Back To Basics - Nordstrom Capsule Closet Staples
Even if you're not into a capsule wardobe, you always find yourself needing the basics. As I got dressed today, searching for the ivory sweater [that I wore yesterday] I realized how I need to stock up on the neutral staple pieces so I can easily throw on my new navy blue coated pants and go! Below I rounded up some of pieces from Nordstrom Made Brands. I personally wear all of these brands and can attest to the great quality! I also love what a lot of them stand for; recycled material, proceeds to homelessness etc...if you've been following me for a while, you know I especially love a higher purpose when purchasing the goodies! Happy basic building!
These Zella Lived In Leggings are my favorite go to staple for traveling, running errands or lounging around the house [I don't work out, but they're great for that too!] These full length are too long for me, as I am only 5'2, so I wear the cropped, which I show below. They'd be great for anyone 5'4 and over, I'd say!
Runs true to size.
I love this sling bag! It's just a simple staple accessory for that on the go lifestyle, especially if you're a mom like me, and like to be hands free!
Everyone needs a black cardigan. This comes in a few colors and is a bit see through, making it a great piece for layering! I would love this over a thin long sleeve shirt [I'm always cold] or if you're on the warmer side, a tank or tee!
This thermal pullover is something I would wear everyday to work, in every color. They have more neutral colors but I am a sucker for a pale pink! I love the neckline and wrist detail!
My favorite of all time, a slouchy simple hoodie! This is perfect for everyday wear and can be layered with a vest, sherpa jacket or even a shacket with the hood sticking out the back!
We all need a pair of aviators and for $15 these are fantastic. They come in 2 other colors as well!
Here are the cropped version of the Zella Lived In Leggings I mentioned above. They are thick and such a great quality. again, if you love cropped, great but if you're 5'3 or shorter, these are great for a regular legging too!
Runs true to size.
Halogen is such a great brand. I love the material and who doesn't need a gazillion white tees?! This tunic style is great for leggings or jeans too.
Just your basic long sleeve, ribbed tee. Perfect for year round and great for layering. Pair it with cozy wide leg pants or with jeans and booties for a ready to go, chic look for a day out!
3 words; Faux Leather Leggings. These are a great price point if you're just trying to get your feet wet with this trend!
I couldn't live without my joggers. In fact, I wear them everyday to bed, to lounge, to go out...I'm that girl. This pair looks sleek and chic and can be dressed up or down for a Sunday Football out with sneakers and a denim jacket or chilling in on your couch with your favorite t shirt.
Just a perfect basic long sleeve cotton tee, perfect for layering or wearing by itself. Comes in a few colors.
You always need the under layer tank. This is perfect on it's own with loungers or great for under a cardigan, or see through/thin top. It also comes in black.
Just a really great, low impact sports bra that I would wear more as a bralette under my t shirts. I'd also rock this under sweaters in the colder weather to stay as comfy as possible without the annoying underwire, super structured bra. Comes in a few colors!
Lastly, of course, an everyday pair of jeans. These mom jeans are so perfect and versatile; I wear mine for every occasion. They look adorable with booties and pair so easily with sneakers for an everyday, easy style.
I hope this helps provide some wardrobe inspo and makes your shopping a little easier! Thanks so much for being here!
