Here’s why places like Nordstrom Rack are dangerous… You go into the store trying to find a specific thing like a marked down pair of designer denim, and as you stroll around the store hunting for those Paige skinny jeans, you pass a table full of adorable tops in an array of colors that is topped with a sign boasting “UNDER $30.” You stop in your tracks because obviously you must investigate further. And all of a sudden you find yourself in the check out line with about 5 things under $30 (which no longer seems like you’re saving money at that point) that you didn’t intend on purchasing when you walked in. Well played, Nordstrom Rack. Well played. This is exactly how I ended up with this adorable collared, cold shoulder ruffle top. But you know what? I’m not mad about it because this collared cold shoulder is not only unique, but also so versatile and affordable (hellooo “under $30”!). I mean I know it’s all about the cold shoulder right now, but who has seen one with a collar and ruffles? The neutral color plays nicely with pops of color, the vertical lines are flattering, and it can be worn both in the office and out at events with friends and family. Here I styled a more casual office look with high-rise flare jeans, gray pumps, and fun black and gray tassel earrings. And you can’t forget the punch of plum on my lips. Nordstrom Rack may have gotten me this time, but I think I came out the real winner.
