Ahhh, the midi skirt- such a pretty, ladylike style. I bought my first midi skirt from H&M a few years ago and I remember being nervous that I wouldn’t be able to pull off this trend. Just as with maxi skirts though, it’s all about finding the right length for your height. The skirt I bought was a lovely blush color in tulle and I immediately felt more ladylike as soon as I put it on (you can see me wearing it in this post from nearly 3 years ago!).
That skirt was a bit of an impulse buy and I thought I’d only wear it occasionally; however, I found that it was really easy to dress up and down and I wore it many times to work and at night. At some point a couple of years ago, I pulled it out of my closet one morning and discovered that there was a huge stain streaking down the front of the skirt. I tried to gently scrub it out (since the material is so delicate), but to no avail. I’m still not sure what happened and I was pretty sad that it was damaged because I loved that skirt. I think I still have it tucked away somewhere in case someone can one day work some magic on it.
Since then I haven’t bought another midi skirt, but I’ve decided that it would be a great piece to add to my closet now. I’m specifically looking for a swingy black version and I think it would be perfect for this late spring/early summer weather we’re experiencing right now. One of my goals this year has been to be more thoughtful with all of my clothing purchases and I always like to look on Pinterest for styling inspiration when I’m considering a new item of clothing. Right now I can picture myself wearing a midi skirt with…
– a little leather to balance the ladylike cut.
– a crop top (!?!) and denim jacket for a sweet springtime look.
– a little lace and a statement necklace.
– an eye-catching belt and strappy heels (or more likely, strappy sandals).
– leopard, because leopard goes with everything.
– a classic white silk blouse.
I hope you all have a fun Memorial Day weekend! I might take the holiday off here on the blog, but I haven’t quite decided yet. Either way, I’ll see you back here sometime next week!
Tell me: How would you wear a midi skirt?
