Daily Look: New Lengths

Blouse: Loft // Skirt: Asos // Shoes: Jessica Simpson via Marshall's // Ring: Madewell // Bracelet: H&M // Earrings: Target

I spend so much of my time this year on the floor with kindergarten students that my pencil skirts are going the way of the dinosaurs.  They're just too hard to crawl around in, and getting back up is even harder.  With this in mind, I decided to try out a full midi skirt.  I always love them when I see them in pictures, but every time I try one on I find them unflattering.  I'm pretty tall, but they cut off my legs so much that I feel like I look about six inches shorter.

I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and ordered this skirt from Asos, and while it certainly solved my teaching on the floor problem, I still just don't like the way I look.  I hoped that the mirror was lying to me, but looking at these pictures I think it's time to admit that I am just not a midi person.  I guess I should start looking for more work pants!

 What do you think of midi skirts?

I actually think it looks flattering on your! You're probably just not used to it. I avoid midis because they don't tend to work well with flats, which I live in. Plus, my legs aren't long like yours.
