There’s something about this outfit that makes it one of my favorite posts to date. I think it’s the combination of the neutral palette combined with the fact that all of these items are attainable, practical and classic. It is such a simple look, but that’s what makes it great.

Arnie and I  walked to church Sunday morning, and it was a typically chilly fall day, for sure. This jacket (which I especially love for its petite sizing) was perfectly cozy to keep me warm along the walk. By the way, I am wearing a XSP here. I tried the XXSP, but knowing I wanted room for a bulkier sweater or top underneath, the XSP was a more comfortable fit.

And I think this is the third or fourth pair I have of these jeans. You know when you find something you really like, and you buy it in every color? That’s how I feel about these jeans. I like the super slim leg opening of the legging jeans (works so well for boots weather), but I also like that this fabric isn’t prone to the stretching that a lot of jeans are. I’ve had jeans in the past that I swear grew two sizes in a day, just from stretching out so much; these really seem to hold their shape.

This bag. I found it at Marshall’s a few weeks ago for (somewhere around) $40. A friend of mine at work has almost the exact same one and got hers for $30. We both use them nearly every day for work. There’s a middle zipper pocket that separates the tote into two sections, a secure place to keep your wallet. It’s a good small size for everyday toting to and from the office, and the removable shoulder strap is great when you want free hands.

Proof that a polished look for a date night or dinner out is only a few well-fitting pieces away. :)

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.
What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
