Hello, it’s great to see you today! Yesterday, Beth shared a variety of chic and classic wedding guest dresses. Today, I am sharing a wedding guest dress perfect for a casual or cocktail-attire summer wedding. After planning and organizing my own wedding three years ago, being a guest at a wedding feels like a vacation! For the few other weddings I have been to, I quite enjoy the ease of being a guest and just enjoying the celebration of the day. 

The Summary

  Today Kelly shows us a variety of petite summer wedding guest dresses

Petite Summer Wedding Guest Dresses

1. Love The Label Poppy Dress

(Neiman Marcus)

For a casual or cocktail-attire summer wedding, a shorter hemline dress that is fun and feels celebratory is in order. And the Poppy Dress by Love The Label fits the bill. This dress is sold as a mini dress, but for a petite like me, it falls just above the knee. I found this dress locally, here in Athens, but you can find it online at Neiman Marcus. I am wearing size xs.

2. Dress Details

To me, being an infrequent wedding guest means not going crazy buying a dress that I will never have the opportunity to wear again. I don’t know about you, but we don’t have much opportunity to attend black tie galas, or super fancy events. So, I like to look for a dress that will fit the occasion and that I will be able to wear again. 

This is where the dress’s details matter. While the shape of this dress is a loose shift, or tent shape, the sharp pleats of the double cap sleeve and neckline give it a more polished look. Similarly, the gathering of the bottom tier of the skirt creates a slight ruffle. If the structure of the dress is simple, or casual, it’s details like this that can elevate it to wedding guest attire.

3. Accessories

Another leveling-up comes with the accessories. To emphasize the bright Kelly green color of the dress and to create a stark contrast, I went with black accessories. The Poppy Dress has a 1960’s vibe to it so I decided to go with a modern take on the block heel sandal. These J.Crew suede Penny Sandals are a few years old, but here are similar styles.

And then my go-to for dressy handbags, my TSATSAS Black Tape clutch. I have gathered a couple similar bags by HOBO, plus one that’s not so similar but that would be a ton of fun with this dress, the Rayne Pleated Clutch by Loeffler Randall.

Petite Wedding Guest Dresses

While I have dressed up this dress with black accessories, I can see wearing this dress for a variety of occasions; pairing it with wedge espadrilles; or flat slide sandals for something more casual. An easy, breezy dress, fit for a variety of occasions, now that’s my kind of summer dress! xo Kelly

This morning, Beth did a deep dive into Talbots' summer collection.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

Hello, it’s great to see you today! This week I am sharing the summer style hack for petites that I often use for styling and wearing maxi dresses. More often than not, petite dress styles are merely shorter hemlines and torso lengths. If the dress has darts on the sides of the bust, sometimes they end up being a little lower. 

For less complicated dress styles, it’s really easy to create a petite maxi dress out of a regular size midi dress: it’s a maxi from a midi. Do note, though, that lengths will be slightly different for all of us! 

The two dress examples I have today are perfect for this maxi dress hack. Empire waist styles and tank-style dresses work the best because they don’t have a traditional waistline to contend with. 

The Summary

  Today Kelly shows us THE summer style hack for petites

  Kelly models two Midi-as-Maxi dresses

  The dresses are shoppable via a text or image widget

  Kelly rounds up her 8 favorite Midi-as-Maxi dresses for Summer

The Summer Style Hack For Petites

1. Empire Waist Dress


An Empire style dress has a fitted bodice that ends just below the bust. We don’t have to worry about the waistline hitting in the correct spot. One thing to look for in a dress like this are adjustable straps. A dress’s straps can make this hack challenging, if the straps are too long. But with adjustable straps, we can adjust them to fit. 

This tie-back dress is from J.Crew. It comes in a couple colors and this sunny yellow block print.

With such a summery, sunny dress I have lace up espadrille wedges from J.Crew Factory.  These neutral wedges go with pretty much everything and I like that they have metallic threads in the canvas.

2. Cotton Tank Dress


I really love a tank or tee shirt style dress. They are so comfortable on hot summer days. I have many shorter styles, but this is my first midi-as-maxi version. 

This cotton tank dress is also from J.Crew. I went with black for a chic, casual look, but this style comes in a few other great summer colors. 

Another thing I love about this style is that you can add a belt to give it structure and shape. Then maybe wear strappy heels to dress this dress up a bit. Or you can keep it casual, style it  with some leather slides. These are old, but this crisscross style is popular again this year, check out some alternative versions.

