Lynnell Loves: Summer Skirts

Forever 21 . . . why do you taunt me so? Why do you make adorable skirts that would barely cover my bum? Why do you think ANYONE (especially 14 year olds) should wear skirts that barely cover their bum? You think we aren't willing to pay a whopping extra 5 to 10 bucks for a few more inches (although they sell a few longer skirts and plus size skirts at pretty much the same price points)? Wake up Forever.

Here are a couple skirts I WISH they had made longer. 
Scalloped Eyelet Skirt

Marina Mini Skirt (I'd snip that ugly chain)
Speaking of skirts, I noticed that Anthropologie added some new outfits to their site, one of which had been rolling around in my head already. I have similar pieces to the ones that are in the "Blue Cove" look from the new  "Aquatic" collection. Problem is, I have been trying to find the right skirt. I want it to have some pink in it to go with my Coach Parker bag. Here are the items I have (or very similar) and the Blue Cove outfit (on the right) posted on Anthro's site today.

 Here are a few skirts I've been considering. 
From JCrew: Watercolor Potpouri Mini $49.99 (on sale but could use a % off) 
Would go great with the Parker bag.
From Forever 21:
Lush Blotted Skirt  $19.80
I tried this on in the store and liked the artsy print, and that it had the pink in it, 
but wasn't a big fan of the elastic waist. 
Summer Garden Satin Skirt $19.80
I wonder if this will make me look like I'm 12. It doesn't look like a true Satin in the photo which would be good.  
Seriously over priced skirts from Anthropologie (would have to play the sale waiting game):
Royal Poinciana Skirt $78
I wonder if I'll get bored with it after a season and then wish I hadn't paid so much.
Even on sale this would be $40
It's Your Move Skirt $98
Also might make me look like I'm 12 but it is so sweet. 
And finally from Urban Outfitters: Kimchi Blue Sunset Stripe Skirt $48
 This might even be close to the same shade of chambray my shirt is, if it isn't though it could look like I was trying to match it but didn't quite make it.
