This outfit is totally inspired by (stolen from :)) Jennine. her post reminded me to play around with my clothes, and originally I wanted to try this with my H&M skirt, but I really didn’t like it as a dress. And paired with a denim shirt, it was WAAAAY too prairie for my taste.
This is my beloved Madewell maxi skirt turned into a tube dress. I have a tube dress by James Perse that I like better because it’s a better length for me (hits at the knee). This skirt is better as a maxi skirt, I think – because of my large legs/calves, I can’t do the midi-length. I’ve tried – really I have – but it doesn’t work. I do love the idea of wearing a longer skirt two ways though, and I’m not saying I won’t actually wear this outfit again, but on me, skirts need to hit at the knee, or fall to my ankles – not somewhere in between.
This is better, no?
What length skirt do you wear? short? long? in the middle? (just for the record, I’m only 5’3″ and I wear maxi skirts constantly – it’s a MYTH that you can’t wear a long skirt if you’re short. you should try at least :))
