top: urban outfitters, skirt: vintage from dutchdrift (and pointed out to me by darcy), shoes: swedish hasbeens
I finally sat down and started thinking about the two longer-length skirts I have in my closet right now. HOW THE FRICK AM I SUPPOSED TO WEAR THEM. The things you can wear with shorter skirts just don't work here! So today I present to you my two new skirts, both with a stripey top. Any other ideas, friends?
This white, ballerina/carrie bradshaw-esque skirt will probably be better in more cocktail party situations, as it feels so FANCY when I see it in person. We have plans to possibly attend a play at the Guthrie next week, perhaps that will be the perfect occasion!
And here's my more recent purchase, this olive green maxi skirt. It's a bit more casual and thus leaves me even more dumbstruck as to what I should do with it. I don't want a mini Michael Kors playing in my head screaming "It looks like she just stepped out of A FARM in the AMISH COUNTRY or something. Just put a BONNET on her head and you've practically got LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRARIE". So how to I make this baby work?
A note to all you Minnesota girls: PLEASE CHECK OUT PRIMP. It's on the corner of Selby & Dale in St. Paul and it's absolutely adorable. They get new items in every day and EVERYTHING is under $100. I've seen a few things in there that you can also find on Ruche.com... but they're cheaper at Primp!! So please, give me your styling tips! I could use them!
Also, I'm pretty sure I need to get lenses put in the glasses I'm wearing in these photos. I popped them on for fun and didn't want to take them off!
