Styling the petite cropped trouser

Finding the right fit for petite trousers can be difficult at the best of times, let alone 'cropped' petite trousers. If you get the wrong fit they can drown you and make you look even shorter, and none of us want that do we?! 

The cropped trouser is here to stay and it can add so much versatility to your wardrobe. Keep it casual with a tee or dress them up for a night on the town. I've opted for somewhere in between for this look, perfect for meeting friends for coffee or a lunch date, great for a day in the office too perhaps?

This floral yellow blouse with fluted sleeves is super pretty and comfy to wear. It's actually from Primark and you can find it here. It's very sheer so you'll need a nude coloured bra or maybe a vest type top with thin straps underneath, personally I just go for the bra, you can see it slightly when you get up close and personal but that doesn't bother me.

These trousers are from Dorothy Perkins but I can't see them online to link to. There's some similar here but without the tie detailing.

The cropped trouser can instantly make you look slimmer with the eye drawn to the ankles. Cropped are great to show off fabulous shoes and there are so many different styles. I prefer the straighter leg style which are loosely fitted then taper slightly to the ankle. I have some similar ones in burgundy  (here) that I wore to London Fashion Weekend.

You really do have to be careful though if you are petite. Shop around to find the perfect style to suit your body shape as with the shorter hem if you're not careful some will make your legs look even shorter. Also, try and wear a shoe that shows the top of your foot to elongate the legs a little more.

I'm a short arse 5 foot 2 but I think these work for me!

Micro needling & skin renewal with Swiss clinics


Skin roller \ micro needling \ Swiss clinics \ beauty \ review \ anti-aging \ skin renewal \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

I've talked about my skin, and the problems I have with it, on this blog many a time. As I've gotten older my skincare routine has become really important to me and I'm now throwing everything at it, going real hard core. I mean I'm not literally just throwing any old thing at it obviously, but really considering what I'm putting on my skin these days and what benefits it has. I've brought in all the anti-aging big guns, retinols, vitamin c, and all sorts of acids. I wrote a couple of posts a while back about my routines which you can read here and here but I will be doing a more up to date post on my current skincare including all the products I'm now using. More recently I've also added a skin roller into the mix. Even though I've only recently added it, I've been thinking about it for quite some time. Last year I had a collagen PIN treatment at a clinic and knew then that I wanted something similar that I could do at home.

A little bit of Spain at home

I love Spain and I miss being there. Terribly. For those that don't know we lived there for a little while some years back and feel like it's our second home. Last weekend Nick and I had a real yearning to be there, so what was the next best thing? Stick on the Gipsy Kings and have a Spanish style feast of course.

Face masks I'm using right now

One of the great things in life is a good old 'at home' pamper session, Let's face it, not all of us can afford costly trips to a salon but we can afford to give ourselves a bit of TLC in the comfort of our own home. A hot bubble bath followed by a mani, pedi, face scrub, then pop on a face mask and relax, pure bliss. It should be a once a week ritual at least because taking time out for yourself is good for the body and the soul.

I don't always post on here when I attend launches of new bars/restaurants, I mostly share on social media but I had such a lovely time at the Gourmet Burger Kitchen the other night that I thought I'd share it with you.

Wedding florals

Will I ever stop buying off the shoulder outfits. The answer is a big fat NO of course. In fact the dress I bought before this one was also off the shoulder.
