i really liked these ruffle skirts from gap. they are a good length, and light enough for the summer. it's kind of like that prairie skirt thing a few years ago, but not as long. i remember when i first bought one of those skirts, my mom asked me if i went shopping in the pioneer section. funny, mom. and even funnier, she ended up getting her own prairie skirt later. look, she's got her gladiator sandals on!
