Don't Call It A Comeback: The Revival Of The Midi Skirt


Summer is officially here, which means now is the time to experiment with warm weather looks, ditching our stiff and bulky denim jeans for breezy alternatives to keep us cool and comfortable inside and out. As temperatures begin to swiftly rise and we shed those stay-at-home knits, we are in dire need of cooler alternatives. Chic yet conservative, the midi skirt is a personal favorite that continues to stand the test of time, becoming more chic and playful as fashion trends continue to come and go.

The best midi skirts are those that are dressed up or down depending on the day's scheduled events, easily transitioning from day to night with a quick shoe and accessory change. Knowing no age limit, the midi ranges in a variety of prints, colors, and textures for every type of woman. Not only a favorite summer staple, this skirt can also be worn year-round from one season to the next, allowing even more style for your buck.

An alternative to the plaid mini skirt is of course the midi! I love this style because of the not so common blue-colored fabric, which gives a unique twist to the traditional plaid color palette. When shopping for midi skirts, look for styles with side slits for a chic yet feminine approach to compliment the longer hemmed silhouette. Pair with a cute white top and a sneaker for a bold yet comfortable summer look.

Yellow is such an underrated color slowly making its way into mainstream fashion. It's perfect for women with darker skin tones. With this silk midi skirt, I decided to tie it in a side knot to give it an extra flair, paired with a yellow knit crop top for a stylish monochromatic daytime summer look. Perfect for a picnic date in the park, this warm weather outfit will instantly become a favorite.

Look 3: The Textured Midi

One of the biggest trends predicted to dominate 2020, mesh detail is a sexy and sophisticated summer style that can be easily incorporated into fun daytime looks. As to not distract from the mesh and textured design, pair with a casual top such as a lightweight tied white button-down for a swim cover-up or add a flat sandal for an eye-catching tropical look out and around town. Add statement gold earrings and a canvas bag to complete this beachy chic ensemble.

The Reality Of Living With Severe Asthma – As Told by 2 Women On Their Disease Journey

This post is in partnership with Amgen.

The seemingly simple task of taking a breath is something most of us don’t think twice about. But for people who live with severe asthma, breathing does not always come easily. Asthma, a chronic respiratory condition that inflames and narrows the airways in the lungs, affects millions of people worldwide – 5-10% of which live with severe asthma. Severe asthma is a chronic and lifelong condition that is unpredictable and can be difficult to manage. Though often invisible to the rest of the world, severe asthma is a not-so-silent companion for those who live with it, often interrupting schedules and impacting day-to-day life.

Ever since I found the joy that is twisting up my hair with added hair in an effortless protective style that can be achieved in four hours or less (and in the comfort of my own home), I've been obsessed with simple hairstyles that are easy to do and not a pain to maintain.

Throwing some simple albeit a little messy twists into my hair whenever I want to tuck my natural hair away for a bit or have the ease or a break from daily manipulation is a welcomed change, especially when you are a lazy natural who never quite got the hang of doing her own hair beyond rocking an afro.
