a must-have for spring/summer

  
top: iris basic (ross)
sweater: down east basics outlet (favorite store in st. george!)
shorts: klique b (bohme)
shoes: bcbgeneration (marshalls)
sunglasses: steve madden (dillards)
watch: michael kors (recent b-day gift from my boyfriend)

some days, i wish i was a little taller.
barely reaching 5'2" is an outward quality that i seem to have a love/hate relationship with.
i love being little, and i love being able to wear heels and still be smaller than my boyfriend.
but sometimes, i just wish these legs were a little longer. 
especially when shorts weather comes along.
cause let's face it, it's hard to pull off heels with a pair of shorts.
there's a dangerous line there that we don't want to cross.
i wanted to find a way to wear shorts and heels at the same time without crossing into risque territory.
(a more harmless option would probably be to buy a pair of longer shorts, but hey, i'm a short-shorts type of girl.)
so as soon as the warm weather started appearing, i was on a mission to find a pair of classy wedges that would keep me on the safe side of the line. 
wedges are perfect, because for one- they are much more comfortable than a pair of stilettos, and two- they have a much more subtle look.
i also had my eye out for a pair in nude; cause it really is nice to have a pair of shoes that matches with nearly every outfit in your closet.
i searched high and low in nearly every shoe section of every store.
it wasn't until i stopped into marshalls that i found this beautiful little pair.
and of course, on a great sale!
 they are the perfect girly addition to a warm weather outfit.

  13. Looking fab as always sweets! :) Oh and thank you so much for following me :) Hopefully you´ll enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy yours:)

    Ha ha I have the same love/hate relationship with my height, I´m 1.73, and ...no actually it´s just a hate relationship:p I mean I can´t wear superhigh heels, or just heels in general, which I love! I look like an amazon woman.. And I get taller than my boyfriend when we´re going out and such:(

    I guess some people compliment my height, but.. seriously I have platform heels in my closet and I just can´t wear them. hehe. I´m sure it´s the better way around!:P
    But ofc, I see your point, and everybody wants what they cant have, right? :p

    But hey, you got the figure too so you can pull off being a little shorter for sure ;)
