Shorty

I am 5’4.25″ tall.

There is emphasis placed on that one quarter. Without that extra quarter inch I might be considered short, right?

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

I’ve heard it said that life’s too short not to wear fabulous shoes, and I’ve gotta say – I’m on board with that statement.

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

But… My life is currently living out of boxes. Trying to stay one step… [Continue Reading]

    My Life is a Zoo
  • To all those that assumed this was a continuation of the last couple of weeks where I talked about marriage and how to retain your passion for one another… my apologies. Sometimes it’s just about fashion. I’m a Minnesota girl, and I love fashion and pretty things. But I also live in a very snowy… [Continue Reading]

  • I have never been a Black Friday shopper. Honestly, I spent too many years working the retail end of this day to get excited about actually shopping it.