Yesterday, Beth showed you how to wear one of 2022's biggest Summer trends.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

Hello, it’s great to see you today! As a petite, I mostly shop online. Very few brands carry a wide range of petite styles in their brick and mortar stores. Large retailers like Nordstrom and Macy’s are a little more generous in their petite offerings in store, but the options are still pretty limited.  So, I decided to talk today about my favorite petite brands.

Like many of you, fellow petites, I have come to rely on certain brands for their consistency in petite sizing. This is helpful on one hand because there’s not a lot of guesswork or returns involved; but on the other hand it can limit our wardrobes to those few brands. 

My Favorite Petite Brands

1. Spanx Wide-Leg Pant


Every so often I like to branch out and try a new brand. Aside from Spanx leggings (which I love), this is the first pair of pants I have purchased from Spanx. And I am happy to share that the Spanx Stretch Twill Cropped Wide Leg Pants are a safe bet.

Personally, I think they fit true to size, I am wearing petite xs. The website suggests sizing up one size if you’re between sizes. The color I am wearing (Parchment) is out of stock in petite, but there are other colors available and I would say go ahead and join the waitlist if this is the color you want – they are worth the wait! 


Shop the outfit

2. Spanx

Wide leg cropped styles for petites are often hit or miss. Many petites feel this style will not work for a shorter frame. And I totally understand that – I used to feel the same way. In fact, I am pretty particular in the way this style fits: I look for a crop that is not too short, with a high rise and a leg opening that is not too wide. A tall order indeed! 

The high rise helps to elongate the leg, which for a shorter person, helps to make this style feel a lot more wearable. 

While Spanx may not have the plethora of pants to choose from that say, J.Crew or Banana Republic might have, their popularity and product offering is growing. Having one more go-to petite brand for pants is a great thing for mixing up your wardrobe. 

So add Spanx to your list of go-to online brands when you’re looking for petite pants in a wide range of sizes. I also want to share the brands I shop online and what I usually go to those brands for; the petite items that I have found to be consistent in their sizing and fit.

3. My Go-To Brands for Online Petite Shopping

J.Crew is probably my top shop for petite wardrobe staples like button ups, blazers, chinos and skirts. 

Classic Petite Finds at J.Crew

Ann Taylor is great for petite skirts and blouses. I have found their petite pants to be kind of hit or miss, but often worth a try. 

Petite Finds at Ann Taylor

Banana Republic is a reliable option; especially for petite dresses and pants. 

Petite Finds at Banana Republic

For denim, I typically stick to Madewell. Their petite denim is always on point: quality denim, well made and reasonably priced. Recently, Gap has come into my view as an affordable petite denim option; especially the High Rise Vintage Slim Jean style. 

Go-To for Petite Denim

Thank you for stopping by today! I am sure most of you are aware of my go-to brands for petites; and I hope that I have given you some inspiration to branch out beyond your go-to brands to add some fresh, fun, reliable petite styles to add to your wardrobe.

Yesterday, Beth showed you how to dress the Spring-to-Summer transition.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

Hello, happy Thursday to you! To me, summer fashion isn’t complete if linen isn’t a big part of the equation. Especially since moving to Georgia! In the heat of summer, wearing a dress or skirt has been my go-to date night outfit. But with linen, you can wear pants and a blazer, look polished and feel cool enough to sit outside for dinner al fresco. I love having options!  So today, I'm going to show you how to wear linen suit separates this summer.

The Summary

  Today's featured items are linen suit separates from J.Crew Factory

  Kelly modeled the suit, and pulled together 2 alternates

How To Wear Linen Suit Separates This Summer

1. Linen Suit Separates

(J.Crew Factory)

These Linen Drawstring Pants from J.Crew Factory are just the ticket. I love these pants because while they are pretty casual, you can easily dress them up with a Linen Blazer in matching white, some strappy sandals and a flowy camisole. The petite sizing is spot on; I am wearing petite 0.

This is my first white blazer. For my introduction into the world of white blazers, a summertime linen blazer is the perfect way to start. This version from J.Crew Factory is at a perfect price point and it is made well. As with the pants, the petite fits true to size; I am wearing petite 0.

If white is not for you, this Linen Drawstring Pant and Linen Blazer combo each come in hot pink and light pink – fun colors for spring and summer.

2. Summer Cami

(J.Crew Factory)

Linen is a great summer fabric to mix up with something shiny like silk or satin. It’s a fun play on textures that is cool and refreshing, perfect for summer. A popular item, this washable silk camisole from J.Crew is mostly sold out already, but here are three other options, in a range of colors.

