Simply A Plaid Dress

I know. I know. It’s been a while since my last post. My apologies! The wedding is taking up all my time. Although, I am working on a few post of my DIY stuff to share with you later. So I haven’t completely forgotten about my blog. =]

Today, I am posting a very petite-friendly A-line silhouette dress with a cut-out along the waistline. It’s a high neckline tank dress and makes for a conservative dress for any family affair. I took this piece out Continue reading

Casual With A Kimono

IMG_5744

Hi! Just dropping by to share a quick outfit I wore recently. Kimonos make me feel like I’m wearing a light weight robe, but in a comfortable classy way. I got this one at TJMaxx. I chose to wear the kimono over a black shirt to allow the colors on the kimono to pop. I also tried to stick with a monochromatic look by wearing green bottoms and booties in a different shade of green.

Monochromatic Purple

IMG_5340

Hello! Today I experiment with monochromatic colors. As we shorties all know, wearing one color from head to toe gives the illusion of a taller look. This explains why I look a lot taller and slimmer when I’m in all black. But who wears all black all the time? That’s no fun. I went for a happier color, like purple. My late grandma loved this color, so when I miss her I throw on some purple and it feels like she’s close by.

This Banana Republic cardigan runs big. I am wearing an extra small in petite. The difference I saw with the petite and regular is that the sleeves are longer on the regular size. Even with the petite cardigan, I still have to fold the sleeves up a bit. If you are looking for something that’s fitted, avoid this. The cotton/nylon/viscose material creates a boxy look.

Here are some of my other favorite corduroys:

I don’t wear these floral corduroys often because it’s a bit snug around the waist. I usually fit size 0P at Loft, but the 0P in these were loose around the thighs. The 00P fit better on the legs, so I went with 00P. I always go with the tighter fit because sometimes the material stretches.

Maui + Wedding

maui12

As the weather gets colder here, I begin to miss the warm Hawaii sun, which got me thinking about my most recent trip to Maui. I realize I didn’t get a chance to share this travel with you. David and I spent five nights in Maui at The Royal Lahaina Resort doing nothing but eating and relaxing.

Hawaiian Air charges for a bag check-in so I decided to squeeze everything into my carry on. I try to avoid checking in a bag as much as possible to save time. The thought of waiting at the baggage claim and then struggling to catch my bag before it spins away from me is never Continue reading
