striped sweater blush pink polka dot tulle skirt twofer dress nude louboutin pumps

Dress: Flaunt where you want Twofer dress (size XXS) | Shoes: Louboutin nude pumps (similar HERE)

I die over this dress. Looks like two pieces but in fact it’s all one dress!  Fits perfectly with no alterations.  Feminine and classy – so pretty for the holidays.  The waist has some stretch and slightly loose on me but nothing a few pounds of sweet potatoes won’t fix. Ha!  The bottom portion is very soft – not like a typical tulle skirt.  It’s not poofy either – very tame and just plain gorgeous.

Sweater: Loft poncho (size XXSP) | Shirt: Ann Taylor (old, similar HERE) | Jeans: Banana Republic (size 24P) | Boots: c/o Ann Taylor cognac riding boots

Love this pine green poncho so much.  It’s definitely oversized so I’d recommend sizing down if possible.  I like the fit and makes it perfect to wear over leggings and jeans.  It’s marked down plus an extra 40% off.  You can layer it or wear it alone.  I think it looks so cute with a striped shirt peeking out.  Available in green and black.

This plaid shirt is so soft and comfy!  Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing XSP.  It’s a relaxed fit and can be worn as a tunic with leggings.  Tons of other colors available.  I’ve been loving JCPenney lately!  Make sure to see my outfit HERE for under $100.  I also recently got this burgundy dress and plan on wearing it with these OTK boots (petite friendly and on sale for only $30).  You can even throw this plaid shirt over the dress and tie it at the waist – how cute would that be?

This outfit was from last year but now my ruffle poncho is available in petite sizes AND it’s on sale for only $14.99!  I’m wearing S/M regular and it was oversized on me so I’d recommend getting the petite version if you are similar in size.  Extremely comfortable and love the ruffle detail.

  18. I love all your outfits. I really like all of the hat and sweater ideas as well as the riding boots. Perfect for a petite women like myself. Happy Thanksgiving.

  19. Honestly, I think the dress with tulle skirt and sweater piece is catching my eye. I’ve tried dresses like that on and I look ridiculous but being that we are similar in size and it looks like a perfect fit, I think this dress may work for me! Thanks SO much for this post, I love having so many recommendations (and links that actually work!).
