Petite Outfit #13 Sandals or Wedges? (Smart Casual/Date)

Boo!

I'm probably just being a wimp, but I'm definitely feeling the chills now. Although Summer is coming to an end, and with it turning more chilly I'm still going to share with you all an outfit I wore this summer! 

I would also love some advice on which pair of shoes you all think best fits this outfit, or what shoes you would have chosen to pair with this outfit.
Petite Outfit Idea - High Low Skirt (lifeasapetite)


Although high-low skirts were seen more frequently last year I still really like them. They probably aren't the best skirt style for petites, however I just love the flowy-ness of them. And as always I chose a neutral coloured one. 

I also love scalloped cut on clothes as well. It just adds a little more to a simple white cami like the one I'm wearing. I think it complements the hem of the high-low skirt as well.

So the chose I had were these jelly nude sandals or some denim bow wedges. So I guess the choice was between being a little taller or not :p

I bought these jelly sandals from Primark a couple of months ago for £4 which I thought was pretty good, and they're actually quite comfortable. Also if it is raining there's not worry of them getting soaked :p

In the end I chose to wear the wedges. What do you guys think? Does it look a little strange or do you think it goes? :) Would you have worn sandals, or heels or even converses etc?

    I definitely prefer the wedges. Being of short stature like you, I always go for a bit of height :)

  2. Ooooh, this outfit is adorable! Love it. I prefer the wedges too. I recently wore wedges and a high-low maxi dress to a wedding and loved how it looked although casually I'd probably go for the jellies because I'm 5ft7! I wish I was petite and could get away with heels without feeling like a giant! Haha x

  3. I love this outfit! I must admit I haven't worn a high low skirt in ages but I probably would have chosen comfort and gone with the sandals. That said, the wedges you chose also look great!! Sitting on the fence much!! Sorry :) xx

  4. Honey you look adorable. Love the skirt paired with the top. Perfect. As perfect as the pairing with wedges. It's just my humble opinion but with the sandals there would have been too much going on, the scallop hem of the top is in perfect harmony with the high/low skirt, those two things are the key pieces, it's a perfect match, the sandals with its bow and cuteness would have called too much attention, does it makes sense what I babble, lol. Anyway you look fabulous TT.
    Happy Sunday honey

  14. I used to love wedges, but not anymore, hahaha, maybe because I just changed my style and wedges is just not me for the current time. But yes, there were times I was so in love with wedges a lot! I love high wedges (around 7-9 cm) that's good to raise our height and I guess that's the best height I would do if I wear wedges rather than medium height (3-5 cm)

    And anyway, love your outfit, gosh that skirt! So lovely! Were you in holiday?

  33. The wedges go great. Like you I am petite and often like to add a bit of height via shoes. But I do love my flats. I think either would go but as the skirt has length at the back the wedges would be my choice too.

  34. It is so chilly and Autumnal but it is nice to be reminded of warmer days. Love the jelly sandals from Primark.

  35. Love the skirt and the wedges are in my opinion the best option for this outfit, it's what i would wear. I am petite too and know how difficult it is choosing shoes to wear with outfits sometimes.

    It's a really pretty look :)

  48. I always had been in love with backless dresses. I also have
    a backless one, but when I went to the market for getting something nice, my
    shopping wasn’t complete without http://byebra.com
    breast stickers—a product that shapes
    women’s breasts and is like a breast sticker. Have you ever tried that before?
