The Perfect Distressed Jeans for Petite Women

Express Ripped JeansHappy Wednesday, marblelous babes! 💕 How has your week been treating you? I gotta admit, my week has been really rough! Life has been throwing me so many curveballs this week and just when I thought that was the end of it, my boyfriend and I got rear-ended in a car accident while we were just sitting and chilling at a traffic light and waiting for it to turn green.

My boyfriend and I made it out fine, but I can’t say the same for our car. It is a total wreck and it’s already a pain trying to deal with the guy’s insurance company!

Times like these, it is SO easy to mull over all those negative thoughts and things that won’t live past today; however, as cheesy as this may sound, I know that these things happen for a reason. I may not know why now, but I choose to be grateful that we are so blessed to be alive and well. 💕

If you’re petite like me, then I know you must share the same struggle as I do when it comes to finding the perfect pair of jeans for petite women that fit exactly how you want it to! It’s so frustrating when regular jeans are so long that the rips at the knees are actually rips at the calves! Or the fact that you have to roll up your jeans SO much that it just looks absolutely ridiculous on!

I was DYING for a pair of distressed jeans that fit perfectly on my petite frame, and I was SO excited when I found THE ONE! Express has seriously the best jeans for petite women in a variety of styles and fit. I absolutely love love love that they have three different length available – Regular, Short, and Long!

Teal Tux Blazer

I own two pairs of their jeans for petite women and they fit like a glove! Seriously, they even make my butt look good, ha! 🙈 I also love that I don’t have to roll up my jeans or get it tailored! Do you know what this means? I can actually enjoy those frayed and raw hems that I’ve been seeing all over!! 🙌🏻

Express distressed jeans

Olive Tassel Booties

I paired my distressed jeans for petite women with this deep v-neck choker top that is under $10 and one of my favorite blazers of all time! Unfortunately, my blazer is old and sold out; but I linked several unique blazers that I’ve been crushing on at the bottom of this post!

How perfect are these rips?? 😍 My olive green tassel booties are currently on sale for under $30 and also comes in black and taupe!

    I am 5’3 and have so much trouble finding jeans. I always have to buy ones that give the inseam. These are the perfect amount of distressing. Thanks for sharing!!!

    • January 12, 2017 / 7:47 pm

      I feel your pain, Gretchen!! I’m only 5’0 so I totally get it! These jeans are not only great for petites but seriously feels like second skin!!

    such a cute outfit!

    I am short and share your struggle. I haven’t tried Express jeans, so this gives me reason to check them out. I have found that Diplomacy jeans in short are perfect for me.

    • January 12, 2017 / 7:49 pm

      Oh, I’ve never tried Diplomacy before! I have to check them out! I love how affordable Express is, especially when they have the half off sale! ha!

    So cute. I like the boots.

    I’m not a petite, but like most women I’m always on the hunt for a great pair of jeans! LOFT is typically my go-to, but I’ll be sure to check out Express next time! 🙂 Your rings are beautiful, too! (I’m a jeweler so that’s what I always notice first!)

    • January 12, 2017 / 7:50 pm

      Oh, I’ve heard great things about LOFT!! Express typically has great fitting jeans for all types of height and body! They seriously fit like a glove! And thank you!! What an honor coming from a jeweler!! I LOVE rings so much!

    Those are cute jeans! How tall are you? I’m 5’2″ and have the worst time finding a good pair

    • January 12, 2017 / 7:52 pm

      I’m only 5’0″ so I feel ya, girl!!! The length of Express’ jeans in short fits just right on me so you definitely should check them out!!

    What a crappy start to the week! I love this blazer though, and how you’ve styled it with the distressed denim.

    I have never worn jeans from Express! I am very petite – only 4’11”. I swear by American Eagle’s jeans and jeggings that come in their “short” option!

    • January 12, 2017 / 7:54 pm

      Oh no!! I’m only slightly taller than you at 5’0″!! I’ve never tried American Eagle’s jeans! I definitely have to check theirs out! Thanks babe!!
