Linen Layers // Olive jeans + low block heeled pumps

olive jeans long cardigan petite fashion clothing

Sole Society Katarina pumps sz 5 (back in stock!) c/o, Sole Society scarf c/o, Halogen linen cardigan xxs petite (also worn here), H&M petite jeans sz 4 (fits like a 24-25), BR cami xxs petite (older ivory color)

I hope some of you got to enjoy a few days of unseasonably warm weather! I’ve been loving olive as a transitional color – it goes equally well with black for winter, as it does with soft hues like light beige.

I’m excited to partner with Sole Society again and share that one of my favorite shoe styles from prior years is back! The Katarina suede pumps are a flattering, comfortable style that’s walking-friendly (heel is under 2 inches). You can see them on me against bare legs in this post and in this post (photos # 3 and 4).

The stacked low block heels on these are a stable alternative to skinny high heels, and the pointed toe shape is visually lengthening. Fit is true to size (I take my usual sz 5), although the front toe area runs on the narrow side, so perhaps try half size up if you have wider feet. This year’s colors include light camel, a sunny yellow, and a light blue.

For those of you who asked about these skinny jeans, the fit of a sz 2 petite is consistent with a snug size 24 in other denim brands. I sized up for some extra room, and found the sz 4 petite to fit in between a standard 24 to 25. Measurements of sz 4 petite: 26.5″ inseam, 8″ mid rise, 13″ across the waist, 16″ across the hips, and 4.75″ across the ankle opening.

    I have been loving this warm weather but it sure does feel like a tease being that it is only February! I love your outfit especially the heels!

    Olive is such a favurite colour of mine to wear. I love green, but I also love muted neutrals, and it’s the cutest mix of the shades. Love your outfit, girl! 🙂

    Truly love this outfit!Casually comfortable and stylish. Could you please tell me what color the cardigan is, smoke pink or tan cobblestone? It seems more pink here but tan in the earlier post. Thanks!

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite February 23, 2018 at 5:54 pm

      Thanks Annmarie! It’s the tan cobblestone color.

    I was just eyeing Paige Denim’s Verdugo Ankle Petite in Sahara Green, but these H&M jeans are a steal by comparison! Thanks for saving me $150!

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite February 23, 2018 at 5:56 pm

      Hi Susan- I actually have the Paige ankle jeans in green from a few years ago and really like them! I cannot fit into them anymore, but the few pair of Paige jeans I do have last me years of wash and year. I was pretty impressed by the H&M option for the price point but the fabric isn’t as soft and stretchy as some Paige styles. Let me know how you like ’em if you end up getting them!

  • Reply Jae February 23, 2018 at 5:59 pm

    I love those colors together! The olive jeans look great on you.

  • Reply Kathy February 23, 2018 at 6:53 pm

    I love the neutral tones in this outfit! I’ve been eyeing those shoes since I saw them in a previous post. So glad they have them back in stock. Are you wearing the taupe or light camel colour? Congratulations to both you and your husband!!

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite February 26, 2018 at 7:29 pm

      Hi Kathy – Sole Society sent me the new light camel to feature in these photos. In my older blog posts from last year, I’m wearing the taupe which I had purchased. The two colors look similar but the light camel is a touch lighter.

  • Reply Charlie February 24, 2018 at 12:52 am

    I love all the soft colors in this outfit! So beautiful for spring!

    Love the neutral color scheme of this outfit, Jean. How’s the length on the BR cami?

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite February 26, 2018 at 7:29 pm

      It’s good! It hits me at the upper hip.

  • Reply Petite Teacher February 24, 2018 at 12:20 pm

    Hi Jean. Super shoes. Very apt for teachers too, because of the low heel. I am always looking for outfits that are stylish and comfortable for my work and this whole outfit would be a perfect choice. Thanks for the inspiration. Love, Lieske

    Your outfit looks cool. I like the casual yet stylish look in it.

    Very cool post! I feel like I’m too short for pointed-toe flats, but maybe having a low-block heel would be better for me. Thanks Jean!

    Cute shoes! I love that it has a lower heel. I can see it styled with so many pieces. Sole society has so many amazing shoes!

    I love this outfit! And I’ll be checking out the H&M jeans pronto, as I need something for this transitional season when we have everything from snow to crocuses. What breaks my heart is that Sole Society no longer carries anything in size 4.5. Can you relay a plea to these folks that they reinstate the smaller sizes they used to carry? I’d buy the ones you’re showing in a flash!

    I love the colors in this outfit! The olive green pants are perfect!! It all just flows so well together!!
