Short and Sweet?

Skirt? h&m (similar here) Sweater? Thrifted Wool blazer? Thrifted Scarf? Joe Fresh (similar here)
Shoes? Boutique 9, thrifted (similar here) Bracelets? Thrifted and from The Ex

I am trying to make a more conscious effort to only buy clothes that will fit into my wardrobe and last for years. Sometimes I fail horribly at that effort. Like that time I went to h&m and I saw this skirt and bought it without even trying it on. Tsk tsk. Turns out the skirt is a little short even by my low (short?) standards... I figured that I could still wear it as long as my sweater was slouchy and my tights were opaque. But the tights that appeared opaque at 6 a.m. as I scrounged through my drawers were actually quite sheer once the daylight arrives.
This is as scandalous as I get... well, except for that one time I shoplifted chapstick in Gr. 9...

haha chapstick!
tsk tsk is right.
You have admitted your wrong doing, and that's always a step in the right direction =]

That skirt is gorgeous! I think it was still a wise purchase. It will look great with a white tee in the summer. I definitely think you will be able to get a lot of wear out of it, and since its from H&M, I know you didn't spend an arm and a leg :)

just send me the skirt, it will probably go all the way down to my knees.

Did you wear this to church? does the skirt disappear when you sit down? I would suggest not taking public transportation in it. Hoooooochie.

Ok I'm done. I love your hoochness.

Absolutely love this outfit! The print on the skirt and that cute fluffy scarf in particular.

Laura said...

I'm liking it! I don't think that you look scandalous at all. Now, maybe if you ditched the tights, went with a shirt that plunged to your belly button, then yes. But this? No way!

I love this outfit, and love this skirt!! It's adorable! But I definitely know the feeling of wearing something you know is just a touch too short... you just end up feeling kind of awkward all day, but I can promise you you looked cute cute cute! I always combat too-short skirts with ballet flats... balances things out and makes me feel less scandalous somehow!

I love your outfit. I saw a similar skirt in an Instyle ad recently and have been dying to see a version on the blogosphere. You make me want to run out to H&M (or, more accurately, get in my car and drive an hour and a half to H&M). Too bad it's so short. I'm on the taller side so maybe it wouldn't work. I'll just keep admiring it on you then.

I love the print of your skirt!
