Happy Tuesday ladies. Today I’m bringing you a cold-weather outfit because it’s coat weather in so many places. I’m also sharing some sustainable fashion from Nordstrom because it’s plentiful and much of it is on sale.
This post is sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective. Thanks for supporting the brands that support AWSL.
My Softly Glam Puffer coat arrived from Nordstrom and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it because it’s comfy and gorgeous. At a time when we’re all thinking of ways to be more thoughtful with our purchases and support sustainable practices, this coat ticks all the boxes. The plus-size version is here.
Bernardo is committed to upholding the global Responsible Down Standard, ensuring that all its down-filled coats are created with feathers from birds that have been humanely treated. This coat goes one step further because it’s filled with cruelty-free insulation that’s made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. You know how much I love that! That also makes it hypoallergenic. I also love this brand because they make their coats in plus size up to 3X. It’s important to support brands that recognize women come in all shapes and sizes.
It comes in three gorgeous shades. I ordered the small which fit but ended up exchanging it for the medium so I can layer it over warm sweaters…although I don’t think I’ll need to. This Eco Plume Walker coat was in close contention for me too because the color is so fabulous! The outer shell has a water-resistant treatment to protect it from the elements too.
This inner vest-looking section is a removable zip bib you could use for an extra layer of warmth or open the outer zipper as you warm up. You can also just unzip and remove those vest panels.
The smocked side panels and chevron quilting are nothing short of art on this coat and are very slimming. Puffer coats can make you look like a hot air balloon if they’re not designed well, and this one is.
If a full coat is too much for you, Bernardo makes lots of vests, both long and short. The quilting pattern on the back of this vest caught my eye.
I don’t need a coat this warm in my local environment too often but we have trips to Tahoe planned this winter and of course, I’ll be heading back to Canada to see my daughter and brothers so this coat will be perfect because it crushes down easily and packs into a tiny pouch for travel.
Nordstrom carries a large selection of Bernardo Coats here, many marked down and would make a great gift.
As I move towards dark neutrals other than black, I’m finding chocolate brown a great option. These Joss Knit Booties are made from leather and a stretch knit that’s made from recycled fibers. The top section stretches so they don’t pinch anywhere and the block heel is stable. I also like this Aesop Bootie with a lower heel, which is similar to this Clever Knit Bootie I have in charcoal and wore this past weekend. I’m pleased as punch to have discovered these knit flats and booties!
My Slim Ankle Pants are also not black and a happy new addition to my growing collection of these amazing pants! I have 3 pairs in black, one navy, one ivory, and now this Espresso. They machine wash and dry, wear like iron, travel like a dream, and are the perfect pant to replace leggings for a stepped-up, comfortable look. I also have my eye on the Barley color because it’s such a versatile neutral.
This time of year, Nordstrom has some of the best gifts for everyone on your list at great prices. I always think of Nordstrom as my favorite gifting destination, and if I’m out of ideas, I give a holiday gift card! You can find lots more sustainable options here.
Let’s face it, online shopping has challenges which is one of the reasons I love shopping at Nordstrom. They offer free shipping and returns every day which allows me to order several sizes, decide what fits best then return what doesn’t fit, at no cost to me. Joining the Nordy club here is free and allows you to earn points towards notes you can use to shop plus you get free basic alterations. They also offer BOPUS, ROTUS (reserve online, try on in-store), and curbside pickup.
Do you shop for sustainable fashions?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
