It’s been a while since I last pulled the denim mini skirt out for a look of mine. I thought I would have at least styled it up a couple of times during the winter or early spring with potentially a pair of thick black tights and a chunky knit but I guess it just never materialised. Anyway, here I am styling it for a spring to summer inspired outfit. See I find that this denim skirt is a little misleading I always think of it being longer then it actually is. I think because it sits high on the waist it tricks the eye, which I guess is good because like I said, at least it looks longer. But in reality it feels rather short and when I’m wearing it I become very aware of that. This doesn’t mean I’m against short skirts, dresses or shorts, no, not one bit. I think it’s just because I’m used to wearing trousers or mid-length dresses and skirts more often then not and so it always takes a little more getting used to when they feel much shorter.
Something else that I have not worn in while, in fact a rather long time indeed and that is these Chloe ballet flats. It’s crazy when I think about it because ballet flats used to be my vibe and for years, I owned quite a few pairs and wore them to death. These Chloé ones remain just as chic and delicate as they were when I first bought them years ago. I guess because my personal taste has evolved to love a chunkier style of shoe, my dedication to the ballet flat diminished but you know what? There’s nothing like a classic navy sweater teamed with something denim to remind me how chic a ballet flat was and continues to be! And that is my ode to the discreet but always formidable ballet flat.
