Leather Knits and Booties
October 6, 2018
Crisp air, apple cider, pumpkin patches, falling leaves, and the glowing evening sun. Needless to say, I love this season, especially the weeks when summer transitions to fall. Throw on a jacket or knit sweater, a pair of leather or suede booties, and pair them perfectly with an end-of-summer dress.
As we achieved a huge milestone by handing in the book manuscript, I feel like I have the opportunity to relax a little, settle back into my routine, and actually enjoy the changing season! You all know how much I love Nordstrom. My online and in-store shopping experiences never disappoint!
I tend to shop both online or in-store. I love that Nordstrom has added yet another impeccable service: BOPUS. This “Buy Online Pick Up in Store” service is one-of-a-kind, allowing you to shop on your own terms! I’m sharing some of my favorite pieces this fall that will carry my wardrobe into the winter months ahead.
I have been looking for a leather jacket for a while now. I wanted something classic, not too bulky and can be dressed up or down. This moto leather jacket pairs perfectly with a tee and jeans or dresses up beautifully with booties and a dress. The one I bought is a perfect, soft leather that feels almost worn in. It is not bulky at all, which is my preference and gives it a more comfortable fit.
I’ve rounded up some other jacket choices below that we love. Some faux, some suede, something to suit everyone’s taste.
Booties. Where would be without them? These above-the-ankle boots from Mark Fisher are gorgeous. I was looking for something that was a little bit above the ankle, with a high, comfortable heel. And this colour is perfect. I know I will get many years of wear out of these ones. I’ve only worn them out a couple times and have received so many compliments on them! Below are some of our other favorites.
Turtlenecks and knit sweaters look so cute under a leather jacket and paired with a skirt or jeans. I like to stay in neutral colors like creams and greys as that’s what resonates with me. I even love a scalloped edge. Picking a few versatile sweaters that will last for a full season (or more) is a must for me! Especially where I live. We need them for more than half the year so let’s just say I get my wear out of them.
The dress I’m wearing by See By Chloe and it actually comes with a sleeveless cropped knit sweater. I love how this dress is transitional and it pairs well with a leather jacket.
My next purchase is a new pair of good-quality denim. Finding a great pair of jeans is a task. I have my eye on a pair of Mother denim. I absolutely love their look and fit. I’m still trying to get back to my pre-baby weight, so I haven’t invested in a new pair quite yet. I’m also all about getting something altered if it doesn’t fit you just quite right– especially in the length! Being a Nordstrom member provides me with perks like alterations, which are a must for taking the hem up on my jeans! I would highly recommend joining Nordstrom Rewards because you can you collect points that are redeemable for cash and receive access to some of their best services like alterations! Can’t wait until I can fit into my regular size and purchase a pair of denim tailored to my perfect length.
Looking forward to this wonderful month and enjoying the hopefully chilly but sun-filled days!
