Fall Wardrobe Essentials for Less

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, I’ve been clearing out the summer styles from my closet, taking inventory, and assessing what I need to add to my fall wardrobe this year.

I know a lot of you are doing the same, and it can be overwhelming, especially if you haven’t done a good closet clean out in a while. Sometimes it feels like you have nothing left!

If you find yourself needing to stock up on some fall wardrobe essentials, Nordstrom Rack is a great place to save up to 70% off designer brands like Vince, Madewell, Joe’s Jeans, 7 For All Mankind, R Minkoff, and more.

This Madewell Ridgeton Pullover Sweater is 100% cotton, and I love the pretty textural knit in a gorgeous russet shade for fall. It also comes in ivory, dark blue, and a really pretty lilac.

If you prefer cashmere, I found this Magaschoni cashmere v-neck for 67% off! It’s a really nice classic fall/winter wardrobe piece, and it comes in tons of colors. Both of these sweaters run true to size; I have the small in both.

The jewelry I’m wearing here is also by Madewell. I love their accessories for everyday outfits, and the prices are really good, even at full retail. When I can get them on sale, even better!

I’ve been wearing these puffed hoop earrings a ton lately, and my necklace sold out, but this is similar.

The Joe’s Jeans I’m wearing here also sold out, but Nordstrom Rack has a lot of good deals on denim right now. And true confessions, I cut these because they were too long, and I cut too much off. D’oh!

I broke my own rule, to start small. You can always cut more, but you can’t reattach. At this point, I should just make them a crop, but I was going for a full length look with these outfits.

They’re supposed to be flares, but they’re more of a relaxed straight on me, and I kind of like it.

Oh, and while we’re here, let’s talk about this studded hobo bag. It’s the perfect everyday size, and I love the light cognac color with olive and rust and other shades of brown.

R Minkoff is one of my favorite handbag designers; I’m always drawn to her modern, urban, slightly edgy vibe.

The shoe game at Nordstrom Rack is pretty strong right now, as well! I’ve been wanting to try the chunky lug sole loafer, but I didn’t want to spend a lot.

These Me Too Blaze Lug Sole Penny Loafers are a great way to dip my toe into the trend… so to speak! They also come in a Charcoal Patent Crackle, and they run true to size.

And you all know how much I love my Kork-Ease clogs, so I was thrilled to find these Korks by Kork-Ease d’Orsay clogs at such a good price.

If they’re gone in your size, you can checkout these other styles of Korks by Kork-Ease clogs and shoes.

At Nordstrom Rack, Standard Shipping is free on orders over $89, or you can take advantage of Free Ship to a Nordstrom Rack or Nordstrom store on select orders.

  4. I missed your jewelry line launch yesterday along with your blog post (will have to go back and read it!) but I saw pictures on Instagram last night on you and other bloggers wearing your designs. So many fun things! Congratulations! I am so happy for you! 😊

  5. What socks do you wear with the loafers? Any particular brand or format (low rise no show etc)? I don’t want the socks to show above the loafer top.

    Thank you!
