I have always liked long skirts, and the longer the better. Pair it with the perfect flat and it's the perfect summer attire...hope you're having a great week, Marsha!
Kristy, Tish Jett was just here in our store yesterday. It's been a busy time. How's the new book going?
Yes! Haven't worn heels for years. Too bloody uncomfortable. Love seeing the evolution of fashion.
So happy to hear this. I feel today's fashion is so much more practical/comfortable. It's hard to give up the more formal ways, I know. But, I love the espadrille look which Karl Lagerfeld brought back a couple of seasons ago.
No, I don't.
Tell me why. I would love to know your thoughts.
Like and love long skirts too.... So much! And those flats are absolutely great by:)))Comfortable,chic and feminine too!
I really like the first photo. The heavy sweater vs. the filmy skirt. The long line of the sweater makes for an elegant silhouette. The snakeskin dresses up the shoes, even though they're flat.I think it's much classier for a woman to be able to walk with confidence than for her to be tottering around unstably on high heels.
I love this look for a taller woman, however when you are 5ft. like I am it's not that goodof a look. What I do love is the comfortability and style at the same time. I worked in the fashion industry in New York for 14 years and I can still remember my aching feet because we had to wear heels all day in the showroom.Great look but not for really short women.Love your blog, warmly, Carol from Chicago
I don't mind the flats...maturity demands them. However, sneakers, "flip flops"...no thank you! Sneakers with jeans, fine! "Flip flops" with anything...not for me. Walking around with feet exposed (and not all feet should be exposed), collecting dirt and dust during the day, not to mention the damage they do to your arches...no thank you. Back in the day, when I taught in an inner city school, one of our male teachers was sent home to change his shoes when he appeared wearing sandals. I have no idea what they are wearing on their feet now!
I've been wearing this look for years. Long skirts are more comfortable in warm weather, and in the winter I find they keep my knees and feet warmer when I'm at the desk/computer for long periods. Plus, heels, who needs 'em? They just hurt your feet.Looking forward to hearing about your Tish event.
I like it too! Hope you are hang a great week.
LOVE THE LONG SKIRT............YEARS AGO when the BOYS were young I wanted to make "MY OUTFIT" a long skirt with a sweatshirt TOP maybe opening up the crew neck to an asymmetrical opening.........to be my uniform.BUT it was hard to find long skirts in those days!!The FLAT SHOE Is MY ONLY shoe................XO
I agree the shoes look clunky in proportion to the floaty skirts, prefer a ballet flat or pretty strappy flat sandal with delicate straps. Or those cute little lace up pointy toe flats I see now like from Stuart WeitzmanKris in Seattle
Love, love love it!....Was wearing this look ages ago....a bit too old(and chubby!) for it now...but still love it!
I love it!!Have a nice weekend, Marsha.Tereza
Seriously , I love it too and it is one of my outfit already.
...and seriously I love it too...so feminine and buoyant and it is one of my outfit already. Prefer the style from picture 1 much more. Myself wear it in silvergrey for the skirt and dark grey for the woolen sweater with boots in winter and now with black T-shirt and ballerinas. I am 162 cm and therefor can't agree with Carol Sz. that this is a style only for tall women because it depends on the material which should be soft and perhaps not wearing sneakers.
Considering I dread the thought of shorts I welcome a flowing long skirt and I love great loafers!! I found a nice pair of suede ones at ZARA so now I just need a slouchy sweater and a skirt.. thanks my friend!! xo
LOVE that styling Marsha x
Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
