Luxe Holiday Gifts for the Fashionista

Thanks to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.

Happy Monday, friends! Can you believe it, Christmas is less than 6 weeks away!?! I need to get busy shopping. I have a bad habit of rounding up all these great ideas for my gift guides and forgetting to do my own holiday shopping. #occupationalhazards

That’s when Nordstrom comes to the rescue. I can always rely on them to be the one-stop shop for all my holiday needs, whether I’m shopping for myself or my family. And if I need my order right away? I love their BOPUS (Buy Online Pick Up in Store) and contactless curbside pickup options.

A lot of you like to know what’s on my holiday wish list, as it gives you ideas for gifts to give your daughters, or maybe what to put on your own wish list. Well, here are some ideas for you, all available at Nordstrom!

Every fashionista knows having essential layering pieces is key to creating effortless looks, and it doesn’t get more essential than a cashmere sweater.

If you aren’t allergic to wool, a few classic cashmere sweaters in versatile neutrals will serve you well.

I talk about Halogen cashmere a lot. It is truly one of the best values in cashmere.

This cashmere v-neck is super soft, has nice details, and it’s priced right under $100. It also comes in a crewneck and a turtleneck, and they all run true to size. I wear a small.

You might notice I’m wearing a new style of denim.

Straight ankle jeans are very on trend right now, so if you’re looking to update your jeans, or you just want to add some variety to your wardrobe, the Paige Cindy is a good place to start.

This pair has a nice medium wash denim with some subtle whiskering and fading, and the inseam is 27″.  For size reference, I’m wearing my usual size 28.

They slide perfectly over these Steve Madden pointed toe booties, and I love this light beige color for a change.

Speaking of light neutrals, this muted plaid double-breasted coat is a modern take on the traditional wool overcoat.

With more and more of our social events moving outdoors, having a variety of coats to suit different occasions is key, and adding a print to your wardrobe is a great way to mix it up.

I love the classic styling on this coat with its clean lines, notched lapels, front flap pockets, and three-quarter length.

It’s perfect for your dressier looks or to level up your more casual outfits as well, and it’s long enough to accommodate most cardigans.

This coat is fully lined and fits true to size, or you may want to size down if in between. I have it in the 6.

For your more casual looks, The North Face Westborough insulated quilted jacket makes the perfect everyday jacket.

I really like the curved hemline design, and it has side zip pockets and a front zip closure with snap storm flap.

It’s incredibly lightweight, with a durable water-repellent finish to keep you dry on rainy days.

This jacket also comes in black and navy, but I particularly love the white with the yellow and black accents. It runs true to size; I have the small.

For this post, I styled it over this grey cashmere blend sweater by the sustainable brand, Reformation, with my Kut from the Kloth Donna skinny jeans in the jet black wash.

This sweater is made with recycled cashmere, and it’s perfect for layering, but it also stands on its own when you want a simple look.

I sized up for length and a more relaxed fit, but you could stick with your usual size.

Finally, speaking of gifts for the fashionista, leather hiking boots are a huge trend this year, and these Marc Fisher Izzie shearling lace-up boots are such good quality.

The lug sole provides great traction, and they have a padded insole for extra comfort. I got them last year, so I’ve worn them quite a bit, and I’m always amazed by how comfortable they are for a chunky boot.

I do recommend sizing down half, though. I wish I had.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone on your holiday gift list, you’re sure to find the perfect holiday gift at Nordstrom.
