When I was young, I always wanted to be tall. In middle school, I had a super-tall friend who literally rested her elbows on my head. At just a hair under 5'2", I'm definitely on the short side. It's not that short, but enough so that I can rarely reach the top shelf of anything, my 11-year-old son is almost as tall as me, and people's dogs weigh more than me. People also tend to think that I'm at least 5 years younger than I am, based on my height alone. Not that I'm complaining about that.
However, on the plus side, I can sometimes buy the children's version of clothing for cheaper than the adult version. On a recent shopping trip, I bought this in the children's department at Zara for $45:
There isn't an exact match in the women's department but this coat is $90:
Not bad, right? Does anyone else do this? Would you if you could? Or am I just really strange? It's okay if I am.
