Hello hello ~ ending the week here with this easy pairing of a long tunic over slim jeans. This soft top with handkerchief hem is a loose casual fit on me in xs, great for lounging comfortably in at home (or on long plane rides) over leggings. My Cole Haan Marina boots are all sold out, but I wanted to mention the below-the-knee “Barnard” version again, currently on sale for 40% off. I haven’t tried this on personally, but reading through the reviews it sounds very petite-friendly! The lower shaft & heel height makes them potentially work appropriate, unlike OTK boots. One shopper who gave a rave review mentioned she is 5 feet tall with narrow 12″ calves, and the boot in size 5.5 hit about 1 inch below the back of her knees.
Unrelated restock alert, the bow-back dress I posted about previously is now back up in a new pink color, available in all sizes! You can read my post here including the measurements of an XS, which I found to be pretty petite-friendly off the rack.
Nordstrom is also having a sunglasses sale, with markdowns or price-matching on several designer styles! In addition to my 51mm Clubmasters worn above and my 58mm aviators, here’s a few other options currently on sale:
– The Illesteve Leonard (15% off) which is popular for small faces; measuring 47-22-140
– Gucci Sunglasses in black or brown (50% off). A reviewer mentioned these are lightweight and a good fit on her smaller nose bridge; 56-15-135
– Prada sunglasses (15% off) in a classic cat eye style; 54-22-140
– Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses (40% off), a rounded cat eye; 58-14-140
– Valentino Rockstud sunglasses in brown tortoise or black (15% off); 53-19-140
If you’re unfamiliar with sunglasses measurements, the three dimensions represent “lens width – nose bridge width – temple length.” My biggest sunglasses fit issue is my flatter nose bridge, so personally prefer either styles with a narrower bridge width (usually 20mm or below), or, styles with adjustable nose pads like most Ray-Bans where I can manually bend the nose pads closer. I used to have several pairs of sunglasses that sat lower on my nose and rested on my cheeks – I thought this was normal until a friend told me that cheek resting was a clear sign of improper fit! Width wise, I don’t mind my lenses a little over-sized, so have shades ranging in lens widths of 51 to 58mm.
Hope you guys have a great weekend ~ Nick and I will be scrambling to get our holiday shopping done, and attending a few last festivities before heading out to warmth on the West coast! Thank you to Nordstrom sunglasses for partnering on this post.
