I've shared a lot of my favorites from the Nordstrom Sale already. You can read about my personal favorites here and then my gift-guide here! I've also styled this ruffled top and you can see a more fall-appropriate look here (you can find product info here).
Today I am sharing some of my favorite wear-to-work staples. I styled this gorgeous lace shell and tweed mini as a desk-to-drinks look. I absolutely love this tweed skirt. It came out last year, and I got it then, too. It's a great, versatile piece. You can wear it out at night but also to work. Not to mention it looks great with tights in the winter. The entire skirt is somewhat stretchy/flexible so it really sucks you in which makes for a flattering look. The thick waistband is also slimming and figure flattering. It runs true to size for a figure hugging fit.
I am in a size 4. I'm always between a 2 and 4 in skirts, but this skirt is really fitted, so I got the 4 and it fits like a glove. The lace tank is a classic staple that you can wear now and into the fall. It runs slightly big, so if between sizes, size down. I am in an XS. I've pulled some more of my favorite wear-to-work pieces from the sale below!
Classic Trench Coat// Trench coats are usually pretty pricey regardless of brand or where you buy from. I have one from Brooks Brothers that I just love and wear all the time. It's somewhat seasonless and works on the weekend and weekdays. I really love this option because the subtle leather trim gives it a chic, updated look and it is very affordable compared to other trench coat options!
Tweed Pencil Mini Skirt// This is one of my #Nsale picks
Black Sheath Dress// Part conservative, but also part sexy, this is a great wear-to-work dress, but also a great evening dress depending on how you style it. The cut is so ladylike, but the shape of the dress accentuates your curves, making it a gorgeous piece! Pair it with classic black pumps and pearls for a beautiful wear-to-work ensemble, or strappy sandals and statement earrings to wear out to dinner!
Wrap Watch// A watch is a staple for both men and women. I am definitely a watch person, so I have a lot, but in most cases, I'm always wearing my Cartier tank watch. However, I absolutely love (and want) the Hermes Cape Cod Double Tour watch. It's a beautiful classic-- one day! This watch looks so similar and at $116, it definitely won't break the bank.
Leopard Belt// If you work in a conservative office and want to add a dose of 'fun' to your outfit, I think a leopard print belt is a great, but subtle way to do so. I love wearing all black and adding the leopard belt for that 'pop' that all black sometimes needs! I also love a leopard belt with a crisp white button down shirt and dark skinny jeans. It's such a classic look but not bland!
Cashmere Waterfall Cardigan// This is a great price and you'll get an even better price per wear. I like to keep a cardigan just like this on the back of my chair. Whether the air conditioning is on full blast or it's snowing outside, a cozy cashmere sweater is just what you need. Buy it in a neutral so it will go with whatever you have on at work! It's also the perfect loungewear piece, too, because it looks great with leggings and a tee!
**There's also a less pricey cashmere wrap (under $100!) which is also a great option for keeping at your desk. It's 1/3 the price of my favorite cashmere wrap and it's the exact same size. I'd go for a neutral like the oatmeal, gray, or black, but I also love the blush shade for a pop of color!
Diamond Studs// Besides pearl studs, diamond studs are my go-to earrings for everyday wear. My dad gave me gorgeous real diamond studs when I was 14, but I don't wear them on an everyday basis, just because it makes me nervous. I have a few pair of CZ studs that I like to wear. For example, I'll wear the CZ studs while traveling/on vacation, I keep a pair at my desk because I always forget earrings in the morning, and keep an extra pair in my arsenal because I'm prone to losing earrings. This option is a great price, and if real diamond studs aren't within your budget, these are 'believable' because they're only 2 carats total weight, which are what my real diamond studs are (that means you have a carat on each ear!). I also like these as a cheaper option and they're more 'fun'!
Nude Wedge// A nude wedge is a wardrobe staple whether it is for work or play! I personally prefer a wedge whenever I can get away with it because it is much more comfortable than a regular pump. I love the peep toe on these and the embellishment at the toe (there's a closed-toe option, too!). The price for the quality and brand is a really good buy, too. They also come in navy and black, which I think are both great neutral shades for the office!
Leather Tote// I love love love this simple tan leather bag. Whether you are commuting or traveling a lot for work, a leather tote is an absolute essential. When buying a leather tote, I always make sure it is large enough to fit my computer, and this one is! It's a quality, neutral piece that's definitely worth the price.