3. Comfortable Summer Sandals


I have had this particular pair of Madewell sandals for about 7 years and they still look and feel great. With a block heel, they are comfortable and easy to walk in. A comfortable heeled sandal in a neutral light brown or tan is a perfect warm-weather option; they go with virtually everything! I have rounded up a few more currents, but similar Madewell styles.

I am really shopping my closet for accessories today! My top handle bag is from another company I really like for handbags and wallets, HOBO. Their designs are interesting and the leather is unbelievably beautiful. This style is from 2007/2008, but they have some similar current designs that are gorgeous.

I'm starting a new round of FASTer Way to Fat Loss on May 23rd.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

Hello! Today we are taking a stroll through the Georgia State Botanical Gardens. It’s a beautiful spot here in Athens, and the weather is perfect for an afternoon walk through the flowers and trees.  A walk outdoors means I'm going with a relaxed put-together look today.

The Summary

  Today's featured item is a pair of boyfriend chinos from J.Crew for a relaxed put-together look

  The pants are modeled, and Kelly pulled together 2 alternates

Relaxed Put-Together Look

1. Boyfriend Chino Pants


As the temperatures begin to heat up, my jeans start to find their way to the back of my closet, while lightweight chinos and linen pants move to the front. Today’s post focuses on the Boyfriend-fit Chino Pant; a new chino fit from J.Crew. These pants have a lower rise and an overall looser fit for cool comfort. 

The waistline of the Boyfriend Chino Pant hits just at the hip, so it’s a refreshing change from the high-waisted pants that have ruled for the past couple years. Slouchy, with a relaxed fit; the light cotton chino fabric is soft yet these pants hold their shape well and still look fresh after hours of walking around in the heat. I am wearing The Boyfriend Chino Pant in a Petite 25.

2. Denim Chambray Shirt


On warmer days, I love to use a chambray button up as a second layer instead of a light jacket or sweater. A chambray shirt will go with all kinds of outfits and they’re lighter to carry around than a denim jacket. 


Shop the outfit

3. Cotton Tank Top


Today’s outfit is all about comfortable, casual style. This simple cotton tank from J.Crew is sold as a cropped tank top. I wanted to avoid too much of a “crop top” look, so I sized up one size from my usual regular size xs, to a small. The length hits right at my hip, so no crop happening, but it does it at just the right spot so I don’t need to tuck it in.


Shop the outfit

4. Top Handle Tote Bag


This Fiona Top Handle Tote Bag from J.Mclaughlin is great to carry along for a shopping trip, or a walk around the Georgia State Botanical Gardens. The shoulder/crossbody strap makes it easy to go hands free. And the bag is roomy enough to carry my essentials, along with my denim shirt when it got too hot to wear it. 

I love the bamboo top handle on this bag and I also love the camera strap-style removable strap. Camera-strap straps are definitely on-trend this year; I see so many bags with removable straps in fun patterns and colors that contrast with the bag itself. It’s a fun way to add a color contrasting color pop, or to color coordinate with an outfit. 


Shop the outfit

5. Boardwalk Fisherman Slide Sandal


Fisherman sandals are everywhere this summer. Madewell has several cute versions. This Boardwalk version is a flat slide with a padded sole, which makes them super comfortable and easy to wear all day long.  

I am wearing the English Saddle color, which Madewell does a lot of – so they coordinate really well with their bags and belts. The sandal also comes in Ashen Sand and Black. I am tempted to buy the other two colors! They are really cute, versatile, comfortable sandals that will get a lot of wear this summer. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today, see you again next week!

Yesterday, we featured a collection of great Mother's Day gifts for the cook in your life.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

Hello! It’s great you’re here today. Shirtdresses are one of my favorite dress styles, and they come in so many varieties; straight or full-skirted, long sleeve, short sleeve, sleeveless…you’re sure to find a style that works for you.   But being petite, sometimes it's challenging to get the sizing just right.  So here's how to size a shirtdress for petites. 

The Summary

  Today's featured item is a shirtdress from J.Crew Factory

  The dress is modeled, and I pulled together 2 alternates

How to Size a Shirtdress For Petites

1. Shirtdress

(J.Crew Factory)

This floral shirtdress from J.Crew Factory is sold as a mini dress, but they don’t offer it in petite sizing. So for us petites, the length ends up hitting just above the knee, rather than mid-thigh. I am wearing a regular size 0.

Despite it not being a petite size, the only real difference is the length of the skirt. The sleeves and waistline hit at just the right spot. The dress fits TTS.

2. Belt

For a looser, more casual look, you can forgo a belt. Since we were headed to dinner, I went with a belt to accentuate the waistline. My plain, warm gray-colored belt hints to the wood tones in my wood and cane clutch. 

