Happy Friday ladies! Is it cold where you are? It’s gotten cold here but nothing like what the Northeast is struggling with. It was a storm just like they’re suffering through that sent us packing to California in 1978. I’m sorry if you’re dealing with horrific temps and hope you can hunker down and stay warm
I wanted some cozy clothes for bundling up in our cool temps and hoped to find them on super sale. Sadly, most everything I liked was sold out in my size, which is par for the course during after Christmas sales, but it did give me some great ideas.
Several of you mentioned J.Jill in my survey so I stopped in to see their petite section. I’m borderline when it comes to petite sizing and can go either way depending on how I want a garment to look but for many women, it’s a necessity.
The soft color and cozy chenille attracted me to this sweater. It’s slight A-line shape flatters most silhouettes. I can see this sweater with skinny jeans, grey stretch pants or even a slim knit skirt. I’m wearing a petite S and the sleeves are too short for me so I needed the petite M or L. It’s 50% off the already discounted price in misses, petites and women’s sizes.
I loved this A-line sweater dress until I put it on. This is a petite M but the sleeves are too long and the shoulders are huge. I decided it was mislabeled so grabbed another one with the same results so decided it’s just not cut for me. It runs generously and would look better on a taller or curvier woman. It’s also on deep discount.
This Luxe Chenille Pullover isn’t made in petite but I had to try it on! It’s cuddly soft and would be great for cold days curled up with tea and a great book in the afternoon. A pair of fun earrings, scarf and/or necklace would polish it up to run out for errands. It’s also 50% off the already discounted price. If this came in petite, I would order it in a heartbeat!
I love a great denim shirt but they need to be soft. This Tencel Tunic feels like silk but looks like denim. It’s front and back inverted pleats give it a fit and flare silhouette which flatters most body shapes. I love it! I picture this with narrow white jeans, leggings or dressed up over black stretch pants. This is a petite M.
This textured cardigan is a great length and the color is pretty. Sadly, the shape does nothing for me and would look better on a woman who has a few more curves. A scarf would have improved this neckline on me but the entire shape is too boxy for my straight silhouette. This is a petite M.
I’m looking forward to hunkering down on the couch with a good book and just relaxing this weekend. We do have a small dinner party planned here for Saturday, but they’re very close friends so it’ll be very casual.
What are your plans for the weekend?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
