A Dose of Blush and Gray

I know it’s been a while, but I think I’ll save the dramatic tale of my life lately for another post. Thanks to these lovely photos from Callie¬†though, I feel like I’m coming back with a bang! This outfit was definitely one of my favorites this spring. When the midi trend started popping up, I thought there was no way it would work for me. Although midi skirts look totally glamorous and sophisticated on a multitude of bloggers, the fact that I don’t wear heels seemed to count me out.

A skirt that awkwardly cuts me off mid-calf without the lengthening effect of heels? No thanks.

Then I saw this outfit from Ladies in Navy¬†and knew I had to make myself an ethereal, ballerina-inspired skirt. And you know what? I love it and all it’s midi-length awkwardness, especially when paired with an equally ballet-esque blush tank. You’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of this skirt throughout the summer. It might even be worth digging out the heels for!
