50% off comfortable low sandals + petite picks

ann taylor petite white A line skirt summer outfit

Ann Taylor wedges 5.5, pearl earrings, A-line skirt 0, sweater shell xxs petite – outfit c/o, on on sale!

The energy in the city is gradually starting to pick back up, and it’s inspired me to dress a little more put together than my usual loungewear of the past few months! I had my face mask off temporarily in this empty garden, but will actually keep it on for some pics in the future, in hopes of encouraging others to continue taking this easy preventative measure for public health.

For this post I’m partnering with Ann Taylor, where a big weekend promo is underway with up to 50% off sitewide! AT loyalty program members get 50% off all full-priced items (it’s free to sign up to be a member – use code 50FORYOU after logging in), and non-members get 40% off with code 40FORYOU. All orders over $49 also get free shipping and return shipping!

My sale picks:

  • Lattice midi dress – I could not try this on due to not having a waistline right now, but it looks darling and right up my alley, from the feminine silhouette down to the textured clip dot pattern.
  • Cute yet practical summer shoes (filter by your size) with walking-friendly flat/low heels:
    • Kaylin knotted suede wedges as pictured in this post. True to the reviews, these are flattering & very comfortable off the bat, and I strolled around Boston in them with no breaking in needed. I’m between 5 and 5.5 in most brands and can do either with Ann Taylor – I went up to a 5.5 here in case my feet expand due to the summer heat or pregnancy!
    • Giuliana cork wedges. Similar to the Kaylin but in a very lightweight perforated cork material. Note these run more narrow across the front strap in cmoparison (a 5.5 was too narrow for me).
    • Adley low sandals with a mini 0.5 inch gold heel, in neutral suede or cork with great reviews.
    • Holland block heel sandals as pictured on me below. These have a comfortable fit around the caged straps with a stable heel. Comes in versatile gold, black, white, or a zesty yellow, all of which are easy to dress up or down.
  • Pearlized circle earrings. Pictured in this post. Love these and have been pairing ’em with so much
  • Square neck black tank – simple but sleek basic with the more modern neckline.

This white flower full kirt is not maternity and doesn’t stretch at the waist, so I sized up to a 0 regular. It’s lightweight with a subtly textured dot-like floral pattern, and is fully lined with an invisible back zipper. 0 regular measures: 14″ across the waist, 21″ in length. 

ann taylor petite blush pink ruffle dress try on

I also tried on this romantic ruffled flare dress but it’s on the dressier side and I don’t have many special occasion needs coming up. It is bump friendly due to the elasticized waistline (hidden by the removable sash belt here), at least for my second trimester belly after sizing up 1 from my usual. This dress has a sheer crinkle-textured overlay with a slip lining, and while the two pieces are separate-able, there are little snap buttons inside the outer dress to help hold the lining straps in place. XS petite measures: 13″ across the elastic waistband (stretches to ~17″ across), 39″ length.

    Jean, could you do a post on 2 piece sets that work for us petite women— crop tops and maxis/midis/ or casual pants.
    I’m in my 30’s and want to pull off this look… but do not want to shop at Forever 21 lol.

      Hi Lisa – a couple options! H&M has been making a lot of coordinating prints in tops and bottoms, and I recently tried some from Banana Republic in their eco friendly fabric that are sold separately but can be paired together. ASOS has a lot of 2 piece sets although it runs on the trendy/fast fashion side.

    Hi Jean,
    You are glowing with your beautiful baby bump. I’ve been thinking more about bronzers and your cheekbones look so pretty – any suggestions?
    I have another unrelated question, I’ve had a challenging time finding workout tops that are cropped enough to lay correctly with high waist workout pants as a petite. Any insight? Thank you!

      Hi Christina, thanks so much! I used Kevin Aucoin here which is pricier but it’s lasted me for about 3 years. If you’re into clean beauty I saw Ilia came out with a bunch of new high and low light products!

      For cropped workout tops, I usually wear Lululemon or Old Navy for budget friendly options. I look for “longline” bras which work as cropped tops, also Old Navy has a cute cropped tee shirt right now that I’ve been wearing either knotted or unknotted over leggings.

    Jean, what pillows are those, and what duvet do you use? Are any of those shams? I’m trying to get a cute puffed up bed look without having to get 100 different pillows and shams, haha. My pillows always end up looking so deflated and unshapely, even when I try to stand them up, any tips?

      Hi Lana! Gosh I got the pillows at a mattress store years ago so don’t have a brand to share, but I did get the most overfilled / oversized option for the decorative pillows in the back just so they would stay upright and fluffy. However, those are too full for us to actually sleep on comfortably so they’re just decorative. The shams and duvets are from Pottery Barn and linked in this blog post below the photo : )
