Never Too Old For a Flirty Skirt

I am not a skirt person because I feel like I am too old to wear one! I have kids who look so cute in tutus and frilly tulle skirts that they prance around. Are skirts able to transcend age?

Top: Zara Combined Studio Shirt SOLD OUT ONLINE (similar but costly here)
Skirt: Jack by BB Dakota Georgina Tulle Skirt (similar here)
Shoes: Zara Peep Toe Wedge Booties (here)
Handbag: Coach Crossbody (similar here and here)
Jewelry: Jewelmint Here To Eternity Set Necklace (similar here)

I had purchased this BB Dakota Tulle skirt during Black Friday with the sale madness. But I never had a chance to wear it. It is worn high up and snug. This might have been a purchased based on “Oh the days, when I was younger…” Now I feel more mature but I still want to pull this outfit off. I had imagined myself dining out with girlfriends or wearing the flirty skirt to some fashionable party. Which I rarely get to do.

But I do like how the skirt makes me feel. Young again.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.

  1. I was just at a blog where the blogger wrote she hated wearing pants! HAHA and now you write you don’t like skirts. I think you always look great. Unfortunately, I tweeted LOFT and it appears the two toned colour blocked dress in my post today has sold out online… Oddly…I don’t recall seeing this dress online. In any case it was available in terms of a bounty at my local loft and through tmrw, all dresses and jewelry are 30% off 🙂

    1. I had this conversation with my Chinese teacher months ago. She is 28 and loves to wear dresses and skirts. While I was always wearing jeans and trousers. I told her it was more practical for me to run around after my kids in pants rather than a skirt. The color block dress is still in stores, but I’m waiting for the 40% off everything to purchase it. Hopefully it’s before 04/10/12, because that’s when my $20 rewards card expires.
