Being a shorty at only 5"1, I've never been too keen on maxi dresses or skirts. I admire the boho chic look but it's just that I always thought I could never pull it off since I don't quite have long enough stems for it. Not only that, but it's extremely difficult to find any ankle-length skirts or dresses that don't utterly consume me and require 6 inch heels...until I found this little gem - at Forever21 no less so you know the price was right! 

I love high-low skirts because they balance out a petite frame and allow your legs to be shown off without the inappropriateness of a mini. They're playful and flirty and can easily be dressed up for the office, glammed up for a night in the city, or worn with trendy casual pieces for a more downtown vibe.

  5. wow I did not even know you are 5'1. you look taller to me. I love how this skirt hits you and frame you as well. The neck piece is unique but it works great with the whole outfit. I like this location. You're pretty.

  32. I totally agree! It's always an adventure trying to get the perfect fit on a longer skirt for us shorties! I'm 5'1 also! I recently have gotten into longer skirts/ dresses and maxis too though. It is all about appropriate proportioning. You look great girl!

    Best,
