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. Some might say, “Wow! 6 inch heels.”, but really you get use them. Just like anything it just takes some breaking in to do. If you want to create the illusion of height you have to put in the work to do it. I also love that I was able to pair these fun leggings with them (also, black makes you look taller, right??). Printed leggings are huge upcoming style, so feel free to experiment with them. Use them under a dress you would normally wear with bare legs, I can promise it will bring a whole new level of fun to your outfit.


All in all, whether you may be “short” or “tall”, don’t be afraid to try that heel in your outfit. Or better yet, try that heel and those fun tights you’ve you wanted to try. Be brave. Something wonderful could come out of it.

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!

  1. Awesome outfit. LOVE the necklace. Everything looks amazing on you including those killer shoes. Although my old feet couldn’t handle the 6 inches….it would kill me. 😉

  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. LOVE those heels and tights! You look so dang cute! I’m 5’4″ and I just love the feeling heels give, like Stephanie said, it is an entirely different world from up there 🙂

  4. The nice things about being 5’4″.25 is we get to wear the heels!! Those supermodel heights can’t get away with it as easily! Very fab shoes! Your outfit is adorable!!

  5. I’m 5’5 and wear at least 3 inch heels most days to work. People have to do a double take on the days I wear flats. They’re like… Wow. You’re short. Ha!
