Isn’t this red trench coat from Burberry perfect? I am definitely adding this little number to my wish list. I have always said that when I buy a trench coat it HAS TO BE Burberry!

I got to create two outfits out and I love the pops of colours on both! I am obsessing over the Joie Navy Blue Blazer because it is casual and perfect for layering over basically any colour top and both the Ted Baker top and Eileen Fisher boyfriend jeans give life to this outfit. The outfit on the right is full Red Valentino. Aren’t those printed yellow pants everything!? Absolutely in LOVE!

As you all probably know by now, DVF is my favourite designer and one of the women I admire the most. Wearing one of her iconic dresses truly makes you feel like the woman I want to become. This romper is so fun and cute!! I love it !

How to Style: Shorts & Playsuits

For all my northern friends, Spring  is upon us and pretty soon the sun will shine and warm your skin. I promise!  This spring, shorts and playsuits will be must- haves in my closet. When travelling, I will be bringing a combination of both in different styles and colors. These pieces are perfect for warmer weather because you can either dress them down for a day outing, the beach or simply to lounge around or pair them up with high heels, wedges, a statement necklace and a clutch and you are good to go for a night out! Overall shorts are also a piece I am looking forward to styling  and I can’t wait to wear them! Who said overalls are for 5 year olds!? Ok, they are, BUT, the new overalls going around town, look really pretty on grown up women!  I have added two inspiration mood boards to show my favorites of the season and how I will possibly be styling my pieces!

I am all in for prints this  spring season, especially tribal and floral printed shorts! A good lace short can do no wrong whether is day or night, and how can we forget the basic jean shorts that can be styled with so many different blouses and basic shirts. A statement necklace can really dress it up as well! Just remember the golden rule, if you show legs, cover up top, Less is Always more!

The playsuits that I have added to my wardrobe this spring are both printed and solid bright colors! For a spring/summer vacation, a simple white playsuit is essential because you can pair it with so many other colors and that can save space in your luggage! The more flowy a playsuit is, the more I like it, since being comfortable is what I crave most! Aren’t this inspiration playsuits delightful? The black playsuit reminds me of the LBD, so that means, we need one just like it!

What style is your favorite? Shorts or Playsuits? How would you style overalls?

One of my favorite items in my closet is a simple white button down shirt. It offers versatility like no other item of clothing. It wears extremely well across all seasons and can be dressed up or down. It pairs amazingly with shorts, jeans and even skirts. Here are some of my favorite looks that I will be using as inspiration for upcoming posts! Stay tuned & Happy Sunday!

The Petite Diaries: Look Taller

Hey guys! Today I am introducing a brand new series on the blog called The Petite Diaries. I am a petite girl, and ever since I started focusing my attention on fashion and styling I have noticed a pretty big gap on petite styling tips and clothing. Although now different stores have started bringing out collections specifically geared towards petite women, they still have a long way to go. Most of the clothes might be tailored for petite women, but the models sure aren’t petite. Get your act together stores!

On today’s post, I am bringing you 5 tips on how to visually appear taller and how to make clothes more appropriate for us gals shorter than 5’4. I hope you enjoy this series! Please keep the suggestions rolling in as I love to share experiences!

1. Neckline: Petite girls should choose V necks or rounded necklines as they make the torso appear longer.

2. Proportion: When it comes to skirts, petite girls should go opposites; either short-short or long maxi-dresses. Midi skirts are tricky to style for petite figures but not impossible, and about that we will talk in a later post. Hemlines should be kept above the knee. With maxi dresses or skirts make sure to wear high heels or wedges as flats could make you appear smaller.

3. High waisted pants, skirts or shorts are an absolute must in a petite gals closet. If this type of cut is flattering for you then go for it and embrace it. I love this particular style because it enhances my waistline and makes my legs appear much longer!

4. Avoid boxy cut blouses and pieces with too much fabric. Personally, I am attracted to these boxy pieces because they are very comfortable and if styled correctly, a petite girl can pull them off. The key is to pair them up with a skinny belt or form hugging pants or skirts to preserve our figure and not let it get lost in the fabric.

5. The tailor is your best friend! Most stores mass produce pieces geared towards a standard height. These pieces might fit us in size but may not be proportionate to our height. A tailor can help you achieve the perfect fit and even more, he can make it just for you! I know I love my tailor!

What are your tips on looking taller? Stay tuned for more tips and Outfits for petite girls!
