Shoes

New Balance running heaven!

I was due for a pair of running shoes and I tried many pairs and looked at many stores. Mostly it was a fail due to the lack of available sizes. However, this one fit in a 5.5 and I never wanted to take them off. They are very comfortable and they look so clean and stylish. I love all the colors, but the tan was available at the store and I plan on ordering the grey online. The shoe is like walking on clouds. I wear them every day on my trail walk with my dog and I always forget that I even have shoes on. The size runs a little small, so go a half size up! Enjoy 😉

Sunset necklace

This lovley is on sale! Check out Banana Republic’s website for many other options. This one I bought recently to wear for a weddding. It matched my dress perfectly. It looks elegant with the tones of yellow, peach and taupe. The chain is gold color. It’s a very delicate piece to make any outfit stand out and elegant. I hope you like 🙂

Classic trench

This trech I posted a couple of months ago, however I saw that it is almost gone. So, I decided to repost it since the xxs petite still available. This one is true to its name Classic! It’s also waterproof and perfect for under 5′ frames. If you need more info see my older post under coats! It has a belt, but I forgot to include it in the photo since I wear it without it!

Coats

Short parka

Weather is changing in the midwest. The tepms have been in the 60s and honestly I like it because I can wear my trench coat and parkas. This one parka is NOT petite, but I saw it at the store and I was surprised how well it fits. The sleeves are longer than I’d like, but I think this Parka looks better with rolled sleeves anyways. The body length and fit is perfect for smaller frames. I got it in size 2. The strings add a touch to cinch it at the waist for a  more fitted look. It has a hood and twomfront pockets with ziper. It can be easily worn with skinny dark jeans or blue skinny jeans.  If you are taller than 5′ this may fit you even better. However, for a petite frame (under 5′) is not bad at all. Enjoy!

Petite lady day coat

I love  this lady day coat! And I highly recommend it. It makes any outfit look stylish and well put together. It runs on the smaller side, but I opted Not to size up because I am very small and any extra material could overwhelm my short stature. However, if you are 5′ or taller you can totally size up for extra room especially if you need layers under. I decided to purchase the neutral color to wear for Spring and Fall. I don’t plan to wear it in the Chicago winters…as I have other coats for below zero temps. The material of this coat is super nice and the thinsulate adds a little extra warmth, but I wouldn’t say it’s meant for weather under 50°. Then again, I only weight 100lbs so I need more insulation in colder tempts.

Unto the measurements. I ordered the p0, but the p2 would have allowed me for layering. Here are the measurements provided by the amazing costumer service! The first # is P0 and the second # P2 😉

Bust 33.5″, 34.5″  waist 29.25″, 30.25″ sleeve 29.5″, 29.88″  shoulder 14.75″, 15″

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 🙂

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 😉

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…
