Midi Skirts

I'm so late to the game, per usual, but I've been really eyeing a bunch of mid-length skirts. I love maxi skirts, but I struggle to pull off long dresses and skirts. (Plus, I'm clumsy... and long skirts + high heels would be asking for trouble...)

When I was looking for dresses for Henley (they have to be "tea length"), all I could find in hemlines that were past the knees was– true story– this one weird dress with watercolored cats on it. Now it seems like this midi-length is so in. I started trying on a few skirts in various stores after being inspired by photos online... obsessed. (The one trick for me is that some skirts have too much fabric, so be on the lookout for that!)


I just love how feminine they are; dainty, but not delicate.

  2. I found a black midi at Nordstrom for less than $40 so I scooped it up faster than my husband could tell me 'no.' I love this trend!

  9. That green midi is beyond amazing. I am completely and utterly in love. Love the ones you found for under $100. Can't wait to give them a try.

  12. I love the look on other people but at 5'3 I'm not so sure I could pull one off without a pair of 4 inch heels!

  14. I must be old...I do not love this trend. It cuts people off and makes people look shorter than they are. Unless your super tall I don't think it works. Reminds of the late 70's/early 80's working girl. Think the girls in the movie '9-5'!

  16. I feel like it would be so hard to pull it off...unless it's a very flowy skirt & I can wear some boots with it. Other than that, I'm super short.

  17. I love the trend of midi skirts, I would love to wear them but they would look so long on me since I am so petite. I love that lace one.

    1. I'm short too and have lots of midi skirts. Mini skirts not really being a good look when dealing with patients. Find a decent tailor-makes all the difference.

  22. Cute blog! Love how classic these skirts are! One can either buy these or copy with vintage (that's ironic, I know)! ~ Katherine www.breakfastatgeminis.com
