I don’t know what the weather is doing in your neck of the woods, but around the Midwest, our days are filled with crisp mornings and sun-filled afternoons. We’ve struck Fall gold, friends. These types of Fall days call for one thing: layers. And I’m not talking about seven layer dip [although wow, now that I’ve written those words I can’t think of anything I want more]. I’m talking about jackets, vests, hats, and more! All your closet besties for those days where the temps do a 30 degree swing in a matter of a few hours. And I’m turning to Nordstrom for this year’s refresh.
Nordstrom has been a long-time favorite for stocking up on essentials, and layering options for Fall is no different! I especially love the Nordstrom Made brands, like Treasure & Bond, Leith, Zella, BP. and more.
With Nordstrom’s free shipping and free returns, shopping from home is a breeze! And if you are lucky enough to have a Nordstrom nearby, take advantage of their buy online pickup in store feature, or even curbside pickup [not getting out of the car? Yes, please!]! Plus, Nordy Club members can earn rewards such as Nordstrom notes to use for future shopping trips, free basic alterations, early access to shopping events, and more! If you’re not already a member, signing up is easy and can be done here!
Now grab a warm mug of spiced caramel apple cider, put on your favorite blue-light blockers, and take a peek at a few of the layering pieces I’m loving for Fall!
Brooke Double Breasted Long Coat • Topshop [TTS, wearing in a 6 -fits like US 2/4] // Dolman Sleeve V-Neck Sweater • Leith [TTS, wearing size small] // Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans • KUT from the Kloth [TTS] // Nadalie Pointed Toe Bootie • Steve Madden [order up .5]
The longer the better – that’s my coat style! This classic double breasted coat is an easy option that goes with any outfit. Something simple like this sweater and jean combo, or something more dressy if you’ve got events on the horizon!
Longline Cardigan • Treasure & Bond [size down, wearing in XS] // Scoop Neck Woven Shell • Halogen [TTS, wearing size small] // Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans • KUT from the Kloth [TTS] // Hacked Classic Layered Coin Necklace • Halogen //Nadalie Pointed Toe Bootie • Steve Madden [order up .5]
If you’d ask me how many cardigans is too many cardigans, I’d definitely tell you “the limit does not exist.” That’s how I feel in the Fall, at least! They’re the perfect layer whether you’re working from home, working from the office, or working your way over to your nearest Nordstrom. So many styles to choose from, but I love the fit and length of this one, and this tank top is perfect for layering!
Utility Vest • Caslon [TTS, wearing size small] // Long Sleeve Thermal Top • Treasure & Bond [TTS, wearing size small] // Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans • KUT from the Kloth [TTS] // Brixton ‘Wesley’ Wool Fedora • Brixton // Reversible Faux Leather Tote & Wristlet • Street Level // Oshay Pointed Toe Bootie • Marc Fisher [TTS]
Last, and most certainly not least, the ultimate Fall layer, the utility vest! This style has been a closet staple year after year for good reason. I love being able to throw it on over a top like this sweater to completely transform the look of your outfit and adding just a bit of warmth!
