Sharing details on how to wear animal prints with classic style (and are petite friendly).
When it comes to fall, it’s hard not to think of animal print. If you are someone who struggles with styling, animal prints can seem overwhelming. That is why I am sharing my tips on how to wear animal prints with classic style. These tips are easy to style and don’t have to be expensive!
Utilized white and black with your animal prints
When it comes to animal prints, I like to style them with white or black. For this look, I went with a black turtle neck, a wine colored corduroy skirt and ankle boots.
Accessorize with animal print
When in doubt – accessorize! Animal print is a great way to add some texture to your look. My bow hair tie is a charming addition to my look. It will be a piece that you will be sure to use time and time again. I also added a square scarf to add an extra touch of leopard print to my look. I also have some other looks that I styled with leopard print here.
Sharing details on where to go apple picking in NJ + a fall bucket list for you to enjoy!
If you live on the east coast, fall is a great time to enjoy being outside. It’s a great time to whip out your fall wardrobe (fall fashion ideas here) and take part in fall festivities. As a native on New Jersey, I love the opportunity to visit local farms for apple and pumpkin picking. So today, I wanted to share where to go apple picking in NJ + a fall bucket list for you to use to plan your fall activities.
Being the garden state, New Jersey has a lot of farms that you can pick apples as well as pumpkins! I go over my favorite places to go pumpkin picking here.
Here are some of my favorite places to go apple picking in NJ:
Inspiring a fall fashion look by winterizing a summer dress to wear in the fall.
It truly is a bittersweet time of year. It’s hard to say goodbye to summer. However, if you live on the east coast it’s not entirely bad – especially when you have the trees changing to lovely yellows, orange and reds. So today, I am sharing some fall fashion inspiration on how to transition from summer to autumn. I chose to winterize a summer dress to fit the season a little bit better. Here is now I did it:
Whip out a fun belt
Belts help elevate any look in a fun, effortless way! I added a belt to my summer dress to add some extra edge to my look. If you are petite, belts should be your best friend! They are a fantastic way to highlight your petite frame when a piece you have on it a little to baggy.
Add a wool hat
When you are transitioning from summer to fall, take advantage of using your wool hats! They look great with pretty much anything. I love this wide rim wool hat so much because it has a stiff rim (plus it’s under $50). It’s a great dupe to a Lack of Color hat (and is half the price).
Step in time with boots
You know how we pretty much live in our sandals in the summer? Well when fall comes, I live in my boots. I recently discovered BLONDO – a brand sold at Nordstrom that makes waterproof boots. Not only are these bad boys cute but they are practical too! Nothing says fall fashion like boots am I right?
Welcome fall! It is officially the first day of my favorite season and I could not be more delighted. I have had a chance to show you all some pre-fall inspiration with a sweater tunic which you can view here along with some petite friendly fall trends that you can view here. Today, I wanted to share with you all some fall fashion inspiration with a cami that I can’t stop wearing (so much so, that I bought it in two colors).
Originally, I purchased this piece during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale earlier this year (you can see my dressing room series here). From the minute I put it on, it was easy to understand why so many bloggers (including myself) love it so much.
The material is so soft and silky. The reason why it’s my favorite fall fashion inspiration piece: its versatility! I can style this top over a t-shirt, pair with a cardigan or even with a cute skirt. It is safe to say that I will be purchasing this top in several prints and colors because of how much wear I am getting out of these gorgeous pieces. I loved it so much that I wore this camisole to an event in Brooklyn (you can see BTS of the event on my Instagram) I felt so stylish without feeling over dressed.
I know, I know. Technically we are still in summer but I can’t help myself! Fall on the east coast is beautiful! As the girl who is always cold, I look forward to adding extra layers to my style. Speaking of style, today I am sharing petite friendly fall trends that you can rock with ease (even if you are under 5’4).
Fall is dominated by animal prints and it’s easy to see why! Animal prints are timeless and are super easy to style. I like to pair animal prints with a pop of color to add extra personality to my look.
There is a misconception that petite women cannot wear longer pieces like maxi dresses (I debunk that misconception here). That being said, slip skirts might seem intimidating since they are on the longer side. The trick is to make sure that they do not go past your ankles. PRO TIP: pair a slip skirt with a pair of booties to give you some extra height.
Knee high boots
These bad boys dominate fall fashion and it is easy to see why! Knee high boots are easy to style with a sweater dress or your favorite jeans. Below I have linked my favorite petite friendly knee high boots for you to check out!
Being petite has its perks like the fact that we can rock hats with ease! I find that wool hats are the best accessory for fall (they are cute + plus keep your head warm when the weather gets cooler).
A trend that I hope is here stay! Plus, these bags prevent you from lugging around a heavy bags filled with things you don’t need 😉
I hope this post helps you try out some new trends without feeling overwhelmed. What’s your favorite fall trend this year? Be sure to let me know in the comments below.
Sweater weather is here! As such, it is time to break out our fall wardrobe as we approach a new season of crisp air, apples and pumpkin flavored everything. So today, I wanted to dedicate a post to petite friendly sweaters that are under $50.
This tunic sweater is what inspired me to write a blog post about petite friendly sweaters! I got this beauty during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I am so grateful. This sweater is so flattering for petites that can be worn as a dress or layers with jeans/shirt. In these images, I am wearing it in size S for extra coziness. If you want this piece to be true to size, size down.
I am interrupting your NYFW coverage to give you info on this year’s Ulta’s 21 days of beauty sale! There are a lot of great items that will be on sale during the next few weeks and I want you to take advantage of them! There is no better time to do some shopping at Ulta. Let’s dive in:
If you suffer from rosaeca like I do, this primer is going to help you out! The green color cools down any redness allowing you to put foundation on that will stay and will not show the redness in your skin.
