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?

Though I’ve found that, when wearing 6 inch heels, no one will mistake you for someone of a smaller stature. I lace up these babies, and I become a giant.

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!

  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!).

  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

    WIW to the Oscars
  • Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After… [Continue Reading]

    Vacation Rewind
  • I’ve shard in the past my struggles with sleeping. (check out this post – our readers shared TONS of great ideas for getting better sleep at night!) There is nothing like the feeling of being well rested. And if there is any time I’m going to catch up on my zzz’s, it’s while I’m on… [Continue Reading]
