I've kind of had my eye on some of the longer skirts for spring (like Elisabeth's--so pretty), but felt unsure if they would actually work on me. Then I stumbled upon this little gem at Salvation Army and thought I could use it as a test subject for a midi-skirt length. I paired it with my biggest shoes (Elaine, how do you walk more than a few blocks in these? I need practice!) to balance out the below-the-knee length but then ended up wearing the skirt most of the weekend with short boots. What do you think of the length? I'm still open to hemming it a bit above the knee, but for now, I kind of love the unexpected longer length--less scandalous for bike-riding, nothing sticks to the seat you're sitting on in warmer weather, and I feel like I'm kind of on top of the trends (for once), even if it only put me back $2.19.
