I’m a big believer that most fashion rules are outdated, unnecessary and simply should be ignored.
You want to wear white after Labor Day!? DO IT, girl.
Thinking about pairing black with navy? Yaaaaaaaaaaassssss.
Sneakers with a dress?? Get after it.
It seems the older we get, the more of these archaic fashion rules apply. For example, who decided that once we are a certain age, mini skirts are no longer appropriate?! I’d like to meet this individual and have a serious sit down.
Navigating fashion trends and changing styles definitely becomes a bit trickier with age, but with the right know-how you can proudly rock that mini skirt and take back the hemline. #FreeTheLegs — I think I’m onto the next big social media trending movement!
The neighborhood literally becomes a full-blown street party and it just so happens, this all went down on the hottest day of the summer. I couldn’t have been happier to spend a few hours in the comfort of THE SPOTTED OWL air conditioning with a cocktail in hand. All in, a pretty sweet “work” situation, right?!
The 90-degree temperatures and oppressive humidity outside made me think about 1) an immediate shower 2) a great hot-weather style that I will definitely be wearing before the week’s end.
Specifically, the denim mini-skirt.
Children of the 80’s — remember those denim mini’s we used to wear? Well, they’re back in a big way. The 70’s influenced Fall 2015 runway collections were full of flares, off-the-shoulder tops and yes, the denim A-line mini-skirt. This go around, the denim mini-skirt is a bit longer, with button details and a silhouette that pulls away from hips/thighs that easily flatters all body types. Whether worn with a tee and flats during the day, or dressed up with heels after dark, the denim mini-skirt will ensure you stay cool while staying in style.
