Wear Now, Wear Later
Okay, I know it’s tough to think about sweaters right now. I get it. I totally do. It’s been like a bazillion degrees and one of the hottest summers on record so far! But, try to imagine for a moment that it’s November. You admire and appreciate the beautiful brightly colored leaves. There’s a crisp chill in the air and almost no humidity. You are getting dressed for the day and want something that will keep you warm, but not too warm, that is also stylish, cute and cozy.
Enter the Free People sweater below.
Nordstrom Sale Find!
My goal is always to make your life simpler. And, one of my most important messages is… buy basics first. Without your basics, your wardrobe won’t function. (If you haven’t subscribed to my newsletter to get those wardrobe basics checklists, you can do that here.)
You can stock up on some of your key fall basics NOW through the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. That’s actually pretty unique because no other sale enables you to buy pieces for the fall season before the season even starts!
One essential that I really love from the sale…? This sweater by Free People! I love the v-neck which is a universally flattering. The length is great too…not too long or short. The color is neutral and versatile. And, the fabric; it’s SO soft and wonderful, you’ll never want to take it off! Wear it off one shoulder for a dash of sexy.
Basic Sweater…With A Twist!
The name of this sweater alone made me want to “add to cart.” The Princess sweater? Yes, please! But seriously, this sweater is a GREAT purchase from the sale. It’s super fuzzy, soft, and cozy, it has a flattering v-neckline, it’s a little oversized but not too billowy, and it’s not too long! What more could you ask for!? I bought this sweater to bring to Spain because it’s a great wear now, wear later piece. I love the white but it also comes in black, lavender, and light blue. It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS. If you’re looking for more sweaters, make sure you check out this post with all of my favorites from the sale!
I paired the sweater with slim boyfriend jeans by AG. Baggy and more relaxed fit jeans are where we’re headed in the fashion world. So, these jeans are a great option if you want to dip your toe into the trend without going all in. They’re also a great length (I’m 5’4”). They run true to size, I’m wearing a 26. Find more of my favorite NSale jeans here.
On my feet, I’m wearing these super chunky Steve Madden boots. This thick lug sole trend is big right now. These were a little out of my comfort zone, but I ended up really liking them! They have a cool combat boot feel. They run true to size and I’m wearing a 7.5. You can find more of my favorite booties here.
I kept the jewelry pretty minimal with a crescent pendant and super lightweight hoops by Gorjana. If you want to see more of my jewelry favorites on sale, check out this post.
