Party in the Front, Business in the Back

I have been on the fence about the big hi-low trend this season. Not because I don’t like the look, but I think it is a trend better suited for tall people, and I am by no means tall. But the fashionista in me has definitely had me curious and I have been keeping my eyes open (but not exactly looking) for a piece that might work for someone shorter like me. Let’s just say that it has been on my “want” list, but definitely towards the bottom.

And then one day, when I was working in the new Macy’s store that we are opening (THIS WEEK!!!!), I overheard two sales associates talking about “mullet” skirts. It took me a minute to realize what a mullet skirt was and then of course I realized they were talking about hi-low skirts. And in that moment, I knew I had to have one. I mean, really? A skirt named after the raddest hair style known to man kind? Who wouldn’t want one???

Skirt:  Material Girl (select Macy’s stores)

Belt: American Eagle

Leggings: American Apparel

Watch:  Michael Kors c/o Nordstrom Rack

Black Wedges: Urban Outfitters (sold out)

So not only have I found my perfect mullet skirt, but my version is a super fun and flattering silky fabric with a unique striped pattern that I am just in love with. Plus, with all of the colors, it makes for an easy piece to wear a lot of different ways.  But this is how I styled it for a date night with my hubby to celebrate his 30th birthday over the weekend. I also gave him the night off and took my own photos so he could put his feet up and relax!  Happy, happy birthday to my love!!!
