Oh How I Love Thee

I love getting to partner with Nordstrom!  For one, I just love their plus size collection.  They have such a great selection that I feature them on the blog all of the time.  As I’ve said, I would love to be a buyer for their plus size department (hint hint).

Another thing I love about Nordstrom is they offer free shipping and free returns with no minimum purchase.  That means you can try things on in the comfort of your own home.  How great is that?!  You can read about their return policy here.  Plus, if you need something right away, you can get expedited shipping or even curbside pick-up.

Work-Appropriate Jeans

Ok, so let’s finally get into this first look!  It’s a great outfit for those with a business casual dress code or casual Fridays. You might question the jeans, that’s fair.  But, due to a few details, denim is suddenly office-appropriate [hooray]!

These plus size jeans are more likely to be HR-approved because they are a bootcut leg, which is more proper than a skinny jean and certainly more refined than a boyfriend style. But, what really makes these jeans unique is their dark wash and dark stitching.  Aren’t they great?

More Outfit Details

Make any pair of jeans look better by adding a blazer.  A white blazer is a great choice, especially for summer, spring, and fall.  Plus, pairing dark denim with bright white makes for a nice contrast.

Adding a olive top became an easy choice once I decided on these snake print pointed flats.  Earthy tones with a nod to safari chic.  And these flats are fabulous with their metallic accents.  It makes them easy to dress up but still practical for work.

Transition from Day to Evening

Pull this metallic clutch and lacy tank from your tote.  Then swap out the small huggie hoops for large hoops.  Add this layered necklace.  I have it and love it!  It’s really great if you have a larger neck since it is 18″ at the shortest with a 3″ extender.

And complete your look by pulling out a face palette to darken up your eyes and freshen up your makeup.  I like that this palette is available in 2 shades: fair/light and medium/tan.  But, I like that this palette includes bronzer and deeper shades.  Spritz your wrists and neck with perfume.  Now you’re all set to paint the town red!

  1. Love this look. I have a pair of jean trousers, they are my all time favorite!! Made by Jag, I bought them a few years ago at Nordstrom. I have been on a search for another pair of jean trousers for awhile. I have been able to find them but not in plus size. Wonder if you’ve seen any?
