Schoolboy blazer in camel

I have been waiting for this blazer to stock in my color (camel) I love this blazer. The color is closer to the first photo. The material is high quality and the buttons are metal. The linning is perfect to fold the sleeves. The fit is so flattering in petite frames. It is much shorter than my Rhodes blazer. The best part is that is on sale right now! I have the p0 but also tried on the p2 and both fit. I kept the p0 because I don’t plan to layer thick sweaters and the sleeve length fits better my sleeve length is 22″. If you have questions on measurements don’t hesitate to ask.

Gathered pop-over shirt

This top was a surprise, the reviews online were negative, but decided to try it anyways. I loved it. It’s the perfect light cotton material it does not feel cheap like reviewers posted. It does run large, so order a size down. It’s lovely to wear with white skinny jeans or under a blazer. The fit is not supposed to be fitted, but a lose flowy top.  Plus 50% on top of sale price! If you wear jcrew p2 or p0 then the p00 will fit you 🙂

Textured skirt

I love everything about this skirt. The print, color size! It’s perfect for petites. I could have gone with the 4 and 6. Both fit on the waist just one is shorter than the other. It can be paired with so many tops and sweaters. This one is a classic piece! Enjoy

Tanks and shorts

I love everything about this two tops. The green one it’s soft and short for us petites. The color looks lovely with high waisted shorts blue or white. It runs true to size and washes well (hamdwash) Does not wrinkle easy.  My other summer to go piece is the pink pastel wide strap tank from Zara! This one is so soft and pretty. I have it in a few colors very summer I buy one! They wash easy and are fitted which I love! Wear with any shorts and you are summer ready 🙂 I bought the small because I like it fitted. Both under $20.00 😉

This beautiful cami is so soft and pretty. It is perfect material for warm summer days! I got the pink one it’s a true soft pink. A lot more beautiful in person than in pictures.

I don’t even have to tuck it in because the length is perfect. It washes well. I hand washed and hang dried it. It maintained its shape. On sale right now! Yay…

Coats

Classic trench coat

This trench coat is petite friendly! I ordered the pxxs and it fits perfectly. The material is nice and not stiff. The details on the neckline is very nice. The trench is good quality and well made. The strap is a little longer than other coats, but not a deal breaker and perfect if you’d like to tie it like a bow! The sleeve length is perfect and the body length not too short or long. It is lined and beautiful! It’s a bit snug on the shoulders, but I have bigger shoulder and my arms more muscle than other petites. The chest and waist are perfect. I can wear a thin sweater under perfectly. I will be wearing it through chilly Summer nights through Fall! It will have to be steamed and dry cleaned only, but it’s worth it for such a pretty trench 🙂

Petite Rhodes Blazer Jcrew

Summer sales are perfect opportunity to find blazers at a nice price range. This navy Rhodes blazer from Jcrew is absolutely perfect. The material is wool, but it’s light enough for early fall or chilly summer days. I loved the look, pockets, buttons (could be better) but not a deal braker.  The material is almost like a tweed feel, but it feels and looks nice. The style of this blazer is a longer look and perfect for casual wear with skinny jeans! I can’t wait to wear it. I love it. And, for the sale price you can’t go wrong. I will get a lot of wear out of this blazer and I will be purchasing more jcrew styles in the future. As far as sizing….i got the p00, p0, p2. I ended up keeping the petite 0. I usually wear regular xxs and 00 in tops and skirts. However, the petite 00 was snug on me. The p0 was perfect fit! Sleeves  fit perfectly, body length perfectly, and waist and bust perfectly with room to layer a sweater under. If you wear A cup bra the p00 may be ok. For B and C cups the p0 or p2 is a better fit.

I also tried the schoolboy blazer at jcrew factory and the p2 was a perfect fit to layer a sweater under and shorter body length. For the Regent (similar length as the rhodes) and the 00 regular was a good fit with no room to layer a sweater and it has a straight look rather than trim like the Rhodes and schoolboy. I ended up choosing the Rhodes for now. I linked all three for you. If you have questions don’t hesitate to ask. I know that finding the perfect fit could be tricky in blazers. And the sale price is too good to pass.

Feeling light and summery

I saw this skirt and top and I knew they belonged together. The pairing makes such a cute outfit. And you could dress it down by adding flats or heels. A piece of jewelry could add style.

The skirt is very light and flowy. The material is very thin, so plan to wear a slip under it. It’s perfect for summer since the material is light! The color is very close to the one on the photo. The material although nice and flowy could become wrinkled easily, so spray with antiwrinkle and problem solved. It’s a midi length so it’s a longer look for me from my pencil skirts. It passes below my knees about three inches.

The top is my favorite. The material is thin, but not see through a nude bra is fine for me. It’s fitted, so true to size for a fitted look or sized up for a relaxed look. The collar is made of lace which makes it so unique and pretty. I hand wash and hand dry mine to make sure that the lace doesn’t loose shape or wrinkles. I haven’t had any problems with it. The color of the lace looks ivory on the photo, but it’s white.
