Review: Gap's 2013 Slim Cropped Pants


I had been skimming through Gap and Banana Republic's websites sporadically for business-casual pants and white tailored blouses. The only items that caught my eyes were the Slim Cropped Pants under Gap's Premium Pant Collection. *Slim and cropped?* Even the name sounded perfect for someone petite like me! Better yet, it was as if I had hit jack-pot after reading that most reviews claimed they ran small and suggested to size up! When Gap recently ran their 30% off promo, I immediately ordered a khaki pair and this after seeing how well it looked on Wendy (also a fellow petite)! After using my reward credits, I paid about $11 for both. If interested, these pants are still available in 00P online!
those reward credits are finally put to good use :)

*For reference, I'm 4'11" and ~95 lbs.*

Spring Green: Seafoam Blouse & Chartreuse Lace Shorts (and Updates)

I want to share a quick post and some updates since they've been long overdue. These pictures were taken a few days ago when the weather was pleasant unlike the unrelenting rain pouring outside as I'm writing this.
Shirt: Marshalls
Shorts: Forever 21
Shoes: Nike Outlet
Sunglasses - Marshalls; Ring - Claire's; Earrings - Forever 21

Weather talk aside, I rarely have any luck finding items I adore at Marshalls (or its sister store TJ Maxx). However, this sleeveless blouse has got to be one of my favorites! The floral crochet peter pan collar is a lovely embellishment while the polyester material is breezy and easy to care for. Although, I'd caution not to machine-dry any crochet items as they're prone to wrinkle and shrinkage.
