J. Crew Ruffle Mini Skirt in Houndstooth

Hi Everyone!

It's no secret that I LOVE a cute J. Crew skirt!  And, lately, I've figured out a sizing trick when it comes to those cute mini skirts that would be too short for me in the regular length.  I loved this skirt when it first appeared on the website, but it was a mini, so I passed on it initially.  Then, I decided to try these mini skirts in the tall size for extra length.  Winner, winner chicken dinner!  It worked!!!  And, I tried it again with the J. Crew Ruffle Mini Skirt in Houndstooth.  I am so glad that the tall length works for me because this skirt is SO fabulous! 

Here are two ways to style this beautiful skirt:

One of my amazing online VPSs created the look with the navy graphic t-shirt and my amazing retail store peeps helped me create the look with the leather jacket. 

This skirt is SO versatile.  I love the idea of pairing the skirt with an equally versatile graphic t-shirt for a little fun pattern mixing.  A cable knit sweater and a fun leather moto jacket is another cute (and warm) styling idea.  I took this skirt in a 14 Tall.  There is an elastic waistband in the back of the skirt, which makes the fit a bit generous.  So, you could likely size down.  I tried the skirt with taller boots, but I think that it works best with booties to elongate the legs. 

Thanks for stopping by!
