Oh Midi Oh My

New Look, Topshop, Thakoon, Marc Jacobs
As you could tell from this post earlier in the week I am super hot for midi's right now! They can be so feminine and refined when paired with a classic pair of heels and a sweater OR edgy and funky when paired with a tee and some lace up boots....Very versatile indeed. These are 4 of my faves ranging from reasonably priced to down right breaking the bizz-ank!

And.......
The winner of the Studded Bracelet giveaway from Farfetch is Kara from Sprinkles in Springs!  Congrats girl!

Love the midi look...it looks best on the tall and willowy though.
Too much volume and too small of stature don't always work out with the midi.
Sigh.

Katelyn said...

i love the first one and the last one))

Lisa said...

i heart all of these midi's.. i just wish i didn't look like a short tree stump in this trend.. hahaha

Ohhh no! My last comment didn't come through :( Anyway, what I was saying that it can be hard wearing a midi-skirt without making it look granny... don't you think? Nevertheless, when combined well, it's an amazingly strong item in an outfit!

wonderful skirts <3 love the pink one<3 such a pretty color!!

Laura said...

Totally with you on loving this trend!! But I hadn't thought to pair it with a t-shirt and boots. I'm definitely going to try that out! Thanks for the inspiration.

I am majorly crushing on the Thakoon and MJ midis. But the price tags make me sad.

Kara said...

Midis are so cute, want to try one out and see if it's good on me. And THANK YOU soo much for the bracelet! That saves me some $$ because I really wanted it! :)

Midi's absolutely - but with heels is the trick. Even if they're an inch. So much better than flats I think.

RosaLovesDC said...

Love the Thakoon midi! I can see you rocking any of these skirts.

Kelly said...

I am in love with Midis right now. These are such great finds!

Leah said...

I'm afraid of the Midi! I feel like it would cut my already short legs off in a weird spot and make them look stubby.

Kate said...

I am SO inlove with this trend. I bought 6 skirts for spring!!

Officially following! Love for you to check out my blog.

When I saw that Midi skirts were coming back in I first thought that everyone was crazy. But now, I've seen them styled in so many different ways and I'm hooked!

Kristin said...

That first one speaks to me, although I'm a bit afraid to try out a midi. I'll rock a maxi all day long...but I'm afraid the midi would make me look stumpy. Le sigh.

Josie said...

I'm too short for them -- it's super unfortunate -- but I think they're so pretty and ladylike for spring. I love that Marc Jacobs one!

Hi there, I have a question, how did you make your blog so wide, I'm trying it for weeks but I can't find out how.. xox naomi

Polly said...

I used to do Midi's but I think they make me look so short, thinking I can probably cope with it though.

Britt+Whit said...

All great picks! I don't know which one I like the best. Maybe the Thakoon because I just love that color!

XOXO,
