OOTD - Destroyed Denim

One of the hardest things to shop for as a petite gal are jeans. I can't tell you how frustrated I've been in changing rooms, surrounded by a pile of denim that would all need alterations to fit my short legs properly. Over the years, I've figured out a sneaky little trick to avoid an emotional meltdown in the change room: if you can't find jeans specifically for petites, always look for a 'cropped' cut.  What is cropped for the average sized girl is the perfect length for us petites! These cropped, destroyed jeans from Dynamite are the perfect length for me and because they have a good amount of stretch to them, they actually fit the booty - score!

I've been on the hunt for a white handbag for some time now, and found the perfect white leather tote from Hieleven. The May Top-Handle Bag is made from genuine leather, and is the perfect size for when you need to throw your life into a bag and just go! I continue to be impressed by the quality of Hieleven bags (remember my blush pink bucket bag from the summer), and the price points are pretty incredible - under $100 for a high-quality, leather handbag? Yes please!

What do you guys think?  Do you like the jeans?  What are some tips that you have when buying denim? Let me know!

  2. I share your struggle on buying pants in general. Part of it is because I'm petite like you and have short legs and part of it is because my waist is tiny and my butt and hips are considerably larger. I also use your strategy of looking for petite, short, or cropped style of pants. I like American Eagle jeans for their short selection. You look amazing in yours :) Werk it girl! You are slaying. Can't wait to check out the Eaton Centre for the 10 weeks I'm in Toronto!

  3. Girl I wish I could use the fire emoji in here!!! You look amazing! I'm in love with those shoes, too.

  4. Those jeans look great on you!! Did you cut the bottoms to give the frayed look, or did they come that way?

    I tend to shop for ankle or cropped jeans too, and even then they're still long on me. Short girl problems!
