DIDN'T THINK I'D SEE YOU AGAIN

I had an entirely different outfit ready to go for today.
Then, I checked the weather.  And put said outift away for a nicer day.

Since I was tapped out and tired, I turned to a rather recent source of inspiration - and Googled my girl Diane Keaton.  And found this.

Since it was late, there was no time for a test run, so I just crossed my fingers that it would work.  If I dare say so myself, it does.  I almost thought about selling this skirt, thinking I wouldn't have much of a need for a long plaid skirt.  Even though I've worn it twice before, I guess I figured my options were all played out. Now, I beg to differ ...

It just rippled in the breeze with such ease.

  6. So cute! I wonder if you would get more wear out of the skirt if you cut it off above the knee? or brought that bottom ring of fabric up to mid thigh?
