Oct 9, Menswear

Today’s Nordstrom inspired outfit is based on the theme of menswear.

I don’t own any menswear inspired pieces, so my black blazer will have to do. But wouldn’t you agree, it does add instant polish to my outfit!

A black cardigan could have worked, but the blazer adds a layer of sophistication that the cardigan lacks. Replacing the cotton t shirt with a cute striped silk top is also an improvement, and the cropped jeans & slip on driving shoes complete the look.

Jeans- Lucky

Blazer- Nordstrom

Top- Ann Taylor

Shoes- Vince (Nordstrom Rack)

July 27, Coffee Date

I had a coffee date this morning with a friend who I haven’t seen all summer. It was great to catch up with her and a good reminder that I often get so busy that I forget (or don’t take the time) to nurture friendships. Gotta get better about that!

It’s a lot cooler here today, so I wore jeans and a cotton top, but my dark jeans and plain grey t shirt on the left look frumpy. The cropped and lightly distressed jeans on the right are an improvement. The sleeveless, v neck grey t shirt is more stylish than an oversize t shirt from my husband’s closet! The silver bracelets and cute sandals add some interest to the simple look.

Another outfit idea with this top is to pair it with black joggers- see below.

This is a super casual and comfy outfit that I love! If it’s chilly I can throw on a denim jacket!

T shirt- Madewell