Tip: When my belt is too stiff to wrap or tuck the tail under, I use a small piece of double sided Scotch foam mounting tape to keep the belt tail in place. As long as I remove the tape after each wear, I haven’t had any issues with tape residue on my leather belts. 

This belt is old, but here are similar options: 

Belt 1 | Belt 2 | Belt 3

The belt options are what can really change up the look of a shirtdress and this is probably the most fun part of shirtdresses in general, you can get creative with your accessories: wide belts, skinny belts, wrap belts – there are so many options!

3. Accessories

At the first blush of Spring, I am in my closet pulling all of my espadrilles from the dark corners of winter storage and swapping their placement with my winter shoes on the front shelves. I love espadrilles. Flats, wedges, lace up, mules, slip ons – I love them all. 

The latest addition to my ever-growing collection are these lace up wedges from J.Crew Factory. They are a natural canvas color (so they go with literally everything) and they have light metallic threads woven into the canvas. These wedges fit TTS and are very comfortable for walking around. 

J.McLaughlin is a great go-to brand for cane, wicker and woven bags. Recently, I went for this Genevieve Wood and Cane Clutch. 

I love the wood frame of this clutch. The wood adds such a great natural look and feel to any outfit. Beautifully made and perennially on trend for summer, I know this wood and cane clutch will see years of use.

Yesterday, Beth showed you 5 comfy casual outfits perfect for the upcoming Spring-to-Summer transition.  Click the title or image below to read the article.

After a week of thunderstorms followed by unseasonably cold temperatures, I am happy to get out and about in a more spring appropriate outfit! While I keep my overall silhouette somewhat classically prep, I do love to play with prints and color. Today’s outfit is an example of the latter.  I'm going to show you how to wear the spring monochrome trend in 2022.

My husband Alex and I went to check out a barbecue and burger place here in Athens called White Tiger Gourmet. It’s a casual spot housed in an old grocery store, built in 1905. With shaded outdoor tables and delicious food, I know we'll be coming back here all summer long!

The Summary (TL;DR)

  Today's featured items are a smocked puff sleeve linen top and Kate pants from J.Crew

  The outfit is modeled, and Kelly pulled together 3 alternatives

  The takeaway fashion tip:  try a monochrome outfit with different shades of the same color

How to Wear The Spring Monochrome Trend 2022

1. J.Crew Smocked Puff Sleeve Linen Top


Monochromatic outfits are really easy to put together – especially when you mix shades of the same color. There is no wrong way to do this. Shades of the same color will always go together.

Today, I went for mixing shades of green.

As soon as the temps warm up, I am all about linen. Every spring and summer I am looking to add to my linen top collection and this new smocked puff-sleeve top from J.Crew is a great addition. The ruffled neckline and puffed sleeves add a feminine touch, which is a really fun difference from many of the camp shirt styles found in linen shirts. 


Shop the outfit

2. Kate Pant


I have been getting a lot of wear out of these versatile straight-leg pants from J.Crew. The bi-stretch cotton is light and super comfortable. The Kate pant comes in a variety of colors that are perfect for year-round wear.

3. Accessories

(Madewell, Assorted Similars)

With a monochromatic outfit, you can go monochrome with your shoes too, or you can get a little creative and throw in a pop of color, or print. I went with these snake print loafers (old), Similar here, here and here. I do consider snake print in neutral colors to function as a neutral – so you can really get away with adding them to a variety of colors and outfits for a little print pop. 

I love the square shape of this Transport Tote from Madewell. It’s just big enough for my essentials. I have detached the crossbody strap to make a handbag. This particular Madewell bag is about 10 years old, and after years of near constant use, it has aged really well.

Alex and I moved to Athens the summer before the Pandemic; with moving and organizing our home renovation, we haven’t had much opportunity to explore our new city until this summer. So I am really looking forward to getting out there and seeing (and sharing with you) all that Athens has to offer! Thanks so much for stopping by today, take care and be well! xo Kelly

Remember, Thursdays are a 2-post day.  Beth pulled together her 10 favorite graphic tees for Spring and showed you 5 different ways to wear them, including budget alternatives.  Click the title or image below to check out the post!

Hello! It’s wonderful you’re here for my inaugural post on Style At A Certain Age! I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share what I wore during my recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina.  Packing for this trip was challenging for me for a couple of reasons: the forecast called for rain and cooler temps; plus, I haven’t done much sightseeing in the last few years which translates to I haven’t been wearing “going out” shoes for extended periods.   This all amounted to packing for comfort, style, and possible rainy weather. Fortunately, our hotel was centrally located!  So, I wanted to show you some of my best vacation outfits from the trip.

