I’m really sad that skirt season is almost over. East coast fall weather is just too chilly, even with leggings, to rock skirts in. Over the summer, I fell in love with high waisted skirts. I love high waisted skirts for two reasons:
1. they keep all the extra tummy tucked in nicely (yay I can keep eating ice cream!)
2. they make child-bearing hips look smaller and thus showcase a more flattering figure
I tried to squeeze in one last skirt before it gets too chilly out. Sadly, I didn’t actually make it out of my apartment in this outfit because the weather network was calling for rain and I am not down with running outside in a skirt. I thought I would share the ensemble anyway.
(ok, so my roommate was rushing me to get my shoes on but I couldn’t find a pair of socks before she took the photo. Since I knew I wasn’t leaving the house like this, I quickly put my shoes on for the sake of taking photos. Trust in the fact that I didn’t leave the apartment without socks. ;))
I own three high waisted skirts and two of them are nautical-styled. This one is especially my favorite because of the buttons on the front as well as the fact that it’s made from a jersey knit. Nothing says comfort like jersey knit! The skirt also has pockets which are really handy.
My newest obsession? Booties. These are my one and only pair and I love them to pieces. I usually don’t fair well in any footwear with a heel (my clumsy nature makes it incredibly hard to walk on any flat surface with a heel more than 0 inches. haha) but these boots are surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in. The only downside to wearing these is the fact that I now tower over a lot of people. I used to think that being tall was liberating but sometimes being too tall is a bad thing.
