    How Petite Women Wear Wide-Leg Pants

    It’s kind of funny when my followers meet me in real life and tell me they can’t believe I’m so short. LOL!

    Best Summer Look for Petite Women || Jean Shorts, Feminine Blouse and Booties

    I always enjoy a simple look for summer and prefer shorts to skirts for the practical reasons.

Jean shorts are always a timeless piece, adding a cool and fun vibe to a look. For petite women, well-fitted and high-waisted denim shorts can elongate our legs. For example, look me in those high-waisted jean shorts. It seems like I am 5’6″! LOL, in fact, I am only 5 feet. Of course, I can pair my denim shorts with a T-shirt and flats. But, I always love to add some feminine touches…
