Anyhoodle, I cleverly named my half-purple-half-yellow fish "Yurple." You know, because that's "purple" and "yellow" mashed together. This name amused me endlessly, and I'm pretty sure I found ways to bring Yurple into conversations that had nothing to do with Yurple, just so I could say Yurple's name.
"I have so much history homework to do tonight!"
"Yeah, me too. You know what else I have to do tonight? Feed Yurple."
So, with all that in mind, here's my bluellow outfit... or my yellue outfit. Whichever you prefer:
silk top, gap
infinity cardigan, j.crew
maxi skirt, f21
monocle necklace, gift
gold bangle, kate spade
jeweled bracelet, j.crew
leaf ring, from australia
I'm still a big fan of long skirts, despite being a scant 5'2" -- I think the trick is to wear it at your natural waist to make your legs look longer instead of shorter. A long cardigan tends to add to the lengthening effect, so my J.Crew Infinity cardis have become very helpful! I also tend to stay away from tiered maxi skirts because I feel like those styles break up the long line of the skirt too much for a shortie like me, thereby destroying the "why, I am tall!" illusion.
If you're a petite gal wondering if you can pull off long lengths, maybe those tips can help you find the perfect maxi-length skirt/dress for you!
