Everyday Midi + A Lovely Little à la Mode Link-Up

I've been admiring the romantic look of midi skirts for ages!  Whether I achieve it or not, I really identify with a feminine, classic-yet-slightly-quirky style, and I think that midi skirts really help to achieve this look.  But for some reason, I've never purchased a midi skirt!  I have been holding out for the perfect one.  Plus, part of me wonders if such a beautiful piece is practical for everyday life.

Luckily, I received a lovely midi skirt in my latest Le Tote!  With its polka dot pattern and neutral navy color, it just might be that perfect skirt I have been looking for!  Also, since Le Tote allows me to wear the skirt before choosing whether or not to purchase it, this was the perfect opportunity for me to decide if a midi skirt fits an average day's activities!

Cue an average summer day!  I wore this skirt to lunch with two of my favorite girlfriends and then to a pizza and game night with my family.  Perhaps I was the most dressed-up of the bunch, but my loved ones are used to seeing me in pretty skirts and bold lipstick!  While my look was a bit glamorous with the crystal jewelry, I did tone it down with a basic tee and flats as opposed to wedges.

So what's my verdict?  I do think that I can wear a midi skirt during everyday life.  But alas, at 58 dollars, this skirt is out of my price range.  Let the hunt for the perfect midi continue!
