The brand new collaboration between blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific and Nordstrom exclusive brand Halogen has JUST launched online and in select Nordstrom stores across the U.S. I will admit that I was not a follower of Blair Eadie's blog prior to learning about the pending launch of this collection on Nordstrom's social media. Since learning about it, I've been following the updates closely and have actually found several pieces in this collaboration that I love. Between the apparel, shoes and accessories, there's something for everyone — even the black-wearing souls like me — in this collection. Here are a few of my favorites from the Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific line.
This may be an odd piece to include, but these socks are the perfect subtle accessory to add to your wardrobe. They'll look great under heels or even sneakers to give your look a small dose of fun and glam. It's a similar concept to the fishnet socks that everyone was obsessed with a couple of years ago.
With winter just on the horizon for the Midwest, cold weather accessories are a must. I'm a lover of beanies for headwear in the winter, and it matches so nicely with the leather gloves that are lined with cashmere. These pieces only become more luxurious when topped off with the colorblock faux fur stole that is a fun albeit a little out-there winter accessory.
As I am typing this, pieces are already beginning to sell out. The mint coat is already unavailable in my size and it's listing only one left in size 2. It's an understatement to say that this collection was highly anticipated and that outerwear is the perfect thing to be buying right now. I'm loving both of these coat options from the line. The faux fur is very in right now, especially in that beautiful rust shade, and the long coat is an updated classic in a mint colorway. I wouldn't be surprised if both of these sold out by the end of the day.
Give me suits or give me death. I've been really into suits, matching sets, co-ords, you name it. I love that you can throw the pieces on together for a quick look, mix and match pieces for visual interest or even wear them with your favorite basics in your wardrobe. The blazers would look great with jeans, as shown in the photos, and these wide leg pants would look great with a fitted T-shirt or sweater. These pieces are the ones I'm most excited about in the entire collection.
Sweaters are always at the top of my list for fall and I'm loving these options from the collection. The stripes are a classic but definitely get a fun twist with the purple combo. But you know me, I always have to go for my black and white color palette as well. The middle sweater is a great update on a classic with the tie waist that gives a typically shapeless piece of clothing some life and definition.
These pants are also on track to be best sellers from the collection as well. Both options are already sold out in size 0 and size 2 is almost gone as well, and I can see why. They're the perfect basic black pants that are not only perfect for work but for everyday wear as well. They have fun updates like the gold buttons on the wide leg pants and a ruffle waist on the ankle pair. Get your hands on these while you still can.
According to Eadie, there aren't plans to restock items that sell out, so either get to your nearest Nordstrom store, computer or download the app to get your must-haves from this hotly anticipated collection before they're gone. Or you could hit up my friend MacKenzie Putnal at Trunk Club to get these pieces sent directly to you to try in the comfort of your own home.
