Top: Victoria’s Secret
Skirt: Asos (remixed)
Shoes: Diana Ferrari
As expected, I much prefer this Asos skirt cropped short to the original length, which made me feel a little dowdy.
The skirt could probably have been a smidgy bit longer, but it’s been SO hot lately, that when I took it to the clothing alteration place I was thinking more “summer” than “trans-seasonal”. Hasty, hasty; though I decided at the last minute not to give the second skirt I’d taken in for hemming the same alteration.
The shorter length doesn’t hang quite so heavily from my hips, and the colour – a deep, resounding burgundy – doesn’t overwhelm the other elements of the outfit. I love it with the yellow touches, and I’m already planning some outfits utilising my favourite mustard-coloured cardigan… once it cools down a little, anyway.
