Fashion is hard when it comes to summer-to-fall transitions.
Throw a hurricane in there and things just got a whole lot harder. For anyone affected by Hurricane Harvey – you are in our thoughts and prayers this week, as I know we’re all hoping this storm quickly fizzles out. Isn’t it crazy how everything can change so suddenly? And in this case – because of weather? The rain hasn’t stopped here in Austin and Chloe and I have found ourselves bundling up to a cozy couple of days in. Rest is top of mind over here after an extremely busy busy busy New York City trip and playing catch-up here in Austin immediately after. It’s been a physically and mentally draining week and sometimes I have to give myself pep talks to get back into a restful state of mind (who else is with me on that?). Sidenote: Big shout out to everyone who reached out about what I witnessed on my last day in New York City.
But enough about the weather – phew – we’ve been hearing it all weekend. Back to outfitting … because again, fashion is hard when it comes to transitions. When fashion gets hard and weird (do we wear sweaters or tank tops or cut-offs or culottes?), my first instinct is simply to just get down to the basics: comfort. That’s not hard to do in a city as casual as Austin, as we are quick to pull out our favorite tees and jeans. Today I’ve partnered with my favorite comfy-cool-casual-chic wear destination: Nordstrom, to talk what I’m wearing in these stages of transition. To stay trendy, I’ve pulled out these distressed denim darlings by Leith (such a great price and so comfy) and matched it with my favorite 3 comfy-cozy summer-appropriate and fall-ready tees. This tee by Nordstrom is my top-selling product for August and the soft-to-touch and laid-back vibe is why it’s flying off the racks. I’ve also linked this striped peplum darling (that price tag tho! also crazy soft) and a favorite slouchy Free People tee. You’ve heard it here a million times before: softness, comfort, confidence. You know the drill.
You can find all these must-have basics for transitioning your summer wardrobe at Nordstrom. I’ve been covering a lot of these types of outfits on Instagram lately, so you can also follow along my Instagram account for more cozy-chic casual looks. XOXO
