As soon as I saw the sizing (numerical instead of XS, S, M .. etc) I knew that it would be a great fit. I picked size 2 in a shroomy, taupe-gray color. The reason this tee works so well on a small frame is because it is oversized and slouchy on top, but tapers in at the bottom to fit almost snugly around the hips. The length is also great on petites.
Top: H&M Divided tee in size 2 (similar here w/ banded bottom)
Bottoms: H&M thick leggings in size 2 (similar here in Girls Large - a steal!)
Shoes: Zara (similar here)
A note about leggings - I started buying mine from the kids department as of late. Their size 12/14 or L hits my ankles at a perfect length. Splendid makes some great basics for kids, from the same soft and comfy materials as their adult lines. Two picks - jersey tuxedo leggings in sz 14 and super trendy tie-waist leggings. Wonder whether I can pull those off...
The material is a very comfy 50% cotton 50% modal blend. I've been wearing this tee non-stop and can't wait to go pick up more in other colors! I don't like H&M for work clothing, but their basics are solid and very fairly priced. They also have leggings galore! Total cost for tee + leggings + scarf was $30.
These bling Zara sandals are a souvenir from a trip to FL. I was traveling with two other women who loved to shop and we ran to the mall every day during lunch. Almost didn't get these because they're so fancy looking, but a petite Polish girl convinced me that they'd look great dressed down with skinny jeans and a tank. Thanks, PPG!
The Alfani sandals I linked to previously are a ridiculously close dupe. They retail for even less than the Zara ones and are bound go to on sale at Macy's. The pewter and bright blue colors are gorgeous, and it's available in a small size 5!
Wore this outfit to a delicious Turkish brunch at Sofra Boston (swapped in ankle booties). Photo "borrowed" from my boyfriend's blog:
