(Hat: Topshop, Top: Zara: Trousers: C/O New Look, Shoes: C/O Linzi, Necklaces: Anna Lou of London & A Weathered Penny)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not particularly petite- or at least I only just make the cut. I stand at a pretty average 5''5, but there's something about the cut and shape of petite trousers that I always find incredibly flattering- especially as I have pretty tiny legs (if anyone can rectify this, I'd be most grateful). This probably explains my love for this tapered paisley pair all the way from New Look's brand new petite collection. Paired with a new black camisole from Zara (look at me go), two of my favourite charm necklaces and my trusty partner in crime (a.k.a black fedora) I'd bet that nobody would guess these trousers cost me less than twenty pounds.

At such an incredibly price point (yes, most of the collection comes under £20 a piece) there's the option to experiment a little, pick up some staple pieces (they have boyfriend jeans, over sized plain t's and little black dresses) and update your wardrobe easily without breaking the bank (plus with festival and holiday season coming around- is there any real reason not to?) Plus, unlike a lot of high street giants- this petite collection has variety, and lots of it (need a new floral playsuit? Crochet shorts? They got this, guys)- and you know what, I love it.

  1. Being 5ft tall, New Look launching petite is so damn good, I have the shortest legs on the planet (almost!) - in fact, these paisley lovelies have already winged their way into my wardrobe <3 it's love! Love your Zara top tooo :) will have to have a browse in store! xo

  2. I've got shorter legs too, I tried on a pair of high waisted trousers in the same cut as you're wearing and they were incredibly comfortable! I'm only trying to buy items that I truly need though so perhaps if I see them again I might consider it.

    Wedges work a treat with that style of trouser too. I have some similar ones that just never get any wear - another reason I need to take more action on not spending ha!
