To Great Lengths



Taking these pictures was quite a difficult feat - my heels kept getting stuck in the slits in the stair and I had to watch my step and pose at the same time. What a crazy life I lead - am I right? But anyway, I decided to try out a skirt with a longer length. I was always scared of wearing them since I thought, being short, I would not be able to pull off a skirt past my knees without looking like a midget. However, I bought this skirt from Starr a few months ago, and decided to give it a try instead of hemming it straight away. It's actually a complete maxi skirt that goes to my toes, but I'm not THAT daring so I just wore it as a dress to shorten the length.

It's currently raining like crazy and I can hear the downpour coming down on the roof of the office. I wish I was at home buried in my blankets - but then again I don't have time these days to relax much.  It's been a stressful and ridiculously busy two weeks and it's not going to slow down for quite some time. I'm going to press the pause button on a few things though and take a breather at home tonight. Nothing heals faster than some home cooking and your mother's reassurance.

  10. The length is quite lovely on you, and no you do not look like a midget. I am also a big fan of the skinny belt over the sweater. So chic.

  13. When I saw this I thought "Could it be? Could she finally be wearing this supposed 'Mom dress'?" But then it's from Starr hehe :) Love it on you though! The length looks really comfortable for Spring/Summer :) I say keep it at this length since you already have a mini polka dot one hehe!
