Dandy Long Legs





What:
Blouse- Winners $9
Shorts- Winners
Belt- Ardene
Wedges- The Bay (Nine West $25)

Hmmm...I'm loving how long my legs are looking in this shorts/heels combo...it's not a combo that I wear often (I only tried it once before here...but the shorts were longer and the heels were quite a bit bulkier)...but I'm quite liking it.  I think there's a fine line between looking decent and looking like you belong on a street corner when wearing heels with shorts...the line is so fine it's hard to decribe the difference between the right way and the wrong way....lets just hope I did it right.  I know that the lady at the grocery store got it wrong....all wrong...the top part of her outfit was fine (pink sleeveless top, denim shorts)...but her footwear was ALL wrong...she was wearing Rock'n'Roll black patent platform boots...and get this...they had a star cut out in the middle of the super thick (tractor tire looking) wedge heel....and a Silver Star on the side of both calves.   Oh it was horrible...and the funny thing about it was the lady was not anywhere near gothic or punk looking..just your everyday girl next door...with horrible taste in footwear!  I have to laugh a little though because I know that the 14 year old me would have loved those boots SOOO much....thank goodness I've moved on!  
I think I should just mention that this was just my opinion (which I'm entitled to share since it's my blog)...but I do feel a little guilty for making fun of someones fashion choices...and I'm sure not everyone agrees with my taste either....so I just wanted to make it clear that I don't think I'm all high a mighty in the "Fashion World"...especially after posting these "posey" looking pictures...haha..it kinda makes me feel like a fashion snob.  I swear I'm not!!!...I just figured some of you would appreciate envisioning those boots in your head! haha

Great look. I love heels with shorts or mini's but yes, fine line. And hard to pull off with little ones.
Those boots and the outfit would have been fun to see.
