Red peacoat + leaf print skirt

H&M turtleneck (current) & jacket (old), skirt made by Khatu
Adrienne Vittadini ankle boots (old), Chanel wallet on chain

We were blessed this weekend with mild temperatures - while some locals reveled by dining al fresco (didn't think it was that warm!), I took advantage and wore this to lunch with friends. Alas, it was short-lived and the weatherproof boots were back on for today's storm.

This skirt is actually part of a summery 2-piece set (last posted here), but the twill material is nice and thick for cross-seasonal wear. To keep it from rubbing and riding up my tights, I added my trusty slip skirt.

Adrienne Vittadini booties have been my favorite. They're comfortable and sturdily made with some traction on the soles. It's a shame I've only ever seen residual sizes at Marshalls, sample sale and other discount sites - I have no idea where the brand normally distributes its collection! Here's a mid-heel ankle boot by AV currently available in leather (or suede at half the price here), in sizes 6+.

A basic black turtleneck tee has been on my shopping list for months. I thought it would be the quickest item to check off, but wrangled with chokingly tight, giraffe-length (despite being folded), or pilling-prone variations before I found this one from H&M. The thin jersey is soft and comfy, plus you can't beat the price. An XS fit me well except the sleeves are a little too long, but can simply be scrunched up or hemmed.

  5. I noticed that you usually wear Fall-looking coats. Do you own any winter coats, and by winter coats, I mean those bubble-looking ones?

  8. Hi Jean what kind of tights do you wear? I've been looking for a great warm pair that fits on petites without being too long in the leg or waist. I'm 4'10, 82 pounds. Thanks!

    1. I asked the same question about a month ago and Jean recommended H&M, F21 and Talbot. I went all tights crazy since then and bought all sorts of tights since then. I even bought some girls tights 10-12,14-16 from H&M(though I haven't tried it yet). I am 4'11 and 90 pounds and so far the S (I don't there is a XS, anyways I'm talking about the smallest one) of H&M and F21 fits me well. I haven't tried the Talbots one yet. Hope this helps. =)

    2. I realized I have so many typos since I was in a hurry, but I guess you would understand what I mean.. =P

    3. Yes, those three places have affordable tights that have lasted me a while. If you need extra warmth, look for fleece-lined tights. I want to emphasize to buy sizes (ie S or S/M) rather than one size fits all at H&M (the 'one size' at F21 aren't as bad). I made the mistake of doing so recently and there was about a foot of extra length. Kids opaque tights also work great length-wise - I have some from Target.

    4. Hi Jean, when you say you got yours at Target kids department, which brand is it. Thanks Jean!

  10. I adore the bow detail on the booties! I love skater style skirts paired with tights during the winter time and you styled this so well with the red coat!

  14. I love this color combination! I also like that you chose a skirt with a slightly larger print - I think often those of us who are smaller get warned away from choosing larger prints because they can be "too big for us."

  23. Hi Jean,
    I was wondering about your chanel WOC, did you have the chain shortened? I have one too but find that the chain is too long to wear crossbody. I am 5ft tall also. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Julie

  26. As someone who is also petite and also lives in Boston, I really appreciate this blog! I love the midi-skirts but feel as though I am too petite to pull them off. Do you have any tips or is this a trend for the non-petites?
