I realized I'd worn this outfit - or close to it - two or three times in as many weeks. That's more repeating than I usually do, but it's both comfortable and flattering. It's a bit basic - I have a wrap sweater that adds a bit more dimension - but the weather's been warm again so a tee is just about right.

Uniqlo tee, Zara skirt, Tsubo boots. And new Hue tights a size bigger than the size chart suggests - infinitely better! All purchased new this season, come to think of it - that's a big shift for me.

How do you feel about the skirt length? It's on the short side. Funny - I always err in the other direction, wearing skirts that look too long on my short legs and thus frumpier than expected. I like this one, and I'm comfortable with the length for work. What do you think? (Mid-30s lab scientist; supervising a grad student but not teaching.)
