This is a look I love in catalogs and on other women, but it's a hard look to wear myself. We all have parts of our body that we aren't thrilled with, and my legs are one of mine. I have very pale skin, despite my love affair with Jergens. Not only that, without the lengthening benefits of tights (worn with boots or heels), I think skirts make me look shorter and heavier.
But despite my own misgivings, I have a few spring and summer skirts I like and I enjoy pulling together some looks to change up my style.
One skirt that I have had in my closet for a while, is a simple black and white graphic skirt from Talbots. There's not much magic to it, it has a simple elastic waistband, and fits straight down in pencil-skirt style. The fabric is a great weight, so it lays nicely and works with bare legs or with tights. The black and white graphic print makes it an all-year wardrobe piece.
I wanted to pair it with my denim shirt because right now, I am loving the look of denim with black and white. A simple white tank, and black flip flops completed a simple (and comfortable) errand-running day outfit.
Skirt - Talbots (old)
Tank - Aventura Bienne Tank (new and I'm an Ambassador)

Are you a fan of the spring skirt? How are you styling it right now?
