Doesn’t this entire outfit scream cozy? While color holds a near and dear place to my heart, sometimes it feels good to just put on a neutrals. Mixing black, brown and tan can be much easier and effortless than you think. I paired black pumps with a button front fitted cardigan with tortoise shell buttons. Adding a fuzzy teddy coat and structured caramel handbag kept the shoes from not being over dressy, but also polished.
While I usually sport skinny jeans since I’m on the petite side, a good bootcut jean can also elongate your leg when you wear it with a pair of heels. The pumps I’m wearing are only about 2 inches high with a block heel and the boot cut of my pants allow the bow on the toe of the shoe to pop out. I think another really great way to wear flares is with a pointy flat or heel so it pops out of the bottom when you stand and walk. Both are little tricks for a petite person to gain a little longer look for their legs.
This season I picked up two teddy coats including the one showed here and a pea coat style in a rose color. I reach for them constantly for errand running, extra warmth on the way to yoga and so many other occasions. They are easy and luxurious to dress up or down depending on what you have underneath.
The purse I’m wearing here is one I received for my birthday this year and let me tell you I’ve never received so many compliments. I couldn’t believe when I saw it what the pricepoint was! Neiman Marcus carries their own line and this bag was on sale for $50! Yes, $50! I snatched it up immediately and it’s such a perfect staple for all year round. I love that it’s roomy for even an ipad but also can be converted to a cross body. I think it makes a FANTASTIC work bag and dresses down nicely with jeans. The soft warm color pairs with so much!
