Cream + Leather // Last Minute Gift Ideas

petite winter outfits with combat boots

Continuing on yesterday’s theme of my foolproof winter outfit formula, this is one of the pairings mentioned that I have on heavy rotation! The leather-like finish on the leggings and the chunky platform boots add a little edge but still make for a very comfortable outfit while I’m running errands or at daycare pickup.

It’s hard to believe that we’re just days away from Christmas and the New Year is quickly approaching! With both of those in mind, I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to share a few last-minute gift ideas. If you live near a store, you can order online for quick and easy in-store pickup and take advantage of their free in-store gift wrapping! For those who don’t have a store close by, they have three ways to find out how quickly an item can be shipped to your zip code.

    How do the Commando leggings compare to the BP faux leather ones you’ve recommended in the past? I have those and wondering how they stack up in comparison. Love how chic and versatile all the outfits look!

      Hi Christina, the BP ones are lighter weight and are still one of my favorites for everyday wear. The Commando ones are a little thicker with a more pebbled finish, have strong compression in comparison and take a little wiggling to get on and off so are good if you want some “shaping” and more hold!

    I love your website.
    My daughter is graduating from college in May 2022 in Boston. I am looking for a nice dress for the graduation ceremony. I am 5’2 and weight 100 ibs. I am having difficulty finding a right dress. Please advise. Thank you.

      Hi Geena, congratulations to your daughter! As spring rolls around Ann Taylor will have nice options, Banana Republic petites, also Nordstrom petites with brands like Eliza J make dresses great for occasions like a graduation. I wouldn’t worry now as most spring dresses won’t arrive until the March – April time so you can shop then!
