Early Fall Date Night and Sustainable Style with Nordstrom

Black Ruffle Trim Maxi Dress / Cult Gaia Ark Bag / Black Sandals

Happy Monday! I can’t believe that school has started for all of my girls including the one we successfully moved to college in California last week and starts classes today! Back to school is never my favorite time of year because I love a lazy morning.

One thing I do appreciate about getting back on a regular schedule is having a consistent date night!  For us, a date night is a way to synch up on the week behind us and the week ahead.  A time to plan for upcoming family travel and dream build for the future.

Nordstrom is my first stop for a date night look. Whether I am looking for a classic LBD, the perfect jeans and a great top or fun accessories, Nordstrom always has what I’m looking for for any occasion.

My favorite way to shop is Nordstrom‘s fabulous service of Buy Online, Pick Up In Store. I love the staff at our local Nordstrom and how nice they always are when I pick up curbside before or after carpool.  You know I’m all about efficient and easy!

I chose this darling black maxi dress for fall as the heat lingers here in Texas well into early October. I know I will wear it a lot including date night soon!  I love the tiny ruffle detail and triple tier skirt.

Something I’ve been paying a lot of attention to recently is sustainable style. You know I’m a big believer in Clean Beauty so paying attention to what I wear is the next right step.  Nordstrom has a great selection of fashion created by companies that want to be a force for change. These include companies who use sustainably sourced materials, responsible manufacturing and companies that give back to the community. 

One of my favorite brands for sustainable style is Reformation, the designer of this perfect black maxi dress. Reformation’s designs are always modern and feminine which is how I would define my style. I’ve gathered my favorite date night looks and sustainable style pieces in the boutique below.  Here’s to a new week and new routines…and regular date nights!

    I have focused this year on making wardrobe change to be more inline with my lifestyle (approaching retirement and enjoying more social outings with friends), I also find myself gravitating to sustainable options when it comes to clothing. First and foremost I am trying the philosophy less is more-I don’t need so many things! But when I do make a purchase, I am looking more at brands like Reformation. They have great options for all ages and I like their fit and style. I am also paying attention to brands who are working to make sure their factories are following ethical guidelines when it comes to their employees. I also look for products that support 3rd world initiatives to bring work to their citizens. One great option for apparel as well as home goods is Ten Thousand Villages. We all need to remember we are a ‘global’ community now!

    Such a cute black dress! It will be darling to throw on a jacket, sweater or wrap as it gets cooler. I am all about things I can wear now and into the fall. Thanks for your inspiration!

    I am a fellow Texan just about an hour north of Dallas!(Decatur) so I am feeling the heat! The black dress is adorable 👍 I am a 65 year old retired teacher and just celebrated 47 years with my junior high/high school sweetheart and I can tell you date nights are so important!

    I am really liking all the utility jackets. They are so versatile and I didn’t think they would ever come back in style. Thanks for keeping us up to date.

    What a stunning dress to wear on your upcoming date night.date nights are important for all couples, but I believe even more so for working couples. It’s so easy to become involved in work and school activities that couple time can take a back seat. As always you are prepared and look beautiful.

My Style

A fresh approach to classic style.
