Stripey Bottom

I've been seeing bloggers and people on the street wearing tight mini skirts. I wanted to try it out but was also pretty sure that this trend isn't meant for women my size. Then I saw this skirt for $14 and thought 'why not? maybe? could I?'
If you follow me on the Twitter you may have seen that I was lamenting that I didn't have any bloggers who I could text to get a second opinion. I put it back on the shelf twice. I asked the Gentleman Caller, but since he's a dude he was just like "oooo mini skirt!" which, while appreciated, was not terribly helpful. So here it is. Still not totally sold. At some moments I felt sexy and confident and others I felt that really it is much too short.

cardigan: Ricki's
top: Big W
skirt: Target
leggings: Target but in USA
shoes: Quick Brown Fox

Today I am thankful for the wonderful friends that I have even though they are a million, kajillion, babillion kilometres away.

I think it looks awesome... the leggings keep it from looking too short or tight or anything else that you might worry about. Adorable!

I could say "It looks great" or "I'd like to see it a bit longer" or what have you, but if you're not comfortable or unsure of it, it's up to you! Keep playing around with it until you're confident in it!

I think it looks great!! I know what you mean though, I see so many plus sized girls doing the mini. Some it looks great on, others I don't think it looks great, but as long as they are loving it that's all that matters. I'm not so sure I could do a mini anymore, been a LONG LONG time since I've done one. But on you, I think you definitely rock it!
