I Feel Pretty | In Skirts

Since my corporate days are (thankfully) a thing of the past, I don’t dress up much anymore.  Honestly, sometimes I REALLY miss it.  Nothing makes me feel more feminine than a great fitting pencil skirt with a tucked-in blouse and some heels.

But one of the best things about blogging is I get to play dress up when I want.  🙂

OK, so playing dress up at the barn isn’t ideal but this is an example of one of those outfits that makes me feel like I can conquer the world.  Skirts and heels give me that powerful combination of confidence and femininity like nothing else.  The same goes for dresses but I’ve always been partial to skirts for some reason.

 Here are some other ways to wear different lengths and styles of skirts.  Which one is your favorite?

    I have worn my leopard skirt with a red blouse before. Your outfit is stunning. I also adore the outfit with the red midi skirt and the one with the floral maxi skirt. It is nice that you posted this today because I am also linking up an outfit with a fun, bright yellow skirt. Check it out. Always a pleasure stopping by beautiful Alison!

    Happy Valentine’s Day dear! <3 Ada.

    I love your leopard skirt!! Great for all seasons! I still struggle with maxi skirts since I am a little shorter. But I love them on other women! I like the A line choice best. Great picks! Susan

    And you certainly look pretty in skirts! I love the varying lengths featured in today’s post! I feel pretty in skirts as well, and that didn’t happen until I was in college 🙂

    I so agree that pencil skirts can be both feminine and empowering. This look exudes both. Love that you chose a leopard skirt because it definitely adds flair to this professional look. Enjoy the rest of the week! ~Cynthia

    I love the look & silhouette of a pencil skirt, but I can’t move in those things. For myself I prefer a full or skater skirt.

    Thanks for hosting the link up 🙂

    You look so pretty in that outfit! I love any and all skirts…I’d love to see a floaty midi or a-line skirt in the Spring challenge! I love that floral maxi, too!

    An outfit like this is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of feminine beauty. You reach that summit regularly. Oh, to breathe the air up there!

    I love wearing skirts, but most the time I am limited to the warmer weather months in Ohio. Love that red midi skirt! That is my kind of outfit!

    Since I became a SAHM, I rarely wear skirts and I miss wearing them (and heels, too!). I think I will have to try and get them back into my wardrobe somehow…

    Although I’m kind of obsessed with the midi-skirt right now, my favorite length has to be the pencil skirt. It’s just so classic and flattering.
