So you may have seen some of the these photos already; but at Short Presents we are all about recycling. I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about this little skirt for a minute. I am head over heels in love, and not because it’s super nautical and cute, but because I don’t think I’ve ever been so comfortable. Which is saying a lot because I will tell you that I ate an enormous amount of sushi the night these photos were taken.
For evidence see this post:
Initially I wasn’t sure about the skirt, I could hear Stacy London in my head screaming “YOU DON”T WEAR HORIZONTAL STRIPES ACROSS YOUR MIDDLE!”. Since I had like 20 minutes to spare for shopping, I was shopping alone, and so I didn’t even have an honest friend to be like “OH No No No!!” I asked the sales associate, she has the coolest bangs, so I totally trusted her fashion sense, and bought the skirt.
Now there are some things you should know about wearing a skirt like this:
(a) don’t buy it too tight, the stripes will be a wonky and make your butt look lopsided (not cute).
(b) you shouldn’t wear a flat shoe, you need something to bring you up off the ground even just a little.
(c) don’t over do it with accessories, the skirt is bold, so make sure everything else is simple.
(d) wear a necklace or something in your ears to help bring the eyes up, so that the focus isn’t only the skirt.
