At a whopping 5’4″ I’m always looking for ways to magically make my legs look longer. You’ve heard me talk about leg lengthening shoe colors and styles, but this time I’m checking in to show you my latest favorite top to make legs look longer: the twist front top. It does the half-tuck we’re all so fond of here at TME for you. No guessing involved. No re-tucking involved. Yessssss.
I would seriously wear this top everyday right now. It’s so comfy. And I feel like I’m a bit more pulled together than when I have on a sweatshirt or regular tee. Plus, leg-lengthening, y’all. Who doesn’t love that? Even those of you with longer legs will find that this is a flattering and interesting top style, I do believe.
You may notice a bit of attitude in a certain toddler above. I thought we had cleared the 3 1/2 seriously-insane-strong-willed-craziness, but there are still glimpses of it here and again and the last week has been whew. Sienna turns 4 in May and is getting to be such a buddy lately, but is also still fully testing all those boundaries, as 3 year olds are apparently supposed to do. Thanks wine in the last pic for helping to calm the 5 o’clock hour nerves.
Top – Gibson Women’s Twist Front Cozy Pullover size Petite Medium – I adore this top. So cozy yet it has interesting details and that leg-lengthening twist. It’s lightweight, but fleecy, so great for early spring and fall. 3/4 sleeves usually get on my nerves, but these are just the right length and balance nicely with the warm fleece of the top. For another long-sleeved option, I’m loving this striped twist top with a lower hem in back. It’s a regular cotton knit, too, if you are experiencing warmer temps already.
Jeans – Lou & Grey Skinny Jeans – My favorite Lou & Grey skinny jeans. They are so soft. They run true to size overall but a bit big in the waist. I just ordered a size down to try out. They are seriously a new go-to for me every other day. Wearing size 27 here.
Boots – Dolce Vita Sonya Perforated Bootie – I picked these up in Florida and adore them. They’re a great lighter weight bootie in a perfect neutral color. They go with everything. They run a little bit big, probably because I wear them without socks. I went down to a 7.5 and am a true 8 usually. I’m wearing color Taupe. They are also on sale right now! This link to Dillard’s seems to have the most sizes in stock.

Any mama tips for those who have braved the strong 3 year old girl? It does take a village. And if that village needs a 3 year old that asks questions constantly, vehemently states her mind and continually requests Michael Jackson and Paula Abdul songs and dances? We’ve got ya covered, village.
