I wore a long black skirt every day in high school. Tucked underneath were pajama pants, leggings or, in classic Modern Orthodox high school girl style, a pair of sweatpants from a boys' yeshiva league sports team. I've been slowly weeding those out of my closet, but have hung on to a few pairs... because nothing says 27-year-old mother/PhD candidate like wearing a pair of HANC softball sweats.
When Kosher Casual contacted me to do another review, I saw this navy maxi skirt and immediately remembered those 4 years of slinky black comfort. And boy, does this skirt deliver. At 5'4, it hits me somewhere between my natural waist and my hips, though you could probably fold over the top if you'd like a lower rise. The jersey material flows beautifully, and I wear it every day I need to be down on the floor with the baby (yup, every day). The quality is far superior to the maxis I've seen recently at Target and Old Navy for a comparable price, so if you're in the market for a great long skirt, look no further. The skirt does has visible seams running down its length, which can be worn in front or (as seen above), positioned on the sides. It washes well, but since the seams do tend to pick up a bit of lint, wash inside out.
In other news, baby boy is 6 months old! My time at home with him is nearing a close, but we've thankfully found a highly recommended daycare close to our apartment, public transportation and (priorities) the grocery store. I finally submitted my last papers, so I'm trying to make the most of our last weeks together.
