Last season, I was all into skinny jeans.
My Mad Hunting quest back then (before I even knew to call it Mad Hunting) was to own a pair of skinnies in every single color of the rainbow. Boy, that was a chore! Do you know how difficult it was to find the perfect pink pair? Sheesh!
Well, I’d done it and my closet has stacks of jeans coordinated by hue and pattern to prove my success. Of course, I’ve since stopped running ye ol’ treadmill regularly and I’ve snuck a can of soda or three indiscriminately which means those skinny jeans? Yeah, not so skinny on me anymore.
So until I get back down to fighting weight again – and it will happen; I just need a good swift kick – I’ve turned to wearing skater skirts. Why skater skirts? They’re forgiving to my pooch and flattering to my vertically challenged height. They’re alternately flippy and girly or edgy and kitschy depending on what I pair them with, and they’re easily adaptable to the schizophrenic temps we’ve got in SoCal (tights or leggings and boots if cool; bare legged and pumps if not).
Come to think of it then, when put that way, I may just adopt skater skirts as My Thing and donate all my skinnies. 😜
While I ponder that possibility, let me just link up with Caitlin @ Greater Than Rubies today. Her weekly RRR theme is A New Twist on an Old Favorite, and even though skater skirts are a new fave, I’ve done so many iterations of it (here, here and here, for example) that I can safely say it’s been a true remix of my wardrobe. Pairing it up today with a cropped jacket and wearing said jacket as a top (I mean, wouldn’t you? Look at that fab portrait collar!) is just one of the many ways you can style the very versatile skater skirt.
Yeah, I think I’m hooked.
