Happy Friday!!!! I cannot believe Thanksgiving is almost here… like where did November go?! This happens every single year – the holidays fly by, and before you know it, it’s Christmas! It seems like everyone I know has already started their Christmas shopping, and I have yet to even start AHHH! I’m on a mission this weekend and next week to get at least halfway through my list ;)
Best Winter Coats
If you are looking for no-fail, quality, unique gifts – be sure to check out the Nordstrom Made section. It’s FULL of exclusive brands you won’t find anywhere else. This coat is from my friend Rachel Parcell’s collection with Nordstrom and let me tell you, it is so beautifully made. It’s made of a soft faux shearling material that you would never know was faux because it feels so luxurious and plush. It runs true to size, although if you are on the shorter side/petite I would size down.
I’m actually thinking of getting this coat for my sister for Christmas because she’s been looking for a pretty winter white/cream jacket for over a year now!!! What I love about this coat is that you can dress it up or down – I can easily wear it with a black velvet jumpsuit, sparkly dress for date night, or jeans and a cozy sweater like I did here for running errands and weekend outings. Also love this lighter version if you live in warmer temps!
I am obsessed with all of the sweaters from Chelsea28 which are also exclusive to Nordstrom. They’re all SO reasonably priced, come in the best colors, and ideal to buy for yourself or loved ones. Who doesn’t need another classic sweater for winter?! In addition to the sweater I’m wearing, I also ordered this DREAMY cashmere cream sweater, and this turtleneck.
Stretchy Skinny Jeans
These faded black wash jeans are super stretchy and come with this chic gold button. Stretchy denim is honestly key for me at this point. I cannot bother with tight, stiff jeans anymore!!! I like to be able to move and eat in ’em you know? FYI I found these jeans to run a size big, so I would size down because they do have a lot of stretch in them.
Fun Holiday Outfits
If you’re looking for fun holiday outfit ideas – I just bought these red pants from the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection and can’t recommend them enough! They’re such a vibrant shade and look great with a red sweater and camel coat draped over the shoulders, or even just a cream silky blouse. I also love this velvet cami and this sequin pencil skirt.
And for gift ideas – I love this faux croc bag (looks so much more expensive than it is), this chic black clutch, this wallet on a chain, these leather touch screen gloves, this marble + wood cutting board (this always sells out every year so get it before it does!), this cozy blanket, and this pretty wine stopper.
