I hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend! Nick and I are prepping for a big family reunion at Christmas, which means lots of presents left to shop for. Here’s several sales going on this weekend at some of my favorite stores, to help check off gifts on your list!

Ann Taylor – 40% off most items sitewide w/ code SHOP40

I have nothing against vibrant colors, but this season I just keep gravitating towards the neutrals in my closet. Cream, gray, brown … I like these shades in monochromatic outfits, but also love how easily they pair with each other when you need a quick outfit! I used this cheetah scarf from my Ann Taylor x EP Cozy box to add an element of print while staying within the muted color scheme. This scarf has more understated colors, perfect for those who might find traditional animal print to be too bold. For the Cozy box I also chose a navy pom beanie – it adds warmth and texture, also I often find navy to be softer and more versatile than the usual black.

I actually repeated this exact outfit twice, hence the different sunglasses here! I’ve gotten so much good feedback from you guys on these Blake ankle booties. I have two colors and wear them a little too much, but they’re one of my highest heeled shoes (~3.5″) that I can still walk a good amount in comfortably. Small sizes are a little hard to find now, but last I checked there’s some 5’s & up left here or here.

These Topshop jeans continue to be one of my most-worn pairs, and are still available in most sizes. The 25 x 30 size in this style did not need any hemming on me, also I found them to get more comfortable with wear. When I first got them I was a bit unsure about how high the rise came up (see the first photo) and how snug they were overall, but they’re now easily one of my favorites.

    I love that sweater and hat- cozy cable knit is my favorite for this season. And those sunglasses are gorgeous!

    Is this coat color from a previous season or this current season? What color is this?

    I always, always love your sense of style. We have the same body type, but you always look so much more presentable than me! I love the colours of this outfit.

    Thanks! It's by Cluse

    The color is the "Vintage Champagne" and is current, but a little hard to find in petites. I wish they made more!

    I love this outfit. Where did you get the hat?

  • Reply MaryMary86 December 11, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    I love your blog and your clothes but I'm not petite. Will the pants you show work for people of average height?

  • Reply Kristin December 11, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    What lipstick or liner are you wearing? I love the color!

  • Reply Gigi Kiersten December 11, 2016 at 4:45 pm

    Oh, I love this outfit. I think my favorite part is the jacket. It's very versatile, you can wear it to work or wear out for the night.

  • Reply Julie Hiller December 12, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    Great casual winter look and I'm loving all the different pairs of sunglasses on you!

    Thanks! It's from Ann Taylor (linked as "beanie" below the first photo)

  • Reply Jean December 12, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Happy to hear that! Most of the clothes I show come in both regular and petite sizing, or different lengths, so I hope women of all sizes and heights can still take inspiration! For example these jeans I'm wearing the 30 length, but they come in 32 or 34 lengths as well.

  • Reply Jean December 12, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you! It's Stila liquid lipstick in Patina – one of my favorites

    I love your blog and wanted to make a suggestion. Have you considered adding a gifts tab to your website? I could tell my husband "I love items recommended on this blog" but there are so many options! It's overwhelming. I'd love it if there was a tab that focused on items that are easy to buy for someone else – scarves, jewelry, sunglasses, sweaters, pajamas, robes, etc. It would be a ready made shopping list for birthdays, Valentine's and anniversaries!

    Jean, can you please post the style of the Cluse watch you're wearing or the link where to buy? Its really cute..thanks!
