This outfit was a hit! Wore it to a traditional engagement ceremony and felt comfortable, cute and stylish. I did size up and would maybe recommend you do so too. I’m 5’9” and the skirt didn’t feel too short. I got tons of compliments on the fit. I can’t wait to pair to top with high rise jeans and the skirt with a body suit! Three outfits in one - a S T E A L!
