One of my all-time favorite bloggers debuted her first capsule collection this past week, and from the moment she announced it, I could not wait to catch a first glimpse of her pieces!

Blair Eadie, the beautiful face with red lipstick and the creative mind behind the impeccably curated blog Atlantic//Pacific, collaborated with Halogen and Nordstrom to dream up a classy, feminine, playful collection with plenty of quirky-cool and tailored-to-perfection pieces.

This is probably the sweetest, most highly anticipated blogger collab I’ve ever been so excited about buying!

I set an alarm on my calendar and my phone to remind me 15 minutes before the collection dropped on Nordstrom at 9am on Monday morning – sigh, shouldn’t all Monday mornings be this exhilarating? I geared up with my delicious soy honey coffee in one hand and iPad in the other – ready to purchase the pieces I had my eyes on!

They, of course, sold out within minutes. I couldn’t get my hands on that beautiful pink belt! However, I did manage to get three of my favorite pieces:

  1. Balloon Sleeve Wool & Cashmere Sweater, in Ivory Pristine
  2. Tulle Midi Skirt
  3. And a little present for my Mom, who looks insanely elegant in classic stripes: Stripe Turtleneck Sweater, in Black/Ivory Stripe

My favorite item, so far, has been the balloon sleeve sweater – it is soft, plush, and matches with everything in my closet!

Playing around with the tulle skirt, I realized that, although I am quite girly and love a kitten or block heel for special occasions, for everyday wear, I can’t resist comfortable footwear, maybe it’s an island girl thing? Barefoot is choice number one, followed by a great walking shoe – that doesn’t hurt my feet! Allbirds have been my go-to pick because I find they are stylish enough to match with almost everything! This color has been my top choice, but it also comes in a variety of other hues!

How will you style your pieces from Blair’s new collection? Whatever you choose, be sure to head over to her blog: Atlantic//Pacific and show her some love!
