"With that skirt he’ll follow you anywhere." ;))
I like skirts a lot,but I wear only dresses.And since I'm not confident enough,I wear only long dresses.But you have beautiful legs and confidence,so you're looking good. :)
Interesting bag....again.

Mmh AND I widely approve your "gin tonic-esque" comparison Dear !!! I think that mini skirts or shorts will never cease to sound as much laid back / sexy "Summery Allegories" . . .

à Bientôt, Antoine

U have pretty legs for minis. :)

INTRO TO MY LIFE said...

there nothing better then a great mini skirt and/or dress
its the 60s mod look that i love

Dusk said...

Sabine... with legs like that, it is a crime to hide them... you know... illegal!!!!

Leia said...

You are wearing my absolute favorite colors! You look gorgeous! I'm scared of short skirts because I feel I always have to worry about bending over, sitting, etc. - don't know how you manage it! :)

THESTREETFASHION5XPRO said...

I like that skirt...great photos and post!
Beautiful colors!

Sniff said...

Great looking outfit! Love those floppy sunhats!

Dancing Branflake said...

Haha! That's a great story. I always wear longer skirts. I love how they flow against my legs.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Dusk - You always crack me up!

Leia - Thank you! I guess I just show my behind (involunatarily). I surely try to wear decent underwear with mini skirts.

Tanvi said...

These some fabulous colors worn together. And you are so fit. You have amazing legs. Perfect for Mini's ... Infact this should be your uniform. Wear only Mini's ... oh-what-the-heck Make it Only Mirco Mini :) *hehe* Feeling the beauty of summer with all these pretty clothes.

Fashionistable said...

Very funny about the IT guy. Your skirt worked in your favour :-).
Love the colours you have put together for this look. Xxxx

SogniSorrisi said...

Lol! I could only imagine! I work in a very traditional corporate environment, so a skirt of that length wouldn't fly here! Actually, they're still debating whether any length skirts should be worn with pantyhose as well?! and you wonder why I hate this job :o/ Fortunately, you had the legs to pull off this skirt length in or out of the office :)

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

sexy legs Sabine...sure they're not insured?! I seldom wear mini skirt, my legs are just too pale looking!
xo*

Jen said...

Hey Girl - Love the skirt! They make your legs look a mile long!

joy said...

The hat ties everything together. When will you wear your hair down Sabine?

Cindy Whitehead said...

beautiful summer colors - your legs are amazing!!

Marinka said...

That skirt is really nice! But that must have been embarassing at work,lol..But this look really suits you its nice for the summer and the beach I think :)

Devina said...

Great outfit... Loved the color...
P.S.
You have great legs...

BusyB said...

not sure what it is about this year but.... I want HATS! that hat is great (outfit too!)

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ah Sabine you have an amazing body! Personally, I prefer short lengths over longer lengths - I find that they are quite often a bit more flattering to one's figure. Gorgeous skirt!! :)

Daphne said...

Well, your legs are incredible, so you HAVE TO wear skirts! I agree with the above comment, though, that sometimes shorter is more flattering. There is a very specific part of my leg that skirts need to hit to be flattering. Somewhere mid-thigh-ish.
I also love these colours together.

simplychic said...

i've been living in mini skirts this summer. i would have worked out the legs a little harder this spring if i would have known...

Le Sigh of a Fashionista said...

I agree, short skirts are summer time staples!!

The Zhush said...

If I had your stems...I would live in mini skirts! (jealous)

E said...

Fantastic analogy. And this look screams summer with the wonderful bright colors. Love it.

Clare said...

Girl you have got such a body. I just can't get over it. You can make anything look amazing!

Eliza said...

hahah I love this. I love the skirt first of all, but your gin and tonics comment made me smile even wider. it is my most favorite thing to sip on during the summer!

But really, you look amazing. lovely lovely !

Vintage Vixen said...

"With that skirt, luv...." God, how I don't miss the good old office banter, not!
Your legs are utterly fabulous and it would be a crime not to display them proudly.
Gin and tonic...mmmmmm

Fashion Cappuccino said...

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

OMG Sabine I LOVE that outfit! You look amazing, love!

Kazuko said...

oh i love the floppy hat on you! you should wear hats like that more often (I can see you in a similar one but suede and bigger). you can really pull it off! the whole outfit is actually really cute and i love the greens in your pics. especially the leaves in the second one.

call it naive - i like women who wear skirts like that in a totally natural way, i find it really charming (i'm not talking about girls who know exActly why they wear a mini-mini skirt)!

Angie Muresan said...

Haha. Oh well. The colleague probably wished you had asked him, and if the colleague was a woman, she probably wished she had your legs.
I agree, summer and short skirts go very well together.

Struggler said...

Too funny! I confess, I haven't read all the above comments, but I find that if a skirt feels a bit too short for office wear, then some nice thick winter tights do the trick. Which is fine in December, not so sure what works in June!

Jesa said...

Oh! I love this!!!stumbled on your blog -lovely!!

Cheers, Jesa

Orchid said...

love these 2 shots...and the outfit too!!!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Hi sweetie! Finally getting back into the swing of things :) Love this outfit! The colors are just perfect and that hat is amazing. You look gorgeous, as usual :)

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! xoxo
