Hey ladies! It has been such a busy month for me. I felt like I was constantly on-the-go with Fashion Week, and now, it’s already October! I’m so excited for this fall season and have stayed busy curating the perfect cozy wardrobe. Lately, you guys have been asking for more affordable picks and one of my first recommendations is to check out the trend department at Nordstrom (here). It’s freshly stocked with chunky knits, suede and leather pieces, and all the best boots you need this fall. I’ve been doing most of my shopping here, and they have so many new goodies that have caught my eye! I wanted to share this cozy, casual chic monochrome look that you can recreate even if you’re on a budget!
A suede mini skirt and knee-high boot combo is the perfect way to ease into the new season. Rather than flowy skirts made from linen and cotton that scream summer, choose heavier materials like leather, corduroy, or suede to really cozy up the vibe! Blank NYC makes the best suede pieces at amazing prices and I’m obsessed with this mini right right now.
A girl can never have too many sweaters and there are tons of styles that pair well with all your boots. Currently, I am all about the simple sweater that’s upgraded with details, such as balloon sleeves, to give it a little more style. This piece also happens to be the easiest way to make mini skirt and knee high boots look grown up and sophisticated. I love how it balances out the sleek combo. Playing with monochrome tonal color palettes also ups the chic factor, especially with neutrals like gray - it makes an outfit seem much more expensive.
Knee high boots are everywhere this season and I’m here for it. I love their tall silhouette, which lengthens and slims the legs naturally. They also provide some leg coverage, which means extra warmth for when it is chilly outside. Whether you like heeled boots, leather, suede or animal print, Nordstrom has you covered on it all. This pair by Sam Edelman has been a favorite - the stiletto heel and pointed toe give it such a sophisticated vibe. (Also love this one and this one!)
