Style a Friend, Barefoot Dreams Caridigan, Leggings

MEGAN | Cardigan (XS) Leggings (XS)

ALI-SHAUN |Cardigan (M) Leggings (10)

RHONDA | Cardigan (M) Leggings (M)

Of course, we all beelined straight for the cozy cardigans!  Me and Rhonda are both wearing the Barefoot Dreams cozy chic ultra light cardigan and we both loved it!  It’s a lighter weight material than the circle cardigan that Ali-Shaun is wearing, plus it comes with a coordinating tie belt that you can wrap around your waist and tie, or tie in the back and leave the front open. It has pockets and is wonderful for lounging or wearing out.  

Ali-Shaun has on the Barefoot Dreams circle cardigan that never goes out of style!  It’s something we all wear year round and I’ve gifted them to my besties as Christmas gifts.  When my friend Audrey met me for brunch the other Saturday, she was wearing the one I gave her!

Style a Friend, Ugg Cardigans, Leggings

MEGAN | Cardigan (XS) Leggings (XS)

ALI-SHAUN |Cardigan (M) Leggings (10)

RHONDA | Jacket (M) Leggings (M)

We are new to the UGG Phoebe Wrap cardigan, which we all quickly fell in love with! It is the softest coziest thing, with a springy texture to it and a lovely drape front.  It fits TTS, and if you find that the Barefoot Dreams cardigans are too tight in the arms, you’ll like this one much better! 

Ali-Shaun ended up getting the UGG Phoebe Wrap cardigan in black/size Small.

Rhonda is wearing UGG double fleece drape jacket and it is SO GOOD!  It’s more sporty with a shorter back/longer front and ribbed cuffs.  The double fleece makes it so SUPER SOFT!  If you’re concerned about white, it also comes in black and looks so luxe and rich!

I’m still torn on which one to give my mom for Christmas- I know she’d love both!  She’s a fan of white, so I’m leaning towards the UGG double fleece drape jacket.

For size reference, I wanted to show you how these pieces look when Rhonda and I switched.  Rhonda probably prefers a Small cardigan and I need the XS jacket.


Style a Friend, Sweatshirt, Leggings, Pullover, Hoodie

MEGAN | Sweatshirt (XS) Leggings (XS) Nike Sneakers

ALI-SHAUN | Pullover (M) Leggings (10) Brooks Sneakers

RHONDA | Hoodie (M) Leggings (M) P448 Sneakers

If you ever bump into Ali-Shaun, chances are she’ll be dressed like this!  It’s her comfort zone, and also practical since she spends so much time at the ball fields.

Style a Friend, Nike Sneakers

Nike Sneakers

I’m all about sneakers and especially the Nike Flyknit for running.  This pair pulls on with adjustable lacing and springy, responsive “React foam” technology.   They fit TTS, but the arch felt a little high to me.

Style a Friend, Pullover LLBean, Leggings, Brooks Sneakers, Hoodie, P448 Sneakers

ALI-SHAUN | Pullover (M) Leggings (10) Brooks Sneakers

RHONDA | Hoodie (M) Leggings (M) P448 Sneakers

Ali-Shaun’s pullover is quilted goodness with a kangaroo pocket.  She loved and kept it!

Ali-Shaun swears by her Lululemon Align Crop leggings.   She says they feel like a second skin and she feels confident and comfortable in these all day long.

Rhonda is wearing the Zella high waist studio light leggings, which I also wear.  They fit TTS and last forever!

Style a Friend, Hoodies, Leggings, Sneakers

RHONDA | Hoodie (M) Leggings (M) P448 Sneakers

ALI-SHAUN |Hoodie (M) Madewell Tee (M) Leggings (10) Brooks Sneakers

These hoodies are perfect for grab and go!  Ali-Shaun’s has a fun side slit and I’m crazy for the neutral tiger print on Rhonda’s. Both are by Zella, so you know the quality is on point!

Rhonda gets tons of wear with her P448 Sneakers.  They slip on so you don’t have to tie them and she always gets compliments on them.

Style a Friend, Nike Sweatshirt, Leggings, Sneakers

Hoodie (XS) Faux Leather Leggings (XS) Nike Sneakers

Bring on the SPANKX!  I always feel like I’m never gonna be able to pull these up past my hips, but once I get them on, they’re actually pretty comfy!  I love the sheen of the faux leather and how sporty they look with a hoodie!

The hoodie runs small, size up for a more relaxed fit.


Faux Leather Leggings (XS) Camisole (XS) Duster Cardigan (XXS) Heels (TTS) Clutch

I wanted to give you a few more outfit options to wear with your faux leather leggings, so here is a dressed up look with the shiny duster cardigan and heels.

Faux Leather Leggings (XS) Sweater (XS) Boots (TTS) Crossbody

And to keep you extra warm and cozy, a longer sweater and knee high boots looks great!


