Snowcat & Cabernet





Jacket: ZARA | Blouse: LOFT (now 40% off) | Pants: J.Crew (or try Crew Cuts if you're petite like me)(now an additional 30% off the sale price!) | Sunglasses: Karen Walker Perfect Day | Shoes: Ann Taylor (similar by Sam Edelman or Valentino | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Necklace: Amrita Singh | Bracelets: J.Crew (similar pyramid stud bracelet here), Aldo, F21 | Rings: Vintage

I decided to hop on the cabernet/burgundy bandwagon and picked up this pretty pleated blouse from LOFT a couple weeks ago during a 50% off flash sale. As of today, it's marked 40% off online (no code needed), as are a bunch of great work-friendly pieces that can do double duty as chic weekend attire. Other picks that fit the bill: the polka dot blouse from this post and this black dress (available in regular, petite, and tall sizing) that will be making an appearance here soon.

Occasionally, I feel like wandering through the Crewcuts (kids') section at J.Crew is worth getting a little bit of the side-eye from their sales associates. Case in point: the snowcat-print pants I'm wearing here, which were essentially the same as the adult version, but cost less, fit better, and had an adjustable waist. If you are a fellow boyish-figured petite and are feeling frustrated with too-long, too-roomy pants at J.Crew, I'd definitely suggest seeing whether a reasonable duplicate of the pants you want might exist in the Crewcuts section. UPDATE: these pants are now an additional 30% off the sale price at J.Crew, making them only $27.99 for the Crewcuts version and $48 for the adult version with code OURTREAT (and free shipping, too!).

  3. I am in love with those pants! They look extra rich paired with the burgundy blouse. I just jumped on that color bandwagon too, and I love it! Such a great shade for Fall and Winter.

  5. You look so pretty! I am envious you still get to wear short sleeved and sandals! Ove here we have to bundled up and fireplace was turned on last night!
    Such a brilliant idea to shop at kids section. I do occasionally find kids stuff fit me but sometimes they do not have enough room in the thigh or chest area lol
