A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

snakeskin may be a neutral, but my loathing of snakes isn't

I'm not a short person. I'm 5'8". That's pretty average, right? Maybe on the taller side of average?
I didn't realize how short I could appear, though, until I sat down to post these pics. Holy shortlegs, Batman.
houndstooth shoes: Kohl's (I think)
jeans: Big Star
snakeskin belt: J. Crew
paisley-ish shirt: don't remember
olive green jacket: Kohl's
I've had this jacket for a while now. I love its color and cropped length and the front pleating details. I don't love the short short sleeves (especially on my loooong monkey arms) and how it's not quite a military jacket but not quite a school-boy (-girl?) (-lady? yes, that must be right. school-lady. yep.) blazer, either.
All that aside, let's hear it for a (faux, of course) skinny snakeskin belt and some leather-and-houndstooth loafers.
The perfect accessories for any stumpy-legged non-military school-lady.
Happy Wednesday.

LOVE the pattern mixing! You're tall @ 5'8" BUT maybe your torso is longer than your legs. Jacket is FAB!! Just add a long sleeve shirt and you'll be GOLDEN!

@Maya - I can't tell if my torso is long or if these jeans are too low-rise. :) Probably a bit of both.

I love everything about this and would so wear it! Put together without being too put together. And I wish I was 5'8! Thanks for sharing at All Things Pretty!
