I had every intention to blog about my progress every week for my #NoSpendber challenge but the second week of November was jam packed with marking so there was no chance. However, the week that just passed also saw me participating in a different style challenge which is a good reason to blog about both.

Wide leg pants (also known as palazzo pants) are quite the trend, but a wee issue I have being a petite person is the length. They’re usually waaaay too long for me so that I have to chop off a good portion of the leg, and by the time I chop it off the leg shape has changed and it kind of sits funny. I’ve tried culottes as wide leg pants but this only works for a certain cut of culotte. Here I’ll talk about how I made a pair of my own DIY wide leg pants as well as how I style them from a 5’0″ point of view.
While on my way to work for a meeting last week, a bout of rain caught me by surprise, so I popped into the Salvation Army op shop to grab an umbrella. As I had a little bit of time to kill before my meeting, I didn’t think anything of having a browse in the shop. Famous last words.
It’s pretty safe to say that given my ankle boot collection (currently sitting at about 8 pairs,and this doesn’t include pairs I’ve owned in the past) I am slightly obsessed with them. They’re a great choice of shoe for the transition seasons, and work so well with pretty much every item of clothing.
However, being 5’0″ AND having athletic legs means not all ankle boots are made equal – one pair that look amazing on my more lithe, long-legged gazelle counterparts can make my own legs look stumpier and shorter. So I decided I’d share my thoughts and tips with you on what ankle boots work best for me (and hopefully for my fellow petite readers).
The last few days of winter are upon us in Sydney and I’m trying to get the most out of my knits before the weather starts warming up.
So those of you who are 5’2″ and under will know my pain when we go shopping for bottoms, specifically pants.
Since having kids I haven’t worn a lot of dresses. Well in fact, I haven’t worn a lot of dresses in general since high school, as I’m more of a pants girl.
The outfit I’m wearing in this post has been entirely thrifted through the main ways I buy second hand items.
