I finally had the chance to get to Nordstrom and it goes to show that no matter how much planning one does, the outcome isn't always what you expect. I did not purchase a single item on my must-have list and found all new things! Part of this was because I waited so long and many of the things I had in mind had sold out in the store I went to, but I also found things I liked way more in person than I did online.
Dreamers by Debut Seemed V-Neck Pullover: (shown in Olive but I bought it in Rust at my store) $28.90 - This is SOO much cuter on. In fact, I hate it online! It looks much better on and paired with ripped-jeans or leggings and I have been wearing it off the shoulder. It is super soft and comfy.
Halogen "Owen" Pointy-Toe Ghillie Flat: in Bordeaux Suede $59.90 - These I was torn on when I found them online, but they are perfect for Fall and were comfortable to walk in. They run a tiny bit large (I usually go .5 or a whole size up in flats, but these we're my standard size). They go great with a midi-skirt or skinny jeans, dressed up or down.
Caslon Relaxed Slub Knit U-Neck Tee: in Grey-White Julie Stripe and also in Beige Rainy Day $17.90 - I love Nordstrom's selection of wardrobe staples. These T-shirts are soft and a flowy relaxed fit so perfect for layering and running errands. They weren't on my list but were too good to pass up.
BP. Hooded Longline Cardigan: in Grey Medium Heather $44.90 - This was similar to the dreamers sweater where it does nothing for me online, but once I found it in store, I completely changed my mind. It is the softest, coziest sweater! Long length for chilly fall days and would layer nicely over the Caslon striped tee above! It comes in a hooded and regular version. Trust me on this one!
Leith Dolman Dress: in Olive Sarma $38.90 - Originally, I had a different olive dress in mind, which I never saw in store so I tried this one as a replacement and ended up liking it much better. The other was more summery, so I like that this has sleeves and is longer on me (perks of being short?). It's a stretchy material and seemed to run a little big.
adidas Originals Logo Leggings: in black $25.90 - No story behind these; I have wanted them for months and never saw them when I scoured the website the first 25 times!
Tory Burch "Ashlynn" Riding Boots: in Almond Leather $299.90 - I am sad to say I haven't purchased these yet because they are sold out in my size and I am praying they return. These are a steal of a deal!
