One of the biggest style adjustments this past year for me has been dressing for my “big girl” job. The days of throwing on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt to class are long over, and now I have to look like, you know, a real adult. I’m a huge fan of the midi skirt. I’m somewhat tall and very long-legged, so most “knee-length” skirts aren’t quite knee length on me.
I love midi skirts because I can pair them with classic blouses during the week for work, and I can swap the blouse for a sleek crop top for weekend wear. I’m all about versatile wardrobe pieces, and this ASOS quilted midi certainly fits the bill.

    I LOVE this skirt! I’ve been realizing lately that my style is getting more and more modest. I need longer skirts like this. This particular skirt would be PERFECT. The style, cut, pattern, color, everything!

    You look so beautiful! I love the color of the skirt, and I think midi-skirts are flattering for any body type. It’s so cool that it’s got a quilted fabric to it, so different and unique. You look very professional in this. 😀
