Over the years I seem to have gathered quite the collection of skirts. Since I've pretty much given up on finding any shorts that look remotely acceptable on me (except one denim pair), the only other option for summer bottoms has become skirts. Bright colors, pencil styles, and pleated varieties all hang together in my closet, but only a few fall into the mini category. This skirt is the first one I've styled that unapologetically grazes well above my knees and offers a feminine (slightly coy) flip with every step. The color-blocked pattern is what drew me in originally and I can already see this working with a loose knit sweater and low heeled ankle boots in the fall. However, during this extreme heat I can fully embrace the skirt's skin baring qualities and pair it with a simple tank and sleek sandals. For an afternoon iced coffee run, the outfit and accompanying accessories made me feel a little much more feminine than my standard jean shorts ever could.
