Guess what, guys. As of tomorrow, it’s FINALLY and officially Spring. (Although if you live in Southern California like me, you’re probably wondering if it’s actually the first day of summer). The most exciting part about spring, aside from the gorgeous flowers blooming, is that we can ditch our heavy winter clothes and break out our spring wardrobes. For me that means LOTS of midi skirts.
I couldn’t wait to break out my favorite midi skirt from Asos. The electric blue color is so rich and appropriate for spring, and the scuba material is lightweight and flouncy. I feel like such a lady in this ensemble, so I had to throw in the classy pearl lariat from Covet and Adorn and my favorite new bag: The Cora from Jordana Paige.
I can’t gush enough about this versatile bag. It is very cleverly designed with multiple pockets on the inside, including a separate pocket just for your tablet. Best part: the clutch on the front of the bag can be detached and worn separately as a clutch or wristlet. Now I wish ALL my bags had a datachable clutch.
Midi skirts are an absolute staple for any woman. You can wear them year round and they are super easy to style. If you’re hesitant to try this skirt silhouette, don’t be. The secret to making a midi skirt work is in the length. If you’re a shorty like me, you should get a midi skirt that hits just under the knee (tailor it for the most flattering fit). If you’re over 5’6, lucky you. Just about any midi skirts will look good on you. Just make sure the hem of the skirt falls above your ankles. Quick tip: If you have a midi skirt in a bold color (like my electric blue skirt), balance it with a neutral or muted top.
If you’re ready to take the midi skirt plunge, here are a few of my affordable favorites:
What are you lovely ladies wearing for the first day of spring? Are you as big a fan of midi skirts as me?
