I often ask what type of content you guys like to see as I want to be helpful as I can with my blog posts. Inspired by readers’ requests, today’s post will be highlighting versatile wardrobe pieces from Nordstrom that you can wear to work and then transition to other occasions such as for running errands and for date night.

Nordstrom really has pieces for every occasion which I why I used their site to source content to answer other recent reader requests including:

Joggers You Can Dress Up for Work

The first two outfits I will show you how can wear the cami and joggers as a work appropriate outfit and then dressed down as a casual everyday outfit.

These Gibson joggers are AHHHHMAZING! They feel like sweatpants but they look so chic.  I love how they style for the office but they’re also easy to dress down for running errands or catching lunch with a friend. 

The lace trim cami is a great staple that wears well over different seasons. It features adjustable straps if you want to make it more or less low cut.  It comes in other colors including an awesome leopard print that I love!

I originally had this black blazer in white and loved it so much I grabbed the black.. It is so well-cut that it looks as if it was specially tailored. I wear this type of blazer out to dinner with a satin or lace cami all the time. Unfortunately, it’s currently sold out, but I wanted to link it because I’ve seen it restock several times. Here is a similar blazer from the same brand.

My Sam Edelman nude heels are my go-to work heels. I switched from the patent leather (that has gradually scuffed to the point of no return) to the nude leather which I think will wear better. They are true to size and so comfortable.  I got this exact pair because I have the black version and it’s held up well for over 2 years of wear.

My everyday reversible tote is a practical option for work as it’s spacious enough to hold most laptops and also things like your wallet, planner, etc. It comes in a black/cognac option that would look good with this outfit as well.

Joggers You Can Dress Down for Running Errands

Here is the same cami and black joggers styled as an everyday casual outfit. If you’re coming out of the office straight to running errands, it is so easy to swap out the blazer with the denim jacket and heels for sneakers.

The denim jacket is well cut and has a lot of stretch.  It’s a great staple if you are looking for a darker wash denim jacket.  I love Sanctuary brand clothes. Each season they seem to cover all my favorite trends tastefully.

The Blazer You Can Wear to Work or for Date Night

The last outfit is featuring the same cami that I wore in all three looks and the work appropriate blazer that can be transitioned for date night.

So many followers recommended I get on board with Madewell jeans. The button fly trend remains popular so I grabbed this pair. Based on reviews, I sized down one and I love these! Very flattering and perfect for date night.

These clear heels are my FAVORITE! I sized up a full size. Steve Madden makes a very similar pair and you can find them here.

You probably would have thought that my leopard clutch was just any other clutch, but it’s actually a diaper bag!! I loved the quilted look and that it’s washable.  While I’m not going to use the changing pad it comes with, I love that it’s a stylish options for mamas with kids in diapers.
