December Drop: 6 Pieces You Need Now!

Boot trend: AirEssentials pullover | Leggings | Loci sneakers | Briggs & Riley luggage | YSL tote

The Winter boot trend that makes the coolest outfits!

When it comes to building your winter wardrobe, there is one category that is very important for completing your outfits: Boots! Since winter is just around the corner, many of us are pulling out our warm weather coats, chunky sweaters, and of course, boots. Several weeks ago, I popped into our local Nordstrom store and was surprised to see a Sorel boot shop in the middle of the shoe department. At the time, I didn’t pay much attention — other than noting a few different styles. Fast forward to now, with temperatures dropping across the country, this boot trend is not only practical but is trending hard. So … let’s investigate!

Right now, I have my eye on Chelsea boots and chunky all-weather styles like Sorel. They add a little edge to every outfit, and they’re also quite comfortable. And, you can find them at all price points. A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a this Dolce Vita style, which I shared on my instagram during an IG live (watch it here). The best part? They’re stylish, but also very wearable!

This week, my Nordstrom Stylist friends and I announced our December “N6 Drop” (a monthly drop of six of our favorite, best-selling items). We selected a cozy puffer jacket, a Burberry classic scarf, a Weekender bag, and the chunky Chelsea boots that I’ve been talking about. So, today’s post is about making good, solid everyday outfits for winter, and the essentials that make it all work. They’re super simple and easy to style, and I’m sure you’ll love them 😊

Lightweight puffers

Everyone needs a lightweight puffer … unless you live in Florida 😂 Several years ago, I splurged on this Moncler, and I’m not joking when I say it might be the most worn piece in my closet from November to May. They’re so good, you can try a different style and stay warm while looking cool!

Matching sets

Matching sets are trending at the moment, and if you stick to one neutral color like all cream, all camel or all black, you’ll have endless outfit options. I absolutely love these Varley sets below, and Spanx AirEssentials are also among the best. I’m telling you — you’ll wear them ALL the time!

For other matching set options, look at the Spanx 1/2 zip, and the crew style with this wide-leg pant — so good!


Hoop earrings

Hoop earrings are a classic style everyone should own! So, get a pair and give a pair 😉


Burberry scarf

A classic Burberry scarf is one you’ll have for years to come. As always, it elevates every outfit, and the colors are sophisticated.


Weekender bag

This best-selling Weekender bag has gone with me on every trip this past year. Now, I’m considering the smaller size since it’s a little easier to store under your airplane seat.


Weatherproof boots

Talk about practical! These boots are trending AND they’re super comfy!
