Skirting the Issue


Confession; I fell in love with this light rinse, long denim skirt while shopping for my kids at a children's store. This was in the tween section, and I pounced. Forced to wear floor sweeping length skirts in my very religious high school and Israeli seminary, I previously associated long skirts with anything but fashion. That's really not the case though. A long, relaxed skirt can be so effortlessly sexy. It's another way to interpret the classic denim bottom. The light wash and thin fabric ease up any heaviness. This skirt would look so classy with a white button down, a bodysuit, or a cropped tee like I did here. Denim and white are like peanut butter and jelly; always a yummy pairing. This old J Crew rope belt was the perfect boho chic accessory. All the pieces here are light and airy. A funky tote bag holds all summer essentials. With nice weather, if I can, I like to shlep a book and blanket for impromptu park reading. Some mismatched layered necklaces add just the right stylish detailing. Take this look from day to night by adding a boyfriend blazer with pushed up sleeves. Rock various lengths this summer, and stretch out your wardrobe with new options.
