  I’m 5’2”—These Are the Best Summer Dresses I’ve Found For Petite Women One 5’2” editor shares her finds for the best petite summer dresses—no tailor required.I used to think I couldn’t wear long maxi dresses, but they have now become my everyday uniform. If shopping online, the trick is to always check the garment’s “length” measurements to ensure it will fit your frame before checking out. (I look for dresses with a length of 51 inches and under, but the sweet spot is 40-45 inches.) I promise it will save you a headache from having to return it afterward. If you’re shopping at a retailer with an actual petite section, rejoice! They are far and few between, but labels like Reformation are making it easier to shop for petite sizes.

"The Texas Governor does not have the authority to usurp the Board of Trustees' exclusive power and duty to govern and oversee the management of the public schools of the district," the school district said in a press release. "Nothing in the Governor's Executive Order 38 states he has suspended Chapter 11 of the Texas Education Code, and therefore the Board has elected to amend its dress code consistent with its statutory authority."

Paris ISD is the latest school system to defy the governor's orders after school districts in Houston, Dallas, and Austin said they would require masks in the upcoming school year.

Abbott has fought against mask and coronavirus vaccine mandates in recent months.

He issued an executive order in May to prevent businesses and public schools from upholding mask or vaccine mandates. Several counties attempted to defy the governor's orders via court rulings, however, the Texas Supreme Court temporarily ruled in the governor's favor and overruled the lower courts to prevent mask requirements in public schools.

The governor announced on Tuesday that tested positive for COVID-19. He said he was asymptomatic and is currently receiving monoclonal-antibody treatment.

COVID-19 cases are skyrocketing in the state of Texas as an average of 15,577 people new cases are arising each day, according to a 7-day average from the New York Times' COVID-19 tracker.
