Utility Jacket + Cowl Neck Sweater


Happy Tuesday gals! I can’t believe we are already well into November. The time is just flying by! Armaan and I are headed on a little road trip this weekend to someplace I am SO excited about (and totally appropriate with the election being this week )…Washington D.C.! I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared this before, but Armaan isn’t an American citizen, he was born and raised in India. BUT we are doubly excited because a few weeks ago he finally got his green card! What better place to celebrate than our nations capital? We’re going to be doing all the touristy things we can fit in, but if you have any recommendations on eating, places to visit, etc., send them my way!

Anyways, on to this look! It’s no secret that Nordstrom is one of my favorite retailers to hit up when I’m looking for affordable, essential pieces. This look is one of those fall throw on & go looks, that can take you anywhere. This utility jacket is one of my favorite pieces I have in my closet. It’s great for layering, wearing alone and in any season! I love that the color is more muted, making it almost a neutral for any jeans and tee type of look! Also, this cowl neck sweater might possibly be the softest thing I own. It’s under $40 and I’m wearing the S for reference, but it runs on the bigger side (perfect if you want a cozier look!). Another great layering sweater option is this cute piece and it’s on sale! I paired it one of my go-to pair of distressed denim that’s under $100 and cognac accessories! They are so comfortable on, you forget you’re actually wearing jeans, which is also a plus in my book (#wouldwearleggingseveryday) and great for travel too!

Also, if you’re in a shopping mood, Nordstrom is having it’s Fall Clearance Sale right now! If you missed out on some of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale pieces, a lot of them are back on sale (even more discounted than a few months ago!). A good time to get done some early, early holiday shopping!
