WIWW - unsure

I have this new outfit that I'm not 100% sure about.
Brittany and I were at Forever 21 and she held up this
tight, short, spandex, purple skirt and said
"You have to get this!  I have one in black and I love it!"
I wasn't so sure.
I tried to get away with "I can't afford it."
So Brittany picked up the tag and said "It's $5."
Oh.
Well, truth be told, I think it would make me look like a hooker.
Short.  Tight.  I was nervous just looking at it.
Brittany was of the opinion that for $5, you can't go wrong.
She assured me that if I paired it with a loose top, I wouldn't look like a hooker. 

(Sorry to keep describing it that way...it became a joke because after I said it the first time, Brittany named it "the hooker skirt" and that has since been how we describe it.)

So, I bought it, a few months ago, and have procrastinated wearing it.
 Brittany does look super-cute in hers, but every time I try it on, I take it off again.

So, here I am being brave and trying something that I would never have picked on my own:
I wore leggings with it and a flowy top and it kind of started to grow on me.
By the end of the day, I kind of liked it.
Then I had my husband snap a few pictures.
Umm...
Did I put the wrong top with it because this picture is not very flattering?
 
So I tried taking some of my own pictures in the mirror when I got home.
Not much better.
On the bright side, it makes me look like I have a nice round bum.
I haven't had much of a bum since I had babies but this skirt makes it look like I do :)

What do you think?

  1. I do like the leggings w/ the skirt {I too would be nervous wearing something above my knee}. I think I would have worn a different shirt, if it were me.

    But you do look darling!

BUT either way your one hot HOOKER ;) hehehe! Glad you got it - I love it on you! um PS - hookers don't wear leggings underneath so I think your safe ;)

    1. Ha ha, thanks. I thought it looked better in real life too, so I was really disappointed with the pictures. I couldn't get it to look right. Oh well. When are you coming over next? :)

  3. I love that you paired it with leggings. Any time I'm unsure about the length of something, I always tend to pair it with leggings!

    1. Me too! LOL. I'd rather wear leggings than feel like I'm tugging on my skirt all day. Plus, with kids, I am doing so many different things, that I need to be able to move around and not be afraid of my skirt coming up :)
