What I'd Wear Wednesday: help me decide

What I'd wear today if I could: I can't decide! I love both of these skirts:

This is a skirt by INC. I have so been wishing to wear a swingy skirt, and this one looks so of-the-moment somehow. It's short but not too short.

But this skirt by Not Your Daughter's Jeans (love the name!) has a "tummy tuck" feature, and denim goes with everything.

Which skirt do you like better? Or do you like them both?

Speaking of skirts, please vote for my contribution to Sk*rt here as part of a Parent Bloggers Network contest. When you read my story, I guarantee you'll feel super-great about yourself all week. Please! Have a laugh on me! Why not enter the contest yourself while you're at it? Voting ends Friday.

I love them both. The first you have to have a small butt to wear, or else you have a well advertised shelf. I know I have one.

The second skirt (not form that company but identical cut) I had in 3 different jean shades and was my favorite staple for years!! The longer flowing skirt is more forgiving to the butt.

But since this is fantasy, get both!

I like the first one better, but I think it's because I'm short (5'2") and long skirts make me look very Laura Ingalls.

I agree with Kristi! I like the first one better.

Tummy tuck feature? What's that about? I need that?

The first one seems more summery, but the denim you could wear into fall.

I'm a big fan of denim skirts, but I like number one better. It's just spunkier.

I like the first by far. That's probably because I'm not a fan of denim skirts.

For summer, I'd go for #1!

I like the first, too. Maybe because it's so hot here this week, that denim is the farthest thing from my mind.

But I don't think you need a small butt to wear that skirt. You need to get it in a size that fits, and wear a top that's the right length. The skirt flares out enough that the butt should be de-emphasized, I think

But am I misunderstanding the implication of "what I would wear if I could?" Why can't you wear those skirts? Do they only come in size 2 or something? Or are you like me, who already has so many clothes in her closet and drawers that anything new is pretty much forbidden until I get rid of the old? ;)

First, I like the first one better.
Second (((((hugs))))) for your post up above. I can't find a way to comment there, so I'm commenting here! We all have rough days. I have an 18 month old that doesn't sleep so well. I get tired, I get stressed, he gets crabby, then the two others get crabby. Some days we simply stay in pajamas and relax at home. It's okay to take a few days off. And it's okay to not be perfect. But I think you're a good mom overall and there will be bad days, but hopefully there will be good days there and in 20 years the memories of the good ones are the ones that will take up most of the space in your heart!

The top one nudges the bottom out by a nose. I like the patterns--and wish I had her figure dang it.

Ok, just read something in my bloglines purporting to be from you- it referenced mom jeans. The imposter should step away from the computer and let the divine, even with squealing shild and frustrated spirit, Damselfly back to the computer.

Bad days are part of the deal, but no contest or crying will change how truly amazing you are.

Definitely the top one.

I like them both, but I'd be more likely to wear the second one!

The jean skirt is FABULOUS!
