I'll have you know I choked on my glass of merlot as I read this.
Cuz whenever too old happens to be, it's not in the near future for either of us, IMO.
You all know, having looked at my photos, that the mini is not a trauma for me. I'm on the short side so I'm always looking for any excuse to seem longer. Not to mention, from years of walking miles a day and doing googobs of yoga, my gams are among my better features.
Bronwyn is lovely, tall and slim in that way that everyone would like to be slim, so I'm voting for a conversion to the mini-side. Join me B, by getting comfortable with the whole look by
- Starting off long(ish) - make it only a couple of inches above the knee; and
- Staying in the 'hood - rent a video, hit the coffee shop, grocery shop wearing a short skirt, till you're so comfortable you can take 'em to work.
Here are a couple of ways to wear the look:
Here's a billowy parachute skirt with over the knee socks in maroon
Skirt - M0851, Socks - AA, Sweater - Mexx, Bodysuit - H&M, Shoes - 9West
Belt - also new, thrifted ($16.00), Shoes - 9West
I can just tell I'm gonna be wearing the second outfit all summer long. It's got pockets and it is voluminously cool for the hot weather.
Neither of these looks is attention-seeking short. Both are comfortable. So, Bronwyn, pls. give it a go. You are just the perfect age to rock this look.
Love, K xo
