Halogen petite duster cardigan xxs petite on sale!, outfit from this blog post


The deal: Half yearly sale! So many great picks from my closet:

  • T&B wedge sandals (see on me in brown; full price colors here). Select colors are 35% off including this flattering neutral dusty pink suede
  • ASTR lace midi dress – If you need a special occasion dress, this popular piece is stocked in multiple spring-summer colors, including a beautiful lavender and white for bridal showers / rehearsal dinners! Read my previous review here. I found the XS bodice to fit smaller than most XXS.
  • Halogen lightweight petite long cardigan – one of my favorite cardigans from years past. Lightweight blend for warm weather, on-trend longer duster length, yet is petite proportioned! The exact color I own (tan cobblestone) is 40% off, along with a number of other colors here including stripes!
  • Universally flattering ruched tee dress (see it on me with a bump and without) – love the new colors like the faded green and brighter teal!
  • Levi’s jeans are price matched for 25 – 40% off! I recommend this pair if you want a fitted high waisted style – it runs small, but size up especially if you plan on machine drying.

The deal: 40% off, no code needed.

  • Linen off shoulder top – surprisingly versatile when paired with skirts and high rise shorts! This is the updated version of one of my favorite summer tops pictured above.
  • Petite maxi skirt, white denim shorts, and petite utility jacket mentioned in this blog post!
  • Classic dark fitted skinny jeans in “short” as reviewed in this blog post (fits better after machine wash & dry).
  • Faux leather taupe moto jacket available in petite. I tried this on and actually decided to get this simpler, lighter weight cropped option in xxs regular, and get the sleeves shortened. But if you’re looking for a thicker faux leather moto jacket that will fit a petite frame with no alterations needed, check this petite one out. XXS petite fit me well off the rack.

The deal: 40% off with code FINALLY.
My picks (expecting mamas also check out their maternity line!):

  • Crepe pull on shorts (a surprise 50% off!) for comfort without sacrificing style. For a long pant version, check out these tapered drawstring pants.
  • Fluid wide leg pants – totally different from my usual style, but I’m intrigued!
  • Airy pocket duster sweater (similar to my Halogen one pictured above, fully stocked in petites)

      Hi Catrina! Nordstrom has easy and free returns so I think it would be easiest if you re-order the right size!

    Is the ASTR dress nursing friendly?

    Posted 5.24.19 Reply
    • Jean | Extra Petite wrote:

      Yes – what I do with dresses like that with adjustable strap is to loosen the strap a few inches right before nursing so that it’s easy to pull down one side at a time. I would go up one or two from your usual size though because there is no stretch at the bust. I currently can’t fit into my older dress with my nursing boobs!
