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.

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!

Skirts · Spring

Floral pencil skirt and blush shell.

I absolutely love the print and material on this skirt. The colors are much prettier in person than in the picture. It’s the perfect Spring/Summer skirt. It has blues, pinks, cream that make it easy to pair with many tops. The length on a petite size is a little longer than other Ann skirts, but I am below 5′ so a taller person might think the length is perfect. I happen to like the slight longer length on this skirt as it hits right at my knees.

The cropped blush shell is quickly running out. I bought the regular size xs. It is a cropped shell, so perfect for shorter torsos. The xs regular was the perfect length to wear tucked in or out. The blush color is beautiful almost like a pale peach. The top is light and soft and I could wear it all Spring/Summer long. They have other colors, but the blush was my favorite.

Chambray shirt and floral skirt

This chambray shirt was an unexpected find from the most unexpected place. I randomly walked through Aeropostale and saw this shirt it looked small to fit a petite frame, so I decided to try it on and it fit like a glove! Plus It’s on sale. I love chambray shirts, but they could get pricy or not fit well, so I was happy to find this one. It’s very soft to tuck into skirts, shorts or jeans and the sleeve length is perfect for smaller frames. Good find! The floral skirt is old, but I found a similar on sale and decided to include it. I like to pair chambray shirts with a pencil skirt. I think It’s a great look for Spring!

Memorial weekend finds

Polka dots

The polka dotted blouse is lovely and fits perfectly in xxs the sleeves can be buttoned up so the length is NOT a problem. The slim fit is perfect on the sides for a petite frame. The xs fit, but I liked the xxs much better. It is now buy one get one half off at Express, so make sure you take a look at the others.

Gingham

The gingham screw top is so pretty the color is much prettier in person. The material is a little wrinkly, but with softener and an anti wrinkle spray it holds perfectly. The xxs fits like a glove and it’s on sale.

Chelsea crossbody

The Chelsea crossbody is selling fast. My color is NOT even an option, but they have the classic stone on sale and also available in CLOUD color which is beautiful. Also the smooth leather Chelsea in wildflower color is absolutely beautiful. I saw it at the store and the color looks better in person. I recommend you give it a try it hints to lavender.

Slim fit portofino

This lovely slim fit portofino is beautiful in the rose color. It’s almost like a blush and less on the pink side. It fits perfectly in the slim fit portofino xxs. The length is perfect for petite frames you could wear as is or tucked in. The material feels silky and flowy and the fact that it’s sleeveless is perfect for warmer weather! The best parts is the prize it is on sale for $20.00 yay. It can be dressed up or down, so It’s very versatile. Enjoy!

Off the shoulder top

This lovely off the shoulder top is everything I want a perfect top to be. Unfortunately mine is old, but I found an identical one for you linked below. What I love about the style is that it can be worn in different ways (see pict on website for ideas). I love the stripes and the fabric. It’s light for the warmer days and can be worn with shorts, jeans, or skirts! The perfect Summer/Spring top to keep in my closet. I only wish I had gotten more colors.

Off the shoulder top

Ann taylor never disappoints me, this top is subtle and beautiful. It simple, classy and trendy. It can be worn with skirts, pants and shorts very versatile. A perfect classic basic top. The material is a bit stretchy, so don’t size up, in fact I wish I had sized down because it fits a bit weird when tucked in. I think the smaller one would have had less extra material to bulk at the waist when I tuck it in, but it’s not a deal breaker. It’s a top that can be worn to dress up a pretty skirt. I got the petitexs, but wish i had gotten the pxxs. It’s flattering for my shoulders and it comes in two different colors in petite and regular sizes.

Pinstripes shirt

This shirt has a pleating detail around the neck and the front that makes it unique and so feminine. It goes well with jeans…it’s a little boxy, but it doesn’t look bad. I haven’t tried it with skirts, so looking forward to playing with more looks that I can create. It is a regular size shirt, so the sleeves are a bit long (about two inches) but folded looks fine. I fit in the xs in this brand. A small would be too big and a xxs would a bit tight, so if in between sizes you may want to go to macy’s and try the maison jules items, usually the sizing is the same in their items. So, if it fits at the store chances are that you can always order the same size online and it’ll fit.

J.crew style

J.crew is soon becoming a favorite. I haven’t tried their petite sizes, but I looked through their sales rack and found this two lovely sweaters that fit perfectly in regular sizes. The argyle sweater is a ligt breathable cotton sweater with a soft feel and elegant look. Pair it with a necklace and jeans and it looks stylish and classy! The lightweight Jackie shell is lovely and timeless. I got both navy and black. It goes well with jeans and skirts dressed up or down. Both sweaters fit perfectly in the xs. Perfect length if you are a petite frame…not sure how they would fit a taller frame…my guess is that depending on preferences it may vary. Both still available online or check the sales at your nearest J.crew! Good luck!
