Hope you all are off to a fabulous weekend!
|Blazer: LOFT Petites (Available here)|
Today’s outfit is what I wore for casual Friday at work yesterday. I’m always a huge fan of looks that combine hard and soft edges, and this outfit does just that. I paired cuffed “boyfriend” jeans and a tweed blazer with a ruffly blouse for a mix of masculine and feminine touches.
The purple bag and flower cuff are also offset by the chain link necklace and peep-toe booties.

Cuff: Claire’s (old)
|Blouse: LOFT Petites (old)|
The last time I featured this blouse on the blog, I talked about how I had decided it just wasn’t me. I had it in my sale/donation pile, but I had never gotten around to getting rid of it. While it’s still not quite ideal, I realized that I really liked the way it looked in this look.
|Jeans: The Limited Petites (Available here)|
|Purse: Target (Similar here)|
While this shirt has been around for a while, the jeans are new and I’m loving how comfy they are! They are my first purchase from The Limited’s new petite line. I am loving that the jeans have the same great stretch as their main jeans line, just perfectly proportioned!
I am looking forward to more purchases of the shorter lengths of skirts and pants in the petite line, but I am disappointed in The Limited’s decision to cap their sizing of tops and jackets at a large or size 12 (bottoms also cap at a 12). I wish more companies would realize that there are petite gals who wear wear the larger range of straight sizing and want more options (that don’t require a ton of alterations)!

Have any of you petites checked out The Limited’s new line? Are you a fan of mixing masculine and feminine aesthetics in an outfit?
