Weekend Cozy + My Favorite Petite-Friendly J Brand Denim

Distressed denim + furry vest
Sweater: LOFT (currently 40% off the sale price with code FIRSTLOOK and lots of sizes left--I sized up one size) | Vest: Sam Edelman | Denim: J Brand | Bag: Reed Krakoff | Shoes: rag + bone (I sized up one whole size) | Sunglasses: Valentino | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Gorjana via Rocksbox

Today I'm sharing an easy and cozy weekend look. Since the weather has been so warm this fall and early winter, this is the first time I got to wear this furry Sam Edelman vest since I purchased it during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July. It definitely kept me toasty even in 40-degree temperatures.

Rag + Bone Margot Booties

I also picked up these rag + bone Margot booties during the same sale, but they have gotten a ton of wear in the last few months. I noticed the same ones (in black) are currently 50% off at Nordstrom with smaller sizes still available. These booties are so comfortable to walk in despite the medium-high heel, and they are well-proportioned and flattering on petite women (read Kelly's detailed review here for more info). Note: most of rag + bone's ankle boots run small; I wear a 36/6 in them when I would usually take a 35/5.

LOFT Tunic + Furry Vest

The denim I'm wearing here is a style I've found to really work well for slimmer-hipped bodies. I have more curve to my rear and legs, but my hips are narrow, so I often find pants too baggy in the hips, and when I try to adjust them, the waistband gaps and looks sloppy. I've found that J Brand is generally a good fit for my body shape.


I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. Sean and I spent ours skiing and doing a bit of Christmas shopping (confession: it was mostly online while in our pajamas). Hope all who celebrated had a happy Hanukkah!

  1. The vest is not available anymore? Also, what size do you wear in these jeans?

    1. I just clicked and realized it's not available on Nordstrom's site any longer. Sorry about that! I'm not sure when it sold out, but sometimes items do tend to pop back if you keep checking. I wear a 23 in all the denim styles I mentioned.

  2. Love this vest!

  4. I have the same pair of booties. May I ask what socks are you wearing them with?
