jacket – Nordstrom, tights – DKNY, booties – The Vintage Gypsy, dress – H&M, necklace and headband – JCrew

Don’t forget to visit the Pleated Poppy today to check out what everyone’s been wearing!

  2. Ha! Tall hair helps too! I’m the same height as you , but I don’t usually feel small. Perhaps your friends are tall! Loving your jacket by the way. xx

  3. You’ve got .25″ on me, so I consider you tall, even without the 6″ heels. Although, those are pretty amazing. In fact, this whole outfit is fabulous!

  4. Very cute! Love this look.

  5. Well you beat me by a whopping 4.25″!!! I love wearing giant heels…it’s a totally different world view from up there! Love the outfit…that dress!

  7. This outfit and picture and your entire look have such a Carrie Bradshaw look! Fabulous!

  8. I agree with the above comment! Loving the “blogger bun” on you. :)
    Great booties. I would be 6″1 with those on. Ugh.
