It was a red sky this morning~ "sailors take warning".... but we had a beautiful day all day!
My outfit thinking today was I wanted to wear something I hadn't worn in a while. Hiding in my closet was this skirt, and I wondered why I hadn't worn it; as soon as I put it on I knew! It is a little too long. The it all came back to me. I had debated taking up the hem, but knew it would take away from the flowing lines of the skirt and I decided against it.
Because of this longer length, I would have to wear boots with it. My legs are thin, so any skirt that is more than an inch below my knees, I have to wear boots to balance my shape out. I know this is different for everyone--some women's perfect length is right at the beginning of the calf; about 3 inches below the knee.
So I hauled out my new boots. I have another pair of cowboy boots that I used to wear with this skirt, but I needed a change!
So, where's the funk today, Paula, you ask? I had to relegate it to my accessories--my earrings! I made sure I made them HONKING BIG.
What length is perfect for you?
