cozy winter essentials and the best Nordstrom brands for older kids.

Hannah’s: Sweater.(Tucker and Tate-in-store, not available online yet.) Jeans. Booties. Similar Hat. Similar Coat.

My Coat. Scarf. Skinny Jeans. Similar Sweater. Booties.(also similar here.)

Last week we went to a soccer banquet at my kids’ middle school.  I always think my kids are getting so big, and forget that mostly I’m just gauging their size from mine.  And I’m short guys.  I’m so, so short.  Take Hannah, for example, she looks so grown up here, don’t you think?  You’d never know she’s by far the tiniest 8th greater in her school.  Like tiny.  But next to me, she looks like she’s really growing up… and really in every way but height she totally is.

So, Hannah became a teenager this year (which still blows my mind, how do I have a child this old?) and it’s funny how subtly it happens, but suddenly she’s not a little kid anymore.  There are lots of transitions that come with that, and one of them is the way she likes to dress.

When you’re a kid who also happens to be really short like Hannah it can be really tricky to find pieces that fit your age, and also your body.

Ann Taylor // LOFT Friends and Family sale favorites.

You guys know my love for Ann Taylor and Loft runs deep, so whenever there’s a sale, I stock up.  This weekend is one of my favorites because it’s both stores’ Friends and Family sale which means everything is 40% off.  Yes, everything.

I ordered this coat, and this sweater, and then I noticed these amazing pants in-store yesterday so I’m going to order those today because they come in petite!

I rounded up my favorites from both stores below, but seriously I could shop for hours cause there are so many good cozy pieces and tons of great gift options too…

(use code: FRIENDS40 at checkout)

Now if only I could figure out a way to get Ann to adopt me??

other great sales this weekend:

J.Crew Factory// 40-60% off everything.

Nordstrom// The fall sale is still happening but it’s almost over so hurry and grab a few things before it ends!


cozy outfits series: puffer vests.

puffer vest. buffalo check shirt. pom beanie . jeans. Hunter Boots. (kid version, great for petites!  Adult version.)

Hey guys!  Happy Thursday!  A few weeks ago I did a few polls on my insta-stories and asked what kinds of things you wanted to see more of on my blog during the holiday season.  One of the top requests was for cozy outfit ideas.


I was actually thrilled to hear this because cozy outfits are my jam.  I realized the other day, how much I love to get dressed this time of year.  I really have to struggle to come up with creative ideas for getting dressed in the summer months, but the ideas start flowing as soon as the temperature drops.  Which is why I was really excited to see that a lot of you were interested in cozy fall and winter outfit ideas.

Today, let’s talk about puffer vests.

Tips for making over the knee boots work for you. (even if you’re short.)

OTK Boots. (on sale right now!) Similar Sweater. Jeans. (TTS) Similar Bag here and here. Hat. (comes in 3 colors!) Sunglasses.

When the over the knee boot trend emerged in 2015, my first thought was, “wow, that’s a really cute trend and surprisingly not at all hooker-ish looking like I would have thought.”  And my second thought was, “there’s no way I can ever pull that off.”

Tall boots are always tricky for petites, and OTK ones just seemed like one of those places that sartorially I shouldn’t go.  Because, #shortlegs.  But the trend has staying power, and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, so earlier this fall I thought I would finally give it a shot.  Turns out petite girls can wear OTK boots, and I am obsessed with these.
