Pink satin mix cami

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. They also have other colors available  it makes it hard to choose because they are all very pretty. As far as sizing I went with my size at BR petite 0. It fits perfectly for petite frames. 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…

Tops 2017

Stripes and bows

I love this two tops. They are so classy and comfortable. I got p00 and they fit perfectly. I usually wear p0, but the p00 was the right fit this time. They will be stables in my closet! Banana Republic has 50% off on top of sale price and free shipping! Perfect to grab your favorite Riley fit tops 🙂

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.

Green little blazer

I found this cute blazer and felt in love with it. The color, the material, the fit all of it is very nice! Even though it is cropped the regular size actually fits like a regular jacket, so if your petite size is sold out the regular size fits really well just slightly longer on the sleeve and bottom. I actually wished that I had bought the regular 0 instead of petite 0 because I would have liked the length longer rather than the cropped look. Bit, It’s still a beautil blazer that can be paired with jeans and skirts! The color is much prettier in person than the photo. Overall, a beautiful classic blazer!

Red is the new black

Red pants: I found this pants at loft on sale in a beautiful red color and I couldn’t pass them. They are soft and comfortable and stretchy! I got them in a p00 and although they were snug the girl who was helping me recommended that I don’t size up because they’ll stretch. She was right. I put them on when I got home to be sure they would stretch and after a few mints they felt perfectly fitted. If you like a looser look go up one size otherwise this baby will stretch a bit. The color is lovely it looks better in person and I can wear them all through Summer and Fall. The inseam is 26inches so for me they aren’t cropped, but perfect length! They have both the Marissa fit and Julie fit and I got marissa, but normally wear julie fit. I included both for you.

Red Jacket: I found this jacket at Banana Republic on sale plus 50%off. Yay. It’s linen, so perfect for cooler summer nights. The color is lovely. Not too bright. It’s a little lose, but the belt solves that. It’s really cute and once you figure out how to place the ruffles it looks great. I’d say though that if you want to wear it open the ruffles don’t drape. So, It’s a cute jacket, but needs to be belted to look great. The sleeves seem about an inch too long, but they could easily be rolled. Goes great with Jeans.

Tops 2017

Pink and black sleeveless

Express is having a sale and this pink top is lovely. It’s a soft pink and I really like the cutout shoulder detail. It’s sleeveless which makes it a perfect summer top. It can be dressed up or casual wear. The material is soft to be tucked in, but aslo short enough to leave out.

The Barcelona cami is reversible! One side is gray and the other is black. It runs a little small so size up. The material is flowy and could also be tucked in. I think this one is a nice staple cami to keep in the closet!
