The Mullet Skirt

Top: Forever 21 | Skirt: Urban Outfitters (similar) | Shoes: Michael Kors (similar) | Necklace worn as Bracelet c/o Twillypop | Necklace c/o Anna Delores

Never did I ever think that I’d write a blog post with the word “Mullet” in the title.  That just cracks me up.  And no, I’m not referring to the hairstyle (wouldn’t that be kind of awesome if I surprised you all with a mullet haircut) but I’m referring to this new trend for skirts/dress/tops!  It’s where the front is short and the back is long, also known as “hi lo” or “high low” or “hi low”.  I’d been on the hunt for the perfect mullet skirt to add to my wardrobe and last month I was at Urban Outfitters and found this perfect floral skirt just hanging on a rack all by itself with some other dresses (it was in the wrong section).  I quickly picked it up, realized it was my size and headed down to the dressing room.  I put it on and was SO SO happy that it fit.  And then I was determined to buy a nice top that would pull out one of the colors from the skirt.  Of course Forever 21 did not fail me in finding the perfect peplum ruffle tank.  My nude Michael Kors heeled sandals I got from Nordstrom Rack, beautiful aqua bracelet from Twillypop and fun Santa Monica ferris wheel necklace from Anna Delores were just what I needed to top this look off.

On a complete different subject, some of you may have seen on Twitter, this past Saturday I got into a car accident while I was driving my car with my Mom and little baby Austin in the car.  It was a fender bender where me and the other car were both turning left out of parking lots across the street from each other.  My car got hit on the front right headlight area and thank goodness NO ONE WAS HURT.  Baby A slept through the whole thing and none of us got whiplash or anything since the speed was pretty slow.  Just wanted to say thank you for all those that prayed for us and we are all OK.  I was just shaken up a bit and am nervous about driving, but life goes on.  So this is just a friendly reminder to all to please drive safe and pay attention to the roads at all times, life is precious.

P.S. The winner of the Fresh Tangerine layering bracelets giveaway is Pamela W of Heartbreak Boutique!

Do you own any mullet skirts, dresses, tops?

    You look so cute! It totally is scary being in a car accident anytime but especially with a little one. Z and I, where in an accident when my mother in love was driving us to the mall and it happened in a parking lot too. Guy ran a stop sign. She was only 5 weeks old. I was so scared for her, but she was fine. Glad to hear that everyone is safe!

    I’m personally not a fan of the “mullet” tops/skirts, but I do really love your outfit! The colors are fantastic, and that skirt is pretty cute. πŸ™‚

    such an adorable outfit, sandy! love the fun colors and heck YES i’m a fan of “mullet skirts” maybe not that name hahaha but yes, LOVE them ;-D xoxo linds of http://www.rubygirlblog.com

  31. April 23, 2012 / 11:25 pm

    I’m very glad to hear that no one got hurt in the accident. It’s always scary to be in any way involved in one of those, that’s for sure. Also, I can’t seem to find one of these skirts that fits into my wardrobe but I’m having fun seeing all of the ones other people have found. Yours is no exception. (:

  32. April 24, 2012 / 12:10 am

    you look absolutely stunning!! I love this skirt on you!! I’m glad you are okay too!

  33. April 24, 2012 / 1:46 am

    I somehow missed that you’d been in an accident! I’m so glad you guys are okay!!

    You’re beautiful, by the way – everything looks good on you!

  34. April 24, 2012 / 2:40 am

    Thank the Lord you are all safe! You look great in the skirt. I think I’d better pass on that one – I haven’t got great knees lol! Perhaps I could turn it round….

  35. April 24, 2012 / 3:21 am

    Thank goodness you are ok!! Oh my…

    I love these colours on you too πŸ™‚

  36. April 24, 2012 / 5:54 am

    omg…. so happy to hear that no one was hurt, but it must’ve been scary…. baby austin is ok.

    i love mullet/asymmetrical skirts! i actually bought a few last month, but haven’t had the chance to wear it yet. love the colors, and love how you styled it. you look feminine, romantic and ravishing at the same time, sandy!

    you take care, sandy!

  37. April 24, 2012 / 7:34 am

    How funny – a mullet skirt! I’m cracking up right now :-)!!! The outfit is lovely, looks just like spring. Oh, and yes, I’ve got a “mullet” dress – just didn’t know what to call it until today. Bahahaha!

  38. April 24, 2012 / 2:50 pm

    You coined a new term! Thanks for sharing this floral delight on Momtrends.

    I love this hi-lo trend and the colors of this skirt are perfect for spring and summer!

    I hope you will visit again!

  41. April 24, 2012 / 10:00 pm

    Oh my goodness!! So glad that everyone was ok!! Fender benders suck…and can make someone anxious about driving again. I know because I’ve been through it. Like you said, life goes on ..and we have to get to point A to point B. It takes time to get back to “normal” again, but things like that makes us more cautious.
    P.S. Remember when you posted about Biskoff spread?? Well, I finally had it for the first time this past weekend at my friend’s house. She asked me if I’ve heard of it…and I have (from your post)!!! Now, my husband and I love it…maybe more than nutella?? Just thought I’d let ya know!!

  45. April 28, 2012 / 10:07 pm
