I’ve had a bit of an obsession going on with midi – skirts for a few months now. It all started when I saw the most gorgeous skirt in Target from their Runway to Rack collection.
But you know, being the
tightass budget savvy fashionista that I am I didn’t purchase the $80 skirt that I lurved instead I went on the look out for something just as cute without the hefty price tag. I did keep me eyes peeled though, for that lovely Target skirt during the sales but alas it was not to be!
So in the lead up to Christmas I was determined to find a skirt that I liked and just like that the Baby Jesus answered my prayers! Kinda……( most likely my keen eye rather than divine intervention! )
I was out shopping as usual when I saw a fab pink midi-skirt just waiting to be purchased! So new that it hadn’t even made it’s way onto the shop floor yet……..!
I was bursting at the seems to wear my ensemble on Christmas day, as I’ve said before I love buying new outfits for the family to wear for Christmas. We’ll get to the outfit in a moment.
For today’s post I have put together five outfits featuring two midi-skirts and a variety of tops. As you scroll through the photo’s I will let you know where the items are from to the best of my ability. A couple of the tops are staples from my wardrobe but you will see they are items that should be easy to find or you may have something similar in your wardrobe already!
First up is the Christmas Day outfit!
