Hi, friends! I’ve been lucky enough to be traveling all over the place lately, including NYC and London for Fashion Week! It’s been such a great time. I was obviously excited to be part of the NYFW/LFW madness, but I mostly just loved spending time in the cities themselves, especially this time of year. Fall is in the air, which means fall color palettes are making their debut! There is this great nude/camel color that is part of Fall/Winter 2018’s color palette that I am obsessing over. Fashion Week is the perfect time to try stepping out of your comfort zone a little bit (of course while staying true to your personal style). I decided to go with a monochromatic look, which I always find to be effortlessly chic.
You already know how much I love Nordstrom, but I feel like they’ve really blown fall out of the water already! They have an endless selection of new and amazing pieces no matter what kind of update your wardrobe needs. When I’m struggling to find a certain piece at other retailers, I know I can always count on them to come through. So when I was tackling the monochromatic challenge, they’re the first place I looked to find things that would fit well together.
I don’t know what it is about this color trend, but I felt awesome! I think keeping things monochromatic really elongates your legs and torso and makes you feel a million feet tall. I was initially inspired by this amazingly cozy sweater. The drape is sooo perfect and I seriously think I could live in this thing because it’s so soft. This lightweight sweater could not be more ideal for transitioning from summer to fall and even into winter. It layers beautifully with a flirty bralette or even a simple white tee for the warmer days, and a coat or leather jacket for the colder days – that definitely kept me warm while we were walking around during New York’s cool, rainy days. It’s got that cool-girl slouch while still feeling structured enough to be dressed up a little bit with some leather…big shocker there!
I grabbed my favorite pair of neutral-toned leather pants (similar here). There is no investment quite like a pair of genuine leather pants. They will carry you through season after season and outfit after outfit. If you’ve been waiting for a sign to invest in some, this is it! You could easily go casual on this look with some cool slides, but you know me…I gotta pump things up a little 😉 Suede pumps added the perfect amount of texture and these still kept the monochromatic vibes going.
I want to challenge you guys to branch out and wear whatever makes you feel awesome! Get out of your comfort zone every once in awhile. It doesn’t mean you have to break from your personal style; there are plenty of ways to shake things up while staying true to who you are.
Thanks for visiting! Xx Erica
