A Little Hippie Dip


When I went in my closet this morning, I was thinking fun--short skirt, tights, cute sweater.  Alas, no short skirt spoke to me.  Surprisingly, what did speak to me was this  long Ralph Lauren silk skirt.


better photo, weird pose
 I ended up a little hippy-dippy with this long, flowey skirt--sort of the other end of the style spectrum, right Steph?  As much as I don't like long skirts, I love this skirt,  maybe because this one is so girly and swirly.  (I can see you swirling in it now, Serene!)

boots~Aldo
 The sweater?  100% merino wool, soooo old- I used to feel big in it--now I feel small!  Funny how that happens....

I did honking big hoops for the earrings; true to this hippy style.  And did  I mention it was freezing, freezing cold today?  Hence, finally, the boots.

Who likes long skirts?

  1. I'm asking myself, "Why is she not SWIRLING?!" This is just a beautiful skirt and it looks lovely on you! I'm not used to seeing you in a long skirt, but it suits you as well as the short ones. Fabulous! Now go swirl girl! ~Serene

  3. Me! Me! I love long skirts sooo much. I remember seeing this skirt in the stores a couple of years ago and swooning over it (not over the price, though, which was ridiculously high).

    You look awesome in this, Paula!

  4. Paula, This skirt is gorgeous...I wish I could touch it...the fabric is beautiful. It is more my length and according to the new Harper's Bazaar...the longer length in skirts is in for spring!!

    Glad to see they are coming back for spring
    I love long skirts and boots. Best way to wear them in my opinion

  6. I love me some hippy-dippy, but it's funny, that's not the vibe I'm getting from this outfit. I think Sacramento's word choice -- grand -- is right on! It has to be the rich colors of that skirt that give it a more elegant flavor. Quite lovely.

  7. You look so great and so classic. I don't think it's hippy dippy at all!!

  8. Well you know I like a long skirt! I love the pattern in this and styled a bit differently, you could almost call Lauren, McQueen!

  9. Serene~I have to get the swirl down with the camera...I will try! I want to swirl~
    Sacramento~I know YOU love a long skirt!
    Sheila~I got it for a steal, and it has really been a great staple--even though I really don't like long skirts--truth be told!
    Pam, it is about the touch with this skirt. I don't think I'll be on board with the long skirts for spring--sort of ruins my best feature!
    Silvergirl~I used to wear them a lot more, but they really are a pain at work--I'm always driving my chair over them! And I agree, the best way to wear them is with boots.
    Anne~you are right, it really dosen't look hippie, I just feel that way.
    Joy~thanks its the memory of the long skirts in my hippie days.
    Terri~lol, I know I could funk it up. I do know you love a long skirt--but I love seeing your legs too! A good balance of both, I think.
