Winter is dragging on and I am beyond tired of all my cold weather clothing. Hope appeared to be lost and I was about to start freezing it out in my new spring purchases when I got a fashion jolt from my new fav fashion blog: Atlantic-Pacific. Now, let me take a tiny time-out to say that I really wish I looked like Ms. Blair Eadie all the time. She totally is my best-case-scenario fashion twin (in my head). Preppy, East-Coast but California cool...Yes, please!
Anyhow, Ms. Blair was wearing many full skirts in her posts (example: below) and I suddenly saw my new transition piece to get me through this dismal cold: a full midi-skirt (or two). Seriously: for snow it works with tights, booties and a tucked-in sweater and come warmer temps just switch into a striped T and some cute wedges. Ta-da! I know - I live in a fashion wasteland and only now have awakened to the 50's trend. Either way, I'm excited. A full skirt is fun, easy to wear, and at a mid length super flattering and comfy. Perfection.
If you haven't tried the trend yet, check out Boden's fab Grace skirt (on sale! and yes I know, the fact it's on Boden -and on sale already - really solidifies that I've been asleep at the switch on this trend) or Asos for a ton of fun and affordable options.
Also on my fashion horizon? A long, chiffon maxi skirt with a cropped moto jacket for spring events. Mmmmmm....coming soon!
