casual post: booties + military jacket


A week ago I created a few outfits from the big Nordstrom sale (original post here) and today is my first real-life outfit creation!  You’ll notice I used a different bag from the original post. 

That other bag. Let me tell you. I originally received it in the mail damaged (I might have done it myself… the packaging was intense and I unwrapped it similarly to Christmas morning…), so I sent it back and have been trying to re-order it since. It comes in 2 colors (gray and burgundy), I love both, would take either color, but everytime I’ve placed the order since it gets cancelled. I’m not sure if it’s a fluke, or they really get one bag back in stock and then don’t update their website on time when the order is complete?  Either way, I tried for the 6th (I’m determined) time this morning to order the bag again.  So far, so good. We will see. I really love that bag – and it’s only $32!  Ok, enough with the crazy 
 talk…

I love how this outfit turned out.  I have tiny ankles in comparison to my calves, so even though the denim I’m wearing are considered “legging-like”, I will always get a little bit wider look than I prefer.  My tee is actually last years version, and I gotta say — this years version is way better! I ordered this year’s in 2 other colors, and they are much more structured and guarantee they will hold up better. Mine is somewhat stretchy and doesn’t hold shape very well.

This jacket is soooo soft also. It’s almost like a t-shirt. It will be perfect for cooler nights this late summer/early fall, especially in FL! My only qualm is the back is tied together by another string. It’s long and falls to a weird spot on my legs. I plan to just cut them and re-tie at a better spot. For you taller girls, no worries! This jacket is sold out online (right now), but things re-stock all the time and I’ll keep an eye out. Below are similar cute options!

The booties I’m wearing are incredibly comfortable also and have the cutest cut-out pattern on the side. I ordered them in my regular size and although they feel a little loose around the ankles (LOL, I tell ya…), the shoe width and length is perfect.  I can’t wait to actually wear them in a month… or two…. ok, maybe three in Florida. 🙂 Below are all the booties I ordered during the Nordstrom sale, I haven’t received the chestnut colored ones yet, so the jury is still out there. The gray ones are incredibly comfortable!  And also come in burgundy.
