Lately, we've noticed we've been unintentionally straying from busy prints and opting for more solids + subtle down patterns.  Finding simple skirts that are still good quality is surprisingly difficult and a lot of the vintage ones we find are pricey or not in great condition.   So, after being tempted by all the fund prints on her site, we were super excited to try these simple, solid colored skirts from Lil' Lou Lou.  The Jivin' Skirts are offered in a selection of pastel colors, which makes them perfect for more classic vintage looks.

The deets on the skirts include: 1) a wider waistband than the average reproduction swing skirt, which can be problematic for you short-waisted ladies.  I (Amanda) have mine sort of scrunched a bit and hidden under my belt but you can see on Katie what the full length of the waistband is.  They also have pockets and are made of a thick cotton so while I chose to wear an underskirt, Katie did not, and you can't see her underthings through the fabric.... which you know, is a plus ;) We were really pleased with how vintage-authentic these look and we can't wait to buy a couple more to have as wardrobe staples.
