Daily: Midi Skirt

You know those trends that you’re afraid might end up being terrible but you want to try them anyway? Sometimes they end up being totally wearable, like those pale nudes that are big for spring but might wash you out, or those Ugg boots that Paris Hilton wore 10 years ago. Oh, wait. The Ugg Boot trend was never okay and ended up not being wearable by anybody…even Paris Hilton. Here’s the breakdown:

Tee: Gap
Skirt: WalMart
Kitten Heels: Garage sale (Steve Madden)
Bag: Garage sale
Necklaces: American Eagle/Gap
Nail Polish: Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Pro in Sunset OrangeĀ 

Enter the midi skirt: the spring trend that might end up being terrible because the length of the skirt might cut off your leg-line, resulting in stumpy-looking legs that not even a pair of 5-inch heels can redeem. This is one of two midi skirts that I just happened to have in my closet from seven years ago. Yes, seven. I caved and decided to give my midi skirt a try, and it ended up being surprisingly comfortable. You get the modesty of a maxi skirt without completely hiding your legs and your shoes. This trend’s a keeper.

Like my “new” bag? I bought it at a garage sale this weekend. Yes, Caitlin’s garage saling season has officially begun!
