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.

Bottoms · Spring

White shorts and off the shoulder top

I have been wearing and washing this shorts since I got them. They are so comfortable and soft. I got the 0 regular, but they are lose on me so I wish I had gotten the 00. They stretch, so if they fit snugged don’t size up. They are the perfect length  for petite frames and the waistline is perfect for smaller torsos.

The off the shoulder top looks beautiful with shorts and jeans. My color is sold out, but still available in 4 other colors! I really like the tie detail that can go on the front or the back to give the top a fitted look!

Jeans never go out of style

The hardest part of being below 5′ tall is finding a perfect fitting pair of Jeans. I actually tried on the cropped and ankle lenght at Express and they fit perfectly. If you are taller than 5′ they will be a bit cropped. I recommend go to the store and tried them on as each fit on jeans may vary a little. The ones that worked for me are the short ankle and short cropped. They fit exactly at my ankle. They are very soft and comfortable. While younare there che k out their tops. Although they don’t carry petite sizes at the store they have different styles that can fit a petite frame. I usually opt for xxs, xs, 0, 2. Pettite sizes are available online and do fit much better, but once in a while I get lucky and find regular sizes that fit. Good luck!
