The fit of the coat is boxy but doable. The upside is that it leaves you a lot of room to layer. One of the biggest issues I have when it comes to coats are the sleeves. They are so expensive to tailor and I prefer not to spend money altering F21 pieces. I have short arms so I was thrilled when the sleeves actually fit! If you have longer arms, the sleeves will be 3/4″ long. To combat the wide sleeves, I adjusted the buckle to the last hole. See it on What Jess Wore.
Happy April 1st! I’ve been anxiously waiting to post this outfit because it’s one of my favorites! White jeans, mint, polka dots with a cropped trench coat is my ideal Spring outfit. I posted a sneak peek on Instagram a couple weeks ago so make sure to follow me there!
I’m loving this cropped trench so much! It’s simple, classic and very affordable. Every now and then, Forever 21 comes out with a great item and this is one of them plus it’s petite friendly! As much as I love my Ann Taylor cropped trench from last Fall (see HERE and HERE), it was always missing a couple key elements that I wanted. Whether it’s cropped or not, a classic trench coat is a must have. In case you’re in the market for one, here are some great options for you to choose from:

The color of this Forever 21 cropped trench coat is just the right shade (not too light or dark). It has all the traditional elements that I like: shoulder epaulets, belted cuffs and back venting. Unfortunately, it’s partially lined (only the sleeves) but what do you expect for the price? The material is a cotton and polyester blend. It definitely needs a good steaming when you first get it (very wrinkly). The best part is, it has functional pockets! Yay! They are sewn shut so be sure to free them.
Measurements for size small: shoulder to shoulder 15″, armpit to armpit 19″, sleeves 19″, sleeve width 5.5″, total length 21″
Mint and polka dots is one of my favorite combinations. This J.Crew dot popover shirt is several years old and the most similar top I could find is this one HERE. Now let’s talk about this purse! This Loeffler Randall rider bag was a recent purchase from Shopbop during their big event sale. I love the structured design and the color is exactly what I’ve been looking for. The leather is buttery soft and the size fits all of my essentials. You can buy it HERE. I’ve also rounded up some other neutral handbags for you to consider:

These Paige Denim crop white jeans were a recent score at Nordstrom Rack. I can’t believe I found them in my size for half the price of retail. Woo hoo! I know I’ve said this a million times but white jeans are a must! Here are some options for you:
