A Taste of Spring

skirt, sunnies, & belt: goodwill, heels: thrift town, shirt: target, necklace: my mom's
Although if you ask anyone at my highschool they will disagree with me, but, long skirts are the way to go. There are times and places for short skirts, but I am personally way more attracted to the silhouette of a longer skirt. I know I've talked about this before, but I just can't get enough of them right now. For a beautiful example, see Kate Maggie of Postcards From's latest post. I adore her skirt! It comes right below the knee like mine, and she just looks darling.

I know that I'm being so ironic, right! Wearing a rather short skirt on Monday, and a rather long one today. What can I say - I'm a wild child.

Lijah found these sunglasses at Goodwill for me when we were doing a little thrifting (I found him an awesome blazer with elbow patches!). I thought that it was about time that I get some different sunglasses, as much as I love my faithful Raybans. It's good to switch it up here and there! These are kinda big, but I'm actually quite fond of them.

One last thing! Remember my last post? It was rainy and windy? Well today it was in the 60s! It was amazing! For the first time, I actually went bare leg! A perfect taste of spring! I can't wait. X

  1. This outfit is adorable. My favorite skirt length is *just* above the knee.. a couple inches max. To me, longer skirts (that aren't maxis) bring me down because of my height. But it looks wonderful on you.

    I'm so jealous of all the green in your pictures! Who cares about the temps with all that lush grass? It's still a snowy wasteland where I live.

  4. I definitely agree with you on the whole long-skirt thing. I think it's a trend that's starting to come back.

    Also, I'm so confused. I thought your boyfriends name was Derek?

  11. Girl, you always look so cool and untouchable.

    I'm usually more partial to short skirts but I have been bookmarking midi skirts lately. I'm still hesitant to try them for fear of looking like a shorty :\

Very unfortunate, but anyway, here's my comment :D

  20. Long skirts ARE the way to go. They're my favorite!!!! I always loved them longer even when I wasn't so into modesty like I am now. They're comfortable and beautiful!! I love the design on yours!!!
