Rainy Day Trench + Boots

It's been really rainy this past week but I guess I can't hate on it too much - here in CA, we need it because of the drought. I thought I'd share what I've been wearing to stay as dry as possible. 

Banana Republic Sweater sz PXS, H&M Jeggings sz 2, David & Young Blanket Scarf, Forever21 Trench Coat sz S, Hunter Tour Boots sz 5 in Hunter Green

This Forever21 double-breasted trench coat that my mom bought me for Christmas years ago is actually coming in handy. It's my only one right now but I'm surprised at the quality of it being from Forever21. It's a size S, which normally I'm hesitant to get because I'm closer to a size XS, but it doesn't look too big or too long on me.

I've also been really liking this mint/gray/beige David & Young blanket scarf. I got it for Christmas this past December and it was sold at Nordstrom BP but is not available anymore. It's very thick and warm and I love wrapping it around myself sometimes when I'm relaxing at home or on long flights for business trips. This definitely won't be the only post with this scarf.

You might be wondering about how the Hunter Tour Boots are. I just bought these a month or two ago. These are my first pair of Hunters and I owe it to Extra Petite for recommending them and giving her full review. I feel like I'm very close to her height and size so I got them after she raved about them. I got them in size 5 and they fit well for my typically size 4-5 feet. I chose Hunter Green because I tend to wear blacks and grays on rainy days, so I figured a touch of color would make my rainy day outfits pop a little. So far, they're great. I have thin legs and have such a hard time finding boots that have smaller circumferences. Not too wide and especially from the front, they look like they fit perfectly. You can probably see from the pictures that there is still some room but believe me, after all the tall boots I've tried in my life, this is still considered a narrow circumference--narrow enough for me to keep them! They hit a little bit below my knee but for being such a tall boot, they're pretty light. Not flats or sandals light of course, but light for tall rain boots. Overall, I'm happy with my Hunter purchase and hope California gets more rain so I can put them to more use because they weren't cheap!

Also, these H&M jeggings are one of my favorites lately. I got them from a friend and they're in size US 2. They have an elastic waist, faux front pockets, and real back pockets. I'm not a huge fan of elastic waist and faux pockets but love the dark wash and the way it hugs my slim legs which is hard to find so I couldn't resist. At a size 2, they're a little on the tighter side but I can wear them for 8-10 hours to work and they're not that bad. I'm also currently on the hunt for good fitting jeans that won't break the bank so stay tuned for that. 

Hope you enjoyed this post. As you'll notice in my future posts, a lot of my clothing cannot be linked because I either got lucky and randomly found it at a store and it's not available online or the items are no longer sold online because it's sold out or too old. I'll try my best to find similar items but I'm trying to be careful to link only petite-friendly alternatives for my fellow petite ladies out there. 

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter for post updates. If you have any recommendations for petite trench coats (in beige/camel color) or jeans that hug the legs that aren't too tight on the waist, leave me a comment below! I'm on the lookout for those :)
