the "midi" skirt

Not sure "midi skirt" is what I would call this. I know, I know... it's what they're called.
To me, I'd say they remind me more of an updated poodle skirt.


Truly, nothing is new.  But I think you can definitely put a modern spin on these classic-shaped skirts with a fun tee and some bold accessories.


Oh, and leopard pumps never hurt. ;)


 Also, in case you were wondering, this skirt twirls beautifully. I'm a twirler.

Something hilarious to add...   We all know that lots of guys just don't "get" a lot of outfits. Sure, Brad will always say, "You look beautiful."  So sweet.  But seriously, it's hard to get him to comment or offer opinions on specific clothing choices of mine, because he always says that I've never looked bad to him in anything.
...Again, precious.   But this skirt got his attention. Maybe it was the "wifey" shirt, who knows. But he said more than once that he wanted me to wear this outfit again soon. He really liked it and wanted me to know it, which was hilarious. ...And sweet and precious. Guys...

  3. Really cute! I don't really know if I can find one that'll look good on me because I'm really short and maxi skirts and midi skirts never hit at the right length!

  5. This is beautiful. Women of the poodle skirt era always looked so classy and sexy, without ever being trashy. I don't think that one could ever look trashy in a poodle skirt.

  11. I LOVE this outfit. Such a summery and dare I say casual vibe? It's not really casual casual.. dressed up casual is what I'll call it. It looks GOOD. I would not be able to pull off a midi skirt.. I'm only 5"4 so I feel like it would drown me

  26. This outfit is amazing but I think you can pull it off better than anyone. There is no way I would look that cute!

  27. The skirt is so cute and classic! Although I'm not sure if it would look right on me, because I'm 5'3" so a lot of midi-style skirts tend to cut me off and make my legs look really short.
