Holiday Style: Midi Skirts for Petite Ladies


Happy holidays my dear friends!! I can't believe Christmas is already upon us. I feel like this year has flown by. Is it just me or does time fly when you're older (or busier/ more productive) than before? I literally feel like busy season just ended but then realize it's right around the corner. WHYYYYY?!? Since I was behind on sharing some fun 2016 moments on my blog, I might be doing some throwback posts to share memorable parts of the year.

To make me feel better and distract me from what's to come, I thought I'd share one of my fave holiday time outfits. What I love about this outfit is that it can easily be worn to work or glammed up for a holiday party. I have been loving the midi skirt trend. It looks so chic and feminine. For a petite lady like myself, I like pairing midi skirts with nude heels to help elongate my frame. These pumps are my absolute favorite and are SO comfy. They're my go to for work (probably why I own them in 4 colors... if the shoe fits...). I can wear them all day and they stay so comfy.

I decided to buy this midi skirt in a blush nude. I was leaning towards a metallic rose gold but in terms of versatility, can't go wrong with a nice neutral. While I'm far from a minimalist, I want the majority of my wardrobe to be versatile. More wear = worth every penny (even though it's not expensive but still). I normally wear a US 6 in ASOS but I wanted the skirt to be fitted against my high waist and sized down to a US 4. It is fitted just right at the waist but roomy in the hips.

To top off the outfit, I went with a mock neck cropped sweater. I have been loving cropped tops, not to show off my joey but to tuck into high waisted anything and not have a ton of extra fabric bulking the look up. I am so particular about what touches my neck so I lean more towards mock necks rather then turtle necks. I get overheated easily even during the winter so a mock neck gives me just the right amount of warmth.

Athleisure: Gymshark Leggings & Reebok Classic Leather NT in Rose Gold


Hi y'all! I'm just a few days away from my holiday break and not working for the rest of the year :) When I'm not wearing business casual, you can almost always find me in athleisure. I love that workout clothes are getting so stylish!

I started hearing about Gymshark from my favorite fitness YouTubers. I really like their price point and quality. These leggings are high waisted, not super see through (I would say 90% opaque when you bend over) and have a small pocket on the outer thigh which is perfect for housing my cell phone when I'm working out. I got mine in a small and it fits me just right. I have the mesh and non-mesh versions.

My sneakers are super comfy and fit true to size. In certain lighting they have a pink reflection but overall they look like a pretty rose gold. They run true to size and I can wear them in/out of the gym.

Hope y'all are having a good week so far. Can you believe Christmas is almost here?!
