Every fall, I always get the urge to add some new pieces to my closet to celebrate the change in seasons. That's why it was perfect timing that I recently had the opportunity to attend the store opening event for the new Nordstrom Rack in Eugene, OR! I already shared with you how much fun I had browsing the store, and now I wanted to show you a few of the different looks I put together during my shopping adventure! Nordstrom Rack has so many on-trend pieces so I had a really tough time narrowing it down, but I managed to choose three outfits that I felt fit perfectly with my personal style.
Look #1: Polished Work Look
I currently work from home, which means I don't have to dress up on a daily basis. Most of the time I love it, however, there are definitely days that I miss getting dressed up in cute clothes and going into an office. My recent work trip to Florida made me realize that my closet is seriously lacking in stylish yet business appropriate looks. I was inspired to put together this outfit because occasionally I do go to events where I need to dress up. I'm a big fan of feminine pieces, but I also love things that have a little bit of an edge which is why I thought this combination was perfect.
I was instantly drawn to this pretty gray floral blouse, and I thought that this sleek leather panel pencil skirt would be the perfect way to balance it out. Mixing prints is another big trend this season, so classic leopard pumps seemed like a great way to give this look even more personality!
I loved how the rose gold stud details gave a little toughness to this girly blouse!
This look might not work in an ultra conservative office, but it would totally work for any event I'll need to attend in Portland where I want to look sophisticated without being too stuffy.
