Pocket Squares...

Yay!!! It's Thursday my loves. 
For some of us that means time to go back to work and for others, you lucky souls, it means that you have an extra, super duper extended weekend!!! 

I hope everyone enjoyed their time off on the 4th-eating lots of great cookout food and spending time with family and friends. I spent most of my day enjoying some uninterrupted quality time with my favorite dude so that was definitely the highlight of my day off. Since we've both been working extra hours at our jobs we kinda just lounged around. I didn't even get to capitalize on the chance to wear any of my 'Independence Day' inspired clothing items but oh well. This outfit post will have to suffice. 


 

If you all have been following then you are well aware of my reluctance to wear any type of skirt. I prefer short ones, if any, but definitely not midis. I'm not sure what it is about them. Because my body structure is so boxy-no hips, no definitive waistline-I just don't think that they are too flattering on me. However, I decided to give this one a try for no other reasons than these:

#1... It has pockets. I die when I find pocketed skirts and dresses.

#2... It's my absolute favorite shade of red


#3...I was able to pair these great accessories with it. Sidenote: I couldn't decide on which watch to wear, so I ended up wearing them both.


#4...These $8 platform wedges gave the look just the rustic, vintage feel I was going for.

#5...The squares of this shirt paired with this gold/silver mixed necklace made me ever so happy.

#6...This $.99 thrifted belt sealed the deal. It's such a statement piece!


Even with the pairing of some great accessories, I'm still on the fence about my feelings towards midi skirts.

How do you feel about midi skirts in general?
And what do you think of mine?

Thanks for reading.

  1. I like maxi skirts. Actually I adore them and would probably wear them even if they weren't in style. Your shoes are too cute and I love the shade of red. And pockets too? Yes!

  3. Yours works, I think, because you are wearing it with heels. Midi & maxi skirts with flats have to be worn with caution!

  9. I'm so jealous that you thrifted that skirt! Such a great find! I'm a little wary of the midi length too, but think it looks great when paired with heels are wedges like you did in this outfit!
