This romper is seriously a new favorite!  I absolutely love the blue floral print, the tie waist as well as the mid-length sleeves that all make it perfect for those days when I want to look dressy but still want something as easy as shorts.  This romper is a bit on the shorter side and while I took it in a size small, I did have to be careful not to raise my hands too high.  I have an average-length torso, but I'd say that if your torso is on the longer side, sizing up is probably your best bet.  I did also use a safety pin to secure the front together to avoid any gaping issues (what I do for almost all wrap tops like this one).  At less than $15 (use code INST33 - valid thru May 31), this romper is a great steal!

This Tory Burch crossbody is on sale for 30% off right now!  I absolutely love using it when I'm running errands with the little ones and just want something small that I can keep my essentials in and be hands-free.  I've also been pairing these two Cartier-inspired bracelets together (this and this) and just love the combination of edgy and classic in this arm stack!

Memorial Day Sales

Enter my Shopbop giveaway!

Untitled
on sale now:  Tory Burch 'Chandler' - 30% off | Tory Burch 'Robinson' Purse - 30% off

I hate doing back-to-back shopping posts but Memorial Day weekend sales are pretty much like the Black Friday equivalent for the spring/summer season!  I've rounded up a few of my picks as well as have listed the deals going on at my favorite stores.

Express - 40% off site-wide.  No code needed.
cute & little blog | memorial day sale | express

Express is killing it with their summer collection and I put in an embarrassingly large order given their current 40% off sale!  I've been wanting a good chambray shirt (my current one is a little sheer) and love the wash and simple design of this one.  I also have been wanting this tie-neck halter for awhile now and am already imaging perfect summer outfits with pretty skirts and shorts.  I also tried on their shorts in store last weekend and found that they are indeed petite friendly!  I love the distressed styles and slightly longer 2 1/2" inseam.  And how cute is this tropical maxi dress?  Finally, I popped over to check out their sunglasses and couldn't help but notice they have some great styles (been wanting brown aviators and this one is so chic with the brow bar and cat-eye shape)!


J.Crew - 30% off w/ code WEEKEND

I haven't shopped at J.Crew in a long time but with a 30% off deal this weekend, I scooped up this bandeau swimsuit (love the print + free shipping on swim too)!   Eyelet is also big this summer and I'm loving this dress and skirt.  This floral lace sheath also looks like a perfect option for dressing up with a pair of heels and even dressing down with some flats and a denim jacket.  And for looking stylish even when you're feeling lazy, this tee had me at Hello.  :)  Oh, and if you haven't tried their classic No. 2 pencil skirt before, it's on extra sale right now in lots of fun, summery colors!


And a list of a few more sales:

Let me know what you're picking up and if I missed any other good sales!  Have a wonderful long weekend!

Celebrating Milestones

This past year has been one of a lot of changes for my little guy.  From potty training to starting preschool to getting a new baby sister, Dylan has had to grow up in a lot of ways and it's incredible to think of how far he's come in such a short amount of time -- and especially how well he has dealt with everything!  His personality has really blossomed ever since he started talking and he always find the silliness in every moment.  For today's post, I've teamed up with Orajel™ Kids to talk about celebrating our child's smiling milestones, or "smilestones", and personally, I couldn't think of a better example than my Dylan.

Breezy Cover-Up + Garnet Hill Review

Enter my Shopbop giveaway!

cute & little blog | petite fashion | garnet hill high-low hem swim cover-up dress, shoedazzle azurra nude studded sandal heels, blue mirrored aviator sunglasses, tory burch robinson wallet on chain | summer outfit
Dress: Garnet Hill Scoop Neck Hi-Low Swim Cover-Up c/o
Shoes: Shoedazzle 'Azurra' c/o (similar, splurge)
Bag: Tory Burch 'Robinson' Wallet on Chain in New Ivory (similar - 33% off!more options)
Bracelets: Forever 21 Caged Cuff (old, similar), Style Unscripted Screw Bangle c/o (also here)
Necklace: Forever 21 Disc Pendant (old, similar)
Sunglasses: Forever 21 Blue Mirrored Aviators (old, similar)
Lips: MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick

It's been forecasted to rain all week and while we've escaped some of the wet weather, it's still been hot and humid nonetheless.  I wore this dress earlier this week on a day when I felt all my clothes were sticking to me and it was perfectly light and breezy!  The dress made of lightweight rayon and has a beautiful drape that just skims the body.  I love the subtle trapeze shape, high-low hem, and of course, that print!  This dress is technically marketed as a swim cover-up, but the fabric is fully opaque and thus perfect to even wear on its own.  I have no doubt it'll be on regular rotation once the summer heat is here to stay!

This was my first time wearing Garnet Hill so I wanted to share my thoughts as far as sizing was concerned.  I'm wearing this dress in size XS, which is suggested to fit sizes 0-2.  I typically veer on the smaller side of that spectrum and did find that this dress ran about one size too big on me.  I had the hem shortened by about 3" and the sides tapered in about 1" on each side as well.  Off the shelf, it was nearly a maxi length as the back hem grazed at the tops of my ankles.   The spaghetti straps are adjustable (which actually made it nursing friendly for me), so if you're about my height (5' tall) and wanting a maxi dress option, the longer length would be perfect!
