Sunday style// Not so mini skirt

Sweater// Gap   Skirt//F21   Shoes//Forever Young
Watch//Kate spade   Bracelet//leather man in Prague   Necklace & Earrings// Anthro

 

I found this skirt at Forever 21 and instantly fell in love with the print. Sadly, It was a mini skirt and way too short for my liking (if you can’t tell, I like to dress really modestly). But I though I’d try on the XL to see if I could get the length… and SUCCESS! It doesn’t fit perfect, but I still love it.
Happy Sunday!

    This whole outfit is amazing. I'm especially in love with those thin leather bracelets you can get anywhere in Europe. It's my life goal to own one. :)This is one of my new favorite outfits of yours!

    I was going to say \”how did you find a cute midi skirt at Forever 21?!\” But then you explained 🙂 But….how does an XL fit you at all?? Is it pinned up a ton?! Anyway, it's super cute, I love the color and the SHOES!!Visiting from My Style Monday!-Jessihaircutandgeneralattitude.blogspot.com

    I've always followed this little trick, sometimes it works wonders sometimes it doesn't! Finding good length in skirts is so hard sometimes, especially with summer around the corner. Love your cute shoes also!! Visiting from My Style Monday!

    Ah, that is a fantastic and crafty idea! Way to stick it to the mini-skirt man!

    Hi! I popped on over from the blog hop @Style Elixir. I think your outfit is really pretty. 🙂 The length isn't so bad. You could sew some lace on the bottom. Or add a longer petticoat or slip. Just some ideas for you. Nice to meet you sweetie. Come visit me as well.Debra@stylewisebydebra.com

  17. Nikki on March 26, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    SO cute! I love your polka dot skirt! I totally go up a size or two to get length (when it is possible)! Nikkithefashionablewife.com

    There are so many things I love about this outfit. I love each individual item and how you paired it all together. Now I need to go find me a watch like yours and those boots. 🙂

    That skirt is so, so cute! I'd never guess it was really big on you. Looks fabulous.~FringeGirl

    I think that might be more of a mid-length skirt if it hits at the knee. Cute ensemble!Popped in from http://WWW.thriftshopcommando.blogspot.com

    This outfit is adorable, it's something I would totally wear. How did you get the waist to fit you, in order to get the length? Did you take it in? That's such a good idea though, to go bigger size to get the length, I hate how short the skirts are at F21.

  25. Kayla @ Home Coming on March 27, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Great outfit. I love it with those boots!

  26. B. on March 27, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    I love that skirt – I can't believe you found it at F21!

  28. Cindy on March 28, 2013 at 1:07 pm
