Of Small Statute

I made an interesting discovery the other day, whilst doing my monthly wardrobe organising blitz I noticed that of my everyday shoes (not shoes that I wear for work) I only possess one pair of pumps!! 

Now people who know me know I am a measly 5 foot 2 inches (just) so I tend to favor anything with a bit of a heel but I was pretty disappointed in myself as one pair is pretty pathetic! 

Since I spotted this all I am seeing are flat shoes but a massive round of applause has to go to the new Alicia Ava range in Clarks - check these out:

How amazing are they!!! I mean the trim - too cute!

I also have a tiny secret to spill - since booking a week away in the sun in July I have been shopping for it - so far I have bought 2 bikinis, 1 Kimono and 1 beach dress EEK! 

I always leave things to the last minute and end up with awful holiday gear so I made a pact with myself that I would start early - January is early enough right :-) On that note I have spotted some sandals that I think would be perfect to add to my holiday wardrobe (I bet I'm not the only one!!)

* Dune Kola * Zara * New Look *

Shoes are definitely on my mind this month,

Pastel me pretty

So February is nearly over and there is no sign of spring - I think that it has rained for the entire month. It has been pretty depressing so what better way to cheer yourself up then a bit of online inspiration!

I am loving pastels at the moment and want to spread the love - enjoy :-) 

How I've been rocking the pastel trend

Vertically challenged

I'm sure that I am not the only petite creature out there who sometimes curses their height (or lack of) when it comes to trends just not suiting. Usually I would know what works and what doesn't or I'd make it work - well this time I am well and truly stumped :-(

As soon as I saw the Whistles Lara skirt I fell in love - I mean how fab is it!

Off I went home delighted with myself...until I started styling it que *MAJOR PROBLEMS* 

Everything I put with it - white shirt, cream cami, white fluffy jumper, navy top - looked horrendous! I mean nothing, nada, niente went with it. I have a shortish torso with longer legs (long for a short person now) and the skirt sits on my waist where I feel the problem lies. It has now been sitting in my wardrobe for 3 months still unworn, there must be some law against that! 

I've looked online to gather inspiration but nothing really caught my eye plus most of the models were like 6ft (I'm 5ft 2 - just!!)

So I'm giving it more more chance with the pieces below if it I can't find anything I may have to part with it WAAHH!!!!!!

I will also take all and any recommendations on styling it - especially from fun size people like myself :-)
