This top from Caslon has a wonderful mix of looking stylish yet cozy too, and it’s only $50 at Nordstrom. I love the thumb holes and the cozy-looking shawl collar that hides a foldaway hood, which is nice as the weather changes. It has 4% spandex for a bit of stretch, and it’s machine wash, dry flat. Off Duty Drapey Slub Knit Top

(If you’ve admired this slinky DVF sweater over the years, this much more affordable sweater is very reminiscent of it.)

For plus sizes, try this top from Gibson or this one from Foxcroft, both at Nordstrom.

I always think of Leith as a juniors line, almost — I think just because it’s super affordable. But a woman I know was swearing up and down that their clothes fit her really well (and she’s older than I am), so I thought this was an interesting find if you’re on the hunt for a slinky but easy and affordable tank dress. It also comes in a long-sleeved version. They’ve styled it with heels, and I think it’d look great with flat boots and maybe a cozy sweater as well — but that’s me. It would also be a good date option. The pictured dress is $56 at Nordstrom and comes in 17 (!) colors; the long-sleeved one is $59. There’s a plus-size version as well, but it only offers two colors, pink and coral. Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress

It’s getting chilly but it may still be a little rainy — which to me means that my skinny cords still have a place in my wardrobe, no matter how much flared cords are in right now. (There are a ton of cute cord miniskirts, too, if that’s your thing!) Happily, skinny cords are still plentiful in stores right now — these gorgeous hot fuchsia ones from Current/Elliott are on sale for $177, but there are lots of other options, including these old affordable favorites from Kut from the Kloth (at Nordstrom, as well as sale styles at Amazon), as well as a ton at Banana Republic (and BR Factory), J.Crew (40% off!) and some nice plus-size options at Nordstrom Rack.

Knee-high boots have been out of style for a few years now — if you listen to the fashion people — so it’s interesting to see that knee-high scrunch boots, which seem very ’80s to me, seem to be coming back this fall. I’m looking for a beige or tan pair for this time of year, and I think they’d look great with bare legs for weekend looks (and for workwear looks — but know your office). These boots from Splendid are available in black, greystone, and oat in sizes 6–10 for $228 at Zappos and NordstromSplendid Clayton

Here are similar options in two waterproof boots, as well as an OTK suede light beige version from Marc Fisher or this block-heel version from Via Spiga.

I’ve mentioned before that I like doing lifting programs. I’ve got a new routine I really like and I just wanted to give a shoutout to these dumbbells from Bowflex, which I’ve had for one or two years. Each one adjusts from 5 to 52.5 lbs., and it’s easy to change them. If you’re gaining strength, it’s great to be able to increase the weight in small increments — 2.5 lbs. at a time for the first 25 lbs. They are a little pricey at $299 (eligible for Prime), but they replace a set of dumbbells, so if you think they would be useful for you I would definitely give them a try. Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells

This highly rated, much loved strappy camisole is on sale at Nordstrom, and looks like it would be great for date nights. The straps on the camisole are embroidered, I like the pleating in the front and back as a way to give you a sort of relaxed, comfortable vibe. It’s available in four colors and lucky sizes, and it’s marked from $69 down to $41. It’s also available in really lucky sizes and colors at Macy’s, Lord & Taylor’s, and Zappos. Happy weekend!
