The Fingertip Test

This skirt was one of my December purchases. I got it with some Twice credits I had saved up ($10 off your first purchase if you are interested). It's a really nice quality and the colors are right up my alley. It's a little shorter than I am used to. The funny thing is I used to wear shorter skirts than this in high school! Besides, it totally passes the fingertip test!



When I was picking out this outfit, navy was an obvious pairing. Cool colors go together so well in my opinion. I think next time I might try a plum or even mustard colored top with this skirt. With the plaid wool, riding boots, and utility vest I feel like I should be rambling in the Scottish countryside or something!

  1. Great skirt! If it passes the fingertip test you are good! Especially with tights too.

  2. The fingertip test is a good one to follow. I love all the layering here. Once I have a Military Vest & Similar Necklace I will re-create this. =)


    Thank you so much for all the compliments on our last Collaboration Look. You are too sweet.

  4. I had a skirt similar to that a few years back, which I stupidly got rid of. They never go out of style. I miss it so, especially after seeing this super cute look you put together. Love the color scheme!

  6. I think the skirt is adorable, and thankfully when you wear it with tights you don't have to worry as much about how short it is.

  7. This is super cute! I agree that with tights, skirts can go a little shorter. When I was in school, the rule was that shorts had to be fingertip length and skirts had to go past your knee. There were not many cute options in those ranges!

  8. Great ensemble and styling on this Lauren! I love blue but I tend to get stuck in a rut with it. {always wearing it with tan, etc.} Your style sense is one of my favorites in all of blogland!
