Parks & Recreation…
Picture this. I am at home loud music booming through the speakers and I am doing the Azonto. No half stepping I mean really giving it my all - exaggerating every movement. Why? Consider it a small victory dance. Of late I have noticed that i am getting a lot of traffic on my blog - so a big welcome to the new visitors, i am humbled by your interest! What can i say, Welcome to the madness. Those that visit this domain on the regular, you know how we roll - so lets get to it.
Its a fact of life, wether we like it or not at midnight we bid our farewells to another weekend and now welcome the beginning of a new working week. Looking down at my iphone i seriously can not believe that we are approaching the end of March.
It literally seems like just the other day I was shopping for Christmas presents. Where has the time gone? At a glacial pace i am starting to believe as you grow older time seems to move a hell of a lot faster.
I live on the internet, no surprise there - we all have some telco company drilling a whole in our pocket. Yes, as they say the world seems a a lot smaller giving us up to the minute updates of what designers are sending down the runway, celebrities are wearing etc. Most of times I have a blank stare and ask the question, really? More to the point - even if I was blending $100 bills for a morning shake and could afford some of the things - where would I wear it?
Which brings us to today’s outfit, enough ranting. On the internet I noticed the longer hemlines have made a major comeback. I literally wanted to high five and pat designers on the back. Finally a trend that could be incorporated into the real world and worn by real women like you, me, your mama, your sister, your wife etc.
As an early adopter I have for now ditched the mini skirt for one that is just a few inches below the knee giving me a 50’s -inspired, lady like look.
At 163cm i have to tell you, I was scared that the full midi skirt might be unflattering or just look plain frumpy. When i slipped on the skirt I immediately knew it going to be a great transitional piece providing endless styling opportunities for work or play.
When rocking the full midi skirt the most important accessory will be your shoes! Because of the length of the skirt you need to elongate your legs and show off your calves. Its a no brainer really, but the easiest way to do this is with a good pair of heels.
….Happy St Patricks Day!
