Today, I bring you yesterday’s work look.

I apologize for the wrinkles, but I snapped these at the
end of the work day. Cotton is so breathable and great for hot sticky
summers, but wrinkles are definitely a hazard.
Tea-length skirts are the big hemline trend this season, but I wasn’t sure if this hem length would work for me at 4’9.” I decided to give this trend a try with a two-piece set from eShakti that I previously featured on the blog here.

While I do prefer a mini or maxi length for me, it’s fun to step outside of my comfort zone with a new length.
Tea-length skirts can make petite girls look shorter. While I don’t really mind looking short, I do find an elongating look to be more flattering. To this end, I opted for an all-black look. The solid color block from head to toe keeps the look more streamlined. The cropped jacket help balance the proportions of the fuller long skirt.

Bracelets: The Limited and New York & Company (Available here and sold out on-line)
The heeled booties add height to create more of an elongating effect to the tea length. A basic heel would be more visually lengthening, but I loved the idea of adding ankle booties and edgier jewelry to make this look feel the most like me.
Would you wear a tea-length skirt?
