A couple weeks ago, White House Black Market reached out to see if I wanted to try out some of their petite pieces. As you know, I’m all for brands with petite options, so I happily obliged. I haven’t really shopped at White House Black Market in the past. With that being said, I check their website periodically and have found plenty of really cute pieces. I think I’ve always been hesitant because a. I haven’t ever shopped the brand and didn’t know about sizing, etc. and b. Prices seem high for what it is. I don’t know if I would ever pay full price for anything other than maybe outerwear. Most brands like this, Ann Taylor, Loft, Banana Republic, have sales every week, so they’re a little more appealing… I’m not sure if WHBM does (does anyone else know or shop the brand often)?
They sent their petite straight crop jeans in olive, which are more like your typical skinny cargo pants and I must say, they’re amazing. The 00 fit a bit loose, even after washing and drying them (and with my growing belly). You may need to size down for a tighter fit. I actually like the slightly loose fit because they’re super comfortable. I’m all for comfort these days! The olive color is the perfect muted green, the pockets are functional, and they’re actually extremely flattering on my legs. If you’re in the market for cargo pants, I couldn’t recommend these more. They’re currently on sale and all sizes are still in-stock.
It doesn’t tend to warm up in Portland until the afternoon, so I’ve been running around doing errands in these. They’re a nice alternative to jeans in the summer – More lightweight, soft, and not so tight. You will be seeing me wear these until I physically can’t, lol.
