Blush Textured Midi ($35)

Full midi-skirts are in vogue for the spring season. This one from Dorothy Perkins allows you to indulge in a trendy piece without breaking the bank.  I adore the ballerina pink hue and the wider pleats.  The texture on the fabric is nice as well.

I also found this white Topshop skirt ($96) and this black Aqua skirt ($78).  Prefer your midi on the slimmer side?  This high-waist midi-skirt from Express ($59) and this printed OXO skirt ($46) are both nice choices.

Plus-size: Asos Curve Midi Skirt ($33) Petite: Asos black midi ($38) and Dorothy Perkins Blush Midi ($35) Tall: Blush Knife-Pleated Midi Skirt ($39)

    I’d like to see how you would style this, especially for size 12 and up.

      If you’re concerned about wearing a fuller skirt, belt it. I would tuck in a structured button up blouse and grab a wide stretchy belt to accentuate the waist. Also, fuller skirt means slimmer blouse. Choose a fuller blouse and you’re going to look like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man even if you’re a size -0.

    How do you feel about midi skirts and dresses for us vertically challenged? I feel like that would just shallow me up and make me look even shorter.

    i ordered that ASOS Curve skirt in navy during last week’s 20% off of sale sale. I’m *so* excited for it to come in!

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]
