Orange Sweater and Bodycon Skirt
Orange is my go-to color. I just love it. And I love sweaters. And I love skirts. And I love, from Pinterest, this girl and her outfit and her hair.

Cute from Pinterest. Want her hair but too scared.

For the petite hourglass, however, this is not quite doable. The neck is too high. The sweater is too boxy. The skirt is too striped (sorry…wish tweren’t true).

I do, by the by, enjoy her lack of accessories.
So here’s my take. I added a belt for definition. I rolled up the sleeves of my lower-cut sweater (for faked arm length). I added wedge heels. And I exchanged the adorable stripey skirt for my more structure faux leather one.

Olive Midi Skirt

Look at this cutiepie from Pinterest with her little hat and olive midi skirt.

Cute outfit from Pinterest

Midi skirts can be tricky for petites, especially petite hourglasses. But I’ve found pairing it with heels and a fitted top, and making sure the skirt doesn’t have toooo much volume, can make it alllllll all right.

I swapped out the relaxed tank for a fitted long-sleeved tee shirt (scrunch that crap!) and did closed-toe wedges to streamline. And I exchanged the hat for a necklace just because I don’t heart myself in hats.

My version:
