I am very much a tomboy. I feel most comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans. But from time to time a skirt catches my eye. I especially love a maxi in the summer. Doing some closet cleaning over the holiday break I noticed I had amassed quite the collection of skirts but hardly ever wear them. So I challenged myself to rock them... for the month of January (real smart Kim!). I kept it to strictly "winter appropriate" skirts though.
What I wore: ASTARS Into You Midi Skirt via MYHABIT // Tilly's Leather Skirt // Nasty Gal Bar From It Body Chain $25 // Lulu's vegan leather tote (similar here) // J.Crew Factory buffalo plaid scarf (similar here)
This is what I wore for a girl's night with Alex and Laura (as you may have seen on Snapchat). For some reason, I have been really wanting a sweater skirt. Perhaps because I thought it would be more comfortable than my maxi skirts. So I took a chance on this sweater skirt on MYHABIT and glad I did. LOVE IT! I wore it a black top and body chain. I think it was like a toned down version of my Halloween outfit lol. It was a random night where it was 55 degrees so I dared to just wear my leather jacket but immediately regretted that.

Target kids to the rescue! Maxi skirts are hard for me since I'm so petite and most just drag. Thankfully I can still fit in kids large sizes so I have a few Target maxi skirts. I did; however, have random luck at H&M. I wore the midi skirt for my transitional fall outfit and since I wore this gray skirt for my holiday party look I thought I'd make it more casual for the challenge. I got the most compliments on this look! The Old Navy plaid skirt was one of my more recent purchases that kind of inspired this post. For some reason I was really drawn to this skirt. I thought I could dress it up for the office or make it more casual for a night out. One trick for petite girls is to find a knee length or midi skirt and it will fit like a maxi.
P.S. Thanks to my co-worker Daniel for taking most of these pics.
What item in your wardrobe do you neglect? How would you wear a skirt in the winter?
