winter work outfit mustard pencil skirt lady day coat

Coat: J.Crew lady day coat (size 00p, see full post HERE.) | Skirt: J.Crew pencil skirt (size 00p,slimmed) | Blouse: Loft dot tonal blouse (old, similar  HERE) | Necklace: Faux pearl necklace (similar HERE)

If you’re in need of a classic coat, I would highly recommend J.Crew’s lady day coat.  I have this coat in many colors – it’s THAT good.  The color I’m wearing is from several years ago but there are some great colors this year.  The coat is pricey however 30% off isn’t bad considering how many years you will get out of it.

holiday outfit idea burgundy dress classy work

Dress: c/o ModCloth (size XXS) | Shoes: Ann Taylor (old, love these)

How adorable is this burgundy dress?  I LOVE it and it’s so perfect for the upcoming holidays.  I’m trying on size XXS and sizing runs extremely small.  I could barely breathe and would recommend sizing up if you want to breathe or eat (lol).  I love the length – hits right below the knees.  Perfect for petite gals and requires NO alterations!  I adore the square neckline and textured fabric – so classy.  The only complaints I have is that it’s unlined and has a side zipper.  Other than that, I think it’s adorable and would recommend!

Lou & Gray sweatpants blush tee loungewear errand running outfit

Tee: Madewell (size XXS) | Sweatpants: Lou & Grey (size XXSP) | Sneakers: New Balance 711 mesh sneakers

This is quite possibly the WORST mirror selfie EVER but I didn’t have time to mess with it (hence the wrinkles).  These Lou & Grey sweatpants are OUT OF THIS WORLD.  I have never felt anything so soft!  What kind of cotton is this (lol)?  Sizing runs small and XXSP fits me well.  I regret not buying more pairs to wear at home!  Cute enough to run errands in without looking sloppy.  Love it!

petite friendly riding boots black leggings fall weekend outfit

Sweater: Loft shirttail hem sweater (size XXSP) | Pants: Ann Taylor (size 00p) | Boots: J.Crew riding boots

I had high hopes for these cognac boots but unfortunately they didn’t work out.  The shaft measures about 15.5″ and the circumference is 14″.  Typically I can get away with 14″ circumference but these just seemed extra wide.  Some reviews say the calves are small but I didn’t find this to be true.  The leather is very stiff and almost rubbery.  I’m surprised at the quality since J.Crew is known for their high quality and I’m usually a fan of their shoes.  The ankle area is very wide and as you can see above, it looks really bad.  I like the simple and clean design however without any zippers, it makes it pretty difficult to put on and take off.  Sorry J.Crew, you missed the mark on this one. 🙁
