Sweater: Goodwill (Target) — Skirt: Thrifted — Leggings: Target — Boots: Woman Within — Necklace: Gift from Tia! — Earrings: Vendor on campus
Can you tell that I wore this outfit for running around on errands last weekend? The skirt is too short for work, and in the past, I would have passed it up entirely upon finding it at the thrift store. Lately, though, I’ve become more amenable to short skirts and their potential place in my wardrobe, and I really enjoy the pleats and punchy color of this one.
Is it a miniskirt, though? How is “mini-ness” defined in a skirt or dress? Is it the fingertip test? So many questions. I do know that I like shorter skirts with opaque leggings, and I think the length of this skirt works well to mitigate some of the looseness of the sweater so that this outfit isn’t a total slouchfest.
Of course, some owl bling on my chest doesn’t hurt either.
Do you like shorter skirts? How and when do you like to wear them? Is it possible to isolate the “mini-ness” of a garment on a molecular level? Get on it, fashion scientists!
