The Midi Floral Skirt

As a 5'2" person, I always struggle to find a long skirts that don't swamp me, or that are ridiculously long and end up dragging along the floor. Come summer it's great to wear short skirts, but sometimes you just don't want to have that much leg on show you know? 

When I saw this midi skirt on New Look's website, I instantly fell in love, but somewhat warily ordered it as I thought it would still end up being too long. However after trying it on I was pleasantly surprised to find it didn't swamp me! I think this is down to the fact it's high waisted and flows out into the wider skirt. 

On this day I paired the skirt with a green tshirt but I think a lighter colour would go well too. I wanted a plain top so that the pattern on the skirt would be at the forefront and not be overshadowed because it's SO BEAUTIFUL. I really love the mesh style interwoven with the floral and the pale peach undertones. I think this can be dressed up for the evening, or it can be paired more casually as I have done here. I think it'll also go great with tights, brown boots and a long black sleeved top come the winter.

I really enjoyed putting together this post, and I know that I'm never going be viewed as a fashion icon, but I love seeing what other people like to wear and I want to do more of these types of posts as I've just looked and my last outfit post was all the way back in 2015! I'm thinking about making it more 'favourite outfits for the season' or something along those lines; let me know what you think!
