“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” ~Nelson Mandela


Welcome To My Petite World

As you can tell from the title, I’m Latoya!

Welcome! I’m so glad you decided to join me on this journey of blogging, and hope you stick around for all that’s too come. Right about now you’re probably expecting to read about how I use to like to dress up, or how fashion has been a part of my life and so on. Well, that’s not the case with me! Growing up in the Mississippi Delta, I didn’t have an opportunity to really experience such. Fashion didn’t become a part of my life until I started my first professional job over 10 years ago (wow). Which, I’m still finding my way today!

I’m about the bun life! Most days you may find me in really comfy clothes when I’m not working full-time (Asst Banking Center Manager). Sports, A&E and Disney are the most watched channels in our home, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m married to the most handsome and caring man ever. He knows me better than I know myself and is always pushing me to go further.  I’m also the mom of a very smart, funny, and beautiful girl. She knows how to keep me on my toes, and not afraid to express herself when it comes to my style. She’s actually my inspiration.  My family and Christ are the two most important things in my life, and I’m finally embracing all that’s been given to me.

This blog was started with encouragement from friends who believed in me and saw something that I didn’t see in myself.  Also, I wanted a place for those who feel like they are late to this fashion world to have a safe place to go and be inspired. So, if you’re looking for a place to be yourself and be inspired then this is the place for you. We all need a little encouragement sometimes! You’re able to get weekly doses of inspiration every Wednesday. Trust me when I say, I’m nervous because never did I think I had or have what it takes to be a writer. Hope that you are inspired by petite fashion styles and all that goes on here in Petite Latoya’s world. You can connect with me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram all platforms @iampetitelatoya.

Thank you again for the love! It is greatly appreciated 💋


xoxo Petite Latoya 💜
