Return of the Mini

By now we all know that leopard print and western vibes are going to be huge this fall. Instagram is basically a zoo these days, haha! One of the trends that isn’t getting much attention just yet is the return of mini skirts and dresses. Very noughties and probably a trend that will pick up more once we start to head for the Holiday season (did I just dare go there?). 

Mini skirts are very unlike me. I am aaaaall about midi-length and will rarely be seen wearing anything above the knee, but this cute little polka dot skirt totally won me over.  As soon as I saw it on the H&M website I imagined so many potential Fall outfits around it that I decided to go for it. It was the first piece I bought for the new season this year! I figured I wouldn’t feel uncomfortable if  I’d pair it with opaque tights and booties once it cools down. It also turned out to be the perfect piece to have at hand on weekends during the recent heatwave, haha.

We made these photos on the very last day of said heatwave, during one of the last beautiful golden hours that we had this month. I’m already missing those perfect rays of warm sunlight, ugh. But, rumor has it that Starbucks is bringing the PSL back next week, so I’m not complaining too much! I’m excited for the change of seasons and Fall is my favorite season of all. Bring it on!

    That is scuh a cute skirt – so nice with the casual tee! Glad you got to enjoy some warm weather for a little longer 🙂

    I used to have quite a collection of mini skirt,s but they aren’t the most kid-friendly outfit option when you bend down to toddler level 100 times a day, haha! I’ll just admire them on others this time around! 🙂

    I hope that your week has been going well so far 🙂

    This looks so cute on you! I have been spending lots of time near the local university recently (my cousin just moved in there) and the fashion on the 18 year olds is SO late 90’s/early naughts! It’s wild…things I wore when I was 8-14 years old and definitely NOT cool are the definition of cool to these kids. Mini jean skirts everywhere!

    Jep, mini skirts & dresses zijn ook niet bepaald mijn ding, maar ze komen inderdaad van pas tijdens hittegolven. 😀 Echt een tof printje ook trouwens!
    Ik ben totaal nog niet klaar voor de herfst, aleja, mijn kleerkast is totaal nog niet klaar voor de herfst en ik dus ook niet, dus laat het gerust nog wat langer lekker warm weer zijn zoals vandaag 😀
