I'm saying goodbye to maxi skirts for awhile and hello to my knees.

Fashion trends, as most people know, are incredibly cyclical. The climbing hemlines of the late '60s are reappearing in 2015 thanks to designers like Saint Laurent, and I couldn't be happier. It's not that I'm a huge fan of my legs, but I find the shorter cuts flattering and lengthening, whereas the trendy midi- and maxi-skirts of the last few seasons seemed to dwarf my figure.

Earlier this week I took a vintage suede mini out of my closet, a garment I usually wore in the winter over thick black tights, and decided it was ready for a Summer appearance. To ease a bit of my discomfort over showing so much skin, I wore sheer, printed tights, which left me feeling a bit more covered up but still stylish.

With a vintage floral crop top, Ferragamo flats and A.J. Morgan sunglasses, I was feelin' swell. I headed out to a NXNE show here in Toronto and ended up meeting Wreckless Eric! All in all, a pretty successful outfit/evening.

Are you guys into the miniskirt trend or will you be steering clear?

In the meantime, let's check out what you wore last week. I talked a lot about nail art, and you guys didn't disappoint in your own nail pics. Zap Rowsdower blew my mind with her adorable self-created manicure and fresh, Summery outfit. I wish I had your nail painting skills!

Those nails ...

... matching those sandals!

I'm also loving Madelin's approach to the blues - throw on a gown and frolic around the house. That smile is infectious, and she looks fabulous!

Now I can't wait to see what you've been wearing this week. Have an awesome weekend, everyone, and be sure to snap plenty of outfit photos!
