Being short and busty, I’ve learned to be wary of clothing with a lot of volume. If I do wear volume on top, I’ve learned to balance out with a leaner bottom half, but also have discovered that going too dainty with my shoes leads to a very top-heavy look. So I love how these platform ankle boots add some visual weight to ground the look and provide balance.
And to balance out the heaviness/masculinity of the boots, I’ve added a light/feminine touch with a lacy scarf. (Oops, I see a snag in the back…have to get out the crochet hook to fix that!)
