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!
