Buying my Wardrobe Basics // Win a Shopping Spree to Nordstrom


Buying my Wardrobe Basics //

Good Morning!

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We were in Colorado, enjoying the cool air and the mountains for the holiday and I’m a little sad to be back to reality. Before I left, I went shopping with my friend Ali from A Dash of Details. I asked her to join me at the mall to help me shop because, you may not know this, but I get MAJOR shopping anxiety. I hate looking around a busy store and trying things on. I need someone to navigate me through the store and help me pick things out… This is NO JOKE! So, thanks to Ali, I was well-dressed for my trip! Thanks, friend!

One of the things we talked about was our love for stores like H&M and Forever21. We talked about how these stores are so great to go into and get items that fit a current trend tha may not last forever. You can find pretty much any design that fits the NOW, which is great when it falls out of style quickly… You didn’t spend too much money on it. We started talking about buying wardrobe basics, though. I told her that when I need basics, I like to invest in something that is quality that I can live in for a year or so. The wearability of a t-shirt and a pair of jeans is huge to me. I will literally live in it! When it comes to buying my wardrobe basics, I tend to head to Nordstrom. They carry all the designers I love and they have an awesome online shop that’s super easy to navigate! Also, the biggest sale of the year is about to go down, so I’m just getting prepared to go HAM on some basics!

I don’t mind investing in a nicer T-shirt when buying my wardrobe basics. When I buy a t-shirt in the summer, I wear it with shorts, boyfriend jeans or white skinnies. I can toss on a ball cap and some converses and go… Then, in the fall, that shirt looks great with flair jeans, tucked into boyfriend jeans and boots, under a scarf or beneath a jacket. In the winter, it’s perfect under a leather jacket or a sweater, paired with a pair of comfy leggings, or under a heavy scarf… it makes a great extra layer! Then it takes me into the spring, with a pair of skinny jeans and flats. Most days I can add some leggings [or jeggings] and that t-shirt is what I’ll be living in all season. Here are some of my picks from Nordstrom:

And for the bottom? Here are my picks for some jeans, jeggings and pants that will carry me through a season. I’ve got my eyes on these when I am buying my wardrobe basics at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

    This is the perfect everyday look for me. Super soft t-shirt and a slouchy pair of boyfriend jeans, nothing gets better than that.

    Hi ya

    Would be nice to see some data on young student athletes and their choices when considering current fashions. As a father of four multi sport kids living Ontario Canada it’s always difficult to find the kids cloths that they feel are cozy but put current considering trend.
