Preview: Maine Getaway


Oversized ruffle dress: old BR (similar),  Beaded drop necklace: Forever21 (similar)
Floppy straw hat (my new love!): Gap outlet (similar larger-brim, similar smaller-brim)

Just got back from three days in Maine filled with excessive seafood and good company. I hope US & Canadian readers enjoyed the holiday weekend as much as I did! Here is a preview of gratuitous photo and video footage to ensue later this week.

    Hey Jean! I was wondering if you could do a post about finding the perfect work trousers? Even when I go to size 00 and the waist fits, every thing looks awkward on me. I don't know if it is because I am not used to the style, but I look like I have no shape under the pants. I also have a pretty small waist for an 'adult' (sz23) so even finding something that fits at the waist is difficult. Children's pants are awkward because the legs and bum don't fit :*(

  • Heather July 5, 2011 at 1:09 am

    I love the necklace on you! It's true how accessories spice up an outfit so much. & that is SUCH a cute couple picture! (:

  • MizzJ July 5, 2011 at 1:20 am

  • Rinny July 5, 2011 at 1:29 am

  • cadrommy July 5, 2011 at 8:57 am

    You look fabulous as always! I love your hat! I love hats but I can never wear them, I can't stand sweating underneath them. Lol.

  • simplyvonne July 5, 2011 at 9:40 am

  • Kirsty July 5, 2011 at 10:22 am

    what a pretty dress! looks so comfy too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Nelah July 5, 2011 at 10:30 am

    Lobe Forever21 accessories, they are not too bad in terms of quality in my opinion. Perfect pairing with your dress and nail polish.

    The pic of you and your bf is beautiful.

  • Anonymous July 5, 2011 at 11:18 am

    The last picture is amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Do you have any advice on looking older for someone with very skinny arms/legs? I'm 5'3", but have relatively long arms and legs. They look extremely skinny.

  • โ™ฅ Natalie July 5, 2011 at 11:18 am

    Awesome pictures!!

  • PetiteLittleGirl July 5, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    You look beautiful as always, Jean! Looks like you had a lovely weekend. You two make such a cute couple. I am sure Maine lobster tasted 100 times better than the frozen ones at the supermarket:)

  • Anonymous July 6, 2011 at 12:04 am

    Jean you look amazing!!! Let me tell you, I was a little bit sad because of the giveaways… I'm from South America and I've been reading you a lot lately. I love the style of the petite fashion bloggers. I get so much inspired!!. I feel that even if we live in different parts of the continent I can totally feel related to you guys. So just a big thank you! I would like to mail you one day and shared some stories about the difficulties of the "perfect fit", not only in the U.S. XO – Vanesa.

  • Anonymous July 6, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    i love all ur posts! i'm petite too and have a really hard time finding clothes that fit. I end up altering everything… Regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • o0SerenityAngel0o July 6, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    I absolutely love that dress. You look so stunning in these pictures. The very last one is so cute ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lauren July 6, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    I absolutely /adore/ your blog. Ever since I found it a month or so ago, I have gone back and read each and every one of your posts!

    You've inspired me to take more care with my style, to put in more effort each day, and to even start a blog of my own, chronicling my quest to get good petite fashion on a seriously small budget!

    Thanks so much for the great blog, and the great inspiration!
