I’ve had a love interest in midi skirts for a couple of years now, as evidenced here and here. The problem is, it’s hard to find a good midi skirt that is both flattering and affordable, and most mainstream stores don’t regularly carry them in-store to try on for yourself. So I’ve ordered several online, and most go back because the fabric is weird or the waistband is too poofy or whatever. For years I longed for a good midi skirt to be carried someplace like The Gap or Target.

Finally, my wish was granted and I happened on this cute burgundy midi skirt piece of perfection at Target, for $19.99!
IMG_8799There’s a lace slip underneath so just the tiniest bit of lace peeks out along the hemline. and the fabric is lightweight so it moves beautifully. Granted, the fabric is a little on the cheap side and I don’t anticipate this skirt lasting me for years and years, but I should get some decent mileage out of it.
IMG_8805I love a full midi skirt back to a sleek top, but decided to try it here with a looser fitting tee, and I love how it worked together. Added a simple skinny black belt and it was the perfect little outfit. I think I’ll wear this for Thanksgiving in fact.IMG_8809 IMG_8810What are you all planning for Thanksgiving this year? Staying close to home or traveling? Anyone in charge of cooking the big feast? We’re going to my sister’s house and I’m luckily only in charge of bringing a couple of sides and the fixings for my Apple Cider Moscow Mules. I think I could bring those alone and everyone would be happy!IMG_8818Wishing you all a wonderful week and a lovely holiday with family or friends, or both!

    I have recently started to follow you on instagram and later discovered your style blog and i’m slightly obsessed!! I am 38 with 2 young children and sadly my sense of style has plummeted in the last few years because it is hard to find that happy medium between totally put together/glamormama and practical – I have to be dressed for projectile food being tossed at me by my 15 month old- Your outfits are both uber stylish and low maintenace enough to make it easy to pull off. Thank you for these awesome tips. I can’t wait to see what else you have in store. Cheers!

  • Looks like I’m going to Target tonight! 🙂
