5 Comfy Fall Outfits for Being at Home With Kids and Working

Huge thanks to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post

I know a lot of you are excitedly planning your fall wardrobes!  Since many of us will continue to spend significant amounts of time at home, I thought I’d share some fall outfit inspiration for at-home life.  I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle to bring you 5 fall comfy outfits for being at home with kids and working, and being on video calls from home!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong, and these outfits are all part of it!  You can get them all on sale until August 30th.  I’m highlighting items from some of my very favorite brands like Caslon, Halogen, BP., and Zella, which are all made by Nordstrom.  They’re full of casual, COMFY, easy-to-wear items that I LOVE!

As a reminder, Nordstrom offers free shipping and free return shipping on all orders, so I freely order items to try and order multiple sizes to get the right fit since I can return them for free.  Also, if you don’t want to wait for shipping, utilize Nordstrom’s curbside pickup.  Order online, then drive up to a store, and someone will bring your order out to your car!  Last, make sure you sign up for the Nordy Club to earn points on all your orders!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/ or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

 

Casual Fall Outfit: white tee + olive cardigan + skinny jeans + leopard wedge sneakers + cognac tote + cognac leather cutout earrings Casual Fall Outfit: olive cardigan + white tee + leopard wedge sneakers + skinny jeans + cognac leather cutout earrings + cognac tote

Solid Tee + Cardigan + Jeans + Leopard Print Sneakers 
This is such an easy, relaxed outfit, perfect for momming it at home!

I started with my favorite white tee by Caslon, which has great drape and flattering rounded v-neck line. It’s somewhat see through, but it has a heather texture that makes it less so.  With a nude/flesh colored bra, I can’t actually see through it once it’s on me.  I wear this in size S.  Comes in several colors HERE.

This cardigan by BP. is my go-to for effortless casual style.  I have previous versions of it in tons of colors that I’ve collected through out the years.  They are perfectly relaxed for being at home, but they also dress up well for elevated casual looks.  This year it’s available in 5 colors, and I LOVE this lighter olive green one!  I’m wearing XS, they run large.  See them HERE.

Then, put a twist on the outfit with leopard print wedge sneakers like these by Caslon!  These are one of my favorite items from this sale!  Not only are they really cute with a chic tan leopard print.  They’re also fairly comfy.  Plus, they’re WATER RESISTANT!  Wedge sneakers are a sportier, more casual option than booties, which is great for at-home life.  These come in a very, very pretty tan as well as black.  See them HERE.  I wear size 9.

Casual Fall Outfit: leopard tee + olive cardigan + black leggings + black slip-on sneakers + cognac tote + cognac leather cutout earrings Casual Fall Outfit: olive cardigan + leopard tee + black slip-on sneakers + black leggings + cognac leather cutout earrings + cognac tote Casual Fall Outfit: leopard tee + olive cardigan + black slip-on sneakers + black leggings + cognac tote + cognac leather cutout earrings

Leggings + Tee + Cardigan
For another great, comfy outfit for at-home life, take the cardigan and tee combo and pair it with leggings and slip-on sneakers.  This is that same white tee from above in a cute leopard print.  You know I’ve been obsessing over this tee since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview, and the white leopard print is spot-on trend for this fall! 😜

You also know I LOVE Zella leggings.  They are so comfy, and they are an AMAZING value during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  My favorite pair that I’ve told you about for years is the Zella Live-In leggings, which have a high, wide waistband to help them stay put and flatten a tummy.  They’re thick, NOT see-through, and matte, so you can wear them for casual outfits as well as for activewear and athleisure.

Here, I’m wearing Zella Studio 7/8 Pocket leggings.  These are thinner and lighter weight than the Zella Live-In leggings, which is great for warmer weather.  They still have the flattering high, wide waistband.  They are also 7/8 length and have POCKETS!  I LOVE that the pockets are higher up and hidden around the hips instead of on the thighs.  That way, they don’t add bulk to my thighs.  The other major difference between Studio and Live-In leggings is this Studio pair is a bit shinier than my Live-In leggings.  They’re both GREAT.  I wear them in size M.

Fall Leggings Outfit: maroon tunic sweater + black quilted vest + black leggings + black hunter boots + grey tote + gold circle pendant necklace + gold leather earrings Fall Leggings Outfit: black quilted vest + maroon tunic sweater + black hunter boots + black leggings + gold leather earrings + grey tote + gold circle pendant necklace

Leggings + Tunic Sweater
Here’s a comfy, cozy look with the full length Zella Live-In leggings I mentioned earlier!

This Caslon tunic sweater is a PMT fave from last winter.  PMTers LOVED this!  It’s cozy but pretty lightweight and comfy to wear.  It’s a great length for leggings, but also looks good with jeans.  

Here, I styled it in a sporty look with Zella Live-In leggings and rain boots.  You can also dress it up with a statement necklace for a comfy outfit to work from home in for video calls.  And, if you want to get fancy, pair it with faux leather leggings and tall suede boots!  It’s a really versatile sweater!

It comes in several colors HERE.  It runs huge, so size down.  I wear size XS and it’s got plenty of room!

Sweater: c/o Nordstrom (exact-wearing size XS)
Leggings: c/o Nordstrom (exact-wearing size M)

Casual Fall Outfit: blue sweater + skinny jeans + leopard mules + cognac tote + gold circle pendant necklace + gold leather earringsCasual Fall Outfit: skinny jeans + blue sweater + cognac tote + leopard mules + gold leather earrings + gold circle pendant necklace

Jeans + Pullover Sweater
If you need to dress up a little for video calls while working from home, this Halogen sweater is a great option!  It’s got slightly gathered shoulders which adds a CUTE detail and elevates it from a basic sweater.  It’s lighter weight and great for the fall transition or warmer falls.  Also, the fit is great!  Honestly, I adore this sweater!

I recently showed it with black slacks in my post about Fall Staples, but you can dress it down with comfy jeans to be more relaxed while working from home.  Pair the sweater with a statement necklace to really polish up your look while on video calls.  It comes in 5 colors HERE.  I wear size S.

Comfy Knit Blazer + Striped Tee + Jeans
Last is the PMT fave Caslon knit blazer with a striped tee by Halogen.  This is the blazer that feels like a sweatshirt!  If you haven’t gotten it, it’s a great piece to have while working from home because it’s COMFYOn video calls, you can look sharp in a blazer with the comfort of a sweatshirt!

This Halogen striped tee is sooooo soft and stretchy.  But, it’s pretty fitted which is better for some body types than others.  Just a heads up.  It’s VERY comfy though, so check it out if you don’t mind fitted tops!
