Classic Camel + Pine at Mistletoe Farms

classic winter style burberry coat hunter boots extra petite

Burberry coat sz 2 altered (on sale! my review), Modcloth skirt xxs

This outfit features some of the more versatile pieces in my closet, which I keep reaching for time and time again! I was just a tad excited to see Rory rock this same coat throughout the Gilmore Girls revival. I’ve been looking for similar alternatives to recommend, but per usual there’s a shortage of classic camel coats on the market. The closest thing I could find at a more affordable price point is this belted camel coat, which comes in petite sizing and has positive reviews.winter fashion outfit ideas extra petite blog
If you’re looking for a work-appropriate top that can easily be restyled for other occasions, I love this little sweater-shirt combo. It has a tweedy knit texture with some stretch, and I’m actually concealing one of the cutest features – a mock layered shirttail that peeks out at the bottom!

For professional wear, you can wear this top simply untucked over ankle pants or slacks, or tuck it into a pencil or A-line skirt. For dressier occasions, I’ve also worn it in this post with a fun fringe skirt for a holiday party (skirt is sold here and fits perfectly in xxs without alterations). Fit-wise, an XS is good on me everywhere except sleeve length, which I have folded under a bit here. The overall shirt length when un-tucked is surprisingly pretty good on me!

You’ve also seen this corduroy skirt on me a few different times now – first in this monochromatic lace pairing, then with a satiny blush top, and here with tights and a sweater. Which one was your favorite look?

We went artificial for our Christmas tree this year, but I still jumped at every opportunity to join friends on their tree hunts! There’s just something magical about the scent of fresh pine and the crisp winter air. These photos were taken at Mistletoe Acres Farm, a little family-run business where it’s clear they love what they do. The friendly grandpa decked out in farm gear went out of his way to strike up convo, offer us hot cocoa, and even compliment my hair : )

    Hi, I have the same coat and was wondering how you tie the belt to keep it out of the way when wearing it open?

    Always love hearing from fellow Bostonians! It was my first time venturing out to that quaint area and definitely won't be my last. Wishing you a happy holiday season as well!

    Hi Beth – I might not be the best to judge since I have a pretty high tolerance for the cold and rarely break out puffer jackets (which most New Englanders deem a must). I also layer a lot in order to wear even my lighter coats throughout the winter. I'd say this is probably warm enough for as low as 30s. Perhaps others who own this same coat can jump in!

    Hi Lindsay! That's awesome that you were able to get the kids. I've done a few reviews of Burberry kids coats in the past, and unfortunately their kids clothing just doesn't fit me right since it's cut differently (versus just miniature versions of women's). I haven't tried their signature quilted jackets before in either womens or kids, so that's good to know the 14 worked out for you!

    Hi Liana, I'm so glad you were able to snag the navy! It's crazy how quickly Modcloth sold out of those. It sounds classic and perfect paired with a white boat neck top.

    I'm so happy to hear that! It definitely is a splurge, but my Burberry coats remain some of my most treasured (and most worn) pieces in my closet : )

    This is such a wonderful post! I grew up right beside this farm. As a fellow Bostonian it always warms my heart to see you feature so many outside-of-Boston little gems. Love that you recycle pieces in so many ways. Thanks, as always, and Happy holidays to you both!

    I love the Burberry coat. Can you tell us how warm it is? How low can the temperature be outside before it's too low for this coat to be warm enough? I notice you always wear it open, so I'm guessing you're not wearing it in very cold weather. Trying to decide if it's a good winter buy for this NYC girl. Thanks!

    One little Burberry tip for petites – they make kids' clothes! I recently replaced my old black (adult size xs) Burberry quilted jacket for a red one, in girl's size 14. It even fits better than the adult, because it is a bit more fitted, and it's about half the price. Serious win.

    I like the way you have restyled your top.
    I also like the mod cloth skirt and the colour is really complementing.

    I love seeing you restyle clothes! I bought the navy skirt on modcloth upon your recommendation because you looked so great in both of the outfits you had posted (and I have a similar black lace top that I bought over two years ago that I've only worn once). I think my favorites are still those two. I've worn it once so far with a boat neck white top, and I can't wait to wear it again!
