I don’t even want to think about how short my skirts were in my twenties. They were more loin cloth than skirt (Sorry mom!) and every time I crossed my legs, my uterus was basically exposed to whoever was sitting in front of me (Sorry strangers on the train! Sorry random people in bars! Sorry to everyone, everywhere! Mea culpa!).
Then, a few years ago I finally realized how uncomfortable short skirts made me — not just from the intermittent flashing, but all the damn tugging! They never stayed in place on my hips. I finally gave up, gifted them all to my little sister (who is smack in the middle of her twenties) and proudly adopted the midi as a (gasp) thirty year old.
What do you think? Are minis just the gateway skirt to a midi? Or can you rock both simultaneously? Which do you prefer?
