How to Shop the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale with Intention

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how I shop intentionally and use my capsule wardrobe philosophy to prevent buyer’s remorse. I’m going to use an example to highlight this today. Currently, the Nordstrom  Half-Yearly Sale is going on. Sales can be a rabbit hole for over-shopping, over-spending and creating situations of shopping regret and guilt. Here are a few starting tips to reduce these shopping habits and shop with intention. I’ll be adding to this discussion in the upcoming months as I incorporate my KonMari philosophy intentionally into my business (more info here).

Tips for Shopping Intentionally: 
  • First off, don’t scroll down or open Nordstrom.com UNTIL you’ve read this section!
  • Know what you own – I recommend completing the KonMari Method (more info here too) to truly know what you own, what you love and then move forward from there. If that’s not of interest at the moment, take an inventory of your closet and write it down on a piece of paper (yes, paper since it helps us better reflect than electronic files)
  • Make a list of what you NEED – Write down what you need in your closet for your work life and home life. Be realistic with this list. What do you NEED to function day-to-day.
  • Compare the 2 lists – Now take these 2 lists (what you own and what you need) and compare them to one another. Where are there gaps? Get rid of extra items that you don’t need (or you don’t love) and make a list of what you need to add to your wardrobe.

Now you can keep reading and find items on this NEED list. Remember, don’t purchase the item UNLESS you LOVE it and it FITS well.

Cardigans/Jackets:
  • My go-to 4-way cardigan is on sale in multiple colors. Here is the sheer color for spring/summer. Here is the wine color perfect for fall/winter.

6 Ways to Style a Lace Top

Lace tops are one of my favorite top designs and today I want to showcase several ways to wear them to fit your life. I’ve written about lace tops previously – head over to see this one in spring, this one with a tweed blazer and this one about my Top 5 Tops I Love!

I own 5 lace tops – one in black, navy, lavender mauve, blush pink and white. They are from my go-to stores for petite-friendly tops: Bloomindale’s Aqua brand, Ann Taylor and LOFT. Two of them are lined and the other three I wear with my favorite camisole.

White on White

I think white on white is very chic looking and adding a blazer or jacket will complete this polished look. Add in a pop of color with a handbag or shoes.

Outfit Details:
Top: Bloomingdale’s Aqua XS (similar or similar)
Blazer: Banana Republic 0P (similar or similar
Pants: Paige Denim Size 24 (exact or similar for less)
Shoes: Ann Taylor Size 5.5 (exact or similar + my blog post on summer sandals)
Handbag: Tory Burch (exactmy blog post on using it for 4 ways)

White on Teal

Colored denim works well with white and ivory tops and these are my favorite pair in teal green.

Shop the Outfit:
Top: Bloomingdale’s (exact or similar)
Pants: Paige (similar here in green or here in burgundy or lower priced here)
Handbag: Michael Kors (similar + handbag organizer)

Black Work Skirt

My black lace top is my go-to for pairing with skirts for work. I love it styled with gray, black and blue. Here is one of my favorites with a comfortable flare skirt from NIC+ZOE. Besides pairing this with black bow heels, I’ve worn pops of color with my Tieks ballet flats + Sheec no-show socks.

Why these are my Favorite Work Pants 4 Years Later

Many of you have seen my go-to work pants multiple times over the past 2 years and today I want to give you an update on them.  I first wrote about my favorite work pants, the Banana Republic Sloan Pants, in my first blog post in 2016! I’ve owned this pant style for over 4 years now and I’m confident it’s still one of the best work pants on the market today.

Note: This post may contain affiliate links; full disclosures HERE. This means, purchasing an item through one of my links may earn me a small commission without affecting your own purchase. Thank you for supporting Petite Style Script & helping it continue as an educational resource.

I currently own 7 pairs of the Banana Republic Sloan Pants in sizes 00P and 0P. These includes colors: Black, Navy, Gray, Blue, Burgundy, Light Pink and Bright Pink. I have fluctuated between a 00P and 0P over the years and now prefer the 00P for the best fit – purchase here.

Why is this my favorite work pant?
  • Classic style – It’s a classic trouser/slack style that will work for years to come.
  • Petite friendly – The length of this pant is perfect for petite women like myself. I have never had to tailor the hem length which is a big bonus compared to most work pants on the market.
  • Variety of colors – You probably can already tell that this pant comes in a variety of colors to choose from plus BR offers new texture styles throughout the year including my gray trouser and blue trouser designs that are not your normal solid colors.
  • Comfortable – The fabric is stretchy and comfortable but not too stretchy that the pants feel big by the end of the day or even after a couple wears.
  • Non-Wrinkle – These pants literally do not wrinkle! I wear them all day, many times sitting throughout the day, and they do not show significant wrinkles in them. They also are easy to travel with and fold well without requiring ironing or steaming at my destination.
  • Belt Loops – I wear a belt with nearly all my pants and having appropriate belt loops is a must on my work-pants. These belt loops fit my usual 1-inch belt by Talbots (read my blog post) or larger 1.5-inch belt by Tory Burch (read my blog post).
  • Care – My pants state “Dry Clean Only” on them and I have done this before but I also substitute with Dryel and Machine Washing on delicate cycle in a laundry bag as well. I also wear the pants multiple times before cleaning them because normal day-to-day wear does not produce a lot of dirt that needs to be washed off.

