New Fashion Finds at Nordstrom and Target

Hi friend!  And just like that we’re back to Friday!  I’m was so looking forward to the kids’ basketball games this weekend, but sickness put a dent our plans.  Gotta roll with the punches, even when it feels like a sucker punch to the gut.  I am looking forward to a date night with Brian and celebrating his lovely niece’s sweet 16 birthday!  What are y’all up to this weekend?

If you missed the fun stuff on the blog this week, you can catch up here:

NEW STYLES AT NORDSTROM AND TARGET

I tried something new with how I take my outfit photos and record the videos this time.  Instead of taking mirror selfies, I used a remote to take the photos and videos so that you could hopefully get a better idea of how the outfit looks and when you watch the videos on Stories, I’m talking directly to you as opposed to into my phone.  I hope this is a better experience for you.  Please let me know which you prefer in the comments!

For Size Reference: I’m a shorty (5’1) and petite, weighing about 110.  I typically wear size 0p/25 jeans, XS in tops and dresses.

I almost thought it was Spring when I tried on this top.  It’s a delightfully easy to wear blouse with puffed sleeves and a non body-conscious fit.  I think the volume of the top makes it perfect for skinny jeans or something slim on the bottom. The white is pretty opaque, yet, I kinda want the black one now too! I can see wearing it with dressy shorts and wedges in the summer.

The jeans are a high rise skinny pair from LOFT and they are on major sale!  They have just a bit of distressing and a raw edge hem.

This sweatshirt hoodie is SO CUTE with the contrasting lace sleeves.  I just wished I had sized up because it runs small. 40% off.

For a dressier style hoodie, this one by 1State is great!  It’s got a kangaroo pocket and shorter length (no need for a front tuck), and slightly billowy sleeves.  I like this plum color, but it also comes in tan and olive green.

Similarly, this pullover is the same material, but instead of a hoodie, it has a cowl neck. The criss cross front also mimics the look of a front tuck.

OMG, this velvet top is the softest!   It’s silky smooth on the inside and velvety soft of the outside- like you want to keep touching it!  The black is chic too!

Target has some really cute pieces right now.  This v-neck striped sweater is from there and under $30.  It comes in this cool colorway and also a warm version. Which one do you prefer?

I’m wearing this outfit with the Target booties that have already served me well.  They’re very comfortable with a lower heel, pointy toe, and perforated style.  They’re easy to slip on and off your feet and fit TTS.

This warm sweater is also from Target and I like the bauble detail throughout.  It’s on the shorter side, which means you can still do a front tuck or wear it untucked and it still gives you a longer leg line.

The ice blue color of this sweater is so pretty in person.  Also, the cable knit stitch is nicely done and gives a great texture.  For a more relaxed, casual look, you can cuff the sleeves.  It comes in several colors and is a great basic sweater to have in your wardrobe because it can be dressed up for work or worn casually with jeans.

I loved this leopard print blouse for work or, in my case, a date night!  The navy blue is an unexpected leopard print color that looks great with blue jeans.  The sleeves are sheer, but the bodice is fully lined and it has a peplum shape with a functional drawstring that’s very flattering.

This top also comes in a black or golden yellow floral style and both are equally stunning.

Gimme all the neutral cardigans! Especially when they’re this soft and pretty! I adore the stitch detail on the sleeves and how it’s hitting right at the hips.  It’s incredibly soft and looks great worn open or buttoned up.  I like it with a camisole, jeans and heels for a night out, but it would also look perfect with slacks or a skirt for the office, even over a dress.f

Isn’t this a fun take on a traditional plaid top?! Instead of a long shirttail hem, it’s shorter with a smocked waist/wrist and slightly puffed sleeves.  But, it does have true collar, v-neck and functional buttons.  The material is also almost a waffle knit, which I really liked.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS 

These jeans have been a go-to for years when I want to wear black.  They’re by Madewell and have a high waist and very comfortable fit.  I sized down in them, and recommend doing so since they tend to run a little big. They’re also long on me so I cuffed the hem.  They’re a great jet black and perfect for casual Friday at work, dressed up for a date night, or just a weekend outfit with sneakers.

Jeans Fit: I sized down 1 to a size 24

The sweater is from Target, but has the fit and quality of a department store brand.  It’s a thin knit, very soft with wide stripes and a fun bell sleeve at the wrist.

If you’re looking for a step up from your basic tee, this is a lovely option.  It’s still as comfortable as your regular t-shirt, but the v-neck, buttons and smock detail give it that extra boost to make it look more special.  So, you’ll look put together, but feel like you’re wearing your favorite old tee!  It comes in two more Spring friendly colors.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS

These Good America Jeans fit like a glove without any gaping in the waist.  They’re high rise and had me at “booty lift”!

What a sweet sweater for transitioning into Spring!  It’s warm like a regular sweater, but with short puffed sleeves and really cute light blue dots. This would be a sweater that is great for work or play.

Another great work or play sweater from Target is this neutral striped sweater with contrasting black at the chest and shoulders. It’s a boatneck style that looks so chic with your hair pulled back.

I like these long sleeve ribbed tops worn alone, as layering pieces and even to sleep or lounge in.   They’re a steal at just $10 and come in several colors.

For a fancier short sleeve sweater, this number is gorgeous with the metallic thread running throughout to give it a bit of shine.  I bought it to go with a skort below, but I also like it with jeans and a heel for a snappy casual date night.  If you like to wear skirts this top would be a good mix and match option.

Sunday, Monday, Thursday or Friday are all options on this sweater.  And they all come with their own unique color combo.  I personally like Mondays and the grey/yellow colors.  The sweater is cute, but not as soft as I hoped it would be.

I can see several ways to style this striped button up top.  You can tuck it in and make it a work shirt, half tuck or wear open for a relaxed look, layer it over a swimsuit as a coverup, pair it with shorts in the Summer, white jeans in the Spring and add a cardigan or vest in the Fall and Winter.  It’s a boyfriend style, so bit oversized and comes in so many fun color options.

NIGHT OUT OUTFITS

Dressing Room Finds, Sparkle Sweater, Skorts, Clear Heels

TopSkortClear Heels

Here’s the skort I was telling you about that I bought to go with this short sleeve sweater.  So, the bottoms pull on and look like a skirt from the front, but it’s actually shorts from behind.  I love the way these fit and the substantial material.  The front skirt part is pleated and it has pockets, simply zipping up in the back.

I’m CRAZY for this top!  It’s so festive and fun with the gingham pattern and sequins throughout to give it that party shine! It almost has a waxed look to it, but it’s those sequins giving it that vibe.  It has gorgeous puffed sleeves and a straight fit that looks great belted or tucked in.

TopZella Leggings

Of course I had to see what was new at Zella and this top caught my eye because of the gorgeous green color. It has a scoop neck, slightly hi/low hem and ribbed sleeves.  I’ve had the Zella live-in leggings forever and they are a wardrobe staple with a comfortable high waist and 7/8 length.  They’ve held up for years with many washes and machine dries.
