You may remember this skirt from Tuesday. You know, because it's only been a couple of days. You're going to see a lot of this skirt in 2015. I've been wearing it nonstop since it showed up on my doorstep. Literally, I've worn this outfit at least seven times since then.

After searching and searching, and even placing a few orders, I finally found the perfect midi skirt. A few months ago I thought I had found it, but the skirt was too wide/tight/scuba for my real life. I even almost blogged it, but I didn't want to lie and pretend I'd worn it. So off to Uptown Cheapskate it went.

I realized that what I wanted wasn't the volume, but the flowiness of the length. (I know flowiness isn't a word -- or it wasn't until this skirt invented it!) ASOS' midi skirts have long tempted me, but their foreign-to-me UK sizing eluded me. Not to mention every skirt was always sold out in every. single. size. Someone must have made some last minute Black Friday returns, because about a week before Christmas my size appeared on the site and I immediately put that skirt in my shopping cart and even paid extra to get it ASAP. #worthit

Since I know I'll be wearing it at least once a week for the rest of the year, I think I'm going to buy one in yellow for summer. That way I can alternate. I'm obsessed.

    I've recently become obsessed with midi skirts and dresses. There's something about the fit that I love and the skirts are the perfect length.

  6. I love the midi! I ordered two from ASOS just this past week and got them in the mail last night. Sadly, I am too short for the ones I ordered so they will be going back!

  11. Wow, you look lovely in a midi skirt!! I've always liked the style, but I've not found one that looks okay on me. I really like that this one isn't suuuuper voluminous - it drapes on you so nicely! Also, in that first photo, you look like a total badass, and I love it.
