shopping tips for petite ladies: where I find my favorites.

top. jeans. similar jacket. Tory Burch bag. loafers. necklace. sunglasses.

You guys want to know something freaking awesome?  I didn’t have to do a single thing to this outfit to make it fit me properly.

Yes.  You read that right.  No hemming of the pants, no fudging of the shirt, no shortening of the jacket sleeves.  Everything fit me, just as I wanted it to, right off the rack.

It’s taken me years to hone my ninja petite shopper skills and today, I’m going to spill my secrets.

This is for all you petites ladies out there, just trying to get through life finding pants that are short enough.

(regular height ladies, feel free to read-on and snicker at the shenanigans it takes to find a decent fitting outfit sometimes…)

Kate Spade Surprise sale favorites and things I’ve been loving lately.


black watch. sweater. small wallet. nude satchel. striped dress. polka dot passport holder. gold watch. striped cosmetics bag. gray bag. pink wallet. nude bag.

Guys, you know my love for Kate Spade runs deep.  Their handbags are everything and right now they are having a huge surprise sale.  You would not believe how good the prices are, either.  I’m talking low $100’s for $300+ handbags.  I’ve rounded up a bunch of my favorites from the sale above.  It’s only going for another 2 days, and the best stuff sells out fast as it gets closer to the end. So if you see something you love, snag it for a deal.

a few other things I’ve been loving lately:

Did you catch yesterday’s back to school post?  I am obsessed with everything at J.Crew Factory right now.  Loving all the ruffle stripe combinations, especially for kids.

English Factory is one of my favorite brands to shop at Shopbop, gorgeous pieces and good prices.  I picked up this top for our paris trip in a few weeks and I’m loving this pretty pink eyelet one.

I finally picked up some Sincerely Jules joggers, and they are legit.  But they’re also a little too long for me, so I’m going to be altering them up to fit.  It’s a super easy thing to do, so I’m putting together a post for all you petite ladies, cause finding jogger that work for us is HARD!

I’ve been thinking a lot about my fall shoe situation, which means I’ve been looking at boots and booties non-stop.  What are some of your favorite boot/booties brands.  I have my go-to’s (I’m looking at you Vince Camuto) but I’d love to know which brands you love that are stylish and comfortable.

Happy Thursday everyone!

back to school with J.Crew Factory.

My outfit: top. similar jeans. shoes. similar sunglasses. scarf. (c/o J.Crew Factory)


Ava’s outfit: top. jeans. similar shoes. Hannah’s outfit: Top. Jeans. Shoes.  Carter’s outfit: henley. sweatshirt. jeans. similar boots. Ethan’s outfit: top. cords. similar boots. (c/o J.Crew Factory)

Back to school is always a bitter-sweet time for me.  On the one hand I am really looking forward to having structure and a schedule again, but on the other hand, I’m sad that my kids will be gone all day during the week.  (Except for when they’re fighting.  Then I’m like, “please go back to school already…”)

These last few fleeting weeks of summer, I try to spend as much time as possible hanging with my kids, going on a few last minute summer adventures, being outside, and talking about the school year ahead.  I know most kids grumble when it comes to going back to school, but I always want my kids to look forward to a new school year, the fresh start and the opportunity to learn all kinds of new things.

my hearty tortilla soup recipe.

I showed this tortilla soup as I was making it on my instastories last week and got a bunch of messages asking for the recipe, so I thought I would go ahead and share it here.  I don’t claim to be the best cook, but this tortilla soup is dang good.  Like even my kids who are picky-eaters like it.  It’s a little spicy, but not too crazy.
