Après the Midi


I don’t know about the rest of you, but the weather up here has been really weird this whole week. One minute there’s a chill, the next minute it’s pushing sixty-five. Such moody temperatures has made either-or pieces like the midi skirt a bit of an essential. I myself always though that being on the shorter side meant that the midi was absolutely off-limits. Thankfully, I’ve discovered that this is not the case; all it takes is the right length and shoe pairing.

Case point: This Topshop Petites leather midi skirt happens to be flattering because it hits just the right point on my leg: far enough below the knee as to qualify as a “midi”, but not so far down as to err into that awkward territory between midi and maxi. I played it safe, however, and paired the skirt with my favorite suede booties, just to give myself those extra few inches. And, as I said before, because the weather was finicky, I topped it off with a my favorite pale blue sweater (those elbow patches? I think yes). For a little bit of flavor, I wrapped a patterned scarf around my neck and made sure that my socks were peeking up out of my boots (it’s kind of been my “look” lately). I love playing with contrasting textures and materials, and especially adored the way the knit, leather, silk, and suede all came together to create one harmonious ensemble. All together, it was a perfectly hot ‘n cold outfit that rest assured I’ll be wearing rain or shine in the coming months.

Okay, maybe not rain. Suede boots plus moisture…it could get ugly. But you know what I mean.
