Cityscape // Express Petite

_MG_1540

I love duster coats!! And Being petite doesn’t stop me from wearing them. In fact, I believe they lengthen your height when it’s the correct cut. Which Express has done a wonderful job with. When the length falls just right as well as the sleeves, you’ve got a good thing going. I stand at only 5 feet and this coat isn’t drowning me at all.

When I first saw this is in regular sizing, I pulled the smallest size (0 Regular) just to try on. And yes, obviously the cut wasn’t working. But of course I knew that Express carries Petite Sizes online, therefore I jumped on the site and made a purchase.
The color is a beautiful shade of sunset pink, which is perfect for Spring/Summer. And I included Summer because it’s actually been 65 degrees and windy here (Mother Nature has been playing tricks). So this has been my go to jacket. In terms of weight, the fabric is semi-light and airy.

Since I wanted this jacket to stand out, I paired it with a basic distressed tee and skinny denim. I threw on the shoulder bag to keep the shades of pink repeating. In a previous post, I mentioned that I have been wearing blush pink as a neutral, and here it is just that but it also compliments the shade in the jacket. So you can definitely dress the jacket up or down.
I hope everyone’s weekend was well, whether it was a relaxed one or you had an event. Thanks so much for reading. Happy Monday!
