A big trend I’m noticing this fall is split hem pants. They’re everywhere right now from faux leather, to leggings to denim. They’re so flattering and really elongate your legs. While I’ve mostly been seeing this trend done with black, other colors are also coming out to play. I’ve put together a round up below of 12 different pairs in different price points and materials – and most are under $100.
This fall the “shacket” has taken over. Are you familiar with shackets? They’re basically oversized shirt jackets that give off an effortlessly cool vibe. Shirt + Jacket = Shacket. I’ve been on the hunt for a neutral plaid one for awhile now and finally came across this one last week. I purchased it and shared three ways to wear it on instagram, but it sold out so fast. Luckily it’s been re-stocked and is also available in another plaid and solid cream. They’re all so pretty! Today I’m sharing six different ways to style the plaid shacket.
Size note, I’m wearing my normal size and it has a slightly oversized look but the sleeves are fitted. I can still comfortably wear thicker sweatshirts and sweaters under, but if you’re worried about that you an always size up.
It’s officially boot season! One of my favorite boot trends right now are combat boots… or military/army whatever you want to call them. I’ve been really into the combat boot comeback the past few years. When I was in 7th grade I saved up money babysitting to buy my first pair of Dr. Martens boots. I collected a few pairs back then (late 90’s) that I held onto and still wear sometimes! Today I want to share a roundup of combat boots I’m loving at various price points.
I was gifted this beautiful Tamara Mellon pair last year at an event. They’re definitely a splurge but I love all the details on them. They’re so nicely made… heavy duty and keep your feet really warm.
This All Saints pair is slightly more affordable, but still a splurge. They come in a few other colors as well.
Love the detail on this under $200 pair.
A perfect pair of reasonably priced boots. They come in 3 colors and are a great way to try out the trend.
Here’s a classic pair of Dr. Martens. If the past trends have taught me anything, it’s that these boots are pretty timeless.
This year it seems like lighter colored (white, nude, blush) boots are on trend. I recently got this white pair from Everlane.
Hello September! I read a funny meme the other day that said, “I can’t believe it’s already September. Wasn’t it just March 15 years ago?” Pretty much sums up 2020 so far. Somehow the months are speeding by but the days can feel so long. Today I’m sharing my top 5 best sellers from August.
U-Neck Tank – for the 4th month in a row this is my top seller. I don’t even need to say anything more about it at this point. It sells out often but they seem to keep re-stocking it. I picked up a few back ups last month so I don’t have to worry about wearing them out… I still wear them several times a week.
Barefoot Dreams Blanket – I picked this up in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and love the neutral colors and subtle design. It’s no longer on sale, but here are some similar options; here, here and here.
Sunglasses Case – I got this case at the end of last year thinking it would be great for travel in 2020. HA! Although I haven’t really used it that way I will say it’s still a great way to store 5 pairs of sunglasses. It rolls up to a pretty compact size if you are wanting it for travel.
4 Pack of Cotton Adjustable Masks – this has got to be the most 2020 item to make my monthly best sellers. I got these early last month and they quickly became my favorite masks. They’re breathable, adjustable, and all around comfortable. Jeff wears them too!
Toddler Leopard Sneakers – I got these for Crosby last fall but they were recently re-stocked (also available for little kids). They’re super comfortable and go with so much. Luckily they still fit her and she’ll be wearing them all fall!
Hope you’re having a great week – thank you so much for reading and following!
I know we’re already a few days in but happy February! I know the beginning of the year can sometimes drag but I always feel like once we get through February it really speeds up. I’m starting the month by sharing last month’s top sellers. I started this series last year and plan to continue it through 2020. Some months my top items are all over the place… but this month they’re not only all women’s clothing items, but they’re all from Nordstrom!
Let’s break them down…
I tried on this bodysuit in store a few weeks ago loved it! It has such a great fit and is such a fun statement top that can be dressed up or down.
This cardigan has made the list again! That should tell you how good it is. It comes in a few other colors too and is just so cozy. I constantly wear it around the house… but also wear it out and about.
I purchased this sweatshirt a few weeks ago and have already worn it multiple times. I love that it’s a simple sweatshirt with fun balloon sleeves that somehow elevate it a bit. Plus its tie dyed which is SO trendy right now and it’s under $40.
Another piece I tried on in store a few weeks ago. I love this simple under $30 graphic tee. I dressed it up a little with a midi skirt here, but it can also be worn casually. One of those pieces that you’ll reach for all the time.
January always feels like the longest month, for some reason time moves so slow and each week feels like a month. I think it’s the holiday come down/start of the year that just seems to drag. For me it helps to look ahead to spring and I usually start doing that with my wardrobe. Last week I did a little shopping and pulled together some new fresh looks to get me excited for the warmer months ahead.
I pulled 9 different pieces to mix and match (almost all of them are under $100) and paired a few of them with the jeans I wore in.
