"Smelly Socks"

It's that time of year again! Can I tell you though, I am mostly excited that I DO NOT have to wear a school uniform this year. Ugh, uniform socks are THE worse - or is it the shoes? I swear it's like having a skunk living in your shoes (insert green face emoji). I literally owned like 100 (ok maybe 50) uniform socks, yet my feet always smelled sooooooooooo bad.... haha. Only happened with uniform shoes/socks... so weird. Ok, let's move on. Uniform free this year!!! Woot!

Back story - I recently had to get a physical for school sports. You guys, I am 4ft 9 ... I'm like a life size Polly Pocket doll (LOL google it)

I really don't want to focus on my height, but I know first hand how tough it is to be 15 and short when it comes to wardrobe. Here are a few tips:

*First tip: Don't focus on height/size. Love all of you...

*Second tip: If you are being teased for your height, short or tall, please try not to entertain someone else's problem with themselves. I know it hurts, trust me - I've been called many names because of my height, I know how it feels.

*Third tip: Have fun shopping! Trust me, you can find some pretty cool clothes in kids sizes, it's all on how you put it together.

Teen look, kids size

I'll be 16 in 4 months, it's tough shopping at trendy stores for my age.

Love this look? Here's what I did:

Top: Zara Kids

I bought a size up for the baggy / "mini denim dress" look (this is really a shirt). It's a size kids 13-14. I paired it with a rope belt from ROXY girls. I wore navy "cheer" shorts (fitted) under the "shirt dress". I kept a button or two open for a relaxed look.

Shoes: Converse Platform (Nordstrom)

So glad platform sneakers are trending. Super cute and in style, helps us add a few inches to our height ;)
