What Caroline bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019:
These are three items that Caroline purchased from the Nordstrom sale! From Caroline: I needed a winter coat as I didn’t have one and I’m really into the “shiny” jacket trend. This jacket is perfect. I’m wearing my usual size of a small and it fits perfectly. It is also packable and comfortable! This jacket comes in petite sizing as well as a bright orange/yellow and a white color. Hannah the Bachelorette has this jacket! I also purchased three of those v-neck tees. They’re super comfortable and come in a lot of different colors. I sized up to a medium as I think they run small! Lastly, I got suckered into buying this cardigan! My office gets very cold and I would usually never spend this much on any item of clothing, however, once I tried it on, I was sold. This is quite possibly the most comfortable item I own and I justified buying it knowing I will be wearing this every day this fall and winter! I’m wearing my usual size of a small/medium!
What I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019:
This outfit is so perfect for the upcoming fall and winter! If you’re lounging around the house or hitting the gym, the blush pink of the sweater paired with the gold in the sneakers is so fun and feminine and provides a nice pop of color during these gloomy months! I’m wearing a size medium in the jacket and a size 9 in the sneakers (my normal size). Many are saying to size down in these sneakers, but I didn’t because I don’t like to wear socks with mine!
This lightweight cardigan is great for any season! It comes in five colors and it runs large so definitely size down! I am wearing a size small and I am usually a medium. The wedged sneakers are also great for any season and can dress up any outfit. I’m wearing a size 9.5 and they come in black and the color I’m wearing, taupe!
This cardigan is the comfiest thing I have ever owned. I was very sticker shocked, but let me tell you when I say it is WORTH the price! I’m wearing a size small/medium. I’ll be wearing these wedged sneakers all fall long as well. Wearing a size 9.5!
Here are a couple of different ways to style a basic cardigan! I love this pink cardigan. I’m wearing a size small as it runs large! The long sleeve shirt is a must-have fall basic item for your closet and comes in other patterns and colors! Wearing a size medium here. The boots are so comfortable AND they’re waterproof! I’m wearing a size 9.5.
This is my go-to fall outfit: A flannel, jeans and boots! This flannel is so cute and it runs large, however, I decided to size up a lot as I like a big, oversized fit. I’m wearing a size XXL! The jeans are so comfortable and a great buy during this sale. I’m wearing a size 28 These waterproof boots are a must-have as well. Wearing a size 9.5.
Another outfit I will be living in this fall! This jacket is so cozy and elegant. You can dress it up or down depending on what you’re doing and it’s very affordable and amazing quality. I’m wearing a size medium! These waterproof boots again are the best! Size 9.5!
OK…I get that this jacket seems very expensive, however, this was my one splurge item from the sale and I knew I would wear it SO much! If you’re looking for a nice, longline, dressy jacket, I would highly recommend this one! It comes in a dark green and a gray as well. I’m wearing the dusty pink in a size medium! These boots are the best, I’m telling you! Size 9.5!
This sweater is SO comfortable! I get that it seems very expensive, however, I was looking for quality items during this sale that I knew I would wear over and over again this fall and winter. I’m wearing a size medium! These booties are so comfortable and cute! I love the little cut out on the side. They also come in a pretty leopard print that I almost bought but I have so much leopard print I decided to go for the snakeskin! I’m wearing a size 9.5! These jeans are so comfortable and work with the bump! I’m wearing a size 28.
This jacket is so cute and comfortable! Fall and winter can be pretty dreary, so I wanted to add a fun pop of color to my outfits sometimes! It’s also super affordable during this sale! I’m wearing a size medium! I’m wearing a size 9.5 in the boots and in the sneakers I have been wearing above!

This cardigan is the same brand but a different color than the one above! This is an outfit I know I will wear all season. The snakeskin booties add a fun element to an otherwise “plain” outfit and they’re so cute! I’m wearing a size medium in the cardigan and a size 9.5 in the booties! These jeans are great and super discounted as well. I’m wearing a size28.
Denim on denim is in and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! This denim jacket is SO soft and comfortable and I love the tie option to give your waist a little cinch! I’m wearing a size medium. I’m wearing the same jeans as above in a size28.
A military jacket is a MUST for fall! This jacket is such high quality and SO comfortable! It’s a little bit of a splurge but trust me when I say you won’t regret it! I’m wearing a size medium.

I’m wearing a sizelarge. Unfortunately, this tee is currently sold out. However, I’ve linked a similar one from the same brand below and will let you all know when it’s restocked!
I saw a lot of people linking this cardigan, and to be honest I thought I could find the same one for a lot cheaper elsewhere. However, I totally understood why everyone is loving this cardigan when I tried it on! It is SO soft and such high quality. I think this is a must-buy for sure. I’m wearing a size medium! These black booties are so fun with it to dress it up and the wedged sneakers to dress it down. Both shoes are a size 9.5! These jeans in size 28 are so comfortable too!

