Outfit: Shades of Gray

James Perse Tee // Free Press Scarf // 7 for All Mankind Jeans // Jessica Simpson pumps

(all c/o Nordstrom Rack)

I have partnered up with Nordstrom Rack for a fun little styling challenge.  The challenge?  Three head to toe looks (including the shoes!) on a $500 budget.  The theme for the first look was “Gameday Glam,” but to be honest, I’m not a big sports fan.  So I opted to put together a chic casual look that I’d wear to work or out with friends… (or yes, to watch the game at the local dive bar.)  I stuck with a simple monochromatic palette, in soft shades of white and gray.  I’d been on the hunt for a pair of great gray jeans and these are just perfect.  The James Perse tee is incredibly soft (new fave) and I have to hand it to Jessica Simpson… she makes a great pair of shoes.  I’ll be running all over the city in these bad boys.  They’re incredibly comfortable and will look amazing with black tights once the temps cool down.

I have to say, I was a little bit nervous about this challenge.  I wanted to make sure I chose pieces I’d wear again and again afterward.  I’m feeling a little tired of fast fashion these days, and my experience with off-price retailers is that I usually end up buying pieces I regret purchasing later.  That said, I had a great experience shopping at Nordstrom Rack.  They have brands I trust & love (to name a few… 7 for All Mankind, Paige Denim, BCBG, and Vince) in styles I’ll keep and wear.

    Amen to kicking the fast fashion to the curb! I totally got sucked in for the first part of the year and now I’m regretting it and giving/selling a lot of my quick to buy purchases. Cross our fingers, I’ll use the $$ to buy the YSL heels!

      agree. I still love Zara + Forever 21 but am trying to focus upon buying the classic investment pieces I’ll have forever!