If you’re not sure about these work pants, here’s what you can do to test them out or test out a similar work pant you are considering:

  • Order 3 sizes online (your usual, one lower and one higher) or go into your local store to try them on
  • Purchase them and try them on at home
  • Wear them around your house for at least 4 hours to see how comfortable they, how stretchy they are and how you feel in them
  • After ~4 hours, look in the mirror and observe if they created wrinkles, look bigger from stretchiness, etc.
  • Repeat for other sizes
  • Make decision and love them!

Block Heeled Sandals

Outfit Details: M. Gemi Attorno Sandals 35.5 (exact)
NIC+ZOE Dress Petite P (exact)
NIC+ZOE Cardigan Petite P (exact) + blog post with this outfit 

I continue to love my M. Gemi Attorno sandals! They have held up well with time- mine are now 2 years old and going strong. Yes, I do wear them outside of spring/summer months because of the warm weather here in Los Angeles! The best part, these limited-edition sandals are back this season in 4 colors and a few minor updates! The block heel is slightly different depending on the color you choice + the navy color is new and a great neutral option!

I’m wearing size 35.5 and this is my go-to size at M. Gemi. Remember, they sell out fast and are handcrafted with limited stock. Purchase them here + read more on my previous blog post.

Outfit Details: Ann Taylor Gigi or Liya (updated version or similar) – 40% off!
BR Jeans 24 (exact)
BR Top XXSP (similar)
Ann Taylor Necklace (similar)
Tory Burch Clutch (exact

I also love my Ann Taylor Gigi sandals and use them with the higher heel for wearing with work pants and jeans. These are also back this season in updated colors and of course, will sell out quickly too. I’m wearing size 5.5. Purchase them here!

Flat Sandals

Outfit Details: Target Sandals 5.5 (similar or similar
Paige Denim 23 (exact)
Bloomingdale’s Lace Top XS (similar or similar
Nordstrom Tote (exact

I love flat sandals because they remind me of my ballet flats! Sometimes I just don’t feel like wearing a heel so my flat sandals are my go-to option in spring and summer casual settings! I like to add a little interest to my flat sandals and my glitter-detailed ones from Target are my favorite. I also like adding color to shoes or accessories and my mint green ones are perfect for bringing in pastel colors.

Celebrating Healthcare Graduates + Medelita Gift Giveaway

Happy Graduation Month for all the students graduating this May! Graduations hold a special place in my heart. It is a time to celebrate a milestone in our lives – from bachelor degrees to master degrees to doctorate degrees in various professional areas.

I understand the hard work, perseverance and challenges that students face on their road to graduation and to celebrate your accomplishments, I’m partnering up with Medelita to give away an Ultimate Healthcare Graduate Gift Package!

Note: This post may contain affiliate links; full disclosures HERE. This means, purchasing an item through one of my links may earn me a small commission without affecting your own purchase. Thank you for supporting Petite Style Script & helping it continue as an educational resource. 

For those of you not familiar with my healthcare background, let me briefly recap it for you. I’m a board-certified critical care pharmacist, advanced practice pharmacist in California and assistant professor of pharmacy practice. On my road to these accomplishments, I spent 3 years to obtain my bachelor degree, 4 years to obtain my Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree and 2 years of Post-Graduate Training towards my specialty in critical care. Through this 9-year process, I celebrated multiple graduations with family and friends by my side and today, it’s time to pay-it-forward by honoring students who are pursuing their passions in healthcare.

Because I can’t just give away a gift without providing some insight into a company, let me tell you more about Medelita. Medelita was founded by a physician assistant who set out to design comfortable and stain resistant scrubs & lab coats that are durable, timeless styles and well-fitted.

  • 3 core values include Innovation, Leadership and Service!
  • Environmental Responsibility – paperless office?! Yes!
  • Extra attention to detail with embroidery services offered

For more information, visit Medelita today!

For my petite friends, I’ll be tailoring my white coat (size 0) to shorten the sleeves and hemming the scrub pants (size XS). The scrub pants do run larger than I like but the scrub tops fit true-to-size. My favorite Medelita product is definitely their white coat with its thick material, fitted design and ample pockets.

