Is it Friday again? Sure doesn’t feel like it as I have been having a very rough week. Two sick kids (coughs, throwing up, ear infection) plus my recovering self and I’m super deprived from sleep. So this will not be a long post but instead a styling tip of how to transform a midi skirt into a mini that is perfect for layering.
A while ago I saw a super cute sweater dress that has a lace trim, the problem is that it is a designer brand and cost close to a grand. So instead of paying big bucks, I decided to recreate it with pieces I already have. This Topshop chiffon midi skirt is about 5 years old, I wore it and tied a belt around my waist and fold the skirt over until it is the desired length. Make sure you tighten it well so that the skirt doesn’t slip down. For the layering, chunky and boxy sweaters are better because it conceals the belt as well as the extra fabric that is being folded within. I bought this sweater with tie sleeve details during the Zara sale and it has a high-low hem which makes it the perfect piece to layer and show off the pretty ruffle trim that is now peeking out underneath. It’s okay if the trim is not perfect, the movement of the skirt will hide any imperfections. Have you did some DIY styling and made a certain look work? It is Chinese New Year this weekend and we will try to celebrate even though the whole family is sick.
