Midi Skirts: The 50s Silhouette

It seems that midi skirts are coming back this spring!

I've been seeing an increase of them on my Pinterest feed. Personally, I love this trend. I have always adored the fit and flare trend from the '50s. As someone who isn't in love with mini-skirts (worrying about them riding up) or maxi skirts (I look like I'm three feet tall!), I love that midis are now something you can wear without looking like an old lady. They're a sophisticated, fun skirt and dress length that I'm know I'll be wearing as the weather warms up.

Spring Time Happiness

Long time, no see! Sorry about the leave of absence. I came out of hibernation for the best (fashion) season of the year: SPRING!

Personally, I'm a sucker for spring clothes; the florals, the pastels, all of it. I feel like I can finally shed away the dark colors and heavy layers to keep warm in winter to final come out and see the sun.

Here in upstate New York, however, an April spring day can range anywhere from 80 degrees to the 40 degree weather we had today. With all that variation, it can be difficult to not go back into winter habits (heavy sweaters, thick scarfs). 

The best way to remedy this is to use bright colors and patterns, especially when it's colder. If you're in for a chilly spring day, go with a light washed jean and a light knit pullover. Better yet, ditch the sweater and pair a bright colored a spring cute top.
