Sweaters for the Holidays with Nordstrom

The holidays are upon us and Christmas cheer is in the air! I rarely wear red unless it’s the last two months of the year. That’s when the color seems to take over my wardrobe! This time of year I am all about incorporating holiday cheer into my wardrobe, but in subtle ways and with pieces that I can wear all winter long. My go to is ALWAYS a great sweater and I found so many great options at Nordstrom this year!

Outfit 1: Ribbed Long Sleeve Sweater Dress // Plaid Fringe Blanket Scarf // Block Heel Booties

Outfit 2: Thermal Tunic Sweater (this one is super similar, just size up one!) // Washed Black Denim Skirt // Stripe Blanket Wrap Scarf // Knee High Boots

Outfit 3: Plaid Cardigan // Ribbed Long Sleeve Tee // High Waist Skinny Jeans // Lace Up Booties // PomPom Beanie (love the colors in this one!)

Now that the temperatures have dropped, all I want to wear are sweaters! A good sweater has a magical quality. It can be dressed up or down, worn to work or lounging around the house and is versatile enough to be worn all fall and winter long. I have been LOVING the sweaters in the BP department at Nordstrom. Not only do they have a great selection of on trend pieces, but they also have tons of reasonably priced options.

Nordstrom is always my first stop when it’s time for a wardrobe refresh each season. They have a wide selection of items to choose from and I love finding the seasons best trends and classic closet staples all in one place! Not to mention, they have amazing customer service and their everyday free shipping makes ordering online a breeze.

As mentioned above, I love incorporating a little cheer into my outfits during the holidays. I don’t however want to spend a lot of money on pieces that I will only wear one month and then put away for the year. That’s why I love incorporating festive touches in subtle ways with pieces that I will mix and match all season long (I talked about this last year in this post!). Keep reading to find out my favorite ways to add a festive touch to my sweaters!

  1. A Plaid Scarf: I’ve been all about the sweater dresses lately and this ribbed option is so flattering! I love that it can be dressed up or down. It’s a great contender for a holiday party! I added a festive touch by pairing it with this amazingly cozy plaid scarf. Nothing screams holly jolly like a plaid scarf! This scarf is one that can be worn through the holidays and all winter long. It would make a great gift to those cold weather dwellers on your list!

2. Red: A red sweater is a MUST HAVE for the holidays! This option is so pretty and SO soft! The longer length makes it easy to wear with leggings or tucked into denim or a skirt. Valentine’s Day is also just a few months away, which gives you an excuse to wear this pop of red from December to February!

3. Plaid: I mentioned a plaid scarf above, but plaid in general is ALWAYS a good idea for the holidays! This plaid cardigan gives a subtle nod to the holidays without going over the top. It’s a piece that I am sure I will wear all winter long and straight into spring! The colors, tan and pink, are pretty and feminine.

Fall’s Must Have Booties

I am so excited about today’s post featuring two of my favorite fall looks to date! As much as I love summer, fall fashion is by far my favorite! I love layering, chunky knits and all the accessories (scarves and hats galore!). My favorite part about fall fashion though? Booties! I am excited to share this year’s fall must have booties from Nordstrom!

Outfit 1: Dolman Sleeve Sweater // Denim // Block Heel Booties // Hat

Outfit 2: Ribbed Top // Denim // Striped Scarf // Hat // Block Heel Booties

Every fall I shop for the perfect fall booties. As a teacher, I want a pair of booties that I can wear in the classroom and last all day on my feet. I want a pair that are great for everyday and go with everything and have just the right heel height. This year, I snagged this pair of Halogen Block Heel Booties from Nordstrom and I have to say they totally fit the bill and I have officially deemed as fall’s must have booties.

Nordstrom is always my first stop when it’s time for a wardrobe refresh each season. They have a wide selection of items to choose from and I love finding the seasons best trends and classic closet staples all in one place! Not to mention, they have amazing customer service and their everyday free shipping makes ordering online a breeze.

These block heeled booties are comfortable and easy to walk in. I love the flattering pointed toe and the minimalistic look. They go with everything! They come in three colors, grey, black and this bisque taupe shade, which I opted for because I knew it would be easy to mix and match with just about everything! The best part? These booties are just under $100, which is a rare find when it comes to boots as high quality as these!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Review of What I Bought & 22 Styled Looks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public today!! If you’ve been shopping the sale like I have, you know this year there are so many amazing deals! I am hoping to pick up a few more goodies today as they restock the sale for the public!

Today I am sharing some of the pieces I picked up during early access (and a few pieces I already owned and are part of the sale!). I am still waiting on a few packages to arrive, but hope to update this with pictures when I get them (hopefully a few arrive later today)! I have shared a little bit of insight on each piece. I have styled a few of these pieces multiple ways! Scroll all the way to the bottom for shoe reviews!

BLANKNYC Next Level Suede Moto Jacket (NOW: $126 // AFTER SALE: $188 // SIZE: XS): I purchased the BLANKNYC Morning Suede Jacket in coffee bean 3 years ago and still wear it all the time. When I saw the gorgeous grey option, I knew I had to snag it! I love that this one doesn’t have the bottom belt buckle that the Morning Suede version’s do. This jacket fits like a glove and the suede is buttery soft. I have a small in my Morning Suede jacket, but decided to go with an XS in this one for a closer fit. If you plan on layering chunky sweaters, I would size up, but otherwise, stick to your regular size.

Good American High Waist Skinny Jeans (NOW: $113 // AFTER SALE: $169 // SIZE: 00): If you are going to splurge on one piece of denim, let it be these.

However, if you live somewhere the temps drastically drop, this is the cozy knit for you! This is one that will layer perfectly when it is freezing out!

This jacket fits like a glove and the suede is buttery soft. I have a small in my Morning Suede jacket, but decided to go with an XS in this one for a closer fit. If you plan on layering chunky sweaters, I would size up, but otherwise, stick to your regular size.
