Gray Midi Skirt

Skirt H&M (similar from Topshop at The Bay), heels unknown Ebay, dress (worn as top) Forever 21, clutch Chapters


Toronto is all snowed in again. Ugh. It's a good thing I snapped these photos over the weekend when weather was absolutely gorgeous. Today's outfit is quite a departure from yesterday's, don't you think? Definitely not a tomboy look. It's been a while since I wore this midi A-line skirt from H&M. It is very demur if you ask me. It brings out the lady in me every time I wear it :). One thing you have to watch out for when it comes to wearing this style of a skirt, if you are on a shorter side like me, it's making sure that the hem hits you in the right spot. An inch up or down can make a huge difference. So test it out in front of a mirror and make sure you take it to a tailor to make it just perfect for you. Those of you who have been blessed with long legs, don't have to worry. If you are a petite, I would definitely stay away from midi skirts, you are better off with shorter skater style. Now, I'm not sure if it's just me, but these photos look like they were taken at an old train stations. Something about the skirt, the bricks and the bench make me feel like I went back in time and like a true lady, I'm waiting for a train. I'm just missing a hat and a different bag to go with it. What do you think? Do you agree or am I officially loosing it? hahaha. Ciao!
Toronto je opet prekriven snegom. Dobro je pa ne cujete moje jecaje. Na srecu ove slike su uslikane preko vikenda kada je napolju bilo prelepo vreme. Danasnji outfit je definitivno kompletan kontrast jucerasnjem, zar ne? Od davno nisam imala sansu da pronosam ovu divnu suknju iz H&M. Dopada mi se jer je vrlo zenstvena i kada god je nosim osecam se kao dama u njoj. Ako ste niske kao ja, morate dobro obratiti paznju na duzinu suknje. Ako je potrebno malo da je skratite obavezno to uradite inace ce te izgledati zdepaste. Ako ste blazene dugim nogama, vi nemate brige. A vi dame koje ste jako niske izbegavajte ovu duzinu i model po svaku cenu. Bolje ce vam pristajati kratke suknjice. A sto se tice ovih slika, ne znam da li je to samo u mojoj glavi, ali me podsecaju kao da su uslikane na nekoj staroj zeleznickoj stanici. Kada ih gledam, dal zbog cigli, klupe ili stila suknje, imam osecaj da sam odputovala nazad u vreme, nekin davnih 40tih ili 50til i cekam na voz. Jedino mi jos nedostaje sesir prikladan toj epohi i odgovarajuca tasnica. Da li se i vama tako cini ili sam sam konacno malo prolupala? hahahah Cao!
