It’s hard to tell in pictures, but I’m pretty short at only five foot two inches. Sure, I wear heels pretty much all the time, but you still might think it would be hard to pull off maxi or full skirts. Today I am showing you that’s not the case.
When I’m shopping online, I do have to remember I’m typically at least half a foot shorter than the model so long skirts are even longer on me, but when I find the right skirt that looks like it could be totally overwhelming but ends up being just right, I get so excited.
I like the 1950s, glamorous vibes of both of these sweeping, showstopping outfits. They aren’t for every day, but when the moment strikes, they really shine.
The dress has been in my closet awhile, though I’ve only worn it a handful of times. This time, to the Ritz for their holiday fireworks, which, as you can see, are not to be missed if you happen to be in Orlando when the hotel sets them off. The grounds are also gorgeous and prime for a walk, day or night.
Though this dress is more of a midi than maxi, the skirt is very wide. It has blue flowers so I paired it with a blue bag and necklace to bring out that color.
I wore the skirt for a sunny trip to Celebration and a quick stop at the JW Marriott Bonnet Creek for some frose (it was so good!). You can probably tell I love this outfit and it put me in such a good mood for a super simple Sunday funday. The swirling, colorful skirt with the fun and frilly top. I did not stop the color party with the skirt and instead leaned into it with bright shoes, bag, and even makeup. I wouldn’t change a thing.
Though I would add another big skirt to my wardrobe, and I hope this inspires you to do the same.
