Until that happens, I'm going to take advantage of the warmer weather and keep wearing my lighter, summer pieces into fall. I find that sticking with the pieces that are longer, but still light are perfect for those days that go from 80 degrees to 65 degrees in a few short hours. This outfit in particular is one of my favorites because of the brightly colored skirt. Ain't nothing better for fixing a gloomy day or a gloomy mood than some bright colors. It's the little things, you know?
I am putting up the outfit details, but all of these items are pretty old or off a clearance rack because I have no money. You have been warned:
Shirt - H&M (forever ago)
Skirt - ASOS (last summer)
Wedges - Akira Chicago (last summer)
Necklace - DIY (tutorial here!)
It's not a secret that I'm a midi skirt fiend. I don't have that many (maybe 6), but that's only because I use restraint when shopping not to buy every single one I see. Now, the question is why do I love midi skirts? This is one that baffles me as well, because, for the most part, I think they make me look totally frumpy. I buy one. I put it on. And I think "librarian". Well, ladies and gents, I think the only obvious answer here is that I enjoy looking like a librarian. Did I miss my one true calling?
Anyway, I do love midi skirts. Especially flowy ones, because there's nothing like a long flowing skirt on a dreary day to make you feel 1.) like a lady and 2.) like your skirt is not going to blow up over your ears. I know they're not for everyone. I can't even image how they make anyone shorter that 5'8" feel, but if you feel you can rock it then I totally recommend them!
Happy pre-fall everyone!
