29 May Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale
Other than Nordstrom’s yearly huge Anniversary Sale at the end of the summer and its two half-yearly sales in spring and fall, this retailer doesn’t often hold department spanning sales, which makes events like these ideal opportunities for scoring significant savings on all sorts of items. Nordstrom’s springtime half-yearly sale is on now through 6/2. Scroll below for Petiterie’s picks, including selections from their petite offerings plus some more fabulous finds of other kinds.
My hands-down favorite on-sale discovery: this striking, perfect-for-petite-proportions chevron-quilted mini backpack in an exceptionally gorgeous shade of cobalt blue.
This linen ruffle midi dress projects perfectly relaxed and sophisticated all at once. It’s a Boden design, on sale here in a rather fantastic hue that conjures up a dark rinse denim.
A sleek salad-for-lunch-sized reusable lidded bowl like this one will have you rocking your health-conscious, enviro-friendly vibe, with your lunch from home looking extra spiff for the occasion.
This is one of those almost magical versatile, interesting accessories that is just really, really good at pulling a casual look together – I’d wear it with jeans or the like. The slim width, small-in-scale print, and the fact that it’s adjustable make it a great choice for a petite wrist. It’s reversible, too.
J Crew’s iconic “everyday chambray” button-down is a timeless classic that can serve in so many ways: on its own, under a sweater, unbuttoned half way with a cute tee or tank underneath, as a light jacket, and even as a beach cover up, to name a few.
I’m almost certain I’ve featured this très French-looking tee before. It’s lovely for under a blazer, or all by its lonesome with wide legs for a nautical look.
These beauties are loaded with details that make them a super choice for petites: a skinnied-up version of a block heel keeps the volume appropriate for smaller proportions, the notched vamp maintains the foot coverage in proportion (and keeps the shoe comfy to wear), too, and the notching and neutral color keep the eye going, creating a lengthening of effect for the legs.
