My first Theory item is this white skirt. My sister has been obsessed with Theory for years and  I always wondered what the deal was. I have the matching blazer for an all white ensemble for it but I am still un-decided on it so I paired it with this military tweed jacket I found at Forever 21.  I never got into the whole “military” look only because it’s so trendy and didn’t think I could pull it off but here it is……!!!

This jacket was way too cute to pass up and it fits! The 3/4 sleeves helps in not having to do alterations because if the sleeves were too long- like most F21 blazers are – I would have passed because I definitely wouldn’t spend money tailoring a F21 blazer.
 
Here’s the back of the jacket- how cute is that?? There is a dark gray ribbon bow that adds a little feminine flair to a military jacket. LOVE this detail!
Jacket: Forever 21 Tweed Cropped Blazer – size small (similar here and here )
Cami: Forever 21 cami in charcoal (comes in a variety of diff. colors and so darn affordable)
Skirt: Theory white skirt- size 0     
                                                              
Shoes: Aldo Hesterly Pumps -on sale was $80 now only $39.98 and they still have size 5 left!!!(or similar here and on sale)
Leather gray pumps for under $40?? And these run small so for the ladies who have trouble finding pumps that won’t slip when you walk- these are great!

This Theory white skirt is a little big in the fit for my taste…the waist fits okay but the hips and the A-line style is a little to roomy for me. Now that I think about it- I should have looked at what size they had on the dummie- it’s usually the smallest size! I even took the white matching blazer off the dummie since it was a petite- didn’t even think to look at the skirt. I figured a 0 was the smallest size but now I’m thinking maybe there was a 00..darn it!!! I was so excited to find a 0- I grabbed it without even thinking twice!!! The best part about this skirt is that it’s not see-thru! And it’s not lined – which was surprising to me. Most of my white lined skirts- you have to be extra cautious because of the see-thru material. This one is a thicker cotton material.

Shop this look:

Jacket:
1. Express Blazer – this is so cute and comes in 00 and 0
2. Arden B. Military Blazer – comes in 2 colors and the sizes I can attest run small just like Bebe
Skirt:
1. Bebe White Skirt – dirt cheap and they still have several sizes available
2. Theory White Skirt – similar to the one I am wearing
Hopefully I will make it back to the store and see if they have a 00 instead. I just love a white skirt in the Spring and Summer….it always makes your legs look tan- which you can’t go wrong!!!

Here is a close-up of the jacket for you to see the details and color. The gray/silver buttons are too cute. And this coat isn’t TOO military so it’s not scary looking on a petite frame. Click the image below to shop!

Sometimes Forever 21 has some cute stuff and this is on sale!!!
