Hi, I’m Sam! Welcome to La Petite Pear! I’m so happy to have you in my little corner of the Internet! A little bit about me: I live in New York City with my husband and our furbaby Bones. I work in digital marketing and love building community online. I’m originally from Massachusetts and I’m still a big Boston sports fan! I love to travel and explore new places. Ice cream is my favorite food and I eat it year-round.
I’ve always loved to shop and put outfits together. I grew to my current height (5’4″) around 5th grade, and for a little while I was actually tall! But, since then, I’ve embraced being on the shorter side and don’t let my (lack of) height stand in my way. Although I’m petite in height, I’ve also got curves. It can be challenging to be a woman in the world who looks different than the women in all of the ads and magazines. I’d like to say that I always love my shape, but I’m working on it, and I know I’m not the only one. The average size for women in the US is a 16 and I definitely believe that the fashion world needs more curves. My hope is to show you how to shop and dress, no matter your shape or size, and love the skin you’re in!
My approach to style is fun, but realistic. I wear things that work for my life. My budget is far from unlimited, and the majority of the items in my closet are not from high-end designer brands, although I do have some indulgences. Most days, I’m wearing a combination of high and low items.
On La Petite Pear, I share my personal style, plus favorite beauty buys, entertaining, home decor, travel diaries and more.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, partnership opportunities, or just to say hi!
