Growing up, my mom always reminded me to drink milk since I still had a lot of growing to do. Well, I don’t think the milk helped much because I reached 5’2 around 6th grade and that was it for me. How did I go from being one of the tallest to one of the shortest in the span of one year?!  I used to think that being short was a bad thing, but I’ve really come to embrace and own my short stature. If you think about it, there are a lot of pros to being petite! For one, my legs don’t get as cramped on a plane and two, I can wear any heels I want and still be shorter than potential dates.

Yes, being petite definitely has its perks, but it can also pose problems when shopping for clothes. A lot of my favorite stores don’t have a petite section so the trendy “cropped” jeans are just jeans, jacket sleeves go way past the wrist, and the cute mini skirt? Not so mini when it falls just above your knees.

If you’re a petite gal and have experienced some of the same struggles, you need to check out Petite Studio – a womenswear brand created by and made for petites. I’m floored by their current collection and continue to be amazed by each new arrival. They offer the perfect mix of on-trend pieces and classic staples, but the biggest thing to take away from here is their quality. Quality in their clothes, ethics, and overall genuineness (check out their Christmas Toy Drive here).

I’m wearing the Staten Light Tan Coat here and fell in love with the minimalist design and the touch of elegance with the draped lapels. I love that I can easily style the coat for a casual or dressy look, and the beautiful light tan color matches with everything! I went for more of a casual outfit with this striped navy blouse and navy pinstripe trousers. For the shoes, I’m wearing nude bow flats, but I think white sneakers would’ve also looked great for this look!

Today’s outfit is a fairly casual one. I own about a million cardigans but this navy one from Forever 21 is far different from all of them. I really love how long it is and the zipper detail instead of buttons is a nice change. Paired with the cardigan are these patchwork slim jeans from H&M.  In addition to the distressed details and dark patches on both legs, these jeans feature a really cute raw hem that I, unfortunately, had to roll up because of my short legs!

The star of this outfit has to be the Louis Vuitton bag courtesy of Trendlee, a great spot to find pre-owned luxury designer bags from brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chloe, Celine, Chanel, Gucci, etc. The selection is massive and all of the bags are highly discounted with guaranteed authenticity. I’ve seen a lot of the same bags that are popularly worn by bloggers (like the Chloe bags) on the site, so this is perfect for anyone who is wanting to invest in a classic or trendy bag while also saving tons of money. My biggest concern about purchasing something pre-owned is always the condition of the item. Thankfully, the site lists the condition of the bag, any imperfections, and provides plenty of high-quality pictures of the actual bag so you know exactly what to expect and skip over anything that doesn’t meet your standards.

Menswear Inspired + Casual Trench Coat with Century 21

ft-2

 

It’s finally here! Thanksgiving is just a few hours away and I couldn’t be more excited to stuff my belly with delicious food and spend quality time with family. I find that Black Friday shopping is the best way to alleviate the painfully full feeling after an enormous meal and it’s really a win-win situation with all the great sales!

And speaking of sales, I partnered up with Century 21 to showcase outfits created with items I picked from their website. If you live in the New York area, you might have heard of and/or already shopped at their stores. If you aren’t too familiar, Century 21 is a department store offering tons of designer brands at really incredible prices. There’s something for everyone, so it’s a great place to shop for family, friends, significant others, children, the home, or yourself! I definitely recommend checking out their website and taking advantage of some of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales taking place this weekend!

This first outfit is menswear inspired with this open blazer that features leather patches on the elbows. The blouse underneath is all about the details with ruffles along the neckline and sleeves, velvet trims, and velvet self-tie. These 7 For All Mankind jeans were such a steal. I’ve been looking for straight cropped black pants with a raw hem and these are perfect, albeit a little too long. Nothing a quick hem can’t fix! I think I was most excited about these pointed burgundy oxfords. The dark red color is beautiful and the zipper detail, in place of lace-ups, gives the shoe a modern vibe.

The second look is definitely more of an everyday casual look. I love this open front trench and, again, I’ve been wanting a similar style coat. I constantly debated picking up a more affordable one in the $50 and under range. I’m so glad I didn’t. The discounted price for this trench (originally $218) was $44 and the overall quality significantly differs from the cheaper alternatives. Also from Century 21 are these gunmetal/silver loafers with fringe details. Not only are these incredibly versatile for wearing casually or dressed up, the metallic color is perfect for instantly adding interest to any outfit while still remaining relatively muted/neutral.

Black Satin Cami and Burgundy Trousers

I’m very excited to partner up with Banana Republic again to feature a couple of pieces that were sent to me. (check out my last collaboration here) The first item is a black satin cami, which is a great basic to have in your closet. This one is excellent because it hits at the hip and is fully lined. I need to pick this up in white since it’s hard to find a quality white cami that isn’t see through! Wear the cami on its own, under a blazer, or layered over your favorite shirt for an effortless and trendy look.

I was also sent these mid-rise cropped burgundy trousers that are, hands down, the softest and most comfortable pair of trousers I own. I was honestly a tiny bit hesitant to wear these since I usually stick to black, white, gray, or navy colors for pants. I actually came to love the subtle pop of color these pants gave after trying them on and playing around with different looks. The beautiful deep burgundy, dark purplish shade matches other colors very easily and is appropriate for the workplace while also adding a little variety to your work attire.

For today’s look, I paired the trousers and cami with a gray coat from Zara for a neutral look. If you prefer something more vibrant, colors like lavender and blush pink would pair perfectly with the trousers! Accessories were kept pretty minimal with a gray crossbody that was unfortunately hidden by the coat, black belt with a gold round buckle, and a delicate gold double chain pendant. This velvet/suede belt is a steal at $10. The large gold buckle gives a similar vibe that the popular Gucci belt gives minus the crazy price tag and designer logo…

ALSO, Banana Republic is having their Friendsgiving sale for a limited time. Use the code: FRIENDS to get 40% off your entire order! (restrictions apply) Side note: how crazy is it that Thanksgiving is only one week away?!
