This is a cheery, lively pattern, and she’s got on great makeup, and she’s smiling. So what’s my problem?

I don’t KNOW. I should be cheering. It MIGHT be that from this angle in the photo, it seems to be that awkward length where it chops her off and stumpifies her. Or is it a touch too high-waisted on her, to the point where it crosses from cute to cutesy?

Is it how much it balloons? WHAT IS IT. I honestly can’t put my finger on what’s striking me oddly. Should I write it off to allergies and move on? This DOES seem potentially rife with pollen.
