Fall Clothing Wishlist

Like it or not, it’s almost fall. August is nearing the tail end of the heat and humidity and the crisp fall air in approaching at the end of September. With that being said, I thought I’d get a jump start on sharing some cute fall clothing pieces that I have my eyes on.

A big trend I’m into for fall is corduroy. I got a little taste of it late spring this year and I’m feeling it again for the upcoming fall season. I think it’s the best texture for the fall, honestly. It’s cozy, keeps you warm and it looks great in all the beautiful fall colors. Below are a few of the corduroy pieces I’ve got sitting in my shopping cart.

American Eagle: Corduroy Mom Jean

Of course, I’m also looking forward to throwing on my coziest sweaters. I’ve mentioned before that I’m on the hunt for cardigans that are short enough to be worn as a top but still comfy and slouchy and it looks like Nordstrom has exactly what I’m looking for. Here’s a few cute sweaters that I’ve got my eye on!

Nordstrom: Halogen Ribbed V-Neck Cardigan (I shared this one during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and it’s still available!)

Now that I’ve just started a new job, I’m also on the hunt for some pretty blouses to wear to work too. I like to have tops that are versatile, that I can wear to work during the week with trousers and also on the weekend with jeans for a night out. I don’t like to dress TOO sexy, so usually pretty printed or ruffled blouses are what work best for me for both occasions. Below I’m linking a few that I think would be perfect for both work and a night out!

Nordstrom: Astr The Label Stevie Peplum Top (this one is sold out in my size but wanted to share anyway cause it’s so dang cute and I’m LOVING this brand!)

Something else I’m looking forward to is DENIM. All the denim. I LOVE DENIM. It’s my favorite clothing piece to wear, although not always appropriate. I’m still obsessed with a looser, mom style jean but I also love really big baggy boyfriend jeans (unclear if I can pull them off so stay tuned). And of course, can’t forget the denim jackets. A denim jacket is the perfect fall layer to go over a sweater when it’s just starting to get chilly out!

Nordstrom: Madewell The Momjean Ripped High Waist Stretch Jeans (LOVE the color of these and the minimal distressing, and can’t complain about the price tag at 25% off!)

Let me know in the comments below what you’re looking forward to this fall!

What’s In My Cart: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Every blogger, fashionista, and instagrammer’s favorite time of year is finally upon us: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The sale is available for Nordstrom Cardholders to shop since July 12th and is open to everyone else starting July 19th. This annual sale gets you NEW arrivals at MARKED DOWN prices! It’s their best sale of the year and I thought I’d share a few items I have my eyes on for the upcoming fall season (too soon, I know). Everything is linked below for you to shop also but hurry because these items sell out SO QUICK!

Jackets/Coats

A few staples I’ve been looking at for the upcoming fall season is some great blazers, the perfect suede moto jacket, and a few tailored topper coats to wear for nicer occasions. Linked below are a few items I’ve got my eye on!

BlankNYC Next Level Suede Moto Jacket: This little beauty got away from me last year during this sale, so it’s definitely going in my cart this year.
Sam Edelman Rib Tweed Car Coat: This coat is just stunning and I’m obsessed with everything brown this coming season. Plus Sam Edelman is always excellent quality.

Sweaters

I’m big on sweaters as you all know so of course I have a lot of cute picks. As I mentioned before, brown is my new favorite color for the fall so I’m looking for all the coziest brown sweaters this year. I’m also really big on button up cardigans and comfy pullovers, so that’s definitely what most of my picks will be for the upcoming season. I have a few linked below for you!

Something Navy Flecked Crewneck Sweater: See what I said about the browns? SO cute and you all know Something Navy is one of my most favorite brands so I’m really excited they are participating in this sale! Plus this comes in a TON of colors!
Halogen Ribbed V-Neck Cardigan: I’m really loving cardigans that can be worn on their own as tops or opened up and worn over tanks or camis like this one! Plus the pink color is SO cute, but it comes in tons of other colors also.
Something Navy Cozy V-Neck Cardigan: What else do I really need to say here? This one comes in a few other colors also, I just really love brown!

Dresses

For dresses this coming season, I’m definitely looking for versatile dresses that I can wear to work and also transition day to night if I need to. I know that I’ll have a lot of opportunities to go from work to events in the evening where I need to look put together but still comfortable enough to run around all day long. I also have formal occasion dresses in mind because a lot of people ask me about where to get wedding guest dresses, so I’m linking a few of my picks here for you.

ASTR The Label Lace Midi Dress: This pretty little thing would be perfect for a summer wedding and it comes in TONS of colors, so it can fit everyone’s style. Plus it’s about 30% off, which makes it a major steal.
Eliza J Geo Print Belted Shirtdress: This dress is a perfect example of a work appropriate day to night outfit. The print is subdued, but still eye catching and the silhouette is flattering for every body type.

Jeans

The fall is always a good time to buy jeans so I love to add a few new styles during this time. So far, looser jeans are very popular and I’m all for it. I also love a classic dark wash jean for when you need to look more put together. I’m linking some of my favorite styles below for you.

Topshop Ripped High Waist Dad Jeans: This year, Dad Jeans are the new thing and I am so into it. The loose rugged fit is a good balance with a cute sandal and a feminine top. It’s very construction worker chic, right?
Good American Good Legs High Waist Skinny Jeans: These are the most perfect wash of denim ever. They are the kind of classic jean that every girl should have in her wardrobe because they are great for your casual Fridays, date night, or just running errands on the weekend.

Shoes

Now I’m not desperately in need of new shoes, so I didn’t go scouring Nordstrom’s site for anything in particular, but I have been thinking of purchasing a new pair of black ankle boots. Those are always a staple for your wardrobe! Here’s the shoes I’ve got sitting in my cart right now, linked below.

Dolce Vita Coltyn Bootie: These are so cute and I love the croc print on them. They are just a classic ankle boot with a small heel, so they will be comfortable to wear all day long. And of course, Dolce Vita is widely trusted brand, so they’ll be sure to last you a while.
Charles by Charles David Maxx Pointy Toe Pump: This sale is a great time to stock up on classic styles like these pointed toe pumps. I have these in a few colors and I absolutely love them and find them comfortable to wear all day long. I’m definitely looking to purchase some more classic versions since they are about 30% off! These run a little small so I would size up half a size!
Charles by Charles David Burbank Bootie: These cute mid-calf booties are right up my alley and are high up on my list of things to purchase. The olive suede is very stylish yet the color is subtle enough that it can really go with anything. Plus this style is very flattering to wear with skirts and dresses.

That’s all I’ve got for you guys. This sale is absolutely insane and remember that sizes go very quickly and there’s little chance of restocking! If you want something, you have to grab it ASAP! I hope you enjoyed this and let me know what you guys are excited about for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! xx
