"Fashion is architecture; it is a matter of proportions"- Coco Chanel

Being petite and trying to find clothes can be tricky. Some places I think are great for petite women are the following: Ann Taylor, ASOS, Forever 21, Dress Barn, Banana Republic, and Talbots. There are plenty more, but those are ones that come to mind. Most of these have petite sections.

Pants: Pants can make you look longer or shorter. For petite women I think it would be best to stay far away from crop pants. I also stay away from high waisted pants. My torso is short enough. Try flared legs or Skinny pants.

Skirts: Anything past the knee for me is a definite no. A great rule of thumb. It makes a huge difference! Skirts below the knee make me appear heavier. My fave style of skirt is the pencil skirt. A-Line and pleated are great choices too!

Blouses: Try pin stripes in vertical patterns. These make the person appear long and lean. I try to avoid horizontal stripes as they make me seem wider. Get rid of loose and baggy clothes. They do not flatter our petite frame. I love collared dress shirts, they look great on petite women. Add a belt to your top to cinch the waist to show off your waistline. Great rule of thumb is to always accentuate the waistline! Hint: the thrift store has an awesome selection of belts and they run .50 cents to a buck!

Dresses: I love wrap dresses. I think this works for any woman out there. This most definitely includes us petite girls!

Coats/blazers/jackets: Go for something that defines your waist. For me if the coat or blazer falls below my torso it makes me look shorter.

Shoes: invest in nude shoes! I could never have too many nude shoes. These elongate your legs and make the petite woman appear taller. And your legs don't look so bad either ^_~

Have fun with your wardrobe. Express who you are. If you feel good then you look good!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
