Petite Chic Mom: Using Style To Bring About Wellness

Janet, the editor of fashion and beauty blog Petite Chic Mom, seems like superwoman at first glance. By day, she's an oncologist MD, and she also works as a beauty executive for Ever Beauty and the upcoming Flor Blanca Spa Products. She's also a mom of twins, and on top of that, she blogs about her favorite beauty products and outfits. Janet is 4'11", and she likes to share outfits that are practical and stylish for petite women. With her blog, Janet empowers you to be superwoman too, by taking you inside her life and the things she loves.

Janet is based in sunny South Florida, and many of her outfits and beauty products are chosen with this weather in mind. One of the things that comes across so strongly in both her blog and her Instagram is balance - she shows that you can have both a satisfying family and work life, all while looking great. By taking a wellness forward approach, she keeps stress to a minimum and focuses on really enjoying the process of building a happy life. Here are some of our favorite outfits of Janet's.

A common fashion myth is that short women can't pull off maxi skirts, and that couldn't be further from the truth. Here, Janet shows just how wrong that is, with a beautiful light blue maxi skirt with lively ruffle detailing. The ruffles add lots of movement to the skirt and make it a bold, eye-catching piece for summer. Janet's fitted tank top shows just a little bit of midriff, which actually emphasizes her waist and makes her legs look longer. She finishes it off with practical sandals and a chic straw tote bag, which makes the look feel nice and beachy.

Even on a relaxed day, you can stay comfy and still look totally pulled together. Janet wore this look for a day of pampering at the spa. Her printed leggings are both trendy and comfortable, and a soft, long cardigan adds coziness. Janet knows how to find the hottest sunglasses brands, and these aviator glasses add a cool touch to the look and protect her face from the sun as well.

This elegant tropical themed look is perfect for vacation, but it would also work great for a brunch or date night at home. Janet lets the tropical skirt be the star of the show, with it's bold leaf print and flattering high-low cut. Her white shell top emphasizes her waist and looks great with her summer tan. These green wedge sandals are the perfect touch, but other styles from some of the top sandals brands could work too. 

Be sure to follow along on Janet's blog and Instagram. Not only will you find chic and flattering outfits for petite women, but you'll also find recommendations and tips for taking care of your skin, favorite lifestyle products and tips, and even adorable family snapshots.
