Spring felt so far away with our recent onslaught of snow, but the balmy temps earlier this week has me hopeful again! Today’s post is in partnership with White House Black Market showing some of my selects from their newest spring collection. For this transitional outfit I’m playing with both length and texture, pairing a long, soft piece with slightly more rugged & casual cropped bottoms. Both pieces are on the slimmer-cut side, and are shown here with no alterations. WHBM petite fashion spring outfitIf you are petite but love the look of boyfriend jeans, I often suggest keeping an eye out for “girlfriend” cut denim. These usually have the slouchy, comfy feel of boyfriend jeans but in a slimmer, more feminine cut that won’t overwhelm a small frame. The ones I’m wearing here can be un-cuffed to a full ankle length, or rolled up as shown for a more casual look. It’s hard to tell via photos, but each of the distressed areas are reinforced with patches sewn on from the interior.

Some of my favorite details on this trench are the cropped back flap and the long back slit. The belt actually sits higher at my natural waist, allowing the bottom to flow long and freely as you walk.

Measurements of trench in xxsp: 13.5″ across shoulders, 22″ sleeve length, and about 40″ total length. Jacket is fully-lined and of medium weight.
Measurements of jeans in 00p: 13.25″ across waist, 17″ across hips, 7″ rise, 24″ inseam when cuffed (it’s how they arrive out of the package), 26.25″ inseam when un-cuffed. Fit is true to size like a 24 waist in denim.

This isn’t pictured but I also got to try on WHBM spring shoes, and am thrilled to share about these versatile brown platform sandals, a close dupe for my pair (posted here) from years ago. I always get questions on those and have to say the WHBM version is notably more comfortable in comparison, after a few hours of test-wearing. The all-over neutral color is great with both bare legs or pants/jeans, and the platform makes walking in heels of that height a little easier. The front toe version runs a little narrow so a 5.5 was the best fit for me.WHBM petite spring outfit girlfriend jeans sripe tee

    Hi there! Are your pumps pink or nude? I'm trying to decide whether I should get this pair of light pink flat sandals, but I have no idea what I could match it with besides white and pastel pink, which isn't really in my wardrobe, and wondering if it would make my Asian skin look washed out.
