Fall Fashion Round-Up

Oh Fall, the season when I suddenly feel the need to pin every tall boot, cozy sweater and blazer I see in fashion posts and websites. But then the reality comes that I don’t need to spend exorbitant amounts of money on most of these trendy, cozy, non-investment fashion items.


Luckily one of my best friends works at LOFT, a store that has become a reliable store and website for seasonal items both classic and trendy. Liz is far more fashionable than me, so over the years she has done a great job sending me emails and texts with her recommended items. This year, instead of relying on random texts, I asked her to put together a list of favorites in advance of my day of shopping in Dallas. I love her style and ended up buying eight of these items. Hopefully these inspire your next shopping trip too!


Better yet, right now, LOFT is having a 40% off sale on their website!


Here’s the list she provided, along with her color commentary.

Coatigan This item needs no introduction. It’s so super comfy, you will see me wearing this over everything this fall.

Relaxed Dolman T This is the perfect basic. The fabric is magically soft, it’s a great length to wear with high waist skinny jeans, I’ve been tucking into skirts too.

Long sleeve split neck I absolutely LOVE this Vintage blush color as well as the length. One of my friends paired it with plum skinny work pants and it looked amazing.

Relaxed Turtleneck SweaterOkay, I know turtlenecks are on trend but I was NOT a fan until I found this guy. Perfect non-itchy material, and the cut is on point. I feel like it’s a solid work to weekend piece, I’m wearing the black one with a grey pencil skirt and dark rinse skinnies.

High waisted skinny jeansThese are my favorite jeans of all time. I usually go for their modern skinny, but the high-waisted version is SO comfortable and makes yo booty look nice.  :-) This might be me transitioning into mom jeans. Only time will tell. I’ve also worn my pair like 4 times and only minimal baggy knees after sitting at my desk all day. Not bad at all compared to other jeans.

Tech skinniesI live in the black pair for work whether paired with blouses or sweaters. These are a total wardrobe staple.


Mock neck floppy dress: I have a feeling this might not be for all body types but it’s super cute on a ton of people I have seen wearing it. I am going to pick it up this week! Fabric is comfy considering it’s more of a work dress.


Drapery tweed joggers – obsessed. Live in them, white T and a black blazer with wedge sneakers or black patent pointed pumps. Also maybe with a black turtleneck?

So there you have it friends, my more fashionable friend’s picks for Fall!

What are you loving this Fall?

Friday Favorites – Under $100

There are just THREE days left to stock up on some of your favorite brands and stock your closet for the upcoming Fall season. Once the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends each of these items will immediately return to full price.  Since I know I’m not the only person on a budget these days, I thought it’d be helpful to feature a round-up of my favorite under $100 items that are still available.

Grab your cup of coffee and get shopping because many of these items are selling out quickly!  To make things easier, I broke my picks out over three categories: home, shoes and clothing.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale HomeI highly recommend snagging a pack of these candles for hostess gifts and then another pack for yourself.

This cozy throw is perfect for movie night and priced at $25 it won’t break the bank!

The perfect addition for any bar area, these Moscow Mule mugs are so fun!


Nordstrom ShoesI fell in love with booties last year and since these are priced at just $80, I’m definitely adding these basic booties to my closet in taupe.

I’ve had these slippers for years and they are still in great condition! Now that I work from home, I may or may not wear them all day long!

I love adding a pop of color to an outfit with sassy heels. I just snagged these in red and can’t wait to wear them with jeans and a black tunic!

If you don’t want a bright color, these leopard heels are a great “neutral” heel option to add some fun to a classic black dress or jeans.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to finally buy a pair of Nike FlyKnits as they are $40 off and available in lots of fun colors!

Perfectly priced at less than $75, these flats are great for just about any day of the week.


Nordstrom ClothingThe fun seams and detailing on this dress make it perfect for Fall especially when paired with the leopard heels!

I have this tunic in two colors and am definitely adding a bright color this year as it’s easily dressed up or down depending on how you style it.

This classic stripe long-sleeve t-shirt comes in lots of fun color combinations and is under $20, making it the perfect Fall staple.

My Victoria Secret bras have all seen better days and are over 4 years old. I am finally cleaning out my drawers and replacing them with this highly recommended bra.

This tunic is another fun option as the high-low design has a great drape to it and will work for weekday OR weekend fun. 

At this price, this Faux fur vests is a fun way to spice up any Fall or Winter look.

With over 2,000 positive reviews, how can I not want to add these to my wardrobe?

Bright and fun, these crops will be a bright, fun addition to my workout wardrobe.

This loose and relaxed sweater screams Fall and would be perfectly paired with skinny jeans, tall boots and a pumpkin beer.

When the weather gets crisp, this North Face vest is the perfect layer for workouts and errands, especially in the winter white.

I have this North Face quarter zip in two colors and practically lived in it last Fall and Winter.

Last but not least, one can never have enough classic black leggings and these have seaming detail and are heavy enough to wear in public without any see-through disasters.

Which pick is your favorite? Did you shop the sale? If so, what’d you buy?

Friday Favorites – Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale Edition

These days, there very few sale emails that I click through to shop further. In fact, I’ve removed myself from most retailer email lists so on an average week the only emails that I get are from Sephora or Nordstrom. I click through the Sephora emails to learn about the newest trends, popular beauty products and occasionally sales and discounts for VIB members.

Nordstrom is an entirely different story. When I get the email about their Anniversary Sale or Half – Yearly sale I click through immediately.This years pins and wish list items includes a mix of classic, investment pieces and fun, vibrant frocks.

If you’re looking for some bright, fun workout gear, then Nordstrom is your spot right now. I love the watermark print on these Zella sweat-wicking tights and the psychedelic print on these Nike Dri-Fit tights. It’s impossible not to smile when I’m wearing these vibrant, pink leggings, including during this week’s run!

These strappy, feminine sandals are the perfect match for wedding guest season and dress season alike. If you wear them with this vibrant, chiffon dress which is on sale for $27 you have a perfect Summer party outfit.

Each of the under $40 Lush maxi dresses screams Summer, but this one is my favorite. The forgiving nature of maxis makes them a perfect option during Summer heat while the cornflower blue shade is flattering for almost any skin tone.

This sleek, slim-fitting rain coat has become a staple in my wardrobe since moving to Europe. The figure, flattering shape means I can travel on rainy days without looking like a slob. While the bright yellow option is certainly fun, nothing is more flattering and versatile than the chic, basic black. 

I own this tunic in three different colors, each of which I love! This is the perfect, comfortable top for long-haul flights and Spring days. Last Summer I wore the white one with shorts for evenings by the lake. The white, navy and gray pavement are in my closet, but I just put the green dynasty in my shopping bag.

These gorgeous Michael Kors espadrille wedges are taller than I normally wear but OH SO COMFORTABLE AND FLATTERING!

This watch is a classic piece that is as much jewelry due to it’s vibrant gold tone as it is functional. Even after three years, I still wear my Michael Kors Runway watch daily!

Last but not least, in case you want to tell your loved one what you want for Christmas, the classic Burberry Quilted jacket is 30% off! I’ve had the navy one on my wish list for years! 

What is on your Nordstrom half-yearly wish list?
