Lace & Stripes

Petite and So What - Numéro un Polene bordeaux - Top Zara dentelle et rayures

Spring is back and temperatures are warmer. It’s so good to keep our winter coats back into our closets. It’s a soft and spring colors outfit I show you this Monday.

Pale blue, beige, gray and burgundy

What I prefer wearing are light colors, regardless the season (exception with my jackets and winter coats which are often black).

Today I show you my new Zara blue and white striped-shirt. I find it absolutely gorgeous with its navy blue lace yoke. I paired it with my gray jeans and my new beige cardigan bought at Marie Sixtine.

Finding pregnancy pairs of jeans in my size is not easy…

It’s a nightmare to find pregnancy jeans in my size. The one I am currently wearing comes from H&M Mama and with no surprise, I had to adjust it on the lenght. The hem measures 17,5 cm, I have cut 16,5 cm and sewn a 1 cm hem. I have forgotten how “standard” sizes jeans are so long!

I have also tested Asos Petite pregnancy jeans but they are too large. I have ordered the smallest size 32 but the design is not a “slim/skinny” on me but a too large straight one. Same conclusion at Verbaudet (too large on the legs). At Top Shop and New-Look Maternity, the smallest size which is distributed is 36, whereas standard collections start with the 32 size…

So the tightest I have tried are the one from H&M Mama I am wearing on the pictures.

Pairing your bag and shoes color is not old-fashioned

Cristina Cordula (French broadcaster) always repeats that pairing your bag and shoes color is old-fashioned. Honestly, I don’t agree with it. It depends on the situation, of course. If you wear a monochrome color outfit and you pair your shoes and bag color, it’s of course not very trendy. But, if your outfit is colorful and if you pair your bag and shoes color with another brighter color, I find it lovely!

So I have paired my burgundy shoes bought on sale at André (it is a 36 size, it sizes quite small, but I wear them with a pair of soles inside) with my new Polène bag. It’s a late Christmas gift I have just received. I love it for its lovely burgundy color, its medium size and also for the bi-material leather.

Have a lovely week, Xxx.

Fashion advice for petites

For the top to cover the jeans holding strip, it needs to measure at least 51 cm on the length. Indeed, it should not be too short (not aesthetic), nor too long because it shortens the body… The jeans is already low waist enought. Then, as usual, we try to bring verticality to the outfit : vertical stripes are the best for that. Moverover, we try to keep our jackets and cardigans open for the same reason.

H&M Mama jeans, adjusted on the length (17,5 cm) (new co) – Zara shirt, reference 3633/055 (new co) – Marie Sixtine cardigan (new co), bought at Printemps Haussman, on sale on Monshowroom.com here or on Place des Tendances here – Polène bag, numéro 1 (new co) – Fosseth earrings (old) – André shoes, T36, also exist in black here (old)
