It was bound to happen. I have a tendency of not being able to keep myself away from Nordstrom for more than a couple weeks. (if I try that is) This has been the case since many years ago, when I started going to graduate school about five blocks away from a Nordstrom. My love affair with the store, and their online counterpart started. (and never ended haha) Well I was there, again, two days ago. Of course, as always, I loved every minute of it.

This is my second Go Shopping with TheBoxQueen edition of 2016, (in the first of 2016 we went to LOFT) of many more to come, and I could not resist my favorite store when I was driving by the other day. Find all the 2015 posts of the series here. Also, please let me know below or in an email if there are any stores you want me to visit to share with you what catches my eye.

Some of the pieces from my Best Picks of Nordstrom January 2016 collage, you’ll see me wear below, styled in the dressing room. Just to refresh your memories, I put together this series, as I think it’s helpful to see items you love on a real person instead of on a hanger. It gives you a better idea of how the pieces fit.

Apart from the pieces you’ll see me wear below, I also love this dress that’s on sale. I actually own one (that you can see in my most recent Stitch Fix Review ), and love the classy midi length, and the knot design detail. I am also crushing on these two shoes; these booties in grey are pretty cool, and these heels in red would be perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond.



BP Cotton Plaid Shirt + Sun & Shadow Distressed High Rise Denim Leggings 

Why is it that every time I see a cute plaid shirt I feel like I have to try it on? This red one was no exception.

These Sun&Shadow distressed leggings  have a higher rise, and I think they are quite flattering. You may know by now that I am also partial to ripped jeans.

Size Tip: If you decide to purchase these denim leggings, be mindful of the sizing. Instead of 25, 26, and on, they go 1, 3 and up. For instance I wear a size 25 in jeans, and the equivalent in these for me was a size 3. On the website there’s sizing info that’ll tell you how to figure out your size in them.


Glamorous Nubby Stitch Pullover Sweater 

This sweater grabbed my attention because it has that laid-back, lived-in, lounge wear feel. It’s the kind of piece that makes me feel casually trendy. Perfect everyday sweater.


Street Level Crossbody Bag 

I loved the tone of the green on this bag, and the size is just right to carry essentials. I also like the chain strap, and the detailing on the top of it.


Mimi Chica Herringbone Vest & Lush Knit Top 

Lately I’ve really been into vests. This herringbone one has a unique fabric that I immediately liked, especially with the distressed leggings.

These Lush Knit Tops are good staple pieces to be worn as layers. They have a looser fit which looks updated, and on trend; worn alone or under a vest, or a jacket.


Sun & Shadow Blanket Cardigan 

After I purchased a couple of their moto leggings this year, I started to really like this brand, and had to try on the fringed open cardigan. The color combo is pretty.


Halogen Sleeveless Cowl Neck Tunic 

This piece screamed my name. I love the contrast of the cowl neck/turtleneck and the sleeveless style. Here you can see the same piece in white. 


Side view of the slits. 


Topshop Hooded Parka with Faux Fur Trim

The cold in the NW made me aware of all the cute parkas, and coats available lately, and this piece is definitely one of them. And look below for the funnest part of the parka.


This gigantic faux fur lined hood that will keep you dry when its showering outside. <3


J.O.A Scuba Trench Coat

Just as I was about to go to the dressing room, I saw this piece of gorgeousness with the side of my eye, and couldn’t not try it. I think it’s such an effortlessly elegant piece. Love it.

      Mica I am known to hoard on blanket cardigans haha and loved the fringe detail on this one. It did come home with me. I already had the jeans (and LOVE them) and I also got the sleeveless cowl neck sweater and the green bag. ( love that tone of green 🙂 Hope you had a fab weekend. XOXO, Elif

  • Amy

    Wow I would love to shop with you! You definitely pick things I never would consider and they turn our beautiful when you pair them other pieces. I did want to tell you about a retailer I really like called Vici Dolls. I followed them on instagram and they finally have online shopping available. Their piper leggings are amazing and in so many colors. They are really affordable and have deals all the time. I just discovered that they had a local store and I love sharing their styles. Their clothes are super cute and made from quality material! I hope you have as much fun browsing their site as me!

  • Sibel Gultekin

    It’s so fun shopping at Nordstrom! It is certain that you’ll find at least a few good picks. The jeans were our favorite.

    • Theboxqueen

      Yes every time I go I can’t leave that store empty handed. 🙂 I’ve already had the jeans, and LOVE them. Higher rise, super flattering and easy to wear. Have a great night girls. XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    I, too, have a love affair with Nordstrom. 🙂 Our nearest one is 45 min away so I shop mostly online, but it is so much fun to shop in store and try on lots of great items at once. Love this series!

    • Theboxqueen

      It really is a shopping love affair with Nordstrom hehe. Although I have more than one each about 15-20 min away, I still LOVE their online shopping. I go to the store for buying kids shoes, to browse to share with you ladies, if I am already at the mall, or sometimes for returns. However I buy a majority of my purchases from the Website.
      SO happy to know you like these series. I remember you had great suggestions for me last year for other stores to visit. Any stores you would like to see featured my dear? XOXO, Elif

      • Cheryl

        Maybe a visit to J.Crew Factory, especially for spring/summer time? You had a fabulous post last year. I just love their items and there are usually such good sales. 🙂
