Happy Monday Everyone!
This week I have for you a special ‘Outfit of the Day’ type post fused with a review!
For those of you who might not know, Something Navy (AKA Arielle), has been my favorite (and first) fashion blogger for the past 5 or so years. I stumbled on her instagram page when I was in an 11th grade psychology class, and I’ve been hooked ever since. So if there is anyone reading this right now, I would 10/10 recommend checking her out as she has such great personal style, a kind heart, and a totally cute kid (seriously, the daily dose of Ruby is much appreciated)!
But anyways, Arielle recently collaborated with Nordstrom and Treasure & Bond and released an entire line of clothing! Not only are the clothes REALLY cute, but they’re also really affordable as well, which of course my wallet always appreciates.
Leading up to the release, Arielle had been dropping little sneak peeks and I knew there were a few items that I just had to have. Unfortunately, I was unable to get my hands on the orange sweater, but considering that I was able to track down everything else, I would consider it a win-win.
And yes, you read that right. I literally had to TRACK DOWN most of these items. There was a technical issue on Nordstrom’s end the day of the release, and by the time I realized the items were online, like 98% of them were sold out. So naturally, I called practically every Nordstrom on the west coast that I could find until I found one with the item and size that I needed. This was probably like a two hour affair at least, so that’s what I would like to call dedication (:
So anyways, I wanted to show off the items that I managed to snag! The first one was the ‘Wrap Cardigan’. This is something I knew I needed in my life. She posted a picture of her wearing it the night before the released and I about had a heart attack. It’s so cute and unique, and I truly fell in love at first sight.
I love that it has a deep V neckline, and that the fabric is so soft and that this piece will really easily transition into fall and winter months! My only regret is that I didn’t have the belt that Arielle wore when styling this cardigan, because that combo was amazing together.
If you can’t tell, I really loved this cardigan. The only thing that I will warn is that if you can still get your hands on it, SIZE DOWN! This is something I didn’t realize to do, and the XS ended up being a little big so I had to go with the XXS (yeah, I don’t think I’ve ever been that size).
Pairing this with a black pair of skinny jeans and a pair of simple heels really made me feel like I was on top of the world. Love, love, LOVE this outfit (:
Next up is a kind of 2-in-1 deal. First on the list is the ‘Ruffle Cuff Tunic’ in the blue color. I didn’t realize when buying this that ‘tunic’ was in the name, so when I saw it in person I was kind of surprised at how long it was, but now.. it totally makes sense.
This is just another super unique piece. I LOVE simple button downs and the fact that this one just had something a little extra going on with the sleeves, made me gravitate to it even more. I mean the detailing is so subtle and delicate that it’s hard NOT to want to buy like 30 of these.
Here, I tried to tuck it in and for the most part it worked, but like I said earlier, SIZE DOWN!! I have an XS in this, and I definitely think that the XXS would have again been a better fit. Unless of course you’re into the oversized look, then go with your normal sizing (:
And finally, the last piece I got are the ‘Kaine Strappy Mule’ in the silver faux leather. Honestly? I think these are my favorite. I don’t have a single pair of shoes like this, and I love that they are giving me edgy but also sophisticated at the same time.
Like in a weird way, I can totally picture Harry Styles coming out in a pair of these (actually, maybe if they were boots it’d be more likely.. but you catch my drift).
I wear so much black that I know these will spice up my wardrobe and probably be a total conversation started. Not to mention, that they are actually super comfortable and fit like a glove. For these? DON’T size down, they fit perfect (:
As for the rest of the collection? I loved it all. If I was a millionaire I would have every single piece but I just wanted to showcase some of it and really tell all y’all just how great the collection truly is. If you can still get any piece, I would encourage it as they’re all timeless, effortless, and super stylish.
The handwork that Arielle put into the collection really paid off and I couldn’t be more proud! Either way, I hope you all enjoyed this short little review/OOTD and got some fall inspiration for your wardrobe! But..
Until next time,
