I partnered with Nordstrom to share this casual fall outfit today. Even though this outfit is super simple and ridiculously comfortable, I still feel put together while wearing it. As I get older, I’ve put so much more emphasis on practical outfits that I feel like myself in.
This one checks all those boxes!
I’m just going to break down this outfit because there are so many elements I love… Starting with the red trench.
I bought a red trench coat this summer, before Ireland, and it’s a coat I cherish now. It 100% falls under the “investment” category, but I’m really happy with the purchase. The exact trench I got isn’t available anymore, but this one is pretty similar and here’s a more affordable option as well. Even though it’s not a neutral like a classic tan trench, I’ve found that I’m able to wear it quite often… and it adds the perfect pop of color no matter what.
One trend I thought I’d never buy into was distressed denim. Now that I purchased these jeans, though, I can’t believe I ever was opposed. I like that the trench coat and flirty blouse dress the denim up a bit too. Also, I’m obsessed that you can now buy J. Crew at Nordstrom!
And lastly, these shoes. I fell in love with them when I saw them online, but I didn’t want to get my hopes up. I was worried they’d be uncomfortable or that the pointed toe would be too pointy. Nope! They’re super soft and comfortable (NO BLISTERS, even on the first wear) and they fit like a dream. The flats are available in five colors too. I’m tempted.
As always, Nordstrom offers free shipping + returns, which I love because I can order multiple sizes worry free. And they also automatically price-match with other retailers to make sure you’re getting the best price possible. It’s the best!
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
