I love midi skirts and used to long for the day I could wear one and not look totally ridiculous. It’s almost magical as not too long ago I wouldn’t dare wear one for fear that it would look like I was being consumed by it. Today though, it’s almost as if petite lines have re-proportioned their midi. Beyond the great patterns and textures that are available, I find midi’s very flattering as looking at the these pictures, I almost forgot I am only 5′ 1.5″ tall.
The beautiful houndstooth pleated midi that I’m wearing in this post is from Banana Republic. It’s a staple in my office wardrobe. I’m wearing a size 0 as it offered me a bit more room in the waist than the 00 – an important consideration since I am now sitting for 8+ hours almost every day at work. This is something you may want to keep in mind when trying on clothes. I used to overlook this, but will be much more mindful of it now – at least until I can get used to my standing desk, that is ;).
The skirt in the post is no longer available but I have some other favorites that you can pick up on sale:
I hope you’re able to find one that makes you feel as great as these look.
