Holiday to Everyday Winter Style

Christmas is just a week away! Can you even believe it? I’ve been feeling extra festive lately and dressing for the season. Pops of red and green and a festive plaid go a long way in adding a little cheer to your holiday wardrobe! Today I am sharing 3 looks that can go from the holidays to everyday winter style from Topshop at Nordstrom!

Outfit 1: Crewneck Sweater // Tartan Scarf // Joni High Waist Skinny Jeans (size up 1!) // Combat Boots // Bag

Outfit 2: Turtleneck Sweater Dress // Knee High Boots // Bag

Outfit 3: Ladder Stitch Cross Sweater // Faux Leather Mini (also love this one!) // Bag // Heels

This time of year, I am all about adding a little Christmas to my outfits (check out my thoughts here)! The problem is, I really don’t want to invest in festive pieces that I will only wear 1 month out of the year. I shop for pieces that I can dress up for the holidays and then incorporate into my winter style for the rest of the season. Cute but cozy classics, like sweaters, are my go to! I love a piece that can be dressed up or down and worn all season long!

When it comes to updating my wardrobe each season, I always score the best finds with Topshop at Nordstrom! They carry some great closet classics, but always put a unique spin on them! I also love their on trend pieces that are easy to wear but still make a statement! One of the reasons I love shopping at Nordstrom, is because they carry the brands I love, like Topshop. It’s always easy to find what I am looking for!

This season, I’ve been big into sweaters. From chunky knits to sweater dresses, there’s nothing cozier! A classic pullover is always one of my must haves! I love the rib knit of this one and the neutral shade. It goes with everything and is easy to dress up or down. I’ve been pairing it with a pop of plaid for that festive touch, but will be wearing it well into spring!

My favorite find this year has been this sweater dress! I’ve worn it to work and casually on the weekend. It’s super comfy and a closet staple. Dress it up with heels or boots, or pair it with leggings and sneakers for a comfy winter ootd.

Every year I have to buy at least one red piece. I love the color of this sweater. It’s more of an orange-y red, but still looks festive! Dress it up by pairing it with a skirt or pair it with some denim for a more laidback look.

Need your order in time for Christmas? No worries! Get your order by Christmas Eve if you order before the noon EST on the 22nd. While some items are ineligible, Nordstrom has TONS of items that are!

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!

You’re Invited! 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Rundown!

It’s that time of year again!! The Nordstrom Anniversary Catalog was officially released and that means the most wonderful time of year…aka the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is just around the corner! I look forward to this sale EVERY year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is unlike any other! Typically, sales feature older merchandise at a marked down price, making room for fresh inventory for a new season. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale does the opposite, offering NEW fall merchandise at a discounted price. When I say new, I mean fresh fall styles that haven’t hit the shelves yet. Basically you are getting the newest fall pieces at a sale price!

WHAT IS ON SALE? 

ALL of the goodies won’t be known until the sale officially begins, but the Nordstrom Anniversary catalog gives a great sneak peek of some of the offerings! I’ve already browsed it a few times and circled a bunch items I want to add to my closet! I love shopping for new fall pieces to add to my wardrobe, especially shoes and denim!! I always find great deals on new staples for work too, because we all know one of the best parts of being a teacher is the back to school shopping! It’s a great time to stock up on fall and winter must haves for the entire family! You can get ahead of the game by downloading the catalog HERE and figuring out your game plan!

 

The sale officially opens to the public on July 19th, but you can get a sneak peek, and even start shopping early (what?!?) if you are a cardholder starting July 12th! Cardholders get 7 whole days to shop the sale before it is even open to the public (even more so if you are an icon or ambassador cardholder)! Why does this matter you ask?? These items are new and discounted and hot ticket items often sell out before the sale even opens to the public!

Becoming a card holder is EASY! Don’t miss out on shopping early and sign up HERE.

This way, you get to shop 7 days early. This is definite bonus as you get access to the sale before the public and get first pick on hot fall finds at their sale price before they sell out!

 

WHERE TO SHOP 

Obviously you can head to your nearest Nordstrom to shop the sale, but I prefer shopping online from the comfort of my own home! I also live 3 hours from the nearest Nordstom…soooo there’s that! Online shopping is easy and with free returns and exchanges the process of finding those must have pieces is effortless! Throughout the sale (July 12th – August 4th), I will have posts featuring my sale favorites on the blog! I plan on sharing my top sale picks, shoe favorites, styling tips, teacher faves and more! If there is something you want to see let me know!

My first post will be live shortly after the sale opens, so make sure to stop by and share what you are buying! If you are interested in what I picked up last year, check out this review of my purchases, teacher picks, denim guide and all of the other nsale goodies I featured HERE!

TIPS FOR SHOPPING THE SALE

1.  SHOP, SHOP, SHOP – This is a huge one and something I always do every year! Hot selling items will go fast (Nordstrom anticipates some being gone within 24 hours!). Order early, try on in the comfort of your own home and keep what you can’t live without. Remember, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns! Because I live almost 3 hours from the nearest Nordstrom, I find that this works best for me! I usually place an order as soon as the sale opens (and will probably place a few more before the end of the sale, if I’m being honest), and plan on trying everything at home to determine what works for me. I typically snag a few items that I am even on the fence about because I can’t tell you HOW MANY TIMES I have debated a purchase only for me to decide I did want it just as it sold out! Find out sale details an how to become a cardholder HERE so you can get access to all the goodies before they sell out!

2. MAKE A LIST (and check it twice!) – While I firmly believe in buying more and returning what you can live without during the sale, I also think it’s important to not go overboard! I mean do you really need the North Face down parka coat if you live somewhere that rarely gets below 50 degrees? Just because it’s a great deal doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a must buy! I’ve too often been tempted to purchase items I really don’t need, so now I always go in with a shopping list! Write down the items you are looking for and keep your eyes peeled for good deals in those categories!

3. GET FAMILIAR WITH WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE – Spend some time looking over your wardrobe before you shop. Not only does this ensure you don’t walk away with items you already have, but it also helps you find pieces to incorporate into your closet! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve eyed something only to realize I have an almost identical version at home! I have also used this trick to find pieces to style with items already in my closet. One of my favorite things to do is look for fall accessories that I can pair with some of my easy summer dresses. It’s so easy to turn a summer tee dress into a fall appropriate look by pairing it with a cardi, scarf and some boots!

I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days until the sale starts!

Let the shopping begin!
