So I did what every good little blogger would do.
I ordered several sweaters.
I ordered several, tried on even more at the store, and I wound up keeping 2.
2 black sweaters.
Although they both come in a multitude of colors, I gravitated towards the black in both.
There’s just something about a great black sweater.
You’ve already seen one of the two when I styled it with my camo pants on Monday’s post. I just thought it was a great basic AND CLASSIC sweater that I would wear for years to come.
This next one I ordered on a whim.
And OHHHHHH EMMMMMMMMMMM GEEEEEEEEEEE.
I adore it.
It’s soft…it’s flattering….it comes in lots of colors…..it can be dressed up or down…..and there is a bit of a surprise with it…..I’ll get to that in a minute!

The sweater reminds me a lot of the grey waterfall cardigan I got last year (that everybody loved!), so I knew I would get lots of use out of it. I threw that cardigan on all the time last year, so now I’m happy to have a similar one in black. It drapes nicely and is just easy to wear.
But look at this…..
For a different look, you can also tie it up in the front like this! So fun!

And now I’m going to blow your mind.
The ends of the waterfall cardigan have two tiny little buttons on them, and the sweater has a couple of tiny button holes.
Wrap it around….Button up the ends……….
You’ve got a DARLING WRAP SWEATER!!!!!
Even though I love the waterfall cardi, I think this is going to be my favorite way to wear it!

Below I have it shown with my Vigoss Chelsea boot cut jeans (vs. the cuffed jeans above).
(SIDENOTE: I fall more in love with these boot cut jeans every single time I wear them! They elongate my legs and slim out my hips!)

Before I took the sweater off, I thought it would be fun to show it with my white skinny jeans and cognac boots. I know many of you are still scared to wear white after Labor Day, but you shouldn’t be! When you pair them with black and brown, it totally “winterizes” them and makes them appropriate for fall and winter!

Here’s the other sweater I mentioned earlier.
I’ve never owned a cashmere sweater before, but now I see what all of the fuss is about.
It’s so soft, and this particular sweater is very lightweight.
It comes in lots of colors (and it also comes in regular and petite)!

with skinny jeans and tall brown boots
with cuffed jeans and leopard flats
with white jeans and grey booties
with grey jeans and either black or brown boots
with a camel colored pencil skirt or dress pants
with colored jeans
The results are truly endless.
Click HERE to see my black sweater Pinterest board I created for inspiration.
Here are several black sweaters to choose from because every closet needs at least 1.
Even if the sweater shown isn’t black, click on the sweater you are interested in and it will take you to a black sweater! And hey, if you aren’t interested in a black sweater, you won’t believe the color options for each of them!
And while we are talking about cozy things, I have a couple more items to show you that I tried on last time I was at Nordstrom
I was wearing a small. It’s very soft and I think it would be great with leggings as well!
Click HERE for this color block sweatshirt.
I’ll be the first to say it isn’t the cutest thing I’ve ever had on.
BUT OH MY WORD it’s one of the Top 3 coziest things I’ve ever cuddled up with.
That short list includes the blardigan and a bunny rabbit. And now THIS. 😉
It’s by the maker of THIS asymmetrical wrap cardigan (comes in plus size as well) that soooooo many people adore and went crazy over last year (and comes in TONS of different colors and patterns and is NOW ON SALE!)
Well, this sweatshirt feels the same inside as that cardigan.
For size reference, I was wearing a small.
That’s it for today girls!
I hope everybody has a great weekend with their friends and family.
We actually have a whole lot of nothing planned, and I’m SUPER excited about it.
And since it’s raining all weekend, I’m thinking taco soup is in my future. And that makes me happy.
Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
I have a public service announcement.
I know many of you ordered THIS tunic tee.
I’ve received 3 e-mails now from readers who have already washed theirs, and here’s the announcement….
DON’T WASH IT!
Apparently it shrinks like CRAZY.
One reader even said it shrunk in the wash (before it had even been put in the dryer).
So, if you have it already, it sounds like it’s going to be dry clean only.
And if you don’t like getting things dry cleaned, you should probably pass on this tee.
