The Long and Short of It...






oversized, cropped grey tee: JCPenney :: navy maxi skirt: F21 :: black tank: F21:;
turquoise belt: Liz Claiborne, thrifted :: white sandals: F21 :: beads: Icing
turquoise earrings: Pac Sun?

I was pretty amused when the title came to me moments earlier... As I've said before, I am not  usually a maxi-wearing femme since I am only 5 feet tall, and long bottoms tend to swallow me up.  However, lately, I've been drawn to these lovely, full skirts. To prevent myself from looking too swamped in fabric, I choose skirts in a solid color, that way, it looks like I'm being lengthened. 

I will not be limited by my height. I refuse to be a statistic
(hee hee)
And yes, I like to tilt my head a lot. I think it adds to the cuteness points. 


  1. Mine was a mistake! I bought the thing with full intentions to hem it, saw this month's EBEW, decided to put it off, wore it yesterday, and have decided to leave it as is. I felt awesome all day with the wind playing games with it. I love the color of your belt. I'm obsessed with teals and seafoams lately... :)

  2. I think you can totally pull off the long skirt! And the head tilt is uber cute. Uber cute.

    You look rockin' in maxis and should wear one everyday: agree


  4. I LOVE your skirt! I am also only 5ft tall. Those sandals are Perfect! Love them.

  5. I love this skirt and the color of your belt is amazing!! You are so TINY!! I am 5ft 8in!! Cute gladiator sandals. Kiah

  6. Yay! Another reason I am glad I found your blog. I'm 5'4" and always am sad when I find my favorite bloggers are waaaay taller, so the same outfits totally wouldn't work for me.

  7. Those colors look great with the orange background. Cute sandals.


  8. love the sandals! amazing :D
    your so brave to wear a maxi - im 5"2 and im not brave enough to do it (im really worried itll make me look teeny!)
    seeing how great you look has inspired me to look around for a maxi for summer now! :D

  9. CUUUUUUUUUTE! I'm gonna have to dig out my maxi skirt!

  10. I love a good rebel! And I love this maxi skirt on you. Those sandals are terrific! I have a weakness for strappy, criss cross sandals like these. If only I could get my small "hooves" into them! :)

  11. Haha I love the title. Also, you look good in a maxi skirt. Seeing everyone in them for EBEW makes me want one. I am 5'4" and I always feel like they make me look like I'm pregnant.

  19. Love your skirt. You look amazing. Your belt is in one of my favorite colors.

    I love maxi dresses and it definitely takes a little work for me to pull off the look because I'm on the short side too.

  20. I totally tilt my head in all of my pictures too! Haha I don't even notice it anymore because that's my normal picture taking pose! Love you in this maxi skirt so freaking cute!

  21. you pull off the maxi skirt really well - that's inspiring! now maybe I should hunt one down... I have a maxi dress but I think it may look different.. but i think I'll try a maxi dress next time if I can!

  22. Ps. I am also petite thats why im not sure of maxi skirts - I'm 5"2..

  23. So it is possible for us wee ones to wear maxi skirts and an oversized tee together! I would never have attempted it, but I might now seeing how well you pulled it off :)

    This HK camera you speak of... I can only imagine its cuteness!

  24. I like to tilt my head too! Yeah i did realize the effects are somewhat cuter. Sometimes I had to refrain from doing the two fingers action in every single photo ..
