First of all, I’m sooo excited to be an #ExpressPartner! I’m working with Express to share some of their new styles from their Petite Collection over the next few months and I can’t wait to share all of my fabulous finds with you all. I’ve shopped at Express for years and it’s great that they have expanded their petite line to carry so many versatile and everyday pieces. Today’s post is all about denim and with Fall right around the corner, I’m already transitioning to darker denim styles. This affordable pair (only $40 right now!) of mid rise distressed ankle jeans is super petite friendly and not to mention incredibly comfy. I can see these jeans as a Fall staple – wearing them with cute booties, cozy sweaters and Fall jackets. I especially love the distressed look of these jeans with the slits hitting in all the flattering places. All Express jeans are currently 50% off so I’d hurry and snag up a few of these Fall essentials!
Lately, life has been extremely hectic so I love having a simple, go-to denim look that I can just throw on and be ready for work and whatever comes my way. We carry these adorable scallop tops at Morning Lavender that come in a variety of colors. The top is so simple yet versatile and goes great with jeans or tucked in a skirt or dress pants. I’ve also been obsessed with layering gold necklaces as of late and this choker-long necklace combo from Mejuri is perfect.
I love how versatile and comfy this off the shoulder romper is! It’s such a simple look that can be dressed down or up. I added a cute belt and some of my favorite accessories to pull this simple look together. With the dark denim wash, this romper is a great transition from Summer to Fall.

If I could wear lace everyday, I probably would! Lately, I have also been living in off the shoulder styles. I especially love to mix and match different textures like this fun off the shoulder denim top with this pretty lace pencil skirt. The whole look is flirty and breezy – perfect for a Spring to Summer transition.
What better way to dress up a simple, denim look than with a pop of color in the form of pink bow heels?! These affordable statement shoes (only $25!) might not be the most comfortable but they are the cutest!
This lace midi skirt is definitely one of my favorite finds as a buyer for Morning Lavender. I just love how feminine the skirt is and plus it has pleats and pockets! It’s literally perfection in lace. I paired this girlie skirt with another classic staple – the denim shirt. A denim shirt is a versatile piece – great for layering and adding a different, casual vibe to any look. It also makes for a great summer to fall transition look!

It’s tricky for me to find a blazer that fits well due to my petite size. Luckily ASOS has a petite line that offers blazers in petite sizes with great styles and fits! I have been searching for a sleeveless blazer/vest that doesn’t overwhelm me and I love the look and feel of this one! There are so many ways you can style a sleeveless blazer – you can dress it up for work or dress it down with jeans. I did a combination look here by wearing it with my new favorite denim skirt and adding a dressy handbag and heels.
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.

As much as I love pretty dresses and skirts, some days it all about rocking a pair of great jeans. I love the fit of these from my boutique, Morning Lavender. They have a great mid-rise and slim fit throughout the pant to hug and flatter your shape. (The higher waist helps us petite gals ;). I remember when I use to love low rise jeans back in college especially the Frankie B’s with one inch zippers! Now I live by high waisted pants and can’t imagine wearing anything so low ever again! And what I love about crop jeans is that you don’t have to get the length hemmed. With my hectic schedule these days, I am all about convenience so it saves me an extra trip to the alterations place! I added my girlie touch to the look and paired it with my favorite new lace kimono and my custom made gold necklace from Arm Candy Fashion!
