Happy Thursday, friends! Just one more day until the long weekend. Did I take you by surprise with this unprecedented Thursday post? Well, it’s a special day because I am co-hosting this week’s Thursday Fashion File Link-up with Jill from Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom. How exciting!
OOTD Look 1 Using 3 of 5 Key Pieces for Fall
In honor of the Thursday Fashion File theme, I thought I’d post a couple fall OOTD shots highlighting a few recent finds from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. My wardrobe was due for some serious updates and I felt lucky to find five key pieces for fall at this year’s sale.
The jeans are by 7 For All Mankind and I was drawn to the idea that they have a frayed hem but aren’t extremely distressed, overall. I took my usual jean size and the fit is perfect. Love them!
The sweater vest is from Vince Camuto. It has a fun waffle-knit texture and kangaroo front pocket. Available in 4 colors and I thought the grey would be a great mix-and-match piece for transitioning to cooler weather. I saw this piece in real life prior to purchase and thought it ran a bit long so went for the petite version in my usual size.
For this outfit, I paired the sweater with a white button down but can see it with a chambray shirt and black bottom or with a striped or solid tee and some joggers.
I loved the soft French grey color of this Tory Burch bag and it was such a good price at the Anniversary Sale. While not a planned purchase, my light neutral bag needed updating and this fit the bill perfectly!
OOTD Look 1 Using 2 of 5 Key Pieces for Fall
For the second fall look I paired a Halogen leather a-line skirt with a teal short sleeve turtleneck (old, similar here), J. Crew jean jacket and an old pair of Aquatalia riding boots that I still just love and can’t get rid of (similar style here).
The skirt was another piece I saw in real life and it was so soft! I thought the a-line shape would hold up to wearing better than a pencil cut, which I was afraid would stretch out with wear. Combine that with the fact that I had a leftover birthday gift card for just the right amount and I decided to splurge on this piece. For a date night look, I plan to pair this skirt and jacket with a silky print cami and my Kenneth Cole open-toe booties (similar).
5 Key Pieces for Fall
- Jeans. Frayed and step-hems are still on point, as are overall distressed/destroyed versions. Shown above – 7 For All Mankind frayed hem jeans
- A black a-line skirt. Heavy cotton twill, ponte, wool and corduroy are all good choices for fall. Shown above – Halogen leather a-line skirt
- A layering sweater or lightweight vest. Shown above – Vince Camuto waffled sweater vest
- A jean jacket. Shown above – J. Crew jean jacket
- A neutral handbag that coordinates with your fall color palette. Shown above – Tory Burch handbag

Thanks for co-hosting! Love your fall looks!
Thanks so much and thank you for stopping by!
I love both of these looks and I think you found some great pieces to transition to fall! Those jeans are great and I also love the skirt–what a fun wardrobe addition!
Thanks so much! I’m hoping to wear the skirt a lot. Forgot to mention in the post but it also has pockets! <3 Thanks for stopping by!
Thanks for hosting the party. I tried to follow you on twitter, but the link didn’t work.

Oh my goodness! I love both these outfits. I am not much into fashion, but I think I could pull off both these looks. They are cute and comfy and I have most of the items (or something similar) in my closet already. I need the sweater vest though, so I think I will start looking. Great outfits.
Thanks so much, glad you like!
Having these key items in your wardrobe is as essential as having your panties and bra. They are needed to complete many different looks. Way to go! Would love to connect at http://the-wardrobe-stylist.com/2017/08/31/warmups-pre-post-workout/
Thanks so much, Rania! Glad you stopped by!
You look great in that skirt..such a nice ensemble. I love wearing my jean jacket whenever I can.
Thanks so much Carrie! It was a bit of a decadent purchase but I DO think I can actually get a lot of wear from it! And agree – jean jackets just work with so much!
