A Secret…

Written by ashley on October 11th, 2012

Sometimes I shop in the kid’s section.

I was recently at Target and cruised through the girl’s department when I spotted these amazing pants. Having short legs can really be a blessing since for the first time in forever it’s a pair of pants that I don’t need hemmed.

ps – if you love Target as much as I do, check out this amazing blog: Target Does It Again

My cameraman gave me no inclination that my necklace was messed up. Sorry! #bloggerfail

It’s messy, but sometimes I like to do a little french braid in the back of my hair to keep all the whispies in place.

    xo danni


  28. Maria says:

    Ha! I shop in the girl’s department too. I can often find tops that fit me, but I have a little junk in my trunk so pants are a no go :) Love your hair! Wish I knew how to French braid my own hair…

  29. Ashley Udoh says:

    You look so cool with your striped pants. Those heels are fab as well.


  30. Emily says:

    You look ADORABLE in those pants. They are perfect on you.


  31. I have the opposite problem – finding pants that are long enough!! Those striped trousers look amazing on you though. Very cool!


  32. Valerie says:

    Love the pants! Too bad I’m 5’10″ and that would never work for me! (unless capri pants are back – dear God)
