Seeing You It Kills Me Now.







Peter Pan Shirt (worn as a dress), Black Blazer, Black Oxfords: Forever21.
Patterned Tights: JcPenny's.

Hello there everyone!
If there were ever a time in my life I was thankful for my short, stubby legs it would have had to been today. It's no secret that my legs are one of my biggest insecurities. I have been blessed with rather short and very muscular legs instead of ones that are long and lean. However, how many tall girls can turn a top into a dress?! This girl can though! Thanks to my short legs I was able to actually wear one of my favorite tops as a dress and, if I do say so myself, not too risquely.

I've also been quite happy with Ohio's weather for once with its perfect mixture of coolness, but without being too cold. Fall is beginning to start which is making me incredibly happy! I've longed for breaking out my blazers and, of course, my tights. Do you all remember these tights from last winter? I don't know how you couldn't because I wore them practically every day, ha!

Hope you all had a lovely labor day today! It's back to school and work for me tomorrow, but so far I'm not complaining ❤
With much love, Lauren.

P.S. I've saved enough money for my Canon T3 and should be getting it in the next few weeks! So, so excited...

TOTALLY feel the short legs thing! I turn shirts into dresses all the time since I'm only five feet tall. Probably one of the only good things about being tiny. Anyway, I absolutely adore the way you pulled this off pretty lady!

I love the way you wore your shirt as a dress! I never would have guessed it was a shirt if you hadn't said so. Your blazer is adorable as well. Our weather is finally getting cooler too--I'm already missing summer, but it's nice to wear different clothes! :)

That was supposed to be a dress? On who? haha. You look so cute in this outfit and I would definitely be wearing something very similar if it was cold enough here. I love blazers and dresses. Those tights are really neat too.

I've always been a bit frustrated with my legs! It's amazing how dresses can appear on girls who are bigger, yet have skinnier legs. I've always said "I'd love my body if I liked my legs" But girl, you have no worries! You look delicate and beautiful in every post. I envy you!!

hope to hear from you*!

Those tights are amazing! I wish I could wear tops as dresses, I can't even wear some of my dresses without tights!

haha. true. I could NEVER make a top into a dress. hehe.
It looks great on you!! I didn't know shirts could be made so large but I suppose it's a tunic shirt? Anyway it's adorable!!

That definately looks like a dress! I wouldn't have imagined it to be anything otherwise. I think your hair looks great like this by the way!

Hooray for girls with short legs :) (me, too) We also have the advantage when it comes to shopping online since the dresses look way too short on the 5'11'' models and the hem falls to the comfortable length above our knee. This is an awfully cute outfit!

Love all the different patterns you've got going on here. ;)

You arent the only one with short legs!:) I'm 5' 4'' but have shorter legs than my 5' Asian friend. But I will definitely take your advice and start looking into doing that!:)
