For ages I was convinced I was too short for a Midi skirt. I used to stalk them online, but it was too depressing when you'd look at the details and discover the model was 5 foot 11 and the perfect midi on her was definitely not going to work for little old 5 foot 2 me. Recently the petite ranges in the high street have caught on however, and I've gone a bit nuts over them.
This particular number is from Miss Selfridge, kindly sent to me from the House of Fraser petite collection. I admit this outfit is not terribly different from this previous midi skirt outfit, but when I find a style I love I tend to rebuy it over and over!
I read recently (I can't actually remember where!) that when matching skirt length to heel height an above the knee skirt works with a low heel, but a knee length or below skirt looks best with a high heel, so I put on my tallest shoes for this one. I think they may have a point, particularly when you are on the short side already. Which means if I am going to keep buying longer skirts I need to get a few more pairs of heels into my arsenal!
