I am crazy for ankle skimming skirts! I tried the full length maxi over the summer and I was left feeling like I was neglecting my shoes. The ankle length gives you the same effect but feels a little more feminine and shows off our amazing shoes that we probably spent a fortune for.. Why cover them up?? Plus, our ankles are one of the smallest parts of our bodies and accentuating that can be very flattering.
This outfit has sort of a pastoral, early 1900s school teacher vibe to it... Like I could step out of a tiny schoolhouse in the country in black and white. I'm not sure why I've been so reflective and inspired by the past lately.. I think it is not only because I am obsessed with history but also the recent return to simplicity.. We saw a few designers leave hems unfinished for next Spring and it makes me wonder about our society unraveling and our efforts to achieve unattainable perfection.
