Metallic

The ease and comfort of a romper is incomparable. I love when I come across sleeved versions because they’re versatile and appropriate for every season.

The billowy sleeve on the Design Lab romper below caught my eye, and I was sold by the metallic chevron fabric and flattering neckline. The price point was great to begin with, but now it’s majorly on sale!, so I’m especially excited to feature it today.

These suede Aldo boots from years ago are a perennial favorite. They’re a great winter staple, and I found a similar pair that’s worth checking out and won’t break the bank.

Patchwork

This patchwork vest called for a ’70s-inspired outfit, hence my Madewell high-waisted flares. To tone things down, I completed the look with a ribbed Topshop bodysuit (a versatile favorite featured previously here). The texture and wispy shoulders of this faux fur drew me in, but I loved the color combination as well. All neutrals with a touch of burgundy? I couldn’t have designed it better myself!

I like easy, eye-catching items. Whether I sling this baby over a T-shirt or layer it under a wool coat to brave the cold, this vest is a comfortable standout that’s gotten a ton of wear.

The Cigarette Pant

Remember my newfound obsession with cigarette pants? This pair sparked it. They’re versatile, and I love wearing them dressed up with pumps or toned down with low ankle boots (shown) or platform sneakers and a baggy sweater.

I don’t know why it took me so long to discover that Topshop has an entire section for petites. It provides endless options for those of us who are vertically challenged. The trousers and bodysuit below both came from there (they come in regular sizes too!).

Since winter’s been mild and Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, most jackets are on sale right now. The faux-fur coat I’m wearing is no longer available, but you’ll find similar styles for a steal at the end of this post.

This ribbed bodysuit is the perfect staple piece. I wear it with everything, especially my favorite high-waisted skinnies.

My new Halogen clutch—this week’s Monday Spotlight!—and Dune London ankle boots are also great go-tos. These boots are comfortable to begin with, but the low heel makes them even more functional for everyday.
