|Sweater: Forever 21 (Available here)|
Over the years, I have been called small fry, shorty, and a number of other names, and I have been the unwilling victim of a lot of short jokes.
|Jeans: The Limited Petites|
My height has at times felt like a liability in regards to my level of attractiveness to the opposite sex. After dating for a couple months, my first boyfriend once told me, "I didn't think a short girl could be so sexy." Ummm...thanks?
|T-shirt: LOFT (Available here)|
Through the years, for better or worse, my height has just become part of who I am. I am short like my mother, who is short like her grandmother. My short stature gives me a lower center of gravity. If I should fall down, I have less of a fall. Yep, there are advantages to being short too!
|Necklace: Ann Taylor|
In the past, I never would have worn cropped jeans with a long sweater as I was taught this was unflattering for someone of my height - that it made me look shorter. This ideas is based on the idea that being short is a bad thing when in fact being short is great! Today, I wear what I want!
