However, I never thought I was “with it” enough to pull off some of their creations.
But then I found THESE tees, and I became a big ol’ fan.
(You’ll see pics of me in the tees at the end of the post.)
So when Nordstrom reached out to see if I would talk about Free People, I knew I could of course gush about the tees (which was enough to get me excited about the post)!
But I also thought it was a good reason for me to get up my courage to try other pieces of theirs as well.
Now, FULL disclosure here.
I tried on a lot of things that made me look ridiculous. 😉
The Free People pieces are often a bit “boho chic”, and I am probably the opposite of “boho chic”, so there are some pieces that definitely don’t work on me (some are too long, others are too short, others are too lacy or see through, and some
of the arms are way too flowy). As I sit here writing this post, I’m sad that I didn’t take pics of me in those items, because we all could have had a good laugh.
However, I did find a handful of things that I absolutely LOVED! And that’s what I’m going to share with y’all today!
First off, this beach cocoon cowl neck pullover (I’m wearing the charcoal).
I love everything about this pullover.
IT. IS. AWESOME.
It’s loose and flowy (without being HUGE or tent-like), and I love the “heathered” look. The big cowl neck makes it interesting and unique, but it’s not overwhelming at all. I have no doubt that it’s going to be an item that I reach for again and again all fall and winter long.
It’s just so cozy (but still really cute)!
For size reference, I’m wearing an x-small/small.
It comes in this grey color that I’m wearing, a lavendar (that looks like a really light grey online), and a denim (that seems to be a dark blue).

In fact, you might remember this same tunic from last year!
Do you remember Candace? She’s the mama that inspired the Special Mama giveaways, and in 2014 we took the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale BY STORM.
Well, she got this tunic while we were shopping!
Apparently, this pullover was so popular that they brought it back this year (after it sold out last year). You should go HERE and read some of the reviews. Everybody loves it!
I mean, how cute is Candace!
I texted Candace on Monday to let her know that she was going to be on the blog today, and I wanted to know if she still loved her top!
She said she does LOVE it and it is so cute and comfy!
She even sent me this pic of her in it with leggings! DARLING! And my goodness I love those boys of hers.
Click HERE for the tunic. And she’s wearing her MUST HAVE leggings (of course!) and her Penny boots (ON SALE!) 🙂
Candace sized up to the medium/large so she could wear it with leggings.
Also, I haven’t washed mine yet (and I’ll probably dry clean it, because I dry clean a lot of my clothes), but Candace says she wishes she would have not dried hers all the way. Thanks for the tip Candace!
This next item took me by surprise. I thought it was going to be too boho for me, but I loved it!
Maybe I am a little boho. 😉
SWING DRESS (and it comes in 2 other color options)!
This was such a cool look with leggings (I think it looks more like a tunic top than a dress), and I thought the color was very pretty!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the dress.
swing dress/ MUST HAVE leggings in graphite / similar cognac boot / similar cross body bag options below / circle hoop earrings
And I find myself reaching for my cognac cross body a lot. Sadly, mine is sold out.
So, here are some options for you!
This next top surprised me as well.
It’s the tree swing high low top.
I saw this top on Jen Hatmaker on facebook one day, and I wanted to try it for myself!
(FYI, Jen has also been spotted wearing the ombre blardigan on several different occasions on her ig. I wonder if she knows it’s a “blardigan”?!?)
But I digress. Back to this top.
I’m wearing it here straight out of the package it shipped in (I hadn’t tossed it in the dryer or anything to pull the wrinkles out).
I wanted to love this top, because I totally LOVE the idea of it, but I think maybe I’m not tall enough for it (I’m almost 5’4″). Or I might have too much boob for it (sorry dad).
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
top / AG skinny ankle jeans / similar cognac boot / circle hoop earrings
And then I tried on this pretty little thing while at the mall.
Again, I think I have a little too much boob for it.
I’ve seen it on other bloggers (taller, thinner bloggers) and they don’t wear a cami under it and it’s GORGEOUS! It’s a really deep v, but it looks so pretty without anything underneath it if you can pull that look off. You can even dress it up with skinny jeans and heels.
Also, here I have it paired with boyfriend jeans (because that’s just what I had on)….but I think skinny jeans would look much better with it with some tall boots or booties for a more casual look than heels! When wearing a flowy top like this, I always try to wear fitted jeans
so not everything is baggy.
I didn’t love the top on me, but I’ve definitely loved it on others. Maybe it would be great on you?
I’m wearing an x-small here, but I needed a small (it was too tight in the chest).
v neck tunic / similar jeans / circle hoop earrings / shoreline converse
Again, please pay no attention to how this top is styled in the pic below. Imagine it with skinny jeans and tall boots or booties!

Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
Many of you purchased them when I talked about them last week, all of you seem to love them, and 1 of you even said they are the best jeans they’ve ever owned!
See y’all back here on Friday!
