fashion tips: for all you shorties out there! (you know who you are)

'so...i'm 5'3...and according to my sweet boyfriend..."have the shortest arms i've ever seen". AND of course...short legs and a short torso. and as much as i love living vicariously through Blake Lively's wardrobe, I know I couldn't pull it off. I can, however pull off a couple other styles that flatter my figure. so if you're shorter than 5'6" and have a short torso OR legs... here are a few tips that I like to live dress by:

{1} Layer, Layer, Layer!













The sweater alone would actually shorten her torso and make her appear wider.
The button up underneath breaks up the blocky look, giving the illusion that her torso is longer.

{2} Medium length A-line skirts




Try to avoid short and tight or maxi lenth skirts. Medium a-line skirts give just enough leg to show the world that yes, indeed you do have legs, while also avoiding the blocked look that mini skirts give. When picking out a skirt, try to buy one with vertical pleating like the dress above in order to create the illusion that you're taller than a legal midget.


{3} Avoid color blocking

okay. yes. this is adorable, BUT i can't pull it off. the blocked look separates my body into three sections:
1. Shoulder to belly button
2. Belly button...oh look...her legs...."that was fast!"
3. Legs...feet
Especially since I'm already short enough...I don't need to look shorter. Cropped tops are cute and all but they aren't for short people.





{4} cuff your skinnies




if you're like me...you get the BEST pair of skinny jeans...but they get all baggy at your ankles...great way to fix it....cuff them. this gives a little peekaboo of your ankles which also gives the illusion that you're taller.

{5} 70's trouser





Just look at how tall she looks! Seriously when I put mine on...I look 3 inches taller. Do it. It works.


night, everyone! :)

It's Monday---> but...it's o.K!

Hey guys! I don't know how many people actually read this...but... I thought I would throw some positive vibes toward ya'll. Mondays are always crazy and I know I find myself getting super stressed for the week. So don't get too down and always remember to be thankful for something. 

I am thankful for...


1) this drink...mmm yummy. i love sparkling beverages
2) messages like this from my honey

3) long and comfy sweaters

4) apple orchards ( that I am so excited to go to!)

5) I am extra thankful for the phrase "this too shall pass"...because it reminds me of my grandma and because it always makes me realize that the bad situations i'm in are only temporary.


What are all ya'll thankful for? :)

Friday letters


Dear Friday, I absolutely without a doubt adore you. You're even better than Thursday and I don't even have classes today! Dear work, thank you so so very much for letting me wear my spartans baseball tee and cuffed jeans on football fridays. (p.s . have i yet mentioned how totally awesome it is that it's football season?) At least i'm styling behind the desk now.



Dear bladder, stop it. I've literally had to pee every 15 minutes today. What's with that? I thought birth control was supposed to FIX my girly issues not make them worse. bleh. Dear Sephora, OMG yay. I seriously have been exploring the world of foundation trying to find my favorite type...and since it's getting all gross outside now..and my skin is getting pale...i'm going to need some more. Thank heavens for sephorabeautyinsider. Have you joined yet? If not, please do. It's the best thing. Well almost the best...sometimes I think ice cream is a little better. :) Dear boyfriend, have I mentioned lately how much I love you? Even though you pick on me about my blog? andddd that when you comment on my photos my heart still skips a beat?  We are defs going to have to have some serious you and me time this week. I mish you. Luh you, babes.

MY VERY FIRST BLOG POST----OMG! (drum roll please!)

Oh lordy. This is my first blog post on  my brand NEW blog!  I can't wait to jump head first into this.

Today strikes the 10th day since my 20th birthday. Craziness I know. I can't believe I'm no longer a teenager.  I feel so OLD...only one more year until I turn the big 2 1!! I can't wait. It's going to be a great day. Alright alright...so the reason this is so important is because it means it's only 2 more days until the first legit day of fall. I'm ecstatic. Fall is the best time of year. My favorite smells come out to play and leaves start to change...not to mention...TAILGATING! what what. So to honor this grand occasion...i'm wearing a scarf and blue jean button up...and the absolute best part...my steve madden boots that I got last semester. I have yet to be able to wear them so I'm quite joyous that I get to take these out today. :)
