Work Wear: Midi Skirt & Sweater

Happy Monday!

This weekend definitely felt short.  I could have used an extra day.

I have a love for midi skirts that even I cannot explain.  A few years ago, I was in Europe visiting family and had purchased a few nautical midi skirts, however, no one was wearing them.  They were more grandma style than the style of someone in their 20s.  I maybe wore them a few times before I stored them away in my closet.  During one of my many moves in the last 3 years, I decided to get rid of the skirts.  I am kicking myself for that little move.  This capelet was part of that purchase, and I was determined to hold on to it.  Good thing I at least held on to one thing.

I bought the skirt from Zara and it fits true to size.  When you look at the fabric, it looks as though it would be heavy, however, it is very light.  I paired the skirt with a blue sweater from J Crew (also styled here) and my blue suede heels.

Midi skirts can be tricky to style.  If you do it wrong you could end up looking a bit frumpy.  If you are short, I would suggest wearing them with heels and try not to get one that hits too low.  You run the chance of making your legs look shorter.
