Cute Hats for the Kentucky Derby!

Hi Ladies,
The Kentucky Derby is this week: May 2-3, 2014! I don't want to come off as a cynic, but after the Royal Wedding, I didn't think it was possible to find cute, dressy hats. Then, as I was poking around, I came across the middle hat below. Then I saw more at Nordstroms! I guess Princess Beatrice and Eugenie did have better options. (Although any visit to the Derby will prove that we Americans have committed our fair share of "hat-related-crimes-against-fashion.")

I also want to let you know about another resource for petites: Bonjour Chica! She posts reviews on petite clothing, as well as introductions to other petite bloggers through her series:  

Petite Fashionistas à la Mode

This week she is featuring me: click here! I would love for your to checkout her blog (not just because I'm partial to today's content). :)


Digital Darlings

Last year, "selfie" was word of the year. As bloggers we're all wrapped up in our online personas, it's non-stop being on social media and creating content, all the while being fabulous. Does this take a toll on bloggers and fashionistas alike? Maybe... This week we have a lot of both sides of the coin in terms of fashion, style, and living online.

Naughty and Nautical (Try the Nautical Trend for Spring)!

Spring Trend: Nautical Dresses > $100
Hi Ladies,
It's time for a new wardrobe theme at Petite Career Girl...Nautical! It's perfect for spring and there is always a large selection in the stores. However, for some reason I never wind up buying any. Therefore, I've made a concerted effort to pick out Nautical inspired pieces from my closet and the stores, that mix n' match well. Here was my strategy:

A Riot of Color: Spring Cleaning in the K. Household

Hi Ladies,
In honor of spring, I decided to do a little cleaning...not the boring kind, like dusting and mopping, but the fun kind, like organizing my jewelry! I know some bloggers have figured out how to store all of their jewelry in drawers and little boxes, but I've decided to go with the "anti-minimalist" route. I call it "A Riot of Color", which I'm sure I've heard somewhere else, and it falls under the philosophy of "If it's it off"!

I bought all of the storage items from Home Goods, Target and Ikea. I hope you have fun decorating and would love to see how you do it!

I also want to send a special shout out to Elba at Live Colorful! She has the best taste in colors and I always find her site inspiring. Check out her post on spring decoration: here!
