Tartan scarf + red Hunter tour boots

holiday outfit petite fashion scarf sweater
Lord & Taylor scarf ("ivory" - extra 20% off w/ VETSDAY)
  Bobeau cardigan in xsp, Ann Taylor cashmere (current year's version)
Hunter packable Tour boots sz 5 (also at Zappos in 5 colors), Jolt jeans sz 00

This comfy outfit from last weekend remixes several of my older favorite pieces. I also learned my lesson to always check the weather before embarking on a long day of errands wearing rubber boots - it was damp and gloomy when we left the house, but turned out to be the most beautiful day without a drop of rain! Ended up feeling a little silly in these all day but on the plus side, the bright color kickstarted my holiday spirit early this year (along with the red cups debut & tree lights going up in Boston on the same day!).

Speaking of rainboots, I've been getting tons of clarifying questions this month about my Hunters so wanted to link back to my past detailed review of their adult Tour vs kids boots. Over the years I've tried on dozens of rubber rainboot options and the Tour are hands-down my favorite for style, fit, and comfort. Their adult original (sold at Costco now, apparently!) were not comfortable for my shorter legs, and I haven't gone back to my kids ones in a long time because these are much more lightweight, pliable, and more visually lengthening in my opinion. I walk miles in them around the city and haven't had any quality issues yet, fingers crossed! Out of the two red Tour options now mine are the "military" red.

Madewell mini transport tote (3 colors) - can do a detailed review if anyone's interested!

This tartan scarf is pretty old from Lord & Taylor but they bring the same one back each year! I love my big blanket scarves for blustery days, but for mild weather, a lightweight one like this is perfect for adding a punch of pattern to a plain outfit. It's less full of a scarf than what it appears to be in the stock photo.

I also wanted to give an update on these Jolt girlfriend jeans now that I've been wearing them for a a few months. Initially (read my review here) I was on the fence about keeping them because they are more bleached than I typically like. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find better-fitting denim with larger distressing holes like this, and also with the hole placement actually hitting near my knees. I kept these and have been pretty pleased, but I do wear a thin belt to close the waist gap of a size 00. I wasn't sure whether I wanted these more as a slouchy "girlfriend" fit or closer to slim skinny jeans, and finally decided on the latter because I wanted to wear them more with tall boots. I had been keeping them out of the dryer to maintain a looser fit, but machine dried them for a first time (after these photos were taken) and they shrunk a bit down to the slim skinny fit I wanted. With the cuff unrolled they hit right at the base of my ankles with no alterations needed.

On an unrelated note, wanted to mention that Anthropologie just started a rare 20% off sweaters & tops promo with code TOPITOFF, ending this weekend! If you bought a top or sweater recently, they have a price adjustment policy for purchases made within 14 days which you can call or email to request (I've done this on past orders and it was a pretty easy process). You can see the curved cable poncho on me here and here, and another sale suggestion is this intricate lace peplum blouse (starts in 00 petite in 3 colors) to wear over skinny bottoms for a night out. I haven't tried it on myself but it has a few 5-star reviews.

  1. Hunters are definitely on my to-purchase list--I just haven't gotten around to it yet. I like your bright red ones for the holidays. I've been considering pink as a more all-year choice--plus I love that color!

  2. Beautiful photos! I just saw the Hunter boots at Costco.com too but they're already sold out in a lot of sizes which is a bummer--they're super cheap though if they have your size!

    Happy Friday!

  20. Hi Jean! Love the sweater and happen to have some nordstrom notes on hand! Would you happen to remember whether that was the light grey or the heather grey?

    1. Hi Marie - the tag says Light Gray. I hope you love it!

    2. Great! Thank you so much for checking! I just discovered your blog recently and absolutely love your style. I'm also very appreciative that you share affordable items, unlike other blogs where items are often $500-$1000 (which this in-debt medical student cannot afford)! I actually just ordered the Maison Jules Turtleneck, Pleather A-line skirt, and Window Pane skirt (each for $22!) from Macy's based on your recommendations, and am so excited to try them out. Thanks again for this wonderful blog and for sharing your fashion tips with us. This is now my go-to site for deciding what to wear :).

  22. Hi Jean! I love your blog; I'm very petite and this really helps me to do quick shopping :0) I have couple of questions for you on the Hunter boots... What size do you wear in the Kids Hunter boots; I wear a womens 4.5 to 5.0 so I was curious how the sizes ran on the kids boots... Also, I'm 4'11, do you think the Kids would fit better than the Tour Adults?

  24. Hi Jean. I am so glad to come across this blog about the Hunter boots. I bought the Women Tall Boots (red military) and it's super heavy and uncomfortable. I am 5'1. I NEVER knew about the 'Tour' boots till now. The Nordstrom website link you provided said the circumference is 16" calf circumference for the Tour boots so I always thought the Tall and Tour boots have the same calf circumferences. Maybe Nordstrom labeled it wrong? I definitely will go exchange for the Tour boots. Thank you for this post! Love your outfit! <3
