The Perfect Frayed Jeans for Petites...

If you're petite like me, then you know the struggle: Jeans. Yep, just the word itself can pretty much sum up the problem. When I was looking for a pair of frayed hem jeans, I was over the moon when I saw them come into the sales floor at my work---but alas, my common problem, they were too long. Wah! It's not like I don't buy regular fit jeans because I can easily fix the problem with cuffing or getting them hemmed at my local alterations place. On the other hand, with frayed jeans, the hem is dragging on the ground. It's kind of difficult to hem the bottom of jeans when they're already frayed, it just kind of defeats the purpose if you go through with it. But, knowing me, I don't just easily give up when looking for particular pieces. Lo and behold, I FOUND frayed hemmed jeans (here) in a petite size and they're perfect, plus they're under $35!!! For reference, the jeans are a slim boyfriend fit and I'm wearing a size US4. I could have gone down a size, but since I'm usually in between sizes around the waist, a belt could also easily fix the problem...or I could take it to get altered, haha!

Pink Peplum Dress...

Good morning and happy Monday everyone! This past weekend our family kept it pretty chill and did some cleaning around the house (I know, not too thrilling), but the good news is is that we are finally starting to prep our house for putting it up on the market, yay! We aren't planning on moving till the summer, but I'm just glad that we're getting an early start on fixing some things around the house before the fun begins! So that's a little life update. :)

As you know, Justin and I visited Charleston, SC a couple weekends ago. One of our favorite places during that trip was the Magnolia Plantation and it was absolutely gorgeous, even in the middle of February; but I'll share more about that later. This was the dress that I wore during our visit to the plantation. I love the drop peplum hem and the fact that it was very flowy, making it is so comfortable to wear while walking! I decided to keep the look low key, since we were going to be walking for a while, and wore these simple adidas sneakers. I love simple and easy dresses to wear, and this is definitely one of those!

Embroidered Cold Shoulder...

Yay it's Friday! Today I'm sharing another one of my favorite looks from Charleston, and let's just say the ruffle obsession continues! I found this embroidered cold shoulder blouse a few days before our trip, and I knew that it would look perfect with white jeans and my blue heels! And if it's pretty hot outside, it would also look cute with a pair of white shorts and these espadrille wedges! To top it off, I love anything embroidered, so to see that it had that on the ruffle hem made it an easy 'yes'! It even matched these ombre drop earrings so perfectly (seriously, how cute!).

For reference, I'm wearing a small, but it's a little big around the arms. So I definitely suggest sizing down one size.

Balloon Sleeve Dress {Only $27!}...

striped balloon sleeve dress {just $27} it even comes in a top || steve madden espadrille wedges || 

We've all been hearing about bell and flared sleeves, but what about balloon sleeves? Say what!? That's exactly what I thought when I ran across this one of a kind striped balloon sleeve dress! I knew that it was an absolute must to bring with me to Charleston, and I ended up wearing it out to brunch at High Cotton. I decided to break out the Marc Fisher dupe espadrille wedges and accessorize with a simple cognac cross body. It's definitely brunch approved, and I also think the dress would look great with these studded gladiator sandals and a fun pom fedora!

When I posted this dress over on Instagram, everyone loved it! So if you've been waiting to get more details about the dress, here they are:
-I'm 5'1" and wearing a size US 4; the material is a jersey knit, so it's super comfortable; and if you're not a fan of it in a dress, you can get it as a top too! And for just $17!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and if you live in the Carolina's, I hope you took advantage of the spring-like weather! Justin and I took a weekend trip down to Charleston this past weekend and the weather was nothing but perfect through out our stay. I wore this look on our first full day there and I can't get over how adorable this striped ruffle off the shoulder tee is! It's also very affordable {$28!} and would look great with a cute pair of frayed shorts and sandals once summer gets closer! A little about our first day: we had walked up and down some historic residential areas and then made a pit stop at Carmella's for a latte break. I'm a sucker for historic towns, and love how each and every home is unique! I'll be writing up a full Charleston post and everything we did, so stay tuned!
