if it’s Spring then it’s time to add a stripe or even two into our wardrobes. nothing beats a nautical look whether it’s a navy and white color combo or black and white. so how do we keep stripes looking modern and fresh rather than ho-hum? it’s elementary my dear! simply add a sweater blazer to your stripes along with a pair of chic white pants. yes! today’s post is all about a sweater blazer, stripes, and the always chic and effortless color combination black and white.
Nic + Zoe is a favorite brand of mine that Nordstrom has in stock. in fact, Nordstrom is known for carrying a wide assortment of brands from high-end to affordable. are you in the mood for athletic wear? check out, Zella. looking for skincare? may i suggest Elemis? jewelry? i have an affinity for Lagos. then there are always questions from readers about my lipstick. an affordable favorite is Mac available at Nordstrom. today, i’m wearing killing me softly. and shoes? well, we all know Nordstrom is known for its wide variety of shoes and its shoe sales. is it any wonder i have a soft spot for this retailer?
today’s ootd couldn’t be easier to put together. many of us already have a sweater blazer, striped tee, and white pants hanging in our closet. even if you are missing one or two items i have you covered. stripes. check. sweater blazer. nope. white pants. looking for the right pair.
white pants can be tricky to wear and they might not be on your radar screen quite yet as they’re typically reserved for warmer weather. but, hey, Georgia is flirting with seventy degrees as of late so i’ll go easy on myself and jump the gun. the fit of these pull-on pants is so flattering with a wide waistband and hidden front panel that has a tummy-smoothing effect. add a gorgeous silver heart necklace, a jaunty scarf tied around my neck, black wedge sandals from Jeffrey Campbell, and a sleek handbag from Coach that can be carried as a clutch or crossbody bag. didn’t i tell you it was easy to put together a chic outfit that keeps your stripes looking modern?
sweater blazers are always a favorite of mine Spring or Fall. love the longer length of this Nic + Zoe sweater blazer that has pockets! the striped tee is old (similar here and here) as is the scarf (similar here and here) but the white pants (fits tts. i’m wearing a size 8) are brand spanking new with a flattering fit, non-stop comfort, and flat front. if you are looking for comfortable shoes along with height take a look at wedges. this pair of black wedge sandals are from Jeffrey Campbell with a square toe and comfy fit due to a cushioned footbed. don’t forget to personalize your outfit with accessories. today, i reached for a silver heart necklace from Lagos that adds my personal spin to this outfit. handbags are always icing on the cake. lately, Coach has won my heart in the handbag department. this sleek black handbag converts from a clutch to a crossbody.
a few of my favorite things about Nordstrom.
