6 Style Tips Every Petite Woman Should Read
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Are you under 5 foot four inches and looking for some style inspiration? If so, you’re in luck, as we’re offering helpful fashion advice to complement your tiny frame. Whether you’re a size 00 or a size 16, read our six style tips that every petite woman should read.
Balance Your Bust
Are you a petite woman with a big bust? You might find it difficult to find the right style of clothing for your body shape. You will, however, be happy to learn that there are styles that can highlight your beautiful body shape. For example, empire waists can be the perfect fit, as they can nip beneath the bust-line, while a fitted top can be perfectly combined with a stylish high-low skirt. Try to balance a fitted base with an outer layer, which will highlight your shape rather than detract from it.
Discover the Perfect Shoes
One of the best things about the kids’ section is the affordable footwear, right? You can often find the best sneakers and flats for a fraction of the adult sizes, which can save you a considerable amount of money. However, you might find it difficult to discover a stunning pair of heels, ankle boots or sandals in your size. You will, however, be happy to learn that there are shoes to complement your size. Visit Pretty Small Shoes to discover beautiful footwear for your petite feet.
One common fashion complaint is that some clothes fit perfectly in some places, but not others. Layers are therefore a petite woman’s best friend. You can utilize layers to cover any areas that are little bit too big on the body, so it’s a great way to fake the perfect fit.
The Best Maxi Dress Style
Do you long to wear a maxi dress? Well, there is no reason why you can’t. However, we recommend you avoid a roomy cut that features a lot of material. Balance a voluminous maxi dress at the bottom with a top that is either fitted or tucked. It’s the perfect style for the summer season.
Turn to a Tailor
Wear the perfect fashion for your body by turning to a professional tailor, who can help customize an outfit, jacket or coat to your exact body shape. While it can be a little more expensive, tailoring classic pieces will ensure you look stunning year after year, so it’s certainly a worthwhile investment.
Cuff Your Sleeves and Jeans
Don’t dwarf your petite frame with long-sleeved shirts. Instead, cuff the sleeves to add texture and style to an outfit, which will also enhance your body shape, so you’ll stand out for all the right reasons. The same goes for a long pair of jeans, too. Instead of allowing them to hang over your feet, cuff your jeans or tuck them in for a trendy style.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload!

The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
