hello, Wednesday, and hello fall weather. these days you will find me camped in my backyard. the weather has been picture perfect with sunshine, blue skies, and highs in the 70s. yes, sweater weather has arrived and i am loving every minute. it’s time to sit by the fire and put up my feet. nature has put on a show that can’t be missed and i have the perfect front row seat. so come on in and sit a spell. the only pressing issue is which outfit to wear? classic or trendy style?
which style is your preference? classic or trendy style? me? i love to incorporate both. classic style stands the test of time but it can look dated or stodgy if we don’t stay abreast of trends. and trendy style? well, it can look like a hot mess if we’re not careful so i love to add classics to keep the outfit grounded. today, i’m keeping it simple with a classic black and white color palette. every woman should own a pair of black pants. they’re a wardrobe staple. last year i discovered the most a-ma-zing black pants from Spanx that fit like a dream and are perfect for a chilly fall day. an oversized white popcorn sweater from French Connection with three-quarter sleeves is on trend this year. both pants and sweater are available at Nordstrom my favorite retailer that has oodles of brands to choose from. it’s one-stop shopping at its best especially since i can shop in my pj’s!
to add a spin to a classic outfit add a graphic print sweater from BP a Nordstrom Made brand that’s oh so affordable. trendy lug sole loafers are from Donald Pliner. the leather moto jacket (similar here and here)? that’s a tried and true classic that makes every single must-have list.
a few of my favorite things about Nordstrom.
accessories are the easiest way to incorporate a trend. lug soles are seen everywhere this year. i think i like it! platform loafers are cute and comfy. i particularly like the white stitching around the sole. it’s small detail like this that adds that little extra something.
a big thank you to Nordstrom for this sponsored post. and thank you lovely readers for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas.
