Oh my golly gosh!

This is one of the many vintage mid-calf skirts I have laying in the back of my closet. I got them all from my grandmothers, but I never seemed to be able wear them. Until now. This is one of the reasons I don't like throwing things away; I always seem to actually use them at some point. Gray is indeed one of my favorite colors, easy to layer with and just one of the colors I feel most comfortable in. This length is really hard to pull of though, but I think I did a pretty decent job.

I'm wearing a vintage mid-calf skirt and belt, Cubus white basic tee, Kmart knit sweater and tights, GoJane booties.

  8. I understand that feeling. I'm cleaning my wardrobe and I find something that I don't use in years, I'm desided to give it away, but I think "What If" or "I could use it.." That's why people like us need a huge wardrobe. HUGE!.
    Love the shape that the skirt gave you. The lenght can be difficult, but as you're tall(and good with heels), it works.

    Kisses!

  13. I think the secret to the below knee skirt is to wear heels, adds extra length to legs.
    Yeah.
    So that's my 2 cents.
    You look wonderful and cosy at the same time.
