Bloomingdale’s Friends + Family // the striped jumpsuit

striped jumpsuit for petite women spring fashion houston

Bloomingdale’s is having an awesome sale right now with up to 30% off a lot of their items (no code needed). One of my favorite sections to browse is actually their exclusive in-house brand, Aqua. Their XS sometimes runs on the smaller side, and I’ve had several petite-friendly finds there in the past!

This jumpsuit from the sale is very flattering and elongating, especially with the vertical stripes working their magic! I wore this several times while visiting Houston – mostly casually with low slide sandals and a denim jacket during the daytime, and dressed up with heels for a night out with friends. The fabric has a gauzy feel to it and is lightweight and breezy, with a shorter slip lining underneath. The shoulder straps are adjustable in length, and the waist is elasticized for quick and easy on/off (plus is very forgiving for wearing above a bump!).

Be sure to also check out these items as part of the sale!



1. Feminine spring dresses:
aqua floral dress bloomingdales

Floral print knit dress – I tried this on and loved the pretty print! Fitted waist styles aren’t my friend right now, but I wanted to share this as a lovely spring / summer dress that’s very affordable. XS is stretchy and fits like an XXS-XS. Since this isn’t petite sizing, ladies who are on the shorter side might want to shorten the shoulder straps as the only alteration.

Aqua scallop neckline sheath – won’t fit my current body type, but I’m a sucker for scallop details & white dresses.

Bow shoulder dress – darling little dress in either rose pink or navy!



2. Extended sizing denim:

Bloomingdales has a big selection of designer denim starting in size 22 regular or 23 petite! Here’s a few top styles in my wardrobe that I’ve worn and loved for years (bonus: they are all cropped, so no hemming needed on petites):

Best black jeans: J.Brand Alana jeans in “vanity” (high rise) sz 24. See them on me. The higher waist and “hold” make these super flattering on even short legs! To slow down fading on dark jeans, I wash on the gentle cycle inside-out (only after every couple of wears) and avoid machine drying, unless I want to shrink the jeans down a bit.

Best white jeans: J.Brand skinny jeans in “demented” (low rise) sz 24. See them on me. I’ve posted these a ton before – they’re stretchy, comfy, and more opaque than other brands. Also … unlike in the stock photo, the distressing does not look very distressed on me.

Good blue jeans: I don’t have a holy grail pair of blue jeans, but these are good options for petites:
Mid rise, 26″ inseam – Paige Verdugo crop jeans (I go 1 size down in these compared to J.Brand)
High rise, 26″ inseam – J.Brand Alana jeans in their darker blue washes

3. Warm weather wedges:

Castaner shoes – Comfy and adorable espadrilles made in Spain (you can read more about their crafting process here!). I have a pair of their wedges in sz 35/5 (pictured here in pic #5) and would say mine fit about a half size big like a 35.5.

See by Chloe – All See by Chloe is included in sale! They have some super cute shoes this year (like these suede wedges) and cross-body bags in designs reminiscent of their pricier sister line.

    Hi Jean!
    Thanks for letting us know about the Bloomingdale’s F&F sale! I actually found out about it earlier today in search of the Theory crepe trench you showed us last week or so, which they do have in stock in size P in black. Didn’t get it but instead got another one of their crepe trenches exclusive to Bloomingdale’s in beige, the color I’ve been looking for. Can’t wait to get it & try it on (cross your fingers)!

      I think I see the “nude khaki” shade you’re referring to – looks like a classic! Keep me posted on how the trench works out for you!

    This is the cutest jumpsuit ever! ❤️❤️ I love simple patterns and colours that aren’t florals, and this is perfect. Really hoping it fits me too and isn’t too big! 🙂

    I love the color of the lip stick you’re wearing on this post. Do you mind sharing brand and color? Thanks in advance.

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite April 21, 2018 at 10:31 am

      Sorry Vickie for the delayed response! It’s Kat Von D liquid lip in Lolita.

      • Reply Tammy April 22, 2018 at 7:40 pm

        Is it Lolita I or Lolita II? I have Lolita II and it looks a little more brown on my lips than what the picture is showing.

        • Reply Jean | Extra Petite April 22, 2018 at 9:27 pm

          It’s Lolita I

    Aqua is actually one of my faves from Bloomingdales! I bought one of their dresses for a wedding I went to and it fit amazingly!

    Cute jumpsuit! I like the cinched waist so that petite gals like us are not lost in extra fabric and love the extra layer on the bottom so that it isn’t see through. Gorgeous as usual my friend!

    I love everything from the AQUA line and this is no different. Love that the stripes make you look taller. Definitely thinking about getting this for an upcoming vacation!

    Congratulations!!! I love your blog. Just wanted to let you know that junior size barefoot dreams wrap is half off right now at $34.50. It’s a final sale, but the one I already have fits so much better than the smallest ones from nordstroms. I went ahead a bought three more to keep and give as gifts. They would be great maternity lounge wear too.

    I always feel so happy when I see an outfit on your blog that matches one of mine! You are so stylish, that’s why. I have bought (on sale too) a similar long dress, using the vertical stripes to add some artificial length! Always a good thing for petites, right?! Love, Lieske
