How to Dress Up Jeans

Tremendous thanks to Nordstrom and Shopstyle Collective for sponsoring this post.

Happy hump day! Since I work from home, my dress code is casual, but I love to dress up jeans when I’m going somewhere, and CeCe brand tops and sweaters at Nordstrom are an easy way to dress them up.

CeCe brand is a mixture of femininity, elegance, and a bit of whimsy. They make going from my at-home office to an upscale dinner seamless.

How to Dress Up Jeans

First, I’m wearing a mock-neck pullover sweater with semi-sheer clip-dot sleeves. I paired the sweater with Wit & Wisdom straight-leg jeans in a dark wash. Dark wash jeans have a little dressier feel, and these Wit & Wisdom jeans have a raw finish hemline.

I love this semi-sheer sleeve on this sweater.

I paired my outfit with black heels, but I can always add a black bootie if the weather is cold.

This sweater comes in several colors and will also look great with dress pants.

Next, I’m wearing a ruffle v-neck trim sweater with nude heels.

This sweater also comes in several colors, but I love the Pink Horizon color that I’m wearing. Such a pretty pastel pink.

The sweater has ruffle around the neckline with pearl buttons.

It’s easy to dress up dark denim with CeCe brand tops and sweaters!

If you’re looking for stocking stuffers and last-minute gifts, you can still buy them online and pick them up in-store. As always, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, which makes shopping a breeze!

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart™The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8

Truth: Life can be hard, and circumstances can be difficult. God tells us that we need not despair. God is with us and goes ahead of us. Not only is He with us, but He comforts us no matter what we face. Nothing can take him by surprise or catch him off guard; what good news to know that God will never abandon us.

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!

  2. I LOVE your blog. Especially that it includes beauty for the heart. We live in Pa and also have an RV. We’ll be in St. Lucie Jan – March. Enjoy Key West. We like Bluewater Key resort.
    Wish you could stop by and see us on the way down!

  3. Love these outfits. I love Wit and Wisdom jeans. Going to order these. I’ve been looking for a darker pair in this brand and alittle more updated from skinny, but not too wide. Enjoy your family. Do you buy gifts for your whole family? We stopped that years ago. We all just buy for our inmmediate families as our bigger family is just too big.

  4. Love these sweaters, especially the pink one!
    Looks like we are in for some nasty weather for Christmas! Stay warm and safe, Cyndi! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  5. Decided to also order the black sweater. I just love it and after placing the order for the jeans, I decided to treat myself to the sweater too. I think its a nice classic fit to have in my closet for church and other occasions. Thanks. So cute.

  6. I love CeCe brand. I have purchased several of their items in the past few months. The quality of the fabric is really nice-hard to find anymore. Everything has fit perfectly which is also amazing. The details just elevate their tops a bit, making them my favorite for going out. I also purchased one of their pleated skirts and get compliments every time I wear it.

  7. Love the pink sweater, just added to my Nordstrom wish list. Also your tree looks so pretty, I’d love to see all your Christmas decor. Finally, thank you for today’s “beauty for the heart”. That is one of my favorite verses, and one I definitely needed to hear today.

  8. Amen to your beauty from the heart today, I needed to hear that! Although I know it, it’s always good to be reminded of it! Merry Christmas!!

  9. I love your post on Instagram and your daily blog. I don’t often comment but I enjoy reading them very much. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and may 2023 bring health happiness joy & peace and safety.
