Well, well, well…it’s Tuesday and I’m feeling fancy AF. I’ve noticed recently that I’ve been wanting to get fancy mid-week. I have no idea why but out of nowhere some days I just want to feel dressed up. So I’m just going to roll with it. Now please read this next sentence in Carrie Bradshaw’s voiceover: “Which makes me wonder….are Tuesday mornings the new Saturday nights?”

Now feeling fancy is a state of mind, of course but it does help when I’m in a pleated maxi skirt. Or is this a midi skirt? I can’t tell. It kept riding up to my natural waist line because of my Spanx and my camisole so I think it’s meant to be a maxi skirt but it *wants* to be a midi skirt. Which honestly I don’t hate, for a maxi skirt wear it on your hips and for a midi wear it more towards your natural waist line or even a little higher. (Also yes, I’m wearing Spanx. These ones here.)

I am in the 8 of the skirt and I think it runs just a tad loose. I would say that this skirt could comfortably fit an 8/10 waist. I have a rounder waist, and it’s looser so that’s why I say it runs just a bit big. I always get a little nervous suggesting a different sizing because everyone’s bodies are different (Remember one size does not fit all!) but I do think this skirt is generous in it’s fit. I personally wouldn’t size down because I don’t want it to be tighter in the waist, but if you DO, then yes size down one. I like a bit of a looser look with an elastic waist.

This camisole sold out in like 4 seconds at the Anniversary Sale but I found a really similar one from Urban Outfitters (random, right?) It doesn’t have the lace look but I almost like it better because it seems a bit more sophisticated without the lace, especially with this look. (I’m loving the bronze color of the camisole too, but I’ve linked the beige!)

Fit Details

I am in the 8 of the skirt And I am 5’9” for heigh reference. I would say if you have a smaller waist to hip ratio, then size down one. It fits true on me but loose. I am in the large of the camisole because #boobs. But it does fit TTS. I am wearing the medium of the Spanx I linked and a 36D of the bra I linked.

  1. It is true that this skirt awards you the title of Golden Girl. But, even if you don’t wear anything so chic and sophisticated, you will remain unique and you will forever remain a Golden Woman.
