I haven’t really been personal shopping with clients a lot recently (more closet clean outs) and haven’t really shopped a ton for myself, but I’ve noticed when I have plans (which is not as much these days), I’ve wanted something a little more on trend to wear. I felt like my wardrobe needed a few updates for the rest of the season, so when Nordstrom asked me to cover women’s wear, I thought it was the perfect time to find some new, updated pieces! I found that I was wearing the same high-waisted, wide leg, lighter color denim jeans over and over because it updated my look (specifically all of the sweaters in my closet), so I needed a few more of options. I also wanted a few more non-itchy sweater and fun top options that I could wear to work as easily as I could running errands. And I really wanted a some new cool sneakers because Air Max’s and Air Jordan’s are back, and those were basically my favorite shoe growing up. So naturally, I was jonesing for them! Nordstrom’s website makes it really easy to find exactly what I’m looking for when I online shop. Plus, I love that they have free shipping and returns!
So, if you are looking for a few items to update your winter wardrobe, here are my recommendations:
The high waisted non-skinny jean look:
Finally, a high waisted non-skinny jean with stretch -Hallelujah! I’m digging the lighter color because it’s what’s on trend right now, so it gives an instant update to anything I pair them with!
Jeans (TTS)- Paige

I’ve worn the snot out of my black skinny jeans, so I went looking for a black high-waisted, non-skinny jean, and I found this pair. They also have stretch, which I love!!! I like the way they look with boots, and I’ve also worn them with my new Air Max’s– I love how it looked!
with boots and sneakers.
Non-itchy sweaters and fun tops:
I love the purple color, detail down the front and puff sleeve of this next sweater! The only draw back is that it has 4% wool. I decided the cuteness far outweighed the tiny bit of wool. Plus, it’s a good price point. I mean, look how cute it is….
This next sweater feels like you are wearing a barefoot dreams cardigan. If you find yourself wearing lots of sweatshirts at home, you can easily add this sweater to your rotation. It’s that cozy. I’ve been wearing it with my high waisted jeans (because it’s slightly cropped), so I’m comfy cozy and stylish!
I find that I wear cotton sweaters more than all the other sweaters in my closet. I love how flattering and feminine this cotton sweater is because, usually, cotton sweaters are just the standard cable knit sweater look. I love the pink color….
and grey color, too…
I am a sucker for a cute sweatshirt. Especially a sweatshirt that doesn’t necessarily look like a sweatshirt and has a dropped puff sleeve! Plus, the price can’t be beat!
I fully realize the next top is not for everyone, but I freaking love it!!! Here’s the thing- sometimes when you are going to do a trend, it’s cool to really do it! It feels almost couture or runway ready, which is why I love it! But if you feel like puff sleeves make you look like a linebacker sometimes, this top may not be for you.
I love the puff sleeve on this next top, and I like how the sleeve tapers to the forearm because it makes it a little different than all the other puff sleeve tops! I like that this top can be worn really dressy or worn casually with jeans!
I’m partial to the black (because y’all know how much I love black), but…
…the cream is really pretty, too!
If you love the look of the top above but you’re partial to a v-neck and ruching (both combined make for a very flattering combination), this next top is for you!
This next jacket is so darling! The picture does not do this jacket justice. When I wore it, my friend immediately commented on how cute it was. I like that this jacket can be worn dressy or casually. With a cute jacket like this, who cares what’s on underneath?
Miscellaneous wardrobe updates:
I shared on Instagram that an easy way to look put together on Zoom calls is put on a cute earring and a headband! The head band hides grays and grease! I’m pretty partial to these new faux leather headbands. I have a big head and headbands feel awkwardly large and weird on me, but not this one!!!
I’ve been a huge fan of the Lulu Align joggers, but I have officially found a better, less expensive pair!! I like them so much more that I immediately gave my Lulu Align joggers away. I just knew I wouldn’t wear them when I have this new, better pair! And I’m officially in love with my new Air Max’s. They are so retro and make me feel cool (hahaha!).
I hope you found a wardrobe update or two! I know I did – eeeek! If you found something, take a picture and share it with me! Just like my clients do! It makes me happy. Happy shopping!
