Skating On Thin Ice

P1140873 P1140866

Okay, so I’m super glad that skater skirts are a thing these days, but it seems like trying to find good ones in plus sizes is needlessly difficult/expensive! As with pretty much every item of clothing I have ever lusted after, but this seems pretty basic and like it should be easier. I want skater skirts in cute spring colors, too! This is ASOS Curve’s cheap version (cheap for ASOS, anyway. The expensive one is something I’m sure you’ve seen around, it’s a tailored skirt made of better fabric, and it has a belt), and it’s pretty nice (though I should have gone down another size, this is almost too big). It’s made of a stretchy jersey with a decent weight to it, and there’s also a black version I might have to pick up too. And I really hope they come out with some nice springy pastels, coral or mint or lilac or something.

That’s where my silly title comes from, anyway: Spring is coming! The ice is thawing! At last. Sort of. It snowed yesterday here. But, you know, I like to keep hoping, and at some point, I have to be right!
