..Pretty Pink Shorts and Five Inch Heels

The deets: Boutique 9 heels; Ray-Ban sunnies; Betsy Johnson chain; Piperlime top; J.Crew shorts; Lancome "Midnight Rose" lipstick; Bracelets are South Moon Under, & ASOS.

It doesnt matter how casual my outfit is, I need to have on my 5 inch heels if there is a party, brunch, date or just a general pubic outing involved in order to feel confident.  It might not look like it though the internet, but I'm only 5'2 so I need all the help I can get to shed my natural tree-stumpy state.  I consider wearing flats in public a a version of my personal hell.  Some people are afraid of spiders, I am afraid of injuring my foot and being forced into rainbows for a night on the town...oh wait, that DID happen one time in Dewey beach and it was HORRIBLE. I still have nightmares about it.

Side-note: I love matching my lipstick to my shorts. Don't you?

  14. You are rocking this look!!! I need to try heels with shorts and top more often! ;)

  15. SO cute!! I love the bright shorts. I am short too (5'1), but my feet would not be able to hand heels all day everyday. Whenever I go out for dinner, drinks, movies etc. I have to wear heels though.

  16. Head to toe soo cute. Ps you're on my blog post todaayyy.

  17. Haha, I love that your fear is being out in public in flats! So funny. I'm the opposite - I hate really tall heels because I tower over everyone which makes me feel equally uncomfortable.

    I LOVE your pink shorts - I've been on the hunt for a cheap pair :)

  18. You look great! I love how heels can dress up a pair of shorts. I sure don't need them because I'm already 5'7 and tower over everyone, but it doesn't stop me haha

  19. I had NO idea you were petite, Erin! You look so much taller in your photos. I'm much shorter than you but I don't wear heels nearly as often...I actually really love my flats and flat sandals!

  22. Love the pink shorts!!! Major props for wearing heels all the time. Even though I'm 5'1" I wear flats everywhere since I'm so clumsy.

  23. Gorgeous outfit, love the shorts. Beautiful xx

  24. the shorts are absolutely gorgeous, and i am totally with you on the flats vs. heels thing! although i try to stick to about 4 inches. 5 inches just gets uncomfortable!!

    CupcakesOMG!

  25. I LOVE your pink shorts and your matching lipstick - so pretty! I can't believe you're only 5'2"! I would have never guessed. I'm a shorty too and heels definitely make me feel more comfortable :)

  28. Love the outfit. I'm five foot even and die in heels! Not sure if I can blame it on my flat feet, or the little bit of tom boy that still lives in me. Still, I avoid heels when I can. I love the shirts & top though...beautiful :)

  29. Great look! Those heels are awesome!

  30. I wish I had enough lipstick to match it to the clothes I am wearing. I need to step up my game I think! The fact that you wear such tall heels so often is amaizng to me. You are a brave woman! :)

  31. I love this outfit. It look a bit better than casual. And I'm also short so I hate walking around in flats, I try to always add some height.

  34. haha you are too funny! I wish I had that attitude, because I love the way heels look, I am just not coordinated enough to wear them all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love this, took a casual look and made it look awesome! :) Ha-ha if I wore lip stick I think I would love to match it as well. Oh and I am only 5 feet, I hear ya there! Cept I never wear heals, I should but I dont.

  38. Tree-stumpy?! LOL That is the 1st time I've heard short people referred to as tree-stumpy. I like to refer to ourselves as "fun-sized". Kind of like the packages of mini chocolate bars. :D

    Very cute outfit --casual but still trendy with the great accessories!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love my heels too! I just don't "feel" it when I am in flats! And look at how HAWT you look!!! I still can't believe you are 5'2". You look so much taller...guess it's the 5" heels! ;)

  40. damn girrllll. haha. no you look amazing! I'm impressed with the shoes. I can't do more than 3 inches. love the bright lips too :)

  41. Love the gold shoes and all the gold accessories! Super hot :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love the shorts. Cute top too! Sometimes I wish I were shorter so I could wear heels more often. I'm only 5'6 but I seem to always be surrounded by people who are around my height so I always feel like a giant in heels. I still love 'em though!

  43. Hey Erin! Love the shorts and shades!
