Fall Essentials: booties, plaid & cashmere

boston blogger casual fall outfit ideas

Moon River skirt XS (fits perfectly), cashmere sweater xs, Karl Lagerfeld suede booties 5, Marc New York leather jacket xs (sleeves folded under 2″)

While I know some of you are trying to stay cool during late summer heat waves, here in New England it’s already starting to feel like sweaters and booties weather! I love browsing Neiman Marcus Last Call this time of year because quality fall essentials from name brand designers are always popping up at a great value. And since my favorite season is just around the corner, I’m excited to partner with Neiman Marcus Last Call and ShopStyle to share some chic petite-friendly pieces for fall!

Moon River plaid skirt (under $50!)
This felted plaid skirt with faux leather trim oozes Autumn and is surprisingly petite friendly! XS is a perfect comfortable fit on me, and I’ve reached for this several times already paired with browns and burgundy layers (will show more styling ideas soon).

If you’re looking for dresses and skirts that fit on the smaller side, I would also check out the Bardot selection! I tried on this navy midi lace dress in xxs and it fit like a glove (smaller than most 00’s) – petite ladies could rock it as a maxi for weddings or other special occasions.

Neiman Marcus cashmere mock neck sweater
A cashmere staple at a great price. Love that the mock neckline will provide warmth and look good layered without swallowing up my short neck. The fit of this sweater in XS on me has a little room and slouch, but is not oversized.

Karl Lagerfeld suede booties (also worn here)
Size 5 fits TTS, the low block heels are easy to walk and chase after a little one in, and the overall boots were comfortable with no breaking in needed. I tried on these as well as a similar Stuart Weitzman pair and actually preferred the KL due to a narrower ankle opening and a more sleek look on the feet overall! There is quite a selection though for Stuart Weitzman Boots for less starting in size 5 and 5.5 – just filter at the top for your size!

Marc New York leather jacket
This leather jacket is best suited for someone taller than me, as the sleeves will need shortening on a petite frame (I have them folded about 2″ under here). It is very slim fitting however due to a large stretch panel on each side of the torso, as well as along the inner length of the sleeves.

    I ordered the Karl Lagerfeld booties and I was super sad that they looked huge in the ankles! Apparently my ankles are extra thin. 🙄 I have scoured your blog for booties and have tried many of the recommended styles, but I always end up with a bootie that looks like it would hold two of my ankles. Can you recommend a brand or style with the very smallest ankle opening?

    Me too. I love dressing for the Fall. Jean, that’s a new leather jacket for you. You usually wear one that’s a little more snug. I’ve tried that one from Nordstrom and it doesn’t look good on me, but I think this one looks like it might. I like the asymmetrical line up the front. I read your note about the sleeves; I’ll have to do the same. Thanks. btw: love that skirt on you!!!!
