Spring style favorites from Karen Kane

Petite-friendly​ summer trends 2019-2.png

I have been blogging for the past year and I have to say, I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be here today. If you are new to my page, you must know that this blog began as a passion project. Since I started my blog three years ago, it continues to be a passion project as well as a side hustle.

Two years ago, I was introduced to Karen Kane when I fell in love with one of their black lace dresses. I wore it on a cruise and it continues to be one of my favorite dresses to date. Flash forward to this year, I had the privilege to work with Karen Kane to promote some of the latest pieces from this spring/summer 2019 collection! They sent me two pieces from their latest collection and I cannot wait to share with you all the details about these pieces.

Striped blazer 


A great blazer is always a piece that every woman should have in their wardrobe. I love this striped blazer because it’s light yet structured. It only comes in regular sizing but I was able to find the perfect size by sizing down. For reference, I am wearing this blazer in XS.


Blazer: Nordstrom ; also sold here // Jeans: Articles of Society // Pumps: QVC (under $50) // Headband: H&M

Floral print dress 


I have yet to find a floral print dress that I can say no to. I love how light this dress is as well as versatile. It can be worn as a cover up or dressed up with a belt, heels and a stylish bag the way I did here. Since the weather is still a little brisk, I pair this dress with my favorite denim jacket. I chose to size down with this dress as well since it only comes in regular sizing. I am wearing it XS.
