Happy Monday! It had almost felt like fall was upon us the last couple weeks and I was just starting to be okay with the idea after seeing all the cute Halloween decor at my trip to Marshall's this weekend, but then we had a 100-degree weekend to put me back in full-on summer mode. It's these transitional weeks though when you're not quite ready to buy fall staples yet don't want to pack your closet full of summer items that can be confusing.
This is the reason I love adding basics to my wardrobe that can go from one season to the next. Though one thing I love even more than your average basic? Basics with a twist. This Topshop denim skirt from Nordstrom is just that. It has the classic fit you love from a denim skirt (so glad denim skirts are back by the way - does anyone else remember wearing them in high school with Uggs? 😂) and I love the on-trend touch from the lace-up detail.
The bright white is a great alternative to classic denim and I love the fresh spin it adds for summer yet it will look so cute with cozy neutral sweaters and booties come fall. This is just one of several skirts I've snagged this season and I have to admit—I love how easily they "make" an outfit.
I find that shopping in the Topshop/Trend section of Nordstrom makes it really easy to find classic, yet on-trend pieces with unique details. This embroidered tee is another basic-with-a-twist I love and is one I've paired with everything from this skirt to shorts to black distressed denim and it will be so easy to top with a cardigan or moto jacket come fall. What pieces are you wearing now and into fall?
This skirt seems to be selling out, so I'm linking a few more favorite classic styles with unique details below.
