In our fitted black tops and sheer midis, Wendy and I made our way to BMO's Fashion Saturday to preview the Spring 2015 runway trends from Toronto Fashion Week. We saw a lot of feminine silhouettes, pastel hues and floral accents - all which were very dreamy and spring-appropriate!

Here's my modern take on a 1950s classic: the midi skirt. I love the demure silhouette and beautiful shape, but what I noticed is that fuller midis can be tricky to pull off. I kept it as simple as possible by pairing this rose jacquard midi with a form-fitting cropped sweater and a pair of heeled sandals for a ladylike and sophisticated appearance.
