Full Skirtedness


A belated greetings on this monday afternoon. I have been crouching inside the house like a coiled spring, waiting to get outside and shoot this look in the few minutes of respite from the rain that we have been getting today. I just barely made it.

Fuller skirts have had a presence for a few seasons now, but I have been sort of approaching the situation with caution. It's not that I don't like the look, but the midi-length fuller skirts that are out there right now seem to look so lovely on other people, but when I try them on,  I just feel that it looks a bit....I don't know...Sister Wife.

I liked this one because although it is full, it is not overly so (I don't really need any extra volume, nor do I particularly want it), and the length hits just to the kneecap, so it's slightly less awkward than a midi-length skirt can be.  It's super-comfy, and has a bit of a retro vibe to it, what with the sheer windowpane material overlay. I decided to go with this vibe and style it with my cat eye glasses, pearls, and just red lipstick for makeup. Done. Easy. Incidentally, this skirt is on sale right now. There is a matching top, but I couldn't find my size. Isn't that always the way...

  2. Hi thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment earlier! Appreciate it and love your mature, stylish ensemble here. Red lips just add that extra vibe! Best drom Germany where it has been raining cats and dogs all week. But we are still over the moon after winning last night at World Cup. Sabina @ Oceanblue Style

  3. I think you nailed it - and I think you're right. It's all about the length. There's about a 3-5" gap between Ahhh and Amish ;-)

  4. I like it. You did good. The cool factor of transparent layering couldn't be dowdy. Excellent treatment, and great on your fabulous long, lovely frame.

  5. Perfection! And I love the idea of wearing eyeglasses that work with a look. Tres chic.