Healthcare Graduate Gift Giveaway! Winner will receive:

  • Pair of scrubs from Medelita
  • White coat from Medelita
  • Stethoscope from Medelita

To celebrate all the moms out there, I’m very excited to share an exclusive giveaway with NIC+ZOE for the ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Package! For those who don’t know, NIC+ZOE is one of my favorite brands because of their classic styles, petite-friendly fits and products that cater to a broad range of age groups (myself and my mom)! You can read more about my favorite product from them with a video on their 4-Way Cardigan Blog Post. Learn more about my mom in our blog posts together here, here or here.

To showcase NIC+ZOE style for Mother’s Day, my mom and I opted for hues of pink and neutral colors with white and gray. My mom picked out her dress first with this classic light pink color in a side twist style and higher neckline with a summer-ready cardigan. This dress was perfect for her and I would also see myself wearing it to work with its work-appropriate cut (neckline and hem length). Yes, we can actually share dresses with how petite my mom is; it’s just balancing the cut of items to make sure they are not too tight or low-cut for my mom’s 60+ year old preference. I opted for a bolder pink hue and flare design.

Outfit Details (Mom): NIC+ZOE Twist Dress Petite Small (exact) & NIC+ZOE Take Comfort Cardigan XS (exact)

Outfit Details (Me): NIC+ZOE Dress Petite P (exact) & NIC+ZOE Cardigan Petite P (exact)

  • Mirage Twist Dress – great colors with white, cobalt blue, aqua green
  • High Point Tee – love the cut of this top
  • Open Road Pant – polished look but comfortable style
  • Voyage Fringe Jacket – who doesn’t love a classic tweed style jacket in a seasonal blue hue?

Giving Love to Our Best Friends…our dogs!

Today, I’m taking a moment to talk about one of my new favorite products outside of clothing – our dog’s pet food! You may not know, but my sister’s dogs – a golden retriever and black lab – are like nephews to me. I spent a lot of time with them over the past 3 years living in the same home together. But, my sister and brother-in-law have been struggling to find a dog food that fits their needs for caring for the most important men in their lives – their dogs!

Note: This post may contain affiliate links; full disclosures HERE. This means, purchasing an item through one of my links may earn me a small commission without affecting your own purchase. Thank you for supporting Petite Style Script & helping it continue as an educational resource. 

When we all discovered PetPlate and their commitment to high-quality food options for dogs, we were very intrigued. Here is more information about their food:

  • Freshly cooked and ready-to-eat meals
  • Never any by-products, rendered meats, preservatives or artificial additives
  • Vegetables: peas & carrots
  • Carbohydrates: potato & sweet potato
  • Healthy oils: safflower & sardine fish oil
  • Fiber: pumpkin & apple
  • Protein: beef & turkey

15% off with Code “PETITE15”

My sister and brother-in-law decided to give PetPlate a try back in November 2017, right before Thanksgiving. What happened?

Our dogs LOVED it! They thought it was a special treat and after running out of the meals, we put their “regular” food back in their dishes and they looked at it, looked up at us, and with their eyes said “Where’s my real food? I don’t want this.” It was heartbreaking to see their reactions to the non-PetPlate food.

Can’t wait for us to open the lid and feed them already!!!

Why do we love it?
  • Convenient delivery – no more trips to the pet store and then back-bending heavy lifting to get large bags of dry dog food into our home!
  • Flexible and customizable – you get to decide how many meals you want for each delivery. There is not set package you have to pick from -making it more flexible to fit our dogs’ needs and meal schedules.

New Feature!
  • #AskWinston, the ultimate Dog-Foodie, is here to answer your questions on dog food!
  • Winston is PetPlate founder’s own dog (what a cutie) and pet owners can now send him questions through Instagram stories by tagging #AskWinston and @PetPlate – Winston will then get back to them as soon as he’s down chowing down on his PetPlate dish of the day!

Our dogs are our children. We must treat them well to live healthy and long lives.

My outfit: Summer Sandals, Dress is old (similar here or here

We hope you find as much joy from PetPlate as we do.

As an appreciation for our readers, we are able to offer 15% off with Code “PETITE15”

Three Go-To Looks for Running Errands

I’m often asked by readers how to look put-together and polished for casual weekend settings such as running errands. Today, I’ll highlight three go-to looks for running errands and tips for substituting pieces that fit your lifestyle. Let’s get started.

Some may call this athleisure but many of these items are not athleisure items. To look more polished, I’m still opting for denim jeans and well-fitted tops. For athleisure, head over to read what to wear while flying- aka airplane outfits!

Note: This post may contain affiliate links; full disclosures HERE. This means, purchasing an item through one of my links may earn me a small commission without affecting your own purchase. Thank you for supporting Petite Style Script & helping it continue as an educational resource.

