I’m sharing something a bit different today!  I love hearing from my readers about content they are interested in.  Several times lately, I’ve gotten the request to help find styles that help you look pulled together but still relaxed and casual.  I’ve partnered with Nordstrom today to share two great looks for cozy, casual style.

As much as I love a beautiful dress and a great jeans look, I am pretty casual on a day-to-day basis.  The beauty of working form home!  I do try to “get dressed” every day though and these are looks that I’m drawn to right now.  Cozy and comfortable!

You know I love a good cashmere sweaterThis one is amazingly soft and great quality.  I also wear this sweater with a front tuck and my favorite denim as well.

I’ve shown it here with THE BEST faux leather leggings.  They are high waisted and super slimming.  This pair doesn’t have a waistband so here are almost no seams which makes them very comfortable.

These cute silver sneakers might be my new favorites!  Yes, I’ll always love these and these but for a casual look, these silver beauties all the way.  I’ve gotten stopped several times this week and asked about them!  Even my teen girls thought they were cool.  Bonus, right!?!  Throw on a great pair of boots and you have instantly dressed up this look.

The second look is this incredibly soft hoodie cardigan.  I wore it again this week and was asked for the link to purchase it on the spot by several friends!  It feels like wearing my favorite robe.  I’ve paired it with this light weight turtleneck tshirt and the same faux leather leggings and silver Adidas.

The boutique below has more cozy, casual style pieces that I love as well.  These looks and any of the styles below would be a great gifts, too! Nordstrom is a fabulous place to shop for everyone on your list and you’ll find many items featured in all of my gift guides.

One of my favorite things about shopping at Nordstrom is their a Buy Online, Pick Up In Store option. This service is priceless!  I use it year round!  Also don’t forget to register and receive your Nordstrom loyalty points. You can find all the details here.

You can check out my Gift Guides below as well as a post on Special Men’s Gifts here.  I have more Gift Guides coming this week so be sure to subscribe to my newsletter.

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
