My New Favorite Outfit – Distressed Jeans, Olive Tunic and Gold Kicks

I’m trying to keep shopping to a minimum until the pieces get finalized on the shopping list for the Style Challenges® Spring 2018 Capsule Wardrobe (which if you missed this announcement, will be released on March 9th). But I really needed a few transition pieces to freshen up my closet until then. I’m so bored with every sweater, pair of jeans and boots in my closet right now. Hurry up spring!

Recently I picked up a couple of new outfits from Nordstrom’s spring collection. While I usually stick to shopping them for classic basics that will last, they also have a lot of trend options under $50 – including most of what I’m wearing here. There’s SO much I want to share with you about each of these pieces so let’s just dive right in.

This bateau neck knit tunic is so cozy and soft. It’s THE perfect spring transition piece and it comes in four different colors – olive, black, coral and gray. I don’t have many olive shirts so I went with this one and loved it so much that I got coral for something brighter. The wide neck shows off your shoulders but if you don’t want to wear a strapless bra, you can layer a black tank top (like I did) or wear a lace bralette with the straps showing. It has other cute details like a frayed hem and seam up the back. Sizing Tip: It runs big, I’m wearing an XS.

Moving on to these gold slip on sneakers. I already had a cheap pair that I bought a few years ago but they’re starting to fall apart. It was past time for an upgrade and since these are something I wear on a regular basis in the spring, I went with this Dr. Scholl’s pair for comfort. They have plenty of cushioning and I love the woven detail on these. They come in 5 colors and are 30% off right nowSizing Tip: These run true to size. Mine were slightly tight in my regular size but I didn’t size up because they are breaking in (could be because my feet have been swollen lately too!)

Update:  My shoes are running low on inventory.  Here are some other pairs that would also look cute with this outfit.


Alright let’s talk about these distressed jeans for a minute. I’m usually not a distressed jeans person but these are so perfect that my daughter just had me order her a pair. We’ve both been on the lookout for a pair with slight distressing but no holes and these fit the bill perfectly!  BUT the best part is the price – the quality is similar to premium denim for this price point. They hold their shape and don’t stretch out a bit. I’ll definitely be ordering more jeans from this brandSizing Tip:  These fit true to size.nordstrom distressed jeans

I’m a simple accessories girl when it comes to every day, anything more feels too fussy.  This circle charm necklace is one of my new favorites because I can wear it with everything and it’s only $12!  It pairs perfectly with these flat oval hoop earrings. You’re going to want both!
