Petite Lookbook: Layered Trench

I love sun! It was in the 60's two weekends ago in Boston, and I celebrated by enjoying brunch outdoors. The weather here is unpredictable, though, so I made sure to dress in layers and wear comfy walking shoes.
Trench Coat: Theory sz P
Tee & Leggings: H&M sz 2
Shoes: Aldo taupe pumps
Bag: LV Damier Azur Speedy 25

This trench is an outlet find, and is one of the few Theory pieces I own in size "P" or "Petite." Size P is supposed to encompass 00 to 2 (quite a range) so I usually avoid it and head straight for the numerical sizing. Although this trench is a little loose on me, the fold-up sleeve cuffs and belted tie waist make it petite-friendly.


Sweater: J.Crew bling button cardigan, sz XS. Sold here.
Necklace: Juicy Couture
Vintage bow shoe clips from eBay.

  1. I love it, doll!! I work with ppl in Boston a lot and they tell me about the weather all the time! In fact, my husband studied in MA, he really makes me feel bad when I complain about weather, haha.

    Your hair is divine!!! The first shot is perfection!

  2. That Theory trench is so cute! Blast this LA heat wave! I wanna wear my coats!

    The shoe clip-ons are a great idea! My mom has a jar full of vintage clip-on earrings that you just reminded me I want to raid for shoe clipping potential.

  13. I love how you've managed to make a longer trench look good on your smaller frame. And the shoe clips add the perfect touch... it's great how they are the same colour as your coat. :)

    p.s. great hair. do you ever curl it?

  15. ladies, fyi Macy's and Nordstrom both have some gorgeous size 0P Tahari suits on sale. I got one for $200 and one for $100. They need no tailoring and are way, way underpriced.

  17. the bow shoe clips are darling! and i love the colour of your trench coat. great fit for your proportions. classy chic.

    i agree with what you said about celebrating birthdays with food and laughter. the clubs are overrated. and thanks, i shop around at a lot of different places because in vancouver, all the girls shop at aritzia and yeah, i do as well, but i try to branch out to find something different and be unique. i'm glad you enjoy my outfit posts because i enjoy yours too! xo
