Object of Desire
The perfect summer skirt
By: Julie Ryan Evan
For months now, I’ve been scouring boutiques, online sites and malls for the perfect summer skirt-not too long, but not too short (above the knee, but not up to my crotch!); not too full (so as to look like a bell) and not made of a material that requires ironing.
I didn’t want it to have a ruffle or a fold-over waist-band (does anyone really need an extra layer right there?) or a drawstring (looks weird under fitted, longer shirts).
No buttons, no zippers, no pleats.
But other than that, I’m not picky.
It could be any color, any print, I just want to throw it on with tank tops and flip flops.
So there it was sitting was sitting in my inbox today inside my daily shopbop mail. Isn’t it perfect? Isn’t it Splendid?
I can’t wait to order it!
