Closet Ultimatum #4 - Purple Skirt



 

This skirt was part of my Gap shopping spree which led to my shopping ban at the beginning of the year.  I was under the influence of my 4 adorable nieces, so I really can't be held responsible for the decisions I was making that day.  I mean, they really wanted me to buy the purple skirt!  What was I supposed to do?  I wore it 4 times between January and April (here, here, here, and here), but haven't worn it since then, which is why it was included in my ultimatum pile.  This outfit is inspired by Pinterest - Striped top, purple skirt, nude heels.  I just wish I had an elephant necklace.

Verdict:  I think it feels a little too short without tights.  I realize it is longer than some of my other skirts, but the flounciness (you know what I mean?) of the skirt makes it feel shorter than my straight skirts.  I think I will keep it, but save it for fall and winter days when I can wear tights.  What do you think?

Top and Skirt: Gap
Shoes: BCBGeneration
Necklace: inPink
Bracelet: from Kenya/gift from a friend

  1. I know what you mean--I'm much less comfortable in a shorter loose skirt than in a shorter pencil-style or straight skirt. The loose ones have too much room for the wind to create a scandalous situation, while the straight ones largely stay put. I'm a big fan of tights, anyways. :)

  2. i totally get you on the length and flouncy ness. some skirts are just more revealing than others. I love tights, and love winter when i can wear them. Having said that youre outfit is still totally lovely!!

    1. Thanks! I think I might just delegate this skirt to winter/tights weather.

    1. Thanks! I have worn it with flats a couple times, and that does help with the feeling of "too short".

  5. Purple and stripes, I love it! I know what you mean about the "flounciness" making it seem shorter, but I don't think it looks bad :)
