Today’s post is in collaboration with Nordstrom. All opinions are my own!

Happy Thursday friends! Yesterday was my first day back in the classroom! As much as I loved it, I forget how totally exhausted I am after being back with the kiddos! I have the greatest group this year and know it’s going to be a great school year! 


The start of school definitely means fall is ALMOST here! While it’s still warm, there is a crispness in the air, the leaves are slowly starting to turn and it’s almost sweater weather! I’ve been stocking up on new fall pieces that I can wear now and transition into cooler weather! Free People is one of my go to brands for new seasonal pieces as they have the best neutrals that often come in a variety of colors. One of the reasons I LOVE shopping at Nordstrom is their wide variety of brands, like Free People, making them my one stop shop for all things fall! When shopping for fall, I am all about the basics, looking for neutral pieces that can be styled many different ways and layered up! 


Chunky Knit Sweaters: I LIVE in cozy sweaters from September to March. I love chunkier knits because I can layer them easily and they are the perfect alternative to a jacket when the weather cools down. This cozy cardi has been my favorite lately! Despite the knit, it’s heavier than expected and will be my go to all fall and winter long! 


Comfy T-shirts: I’m all about comfort, and in the fall and winter a t-shirt is often my base layer, so it obviously needs to be comfy! This one comes in 5 colors and I want them all!! Not only is it ridiculously soft, but I adore the key-hole cutout which adds a cool touch that will be perfect peaking from under a sweater or cardi! 


Distressed Denim: A great pair of distressed jeans is one of my year round must haves! I absolutely LIVE in this pair, and the best part? They come in multiple washes (see the widget below!) and are under $100! Pair your favorite distressed denim with sandals or mules now and booties and OTK boots when the season changes!

Cross Front Sweater + #WIWT Link Up

Sweater: c/o Shein (also available in cream here) // Jeans: BlankNYC // Shoes: Steve Madden // Necklace: Taudrey // Bag: Luana Italy (get 15% off with code ‘TWENTIESGIRLSTYLE’ // Sunnies: Illesteva via Ditto – try DITTO for 1 month free! Use code ‘TWENTIESGIRLSTYLE  // 

This green cross front sweater immediately caught my eye when I was doing a little online browsing. I was drawn to the the chunky knit and the overlapped cross front, and knew it would make a great piece to throw on with some distressed skinnies. Soooo, that’s just what I did! I love this cozy laid-back look that has touches of Spring (super distressed denim, lace up flats and a white bag), but is still warm enough for a sunny day in the low 50s. I’m pretty much obsessed with this sweet top and am already thinking I may need it in the cream
