The start of the school year is always a very busy time! My teacher friends and I plan a get together in December, because we know the odds of us finding time September through November is slim to none! Bearing that in mind, I also hardly have time to shop. My weekends are spent unwinding and then gearing back up for the start of the school week. This is why I am so glad I discovered Trunk Club for Women by Nordstrom. (Read more about Trunk Club in this blog post.)
I like to order a new trunk every season. For my fall trunk, I requested a bomber jacket and peep toe booties. My stylist made sure to include both as well as some other pieces that are perfect for fall. I love every item my stylist sent. However, some pieces fit me better than others and were more my style. Although I like to try something new from time to time, I tend to stick to the classics in fall.
Below are my thoughts on each piece and whether it something I am adding to my fall wardrobe. Without further ado…
A keeper! A sleeveless turtleneck sweater has been on my fall list for a long, long time. I love the camel color and the asymmetrical design adds some interest. This looks great over a long-sleeve t-shirt or layered over a button-up blouse.
Returned. I actually really, really like this top. However, I have a longer torso, so the fit is a bit too short. If you don’t have a long torso, then I say you should definitely purchase this top. The guesswork on how to layer is already done for you- so it makes the perfect grab and go outfit. Just throw on a pair of black pants and some ankle booties or heels, and you’re ready for a day at the office!
A keeper! The perfect turtleneck for layering. I plan on wearing it with a blazer or with my Halogen Asymmetrical Sleeveless Tunic.
Returned. This dress is gorgeous! Fits like a glove, the perfect length and the tie neck adds a bit of interest. However, it’s a bit sheer, so even with the lining you still need a slip. As much as I loved this dress, I couldn’t think of when/where I could wear this pretty little shift.
Returned. Trying this on, I kept singing Avril Lavigne’s “She was a skater girl, she lived in a skater’s world…” okay, I don’t even think those are the correct lyrics, but you get the idea. Cute dress and might have worked if I was still in my 20’s.
Returned. The aubergine color is perfect for fall and I love how these look paired with ankle booties. However, they were a bit too tight and I prefer a jean made from mostly cotton. These are 53% rayon, 23% cotton and 22% polyester. Also, I prefer a slightly higher-rise.
A keeper! First off, I love Madewell, so was really excited to receive these! The fit is perfect- super slimming with a slightly higher-rise. I love how these look with the Halogen Sleeveless Tunic and ankle booties. They also look great with flats. The perfect pair of black pants!
Returned. I really, really wanted to love this jacket. The color is perfect for fall and I love the zipper and sleeve details. The only problem is the thickness. With Southern California fall and winter being warm most of the time, I didn’t think I would get much wear out of this. However, if you live in a cooler climate, then this is the PERFECT bomber jacket, which is a huge trend right now!
Both are keepers!
First off, these flats are gorgeous, the perfect color and are insanely comfortable! They look equally as good with dresses and pants and the grey color allows them to be paired with just about every color. I love these so much, that I wore them 4 out of 5 days last week!
Second, these Toms booties are meant to be! About a year ago, I ordered them kept trying them on, but ultimately decided to return them. I started seeing them in a beautiful burgundy color during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but didn’t purchase. So, when these peep-toe booties showed up in my trunk, I knew it was fate. I eagerly put them on and couldn’t believe how comfortable they are! They look great with the Madewell pants and are really cute paired with my many striped dresses. I will definitely be wearing these non-stop this fall!
