Only a few days are left of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I have shopped my little heart out this year! Ha! What can I say, I love a good deal!
As many of you know, so many items from the sale are either sold out or have super limited sizing left. That’s why I am pretty psyched to tell you guys about today’s look! It’s all based around this trench coat that’s not only is it in stock, but it’s in stock in every single size! Yay!
As you can see on Nordstrom’s website, the reviews for the jacket are really good! There’s only one that is negative and it’s from someone who is very petite and the jacket was just too oversized on her. And I get that. If you’re on the very petite side, even the ‘extra small petite’ might be too big for you. For example, I’m normally a medium and I sized down to a small in the jacket and it was perfect. So if you’re normally a small you might want to size down to the extra small, and if you’re normally an extra small, you’ll want to size down to the extra small petite. But the great thing about this jacket running a bit large is that some plus size women will be able to get it too! And I love it when I’m able to share products that women of many different sizes can wear!
And I know I usually post really pretty, professional photos on my blog but I want to try to start including iPhone pictures as well. Sometimes I think it’s easier for people to tell what a item will look like on them if I post a regular old iPhone pic. So I’ll try to do more of those moving forward! Let me know if you guys like the iPhone pics.
What I really love about this look is that it’s a really great way to layer clothes for Fall. Since it’s so hot here in LA and pretty much everywhere else in the country, when I wore this yesterday I planned on wearing a T-shirt most of the day. With jeans instead of shorts though, my post-pregnancy body does not look good in shorts right now. So I don’t care how hot it is, I’m opting for jeans over shorts! Ha! But in the mornings it’s still pretty cool in LA so I was able to wear my trench coat for a little bit while I went out to some work commitments with Riley yesterday morning.
To layer this look it’s as easy as a white T-shirt, a chambray shirt and this trench coat. I think it looks classic and put together even though it was super easy to throw on as I ran out the door. I think the key is just make sure you have a white T-shirt that you love as the base of your look. Especially since the point of layers is to be able to take them on and off as the weather changes. This morning it was cool enough for me to wear a light jacket, but by mid-morning it was way too hot and I still wanted to look cute and thankfully my white T-shirt and jeans are really flattering so I still felt put together even though I was literally only wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. I’ve written about this white tee so many times and I will continue to do so because I couldn’t be more obsessed with it. I literally have five of them in white. Plus a bunch of other colors as well. And like any white piece of clothing that you wear literally every other day, they get dingy so I’ll replace mine every once in a while. But at under $20, it’s easy to replace them. And then for a middle piece, any chambray button up will work.
Anyway, I hope you guys have had as much fun shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale as I have! It’s only going on for a few more days, so if there are any pieces you’ve had your eye on that are still available, make sure you snatch them up quickly! Let me know what you think of this look! And if you are considering getting this coat for yourself, let me know if you have any questions.
Huge thank you to Nordstrom for being my favorite store ever and sponsoring this post! It’s been so cool for me to have a store I love and post about regularly turn into a Ali Luvs partner! So grateful!
