I don’t know if it’s because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, or if I’m just craving color during these cold, bleak winter days, but I’ve been really enjoying wearing shades of pink lately!
Today I styled two easy looks with pink tops that you can certainly wear anytime, but they would also be perfect for any casual Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) celebrations you may have coming up. Best of all, everything I’m wearing is available at Nordstrom, for easy one-stop shopping!
This first look features a ribbed Rails cardigan in a bold shade they call Malibu Pink. I discovered this sweater when I was shopping in-store, and I was immediately drawn in by the striking color and the soft and cozy knit.
Cropped cardigans are trending right now, and this one is full of subtle yet fabulous details – from the raglan sleeves, to the slightly puff sleeves, to the contrasting horn buttons. The 22 1/2″ length is perfect for pairing with high rise jeans, and it runs true to size.
I managed to snag mine while it was on sale, but it’s back to full price at the moment. I’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if I see it on sale again!
These jeans are the AG Farrah Bootcut in 2 Years Dropout that I picked up a few weeks ago, during a different in-store shopping trip.
They have a comfortable 10 3/4″ front rise with a 32 1/2″ inseam with a 19″ leg opening, making them perfect for pairing with heels for date night. I like how the bootcut silhouette balances out the volume in the sweater.
The black pointed toe leather booties keep a cohesive look on the bottom and extend the line of the leg.
They’re also on an amazing sale right now and still fairly well stocked! These are my go-to black booties for dressier looks when I want a heel.
For an outfit with a more casual vibe, I grabbed this Caslon drape neck sweatshirt in the Pink Gale. It’s more of a subtle shade of pink with lavender undertones, and it has some fun details that set it apart from your typical sweatshirt. Plus, it’s a great price, at $45!
In addition to the drape neck styling, it has banded cuffs and waistband and a flattering shape through the waist area.
I typically don’t love a drop shoulder, but it has a nice slim cut through the arms, and the seam up the back is another fun detail.
This top comes in several colors; in fact, I also ordered the Black Wash, which I also like a lot. It runs true to size, or you could size up for more room in the arms.
I love light wash blue jeans with shades of pink, so I paired this top with the Mother Dazzler in a powder blue wash they call In The Blink Of An Eye.
The fabric is a soft and stretchy 78% cotton, 16% modal, 4% polyester, 2% elastane; and they have a 10 1/2″ front rise with a 28″ inseam and 13″ leg opening.
They’re similar to a pair I’ve been wearing non-stop for the past year or so, but these have finished hems, which makes them a little more refined.
The 28″ inseam is perfect for pairing with sneakers, or they slip easily over a higher shaft bootie like these Sorel Hi-Line Chelsea Boots.
When I took these pictures, these boots were in stock, but I see the Chalk/Ceramic color is gone now. Another option would be the Sorel Brex Block Heel Chelsea Boot.
I love the white boots for a change, but you could also wear grey or taupe with this outfit, or leather fashion sneakers are another good option.
