So... lately I have been obsessed with one particular trend that seems to have hit me a bit to hard, midi skirts. I have been eyeing this 50’s chic trend for quite a while but was not sure that it would compliment my petite figure and I would just end up looking frumpy (which I absolutely don't want).
Topshop has recently come up with amazing high waisted midi skirts and matching crop tops (which can be purchased separately). I have recently come across many fashion bloggers who have adorn them in such a beautiful manner that I decided to jump in the bandwagon too. But unfortunately the Topshop range is way over my budget, and I am not sure if I am willing to invest so much on an item that may or may not suit me. (Many people fail to separate the fact that, what they love on others may not look as good on you and vive versa.)
Since then I have been looking around for a cheaper alternative to this midi trend. I found a maxi skirt I already owned and worn quite a few times. Instead of wearing it on the waist, I wore it like tube dress and synched it on the waist with a skinny belt. Then I wore my all time favorite cardigan for this winter, (which amazingly goes with every outfit,of every color and also manages to make me look good every-time!) as a top, tucked it inside the belt and pulled out the rest carefully hiding the belt. I kept the accessories simple, just a watch, gold chain necklace and a clutch.
I am amazed that the outfit came together so well. Thankfully I could capture the outfit just in time before the beautiful sunset (reason for the changes in colors in each shot!).
