Shorty

I am 5’4.25″ tall.

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!
