So the first thing that this skirt makes me think of is the credits to the TV show Saved by the Bell. It was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the print for the first time. I never really liked Saved by the Bell, although occasionally I watch the reruns now because I am pretty sure the show is funnier now that I'm an adult as opposed to a child, but I digress. Getting back to the skirt, there is just something about this print that screams late 80s/early 90s and mimics the graphics of the show's credits, in my opinion.
The second thing this skirt reminds me of is a conversation I witnessed between a mother and daughter the last time I was at the J. Crew Factory. The mother of a teenage daughter was trying to talk her daughter out of buying this exact skirt because it was too long and didn't show off her figure. I remember thinking it was kind of a strange thing for a mother to be pushing on her daughter and then I remember thinking: does this make me old and frumpy since I love these full, midi skirts? Once the question crossed my mind I dismissed it as absurd. Midi skirts are definitely my favorite length of skirt and I think a style that transcends age. Plus, this skirt has a youthful, fun print mixed with a modest length and style; it's really the best of both worlds, but that's just my two cents and random musings on the topic!
