You know that quote everyone shares this time of year? The one that goes “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers?” Well, it may be cliche, but I resonate with those words in more ways than one. The weather is cooling off, the girls are settling into their school year, football is back…oh, and the shelves of my favorite retailers are filling up with cozy knits, warm colors, and fun fall patterns. Going from styling outfits for summer (where the goal is to look half cute while avoiding a heat stroke) to curating looks for fall has been a breath of fresh air – I love the way fall fashion incorporates a variety of textures, neutral colors, and layers to create a multifaceted, multidimensional look! Today I’m partnering with Nordstrom to show you a casual look for fall, full of favorites that I’ll be wearing all season long.
To me, there’s nothing better than starting a season with a versatile new pair of booties and your favorite seasonal denim. The cognac leather booties I chose for this outfit are comfortable, cute, and are the perfect accessory to add to any outfit. They also come in saddle suede and black (is it too much if I buy in every color?). And of course, I had to snag another pair of my favorite button front style jeans from Madewell! I love the raw hem on this pair, and the wash is just right.
The sweater I’m wearing is from the Something Navy line at Nordstrom, and comes in 5 great colors! It’s lightweight enough to wear now, and cozy enough to wear into the cooler days of fall. I chose this orangey brown color because I’m all about warming things up for fall, and I knew it would pair well with the cognac leather booties I picked up. I completed the outfit with my favorite Gucci crossbody, which I’ve worn through just about every season at this point. It was one of the first fancy bags I ever bought, and while it is definitely an investment, it pairs well with just about any outfit so it was 100% worth it to me!
I feel like now is a good time to warn you that you will be seeing a lot of these jeans, these booties, and this bag this season, probably paired with tops & sweaters in variations of this brown/camel/orange (because I just can’t get enough of that color). I’ve rounded up several of my favorites below!
Stocking up on items at the beginning of a new season can be a LOT, but Nordstrom makes it easy with their free two-day shipping and free returns. And if you are one of the lucky ones and live in a city where there’s a Nordstrom store, you can also use the Buy & Pick Up feature for same day order pickup. AND, as if Nordstrom hasn’t already made our lives as easy as possible, they’ve also added complimentary curbside pickup for Nordy Club members. If I were you, I’d take full advantage of these perks! Do it for me, won’t ya?
And there you have it! An easy fall outfit you can take from day to evening, grocery store to girls’ night, and probably a million other places, too.
