J.Crew front pocket jeans with white button front

These J.Crew jeans first made an appearance on the blog here. While I'm loving the front view (my goal to re-create this Elle McPherson look was finally realized, plus does anyone remember this Gwyneth moment from 2002?!), the pockets on my back side were all sorts of wrong so I very sadly took them back. Over time, I've realized that back pockets look best on me when they sit low and are wider versus being small and placed higher up. There are lots of brands I've tried on that just don't look right, and I try to use that knowledge to save time when trying things on. What types of back pockets work best for you?

WHBM holiday looks

Also - I love this time of year and how many holiday outfits are in stores right now. The window display at White House Black Market caught my eye the other day and I couldn't wait to try these on. The red is cute but not the best shade for my complexion. This black skirt is SO fun (it's huge!) and also comes in red. The silver dress is probably my favorite, it's got sort of a shimmery tweed quality in person. And I love the stud design on the last one. I'll be sharing LOTS more holiday outfit ideas in the coming weeks!
