How to wear a skirt in the summer or on vacation

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

How to wear a skirt on holiday

Doesn’t it sound more fun to say you’re going on holiday instead of going on vacation? These cold days and rainy weeks are making me long for some kind of beach vacation, so I busted out this warm weather outfit for inspiration. Since I’m an apple shape with a high waist, I wore my midi skirt super high on my waist and threw on a bandeau top to show just a sliver of midriff. Wearing a skirt with the other elements of this outfit keeps things feeling modern, casual and a little edgy. The pleather moto jacket keeps me from feeling too self conscious  about baring my midriff, and the bright coral flats and fedora scream summertime. I feel like this is something I’d wear on a beach in Cuba for some reason.

Black bandeau top.  Also great for wearing under low cut tops and dresses like in this post.

Have you ever done the skirt and midriff baring top as an apple shape? How did you make it work? I’d love to know.
