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.

Button Down and Shorts

Adorable. I love this picture from Pinterest. I love the half-tuck of the button down into her adorable pink shorts.

I, however, do not have the luxury of such a long torso. In fact, I have very little torso. In fact in fact, the very little torso I have is mostly taken up with breasts.

Also, flats are tricky to pull off with this kind of outfit when you’re under 5′.

I left my shirt untucked and added lowish wedge heels. I also swapped the pretty white top for a dark button down so as not to look top-heavy. I feel like the trick here is to look casual and not too vavavoomy, so, despite my initial instincts, I did not add a belt (!). Oh, and I added a necklace. Because of fun.

So here’s my take, using, obvs, cheapie clothes I already had:
