“We were emerging from the period of war, of uniforms, of women-soldiers built like boxers. I drew women-flowers, soft shoulders, fine waists like liana and wide skirts like corolla.”
I have a love hate relationship with skirts. I want to love them but I hate styling them for the most part. You would think they would be as simple as a pair of pants. Somehow, it isn’t as basic as jeans and a cute top though! Despite the challenge I always face styling skirts, time and time again I find myself falling for skirts with unique cut or pattern like this one:
With this skirt I decided to keep it simple and just allow the asymmetrical cut and buttons take center stage. To do so, I turned to my tried and true favs- over the knee boots and a plain black turtleneck! The verdict? I still don’t feel like skirts are one hundred percent me. I do feel that I am closer to cracking “the code” to working such a classic item into my closet!
Regardless of how I feel about skirts, I do know that I LOVE these photos by Anni of Anni Powell Photography! If you are ever in the PNW you have to check her out for all your photography needs.
Question time: How do you feel about skirts? Do you struggle with them or are they a go to in your closet?

I struggle finding a good skirt. I usually go for A-line because it fits my shape better! This one looks so cute on you!
I personally love skirts because they flatter my tiny frame! You look great in that outfit x
I loveeee denim skirts – but that’s it! I’m not a big fan of skirts all-around, just cute button up denim ones I can dress up or down in the spring.

Skirts are a go to in my closet. I can’t get enough of them! This one looks good on you and I like how you paired it with the boots <3
You can totally pull off a skirt girl!! Your whole outfit is so fab! But I know exactly what you mean. I’ve purchased more than a few skirts recenetly and I love them, but I don’t feel as comfortable in them as I would wearing something else.
I think you are totally rockin this skirt though babe!! Love it with these over the knee boots!

I love skirts and own quite a few, but for some reason I always reach for the dress first, lol!!
Dresses are just SO easy!!! I’m definitely the same way.
I love skirts and I think you look fantastic in this one. Keep on adding them to your wardrobe 🙂

I’m with you- skirts are SO hard for me for some reason! I always love a good pleated skirt- those are the ones I always end up buying haha
