10 of 30: Short skirt on a windy day

I've worn this dress before a few times, but always with leggings or jeans underneath. Today I decided to go outside my comfort zone (again) and try this dress on its own with tights.

I like the look, but I've discovered the dress has a bad tendency to bunch up in the front when I'm walking — not a good look when it's already got as short a skirt as this does! And when the day has any wind in it — as today did — I keep instinctively pulling my skirt down, even if it didn't need it. The skirt is so loose and light I barely feel it, which is a bad thing — I was paranoid all day that my skirt had ridden up/flown up in front of/behind me and I just couldn't feel it!

I do still like the dress — it's warm and bright — but I think I'll look for a new way to wear it.

And please, ignore my hair — Dan took this photo of me at the end of the day, by which time my hair seems to have gone rogue.

30 for 30

Wow, this outfit with your hair down and dress with less black makes a real contrast to your last two. Very nice :)

I know what you mean about skirt bunching - I've got a little short petticoat (I think I just got a second hand one and cut it to the right length) which helps a bit and feels a little more secure if the dress is going to fly away...

I hate it when I feel like I need to pull my skirt down and it really is just fine.
