Hi loves! It may not feel like it but spring is here! We are coming to that time of year where  our winter coats are simply too heavy . That is why every lady needs a good trench coat to protect her from wind and rain. Pair your trench coat with striped shirt and your favorite pair of jeans for a simple (but chic) look. I have linked some of my favorite trench coats that are petite friendly and vary in price range. Happy shopping!

Happy Monday loves! As a working professional I love the fact that I can wear dresses. However, sometimes a lady needs to slip in a good pair of pants when she is at work. For petites, finding a good pair of work pants can be difficult. Thankfully, companies like Banana Republic, Loft, Macy’s and even Express have a petite section.I have linked a few of my favorite work pants below varying in different piece ranges below. Where is your favorite place to shop for professional styled clothing? Feel free to leave me a comment below!

Not sure about you guys, but I have had a case of spring fever since the end of December. I’m a spring baby so winter months tend to not sit well with me (se la vie right?) So coming across this bold floral maxi dress at Banana Republic was a game changer. Because the print of this piece is so romantic and bold, I chose to pick simple (but chic) accessories. Not only is this dress beautiful but you are sure to get the most out of your buck. This is a piece that is perfect for work, date night or even if you want to stand out during an interview! Just add a blazer and closed toe shoes and you are sure to leave a great impression!  If you are curvy, you can see first hand how lovely this dress looks on my fellow fashionista Maya here. Have you had a chance to purchase a maxi dress for spring? Feel free to leave me a comment below.






Ok, Disney’s remake of Beauty and the Beast is brilliant! Don’t worry, I will be sure not to tell any spoilers for those who did not get a chance to see the film yet in theaters (you may know the classic tale but this film has more depth to the story). All I will say if that the film was incredibly beautiful – the sets, costumes, everything! As such, I wanted to share some pieces that were inspired by the film (that are petite friendly too!)

I want to give a huge shoutout my talented friend Katie from Katie Vee Photography for helping me with this shoot. I have known Katie for several years now. When we got acquainted, she was just starting her photography business. She is the one that got me to love modeling and fashion. Years later, we have both grown up so much professionally and personally. Let Katie be an example that if you work hard and follow your passion, success is within your grasp.

When it comes to fashion, you HAVE to step out of your comfort zone. I have seen a few articles that feature dresses and sneakers paired together as a new, trendy looks. So I decided to give this look a try And let’s face it, we bloggers and fashionistas can only last in heels for so long. It jut goes to show that even sneakers can be dressed up if styled properly.

Open jackets like the one I have featured in this post are great to pair with a chiffon top, dress or even button up shirt and jeans. I chose to complete my look with a ring large bucket bag by Lauren Conrad. Let me tell you, this is a Mary Poppins bag if you will. You can store so much in this bag without it feeling like it is going to weigh you down.
