Hey, everyone! We got back from LA last night and have to say that it was a very relaxing trip. I am so glad to be home and not traveling for a while, though! I am tired of packing my suitcase and leaving my closet looking like a tornado went through it. Traveling is great, but I am such a homebody and being at home is the best! Today I wanted to show you my favorite fall piece from Nordstrom. I am obsessed with this green velvet blazer from Alice and Olivia. I bought a dark forest green velvet blazer last year, but when I saw this blazer, I had to get it (also has matching trousers). I absolutely love the tuxedo style of it. The velvet is super soft, and the color is better in person! It’s just a beautiful jacket that I can wear now through the winter. I bought it to wear on my trip to New York a few weeks back. I was planning on wearing it to dinner after shooting these photos, but the sensor was left on it, and I didn’t even notice. Has that ever happened to any of you?
While shopping through Nordstrom and looking for a blouse to go under the jacket, I came across this zebra top from Topshop. It’s a little on the sheer side, but I wore a black bra underneath and think it looks super cool. Even though Topshop has a little younger feel, I always look there, because I can usually find something that works and won’t break the bank. This top is $39 and is perfect to wear under jackets and blazers. The handbag I am carrying is also from Topshop and looks a lot more expensive than $55 (comes in gold too). I bought this gorgeous top to wear with the jacket as well.
I have been wearing skinny jeans for so many years now and wanted something a little different for this jacket. At first, I was thinking black jeans, but then I found these and love the cut. These are a bit vintage-inspired in feel, but they are made with ultrasoft b(air) denim, that will hug your curves while retaining their shape wear after wear. Woohoo!!! They also make your legs look longer!
Shopping for the New York trip was easy peasy with Nordstrom. They had so many fun pieces to choose from and made getting ready very easy. I bought this sweater in the pretty pumpkin color (which I bought last year in gray) and these short rainboots to bring along with me because I knew it would be raining the majority of the trip. Of course, I had to have some new pajamas to take with me, since I would be sharing a room. They are so soft and cozy!!! I am a makeup whore, so I was so excited to take this new palette from Charlotte Tilbury with me!
I love traveling, but do not enjoy the laundry it brings back or the event of unpacking. That is on the schedule today as well as shopping for a shoot tomorrow. I do have a fun night planned, though! I’m running to an event then heading to dinner with my sweet blogger friends to celebrate three birthdays! I haven’t seen my girls in a few weeks and am missing them, so I am excited about tonight. I hope you all have wonderful Wednesday and thank you for reading this post! xx
