Out of Proportion

Top: Old Navy, $15 // Jacket: H&M, $20 // Jeans: Forme, $20 // Boots: Forever 21, $26

While the feel of this outfit was just what I had in mind, the proportions were a bit off. I desperately wanted the jacket to be longer to balance everything out. A pair of wide-leg jeans would have done the trick, but - alas - I ran out of time to change. Oh well, the result was merely the illusion of an oddly short torso and long legs... there are worse things.

i absolutely love that blue door that you frequently use as a backdrop for your photos! what kind of building has that beautiful door? i'd love to know, it just has so much character!

Well I like it. The colors are what draw my eye first, rather than the proportions. It's funny how our own eyes perceive things.

Like becca said, that blue door is magic :)

Love your outfit - the blue jeans with the pink top looks gorgeous on you and the polka dots break it up nicely :)

I definitely think the colors and the polka dots are the stars here, they look great on you (and with that great door)! I do know what you mean about the proportions not working out quite the way you had in mind, I had very much the same thing happen to me the other day. I agree with Daily Fashionista though, I think maybe it's largely an issue of self-perception - I don't think these proportions look off at all.

I think it looks great, I love those jeans on you. Those are one of those things that flatter very few people, but if you happen to be one of those people they look really cool!

I actually don't find the proportions to be off at all! I love the whole combination, and it looks so stunning against that blue door.

While it would look great with the alternatives you wanted, I also think it looks great as is! The proportions totally work. The necklace is what makes it all so great, I think.

I love this jacket.
We seem to have the opposite body. I'm 5'2" with a super long torso and really short legs. Maybe we should switch legs :)
