I love combining pretty colors – such as this love combination of pink + grey. These pretty hues add a feminine flair to what is considered a casual look. I am in love with my new roll up chinos from Banana Republic which are comfy and flattering at the same time. I am also wearing my new crossbody tote bag from Madewell which is the perfect size for me! I love how you can wear it three ways: crossbody, on one side, or as a satchel. It holds everything I need without overwhelming my petite frame.
I personally think women are pretty easy to shop for – basically shoes, purses and/or pretty things. Here are some of my top picks, in completely random order (but I’ll take one of each please). Are you listening honey?!
Here’s my final look with the pretty Morning Lavender two piece lace set. I just HAD to post one of my favorite ways to wear a crop top – paired with a maxi skirt! I love how this combination is so flattering – especially for petite gals like me. I get asked pretty often about this yellow skirt, which sold out on ASOS quickly. Well after searching over a year for an equivalent beauty, I have finally found it!!!!! And when I found it, I just knew I had to offer it on my boutique, Morning Lavender! This skirt is actually much fuller than my ASOS skirt and has more of a chartreuse tint to it. I had to get the waist taken in a tad bit so I could wear it higher on my waist (again to add some height illusion =)). But because I wear my skirts higher on the waist, I didn’t have to get the length altered (I’m also wearing 4 inch heels in these photos)! We shot this on a super windy day in Los Angeles so I had that perfect skirt wind wherever I walked! My hair didn’t fair as well with the wind – oh well! I hope you will enjoy this skirt as much as I do!
Happy Monday folks! Here is my 3rd look with the versatile lace two piece set from Morning Lavender! I wanted to style a look appropriate for the office/work with the lace skirt. I paired it with a cropped tweed jacket also from Morning Lavender and my new cute bow clutch from Kate Spade (yes I love bows as much as I love lace). I love how the lace skirt can be stylish but it’s length and neutral color makes it appropriate for the workplace. Stay tuned for my fourth and final look coming later this week!
Here is the 2nd way I styled the lace two piece set from Morning Lavender. I paired the lace crop top with a comfy boyfriend jeans and heels (to give myself some added height). I can’t get enough of this casual, yet chic look – what you will usually find me wearing on the weekends =P.
One of my favorite stores with petite friendly sizes is having a SALE with 20% off all petite items! Use code: JUSTRIGHT at checkout. Sale ends 1/23/2015 3AM EST. Here are some of my current favorites, with some already marked down!
I wanted to share one of my favorite finds from my boutique – this lovely lace two piece set from Morning Lavender! I love wearing this as a fun set but I also love how versatile the pieces are individually. I love them so much that over the next couple of blog posts, I will show how to style these pieces with other items in your closet. I hope this will encourage you to give two piece options a try, especially ones that have such pretty lace detailing ;). I know it’s not fair that January in Los Angeles allows for me to wear outfits like this! =P Check back for more styling options with these lacey pieces.
Just because it’s winter (well not as much in Southern California), doesn’t mean you can’t add some color to your wardrobe! I’ve been in love with Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dresses for the longest time. I found this one recently and immediately fell in love with the bright colorblocking style. With the self tie, the dress fits perfectly and makes you feel very chic and feminine. I love it!
When I’m not getting girlie and glam (which is most of the time), I love to be comfy and casual. Most of these days you will find me in boots and a cozy oversized sweater or poncho as you see here. It’s important to manage your proportions when wearing something like this so you don’t look like you are lost in what you are wearing. My new over-the-knee boots from Sam Edelman (so glad I kept them!) make my legs look a bit longer and the belt helps give me shape with such an oversized layer.
