Midi Moment

May 11, 2015

I loved this J.Crew skirt the second I saw it. Truth be told, I’ve been on a little bit of a midi skirt kick (here, here, and here). When the weather starts to get warm, I’m all like “where are my skirts and dresses at?!” Midi skirts are so great because they don’t leave you all worried about showing too much thigh. And they are comfortable. Back to this J.Crew one. I mean, it’s a midi, it’s stripes, it’s neutral colors, and it has an elastic waistband (can I get an amen?). I stalked it until it went on sale (which it still is) and snapped it up. My mom actually helped me track it down in-store when it sold out online (it’s back now) because that’s what family is for right? Apparently, I am on a kick with parenthesis today.

In case you haven’t noticed, I am having a lot of fun with my sunglasses lately. I don’t mean to be pushy or anything (okay, maybe I do), but if you haven’t signed up for Ditto’s Endless Eyewear Program yet, you really should. I didn’t realize it would be so awesome to swap out designer sunglasses any time I wanted! Currently, I have a funky colored Ray-Ban pair perfect for the beach.

    We are way too in love with this look. Your skirt is seriously so cute and you’re kind of making us fall more in love with midi skirts. And you’re kind of selling us on the sunglasses. We’re in love with yours but are afraid we’d get too attached to all the pairs haha

    This skirt is so perfect. I’ve always been a little nervous to try midi skirts, but I’m definitely intrigued. I love the stripes on this one and it flows so nicely. Thanks for sharing the bit about sunglasses rental – SUCH a cool idea!
