Casual Cool Style Under $75 With Nordstrom
If you have followed me for any amount of time you would probably agree with me that I am the ultimate casual girl. I am your go-to for any outfit inspiration that is comfortable, casual, & versatile. For some reason, it’s hard for me to justify purchasing items that I will only wear one time, especially if they are super expensive. That's exactly why I love shopping at Nordstrom; because they have such great style finds in the B.P and TopShop departments that are affordable and match my personal style perfectly.
Have you ever walked past a girl, checked out her outfit, and thought, “WOW, she is so cool”?
If you have envied other’s casual cool style but have yet to perfect it on your own, this look is for you! To achieve that look I really wanted to find some pieces that I know I will be wearing on repeat this Fall, Winter, and really.. year round. I have found a few great basics all under $70 that will help vamp up your wardrobe & are guaranteed to be pieces that you go back to wear over & over again. When you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing and know how they fit & feel, you feel most confident. These three pieces are flattering, fun, and ultimately will go with everything you already own.

CASUAL. COOL. CONFIDENT.
THE BEST SKINNY JEANS YOU WILL EVER OWN
Who doesn't love a pair of well fitting black skinny jeans? The problem is, all the pairs I usually find that fit decent are well over $100 or $200. I love that this pair from TopShop is well under that price, only $70, for the perfect fit. They have a high waist for a flattering fit that gives a great shape. I also like that they are a blend of spandex and cotton, so you don't need to worry about them getting too small when you wash them. They stretch a little when you move, so they are never too tight like some high waisted jeans tend to be. For this specific pair I think they run TTS (I am wearing a 28 x 30), but if you don’t love your jeans snug, size up. I also own these pants in a 28 x 32, which is the longer version of this slightly cropped pant. I like the 30 length best because you can wear them with both mules or a bootie that comes up the leg more! These are by far my most flattering and comfortable jeans.
CROPPED MILITARY JACKET
TopShop does it again! Say goodbye to your typical olive green army jacket (actually, don’t say goodbye.. cause that’s never going out of style, but just introduce it to a new friend) and say HELLO to this perfect pink jacket. The second I lay eyes on this coral cropped military jacket, I knew it was going to become one of my most worn layering pieces for Fall. Little did I know I was also going to wear it as a shirt haha! This cropped style is right on trend; it’s an easy “add to cart” in my book. Especially since you’ve already purchased the
Since mules really took over the world of shoes a few years ago, I can not get enough. Think of mules as an updated flat; they are backless and easy to slip on.. the perfect addition to any casual cool look. I am loving that white is trending for Fall & Winter shoes again this year. My favorite thing about white shoes is that they can literally be worn with anything! You can wear with denim, black pants, a skirt, dresses, shorts; you name it and I promise they will go with the outfit. This white pair is especially cute because of the small studded details and black bottoms, making them a perfect match with the rest of this outfit. These Treasure&Bond mules run true to size and are soft like butter. They are under $70 I will have been wearing them non-stop, and I see no end to the amount of ways I can wear them!
CONFIDENT IS THE NEW COOL
So you got the perfect clothes to rock your “casual cool girl” look, but most importantly.. you have to wear confidence! That is always stylish, and always on trend. Whether you prefer to wear your clothes just like you see them styled online, or prefer to boldly forge a path for your own style, be confident in whatever you wear. YOU are that cool girl on the street that people stop to look at. YOU have unique style that's all yours. YOU are cool & can confidently rock any look that you want to!
I love this look because to me, it is the ultimate easy, casual, and cool look. I hope that this look and these pieces inspire you to maybe try something new, or update an old favorite. I know that I feel amazing wearing these pieces, and I think you will to! And of course, the fact that they are all under $70 each can make you confident that you are adding quality items to your wardrobe that are versatile, flattering, and basics you will wear over & over again.
Huge thank you to Nordstrom for partnering with me on this post. As always, all styling and opinions are my own.
