Moto Utility Vest & Distressed Denim

The fall season is hands down my favorite time of the year. Unfortunately, it doesn’t start to really cool down in Phoenix until late October or early November which means I have to get creative when it comes to getting dressed. I love when I find light layers to wear like this utility vest from Nordstrom. The moto style of the utility vest is so unique and I love that it gives it a little edge. I layered the vest over a long-sleeve striped tee, which has quickly become a staple item in my closet. The long-sleeve tee also comes in a solid version and is available in six colors here.

I paired the utility vest and striped tee over my absolute favorite pair of jeans from Nordstrom. I can’t believe that they’re only $64 because they’re so comfy and flattering and they look nicer than some of the designer jeans that I own. They have the perfect amount of distressing and I love the darker denim wash for fall.

Aside from loving Nordstrom’s selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories, it’s one of my favorite places to shop thanks to their amazing customer service. Nordstrom offers free standard shipping on all orders and free returns. I love being able to shop from the comfort of my own home without having to worry about paying shipping and return fees if an item doesn’t work out.

Thanks for stopping by!
