So, here is the skirt of controversy styled a few ways for your consideration.

As you can see from my pics, it has a slit up one side and a short underskirt so it is not see through all the way up. It is extremely light and floaty.

This skirt feels to me like an updated version of those floaty bias skirts or the Indian peasant skirts some of us wore in the 90s. It has a very "easy to wear" feel to it, and to be honest, if I worked in an office, this would be an absolute no brainer. I am just not sure I'll wear it enough in my casual life.

FWIW, Mr. Suz likes it a lot.

I am also trying out the FAB Nickel & Suede earrings/ cuffs that Lisa modelled and Inge introduced us to. These are brilliant because they are super lightweight. Perfect summer jewellery. I highly recommend them. I am going to be ordering more. I got cuffs in gold and white, and earrings in gold, silver, and white.

ETA: these are all basically versions of tucked tops or loose tanks with the skirt, and various jackets as possible toppers. 6 is some pattern mixing, 7 shows Celia's taupe top (waving to Celia!), 14 is with a crisp white shirt for a bit of contrast (floaty and crisp). I do have a few more options in the closet.

Because it is super light, it is most absolutely a summer skirt for my climate. No use in any other season.
