Here are a couple fitting room pics from the other day:
Loft Cable Sweater Dress
Loft Cable Sweater Dress - XSP (clipped back)
When I first saw this dress online, I wasn't a fan of the hem. After trying it on, I actually like it! Unfortunately there was no XXSP for me to try on and so XSP is clipped back. I suspect the XXSP will have to be shrunken a bit. I like the material and neutral color. Would recommend. I'm also loving this basketweave sweater (have in chartreuse) and this button front tweed skirt.
Ann Taylor Cable Knit Turtleneck Petite Sweater
Ann Taylor Cable Knit Turtleneck Sweater - XSP
Ann Taylor boiled wool flounce skirt - size 00P
Shoes: J.Crew (similar)
Purse: Ann Taylor mini pebbled signature tote
If you're in need of a cute turtleneck, this one comes in several colors. It's very warm and cozy. I like the thicker knit material and would recommend. I wasn't a fan of the flounce skirt at all. It runs big and I had to roll it up for the sake of this pic. I think this type of skirt looks better on someone taller.
J.Crew Wool Melton Bow Coat and BP Transit Tall Boots
J.Crew Girls Melton Bow Coat - size 10
I had to re-post this coat (see previous post) because now you can get it for 30% off w/free shipping! Use code: HOLIDAY
I also got the double cloth lady day coat in deep chartreuse and love the color! I would highly recommend both!
Anthropologie Dotted Jacquard Skirt and J.Crew double cloth lady day in deep chartruese
Brooch: c/o Talbots
Skirt: Anthropologie
Jacket: J.Crew 
Shoes: Kate Spade
Clutch: Clare V
I'll be updating all the sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday so be sure to check back! Happy shopping! XO

Hi everyone! Happy hump day! It's no surprise that I'm wearing pink and grey again today. I can't seem to get enough of this color combo lately. I'm in love with this adorable petite Halogen crewneck cashmere sweater and it comes in 21 colors! This is one of my favorite brands from Nordstrom. I have Halogen shoes, clothes and they all fit me perfectly. Nordstrom has an amazing selection of petite clothing and I could browse here for hours. If you're unsure of what size to get, they offer free shipping (no minimum) and free returns. You can't beat that! This sweater is so soft and the XXSP fits me like a glove! I'm also loving this grey striped fluffy crewneck sweater (on sale). This is the perfect weekend outfit for me. It's comfy, girly and yet still stylish. Thanks so much for reading and hope you have a great day!
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

Hi everyone! Today I'm teaming up with Nordstrom x Rebecca Minkoff to show you a few of my favorite pieces from her collection. I've always been a huge fan of Nordstrom and one of the best things about ordering from them is their return and shipping policy. I sometimes like to hang on to things for awhile before deciding to keep it. There is no time limit on returns! Plus you get free shipping and free returns which makes my life so much easier. I don't need to add a bunch of items to my cart just to get free shipping. I'm loving this mini mac crossbody! The color is called "putty" and is a cross between a light lavender and grey. It's the perfect size for the weekend and running errands! Thanks for reading and have a great day! XO
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

Happy Saturday everyone! Clearly I've been on a cape/poncho kick lately because here's another one for under $25! I know many of you were disappointed that you missed out on my Banana Republic factory crosshatch camel cape so I went searching for something similar. I posted it on Instagram and the camel color sold out very quickly. I was hesitant to order this due to the "one size" but it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Obviously I would have preferred it to fit perfectly but for $25, can you really complain? It would look much better on someone who is taller and with longer arms. Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend! :)
