happy Monday, gang! time is ticking by at a rapid pace. September is coming to an end, which means one thing. the holidays are fast approaching. Halloween is 34 days and counting, 59 days until Thanksgiving, and Christmas is a mere 89 days away. with the supply chain out of whack this year, i’m not sure when to start shopping… me thinks sooner rather than later. waiting until Black Friday seems like a gamble? who knows? welcome to 2021, where flexibility is the name of the game. the good news is we can still amp up our style game while we pivot. y’all know i ‘ve sung the praises of the iconic motorcycle jacket for years. today, i share just how versatile this jacket truly is as i’m styling a black leather moto jacket for day and evening. there’s never been a better time to stay modern, fresh, and most importantly, relevant.
thanks for all of your patience while the new website gets up and running. there are still a few minor tweaks, but all-in-all the transition from old to new went smoothly. see, it’s never too late to try something new, whether that’s an exercise routine, skincare, tweaking your diet, adopting a new trend, or launching a new website. it’s never too late for anything. what choice are you making today to achieve that end goal?
the weather has been absolutely perfect the past week, or so. not only is it time to break out our sweaters but boots too! and my beloved blue jeans are back in action. but nothing makes me happier than donning a moto jacket when the temps cool down. this jacket has staying power and always lands on my top ten list. during the July Nordstrom Anniversary sale, i snagged this little number from Halogen, a Nordstrom Made brand that’s one of my favorites and is so affordable. it’s been featured on the blog several times and is sold out. but how adorable is this quilted faux leather jacket from Halogen? other Nordstrom Made brands i’m fond of is Caslon, Zella for athleticwear, and Nordstrom Signature for unique pieces. it’s one-stop shopping at its best – one reason i love Nordstrom.
today, i’m styling one leather moto jacket (sold out, similar here and here) for day and evening. the daytime version of the mighty motorcycle jacket couldn’t be easier to put together. jeans – check. sweater – check. boots – check. the Chelsea boots are water-resistant and have an on-trend lug sole which keeps this simple outfit modern and fresh. plus, they are such a comfortable boot to wear. a crossbody Coach handbag adds that extra touch.
a few of my favorite things about Nordstrom.
what could be easier than exchanging blue jeans for a midi skirt? and swapping Chelsea boots with a pointed toe bootie? that’s how this ootd transformed from day to evening with ease. the bias-cut silk stretch skirt is from Nordstrom Signature and has a graceful flow. pairing a moto jacket with a skirt gives this outfit a modern touch while chasing the chill away. when those north winds begin to blow, simply add a pair of tights for an extra layer of warmth.
a big thank you to Nordstrom for this sponsored post. and thank you, lovely readers, for supporting the brands that allow me to share fresh content and new ideas.
