trend watch: midi skirts





Yes, I'm well aware of how late I am on the trend bandwagon.  However, do you know how difficult it is to thrift a midi-style in a hobbit size?  My fellow shorties can relate. 

The alleged rule for my height of 5'3" is to wear my skirts an inch above or below my knee or all the way to the ground.  The calf-length skirt has a tendency to make me appear shorter than I am (if that's even possible). 

While I do agree, that's is not the most flattering style for me, I do love a midi skirt and heels.  And when winter comes, I'll throw a baggy, oversized sweater over it with boots.  You can call me Ashley Olsen if you want, or whichever Olsen twin looks homeless.  There's a trend:  homeless chic...The Little Orphan Annie movement.

I'm wearing:  clutch, skirt, belt (thrift); tank (old navy); heels (urban outfitters)
