Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Jeans, Pants, and Leggings

I’m one of those dorky people who can’t wait to wear their new purchases. This entire outfit was purchased from the #NSale on Wednesday and worn by yours truly the very next day. Ha! I couldn’t help it! I was just so excited!

Tee- J. Crew, Necklace- Lulu Frost, Sneakers- Kate Spade

I can already tell these jeans (above and below) are going to be a staple…

I already know these are going to be one of my favorite purchases from the #NSale this year. I wore the tar out the distressed version from last years NSale, so for me, these were a no brainer. Plus, I’ve been looking for a pair of casual blue jeans that weren’t so distressed and had a raw hem. I like that these aren’t dark blue or really light blue but somewhere in the middle. That’s a long way to say, I really like the wash on this pair. Oh, and I’ve already worn them. See, no brainer.

AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans

Speaking of raw edge, do these grey jeans look familiar? I posted them as the best fitting grey jeans on the market (here). Well, here they are again! This time with a raw hem. Moral of the story, if you’ve been wanting a pair of grey jeans, look no further. If you have this pair of grey jeans and you want to update them, cut the bottom hem off!  My sister already did! I can’t wait until she sees that she was actually a trendsetter!

Paige Verdugo Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans

When I saw these jeans laying down with this funky hem, I turned my nose up at them. Then the little voice told me, “you know better than that”, so I picked them up and took them into the dressing room. Well, the rest is history. I still love my black skinny jeans, but I’ve been wanting to mix it up a bit. I thought I would do a cropped flare or a raw edge, but these combine the two, and I’m loving it! Good thing I listened to that little voice.

Paige Hoxton High Waist Undone Hem Skinny Jeans

If you’re not really into the baggy boyfriend jean look but kinda want to participate in the trend, these jeans are your answer. They have that boyfriend jean feel, but they are still flattering. And like with most boyfriend jeans, these jeans allow you the flexibility to cuff or roll to any length.

Rag & Bone The Dre Released Hem Slim Boyfriend Jeans

If you are looking for that miracle skinny jean that sucks you in and gives you a long lean line, look no further. These are it. The high waist sucks you in, the fabric is super soft like leggings, and the wash is dark and disguising. If you don’t have a jean like this is your closet, try them. Before you know it, they’ll become your go to pair.

Hudson Barbara High Waist Super Skinny Jeans – If you are taller, they also come in long.

You want a dark, elongating skinny jean that’s not high waisted, you say? Wait, you want all that for less than $50? Well, no problemo. Articles of Society has got you covered! I am in love with this brand because of the fit and the price point. The only down side is that they bag out pretty quickly. You’ll definitely want to order a size down.

Articles of Society Mya Skinny Jeans

I have been wearing tight black skinny pants for the past couple of years and loving them, but I have been wanting something a little different to add to the mix. Not only are these so darn stylish, but they are so comfy! They are the perfect work pant or black dress pant. I can’t wait to wear them with my new black ballet flats!

Halogen Kick Flare Knit Ankle Pants

Now, let’s talk about leggings!

The first important thing about leggings is that they are comfortable, and the second important thing about leggings is that they are not see through. These meet both requirements! Plus, they have very flattering seams that run up the leg, which makes them look more like pants!

Halogen Seamed Leggings

These leggings are just cool. Like I feel cool just by having them on. Ha! I can’t wait to wear these leggings with my new favorite top to wear with leggings, a sports bra, and sneakers on a day I’m NOT working out. Maybe I’ll wear this outfit for an upcoming travel day, or maybe I’ll wear this outfit to just run errands. Either way, I know I’m going to feel cool!

Nordstrom Moto Washed Cotton Blend Leggings

Well, I know we were all a little frustrated that the Nordstrom Site has been down, but that’s life in the big city! Thanks for letting me know your favorites. It makes things super fun! So fun, that I decided to give a few readers their favorite shoes! Congrats to Marcia and Yolanda!

So, what’s your favorite(s) from this post? I want to know your thoughts!

    I love the black Paige jeans. I bought them yesterday and they are fabulous! I also tried on the AG jeans with the raw hem, but I didn’t get them because I don’t really “need” more jeans. However, now I’m second guessing my decision….maybe I should go back and get them, lol! Also, I love the Kate Spade shoes on you. 🙂

    You are so smart! Tried the Rag and Bone and loved them but the big cuff fold threw me off….. didn’t think about adjusting the fold (guess I thought it was sewn like that). Thank you, been trying to find a boyfriend jean forever that wasn’t too baggy!

    Thanks so much, Carly! For those of us who don’t live near a Nordstrom store, your picks and suggestions are like shopping with a best girlfriend! 🙂 Thought I was good on jeans, now I’ve ordered the AoS and the Hudson in addition to AG’s…oh my. Can’t wait to get my clothes, thanks to you. 🙂

    The AG jeans are my most worn -I swear I could sleep in them. They are so flattering, and they get all the details right – wash, fit, look, comfort (and never lose their shape even after multiple wears). I am taking your advice on the Paige denim grey jeans – regretted all year last year I didn’t buy them. They seem very versatile and I love how they can pair with all the fall colors like burgundy, blush, khaki, dark blue and of course black and white!

    These are great posts. Thank you!
    2 outfits I’m shopping for with this year’s sale are my 20th college reunion this fall – a daytime football game tailgate outfit (with red accents for Stanford) and then a evening cocktail party outfit. While these pants are awesome for my everyday wardrobe, I’m hoping to find other non-denim outfits because I think everyone else will be in denim.

    How would you say the AG jeans run? TTS? I normally wear a 27 in jeans (J Crew, Madewell)–but I’ve read that these AG may fit smaller than others. . .just don’t want to feel like they are way too tight!

    • Carly Lee July 16, 2017

      I think AG runs TTS. But, I like tight jeans, but these don’t feel too tight.
