Over the past few months I’ve fallen more and more in love with midi skirts and dresses. I’ve always been a skirt and dress lover, but now that I have a one-year old to chase around, wearing anything too short is just asking for trouble (and a peek at my derrière.)
The key to wearing a pleated midi length skirt, especially when you’re on the shorter side (I’m 5’2, a.k.a., just plain short), is choosing the right balance.
When it comes to wearing midi skirts, balance is key.
I like a midi skirt with a bit of length, nothing that stops too high on the calf or else it cuts off my legs at a weird place and can actually leave me looking shorter. A higher-cut midi is stunning on someone with longer legs, it just doesn’t seem to work for me. Though on most people, even a shorter-length midi skirt can be pulled off with a pair of heels. At first, I wore midi skirts and dresses exclusively with heels, but now that I’ve found the right length for my legs, I pair mine with flats just as often as I do with heels, and I love the results.
The soft pleats of a great pleated midi skirt, paired with a pullover sounds like fall perfection to me. And now without further ado, a bit of midi eye candy for you …

I’m particularly smitten with this pleated lace skirt and this simple cotton pleated skirt that looks so great with boots (and is currently on sale!) …. Any favorites?
