I’m a shortie. If you’ve asked before how tall I am to see how something would fit on you I always say, “Uhhh 5’2-3″ish.”

Then comes the eye rolls.

Uh, Katey. How do you not know how tall you are?

It’s like those people who say they are a “schmedium” not quite a small, not really a medium.

Every time I go to the doctor they tell me one or the other [clearly due to Texas hair teasing] and so I just say what they tell me, people! I say what they tell me! haha.

But needless to say, I’m about 9 inches and 47  plastic surgeries away from being any sort of Giselle. So in terms of pants I typically think, “Skinny or nothing.”

I like skinny jeans because I’m short, they work with wedges and I can wear a flowy top.

Until the Nordstrom Anniversary sale kicked in. I tried these jeans, and fell in love! I’ve been living a lie! You can totally wear flared jeans with wedges and flowy tops, they just need to be shorter! It’s a different look and I think dresses up your ensemble.

I pulled lots of options for you below, most are on sale with Nordstrom Anniversary!

So to all my shorties and Giselles, you rock those flared jeans! You rock them!

  5. This outfit makes you look at least 5’4″ (wink) seriously though, the flares do have a leg lengthening affect. Love the whole boho vibe you’ve got going in this post.
