This outfit was inspired by the #StyleMeMay prompt of the day, which was to wear something that "used to scare you." Midi-length skirts scared me because I think they can come off as frumpy (maybe that's because Mikhail addressed me as Grandma the first time he saw me in one). But I took the plunge with this swingy blue Asos number. Orange is something I'm finally coming around to, but I had never really worn it with navy before.
In reality, I had a hard time finding an outfit for this particular challenge because I'm mostly unwilling to try out things that truly scare me. Pleated pants? No, my short torso just cannot handle that shape. Kudos to ladies who can rock it, though. And those floral pants that are everywhere? I just can't wrap my head around them. I'm still undecided on the re-emergence of denim jackets. Honestly, all three of these things combined give me scary flashbacks to my fifth grade fashions, and I'm just not sure I'm ready to go there.
