Nordstrom Try On's - Friday Finds

Happy Friday!! Instead of my usual Friday Finds, I thought I'd share some real life finds I tried on at Nordstrom over the weekend. I clearly have a distinct color palette I'm currently loving, which tends to be what I'm drawn to every winter - neutrals and pinks!

I wasn't a huge fan of the original release of the Atlantic-Pacific line at Nordstrom, but this sweater is adorable in person. It's a little hard to see in the picture but the nude looking stripe is actually a shimmering blush pink. The stripes remind me of something Gap would have sold 20 years ago in the best possible way. I did size up for the bump but I think it will work well slightly oversized post-pregnancy also. Would love to wear this with white jeans if I had a pair of maternity!! This came home with me. 

Gibson Pullover Sweater - wearing size XL

I really wanted to love this sweater, it is so soft (almost like fleece) and the color is really pretty in person. The size available was a little too loose-y goose-y on me though, I felt like I was going to show my bra or that it would fall off my shoulders at any moment. Would definitely recommend this if you size down!

Sejour Cardigan - wearing size 1X 
(also wearing Caslon Tee size XL)

I've never heard of this brand before, likely because it's plus size only. I was immediately drawn to this and grabbed it in the smallest size available and I actually don't feel like it's overwhelmingly big. I probably could have gone one size down but I like the fit on this. I really wanted a LOFT sweater that was super similar this fall, but that one was super itchy. This one is amazingly soft - definitely a keeper!! This came home with me.

Oh my gosh I love this sweater. It didn't really work on the bump (especially in a medium - would have preferred a large or xl!) but I love the idea of the high low if I weren't working with a giant stomach, and this is actually one of those turtlenecks that works on larger chests, thanks to the thicker knit and the more cowl-like turtleneck. Plus the color is so pretty!! 

Caslon Tie-Front Cardigan - wearing size XL

I really wanted to love this since the color is so pretty and it's really soft, but it was just a little too oversized and too low cut on me. I would recommend sizing down! 

Sejour Polka Dot Sweater - wearing size 1X

This is another plus size top. I thought it was a lot prettier in person than in pictures, the polka dots were a lot more subtle - more a texture change than anything else. But the sleeves were too short on me so it was not a winner.

Gibson Sweater Blazer - wearing size XL

This sweater blazer is gorgeous in person, I love the color!! It's the perfect fit too, and since it's made out of a sweater material it's really comfortable too. I also love the blue striped lining on the sleeves, it's such a fun detail. I really wanted to bring this home with me, I just couldn't see it fitting into my baby lifestyle for spring. 

Caslon Striped Tee - wearing size XL 

I love Caslon tees and this one is no exception. The stripes are perfect and the fit is just slightly slouchy and oversized. The perfect closet basic. 

Halogen Colorblock Sweater - wearing size XL

When I shared that I bought a couple things on Instagram, a couple people guessed it was this sweater, but nope! It's really pretty in person (although I didn't love that the blush section had a bit of shimmer) and nice and lightweight, which would be good for later spring weather or layered under something else (perhaps that blush blazer above, hmmmm??). But I didn't really love the way it fit on the bump, it was a little too tight through the body but oversized in the sleeves.

So tell me - which is your favorite?
