So if you’ve been around here long enough, you know that Nordstrom is my #1 retailer that I pretty much go to for ALL THE THINGS. Even during this crazy time that we are all going through, I’ve been ordering things off of Nordstrom to make the time I’m spending at home more cozy and comfortable for me. First off, I ordered this bra (no need for underwire right now and the reviews are fantastic!) and another one of my favorite fringe throw blankets. Spoiler Alert: I’ve got a post coming up next week with some of the new cozies I’ve ordered, and at the end of today’s post you’ll get a quick round up of some of the pieces I found while browsing online.
But before we get to the collage, I’ve got an outfit that is made up of pieces that are perfect for now (while at home) and for later (once life returns back to normal). The outfit features several Nordstrom house brands , and I have to say, their house bands have absolutely become some of my favorite brands to shop. They are brands that I often search first on the site, and I’m always quite pleased with the quality and affordability. Combine that with Nordtrom’s FREE SHIPPING (with no minimum) and their top notch customer service (it’s THE BEST), and they have a customer for life in me.
So today I’m featuring 3 of my new favorite house brand purchases. The sunglasses, the earrings, and the sweater are all Nordstrom house brands.
The sunglasses are from BP and ONLY $25! These large tortoise shell frames spoke to me, but BP always has a super selection of on trend and affordable sunglasses.
BP also has lots of cozy items that are all very well priced. #givemeallthecozyrightnow
The teardrop earrings are from Halogen, another Nordstrom house brand. They are gold hammered metal and so super light that you won’t even know you have them on! Halogen actually has a large selection of totally classic and affordable jewelry.
This cotton slub sweater is on repeat over here because we keep it cool in the house, and most of the time I like to have on something with sleeves. It comes in several colorways, but I was immediately drawn to the color combo of these stripes. And I love that it’s got a lot of texture to it (it has a bit of a handmade feel), but it’s still soft.
I’m totally able to do a 1/2 tuck with it, and totally will, but I know that there are lots of you that prefer sweaters that look great without a 1/2 tuck. And this one does! I’m wearing the small and it’s a relaxed fit.
Caslon actually has a lots of pieces that are great for days spent at home. Pieces that are still really cute, but where comfort is key! Like this romper (click HERE to see it on me).
And how do you like my new high waist raw hem skinny jeans?
BECAUSE I LOVE THEM.
I’ve found that actually getting dressed at home helps me feel normal, but I of course want to still be comfy. Jeans like this are the answer for me. When talking about comfort, I basically think that most Wit and Wisdom jeans are just a step away from pajamas. #andilovemesomepajamajeans And to be clear, I’m not getting dressed every day. There are several days that I’ve changed from my daytime pajamas to my nighttime pajamas. I hope that’s not just me. Haha!
These jeans are definitely a bit higher waisted than most of my jeans, but they aren’t too high at all. And they have the Ab-Solution technology that we all love. Since they are Wit and Wisdom, they obviously have a good amount of stretch in them too.
For size reference, I would recommend sizing down, I’m in a 2 Petite (I’m almost 5’4″).
The tote is one you’ve seen here time and time again. There’s not much to it, but it’s a great everyday bag that can hold a lot. It’s big enough to throw a laptop in, and it’s also great for travel. #oneday I always find myself zhushing it up a bit by tying a coordinating bandana around one of the straps. There are lots of great options to choose from right now!
And y’all, the leopard sneakers are fabulous. They are on trend, true to size, and they were comfy right out of the box for me.
I love the entire outfit.
The sweater and the jeans are definitely comfy enough for a day spent at home, but when styled, they will be great for going out too! Can you even imagine when we all get to leave our houses again?
And as mentioned at the top of the post, I’ve also got a great COZY collage for y’all today! I’ve been getting so many requests for stay at home cozy clothes and items, so I decided to throw together a collection of things that have caught my eye. Many of the items featured are under $50, and they would all help to make your long days at home a little more enjoyable.
1. pullover hoodie / 2. sleep shirt / 3. scrunchies / 4. sleep shirt and joggers / 5. short pajamas / 6. cozy hoodie / 7. candle / 8. throw / 9. frayed edge quilt / 10. cozy shorts / 11. open front cardigan / 12. cozy top and cozy joggers
That’s it for today, everybody!
I hope you enjoyed a bit of mindless fashion inspiration and normalcy in today’s post.
Please know that I’m continually praying for all of you. Especially for those of you that are already sick, those with compromised immune systems, those that live alone, and those of you that are healthcare workers (or families of healthcare workers). I’m also praying for others that are continuing to do their jobs (like grocery store workers and restaurant owners that are staying open for TO GO orders) while still coming into contact with the general public. Prayers are also being lifted up for teachers as they learn to teach our children in a new way. And I know prayers are also needed for infinite patience for parents at home with kids right now. So many of you are trying your best to juggle parenting duties with your work schedules, and that’s not an easy task.
Anxiety is so easy to succumb to right now with worries over health and finances, so managing that anxiety is also at the top of my prayer list for everybody.
And finally, I’m prayerful and hopeful that during this time that we are being mindful of soaking up extra family time and giving extra love when possible. I continue to hear heartwarming stories of people helping people, and I’m so inspired by these stories. There are so many great humans that are going above and beyond for each other. If you yourself have done something or if you’ve heard a story of hope or how to help, please leave a comment! I’m thinking of compiling a list that we can all refer to!
Lots of love to all of you. xoxo
