How To Style Black Jeans For Fall

This color combo has been on heavy rotation for fall.  If you missed out on my cashmere long drape front cardigan from last year, this camel pocket cardigan is a close second!  Super soft and available in regular and petite sizes.  I FINALLY found a pair of black jeans that fit perfectly.  No alterations required and the inseam is great for petite gals – no cuffing needed.

When you start to know your delivery guys name including the names of their kids…you start to wonder if you have a shopping problem.  Yes I shop online A LOT.  Waiting for packages to arrive can be nail biting especially if I need that item right away.  One of my favorite services Nordstrom offers is their buy online and pick up in store option.

Have you tried this service yet?  I’ve done it countless times and it’s such a great feeling being able to get your item right away without having to wait a couple of weeks.  I can basically shop in the comfort of my own home and go pick up my item without even having to get out of my car!  No standing in line or rummage through racks.  Saves so much time and energy.  Lord knows I have neither these days (lol).

Wondering how it works?  So easy.  If you see an item you like, there is an option under ‘add to wish list’ that will let you know if it’s available for pick up.  You can check surrounding locations if your local store doesn’t pop up. See the red arrow below:

After checking out and completing your order, you’ll get an email (within 2 hours) to let you know that your order is ready to be picked up.  Make sure to bring a photo ID and the card you used, stop by the store and pick up your item.  Don’t want to get out of your car?  Call the store 10 minutes before your arrival and they will bring it out to you!  Make sure to ask where the curbside pick up point is (not all stores have this).

Let’s get back to this outfit.  I have way too many cardigans yet I could NOT say no to this camel one!  The material is SO soft.  Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing XXSP.

Black jeans.  Everyone needs at least one pair.  I never thought finding a pair would be so difficult but the struggle is real.  I have several pairs that are decent but none that I truly love.  These Topshop petite Jamie ankle skinny jeans are the first non-distressed pair that fit like a glove.  The inseam is 24.5″ and requires no cuffing.  I don’t mind the look of cuffed jeans however it’s always a bonus when you don’t have to.  Sizing runs very small so I’d recommend sizing up if you’ve never tried this brand before.  I’m wearing size 24×28 and it runs smaller than a 24P/00p in U.S brands.

How cute is this plaid scarf?  If you like wearing scarves but have difficulty figuring out how to tie them, this one is already cut into a triangle so all you have to do is drape across your chest and pull the two ends in the front.  That’s it!  It’s not bulky and priced under $25!

  1. Been in the Uk, the topshop jeans are a favourite and fit really well. I usually go for the standard rather than petite and they require no cuffing. I am 5ft with a 27 inch inseam. Topshop sizing tends to be small in comparison with U.S brands but something we are used to over here. I am just getting the hang of U.S sizing as a U.S 2 is definitely not equivalent to a UK 6, it is much larger, even a 0p is bigger than a 6 and generally I wear a 00p or 24 in jeans.

    • I love how they fit and the petite jeans seem to work better for me however I do have a couple pairs that are the regular size and fit nicely too – still have to cuff those up…

  2. I bought these leopard print pumps and am so in love with them! I created a similar look to this and paired them with some leather pants from anthro…love your blog, thanks for the style inspiration!

  3. Super cute and chic! Looking fashionable and comfy at the same time! ❤️❤️❤️????????
