I am not a very girly girl. There is nothing wrong with girly girlishness - I'm very much of the opinion each to their own - but the way to my heart is not through pink fluff, nail varnish, macarons and cupcakes (ugh, I feel dirty just typing that word. FAIRYCAKES FTW!), red roses, frilly underwear or fashion magazines. It's through green things, lashing of sport, giant slabs of cake, freesias, hoodies and books. Lots of books.
I lived in jeans and oversized cardigans for years and years and am a relatively recent convert to frocks. Frills and cutesy swishyness don't come naturally to me. That doesn't mean I can't don a heart print frock every now and then though. Obviously it's in a nice sedate shade of navy - can you imagine the horror if this frock was made in pink? - and I have to add some green into the mix, but the hearts are very much in evidence.
Proof that short girls can wear maxis! Just make sure you pick one with a block colour or pattern so it doesn't matter when you have to lop six inches off the bottom...
