Petite Ladies Need to Look Like a Boss Too

I’m short. I’m small. I have tiny bones. Although the clothes that fit me best are usually from teenie bopper junior stores, I am 36 and sometimes need to dress professionally. I will revisit this conundrum in other posts (because I know I’m not the only lady out there in this sitch.) But for today, I would like to highlight this bomb 00Petite perforated flare mini-but-not-so-mini-it-can’t-be-worn-to-the-office skirt that I scored on the sale rack at Loft. Ann Taylor and Loft consistently carry killer petite professional clothes and I am always grateful.

This beautifully beaded collar necklace from Eclectica in Old San Juan was handmade by a local Puerto Rican artist. I instantly fell in love with the color palette.
