How I Wear: A Maxi Skirt ( For Shorter Girls)

Being vertically challenged the fear us short girls have for maxi skirts, is more than you may think. It's not the case of 'will I look like I'm wearing a table cloth', it's more 'will I trip and kill myself on the bottom of it'. I mean I'm not even that short at 5'5, there are lovely ladies far shorter than me who want to rock this trend but also have the fear. I'm not saying it's all fun and games for taller girls, I have seen the too short on the arm/leg situation.

Shirt: Primark via charity shop
Necklace: New Look*
Skirt: eBay (here)
Shoes: OASAP*
Ring: eBay

I just wish there was more selection for both of us, anyway enough of my moan. I decided to brave it, and got this one off eBay. Thank to my flatforms, I'm actually in love. Short ladies fear not, when your maxi is maxing out just platform it up even with my bloated tummy I will wear this again and again - I want the other colours now. Just remember to belt at the waist, I just tied my shirt this way you keep your proportions and it stops the 'I have a sack on' look.

So I'm living in flatforms and boots in general, I want to wear my heels but I seem to be rushing round everywhere lately so it's on with the sensible shoes. Still my love for these boots continues, I love how they can make thee girls of things look grunge. I'm all about the grunge! I love this New Look cardigan, and how lush is this necklace! I have been finding all kinds of hidden gems in there and snapped up a pair of shoes for about £7 the other day. I was lucky enough to see their S/S collection for 2013, and was crying that I had to leave it all there. Once I post about it, you will be crying for Summer too! In the mean time New Look are running a comp for blogger to win 1 of 5 £100 vouchers , all you have to do is put together a Christmas party look! Easy.

Let me know your tips for wearing a maxi skirt.....



  1. I actually ADORE this outfit! You look lovely and can definitely pull off the maxi skirt. I would love to be 5"5 but unfortunately stand at the other end and am 5"11! :( x

  2. Oooft heavy in to the shoes missus. You look great!

  3. I love this outfit so much! Wish I could pull of blue as well as you do though :(

  4. I love this colour on you! I have a gorgeous maxi skirt but it rarely gets worn, I may dig it out this weekend!
