I actually laughed out loud when I looked at these pictures. I can hardly believe it, but I kind of look... well... short!

You must understand - that is kind of bizarre for me. I am 5 feet 9 inches tall, and while that's not super tall, I am taller than almost all of my friends, most everyone in my family, and spend a lot of time getting told by my shorter friends that I'm practically an Amazon everytime I wear heels - ha!

I think it's the wide-leg of these pants, paired with the length of the tunic top - and the fact that I wore these pants with flats, where I would usually wear at least a small heel - and yet - here we are. The best part? I still really like this outfit - despite looking like a shorty for once!

Now - please please PLEASE don't take this as an insult if you're on the shorter end of the spectrum. I don't think there's anything wrong with being short, or tall, or skinny or thick, or curvy or whatever - I just find it kind of amusing to have this wardrobe optical illusion.

I originally  only had 1 necklace on with this top, but it seemed too dainty, so I tried a different one and didn't quite like it either - so I put the first one back on and voila! The perfect amount of sparkle.
Some little red rose earrings, a bit of lipstick and the outfit was complete!

And the weather even cooperated and was warm enough for me to wear my new coat from Christmas!

  1. Cute look! Wait till you hit 50 and start shrinking...I've already shrunk an inch and I was only 5'3" to begin with!

    1. Darlene - I've heard of this shrinking! Yikes! I'll have to start hanging upside down from my feet so I don't lose too much height, lol. Or just wear heels more often.
      Yeah... heels it is I think.
