Halogen cashmere sweater xxsp, Blank NYC jacket in “coffee bean” xs (sleeves shortened),
JBrand jeans 24 in demented, Joie pumps 5.5, DIY bag (tutorial or similar), Baublebar necklace c/o

This outfit contains some of my most-worn pieces over this year like these jeans (yes to white jeans after Labor Day & beyond!) and suede jacket, updated with a few recent finds! I often get questions on affordable petite cashmere, so am happy to share one that is reasonably priced and comes in over a dozen color choices.

This sweater is labeled as lightweight and is on the thinner side. The fit feels true to size, and I love the slightly longer, tunic-style length with side slits. I tried on several cashmere options under $100 (including other styles from this same brand) and liked this one best for overall fit, cut and quality.

I’m partnering with Nordstrom today on the topic of Fall shoes, and wanted to highlight a few different styles for various wardrobe needs! First off, I would not recommend wearing over-the-knee boots to an office, but a sleek knee-high boot can be classic and appropriate in certain work environments. For fellow ladies with shorter legs and narrow calves, however, you know how hard it is to find that elusive boot that actually hits below the knee and isn’t too loose around…

Nine West Calla knee-high boots: available in two faux suede fabric colors that felt fairly close to actual suede. These are both narrow calf and short leg-friendly! I tried on a size 5 and they hit right below my knees, and the calf fit was about 12.5″ around, notably narrower than what’s listed online. Note the toes are a fairly pointed style. This pair won’t break the bank, but I also found a gorgeous higher-end version in real suede which I’ll post about in a bit!

Sam Edelman blake booties: I just love these for the narrower almond toes and higher shaft with slim ankle opening (good for those who have narrow ankles and are tired of them wobbling around in big openings!). I’m sure all my brown boots start to look alike, but cut makes a big difference in what I choose to pair for outfit vs outfit. I will show these in more posts soon, but I love how flattering & lengthening these look both against bare legs and with skinny jeans. Sizing: I am usually between a size 5 and 5.5, and a 5 fit best.

BP Trolley booties now in a new burgundy suede – last posted about here. Still one of my most comfortable boots on rotation after all these years! The rounded toe on these feel more casual so they are my go-to errands bootie. Sizing: I took a 5.5, and would recommend going up half a size if you’re usually in-between.

Joie tassel pumps – These are my first Joie piece, and I thought the quality & very sleek silhouette felt comparable to that of higher-end designers. Sizing: narrower in the toes, so I took a 5.5. As with most delicate suede pieces, I sprayed them down with this leather & suede protectant before wearing! If anyone has tried this spray on their suede jackets (like some of the online reviewers), please let me know how that worked out!

I got several questions on these jeans, both about the fit and also whether I had patched up the distressing! They do look noticeably less distressed on me than in the stock photos, but I think that’s just because they are pulled more taut on the legs of the model. Fit-wise, I love that these, in a “cropped” cut, hit me at a great length without hemming needed. They are folded up a bit to show off the tassels on my pumps, but typically they hit right below my ankle.

Side note, these are my second pair of Quay sunglasses and I have to say this Aussie brand is quickly becoming a favorite. They fit my face type well and don’t slide down my low nose bridge, plus I almost always get compliments on the styles. Unfortunately the exact 55mm style I got looks to be sold out (check for re-stocks here), but I’m excited to try more of their affordable designs!

    I absolutely LOVE all of your outfits!! I have a mini session with an amazing local photographer this weekend with my husband (gotta get those Christmas cards ready!). I was wondering what you would recommend for an outfit for this? Something with pattern? Both of us wearing different patterns? I am 5 foot and my husband is 5' 8". I have big biceps and quads… UGH, but I can't complain because I love my curves! 🙂

    Hi Jean,
    Two questions:

    First, I'm finding it difficult to read your posts from oldest to newest. The older posts relate more to were my wardrobe is at right now. Is there an easy way to navigate though the posts this way? Maybe it's just difficult because I am on mobile.

    Second, I'm receiving a sewing machine for Christmas. Do you have any advice about features to look for? I haven't decided which model to ask for yet.
