Women's Work Wear with Nordstrom

For many years, Nordstrom has been one of my go-to destinations to shop for pieces from some of my absolute favorite brands.  I love shopping for beautiful dresses, denim, shoes, jewelry, handbags, etc. I've always been able to find exactly what I'm looking for and I've really enjoyed discovering new brands through Nordstrom as well.

Although I shop at Nordstrom often, I typically don't think to shop for work wear.  Maybe it's because I get too distracted and end up buying things that I necessarily didn't plan to shop for.  Let's be honest...that happens to me all of the time!  Anyone else?!  I just can't help myself!

More recently I've starting buying work wear pieces from Nordstrom as's now a one stop shop, which makes my life much easier.  And the fact that I can order online, try on at home, and ship back what doesn't fit, for FREE, really makes this busy working Mom so happy (and less stressed too ;-).

Many of you may (or may not know) that I work full time as a VP in HR for a Fortune 500 company and although I work from a home office, I still attend local meetings, which means that I have to get out of my athletic wear and "get dressed" on occasion.  So for me, picking versatile work wear pieces is important to me.  As a career woman, I've learned over the years that you can look polished, professional, and put-together without having to wear a "power suit".  Those days are over for me...pretty sure my power suits have been retired for some time now.

It's totally okay to dress a bit more modern in the workplace now (assuming you keep it professional and classy).  Many companies have taken on a more business casual approach and have even been implementing more casual days as well.

The pieces I picked for today's work wear look with Nordstrom are modern, classic, versatile, and perfect for work to weekend wear.  Adding a great blazer to complete your outfit instantly elevates your look and makes it more business professional...perfect for meetings with clients or a presentation in the boardroom.  The structured fit and length of this chambray skirt also yields a more office appropriate look.  A classic nude sandal with a moderate heel is also a perfect pick for the office. 

Nordstrom is now my go-to destination for work wear as well!  They have such a broad selection of work wear pieces that are perfect for more modern business casual (or business professional) looks.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...hope your week gets off to a great start!
