Yes, the perfect skirt does exist. Well, one such skirt is now in my closet. It's long enough to cover my knees. It's got 2 deep pockets that actually button closed, good for carrying my wallet and keys. It's a nice shade of brown (blue or black would've been better, but I can't be that fussy). It was reasonably priced. And it fit! I found this gem at H&M after leaving the gym this afternoon.
Other things happened today, but they pale in the face of this great find.
