I’m very excited and honored to be partnering with Nordstrom again to bring all of you 2 must-have summer tops both under $80, paired with my favorite pair of jeans!
First off, let me start by saying that a good white tee is a definite wardrobe staple. I buy at least one new white tee every season and this one is my absolute favorite! It’s super soft and comfortable and looks good tucked in like I have done in today’s post, but also looks super cute the way the model is wearing it, untucked. This tee is definitely not your average white tee, the cold shoulder style is so on trend and I love the knot detailing at the bottom. This tee looks amazingly chic by itself, but is also the perfect layering tee to wear under your favorite blazer or moto jacket. The best part about this fabulous tee, IT’S ONLY $29, for that price you should get all 3 colors! It also comes in black and gray which I love too! This versatile tee will be a great addition to any wardrobe, that I know for sure!

Second, my tie front striped top is another one of my favorite summer tops from Nordstrom. It’s so effortless, chic and very versatile, it’s my go-to top to throw on when I’m not sure what I want to wear. It looks amazing paired with high-waisted denim, but also pairs well with some high-waisted cut-offs and some fun wedges. In fact, I just purchased these amazing high-waisted cut-offs from Nordstrom that I literally wear all the time! I love the tie front detail and I never met a striped top I didn’t like! This top is wrinkle free, runs true to size (I’m wearing an XS), and very reasonably priced, only $78 for this amazingly chic top making is a definite summer staple!
My jeans are by Citizens of Humanity and I finally found the exact pair on line at Nordstrom fully stocked, I’m so happy you all can buy them now if you love them as much as I do! They’re high-rise so they make your legs appear longer and slimmer, always a plus, and the distressing is so perfect! The wash is extremely versatile so these jeans can easily be worn year round which makes them a great investment! I love the un even raw edge hem, so on trend, and it allows you to show off your favorite heel of the moment! These distressed jeans are one of my top 3 favorites hanging in my closet, I wear them a ton! They run true to size, I’m wearing a 25.
I dressed both looks up by pairing them with my favorite block heels by Steve Madden. These are so good you’ll want them in more than one color, they actually come in 12 colors, and for under $100 you won’t even feel guilty! You can view another post I did in these exact heels by clicking here.
Add a chic and edgy handbag to either of these ensembles and you’ve just elevated both looks even more! I’m so obsessed with fabulous handbag, I just love the silver hardware and the size is perfect, not too big that it over whelms me, but certainly big enough to hold all of my personal essentials. This handbag also comes white which I love too! You can view another post I did in the white version of this chic handbag by clicking here. I highly recommend adding at least one of these edgy handbags to your wardrobe, the perfect accessory to bring any look to the next level!
I also added my Gucci belt to dress up look 1 even more, I literally wear this belt all the time, it’s that good! Nordstrom has just stocked another Gucci belt similar to mine that’s actually reversible which I love even more! One side is black and one side is chocolate brown with the incredibly chic gold GG’s, a definite must have accessory that you’ll find yourself wearing all the time!
Finally, adding a necklace to any look will always make you look more polished and put together. I’m a huge fan of chokers and they’re here to stay for fall too, yay! This silver fringe choker is another amazing accessory I got at Nordstrom and literally wear all the time, it matches everything and isn’t so big and over whelming that it takes away from my look, it simply adds that perfect finishing touch!
The next time you throw on a simple tee and jeans try throwing on some of these fabulous accessories and heels to dress it up a bit, you’ll definitely be turning heads!
A special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
