Petite Outfit: Theory Caprine Jacket

Last week, I found a few tiny items by Theory, but this is the only one I ended up getting. I’m obsessed with jackets, so when I find one that’s short, cropped, and fitted, I just can’t help myself.

Here’s the Theory Caprine jacket in size 00:

Top: H&M, size XS
Jeans: Paige Laurel Canyon, size 24 (hemmed and waist taken in)
Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag Mini Mini, Red Berry (here) (here) (and here)
Belt: Vintage snakeskin belt (holes added)
Necklace: Turquoise with coral pendant

I was able to get the jacket at a pretty good discount using the pre-sale option for the Bloomingdales Private Sale last week. The jacket was 15% off, plus I got $25 off for every $100, and an extra 10% off for opening a Bloomingdales credit card. Not too bad.

There’s been some interest in the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mini over at Diary of a Shopper, so I wanted to take this opportunity to give her a little camera time. She’s the itty bitty version of the famous Morning After Bag, which is way too big and chunky for me to carry. Even the MAB Mini is a bit too big, so when Rebecca Minkoff came out with the Mini Mini, I was really excited to finally find a perfectly sized version of such a cool handbag. More after the jump!

Back to the Caprine jacket. It is a light weight, unlined linen blend, which makes it a great spring and summer jacket. It is a military inspired style, single breasted, with three functional pockets, and a waist tie. The sleeves are bracelet length, which make them a little short for me at full length, but I like them pushed up anyways. The size 00 fits me perfectly, and the style is different than anything else I have in my closet, so picking it up was a no-brainer.

I styled it with a vintage belt, but here it is with the tie it came with.

Now for a little jewelry tip: turquoise and coral look really great together. The necklace and the pendent came from two completely different places, and my mom suggested I put them together. Once I did, I can’t wear these pieces any other way. It’s my favorite spring and summer time necklace.

    I like the cut of that jacket a lot…a bit different from their typical blazer style jackets. I like where it hits on you…it looks quite cropped on the model and not as nice! And the included belt holes are a huge plus (not to mention the placement of the belt loops are perfectly at your waist!). You can really change up the look with a new belt!

    I agree with PAG. I love the belt holes myself. Very easy to change a whole new look with a different belt of various colors. The jacket looks very good in you, as if is made for your body! :)

    Thanks ladies! I was amazed at the fit too. The style of belt loops gives it a cool military/safari look, and they're perfectly placed. Thank you, Theory, for once again giving me that warm fuzzy feeling of something that fits!

    This looks fabulous on you. Love, love how you paired the skinny belt and Mini Mini red bag with the look.

    Yay, better shots of the mini mini! The jacket is super cute- I love that it has belt loops with a matching tie. It looks so cute with the skinny belt too.

    The jacket looks much better on you than it does on the model :) Ah the magical warm fuzzies when you try on something that fits… if only I can afford!

    Just found your blog- what a wonderful site you have. I'm pretty tiny myself- (4'11.5"), so I'll definitely be reading. Keep up the great work!

    N – I LOVED the tangerine when I first saw it, but I slacked on picking it up and it was all sold out. =( I would love to see an outfit post with your Mini Mini!

    thegoodgirlgoneblog – Thanks! Your outfit posts on your blog are great! I'd never guess you were under 5'!
