Let me introduce you to my new love, the maxi skirt. So comfy, so casual, and effortlessly chic. I can’t believe I didnt try these before!!! I thought that petite women were not supposed to wear them- that they would get “swallowed up” in all that material. Maybe I’m just in denial, but I think that the maxi skirt is a great trend for all shapes. And I intend to wear this one all summer long!! I highly recommend it. I got it in the petite xs and its perfect with heels, or I can roll it up once and wear it with flats!
There are a million things that determine what vibe your outfit gives off. I wore this outfit on Saturday when I was working in the Free Clinic. Well, not this exact outfit. For work, I put on some flat loafters, de-puffed my hair and obviously lost the sunglasses. The outfit was work appropriate and didn’t really stand out (as I like my work outfits to be). Afterwards, I threw some hairspray into my hair, donned super-tall heels that I can barely walk in, and put back on those sunnies… a little more chic.
This is dress #1 from anthro that I’m really loving right now. Its a baggy cut to begin with, so I think it can be worn two basic ways. One, belted with flat shoes. Belting the dress makes it a few inches shorter, so I think heels would be a little too much. My lazy self wears flip-flops all summer (and spring and fall) as long as I can get away with it. Way two would be letting the dress shape fall naturally and throwing on some high heels. Since the dress wouldn’t be super short and it doesn’t show cleavage, I think heels would be a great way to make it a little more flattering.
