TO - 01/16 - on a rainy day… recreating the midi-skirt moment…

Last year, when I was doing an inventory of some clothes which hadn’t been wore for ages and seeing if there were some I could recycle, I found this navy blue skirt that I liked, but I was in doubt about its length, because it’s almost an ankle length. I didn’t wish to cut it, but I didn’t know if it was longer that it should be. So I kept it for “better days”.
Since current hemline options include more skirts that descend to the calf and below, I decided to try it today.
What do you think?

It was such a rainy day today…

black oxford shoes - from mainland through a local store
bordeaux tights - Calzedonia
navy blue long skirt - from my boxes
blue turtleneck - local store
red cardigan - Mango
red and black plaid coat with faux fur collar - Tally Weijl
bracelet - gift from Hubby (Tie Rack)
pearls necklace - mainland store
cocktail ring - gift from Hubby
perfume - Noa from Cacharel


  1. I like it. I haven't seen you in a skirt this length yet, I don't think. You can wear any length!

  2. You look like such a lady! I love it. I want a long wool plaid skirt exactly like the one you have on but printed. I say stick with it!

  3. Hi there-just perfect for the cooler weather and looks lovely with your jacket too!

  4. Hey darling!
    I'm sorry for the lack of comments. I have just been sick in bed for the last couple of days. THank you so much for all the comments that you left. I love reading them, you know? :)
    Don't worry about the self confidence crisis. WE all go through it. IN some people it's more obvious, than others, but we all do. So, it's only natural, and it will pass...
    You are a gorgeous woman with such a big heart and beautiful soul. I love you very much darling!

  5. You were it well but I much prefer you in shorter skirts, but then I'm not a fan of longer skirts much anyway - so ignore me!!

  6. i really like that red cradigan with the blue turtleneck!
