Distressed Details

February 13, 2018

Hi, guys! I’m so excited to be bringing you this round of my designer picks from the best retailer out there once again. Nordstrom never disappoints; I’m always so impressed with the selection they offer, especially this time around. There were so many incredible options – I had such a hard time narrowing it down! The struggle was real, lol. But I came away with some gorgeous picks that I think you’ll love just as much as I do.

You all know how I love a good sweater for these chillier San Diego days! As soon as I saw this one from Helmut Lang I knew I had to have it. The distressed detailing is eye-catching but different from typical distressing, especially the loose-thread details on the sleeves. It’s subtle and kind of delicate but it does the trick; this piece really stands out from the rest of the sweater crowd. I love shoulder details as a trend in general, so of course I gravitated towards this one. It’s the perfect balance of cozy and edgy…my two favorite things! I snagged a great pair of distressed denim to play off the details of the sweater, but it would also look amazing with a pair of clean black denim or even your favorite blue jeans.

Nothing elevates a look like great shoes – take it from a shoe-obsessed self proclaimed expert 😉 I reach for these Jimmy Choos over and over again. Seriously, I wear them all the time. They’re so versatile but they definitely do not blend in. The mesh gives them that edge that I love, but the silhouette is classic and feminine. I love how the leather strips play off the lines on the sweater, too. I promise you, these booties will go with everything in your closet! I will never get tired of zipping into them; they make me feel so feminine-cool every single time. They’re the kind of investment that you’ll love for a long time! 

And of course, it would be remiss of me not to mention this amazing handbag. I was really feeling into whites this time (if you know me, you know it’s usually all black around here, lol) so I grabbed this classically-cool, ’70’s-esque Gucci shoulder bag. It adds instant flair, for sure!

Special thanks to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
