Last month I had a sweet reunion with Angie as a momma! at the cafe that finally opened like the day after I moved. We ordered giant fancy coffee, she brought her camera, I got baby boy snuggles. It was a wonderful heart-filling morning.
Not so sure I will have the same tendency in the warmer months of the Pacific Northwest, although I have always pushed the limit a tinsy bit on hem lines.
Enter this skirt, north meets south...literally and figuratively.
Here's why it's rad and if you're gonna:
There better be ruching. Because if your going to do a mini, it's your butts best friend.
Adding high-low symmetry gives a nod toward dare to wear short, but the long adds sophistication and interest.
There is a time for heels and minis, but to keep it chic and effortless, try flats, or if you gotta have some height - this seasons platforms.