Outfit for Running Errands #1

This first outfit features the most athleisure-type top. This twist-front top is made of a breathable fabric by Zella (exclusive brand of Nordstrom). It’s a little looser fit and very flattering on many body types. For this outfit, I opted to pair this top with white denim jeans and slip-on sneakers. I think slip-on style sneakers automatically demonstrate that this outfit is not a “workout” or “fitness” outfit because these are definitely not designed for jogging/running! Yes, they are comfortable sneakers and can be worn for walking long distances but really are stylish than fitness functional.

Style Tip: Substitute white denim jeans for your favorite athleisure leggings. Change it up a bit with a colored legging such as these burgundy ones.

Outfit Details: 
Top: Nordstrom Zella XXS (exact)
Pant: White Jeans Paige 23 (exact)
Shoes: M. Gemi Size 35 (exact or similar for less)
Necklace: Nordstrom (similar)
Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o (exact)

Outfit for Running Errands #2

This second outfit features a casual long hemline tee. This tee is fitted yet feels loose with the drapey hemline. I’m wearing one from J. Crew Factory but there are many similar tops I recommend in this style. For those who prefer a color over neutrals, I picked out a blush pink for spring! I paired this top with dark wash denim and stylish sneakers in rose gold. In comparison to slip-on sneakers, these Nike sneakers are also functional and can be worn for jogging/running purposes. The color choices were intentional because the neutral gray tones will coordinate with many outfits and the rose gold elevates the look of these sneakers from your “gym” sneakers to gym-to-play sneaker design.

Style Tip: When searching for sneakers that will function for fitness AND casual settings, opt for neutrals such as gray, lower cut ankles and smaller soles so they are not too bulky looking with casual outfits.

Outfit Details: 
Top: J. Crew Factory XXS (exact or similar)
Pant: Jeans Paige 23 (exact)
Shoes: Nike Size 6 (exact or similar for less)
Necklace: Nordstrom (similar)
Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o (exact)
Sunglasses: Tory Burch (exact– on sale)

How to Style an Olive-Green Dress from Work to Weekend + 9 Affordable Dresses

Springtime means lots of pastel colors but we all love a solid dress in a neutral color, right? Getting away from pastel colors (since you’ve seen them VERY often on my blog recently), I’m styling an olive-green dress from work to weekend! This is another an old piece that I actually share with my twin sister and when I saw it in her closet recently, I thought it would be perfect for discussing a spring style tip!

As I’ve discussed in my blog post on transitioning casual to business casual clothing options (read post here), there are a few factors that go into transitioning the same piece or substituting items to work for both environments. To simplify that information, you can either purchase a piece that functions in both settings or substitute different accessories such as shoes to align with each environment.

Today, I will be styling an olive-green dress that works well in both settings. This is a similar discussion to when I talked about styling a chambray dress from casual to work settings a couple weeks ago (read the blog post)!

Tips for Choosing a Solid-Colored Dress for Work and Weekend:
  • Neckline: Appropriate necklines will be essential for wearing a dress to work. One style I love is a button-up neckline so you can easily adjust it when you’re at work versus wearing the dress with friends. This olive-green dress features ~6 buttons to adjust.
  • Hemline: Just like necklines, the hemline is important for wearing the dress to work. I prefer a hemline that hits just above the knee or not more than 2 inches above the knee. This dress is a little shorter than I remember but does hit ~2 inches above the knee and is appropriate for work.
  • Add Interest: A solid-colored dress can be a little “plain” for some women. To add a little interest to the design, consider different textures or accents to the dress. This can include one of my favorites such as scallop detailing (read my blog post about this), belted waists or cinched waistline and pleated details. This particular dress includes a subtle pleated detail on the chest and a cinched waistline to accent different body types.
Work Outfit: Olive-Green Dress

I decided to stay neutral with this dress to ensure I wouldn’t complete with it’s gorgeous olive-green color. I opted for taupe colors and added my go-to versatile cardigan from NIC+ZOE. Head over to read all about this 4-way cardy and how to style it (with a video). I opted to wrap it and tuck in the buttons for this outfit. I think the v-neck design it creates at the neckline is very flattering and work-appropriate. Plus, this cardigan also comes in a lighter linen fabric for those in humid weather looking for a layer for spring and summer! I finished off the look with taupe bow heels, simple gold necklace and navy wallet clutch. I’ll toss this wallet in my work handbag as I head out the door for work!

Weekend Outfit: Olive-Green Dress

I wanted to make the transition to weekend wear as easy as possible with this dress. I think it’s a great piece to wear after work to meet up with friends or enjoy happy hour so here are my simple changes. I took off the 4-way cardigan, changed from my bow heels to flat sandals, and added in my trusty sunglasses that are classic & polarized to protect or eyes (read more about them in this blog post)! I kept my wallet clutch for an easy clutch for going out.
