Orange Sweater and Bodycon Skirt
Orange is my go-to color. I just love it. And I love sweaters. And I love skirts. And I love, from Pinterest, this girl and her outfit and her hair.

Cute from Pinterest. Want her hair but too scared.

For the petite hourglass, however, this is not quite doable. The neck is too high. The sweater is too boxy. The skirt is too striped (sorry…wish tweren’t true).

I do, by the by, enjoy her lack of accessories.
So here’s my take. I added a belt for definition. I rolled up the sleeves of my lower-cut sweater (for faked arm length). I added wedge heels. And I exchanged the adorable stripey skirt for my more structure faux leather one.

Tee Shirt Scarf

Soooo scarves are usually a problem for me.

First of all, they’re usually very long and very thick. I am very short and…already kind of thick. At least where the scarf falls.

Often, when I wear a scarf, it looks like I’m wearing a knitted shelf.

But fear not, petite hourglasses! I found this great DIY on Pinterest:

And I made it!

I don’t know. I’m kind of pleased! It took me about a half an hour, cost me only an old shirt I was going to give away anyway, and is actually a reasonable size and shape. Dance, little scarf, DANCE!

Olive Midi Skirt

Look at this cutiepie from Pinterest with her little hat and olive midi skirt.

Cute outfit from Pinterest

Midi skirts can be tricky for petites, especially petite hourglasses. But I’ve found pairing it with heels and a fitted top, and making sure the skirt doesn’t have toooo much volume, can make it alllllll all right.

I swapped out the relaxed tank for a fitted long-sleeved tee shirt (scrunch that crap!) and did closed-toe wedges to streamline. And I exchanged the hat for a necklace just because I don’t heart myself in hats.

My version:

Orange Blazer and White Tee

Look what I found on Pinterest! I have an orange blazer. I love an orange blazer. And I dooooo love me a white tee.

Awesome outfit from Pinterest

But open and with shorts is tricky on a busty and butty frame. Especially when they’re all squished in under 5′.

I added a belt and switched the shorts out for a faux leather skirt. Here’s my petite hourglass version:

Tribal Skirt and Relaxed Top

This girl is so cute. She’s got this awesome relaxed batwing top. And I’m obsessed with bodycon tribal. And I love her lipstick and her sweet ombre hair.

My version, however, requires sleeves that are not superfar from the body. So that I don’t appear to be the same width at my breasts all the way down to my hips. Likewise, I require a nipping in, you see, of my shirt. So that my waist exists. Fit fit fit. Let’s all take a moment to reflect upon Our Patron Saint Salma Hayek.
