Great Lengths


I kind-of have a thing for pleated skirts - you can look back through my outfit posts & see the proof (here, here & here).  But, because of my height, I've had a hard time finding a maxi skirt that is truly long enough...and within my budget.  So when I came across this one at JCPenney, I snatched it up right away.  Not only is the length just right (I can wear this with flat sandals, wedges or heels), but the creamy white color will go with everything from a plain gray tee to a chambray shirt or a bright blouse like the one I'm wearing here.




What I'm wearing:
Old Navy top (here), Allen B skirt (here), Vintage necklaces, Target cuff (similar), Gap belt (similar), BCBG pumps (not shown)

This look is beautiful! I have the same opposite problem, I'm way to short and long skirts don't fit me well. I love anything with yellow, so this one is a favorite!

Xoxo,
Di

I absolutely love this outfit. All the pleated maxis I find having mini-length lining and are sheer from the mid-thigh down. I love that this one is a full maxi.

Well, I have the opposite problem with maxi skirts lol..you are right, the color of this one is perfect! Love it with the bright top!

Love this outfit! Wish I could be as tall as you are so I don't need to alter every skirt I buy. The pop of yellow with the white is perfect for spring! Also adore your belt-the bow detail is so fun! This is a perfect Cali outfit...maybe not for the conference but definitely for a day :)
beijos,
Tiffany

I have the same problem with maxis. I tried on a dress that I loved but it was miles too short. Love this look and how you paired the skirt with the bright top.

Christine said...

beautiful! Yellow and white! I'm very inspired by this chic combination!

I love your pleated skirt and have been searching for a long one. I have found several that are knee or midi length. I am really short (5'2") so finding long skirts that don't have to have 4-5" removed are very hard to find.

Perfect look for spring! Love the skirt!

I love everything about your style. You look classic but still current with the trends. I love, love, love your necklaces. Is there anyway you could do something on finding similar
Ok. I know many of them are vintage. Thank you.

Kimberly said...

Hi Jaclynn, I have amassed quite the collection of necklaces over the years - and I've done a few posts on affordable necklace options...if you type in "necklace" in the search bar, they should come up. Most of my vintage pieces have been found either on eBay or through local thrift/resale shops. :)

I have a fetish for pleated skirts too! No way I could ever rock the awesome long white one in this post, though, on my 5 foot frame. Oh well. Good job wearing this piece, and not letting it wear you!
