Happy Thursday! Today I am sharing an Easter Outfit for Petites. I love the crisp look and feeling of wearing a suit. I rarely get the opportunity to wear one, so when I see the chance, I take it! Easter is a perfect holiday to wear a suit. Especially a light colored suit in a lightweight material.
Normally I like to wear a dress for Easter festivities, but this year, Easter is early and there is still a little chill in the air. I like the versatility of a suit because you have a lightweight jacket built into the outfit.

J.Crew does a great job with stretch linen; it’s a spring and summer appropriate fabric and because it has the hint of stretch, the material is a bit more forgiving when it comes to wrinkling. I have a few pairs of the Kate Straight Leg Pant in different materials. I think the style is a great fit, and with a flat front, it’s very flattering. Available in Classic, Petite and Tall sizing, you’re sure to find a fit that works for you.
The stretch linen version I am wearing today is called Flax Ivory. I love the almost white color. It fits right in with the season and the occasion.
The Parke Blazer is one of J.Crew’s standard blazers. The style is available all year, in different fabrics and colors. This version, in stretch linen, matches perfectly with the Kate Straight Leg Pant. I love its simple, clean lines, single button and wide lapel.
Another thing I love about this suit is that you can go with any color top you want. I went with a bright pop of color. This guarana fruit-colored Short Sleeve Button Back Top in Everyday Crepe is on final sale, it also comes in light pink and white. Drapey and smooth crepe make this top comfortable and very easy to wear. Perfect for all seasons!
I have these Sarto Tracy Flats in cream color, and I love their comfortable style so much I went for them in orange too. I love colorful shoes! They’re great for a few reasons; they spark creativity. It’s a lot of fun when you can pull out one color of a print and highlight it by wearing shoes of the same color. Or if you’re shy about wearing color, colorful shoes are a great entry point.
This Puff Crossbody Bag: Woven Leather Edition has been in action a lot lately, and I suspect it will be all spring and summer long! For my look today, I unhooked the strap to make it a clutch. Such a versatile bag that is proving its worth by going with practically everything in my closet!

The outfit is very nice, but it could have been elevated to a more WOW factor with some jewelry (perhaps a longer statement necklace), sunglasses (always a staple in Beth’s wardrobe), perhaps an embellishment on her shoes, and maybe a hat.
Hi Jana, those are all great ideas for adding WOW factor! xo Kelly
I adore this fashion style!! and I’m glad to see there are more.
Thanks so much, Liz! xo Kelly
I have followed Beth for a while and incorporated her advice into my fashion considerations.
Great suit – I love the flexible sizing and styling options of separates. You look great! My favorite is the shoes – fabulous!!!
Thanks so much, Celine! The shoes are a lot of fun! Have a great day, xo Kelly
Very nice looks great on you.
Thank you, Sally! xo Kelly
That outfit is terrific on you Kelly! Love it!
Thank you so much, Nancy! xo Kelly
Love this outfit! So classy looking, I don’t like orange or look good in it, so I would change it to red. Love the shoes! Too bad they don’t come in red.
Hello Sherry, That’s the beauty of a suit, right? You can change up the top and shoes to whatever color you like best! The shoes have been around all year, with new color releases each season, so keep your eye on them, they may release red! Thanks for stopping by! xo Kelly
