One size does not fit all

Do you ever see a trend or a look that you absolutely love and can’t wait to try? Well if you have that’s how I felt about the maxi skirt trend. Let me begin my saying that I love maxi dresses they are my go to weekend look especially in the summer time. So when I saw the maxi skirts popping up everywhere I was kind of excited. Every time I went to the store I kept an eye out for a skirt that I liked I found the one pictured below at target. I had a hard time with the way it fit my reg. size of M was way too big and surprisingly so was the S (that should have been my sign not to buy) but I bought it in spite of the fit. I wore it finally and I decided to pair it with a dressy top to take away from that simple look. Now that I see the pictures I don’t like the skirt on me at all.  I don’t know if it’s the actually skirt or if maxi skirts just aren’t for me I mean I am only 5’2 J. Has that ever happened to you, when you like a trend but it doesn’t work for you?

Skirt: Target

Has visto una tendencia o un look que te llama la atención Y no puedes esperar a probar? Bueno, así me sentía de la tendencia de las maxi faldas. Primero deja les digo que yo amo lo vestidos maxi son mi traje favorito de los fines de semana. Así que cuando vi las faldas apareciendo por todas partes estaba un poco excitada. Cada vez que iba a la tienda mantuve un ojo abierto para mi falda. Finalmente encontré una que me gusto tuve un tiempo difícil con la forma no se miraba bien la talla M quedaba muy grande y también la S (debería haber sido my signo de no comprar la) pero la compre a pesar de la forma. Ahora que veo las fotos no me gusta la falda para nada.   No sé si es esta falda en particular o si pues la tendencia no es para mí (so solamente 5’2). Esto les ha ocurrido, cuando les gusta una tendencia, pero no funciona para ti?

  14. Such a fabulous outfit. I love the sequins. This is the perfect fall ensemble.

    I would love for you to stop by my blog and check out my latest outfit post inspired by my favorite Pretty Little Liars character.

  15. I love your skirt!! amazing!

  16. I am 5'2 as well and just wear mine a bit higher, maybe that helps!

  17. Why don't you like it :O?! I really think it works for you! This look in particular is beautiful. The purple in combination with the nudes and the mix of textures and materials is really good if you ask me. But then again, if you don't feel that way, you shouldn't be wearing something you don't like. Although I think that would be such a pity...

    Love! Sam

  22. Looking absolutely great! Would you like to follow each other? xoxo

  23. I like the skirt on you, but the main thing is that you like it on yourself.

    I totally get what you mean though, I'm often too short for most maxi dresses and skirts - I have to look real hard to get one in a good print that flatters my height and shape.


  24. I think you look great in the skirt! I'm only 5'0 and it is a common myth that us shorties can't wear maxi skirts but it is a lie! I love them and wear them often and you should too :)


    BTW I'm following you now!

  25. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!
    I absolutely love this outfit. I'm obsessed with maxi skirts lately and this colour and how you've combined it with the sparkly top is so fabulous. You look great!
