Wardrobe Staple; Denim Skirt





Almost every season it seems, I am searching for a denim skirt.   



I found this one the other day at Marshall's; it's my favorite shape, "A" line & above the knee.  AND it doesn't have a front fly, which tends to exaggerate my menopausal belly.  (Does anyone else have this problem?)



I did sew a small strip of velco in between the top buttons, so it doesn't gap.



Can you tell I was taking these pics with my Iphone???

  4. I enjoy all the blues hues and a good denim skirt is always on season and it can be very versatile.

  5. I had a tummy even before menopause, so it is good to have sleeker line. What a good tip about putting velcro between the buttons! It seems so obvious now, but I never thought of it before!

  6. I prefer the zip-front to buttons up the front. I don't like it when I sit down and the skirt is open. My favorite denim skirt is from Ann Klien, is waistband-less and has a side zip.

    I find that bike shorts or a coulotte-slip helps with the zip-front skirt, keeps everything slippery.

  7. Love the skirt!! i know I searched high and low for one that did NOT have a "jeans" top and wasn't super heavy. Finally found one at the thrift and wore it earlier this week.
    I'd still love to find a boho-gypsy type in a light denim!

  8. Great skirt and I also love your hair in the last photo. I have one denim skirt, which I don't wear very often. Your post has inspired me to pull it out of the closet.

  10. Perfect skirt! I love Marshalls. As much as I thrift, once in a while I search for the perfect re-mixing item, usually a blouse or jacket, at Marshalls. Love all the blues!

  11. I have a short torso, too, so zips and buttons up the front accentuate the puddle of fat that lives on my abdomen. Side zips rule.
