The Midi Skirt

A trend is a trend. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. And just like any other trends that come and go I always have high hope that somehow I can pull it off and fits into my lifestyle. Case in point the midi skirt. I have finally found the one that were not overwhelming my petite frame. A bonus points that I do not have to take it to my tailor for alterations. As we all know, alterations can be very pricey. The previous one's that I have ordered are quite overwhelming me. Having to pay too much for an alteration is not even worth it. This baby fits just right and it flares which I love a lot and I feel good wearing it. I like to follow trends and who doesn't but I am also realistic that there are trendy stuff that just simply won't work for me, my lifestyle or my petite frame. 
Trend is good but being a slave to trend is not cool ! 
Sure we love our mini's and the maxi's have their place and time but why not give room for the midi. 
It is girly, lovely and just screams Mad Men polish ! 
Twirling, not optional either...
I hope you have a wonderful week. Be kind to one another.
Thank you from the heart.
xoxo

  20. This midi looks perfect on you - you're so right about it being a great length for petites! And this color is just so fabulous for spring. I love the lace top you paired it with too. such a stylish and sophisticated outfit! I can see this being perfect for a night out to dinner or a lunch date!

  25. Totally feel you - I have the toughest time finding midi skirts that fit me well! I find that most of the time it overwhelms my frame and it looks like the skirt is wearing me instead of the other way around!
    I LOVE how this skirt looks on you! The silhouette is so pretty and the color is so flattering on you! What a perfect find! You look beautiful :]

  26. I know what you mean in terms of finding just the right fit with the midi skirt. I still haven't found one yet.
    But yours is pretty darn fabulous. It doesn't overwhelm your frame and the colour just pops against your skin tone! Love this look!
