I loved the idea of this skirt with the bright colors and midi length that makes it different from my go-to pencil skirt. However, normally a midi skirt is perfect for those 5’10”, long torso, lean body type (you know who you are… we love you but hate you. 🙂 ) I’m unfortunately quite the opposite body type being only 5’3″ and carry most of my weight around the middle. I ordered this one online and I was pleasantly surprised with the way it looks. It does add a little to my hips because there are pockets (but I love skirts with pockets, so I’ll consider it a “good” thing!) and overall I’m really happy with the skirt – excited to try and pair different color options with all those stripes!
