I love my heels and plan to wear them deep into my age of wisdom, even if that only means to Sunday church service. But even though I'm a die hard shoe

Beyond the fact of being a little worn out this morning, I always wear a low pump or flats with this skirt.
I have a love/hate relationship with the skirt actually, though I've had a for about three years and loved it when I bought it. Over time I began to feel that it was:
1. A bit too short, not excessively so, but shorter than what I seem used to at the office.
2. It feels waaay short if I put it on with higher heels.
3. The flounciness of it never worked well with a blazer to balance out it's extra girly factor, it just my behind area look rather unflattering.
Despite all that, it somehow manages to continue being saved from the give away/throw away/sell/Salvation Army pile when I purge my closet two to three times during the year. I keep wardrobe items for a really long time, even ones that I've worn only once in three years or more, because you just know when something is a wardrobe staple that'll keep on giving. But then there are times you're just like, "why did I buy this?" or "I know I'm never gonna wear this again" and those things go in the purge pile.
But I really liked this look and the way it added flirtiness to the dots, stripes and punches of color. So for now it's a mainstay, since it's actually been earning it's keep.
