I have always wanted to try wearing a slightly longer skirt to work but I always thought that I would look smaller than usual so whenever I would shop for work clothes, I would still go after the shorter bandage or fitted ones.
I took a chance though when I went to Forever 21 Makati a few weeks ago to check out the Double Markdown Sale. One of the stuff I bought was a turquoise fitted skirt that that runs below the knee.
I felt a bit different when I wore the skirt becuase I felt like my legs could not move that well. I live quite far from work (Imus, Cavite) and take public transportation everyday. In order to lessen my travel time, I make sure to wear flats on my way to work and just change into my heels once I am at work. This is for me to walk faster and move more freely duting my travel.
When I was wearing the skirt, my movements were contrived and I was moving slower than my usual pace. I felt like a mermaid!
I guess wearing thsi type of skirt is just really new to me and takes some getting used to. I love the color of the skirt anyway so I will be giving this another try. I paired the skirt with some pastel shades–a very nice cream lace spaghetti strap top and a light pink sweater, both from Mango.
To add to the pastel vibe I was sporting that day, I had my nails painted in alternate pastel shades- cream and peach.
