Discovering petite bloggers is kind of a side hobby of mine. I like asking questions and figuring out what other petites do to find awesome clothes and stay stylish. Today, I’m featuring Brooke, a fellow petite and one of three awesome people at Pumps and Push-ups. Read on to learn about this amazing Southern belle.
Name and Blog: Brooke for Pumps and Push-Ups
Describe yourself and your personal style: Classic and glam. I am from the South, where tailored clothes and dazzling details are commonplace. As much as I love to jump on to some trends, I typically stick to classic pieces and inspiration from brands like J.Crew and Kate Spade.
Biggest fashion/clothing misconception about women like you: That it is easy to find clothes, or we can wear anything. So not true, the actual list of brands I can wear are limited and walking into a store and grabbing my size is often impossible. Blazers and jackets almost always consume me, finding a good one is a struggle.
Favorite trend of the moment: I am loving leopard accessories and oversized tops. I purchased a pair of leopard flats recently that I can’t seem to take off, they go with everything!! Oversized tops are a favorites at the moment too since I’m trying to style a growing baby bump, chic and comfortable!
Best fashion/style advice for women like you: Find brands that fit you well and go to them often. My biggest fashion mistake was wearing clothes that didn’t fit me properly. In high school I used to walk around in jeans that were way too long all the time, the hems would get tattered and I looked a mess. If you love something enough to have it tailored, invest in that!
Favorite stores: Banana Republic, ASOS, H&M, and Ann Taylor Loft, mainly because I can always count on these store to have my size and find a great fit without tailoring. The plus side, ASOS and Loft carry petites in maternity!
Recommendations of Petite stores/brands: For shoes, Nordstrom and Sole Society, they have a great selection of size 4-5 shoes!
