New Chicks on the Blog

Hey there! Welcome to Pleasantly Petite! We could not be more excited to share our love of fashion & style with you and give great advice & tips along the way! To start off we’re Katie & Brittani, your bloggers. If you want to learn more about us individually check out our meet us tab.



People have often told us we are the epitome of the saying “a brunette and a blonde with an inseparable bond” and often times get asked if we are twins or sisters. We wish! Growing up in the same northwest suburb of Chicago & attending the University of Arizona together (roomies for 2 years!), we have become closer than your average friend.



We wanted to create Pleasantly Petite to share our similarities in petite fashion (hello fellow short people!), as well as show off our unique differences in style. Being based in Chicago, we also hope to impress our favorite city! 



As you can see, although our outfit choices look very similar, they are unique to our tastes. We both love skater skirts, however, Katie’s has a retro & fun quality to it with the attached suspenders. Brittani’s is edgier with its use of leather material.



For our tops, Katie chose a cropped top with a cowl turtleneck to keep a retro look without crossing the line into total 1990's mode. Brittani chose a sheer blouse with structure to counter her for edgy skirt while still utilizing leather in the trim detailing to tie it all together. 



Saving the best for last to pull together our outfits, SHOES! To keep a simple look, Katie went with a pair of black-heeled booties. These are a staple in every girls closet for fall and winter, because they go with just about anything. Brittani wanted to spice up her all black ensemble with a wild animal print pump. This helps connect her edgy look from blouse to toe.




Thanks so much for stopping by! We can’t wait to share more posts with you. If you want to keep up to date on everything Pleasantly Petite, follow us on twitter, instagram, facebook, pinterest, and bloglovin!
