This spring, long, swishy skirts are splashed across the pages of all our fave fashion mags, and although the styling is gorgeous, like the outfit idea below...

I'm not sure it's for me. I love long dresses, so I should love long skirts, right? They're romantic, interesting, and hey, if I really hate them so much, I can just pull them up and have a new strapless dress!

How cute is she? The stripes are nautical with the rope belt, the jacket brings some edge, and the scarf as a headwrap? Swank. Love the nude cutouts - definitely this season's heels to own!
It seems to boil down to creativity: if you have a hankering for a long skirt, find one that you love, and use things you already own to use it more than one way.
Outfit idea: your new (or thrifted!) long skirt worn as a dress, a military-inspired blazer and a skinny (metallic!) belt. We love wedges, but if they're not for you, a gladiator sandal (with a pedicure!) will also be fab. Pinning half your hair up with a pretty barette won't hurt, neither ;)
