You may recognize this look from the new Morning Lavender Fall Lookbook I curated and styled. I loved this look so much that I decided to keep it for myself (trust me it’s hard not to want to keep everything when you own a boutique) and share that we don’t need models’ bodies to rock the same look. It’s true our model Megan looks so much better wearing it but I have learned to be happy with my petite frame and comfortable with the fact that there are things I just can’t wear or pull off with my short stature. Sometimes I think about starting a blog where I would share “what I would wear if I were normal size”. I mean there are so many cute styles that would be perfect if I were just 4 inches taller! I guess that’s why I started Morning Lavender – so I can style regular, everyday women the way I would want to dress! And every time we do a photoshoot or lookbook, it’s like I get to play dress up on a life size doll.
Anyway, I finally found this navy swing sweater dress that doesn’t look like it’s swallowing me up and is both flattering and so very comfortable. When I curated it for the shop, I especially loved the dress because of the high neck, long sleeves and slightly flared style of the dress. It really is the perfect Fall dress! To make the dress even more flattering on my frame, I added a belt to show more shape. I wore it purposely high on the waist to make my torso look shorter and the rest of me longer. I have also been loving the look of over-the-knee-boots, which elongates your legs as well. The scarf is a tad oversized for me but I think it framed the look well and added something different and playful to the outfit! Plus you can never go wrong with plaid this season! I do feel like I should be in London or somewhere more Fall than Orange County.
