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?

    I’m all about midi skirts this year…I just added another one to my closet last weekend and the weather just got warm enough for them so I’m getting pretty excited!

    • Yay- isn’t it nice when the weather cooperates? :)

  • Midi has long been my favorite length for skirts. Lately I’m loving the high waisted options and just tucking in a cute blouse or t-shirt. Happy Memorial Day weekend Nnenna!

    • Love the sound of that- definitely an outfit I’ll have to try once I find the right skirt :)

  • Jenmarie

    Have you tried taking the skirt to get dry cleaned? You never know, they might be able to get it out! I love so many of the looks you posted. The super light and flowy midis are probably my favorite.

    • No, I have not tried that yet, but I should! That’s why I haven’t gotten rid of it yet- I’m hoping that someday it can be fixed. Now I’m not sure where I’ve tucked it away though…

  • My first midi skirt was thrifted and I was likewise nervous about “pulling it off.” But, I have come to be obsessed with the midi skirt and I don’t think it will go away from my closet! It’s actually more flattering than I thought (on most people in fact!) as long as you find the right proportion for your body type, of course. I like your tips on styling the skirt. =)

    • My first maxi skirt was thrifted! It was like $3 and it’s the prettiest coral color- I still have it :) Yes, with all the trends I’m nervous about “pulling off,” I’ve realized it’s just about making it work for yourself specifically and tweaking it to fit your style.

  • Ah, midi skirts! Hard to believe, but they are tricky to pull off, but I love them. I think they look great with high heels and a leather jacket. Have a great weekend!

    • Agreed- a midi skirt + leather jacket looks so good. You’re right- sometimes it can be tricky to fit the right length!

  • I’ve been trying to find a midi skirt for my height! I like the ideas (especially that leopard goes with everything, because it totally does). I’d go for a simple tshirt but with a bit of bling on top. Also you could totally wear midi skirts with the new birkenstock trend right now!

    • A simple tee with a bit of bling on top sounds perfect- thanks for the idea. Now I just need to find one that I like!

    I don’t know if I’m turning into a prude as I get older, but I LOVE these types of skirts now! It doesn’t help that everywhere I shop though, they’re either booty short or midi. So I’ll gladly take the midi :)

    • I know exactly what you mean! I’m finding it so hard to find skirts of decent length. Personally I prefer skirts right above the knee since I’m on the shorter side, but 90% of stuff I see is super short! I’m keeping my eye out for skirts like the one I’m wearing in today’s post, as well as a midi skirt or two for my closet :)

  • so many pretty options and stylish bloggers!
    that is so sad about your skirt, nothing worse than when a beloved piece gets ruined.

    • Yes indeed- the part that bothers me most is that I don’t even know how it happened!

  • love them! any colour, any fabric, they are so good!

    • Yay! Thanks for coming by Corina! :)
