Happy Friday, ladies. Our weather has turned unseasonably cold which suits me just fine so we’re all reaching for layers. I don’t live in a very cold climate and I know the delight would wear off fast if I did, but for now, I love that I’m finally getting to wear my new coat.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the Nordstrom house brands. Their quality just keeps getting better and better and the selections are vast. More of it is finding its way into my wardrobe this winter, especially sweaters. After my dryer mishap earlier this fall, I’ve had to replace much of my cashmere collection and the Nordstrom brand has come to my rescue, especially since they all got marked down. The colors are simply yummy and the quality is fabulous. You can check out all the Nordstrom Made brands here.

But I digress…today’s outfit features another wardrobe building block that comes in tons of colors and is incredibly versatile. This lightweight cardigan is by the Nordstrom brand. I love their line of quality classics that fit seamlessly into my wardrobe at an affordable price point.
A cardigan is the ultimate cozy layer and these everyday cardigans are perfect year-round. Because they’re lightweight and breathable, they layer over things without being too hot. I like how this simple cardigan ties my separates together into an elevated look. It comes in 5 colors, sizes XXS-16W. The description says it flutters and flows with every step, and it does. It runs a bit large so I sized it down to an XS and it’s perfect.
I don’t think of purple as a holiday color, but I’m declaring it so. I love how it pops against this black so I feel festive in it. It’s available in 5 colors sizes XS-16W. The website suggests if you’re between sizes, to size down but I sized up and am happy I did. It’s loose and slouchy but not sloppy or oversized. This sweater also comes in a v-neck version here and I did size down for that one because it’s a tunic shape.
Give this gal some pockets and she is a happy camper. I just love them! These soft velour pants come in teal or black sizes XXS-16W. Although I love teal, black seems perfect for the holidays and I think it looks richer.
I’m wearing an XS. These could be dressed down with sneakers or up to go to a party. They have a nice high rise and wide, flowy leg. Is velour the new velvet for pants? It is if you want a luxe look that’s easy care that doesn’t require dry-cleaning!
*A great tip to remember is the wider the leg, the softer the fabric so it flows and moves with every step.

I’ve been testing lots of new lipstick shades lately because many in my collection were beginning to make me look washed out. I always go back to this Rosewater because it’s the perfect cool rose for my complexion. It’s a natural, clean formula with amazing staying power and it’s also cruelty-free, so it ticks all the boxes for me.
Nordstrom is my favorite department store for so many reasons, not the least of which is their incredible customer service with free shipping and returns, always. Joining the Nordy club here is free, and allows you to earn points towards notes you can use to shop plus you get free basic alterations. They also offer BOPUS, ROTUS (reserve online, try on in-store), and curbside pickup.
How are you dressing for the holidays this year?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
