Tulip Picking // Striped midi dress + White denim jacket

petite maternity fashion casual outfit ideas

J.Crew striped dress xs (3 colors), J.Crew denim jacket xxs petite c/o (shrunken fit), similar hat, similar belt (kids size L), current version of my earrings

This week we made our annual trip down to Wicked Tulips, a little pick-your-own tulip farm in Rhode Island (~ an hour south of Boston). I blogged about them last spring and hope some of you were able to go! Don’t be fooled by these pictures – it was quite packed with families and fellow photo-enthusiasts, but we did get a peaceful corner of the field to ourselves occasionally. Tickets are required for entry and sold out lighting fast this year, so if you’re interested in going next spring, definitely mark your calendars to check around early April.

With Memorial Day weekend coming up, I’m partnering with J.Crew to share some packing favorites for a mini getaway! I went the comfy, wardrobe basics route here:

Navy striped dress – this 100% cotton dress is a classic, freshened up by a midi length, side skirt vents, and crisscross strap back (yay for adjustable-length straps!). Fit is true to size, so I went 1 up to comfortably accommodate my belly.

Leather belt – great for visually breaking up prints and accentuating the waistline (even a shifting one…). I’m wearing an old kids one, but this leather boys belt looks similar. Check the online reviews, as someone helpfully left measurements for the belt in boys size S through XL!

White denim jacket – a versatile piece for layering when the weather cools at night, or on breezy boat rides! A few of the reviews say sizing runs small, and I would agree the cut is “shrunken fit” in style. My usual jacket size (xxs petite) is fitted on me and runs smaller throughout than the blue denim jacket I featured recently.

Summer print bikini – So many cute options in their mix-and-match swimsuit selection, with sizing starting in 32a / xxs and different cuts to flatter different bust types! Here’s the updated version of the french tie bikini top (has light, removable padding) that I wore back in this post.

    Hi Jean – I love the timeless style you put together on this post + the cutest baby bump 💛✨
    I’ve purchased the recommended “Crewcuts Boys Leather Belt (Brown)” in size XL, and it’s perfect. It’s very comparable to “Classic Buckle Belt (I have black)” in size S from JCF.

    I’ve purchased the recommended “Crewcuts Boys Leather Belt (Brown)” in size XL, & it’s perfect. It’s very comparable to “Classic Buckle Belt (I have black)” in size S from JCF in terms of sizing!! I loved scoring quality brown color one at discounted price since it’s made for kids. I hope other petite ladies & gents can take advantage of this idea.

    Where can I get those shoes? I’m always on the hunt for neutral 2” block heel sandals that don’t show too much of my toes. Thank you!
