Can you believe Mother's Day is next weekend?  The past couple of weekends have been super busy around here so I haven't been able to put together my weekend sale post, but this weekend is a must for us last-minute shoppers!  I rounded up a few picks that would be perfect for Mom and the best part is that they're all on sale!  

Lots of picks are from Macy's, who is running their Friends and Family sale with an extra 25% off everything right now with just a $25 free shipping minimum (code FRIEND).  I love this straw clutch for summer and how cute is this tassel saddlebag?  These Ray-Ban aviators are also on sale and the pink mirror color is so chic and feminine!

J.Crew is also running 30% off sale (code SCORE) and I'm seriously lusting after their bucket bag!  These PJs are a consistent top seller and would also make a great gift.  I also own and love this Panama hat and can't recommend it enough for summer (especially perfect for any beach vacations!).

And lastly, you can't leave out my favorite store, Nordstrom.  This Kate Spade watch is on sale and such a classic piece.  The popular Charles David 'Pact' pump is also on sale with over 9 colors to choose from but I highly recommend picking up a white pair if you don't own one yet!  I also love these lace-up sandals!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by@

Romantic Lace + Edgy Mesh in a Pretty Spring Frock

cute & little blog | petite fashion | blue crochet lace self-portrait dress, chloe drew bag, louboutin so kate nude patent pumps | spring outfit
Dress: SheIn Crochet Mesh Dress c/o - wearing S (similar)
Bag: Jessica Buurman 'Calia' (splurge)
Shoes: Louboutin 'So Kate' (similar)
Earrings: J.Crew Crystal Drop Earrings with Bow (love these)
Watch: MVMT Rose Gold / Peach Watch c/o

Springtime just has me in a dress mood lately and I can't seem to get enough of pretty little frocks.  This dress checks all the boxes for me:  flattering fit-n-flare silhouette, feminine crochet lace, and even bonus points for having sleeves that add just a touch of modesty!  I dressed it up with classic accessories including nude pumps, simple bow earrings, and the "it" bag of the moment with a dupe for the Chloe 'Drew' bag (I definitely recommend this one if you're looking for a quality look-for-less option!).  

Walking Together // A Special Mommy + Me Post

cute & little blog | naturalizer "walk together" mother's day | spring outfit | mom + me

It's no surprise that now that I've become a mother myself, I have so much more appreciation for my own mother.  There are so many sacrifices we as mothers make and so many times that we place our own needs behind that of our children.  With Mother’s Day around the corner, I wanted to do a special “Mommy + Me” post but with my own mom this time!

cute & little blog | petite fashion | lace crop top, floral polka dot maxi skirt, nude gladiator wedge sandals | spring outfit
Top: SheIn Off-Shoulder Lace Crop Top c/o (love this onenon-cropped option)
Bottom: SheIn Floral Skirt c/o (sold out  :( but similar here and here)
Shoes: Naturalizer 'Hania' c/o
Bag: Ann Taylor Signature Tote (current year's option)
Earrings: Amrita Singh 'Sunset' Earrings (similar - only $8)
Watch: Citizen Crystal Silhouette c/o
Sunglasses: Karen Walker 'Super Duper'
Lipstick: L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte in Shanghai Scarlet

My love for fashion definitely stemmed from my mom, and I've always loved how much care and attention to detail my mom puts into getting dressed every day.  Growing up, I remember my mom would even change into something nice just to run to the store.  My mom has taught me what to look for when finding clothes that fit and even today I inspect clothes with the same careful eye -- making sure shoulder widths hit just right, ensuring that pant legs are properly tailored, and feeling fabrics to make sure that they are of good quality.  My mom has taught me everything I know about curating a timeless wardrobe!

Mixing Boho and Comfort

cute & little blog | petite fashion | boho floral blouse, distressed jeans, hushpuppies molly malia sandals, ray-ban blue mirror aviators | spring outfit
Top: Zaful Black Floral Blouse c/o - wearing S (more blouses here)
Bottom: AG Ankle Legging Jeans - wearing 25, size up if in-between
Shoes: Hushpuppies 'Molly Malia' c/o
Bag: Ann Taylor Signature Tote (old, this year's version)
Earrings: Kendra Scott 'Elle'
Watch: Citizen Crystal Silhouette c/o
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators in 58mm - 25% off price-matched!

I love the look of oversized flowy blouses with skinny jeans for when I want a casual look that's just a little boho yet still feminine. This top reminded me of the iconic Free People tunic with its front keyhole and angular V-neckline yet it's such a great bargain at under $11! This was my first time ordering from Zaful but it definitely will not be my last.  I had no issues with quality and appreciated the fact that the shirt looked exactly as shown online.  And as is similar with most overseas sites I've ordered from, shipping does take a bit longer (about 10 days for my order) but I was able to track it through the entire process.  Next on my list include this chambray off-shoulder top and this cute geometric print jumpsuit
