Thank you Ann Taylor for partnering together on this post!
Every spring I refresh my closet and spring jackets are one of my favorite ways to look and feel put together. This chambray trench coat is a sophisticated alternative to a regular denim jacket. I was hoping to find this jacket in petites at my local stores but surprisingly size 0 regular fit me for a relaxed fit (measurements provided below).
This floral eyelet skirt is easily another one of my favorite new arrivals. I took my usual size 0P and the slit in the back makes it easy to walk without being constricting. It has functional pockets but I chose to keep them shut because I wanted a more streamlined look when sitting down. The measurements of size 0P for the skirt are as follows: 28″ waist, 34″ hips, 22″ overall length.
The measurements of size 0 regular for the chambray trench coat are as follows: 14.5″ shoulders, 38″ bust, 23.5″ length, 24″ sleeves. Note that I sewed the front gunflaps down which took only a few minutes and a few hand stitches per side. I also wanted the collar to be more pronounced so I sewed the points closer but you can probably iron them down for a sharper crease.
For reference I am 5′ 2.5″ and 107 pounds (you can also refer to my measurements here).

I wanted this striped ponte flare sleeve dress (review here) but it sold out in store in all sizes. I am loving this striped eyelet flare sleeve top (also available in white) which I reviewed here. It runs true to size. I was looking for this lilac shirred shoulder tee but two local stores didn’t carry it in petites. I tried on the similar yellow version (review here) and I fit the next size down for a better fit. The color of this gorgeous yellow flutter sheath dress (also available in white) is more vibrant in person and the material is thicker so it’s not see through. I tried on size 00P which fit like a loose size 0P (you can see my review in my Instagram stories highlight under ‘recent try-ons’). I also loved this eyelet trim bell sleeve top which fits true to size and this floral eyelet full skirt which I found runs one size larger since size 00P fit more like size 0P.
The step-hem jeans (review here) I recently picked up are now $39.99 and this pink bell sleeve top (review here) is now $24.99! This step hem tank (last seen here) is now on final sale for $12.44 and I exchanged size XXS regular for XSP but it still fits loose so I may need to try size XXSP.
