Jamie Print Open Back Short Sleeve Dress (XS) | Jaggar Pinacle Boot (Size 4) | Watch Garmin | Vintage Drop Earrings

This might be my favorite fall find this year. Sunny days are passing us by and it’s time to transition into cooler temperatures and pumpkin everything! With the midi length this dress is fantastic with white sneakers or with a wild print boot for fall. The small pattern and light fabric keep the silhouette long and lean for petites. It hugs my body and doesn’t add unnecessary fullness at the hips which I love. I tend to have a lot of gold and warm tones to my skin and the ginger color is really flattering. My skin is warm and on the medium side so warm Autumn colors look great on me and in the winter I can lean a little towards a dark winter when my skin lightens up. I think that is one of the biggest challenges I have encountered in petite clothing, finding the right item in the right color in the right size. While this dress is not labeled as a petite I found it to run small and the cut was flattering. I did have it hemmed and had the slit taken up about an inch. I try to buy items that need little or no altering but when you are as petite as I am that is pretty hard to do. I have a great tailor here in Coeur d’ Alene that I have worked with for years. I would definitely recommend finding a quality tailor in your area because you will inevitably need to have something hemmed if you are petite.