Style a Friend, Balloon Sleeve Sweater, Jeans, Booties, Green Sweater, Maroon VNeck Sweater

MEGAN | Sweater (XS) Jeans (0P) Booties

ALI SHAUN | Sweater (M) Jeans (29) Booties

RHONDA | Sweater (M) Jeans (30) Booties

Time for jeans, sweaters and booties!  I like the dot texture on my puff sleeve sweater as well as the vibrant color.  Ali-Shaun is always stunning in green and could take this tie sleeve top to the office or dinner, and Rhonda sweater is so soft we couldn’t stop touching her! 😉

Ali-Shaun and Rhonda are both wearing Articles of Society high waist skinny jeans and the dark wash looks great on both of them.  I cuffed Ali-Shaun’s but at 5’9 with all the legs, Rhonda didn’t have to.  They have some stretch too.

I’m wearing Kut from the Kloth jeans, and I cut the hem, then folded them up once to show a little ankle skin.

Booties are on sale and fit TTS.

Style a Friend, Sweater, Jeans, Heels

MEGAN | Sweater (XS) • Jeans (24, size down) • Heels

I was so crazy about this delicate sweater that I already wore it on a date night!  It’s got a lovely texture, a tiny bit of shimmer and is a slightly cropped length, but not to short when you pair it with high waist jeans.

I always size down in Madewell jeans, I find they tend to run large.

But look, it’s equally as good on a taller person!  Isn’t Rhonda rockin’ this outfit!  I usually see her in baggy tops and loose cardigans, so I didn’t realize she has hiding this BANGIN’ BOD!  We always laugh because her and her hubby love to enjoy wine every night- but she still wakes up and runs in the morning!

MEGAN | Sweater (XS) • Jeans (24, size down) • Booties

I liked the drop sleeve and contrasting rib knit on this sweater.  It also comes in a really pretty blue!

Pullovers and UGGS!  These pullovers could easily fit into the activewear category, but I wanted to show you how easily they pair with jeans and UGGS!

The UGGS feel like your feet are getting a wonderful bear hug, but on my size 6 foot and being so short, I felt like these boots make me look like I had block feet.

Ali-Shaun loved hers!  The side button is such a cute detail! She wears size 7.5.

MEGAN | Tee (XS) Jeans (25) Sneakers

ALI SHAUN | Tee (M) Similar Jeans (29) Veja Sneakers

Ali-Shaun and I both agree that STS Blue jeans are the best budget friendly jean.  They are great quality and stylish, but so inexpensive! Ali-Shaun said she wears hers all the time!

Sweatshirt (M) Jeans (29) P448 Sneakers

Rhonda’s weekend outfit is casual but so cute with the pop of pink and the drop balloon sleeve on that sweatshirt.

MEGAN | Tunic (S/M) • JeansBooties

ALI SHAUN | Tunic (S/M) •  Abercrombie Jeans (10/30) • Booties

We’re all crazy for this long tunic sweater that looks equally as great with jeans as it does with leggings.  Both of our jeans are from Abercrombie and I’ve been happily surprised to find so many great things there that aren’t just for teenagers!

MEGAN | Tee (XS) • Jeans (24, size down) • Flats

ALI SHAUN | Tee (XS) •  Jeans (M) • Similar Sneakers

We both tried on the JAG jeans, which are so super cute with the cuffed hem and red thread.  Ali-Shaun is wearing an 8 regular, but needed to size down to a petite to fit her smaller frame.

On top, we’re wearing Amazon and I’m smitten with this puff sleeve top and also wear my striped top/military jacket all the time. #twinning

MEGAN | Similar Tee  (XS) • Jeans (24, size down) Jacket (XS) • Booties

ALI SHAUN | Tee (M)  AOS Jeans (29) Jacket (M) Booties

Don’t forget about black jeans! So chic and perfect for this time of year! This pair my Madewell is my current ‘go to’.  They are a comfortable high waist with just the right amount of stretch.

Similar Tee  (XS) • Jeans (24, size down) • Jacket (XS)

This faux leather jacket is ultra cool with the silver zippers and hardware.  I felt like it was big on me, I’d recommend sizing down.

MEGAN | Tee (XS) • Jeans (24, size down) • Booties

And black jeans look so good with light colored tops too.  This henley is also on repeat over here and I like how the dark buttons coordinate with the jeans.


Style a Friend, Pajamas, Ugg Beanie

MEGAN | Pajamas (XS) Hat

We couldn’t leave you without trying on some cozy holiday pajamas!  This fair isle set is so pretty with the light pink and pale blue.

Ali-Shaun loves the menswear inspired flannel pajamas and hers are bright red with adorable dogs on them.  Rhonda was shocked that hers fit in the length!

And Ali-Shaun is down!  I swear, trying on tons of clothes is really exhausting! ;). I’ve been wearing this pajamas nonstop.  They are so comfortable!  They’re a thin, lightweight knit, but super soft and cute!

I’m so very thankful to have these girls in my life! Aren’t they fun?! I really hope seeing these clothes on different body types is helpful for you!  Let me know if you want to see Al-Shaun and Rhonda back in future posts!
