6 After Christmas Sale Finds For Petite Women
I hope you all had a great Christmas spending time with friends and family. I had a white Christmas for the first time in years and it was so magical and wonderful. After going to college in Arizona and moving to San Diego, I haven’t had the chance to spend nearly as much time with my family in Chicago as I would like. But no matter how much time I spend away there are certain traditions that are still part of every visit here. One of which is hitting the stores for the after Christmas sales. When we were kids our grandma’s Christmas present to us used to be that she would take us out shopping for clothes for the new semester of school. Since then we’ve continued to brave the masses and now I use them to seek out the after Christmas sale finds for petite women.
This year was no different as we found shelter from the cold of a winter Chicago day inside the mall to find some great deals on things we wanted or needed to add to our wardrobes. Searching through the department stores to find those diamonds in the piles of rifled through stuff is part of the struggle and not a bad way to spend a day when spending time outside isn’t an option.
I always make sure to hit up Ann Taylor. My favorite Ponte pants come from their petite section and while they are usually quite pricey, during after Christmas sale they are $25 a piece which means I definitely stock up on all the new colors and styles that they have every year. You can wear these to work with a nice blouse and some dress shoes or wear them with some cute booties and a sweater for a look that is perfect for winter weekends. They are great all year round for everything from casual get-togethers or business meetings and nice dinners. The best part is that the petite sizes come with 25in inseams meaning they fit perfectly without needing to be altered and if that isn’t the dream I don’t know what is.
The hunt for the perfect, super soft sherpa fleece jacket has come to an end. This olive green fleece jacket from North Face was a definite diamond find. If you are as obsessed with super soft things as I am then this jacket will be your new favorite thing to wear. The fleece material on both the inside and outside feels like a dream and can we just take a second to appreciate the gorgeous green color? Its only been a day since I bought it and I already can’t take it off. So cozy and warm, the extra small fits just about perfectly though the sleeves are a tad bit long, as always seems to be my biggest problem.
Who doesn’t love a cute flannel? Lands End makes some of the best, that last no matter how many times you wash or wear them. Usually $50 thanks to awesome after Christmas sales you can snag them for $25 a piece. The petite sizes fit perfectly hitting you in all the right spots such as the shoulders and sleeve length. The perfect amount of relaxed fit that makes them a great option for layering, tucked in, or over leggings. Super soft and oh so warm, you’ll want one in every color of plaid they have. Snag them before they are gone cause they disappear fast!
Stocking up on everyday jeans is a must. The Levi 710 Skinnys are my favorite because of the way they fit and how comfortable they are. Available in every wash and a ton of fun colors too, these are a go-to wardrobe item for me that I use the after Christmas sales to save some money on. You can rock these in all their washes and colors for so many different occasions and never have to worry about them being uncomfortable. Pair them with a nice sweater for a post holiday get together with friends or shopping, or wear them running around on weekends or with a nice blazer for a more business casual look.
If you are looking for new outerwear, there is no place better than Eddie Bauer. A fleece lined pullover with an adorable button up detail grabbed my attention as I was waiting for my family to check out. Its the perfect lightweight sweater to wear in San Diego during the cooler months but would also be perfect for those of you who live in colder temperatures as an extra layer or around the house cozy piece. And at 60% you can’t beat the deal or the quality you’ll get from this sweater that will last for years to come, keeping you warm and stylish.
Now that the Christmas holiday has come to an end its time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve. Ready to ring in 2018 cause I am, but where did 2017 go?! Looking for the perfect dress for the big New Years Eve party you’ve been invited to? Well, this sequined wrap dress is sure to wow the crowd. The juniors department at Macy’s is a gold mine for finding dressed that are cute more to length for a young, modern petite women. This one is perfect for any festive event you have kicking off the new year. The right amount of sparkle and pop while still being fun, and appropriate.
The end of the year, after Christmas sales are definitely a must for snagging great items at a great price, however, it does mean braving some crazy crowds at the malls. But if you are willing to be brave and deal with some lines you can’t definitely find some great deals to save some money are the items you’ve been eyeing all year long.
