While I’m already complaining about the colder weather, it does simplify getting dressed in the morning a little bit. I find that when I’m stuck on what to wear, all I have to do is follow a simple formula.
Slouchy Sweater + Comfortable Jeans + Heeled Booties
And all of a sudden you’re ready for a meeting, coffee date, dinner, drinks – you name it! I also love that these 3 things also can be worn in totally different ways at totally different price points. Spend a lot on cashmere or grab a cotton sweater on sale. Go for well known designer jeans or try a cool new brand like Mott & Bow. Stick to a low walkable heel or sass it up with a higher pair like mine. It’s all up to you!
Speaking of comfy jeans, I recently got these from Mott & Bow and they’re awesome. Not only are they super soft and stretchy, but they also have 2 inseam choices. The 28″ version is still a little long for my short legs, but I love that I didn’t need to take them to the tailor right away. Mott & Bow also keeps their prices around $100 a pair by controlling the entire manufacturing process, then selling them direct-to-consumer. I’m so glad I discovered them – such a great denim option!
And since I was just talking about how I’m a shrimp, I have to talk about these booties. As a petite gal, I’m always looking for ways to appear taller, without asking for a sprained ankle ? These suede booties are exactly what I need in my wardrobe. Even though they have a solid 4 inch heel, they’re surprisingly comfortable to walk in. I think the chunky heel and stretchy panels on the side are the key. Plus the suede is SO PRETTY!
