Casual Cool Weekends with Nordstrom

Casual Cool Weekends with Nordstrom

My visit to Canada last week gave me a delicious taste of fall weather. The air was cool and crisp which meant sweaters, booties and cozy clothes. It’s my favorite type of weather so I’m now gearing up for when it hits here in Northern California.

I am excited to partner with Nordstrom because they’re my favorite store. Their selection is extensive and their customer service is unparalleled. They’re a one-stop destination for every occasion in a woman’s life. Got a wedding to attend? They have you covered. Planning a vacation? You’ll find everything you need at Nordstrom. all over rib sweater by Vince Camuto

This slouchy sweater is the perfect weight for early fall because it’s cotton! The allover rib gives body to its oversized shape and its slightly billowing sleeves add a modern touch. It’s available in petite, but this regular was the perfect length for me.

I paired it with these Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution jeans. They have inner power-mesh panels to mold and hold, including a waistband with interior-control and booty-lift construction. I usually choose regular length pants and hem them because I prefer a very high rise. I didn’t have to with these because the rise is a full 9″ on the petite version.Jennifer Connolly of A Well Styled Life wearing Munro Bradley Bootie from Nordstrom

I’ll be traveling back to Canada soon so I chose these water-resistant boots by Munro. It has a cushioned insole and a side zip so once I adjust the laces, they are easy on, easy off. Munro’s are a personal favorite because they are available from 4A through EE!

For warmer fall days I opted for sneakers and flannel.

I’m a huge fan of the classic fit and buttery soft fabric of Rails shirts. I couldn’t resist this one which has something extra. This pink plaid is called Love, and it’s an exclusive. For each exclusive Hunter shirt, Rails has donated $35 to Susan G. Komen® to help in the fight against breast cancer.

Sometimes you just need a sneaker and these Ecco’s are a perfect choice. They have a monochromatic cap toe which gives a low profile look to their classic shape. If black isn’t your thing they are available in 9 colors including white, which I wore all summer.

Rather than a belt, I opted for this faux leather belt-bag which makes hands free shopping or airport travel a snap. It’s large enough to carry car keys, passport, and a small wallet.

Nordstrom has recently introduced some new ways to shop that make it easier than ever before!


The BOPUS feature is for those in a hurry. If you need something right away, you simply choose your closest store, buy online, then pick up in store. They even offer curbside pickup so you don’t have to get out of your car. If you’re unsure of fit you can use ROTUS. To unlock this feature, download Nordstrom’s new IOS app, shop, reserve your items, then try on in the store.

Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns, free alterations plus personal stylists to help you put your looks together. Their new rewards program has launched called the Nordy Club with fashion access, exclusive services, and amazing experiences—plus points toward Nordstrom Notes.

Are you ready for cozy weekends?

    I just discovered your blog! It’s fantastic! Nordstrom is also my favorite store and Munro my favorite shoes. I have your boots in the brown color. It’s amazing how light weight they are and so comfortable!