Summer nights can be chilly, and having a lightweight sweatshirt in your closet is perfect for cool summer nights!

This bikini not only looks cute, but feels amazing! The stripes have a towel-like texture to them and are so soft. I like how the stripes are vertical so it has a very slimming effect. I am also wearing a size large in this bikini but am usually a size medium!
This dress is a perfect spring to summer transition piece! I definitely plan on wearing this to a summer barbeque this year and it’s very lightweight and comfortable. I’m wearing my normal size of a medium!
Everyone needs a hot pink bikini in their summer swimsuit lineup! I found this hot pink bikini and knew I had to have it. I’m wearing a size large and it fits perfectly for pregnancy, but am usually a size medium!
I saw this dress as I was checking out so I did not purchase this in store because they sold out of my size , however, I plan purchase online yesterday! This dress is SO cute!

I haven’t shopped at H&M in forever and now I’m regretting that, haha. I found so many cute items. I will show you below my favorites, I tried on more but I didn’t like the quality. Also linked other finds that are online!
My stats: 5’7″ – 150 lbs (6 months pregnant) My normal size is a US 6/M, I will show you below what sizes I’m actually wearing.
Amazon hauls have been my favorite thing to do lately! I love that you all love them so much and they’re so fun to do!
Here is the second part of my May Amazon haul. I am wearing a medium in every item and I am 5’7″ and pregnant so these options work for with or without a bump!
A little disclaimer about my Amazon hauls: I order a LOT of clothing, but only promote the items I really love! The clothing that flops does not make it onto my hauls so you know the clothing you’re purchasing is only high quality!
At the bottom of this post, I added accessories, shoes and items to finish off your look, all affordable!
This dress is adorable! It has adjustable spaghetti straps and a tie-front for a little extra detail! The ruffle detail makes this dress the perfect flirty spring to summer dress that would be great for a day out! The only thing is I wish I had sized up to a large because of my bump! Had I not been pregnant, the medium would have fit perfectly.
This dress is another that I loved but wish I had sized up due to the bump! Other than that, it runs true to size! This dress is the perfect casual summer dress that you’ll find yourself wearing again and again! The colors are gorgeous and it also comes in two other stripe color patterns!
This kimono is probably my favorite find from this haul! It’s advertised as a beach coverup, but I wore this as a kimono and got so many compliments! It’s a great versatile piece to have in your closet and perfect for those cool summer nights. If you’re not a big fan of tribal print, this comes in 15 other patterns that are all very summery!
This is another favorite of mine from this haul! It is SO cute and fits perfectly. The smocked top is very in right now and the multicolored pattern makes this a fun option for any occasion, plus, it has POCKETS! This also comes in a few other colors and patterns that I will be going back to get!
Another dress that I loved was this white bell sleeve dress! The material is a faux linen that is perfect for summer. The ruffled bottom as well as the tie detailing make this an easy dress to dress up or down depending on the occasion. It’s also not see-through and comes in three other pretty colors!
This T-Shirt is absolutely adorable. I love the details on it and how it can be dressed up or down. I wore this with this black ruffled skirt and was perfect for a day around town! This would be a great tee for Memorial Day or July 4th with red or denim shorts!
I’ve gotten so much amazing feedback on my Amazon Haul blogs that I decided to put together a third! This is in no way sponsored, just sharing some clothes from Amazon that I purchased that I love and know you all will too!
Here are some more spring-inspired pieces to get you ready for warmer weather!
I am in LOVE with this top. It’s so cute and on-trend right now with a camouflage print and mesh V-neck insert. This would be the perfect top for a concert. I am wearing a medium in this top as well and it also runs true to size!
This grid print blouse is another on-trend style for spring that you cannot go wrong with. A printed blouse should be a staple in every closet as it can be dressed up or down or layered depending on the weather! I love this one however, it is a one-size so definitely keep that in mind when ordering. I would say this one fits exactly like a medium!
This romper is absolutely adorable. This would be flattering on any body type with the belt that you tie around your waist for a more fitted look. I am wearing a medium in this as well and it runs true to size! Also comes in two other colors: red and white!
Another spring staple: A jumpsuit! The color is so pretty and I love the high neck and wide, cropped leg style. I am also wearing a medium in this jumpsuit and it also comes in pink, grey, green and black! This would be a great transition piece as well with a cardigan or with a wedge for a summer barbecue!
This bell sleeve blouse is absolutely adorable. This is the perfect casual top that can be dressed up with a fitted skirt for any business casual event. I am wearing another medium and this comes in 13 other colors including some stripe and floral patterns!
