5’5″ / 8-10 Bottoms / M-L Tops

Roxy Smocked Jumpsuit [size up if in between] 

Roxy Smocked Jumpsuit [size up if in between] 

I wanted to love this one, but it was just overall too short in the torso area and gave me camel toe, even with sizing up! For reference, I’m 5’5. If you’re under 5’5 or have a short torso, give this one a try – it was so soft and comfy!

Lauren: 5’6″ / Size 8 Bottoms / Medium Tops

Halogen Faux Leather Midi Skirt

Halogen Faux Leather Midi Skirt [size up, wearing in 8] // Bodysuit [size up, wearing in large]

I was SO excited for this skirt to arrive…. Only to not be able to zip it up. I’d size up at least one if not two if you have a booty and a belly like me!
