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!

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:
