Skirts Go Long

The lovely spring weather this weekend inspired me to take my latest vintage floral-print Liberty skirt for a spin. The hemline falls mid-calf, but I was emboldened by all of the longer skirt styles featured in the Spring/Summer 2011 ready-to-wear collections and by a recent New York Times slideshow about the new length. They key with mid-calf hemlines is always getting the proportion right. you can get away with flats with a maxi skirt, but this length needs a bit of a heel. So I paired it up with my green suede F-Troop wedgies. Just thought I’d share.
