I’m bummed that our holiday week with family is coming to an end, but am so grateful that we got to celebrate it with both sets of our parents! This was one of my favorite simple outfits from the week, topped with a coat borrowed from my mom and scarf borrowed from my mother in law. It’s funny when I help myself to pieces on the coat rack, they don’t recognize their own items and marvel at how they also own something “extremely similar” when they see it on me ; )
For casual outfits, these legging jeans are a staple – the higher rise and slender legs are super flattering and slimming from all angles, and you can choose short, regular, or long inseams (also available in petite). They have more stretch than regular jeans, and minimal whiskering / fading if you want a true dark blue skinny jean. Note the 26.5″ inseam on the “short” is a tad long on me and goes 1 inch past my ankles. And if you’re debating between petite or short, the petite inseam is usually about half to one inch longer than the short.
In the dismal and gloomy wintertime, one of my favorite, more subtle ways to shine is by wearing radiant colors like winter white. I reviewed this belted wool blend coat (also in burgundy or in tweed, both on major sale) in a recent blog post while the ivory was still fully stocked, so hope a few of you were able to pick it up! I got it for my mom, who’s an inch or two taller than me and an XXS regular was perfect. As I mentioned before, the fit is very slim for regular sizing, and the sleeves hit about two inches past my wrists.