Evening Out

My husband Alex and I chose one of our three nights for a special dinner out. We chose a very highly recommended restaurant called 167 Raw. It’s a wonderful seafood restaurant, with super fresh seafood preparations, raw oysters, and chic cocktails. If you’re in Charleston, I highly recommend you make a stop at 167 Raw.

Little Black Suit

This ensemble is not a suit per se, as the blazer and the pants are not exact matches. But it works!  A black blazer is a wardrobe staple. I get a ton of use out of this blazer; it’s perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans and it works perfectly over a dress or with a skirt. 

Parke Blazer | Regent Blazer (similar) | Unstructured Blazer (similar) | Pintuck Camisole (similar) | Shirred Top (alternative) | Drapey Top (similar) | Cameron Slim Crop Pant in 4 Season StretchCameron Pant in Bi-Stretch Cotton (similar) | Vince Camuto Enella Sandal | Vince Camuto Saprenda Sandal (similar) |  Nine West Sandals (similar) | TSATSAS Tape Bag | Hobo Waver Wristlet (similar) | Hobo Brave Leather Clutch (similar) 

With a classic little black suit, you can get creative with your choice of top. A strappy camisole is a perfect option. Another great option to achieve this look is with a drapey top, tucked in.  I went with this top by Frame, from Nordstrom. It’s no longer available, but there is a similar version still available. 

Straight-leg cropped pants in a heavenly four-season stretch fabric from J.Crew are a dream to wear. These pants are so versatile. They dress up beautifully, but they also look great with a t-shirt and denim jacket. The straight leg cropped fit is perfect for a petite frame and J.Crew’s Cameron Slim Crop Pant fits true to size. 

My favorite shoe to wear with a little black suit is a strappy sandal, with a little bit of a heel. These Vince Camuto heels are super comfortable and easy to walk in for blocks! 

For a classic neutral outfit, you can go with almost any color handbag you like. For this special evening out, I decided to go with the quietly elegant black Tape Bag by TSATSAS.

Sightseeing in Beautiful Charleston

Fortunately, we did end up with a sunny day to stroll around the historic Broad Street neighborhoods of Charleston. You can’t help but be immersed in the history of Charleston and our nation, as you walk the cobblestone streets amongst the 18th and 19th-century architecture. 

My favorite places to tour are the cemeteries and graveyards. This has a lot to do with the fact that cemeteries are quiet places; one can contemplate and get lost in imaginations of times long passed. The south has some of the most beautiful cemeteries; the spring flowers add color and the Live Oak trees draped in Spanish Moss really set the tone. 

Walking tour

For our self-guided walking tour, we had beautiful sunny skies and warm spring temperatures. It was the perfect day to wear a skirt! Spring is my favorite time of year, especially for fashion. There are so many options with skirts, dresses, shorts, and jeans – you can mix them up with a variety of shirt styles to create fun, colorful, bright looks. 

We started in the morning, so I have a denim jacket, which is my favorite go-to light jacket for Spring. I haven’t yet come across an outfit that doesn’t work well with a denim jacket!

Gingham is one of my favorite prints all year long. But somehow as soon as Spring arrives, gingham comes to the forefront of my mind. This olive and white gingham button-up feels especially appropriate for the shoulder seasons, the color is just perfect for Spring.

This linen-cotton pull-on skirt from J.Crew Factory is a no-brainer for me. I have this skirt style in a few colors and this cream-color version is by far my favorite. As a neutral, the cream color will work with nearly every top in my closet. It’s lined and so comfortable – plus it has pockets! You will definitely see this skirt on repeat all Spring and Summer long. 

These Vehla Dixie sunglasses are my new favorites. I love the lightweight tortoise frames. I especially love the lightly tinted, sage-colored lenses. 

I haven’t walked for miles in closed shoes since the pandemic, so my feet have become more sensitive to shoes (anyone else have this issue?). So I went for an ultra-comfy pair of crisscross sandals.

These olive green sandals are from last summer, but I’ve given you similar styles.

My Favorite Crossbody Everyday Bag

A crossbody or shoulder bag is a must for a day seeing the sights. My favorite, most-used bags are all from Madewell. I absolutely love their leather goods, they make well-priced, quality bags, shoes, and belts that last for ages.

This is the Sydney Crossbody Bag. It has a removable shoulder strap for versatility. Its rounded, structured hobo shape is updated for this year, and its classic styling will be a go-to for years to come.
