Five Take: Midi

June 25, 2011

Hello everyone! I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA this week. My 1st summer session is coming to a close, which means writing, research, writing, and some more writing. Today I was able to take a nice break with the family, so I enjoyed the lake and went to see Super 8 (which was super good).

After 23 years of owning the same boat (and the last 6 or so trying to get the dang thing to run), my parents finally decided to replace the boat, so we definitely had to take it out for a ride.

Old boat:

New boat:

An improvement, huh?!

The lake was beautiful today, and since I thought we were only going for a short ride, I stupidly did not apply any lotion. The view was great, but my new sunburn sucks.

After a short hiatus, Five Take is back! For those who don’t know about Five Take, Nicole, Claire, Elizabeth, Beth and I all take on  an item/trend/theme once a week and show our “take” on it. Even though we use the same theme, all of us show a different side of it, so definitely check out their posts to see what they’ve done.

As for me, the only midi length item I own is my Evan’s accordion pleat skirt. I wore it once here, and decided to change up the vibe of the skirt. I decided to take it from vintage to romantic, with lace and pale pink accents.

I  used my lace dress that I’ve worn here and here as a top to add a different texture to the look. P.S. The pink skin is not a great accessory, hah.

I brought in pale pink accessories through my necklace, cocktail ring, and clutch.

The necklace tended to get lost in the mix, and I had to continuously pull it back on top of my tank because it had a habit of falling into the.. umm abyss.

Although I love big, blingy cocktail rings, they sure do take up a lot of space on my short fingers. Oh well 🙂

(Top/Dress: Macy’s (no longer available), Skirt: Evan’s, Shoes: Torrid (NLA), Ring & Necklace: Forever21 (NLA), Purse: Aldo)

So what do you think? Do you wear midi length skirts/dresses? How do you like to style them?

Make sure to check out Nicole, Claire, Elizabeth, Beth to see what they do!

    Fabulous outfit! I really like the skirt (I also have it!) but I wish Evans would do it in a variety of colours.

    Also, its beyond cool you have a boat! I love boots & water, any excuse to get on a boat & im there!

    LOVE this outfit – very, very nice!!! With sunburn, they tell you know that part of your post-sunburn-defense is to take an aspirin – it reduces the inflammation. Also I think the idea of a Take Five is brilliant!

    You look super classy! I really love how you’ve paired the dress with the lace top!
    Now I want the same skirt! lol

    Rebecca, The skirt is fabulous! I love it (and now of course want one!) Actually the whole outfit!

    Nice boat! Did your hair get lighter in the sun? As always, looks so pretty!

    I love that length and I think it’s pretty universally flattering. Also, I keep telling my husband we need to find a friend who has a boat – so fancy!

    I have thought of buying a skirt like that but havn’t yet. The job money from this summer havn’t come to my conto yet. 😉 I think I own like one or two midi lenght summer dresses. I style them with sunburn, nailpolish and maybe a ring or a scarf in my hair.

    Beautiful! I really like this outfit! I’m actually a big fan of mid-length skirts… they just have this vintagey 50’s vibe to me which I love. I actually have quite a few of them that are in my “work-clothes” rotation. I tend to wear them with embellished knit or woven tank tops and cute cardigans. Then I’ll add trendy accessories like chunky belts and necklaces. My shoes just depend on how I feel that I day… I’ll rock ballet flats all the way up to 5 inch heels. Office friendly and fun! ❤

    I love this ultra-femme look. So very pretty.
