Coat (sold out) | Sweater | Jeans | Boots | Sunglasses | Bag (sold out but this one is just as great!)

...

Happy Monday 
This is that coat that I've dreaming about and was so happy to snag one in my size.
When I say dreaming I tried every way possible to get one. But of course no such luck!
But then I went on GILT and what?! The coat goddesses were on my side. 
Plus at under $200 verses the original $1000. I couldn't help myself :)
I've been dying to get a coat that mixed all the things I love.
Chic and has great faux fur.
Well I hope you had an amazing weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas.
Did it snow by you?
I was really dreaming of a white Christmas but hey that's okay :)
Can you believe it was 54 degrees yesterday!! 
Gahhh crazzzyyy.

Being petite can be difficult to find things that fit right off the rack.
From shirts to jeans the struggle is too real.
My love for trench style vests runs real deep.
I have all different styles:
Dressy, casual, sporty, classic, leather & lace.

I also love that I really do rock them even being petite. 
The best advice I have for pulling trench vest off is:
1. Either needs to hit a couple of inches above your knee.
2. No more than 3 below your knee.
3. Also wear heels because you know that never hurts!
If it's a little longer take it to a tailor or hem yourself.
Making sure you create a long sleek line makes you appear taller.
Not that I wan't to be taller but man being over 5'0 feet would be nice!

The best thing about these trench vests is have fun with them.
I love this one in particular because of the faux fur.
Snagged this beauty a few years back at Bloomingdales 
and so happy I kept it after all these years!





So tell me do you own a trench style vest.

Happy Wednesday! 
Can you believe it Christmas Eve this Saturday?!
Christmas Sunday?!
Where did the year go? 
I know I sound like a broken record...
Speaking of record I'm on the hunt for a record player.
If you have any good suggestions let this girl know!!

I snagged this awesome trench from Nordstrom 
early fall and it quickly became a staple.
The best thing about being petite 
is that sometimes long trenches actually work.
When they don't it's important to find a good tailor.
Great tailored clothes when you are petite is so important!

This particular trench is fromVeronica Beard.
 You can find her stuff at Nordstrom &&
yes, she is a pricey but she is worth every penny.
She hardly goes on sale so I always snag her stuff when she does :)

Turning 30 really made me want more quality than quantity.
So I have been slowly upgrading all my clothes.
It's a slow process, but worth it.





  

So tell me if you are petite how do you work a long trench?

Christmas with Minted

Christmas with Minted

With Christmas right around the corner I'm just feeling all of the cheer.
 I'm all done with all of the shopping and wrapping.
I checked my list and checked it twice! 
(Thanks St. Nick)
How are you all doing?! Are you a last minute shopper?!

The past few weeks my boyfriend and I have been receiving so much snail mail!
I love getting Christmas cards as much as I like sending them :)
When Minted reached out to me to create my own unique Christmas Cards;
how could I say no?
I love that Minted feels like I am shopping small; 
with independent artists from around the globe-
I'm getting unique designs and one of kind cards.

I also absolutely loved that any of their holiday cards are available with matching custom stamps, envelope designs and FREE recipient addressing. 
If you know me then I absolutely had to have everything clean and matching!
#thanks

I also loved that Minted & their artists were on trend this year :)
Foil, midnight blues, and of course an ode' to Starbucks cups galore!
You could find just about anything and of course in anyones budget.

I just can't thank Minted enough for making our first Christmas card unique and true to us. 
(I of course had to have our beautiful Pitties featured as well)
I will be back for their art, stationary and I see some name labels in the future!
