Pretty in Pink

Jacket- Forever 21 (similar), Top- Primark (similar), Skirt- Dorothy Perkins (similar), Booties- Dolce Vita, Bag- Michael Kors, Bracelet- J.Crew Factory

I am now fully convinced that short girls can wear midi skirts. I'm 5'3" with hips, so I try to be pretty conscious of wearing things that make me look shorter or wider. Regardless, I decided to try out the full midi trend with this skirt in pastel pink, and I love it! The skirt hits a little past my knees so I didn't feel totally overwhelmed by it.  I like that the waistband is tight and lays flat. I don't need anything that's going to poof out around my hips! For me, the key to successful styling was to wear it pretty high on my waist, and I said no to flats and went with a shoe that has about a 4 inch heel.

I'm not sure I'll be picking up any more fuller midi skirts as they aren't the most versatile pieces, but I am no longer afraid of the length. The secret to pulling it off really is in the styling. I'm excited to see what other outfit combinations I can create with this skirt!

  8. I have the same fear of midi skirts - we seem to be simmilar shapes and heights - so sounds like we have the same "problem" areas. In saying that, you look beautiful in this outfit! That skirt is super flattering and love how you've styled it :)
