For the longest time I avoided midi dresses. I just thought they looked a bit off because I’m 5’3″, but then I found a few that I really liked and just decided to wear them and see how I felt. Let me tell you, they weren’t that bad. It was actually surprising. I thought I would feel uncomfortable, but I felt just as wonderful when I wore my other dresses. Plus, you can never go wrong with a black dress AND one with POCKETS! I really like this one because I wore it at the beginning of summer (oops, I forgot to post these photos earlier), but I’m still currently wearing it now, but with different shoes, accessories and some outer layers.
I think fashion should definitely be exploratory. Yes, wear items that you feel comfortable in, but also branch out to items you never thought you could “pull off.” Now this doesn’t mean I’m only going to wear midi dresses from now on, it just means that I have more dress options now 🙂 Is there an item that you thought you could “never wear” and it turned out you could?! Let me know in the comments. And to all my fellow short girls, we CAN wear midi dresses after all!
